About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-6)
The Bass Lake Lodge is located on Bass Lake six miles outside of Traverse City. Bass Lake is a small, spring-fed lake that is nestled between Silver Lake and Long Lake. It is a 343 acre all sports lake which offers a peaceful and quiet atmosphere. It also offers beautiful fall colors!
There are four islands on the lake, each one making it more unique. There is a small public beach and boat launch which is located one mile away from the house. The south end of the lake is surrounded by State Lands and a girl scout camp, which offers a nice spot for fishing. There is lots of wildlife in, on and around the water; each year we see a pair of loons that nest nearby on the lake. And, the lake is also home to a majestic bald eagle!
The Bass Lake Lodge is centrally located; six miles to Traverse City and seven miles to Interlochen. (Interlochen is home to the Interlochen Center for the Arts National Music Camp.)
The Bass Lake Lodge is 1350 square feet and is filled with knotty pine paneling and tongue and groove boards throughout the home, which gives it a beautiful 'cabin' feeling.
Several remodels have taken place over the years, including:
~Winter of 2009 - new carpeting, light fixtures, drywall/paint, porcelain & limestone tile.
~The bathroom was remodeled in winter of 2010 - new tub, porcelain tile and commode. ~A new couch, reclining chairs and dining room table set were added as well.
~A custom kitchen was added in the fall of 2011; offering hickory cabinets (filled with everything imaginable to make cooking meals a breeze). A new 'larger' refridgerator (with an icemaker and water dispenser) and a dishwasher were added. The porcelain floor tile accentuates the coordinating countertoop and backsplash - which give you lots of room for preparing food.
~ a new roof and siding added late 2016. During this remodel, the wood burning fireplace was replaced with a gas fireplace. *One click of a switch and you can enjoy a cozy fire while viewing the beautiful scenery outdoors through one of the many windows facing the lake.
The home also has a laundry room with commercial size washer and dryer. And, there is also private WIFI at the rental at no extra charge.
The landscape of the home has soft grass (summertime) and lots of flowers. A bonfire pit is located near the water and is surrounded by a large concrete patio. (Firewood is provided for your convenience.) There is a large deck on the back of the home which overlooks the lake and a beautiful sunrise. There is a 4' x 40' non slip dock with a 8' x 16' patio on the water. The rental includes the use of a row boat and a 5 person paddle boat (summertime only). Life jackets are provided.
Come to The Bass Lake Lodge to relax and enjoy beautiful Northern Michigan.

Year Purchased: 1995
About the owner: Originally built by my Father and Grandfather, the home has been part of my family for many years. Over that time, it has been remodeled, with the most recent updates currently being performed. (This includes, a new roof, siding, fireplace, stone and tile.) I grew up down the street from the home, then resided in it for several years until a job transfer moved me out of town. At which time I turned it into a vacation rental. Since then, I have moved back and now live across the street from the rental. The neighborhood is definately the place to be! I refer to it as my own little piece of Heaven. Most of the residents in the area have been here for quite some time. It is located off of the 'beaten path' but is still close to everything! I have put a lot of thought into the rental with the intention of making your vacation as easy and enjoyable for you as possible. From linens to everything you might need in the kitchen as well as firewood and life vests are just a few of the no charge extras that I provide. It is exactly as it is advertised, no surprises! Previous guests have thanked me and provided me several nice comments on the rental, check out my comments from previous guests to learn more! I hope you will be as excited to vacation at The Bass Lake Lodge as I am to live in this wonderful area!
Why the Owner Chose Traverse City, MI, USA:
This home was built by my Father and Grandfather. After purchasing it and living in it for several years, I turned it into a vacation rental as my job took me out of town for several years. I enjoy the rental business and decided to keep it going after I returned to the area.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Bass Lake Lodge is in a quiet, friendly neighborhood that is conveniently located to Traverse City, Interlochen and many other area attractions. It is set on a 343 acre, all sports lake which offers great fishing, beautiful views and lots of wildlife. The rental is filled with lots of extra amenities that will make your vacation that much better! The rental has a fantastic view of the sunrise as well. And, the owner lives nearby in case you need anything special.
