Property description

Rent this beautiful Grand Traverse Bay home and it will certainly become your family's 'summer at the cottage' tradition! Relax at this peaceful north woods retreat and swim for hours, walk the sugar sand beach for miles, enjoy breathtaking sunsets and beach bonfires, and let the sound of the waves lull you to sleep.

This lakefront home on Grand Traverse Bay overlooks the Leelanau Peninsula. We are conveniently located in Eastport, which is between the harbor towns of Elk Rapids and Charlevoix where there is great shopping, wonderful restaurants, art fairs, and a variety of golf courses such as A-ga-ming on Torch Lake and Antrim Dells. We are also surrounded by scenic orchards including u-pick and farm markets of all kinds for great fruit and fun!

This home is located on two acres in a quiet wooded setting off a private road great for walking and biking. The two-story home offers 2700 square feet of living space: four walkout bedrooms (king, two queens, one double), three full baths (includes master), family room, living room and dining area, kitchen, and laundry. All rooms (except kitchen/baths) have sliding glass doors with Lake Michigan views and lead to extensive decks in the front, back, and down to the beach.

The home is fully furnished inside and out for your enjoyment and is sure to become your 'up north' getaway!
