Traverse City house description

***** Please email us if the time your looking for is booked at this property! We JUST purchased a 2nd 6 bed bath Property on the very same lake. It will be 4000.00 a week for the summer of 2015. Currently remodeling it, so we can send before pics to those interested********

Opportunities to have your family vacation, family reunion, etc in a place like this don't come along very often.

This is our family home, not just another cottage on the lake. Located on an exclusive private road, often called Millionaires Row by locals, due to those who live on the road. The views alone are breath taking.

You'll notice in the pictures, we spent the winter of 2013 completely remodeling our home. Brand new hickory floors, drywall, paint, electrical, plumbing, windows, 5 all new decks, etc etc. The beach area has been redone, and new washed beach sand added to the shoreline to ensure plenty of space for the little ones. Work won't allow us to move in Until September 2015, so we're opening our home up to families looking for an amazing vacation opportunity.

Home has 5 (yes 5) decks, totaling more then 3500sqft of outdoor deck space. By far the best feature of this house, every room has deck access. The bedrooms all have their own sliders to private decks, and the Den and Dining rooms both exit onto the main lake side deck. This home has sunset views that you will not soon forget. Home over looks two of long lakes 5 islands. Both of the islands directly in front of the house offer additional nature trails etc.

Living room has floor to ceiling windows, measuring just over 20ft high, and over 20 feet wide! All new 7in hickory hardwood floors throughout!

More then enough room for just a single family, or multiple families vacationing together. The floor plan lends itself to privacy. Upstairs there are four bedrooms, each sharing 1 bath (2 beds, with 1 bath in between. The bedrooms are separated by along cat walk. We've set the house up so parents can be near their children if they like. Each bedroom has a King or Queen bed, with two Twin beds in the adjoining bedroom. (I have a copy of the floor plan that I can email on request).

Each of the 'adult' bedrooms have Flat Screen TV's. Cable and WiFi are included, although we suggest disconnecting and enjoying the surrounding nature.

Main floor has a 5th bedroom, with a king size bed as well. Then in the finished basement, there is a 6th bedroom, again with a King Bed, AND A private bath with walk in Sauna.

10+ person dining table. Ample out door seating and eating space, grill, etc.

But lets not forget the main reason to vacation in Traverse City, the outdoor activities. Just a few blocks down forest lodge is a trail to the former Girl Scout camp. It has since been converted to a nature conservation area, with miles of trails, two small private lakes, and several rustic buildings to explore. Hiking this area is an extremely popular past time.

The home also has over 100ft of direct lake frontage, with sandy lake bottom. A large deck directly at lake level gives plenty of room to stretch out and enjoy the beautiful, although brief, Michigan Summer. There's also a fire pit on this lower level for smores, and hot dog cook outs!

Dock is over 100ft long, and your welcome to bring you boat, toys etc.

Unlike most rentals, we do provide sheets, towel etc. There is a washer and dryer on site, and your welcome to do a load of laundry before heading back to reality. Pets are always welcome, their a member of the family, and we see no reason to leave them behind.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. We live in the Royal Oak Area, and can even meet around Metro Detroit if need be to do the lease agreements, payments etc.

Let us know if your interested in renting a Pontoon for your time at the home, and we can organize that for you as well.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2013

          About the owner: This is our actual family home. I was blessed to grow up directly across the lake from this property, and my Parents still live in my childhood home, and my brother lives on the lake as well. We've spent months and virtually all of our savings, rebuilding this property. All new floors, drywall, plumbing, roof, windows, decks, etc etc. This is where we want to raise our children. My wife is currently pregnant, and due in early October. We've agreed not to move to Traverse until the fall of 2015, to give her mother a chance to watch the new baby grow etc. So in the mean time, we want your family to enjoy this property as much as we know we will.

          Why the Owner Chose Traverse City:
          You just can't rent a true family home, in an area like this. I know the area very well, everything else on the market are 'income properties'. Crowded lots, haven't been updated since the 50's etc. Please keep in mind, this is a FAMILY home. NOT a Hotel, Not a new construction. If you've never been to the area, let us know, and we'll let you know what to expect. This is a wilderness protected area. Across the street, is a nature preserve, and at the end of the road is a massive nature park that can never be developed. If escaping to the woods, with mind blowing sun sets is what your after, without other 'vacationers' directly next door is what your after, you can't beat this home.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          There are essentially three master suites in the home. If you're traveling with older family members, or multiple families, you will have plenty of privacy! Also, the entire living room are 24x24ft windows. So the views from the living room are very impressive.
