We have too many summer commitments (darn kids--hahaha) and too little time to go to use our cottage, so we are offering our place to you!
This is not a resort and not an "over used" rental, but our second home. If you'd like the feel of "your own place" for the week, this is the place for you! Huge glass wall gives a great view of the yard extending to the waterfront. Watch the kids play in the oversized yard--from the comfort of the couch! Lots of clean wood inside to give it the feel of a northern cottage, while all the comforts of home.
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!
One of the best features of this place is that many of the 'little things' are already there and included. For example: we leave you some starter laundry detergent, toilet paper, a cupboard of some spices, bandaids, etc. You don't have to run to the store for some salt/ pepper, garlic salt type stuff! The kind of things you really don't want to make a special trip to the store to get...is already here for you!
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!
Best lakeside area on the lake with a newly built tiki bar (finishing touches coming in 2019) and a new swim raft/ slide platform in the water (added summer of 2018). This has proven to be a fun addition to playing in the water. It even attracts the uninvited neighbors on occasion!
The house has three bed rooms and three baths.--none 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! New Central air installed for those few days in the summer that get a little too warm, although the house stays pretty cool on its own.
