About the Property
Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9-12)
We love our fires at night, we have a fire pit overlooking the water. It's an awesome view and you will enjoy hearing the water calmly roll into the rocks as you sit by the fire.
1,800 square feet on 3/4 of an acre with one of the best waterfronts on West Bay! Former beach photos show the awesome view of the waterfront!
We have made many renovations to make it an enjoyable and relaxing environment. To mention a few: gutted the kitchen and bath(s), 8 ft door wall and two French doors that open up to the huge deck (20 x 40), natural stone exterior, knotty pine walls and tile galore, plus hundreds of other items you would never notice!
The house is set off the road and we have plenty of room for additional parking on the side lot, driveway holds 4-6 vehicles.
Our house is your house, make yourself at home!

Additional information about rental rates
- Taxes Not included
After we receive your full payment and prior to your arrival we will deliver instructions as to how to enter the cottage. Feel free to call at any time, even while you're up there! More than 8 people is an additional charge, please call for rates if you have 4 people or less. Also, cleaning is very expensive, I want to come back in my next life as a Traverse City house cleaner, LOL! Average is about $100 every time, this has caused me to raise my rates. Sorry!! Weekend rentals are a full pay only and I do not offer payments through VRBO because it takes forever to receive payments (several months!!). If you want to pay by credit card, please notify me and you can pay through paypal. Personal checks are always welcome.
Owner's cancellation policy:
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Don't forget your vacation protection! Get protected now
Adding our Vacation Protection services can make sure your getaway goes smoothly, no matter what. We offer Cancellation Protection and Damage Protection so you can truly relax.
We have a large selection of games available including a basketball net, pool table, beach toys, inflatables, horse shoes, volleyball net, soccer ball and some fishing equipment. Of course it is hard to guarantee that all of these things will work when you get there because it is difficult to monitor their condition. As you can imagine, things break and turn up missing but we really try to keep a good selection of items available. I would venture to say that we have way more than most homes you would rent!!
Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: My wife and I have been married for over 14 years and we have a beautiful daughter. We love spending time in our cottage and we share it with our many friends. We feel blessed to be able to share it with all of the wonderful people who have rented from us in the past. We've met so many wonderful people and we really enjoy hearing about your time in TC.
Why the Owner Chose Elmwood charter Township, MI, USA:
My parents have had a cottage in Traverse City for over 25 years and it was always a goal of mine to have a family getaway in that area. We just love the Traverse City area and plan on to retire up there in about 10 years!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We really spend our time relaxing. We often go up there with a long list of activities and find ourselves night after night in front of the fire pit. Just listening to the water crash on the shore and watching out for the Bald Eagles flying across the water, you just can't beat it!!
