Why Paul and Jean Kirchner chose Traverse City

Very private and yet close to Traverse City.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Notes:
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.

Nice small cottage for a fall visit

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this Lakefront cottage. It has everything you need to be comfortable and relax. We tooled around the lake in the kayaks and relaxed in the hot tub. The only thing a little difficult for us was the double bed in the cabin. It's a comfortable bed, but when you're used to a king at home space is an issue. But there's plenty of other beds for sleeping comfort. It was nice to have a pleasant place to stay so close to everything we wanted to do. We ventured out several days to see the Sleeping Bear Dunes, lighthouses, breweries and wineries. We enjoyed every evening and morning overlooking the lake. It's very peaceful in the fall. Our older dogs enjoyed a few swims in the lake as well.

Beautiful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was so cozy and welcoming along with the guest house! My daughter loved sleeping in the loft. We went kayaking, paddle boating, or fishing in the rowboat almost everyday. The hot tub was very relaxing. We had multiple bonfires during our stay!😃 Thank you!

Location of this property was close to all kinds of amenities but really seemed remote.

  • 5 of 5

Our family came together at this cabin to reflect and reconnect after the sudden loss of a family member. It provided everything we needed and the owners couldn't have been nicer. The peace and serenity was what we enjoyed most.

Tiny Cottage/Big Fun

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 4 had a great time fishing & boating while staying at this very small cottage (+ bunk house that sleeps 2) that sits on a small shallow lake. The cute house was off the beaten path, quiet, and yet close to shopping and tourist activities (Sleeping Bear Dunes, hiking, beaches, shopping). Make sure to enjoy lots of outdoor activities, sour cherry pie, and Moomer's ice cream if you visit Traverse City.
