Traverse City cottage description

This unique cottage is off the beaten path yet minutes away from the beautiful, historic town of Traverse City! Stay and relax next to the tranquil Boardman River. This one-of-a-kind location offers all kinds of activities including: kayaking, tubing, hiking, swimming, and fishing to name a few. I offer guide services for most all of your adventures (if requested). I will take the time to make sure your stay is the best possible. I can help you get to know nature, learn how to start a great campfire for smores, or leave you alone to enjoy the solitude of this pristine area in God's country. Give me a call or e-mail for more information and list of activities.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: My family absolutely loves the outdoors and we also live on the Boardman River down stream. We enjoy kayaking, gardening, hiking, and bird watching. We take our two dogs for long hikes on the state land while looking for new exciting finds that the woods have to offer. We are also excited to share this with others who share our passion for the outdoors. This cottage is a unique place!

                  Why the Owner Chose Traverse City:
                  I purchased this property quite honestly because I have been here most of my life and I have found it to be in one of the best locations in the area. I love the outdoors but like the fact that I can be in Traverse City quickly with a beautiful drive to get there. The wildlife, fresh air, and of course the Boardman river being steps away, well you just can't beat it. I see all types of birds , deer, fox, partridge, well it goes on and on. Truly it has all the flavor of the now well known 'Pure Michigan.' And how about the Fall Colors

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Wildlife including: deer, turkeys, partridge, rabbits, bobcats, and ducks. Birdwatching: Piliated woodpeckers, eagles, hawks, owls, hummingbirds, and orioles. Hiking, fourwheeling, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, cross country skiing. Beautiful view of river. Kayaking, tubing, fishing, and swimming. And lets not forget the fall colors! Also we have the Chery festival in July, the Horse show in July, and the Film festival after that!
