Property description

Hidden Lore is a magnificent lakefront home beautifully positioned on the shore along Old Mission Peninsula’s Bluff Road just south of Willow Point. It features a natural fireplace, hardwood floors and walls of windows facing the East Bay. This home was renovated in 2010 and has a fully equipped Kitchen with granite countertops, flat screen television and free Wi-Fi. The Master Bedroom has private bath with whirlpool and shower, king sized bed and corner windows. Both Guest Bedrooms have queen beds. The Bonus Room has large sectional sofa and 3 Murphy-style beds. The 2nd Bath has double vanities and tub/shower. Please look at our pictures for further details. Full-sized washer and dryer are located in the Master Bath

Enjoy times along the beach, relax on the huge deck or at the end of the dock and watch the boats, cook your supper on the gas grill, then let the soft sound of the water lapping on shore lull you to sleep at night. All you have to do is crack open a window in the master bedroom and you WILL hear the water on even the quietest nights.

This beachfront house is on the very prestigious Old Mission Peninsula, known for it’s long history, multiple vineyards, awesome restaurants and old Lighthouse. Traverse City’s renowned Front Street is only 8.5 miles away, playing host to fun shops, galleries, breweries, restaurants and State Theatre, recently voted by the Motion Picture Association of America as the #1 movie theater in the world.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We live on Florida's west coast and have many family members throughout Michigan.

Why the Owner Chose Traverse City:
With so many family members already living in Michigan, we wanted a vacation home that all could enjoy. We looked at neighborhoods throughout NW Michigan and fell in love with this home. Old Mission Peninsula is a one-of-a-kind location.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Very Narrow Beach (lake levels are rising) - there are small rocks close to shore and you may want to bring water shoes--see photos. Long dock, great for fishing, during the summer months. Clear lake water. Direct lake views from Master Bedroom, Living Room, Kitchen, Guest Room 1 and Bonus Room. Lots to do and enjoy within a 10-15 minute drive.
