Located in Traverse City Michigan, this lovely 5 yr. old Lodge sits on a private 1 acre lot with 100 ft. of sandy beach frontage on beautiful High Lake, a peaceful 50 acre semi private lake with very low water traffic but much natural beauty including the wild life and water fowl. Even the Bald Eagles nest here. Located only 4 miles from the Cherry Capital Airport, 8 miles from down town Traverse City and just 7-9 miles from the beautiful East & West Grand Traverse Bays yet in the winter you can snowmobile, cross country ski, snowshoe or ice fish right from the Lodge, only ¼ mile to groomed trails,(maps are available), and in the summer the lake is wonderful for swimming and any water sport.
