This beautiful family cottage is ideally located on a small point surrounded by peaceful Lake George, a small, quiet no-wake lake with great fishing and swimming, just 12 miles SE of Traverse City. The home features an eat-in kitchen with all appliances and amenities, two full bathrooms, a master suite with queen sized pillow-top bed and two smaller bedrooms with a shared door between them. One of the smaller bedrooms has a double bed, the other has a set of single trundle beds. The living room features a double hide-a-bed and plenty of comfy chairs. The Cottage sleeps a total of 8.
Lake George is a quiet lake without public access. Motor boats (other than trolling motors) are not allowed, meaning that your vacation will truly be peaceful. Public access sites to both Arbutus and Spider Lakes are just minutes away if you have a motorized boat. The cottage includes a swimming raft, an aluminum canoe, paddles and life preservers of various sizes.
Please note that the Cottage is located in a residential area with permanent residents next door. As such, groups looking for a place for big parties or loud music should look at other properties.)
At the Miller Family Cottage you'll leave the hustle, bustle and noise of bigger lakes behind the minute you drive down the driveway. Once there, you'll see that the Cottage is a place to unwind, relax and reconnect. Yet the excitement of larger lakes, Grand Traverse Bay and Traverse City are just minutes away.

The cottage is all on one level, with one step down from the house onto the deck. It's barrier free from the parking area into the house. However, the lake side of the cottage requires 4 steps to get off the deck and the lakefront area has tree roots and moss that makes it unsuitable for wheelchairs. ...moreless

About the owner: Our parents purchased the cottage in the mid seventies when we were children and living in Traverse City. Our family moved to Alma in 1976 and the cottage remained a family get-away. After our parents retired, they spent every summer living at the cottage. They remodeled the kitchen and added a nice master bedroom. The house is filled with comfortable furniture and family history. Three generations of our family have loved the cottage and we're delighted to be able to share it with our summer guests.
Why the Owner Chose Traverse City: The cottage on Lake George Trail is a lovely haven away from the bustle of Traverse City. You are just 15 minutes from all of the exciting things that the Grand Traverse Region has to offer. After a day of sightseeing, climbing the sand dunes, shopping or partaking of the exciting events of local festivals, you can come home to a quiet and peaceful retreat. But you might also get so relaxed napping on the deck or lying on the raft that you might decide never to go into town!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Once you arrive at the cottage, you'll immediately head for the lake, and within a few minutes you'll realize what a special place the cottage is.
