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!
