About the Property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Relaxing, bayside retreat five miles north of charming Elk Rapids on sunset side of Grand Traverse Bay. Located directly across from the tip of Old Mission Peninsula, enjoy the private beach, with custom built fire pit, and bathwater-warm bay water perfect for swimming. Boaters have launch access just down the road as well as a marina nearby. Drink in the nightly sunset on your choice of an expansive enclosed porch or outdoor wraparound deck with BBQ grill. Plenty of space for you and your friends/family with 5 bedrooms, 2 ½ bathrooms. Oversized master bedroom has a queen size bed and overlooks the bay. There is a second bedroom equipped with a queen size bed and a third has a full size bed. Double twin beds occupy the other two bedrooms. Activity room with ping pong table offers a place for fun on rainy days. Large, open kitchen and breakfast bar for morning coffee cake and evening apple pie.

There are also plenty of family friendly activities nearby. A quick trip into downtown Elk Rapids offers old world charm with the best ice cream for miles. A 30 minute drive to Traverse City offers jet skiing, parasailing, miniature golf, shopping and plenty of restaurants. For golfers, you don’t have to search far for championship caliber courses.

Fisherman’s paradise with the bay in your front yard and plenty of nearby lakes.

Close access to wineries along Mission and Leelanau Peninsulas; quick drive to Sleeping Bear Dunes.

Four generations of family members have loved every minute at ‘the cottage,’ and so will you.
