About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths recently updated and right on the water, very clean
This is not a resort and not a over used rental, but our home. If you'd like the feel of "your own place" for the week, this is the place for you!
The perfect quiet location just minutes from Downtown Traverse City's action, the Interlochen Arts Academy, and even the Lake Michigan lakeshore /Sleeping Bear Dunes--while quietly letting you relax on an all sports lake that is not crowded!
After vacationing at many VRBO properties, we have decided to share our place with other families to enjoy. From our experiences, we know what it is like to walk into and rent a home for our family. These experiences have allowed us to create an experience that will save you many headaches and get the maximum fun and relaxation time out of your holiday with us!
Fully equipped home with a large deck overlooking the grassy yard leading to your own private waterfront , dock (fishing and mooring of your boat) make this home a prefect getaway for the whole family to relax, unwind and watch the kids play. Minimal noise and traffic on the road and lakefront area--as we are located off the busy roads on a quiet peninsula, away from 'most' of the tourist!. If you want the city life or it rains, the 'big town' of Traverse city is only 15 minutes away!
This house has a great living room with the whole lakeside wall of glass, and a beautiful view of the lake. This is a great place for the kids to play, watch TV, and make noise, and be kids--while making memories.
On the beach is a hammock and large fire pit for campfire stories or making some hobo pie treats. Yes the irons are in the house for you to use! Out by the water are at least three kayaks for you also to use, if you desire. You also get your own private dock!
After a long day of play, there is even a hot tub in which you can relax and watch the stars come out! It does not get much better that that...
The house has three bed room and three baths.--non of which are huge, but you'll be playing outside so much, you'll barely notice. One bedroom is actually a loft with a king sized tempurpedic matress--- ahhhhhhhh is all I can say about that space!

golfing, fishing, playing, relaxing, sleeping. The center of the peninsula has a park with tennis courts, grills, basketball, volleyball and shuffleboard areas. Plus a walk around the peninsula is a perfect 2 mile stroll--a popular pasting to "work off" vacations calories!
Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: My family likes to play outside. We have rebuilt this entire place with relaxation and comfort in mind. No visitors have ever had a less than expected experience and many return year after year. Our prime time summer openings are few, but we can't see keeping the tranquility to ourselves, and make it available when we are not able to use it. Therefore, it is not the 'typical rental', but is our other home. You will get to enjoy a comfortable place that feels like your OWN place--and not get the outrageous tax bill associated!!!
Why the Owner Chose Duck Lake Peninsula, MI, USA:
The Traverse City area and northern Michigan are unequaled in summer vacation values. It is as beautiful as any place in the States, and cost much less for a family to vacation than many of the East coast areas. In fact, it is fun to watch how many east cost license plates we see vacationing in OUR vacation land!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Quietness. While most lakefront homes have a busy road zooming by one side of the cottage/house, ours is located on a quiet peninsula with only one road on and off. The only traffic, other than pedestrians, is from the local home owners-- as there are very few homes available to rent in this area. This makes for an unusually peaceful vacation and no surprises squealing down the road! Also the location of the place allows for a zillion different day trip adventures. It is also the center for fishing...either right off the dock or to one of many nearby lakes! Yes you can tie your boat up to the dock right at the end of our own private yard.
