              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About the owner: My husband Dan and I have been cottaging on Bass Lake since 1969. It has been our dream to share our little piece of heaven with others for years. Our dream has finally become a reality. We hope you enjoy our lakeside retreat and the surrounding Traverse City area as much as we have over the years. Welcome.

              Why the Owner Chose Traverse City:
              It chose us, family memories, growing up as a teachers kid, spending our summers, sunning, boating, and swimming. When the opportunity came up, it was just a natural fit.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              You are 10 minutes from downtown Traverse, yet you may think its Northern Canada by the lake views. The nature, deer, wild life, and fishing are awesome. Boat launch nearby, and dock on property. Quiet and relaxing and fun for the kids.
