4 Bedrooms, 2 baths, Sleeps 9, 1900 sf
Lake Ann is located about 20 minutes west of Traverse City between Interlochen and Beulah (Crystal Lake). We have been coming here for over 20 years and would like to share our "piece of heaven" with your family. Our cottage/home is suitable for families with young children through teens, a fun girls getaway, or older couples. This is not a party house!
This is a 4 bedroom/2 bath cottage that comfortably sleeps 9 in beds. There also are two sleeper sofas: one in the Great Room upstairs (Queen-sized) and one in the lower level room (Full-sized) on site. Those rooms each have televisions. Our favorite area is the 3 season room where a lot of your time will be spent when not outside. The house is also equipped with a full kitchen, dining area and laundry.
The cottage sits on 110' of sandy frontage on our beautiful and peaceful 576 acre all sports lake. Lake Ann is a spring fed lake and we are told one of the cleanest in Northern Michigan! Fish for blue gill, sunfish, bass, pike and brown trout. We offer a fishing boat and kayaks for your use. The L-shaped dock has a sun deck with a sandy swim area and a swim raft which is great for all ages to enjoy! You can relax on the large two level deck with great views of the lake; watch for the bald eagles to fly by or the loons to do some fishing just past the end of the dock. Near the shore there is a nice level grassy area where you can have fun and play yard games. We also off a fire pit where you can roast hot dogs and make s'mores while singing your favorite campfire songs or tell stories around the fire. The neighborhood is a great place to walk, jog or ride bikes.
The town of Lake Ann is just minutes away where you will find Lake Ann Brewery, Stone Oven Restaurant, Lake Ann Grocery Store ("If we don't have it; you don't need it"), Red Door Coffee Shop, a public boat launch and a park.
Lake Ann is a short 20-30 minute drive to Traverse City and the National Cherry Festival, Glen Arbor and the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park, Crystal Mountain Ski Resort, Interlochen National School of the Arts and much, much more. Nearby attractions: Moomer's Ice Cream, the Cherry Bowl Drive-in Theater, the Traverse City Beach Bums, Platte River canoeing and kayaking, Leelanau and old Mission peninsula Wine tours, there are lots of area golf courses and terrific food for the foodies in the group! This area offers something for everyone.
If you have not been able to spend some time in Northern Michigan in the Fall...now is the time! The colors are incredible! The number of tourist are down from the summer months; so it is a great time to try out some of the restaurants or golf courses that are so busy during the summer months!
