We have been hosting visitors to the Traverse City area since 1989. We strive to provide a clean and comfortable home for you during your visit to the Traverse City area. Our own home is located on the property so we are available for sight-seeing advice, restaurant recommendations as well as just being here for our guests. Our reservation process is a traditional up-north cottage rental process with a bit of modernization. We send all the information via the Internet, but once someone wants to make a reservation, we reach out and contact them so we can personally answer questions, and establish a connection with our future guests.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: My husband, Tom and I were married in 1979. We moved to Traverse City in 1980 from the city of Detroit. My mother was raised on an local farm. My maternal great grandparents were pioneers to the area. My mother moved away when she was a young adult. I developed my love for the area as a young child as we vacationed every year in Traverse City. Tom and I honeymooned in Traverse City and moved here 9 months later. We raised our 5 children in Traverse City. The photo shows my husband, our 5 children, my uncle as well as myself.

Why the Owner Chose Traverse City:
We discovered and purchased our small resort in 1989. It was a diamond in the rough, but it had a great private sandy beach and was in close to Traverse City. We remodeled the cottages as we raised our 5 children. We worked on the cottages as a family. Over the years, our children have learned many skills and developed a great work ethic as everyone helped over the years.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We take great pride in providing clean/comfortable/updated homes that our guests will call home during their stay. You will be able to relax and enjoy your vacation as we are very available for assistance as we live on site
