About the property

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This Charming Cabin (located 12 miles north of Traverse City and 30 miles east of Sleeping Bear Sand dunes) offers plenty of room for two families to vacation together or is cozy for one family to enjoy as well. Swimming/boating in the all sports lake, building campfires and singing songs, grilling and enjoying a great meal on the large deck are just a small fraction of things to enjoy on your vacation. Let the children explore the 3 1/2 acre property while you relax in the hot tub. Cooking is a dream in the large kitchen.

Curl up with a good book by the gas/stone fireplace or play one of the many card or board games offered in the cabin. Have your first cup of coffee in the gazebo and watch the sun rise. Bring your bikes and ride the Leelanau Trail to Suttons Bay or Traverse city. You will build lasting memories with your friends and family at our cabin on the lake.

About Shelly Grant

Our family operated the resort that this cabin is a part of since 1976. The other cabins were sold to seperate owners in 2001. Dad operates this cabin with the help of his adult children and their families.

Why Shelly Grant chose Traverse City

We did not need to take a vacation because we were living at the best vacation spot in the world. Our family memories of growing up on the lake, playing in the water, singing songs around the campfire and watersking are special times we hope to pass on to other families.

What makes this cabin unique

One of our many favorite things to do at our cabin is sit in the hot tub after a dip in the lake and watch the sun set. Going on little adventures to the sand dunes, Lake Michigan or canoeing down local rivers are treasured memories to our families.

Construction taking place during stay

  • 1 of 5

During our stay there was construction and our outdoor space was unusable. We had to leave all day to get away from machine noise. The owner gave us no warning so we could book elsewhere.

Owner's Response: We were very sorry for the disruption the grounds improvement project made for our guests. As we were not the mangers of the shared grounds project we were unaware of equipment failure which extended the work into our guest stay. We would have welcomed the opportunity to address and improve our guests experience had they contacted us during their stay. In any event we promptly refunded 100% of their rental fee once they made us aware of the situation.

Another great stay at this lovely cabin. It's close to the bicycle trails, lake front and not far from town. The sunsets are spectacular!

Beautiful setting, close to Sutton’s Bay and Traverse City. Great place to getaway. Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this place due the setting with serene lake, bonfire and hot tub. It comfortably slept 8, and can sleep up to 10. We were surprised how big the home actually is. Perfect for our ladies weekend! Shelly was so easy to work with, very responsive. A pleasant experience all around.

Great property, nice view, cute cottage

  • 4 of 5

Our group stayed the weekend of October 12-15th for a low key bachelorette party. Plenty of room to sleep for our 6 girls!

The hot tub was amazing!

I would only caution on a couple of things which did not get in the way of our stay as we are not picky...

1. Bring bottled water and gallons of water. We had bottles only which worked fine but the sulfur in the water is pretty intense.

2. The oven would not fully heat up for us so we were creative with our cooking strategies.

3. The coffee maker was a bit slow so I would start brewing your coffee about 30 or more minutes before you want to drink it. Or go north on Lake Leelanau Rd to 204 and get fresh brewed. It’s only a few minutes away.

4. The fridge seal seems like it doesn’t shut but it does... just keep your food to the front as the food we had in the far back got pretty frosty.

As I said- these things did not interfere with the great fun had this weekend. Would definitely recommend.

Clean, roomy, great view

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed the fireplace and hot tub! Large, open living and dining area, with main bath near bedrooms (each with door for privacy).

Kitchen well stocked with large toaster, coffee pot, stove, kitchen towels, and dishes.

The resort was safe and well lighted-probably would have liked a little more light blockage for bedroom windows.

Very nice stay!
