About Tammy Jobson

I have managed Blue Lakes Vacation Rentals in Traverse City for over 14 years.

Tammy Jobson purchased this house in 2003

Why Tammy Jobson chose Northwest

This home is unique in that it is only a few miles from downtown Traverse City, yet it is surrounded by a local nature conservancy. This means that you'll feel like you're really getting away from it all while you're very close to town.

What makes this house unique

Free pontoon boat, water trampoline, kayaks and paddle boat.

Wonderful winter weekend

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful cabin for two nights to celebrate our daughter's 18th birthday. There were 2 adults, 4 girls and 2 dogs; plenty of room for all. The cabin is absolutely gorgeous, very well built and maintained, with tasteful lodge decor & all the comforts of home. The girls went to Timberlee for snowtubing, but we stayed at the cabin & relaxed This is the ideal vacation cabin by a lake- which we can't wait to see on our next rental here in warm weather!

Winter in Traverse City

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's first winter vacation and our stay at the Cedar Lake lodge/cabin was perfect. The cabin was great for the 8 of us - all adults. Plenty of space to relax and enjoy the beautiful view of the snowfall and lake. A bit of a drive to Shanty Creek ski resort but still worth it. Traverse City is a very picturesque city especially with the Christmas lights adorning buildings and homes. We are thinking that a summer vacation would be just as fun and would book this cabin in a heartbeat!

Winter Wonderland

  • 5 of 5

This was our first winter cabin experience.  Truly it's a beautiful lodge/cabin!  Our children are all teens and we went on our first snowmobilind ride.  It was an experience of a lifetime for our family that we are not soon to forget.  I would do it all again.   We were all packed to go and decided we would be back.  Maybe we'll try summer next.

We had a fantastic week here at Cedar Lake.  We are three families with 2 children each.  The kids had a blast fishing (the biggest fish we cought was a 14.5" bass).  They also loved swimming and jumping on the trampolis.  We enjoyed barbequing and sitting around the bonfire.  We took a day trip to Petosky and Mission Point for a day at the beaches.  We were also lucky enough to hit the sidewalk sales in dowtown Traverse City.  Each day brought us lots of laughs and memories.  We will always remember the special times with such special friends here at Cedar Lake.
