Traverse City cottage description

Lakestone Cottage boasts a private beach on crystal blue Long Lake, with a sandy bottom at the shallow shoreline leading out to the pristine deep blue water. Perfect for children, dogs and adults. The spectacular sunset views, directly across the lake, and the calling of the loons create a seldom experienced serenity. The cottage, built in 1936, is one of the few original homes in the area, and the property was choice for all the right reasons! The well maintained, picturesque stone cottage, modernized in the 1950's, features a natural fireplace, wrap around picture windows to enjoy the water and sunset views, and a true retro kitchen to help recall the mid-century simpler, relaxed lifestyle. A completely remodeled new bathroom, the cable television with DVD player, along with wireless broadband access and central air conditioning provides the expected current necessities. The kitchen is also outfitted with a microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer.

2,900 acre Long Lake, just a 9 minute drive from downtown Traverse City, is renowed for it's walleye and perch fishing and is one of the larger lakes in NW Michigan. 4 single seating kayaks and lifejackets are stored on site and ready for your use! Power boats, jet skis and pontoon boats are available at several area rentals to enable you to enjoy all the amenities this beautiful lake has to offer. Not in the least of which are the 4 islands with sandy beaches and hiking trails waiting to be explored. We have provided 2 anchored markers to moor a boat and extra parking adjacent to the garage for boat trailor parking. The Long Lake boat launch is just minutes away as shown on the map.

The natural stone fire ring near the shore beckons to be used for an enjoyable evening of roasting smores while watching the sunsets. Private seating by and on the new dock, a hammock and extra seating throughout the lush lawn, as well as the patio with a gas grill, provide quiet relaxation from a day of sight seeing, touring wineries, biking the trails, fishing, etc. No wonder National Geographic Magazine just voted the Grand Traverse area one of the top 10 family vacation spots in the world. Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park is 20 miles to the west and Interlochen Arts Academy is 5 miles to the south. Lakestone Cottage is the perfect home base for a week of exploring and playing hard with all that the area has to offer. (Or a sweet little hide-a-way for some quiet time.) Upon booking we will provide information on what will be happening throughout the area, as something is always going on!

All linens and full cooking and dining ware are included to enhance your stay. A full size grocery store is just 4 miles away and 2 queen size beds provide sleeping for 4.
