Traverse City is less than 4 1/5 miles to its popular West side activities. It is a unique two bedroom cottage filled with natural light and wonderful panoramic views of Power Island, Old Mission Peninsula, white caped waves, fishing and vintage sailing schooners sailing by and fantastic unforgettable moon lit waters. There are two bedrooms with one full bath on the second floor and a half bath, on the main level. The stairway leads to a bridge on the second floor that connects the master bedroom to the sky lit bathroom and walk in closet. The laundry is located in the basement. Although a mere five minutes from downtown, the large shaded yard facing the water, offers privacy that seems farther away. The location is literally surrounded by northern attractions; wine tasting is within walking distance as is the bike path that connects Traverse City to Sutton's Bay. There are a number of light houses to visit. Northport lighthouse is 25 miles north on M-22, and Old Mission is located on the end of the same peninsula, visible from the cottage.

The cottage has West Bay shared access with a small beach . Boating from the beach and the use of an existing mooring ball are available. Power Island is a favorite boating destination. There are many nearby parks and beaches as well.

You can cook meals in the fully equipped kitchen or grill out on a large deck overlooking flower beds, a landscaped yard and Traverse Citys West Bay. After dinner, relax, sip wine and watch the moon rise over the beautiful ever changing water. This cottage has been featured in Traverse The Magazine and Northern Express paper as well as other publications. It is close to all that the Grand Traverse area and Leelanau County have to offer. The cottage has central air conditioning. Wireless internet is provided as well as basic television and roku.

                                                            Very comfortable home with fascinating décor and a spectacular view of the lake. Great beds, sofa bed was good as well for the teenager. Kitchen is fine for a cooking vacationer's needs. Everything we wanted to do was conveniently close. Owner was helpful and we would happily return to this property.

                                                            It was very artsy and unique. I loved it

                                                            When i first walked in i wasnt sure if im going to love it. As soon as i opened the next door , my jaw dropped. Im a very artistic person and there was art EVERYWHERE. All kinds of paintings, carvings, stones, rugs, guitars, wood. It was just beautiful . I loved the big window in thr living room, i had my cat with me so she loved that too. The place was super clean, i was planning on cleaning up before i settle in and it was so clean that i didnt have to. Im very impressed. The owner was supposed to come by but i was bummed he didnt since the whole group wanted to meet him since the place was super different and artsy. We were all wondering if hes an artist himself. Ive been to alot of cabins/cottages and i have to say this isnt your typical cottage. I took alot of pictures of the walls and the different art and photos he had. It definitely made the experience one of a kind. Will deff rebook in the future.

                                                            Close enough to TC, but far enough out of town to get away from the crowds! Excellent bay view!

                                                            Older cottage with open concept, pretty outdoor gardens. Small but full kitchen with everything you need (for a party of 4). A little close to the noise of M22, but that's how you get an amazing view of the bay!!!
