Car: Recommended

Our two luxury lodges are located on 500 acres of beautiful, remote, privately owned land. Great for biking, hiking, fishing, and much more. The lodge is only 6 miles from beautiful Traverse City and the Twin Bays, and only 2 miles from the luxurious Turtle Creek Casino and Hotel, yet still tucked away perfectly in the wilderness.

*Please note that weekly rental is per lodge.

Year Purchased: 2004

About: I am the daughter of the property owner. I take pride in my work and the quality of my rental properties. Your experience is my priority!

Why Williamsburg:
Private but close proximity to all that Grand Traverse, Antrim, and Leelanau counties have to offer.

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
This retreat is ideal for vacationers trying to get away from the city, but not too far. One can set their mind free by wandering the 500 acres of virgin forest, then find themselves again by relaxing in front of one of the many fireplaces. This can all be done only 7.0 miles from the many attractions that beautiful Traverse City has to offer!
