Traverse City cottage description

Now reserving for Fall of 2014.

Come and enjoy your next family vacation in Northern Michigan. Our cottage is located on Little Traverse Lake in beautiful Leelanau County along the picturesque M22 scenic highway. It is just a short drive to the Sleeping Bear Dunes, voted the #1 vacation destination in America. The house is directly on the lake, with no road or obstruction between the house and the water, with a large deck for outdoor eating and grilling and beautiful sunsets year round.

The Lake House has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The first bedroom has a king bed, the second has a queen, the third is a bunkroom with 2 bunks with full beds on the bottom and twins on top and the fourth bedroom has one bunk with full on the bottom and twin on top. Perfect for 2 families to share, or cozy enough for a couple to enjoy on their own.

The entire front of the home is windows directly overlooking the beautiful sunsets over Little Traverse Lake. Inside, there is a large, knotty pine living room with a cathedral ceiling and a massive fieldstone fireplace, a fully-stocked kitchen with a gorgeous lake view, all within steps of the water. For those of you who prefer to do your cooking outdoors, there is a large deck built just outside the sliding glass doors, with a gas grill for the full outdoor experience. There is also a fire pit in front of the home, perfect for a campfire and some s'mores.

Relax and leave your worries behind. Come enjoy the splendor of a fantastic Northern Michigan experience without having to pack the kitchen sink. Our cottage comes fully equipped from the kitchen utensils to bed linens.

Traverse Lake is located in Leelanau County between Leland and Glen Arbor. The Lake is within the Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore and close to several of Northwest Michigan's many attractions. It is adjacent to the National Lakeshore property which offers miles of heavily forested trails, as well as beautiful, Lake Michigan shoreline to take walks or hunt for Petoskey stones.

This cottage is built very close to the lakeshore. If you want to get any closer to the water, you have to jump in!
