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.

Color Tour Weekend
We really enjoyed our stay. Very comfortable cottage. Awesome view and perfect weather.
A Little Slice of Heaven on Green Lake in Interlochen
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!
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!
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
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.
Perfect location for 3-generation getaway
This was just right for our Labor Day family getaway "Up North" with six adults and two children ages 3 and 4. The house was spacious enough that we never felt like we were on top of each other, and I think that has a lot to do with the remodeling that the owner must have recently done -- I loved the separate dining space off the entrance, and the upper level is just stunning. There was a desk for those who needed to get some work done (unfortunately!). Our little ones loved the small bedroom off the upstairs, and the adjacent den was a great spot for them to watch movies and play yet still be close enough that the adults could hear all was well. The lake is "across the street," but we're talking about 15 steps and you're there. The kitchen is VERY well-equipped -- plenty of dishes and glasses for everyone without having to run the dishwasher constantly. The old stove worked SO great! One burner seemed a little less hot but hey, that's part of the charm. Everything was in working order, and the house is even nicer than the photos make it seem. The porch swing, or "swing chair" as my 3 year old called it, was a HUGE hit with the kids and adults. And the small fire pit/ring in the front yard was JUST perfect for s'mores after dinner. Like others have said in reviews, the location is grand as well -- away from the high prices of Traverse City but close enough that you can go to Sleeping Bear Dunes, Glen Arbor, Leelanau and Old Mission Peninsulas, etc., and not feel like you've been in the car the whole trip. There are two large, well-stocked grocery stores only a couple miles away, which made making meals at home convenient and easy. The only *slight* negative was the size of the bedrooms on the lower level, especially the one that uses the bathroom in the hallway, but after one night, we felt like it was just part of the cozy charm. We would stay again in a heartbeat.
Bikes are available to ride to the Interlochen Arts Academy just 2 miles away. Listen to 'free' concerts on campus outside Kresege auditorium at Interlochen Center for the Arts or purchase tickets to enjoy incredible evening performances as you watch the sun set on the lake from your seats.
