About the property

Looking for a Winter Getaway? You've come to the right place. Not far from Crystal Mountain and Hickory Hills, you can ski by day and cozy by the fire in our unique cedar cabin by night. Nearby Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park offer tons of winter activities including snowshoeing and sledding. Also close by are cross country and snowmobiling trails (sorry, equipment not provided).

Mornings greet you with stunning sunrises and breathtaking snowscapes as you sip your coffee and take in the view from picture windows overlooking the lake. When you're ready to shop, head up to Traverse City, about twenty minutes away. There you will find not just shops, but unique and renown restaurants, second to none (ask us for recommendations). Looking for a little culture? We share Green Lake with Interlochen Center for the Arts which is a great venue for music and theatre. Once back at the cabin, enjoy an evening by the fire - keep the blinds open so you can catch the moon reflecting off the lake.

You will sleep well, too! Two of the three bedrooms on the main floor boast king size beds with the third 'office' which has an XL twin bed and twin trundle underneath (all with blackout curtains or in-window blinds). Send the kiddos up the spiral staircase (not appropriate for very young children) to the 'loft' where there's ample space to sleep (4 twins) and play (plenty of board games provided). There are two bathrooms.

The kitchen is fully outfitted and the sofa table can be pulled next to the kitchen table for extra seating.

Sorry, no pets, no exceptions, we have allergic guests and allergic owners.

To book, 50% up front, 50% 45 days ahead. Cancellation policy 100% refund when given 60-days notice, non-refundable after that.

Great quiet family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. Perfect for families with young kids as the beach is sandy and shallow. We used the kayaks and rowboat provided as well as brought our own stuff- the lake is wonderfully clear with a soft sandy bottom. Perfect for recreation.

What a wonderful place to vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just spent a week in this beautiful home on Green Lake. Close to Traverse City, as well as Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes, Glen Arbor, Frankfort, and the Leelanau Peninsula. Green Lake is quiet, as are all the surroundings. Plenty of room for our five older kids. Roni, the property manager, was extremely helpful, as were the owners. This is a perfect place to get away Up North!

Fantastic owners, beautiful location, and great home.

  • 5 of 5

No stairs to the water, sand beach, storage for your gear, comfortable beds, clean, and gracious host. Was perfect for our summer family vacation.

Well-tended cottage with character on a beautiful, tranquil lake

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six stayed here for two weeks in July and had a great experience. The cottage isn't fancy, but was just right for "Up North" lake living. Everything we needed was fully stocked, well cared-for, and labeled, down to the after-bite ointment! We loved that there were so many beds available--great for lots of kids. The air conditioning doesn't reach the attic room with the twin beds, but the kids were comfortable with fans. The manager of this property is local and eager to assist with any issues that arise.

There is so much to do within 45 minutes of Green Lake--the Sleeping Bear National Seashore, tons of hiking, kayaking, shopping, visiting the nearby Interlochen Arts Academy. We like the tranquility of this lake the best, though, and listening to the loons while sipping coffee on the front porch.
