Traverse City house description

We welcome you to our Family Cottage Home! Because our business is seasonal (Spring to Fall) we use our cottage mostly for winter fun. Therefore, we would like to invite you to enjoy our home during the summer time. It's beautiful, yet cozy and comfortable to relax and enjoy Michigan's Up North. It has 2 bedrooms upstairs (one with a full bed & one with a full bed and twin trundle underneath). The bunk house is in the basement with 2 full beds and 2 twin beds. There is a full bath on both levels. Pool table & flat screen TV in the basement! The basement has 2 large sliders with walk out to the lake. The lake is a private, sandy bottom, no wake lake - great fishing, kayaking, swimming. Ideal location for families- many playgrounds around the lake that are within walking distance, washer & dryer on the main floor, basketball court & baseball fields within a mile. Great bike riding & awesome hiking trails in the Manistee National Forest/North Country Trail a few miles away! A whole new set of adventures awaits you 15 minutes north to Traverse City - casino, State Parks, Lake Michigan, Grand Traverse Bay, wineries, breweries, restaurants, shopping, outlet mall. Within 40 minutes is Sleepy Bear Sand Dunes, voted the most beautiful place in America by Good Morning America in 2011! Attached garage, paved driveway on paved road with plenty of parking.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About the owner: We live in Ravenna, Michigan. Trevor grew up here, taught here for 7 years until buying S. Hecksel Farm Drainge from his Uncle. He installs drainage tile and waterways. Kelley works part time as a Nurse Practitioner here. We love year round fun in Michigan, especially with our kids.

              Why the Owner Chose Traverse City:
              We bought this cottage because of it's unique location to Traverse City. We wanted someplace within 2 hours of home and access to snowmobile trails. We enjoy Traverse City and all it has to offer, having spent many holidays in the area in the past.
