Other Amenities

  • This cottage is adored by couples for honeymoons and anniversaries because of its private location, close to Traverse City. Families with small children love the quiet location with sandy bottom lake. The bunkhouse is a unique feature that is especially helpful if some family members desire/require a private space or quiet space for parts of the day. It is self contained minus the kitchen so older children or grandma and grandpa can have their own retreat. The west facing great room and deck are the perfect place to watch amazing sunsets over Bass Lake. Many visitors report seeing nesting eagles and other native water birds near the cottage. It is in a private location with only one other neighbor at the end of the road. Credit cards are preferred for reservations....moreless

Manager info

Why Traverse City, MI, USA:
Very private and yet close to Traverse City.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The bunkhouse, adjacent to the main cabin offers a custom space with all wood interior, where you can awake in an upper bunk overlooking the lake or relax in the floor level living space with a built in table, large screen TV, private bath with a shower and a closet that holds the stackable washer dryer for the property. It is very nice for families or couples want some separation while having the main cabin and other amenities to share. Summer 2016 we added a lakeside enclosed gazebo to allow you to be outside in a mosquito free dining and relaxing area. The cottage is offers a PRIVATE LOCATION on the end of a seasonal road with NESTING EAGLES and abundant wildlife, a sandy bottomed lake, AMAZING SUNSETS and only minutes from downtown Traverse City. BOATS AND A HOT TUB ARE INCLUDED in the price of your rental.
