              Car: Recommended

              The small village of Lake Ann is halfway between Traverse City and Sleeping Bear Dunes. Leelanau County wineries are just a couple of miles north. Lake Michigan beaches are a 15 minute drive to M-22 and Sleeping Bear Dunes. We love Lake Ann because it is a quick drive east to Traverse City for shopping and restaurants and a quick drive west to the dunes, beaches, trails, and canoeing.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2012

              About the owner: Owners Matt and Bethany live in Lansing with their two children Elijah and Amelia. Matt works for the State promoting recycling and composting and Bethany is a stay at home Mom.

              Why the Owner Chose Traverse City:
              Bethany grew up on Bryan Lake. She has many wonderful childhood memories of the lake from learning how to swim, to fishing, to catching turtles, to endless hours of just playing in the water with friends and her brothers. Her immediate family all still live in the area and trips north every week in the summer are the norm. The family could hardly believe their luck when this great home on Bryan Lake became available. While not able to live in the home permanently yet, the couple looks forward to teaching their young children how to swim, catch turtles, fish and enjoy the tranquility and beauty of the lake when the home is not rented out during the summer.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The Village of Lake Ann is centrally located between Traverse City to the East, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lake Shore to the West, Leelanau Wineries to the North and Interlochen Arts Academy to the South. Day trips to all of these locations are short and easy, but the home and lake themselves have plenty to keep everyone occupied and happy. Bryan Lake is a small, non-motorized boat lake. A cup of coffee can be enjoyed on the deck or dock in peace and quiet and kids can swim and play safely without worry of speedboats or jet skis. Loons can be heard on the lake at night and bald eagles frequently fly overhead. The lake is great for fishing, turtle hunting, swimming or just enjoying a leisurely boat ride. For those who enjoy water skiing etc, all sports Ann Lake is literally just across the street and a boat launch is only a mile away.
