High lake, traverse city
High lake, traverse city
We had a wonderful time! The cottage was very spacious, even had a pool table for more entertainment. We loved the lake, little beach area, pontoon, fire pits, nice deck with large table. It was close enough to downtown traverse city for more entertainment as well. I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone, its very nice. We would love to go back!
