Property description

This is our family cottage that we completely renovated in 2008. We have decided to rent it during the times that we are not able to enjoy it. If you are looking for a place close to Traverse City that is on a quiet lake - this is your place! This is a part of a small resort that also has a few other cottages for rent.

This cozy cottage has 3 bedrooms and one bathroom. There is bedding for 11 people, however it is probably most comfortable for a family of 6. A nice open floor plan with a kitchen, dining area and living room. There is a very large deck that has three seating areas for dining as well as adirondack chairs for relaxing. There is also a fire pit area with a swing and chairs. We also have 4 single kayaks and a 2 person paddle boat that is yours to use free of charge. For those with kids, we also have a kid cabin that they will enjoy. (Adults may also enjoy the top deck of that as well for a beautiful view of the lake while drinking your morning coffee.) Please note that there is no internet or air conditioning. We do have satellite TV new as of 2015.

There are so many fun things to do in the Traverse City area.

Very near the cottage are several choices:
- Boones Long Lake Inn
- Moomers Ice Cream
- Interlochen

Traverse City is just a short driver away and offers downtown shopping, several restaurants and waterfront.

There are also many cute towns along the peninsula as well as wineries and casinos. You will not be disappointed in this area!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Kevin has been spending his summers on Bass Lake at his best friend's family cottage since he was young. As a family we have vacationed in the Traverse City many times and have fell in love with the area.

Why the Owner Chose Traverse City:
We had an opportunity to buy this small resort with a few other partners and we each renovated the cabins that we chose. It has been enjoyable to watch the place transform into our own little paradise. We love how close it is to Traverse City, yet so quiet and peaceful.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our cottage is only 2-1/2 hours from our home, so it makes it easy to make a quick weekend getaway trip. We love all the unique things that Traverse City has to offer.
