Welcome to River Life Paradise! We invite you to our 2 bedroom, 1 bath with fully equipped kitchen cottage located 50 feet from the bank of the beautiful Boardman River with a private patio and yard on 18 acres of private property. Max capacity is 6 people. The Boardman offers tubing, kayaking, and canoeing (we can provide equipment if needed). The river is also a Blue Ribbon trout stream and the fishing is second to none. The water is crystal clear. We also have a hiking trail that guides you along the many natural features of the property. This is great place for a short walk. You will encounter many types of wildlife here. Deer, Porcupine, River Otter, Beaver, Bald Eagles, Hawks, Owls, Osprey, and even the occasional bear. Come and hunt mushrooms or do some bird watching.
We are located 10 miles outside of Traverse City. Far enough from town to enjoy peace and quiet, and a never ending sky full of stars. Yet we are close enough that a quick drive offers so much more to do. Traverse City is the gem of northern Michigan offering world class dining, Breweries, Wineries, and views. We are also a quarter mile from the Michigan ATV and snowmobile trail system. We look forward to seeing you. Book your vacation soon as we fill up quickly.
