  • Wonderful vacation destination

    "My family of four (kids 7 and 9) had a wonderful time at the Bass Lake Lodge. We have vacationed in Traverse City many times but the first time on Bass Lake. The location is great! We found the cottage exceptionally clean and comfortable and stocked with everything you would need to feel at home, and then some! My son (9) caught 7 fish in the lake. The lake was very quiet. Not really a sandy bottom for swimming but throw some water shoes on and the kids did okay. Great value for what you get!! We hope to return some day."

  • Perfect!

    "I am a little hesitate to write this review, I would like to be selfish and keep this little gem just available for our use :) It really was perfect, perfect, perfect. The location is great, it was very comfortable. Very clean. Amazing sun rises. Perfect beach. We had a little issue, thanks to mother nature with some bugs, but Duane helped us deal with that. Highly recommend and yes we will be back, hopefully soon Chuck and Judy, Grand Rapids MI"

  • Stay here! You won't regret it!

    "The was our 2nd year staying at this lovely cottage and it was another wonderful one!!! Great TC weather topped off our great stay at this wonderful, homy cottage!! PROS: -Extremely clean -Extremely well-stocked everything (all the amenities of home and then some!!) -Great location (seems to be 5 minutes from everything; downtown TC, the mall, etc.) -Situated on a fantastic lake (it's warmer than the bays, very clean! -Nice, newer dock (great spot to fish from) -Ample seating outdoors -Patio area is a great spot to eat lunch/dinner with fantastic views of the lake -The deck has 2 nice bistro sets which are great for eating lunch or enjoying morning coffee -The front room is nice and sunny with GREAT views of the lake (large windows) -Furniture is extremely comfortable -The "cabin" room houses the TV, a SUPER long, comfy couch and a game table -a favorite spot to play late night games (there are many games there for both kids and adults) -The downstairs game room is a nice spot for rainy days (ping pong table, foosball table, gaming system for older kids) -Plenty of recreational amenities (tons of life vests, a paddle boat, 2 kayaks, fishing poles) -The bedrooms are spacious and very inviting -Bunk room for the kids is AWESOME (and there's a small bonus room in the bunk room that is fantastic if you have a baby and will be bringing along a pack n' play) -Beach is sandy and ample for kids to play -Swimming area is shallow enough for kids to swim close by shore -Nice floating dock CONS: -To us, the only real drawback of this house might be the landscaping just on the yard facing the lake. This house is absolutely adorable and, while it does not at all effect the functionality of the house, the clearing out of the property that sits on the water (going up both sides of the hill and around the basement area) would make this property so attractive. This is really the only reason we gave this home a 4 out of 5 stars. I wouldn't even really list the landscaping as a "con", but I figured people would think it was too good to be true if there weren't at least one! If you are a family looking for a wonderful vacation spot, this truly is the place for you. Silver Lake is beautiful and, for us, it's a nice break from the traffic of downtown TC. You're close to it all, but far enough away to have a peaceful vacation!!!! Thank you to the owners for another wonderful stay!"

Traverse City Travel Tips

Experience a Rejuvenating Return to Nature at Traverse City Vacation Rentals

Traverse City is the definitive "Up North" experience for Michigan! If you want beaches, forest trails, great shopping, and fantastic restaurants, they're all within your reach. There's lots of Traverse City lodging available for your vacation. With just the click of a button, you could be spending your next summer getaway at one of the many Northwest Michigan lake houses available in Traverse City.

Redefine Comfort with a Traverse City Vacation Home

Staying at tacky, overpriced hotels while vacationing is a bad habit that needs to be stopped immediately. You'll understand why the minute you step foot in a vacation home. Instead of cramped, homes are spacious and expansive, giving you and your family all the room you need to stretch out. Instead of waiting for your turn to use the shower, you can enjoy multiple bathrooms, in addition to multiple bedrooms, a living room, a dining room, and whatever your heart desires. Instead of eating whatever the continental breakfast or nearby drive-thru has to offer, cook your own meals from the comfort of your very own kitchen. And instead of retreating to the balcony—if your hotel even has one—you could enjoy a backyard with a lake.

The Best of Northern Michigan

Traverse City strikes the perfect balance between large town and quiet summer getaway. There's plenty to do here including hiking though the beautiful forests, boating on Lake Michigan, or enjoying any of the multiple beaches in the area. Go on an adventurous stroll through the rolling Sleeping Bear Dunes, check out some local brews at a microbrewery, and enjoy all the fine dining and shopping this fantastic town has to offer.
