Interlochen cottage description

The cottage is built on a 30,000 sq ft lot. A winding unpaved driveway brings you to the garage (not open) and the cottage entrance.

The key feature of the property is the 500 sq ft concrete boathouse deck that runs right to the water and puts you a story above the lake. As the photos show, the westward facing deck offers spectacular sunsets. Over half of the deck is surrounded by tall pines, which shades the deck most of the day during the hot summer months.

The cottage was built in the late 50's and my family added a master bedroom and 2nd bathroom in the early 90's. The cabin is carpeted throughout. Everything about the place is geared toward comfort and relaxation. The furniture is all upholstered and overstuffed. Cottage furniture for a cottage, not a 5 star hotel.

Much of the rustic charm of the original place remains in this 1,500 sq ft cottage. The solid pine-board living area is dominated by a sandstone wood-burning fireplace with a limestone hearth. A wood burning stove sits adjacent to the fireplace and faces the small, open kitchen.

One the best feature of the cottage is the 50 linear feet of floor-to-ceiling windows that face the boathouse deck and then to the lake beyond. One truly feels the outside, inside. Improvements since 2011:

- Resurfaced/rehabilitated boathouse/deck (2012)
- HD TV (2013)
- Internet Connected PS3 Gaming System with Netflix (2012)
- Hypoallergenic Pillows (2013)
- Linens (2013 & 2014)
- King Bed (2013).
- Tankless Water Heaters & Water Filter (2014).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1978

About the owner: My family has owned the property for over 30 years. I inherited it in 2009. We live in Chicagoland and decided to rent it because, quite honestly, the place is too special to let it sit empty 50 weeks a year.

Why the Owner Chose Interlochen:
My parents, sister and I started vacationing in the Interlochen area in the Mid-60's. When they retired, they bought this place. We also have three cousins that own properties on the peninsula.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
My family has always believed that the 2,000 acre Green Lake was the perfect size...not too big, not too small. Boats of all kinds can safely navigate the waters. Even with Interlochen State Park's access to the lake, Green Lake is never overwhelmed with watercraft. Moreover, with the Interlochen Music Camp 10 minutes away, there is great music and entertainment available all summer long.
