About the Property
2 Bdrm, 1 Bath, Lake Front/View Cottage - Minutes from Downtown Traverse City
This property was remodeled in 2009 and now has many comforts of home. It accommodates 4 to 6 people. The lake property has 400 ft. of private beach with a sandy bottom, two rafts and buoys, four 30-ft docks, children's playground, volleyball, basketball, horseshoes, barbecue gas grills and fire pits.
If you are boating and/or fishing, the resort features a large boat house with private secured lockers, a screened-in fish-cleaning house with running water and a boat launch. Pontoon boat rental is available for an additional fee.
This is also a great location if you are planning to take a fall color tour so don't limit yourself just to summer!
Small pets are considered and renters are asked to clean up after them. The resort is not handicap accessible.
The heated vacation cottage has a newer interior, full kitchen with microwave, dishes, pots and pans, coffee maker and toaster. Bed linens and towels are not provided, however bedspreads, pillows and blankets are in the cottage.
The resort and cottage is secluded and quiet, located on wooded Arbutus Lake. Water recreation includes swimming, trophy fishing (small and large mouth bass, blue gill, perch, pike and crappie), boating and water-skiing. Nearby recreation includes golf, tennis, hiking, bicycling, horseback riding and shopping.
