Located in Traverse City Michigan, this lovely 3 yr. new Lodge sits on a private 1 acre lot with 100 ft. of sandy beach frontage on beautiful High Lake, a peaceful 50 acre 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 and just 7-9 miles from the beautiful East & West Grand Traverse Bays but 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 any water sport.

This 2 bdrm 2.3 bath 3,500 sq.ft. rustic beach Lodge can easily accommodate 2-3 families sleeping up to 16, 7 in the upper level and up to 9 in the lower walk out level. 2 queen beds, 1 queen futon, one couch and 4 TV upstairs and 3 double futons, and 4 twin size roll away beds in the lower walk out level as well as a game room with a pool table, bumper pool table, dart board, large flat screen TV and large card table as well as other tables and chairs. The kitchen is fully equipped and a 2nd refrigerator is also available, both have ice makers, along with a beverage cooler located in the lower level. All towels, linens, blankets, soaps and some paper products are provided for your use as well as a washer and dryer on the main level. The upper deck, 50’x16’, has built in benches and other deck furniture for your comfort as well as a gas grill.
