About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Our cottage is tucked away in a quiet community of mostly cottage homes and retired couples. Panoramic sunrise views of Green Lake in its full fall splendor can be seen from any room in the house. Relax with a beverage while sitting on the swing on the wraparound porch or from inside in front of the fireplace on cold nights. If you are sharing your vacation with family or friends, you will want to draw straws as to who sleeps in the second floor master suite, from which you have beautiful lake views. Upstairs you will also find a master bath, a cozy 4th bedroom, a TV sitting room and a computer/office area. Two bedrooms and two baths, a complete kitchen, two dining areas as well as the warm and inviting living room make up the downstairs.

Gourmet dining, shopping and entertainment await you in Traverse City, just 13 miles away. We are the close neighbor of the internationally acclaimed Interlochen Center for the Arts, located just across Green Lake. The quaint village of Interlochen boasts a sandwich shop,an ice cream parlor and Maddy's Tavern, a local favorite with great food. The close-by Hofbrau offers a variety of craft beers. Drive a half hour in the opposite direction to enjoy the quaint little towns of Empire and Frankfort with their sweeping vistas of Lake Michigan along the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Shoreline.

Check out the hiking and biking trail maps in the cottage for a list of the many beautifully wooded trails in the area. If fishing is your pleasure, 2000 acre, all-sport Green Lake is just one of the 50+ area lakes that boast some of Michigan's best fishing and it's right outside your door.Whether you are looking for a relaxing getaway or an opportunity to enjoy your favorite sport, this is the place you've been looking for!

A Little Slice of Heaven on Green Lake in Interlochen

  • 5 of 5

We spent one week at the Dream Catcher with my Husband's two Brothers and their Wives. This "cottage" had plenty of room for the 3 couples; it fit us perfectly. We took turns cooking breakfasts and dinners, which made meals more enjoyable. We had 4 bonfires, thanks to Fred and his endless woodpile. Walter gave us a tour of the lake on his pontoon, which was super nice. The lake is crystal clear, which is perfect for floating on a raft. We shall return!

Cozy getaway

  • 4 of 5

This cottage proved to be a wonderful space to spend a fall weekend. It was perfectly accommodating for 8 adults - 3 full bathrooms, 4 separate sleeping areas, and a kitchen table big enough to fit everyone comfortably. The fireplaces throughout were a nice touch and there were plenty of blankets, towels, dishes, and utensils to make it feel like a home away from home. The property owner was very responsive, proving easy to work with helpful along the way. Plus, the house was tucked away amidst gorgeous fall leaves with a beautiful view of the lake. Would definitely consider staying again.

Perfect For A Girls Getaway!

  • 4 of 5

The Dream Catcher worked beautifully for our group of five adults and two children. So many rentals claim a well stocked kitchen and end up disappointingly unequipped, not the Dream Catcher, there were plenty of dishes and cooking supplies! The cottage was clean and well maintained and we found a bottle of wine waiting for us when we arrived, a lovely touch.

Very nice cottage home on beautiful Green Lake

  • 5 of 5

Six adults and two 3 year old grandchildren spent a week at the Dreamcatcher Cottage. The home is in a very quiet area and sits just across a small road from Green Lake. There is a small association park immediately in front of the cottage, with two small docks and a swimming area. You can see the lake from the cottage and can walk to the water in 30 seconds.

The cottage was well maintained and clean. There are three bathrooms and 3 bedrooms on two levels, so there is plenty of room for all. There are two eating areas as well as a full family room. And 3 fireplaces!

The owner was easy to deal with and prompt in replying to emails.

We used the cottage as a base to swim (in Green Lake) and at adjacent Interlochen State Park. It's an easy drive to Traverse City, Sleeping Bear Dunes, Leland etc.

Great location, nice facilities and a beautiful lake.

Family of Eight

  • 5 of 5

This cottage worked very well for our family of two parents and six kids, ages 7-21. It was our home base for exploring the entire region. Sleeping arrangement were great. We also swam and kayaked in lovely Green Lake. The weather was cool the week we were there, and the fireplace was cozy at night. Grocery stores nearby were convenient.
