About the property

1300 sq. ft, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8-10

This spacious, well-maintained vacation home has everything you need for a carefree, peaceful retreat or family getaway! It is conveniently located 15 minutes from Traverse City on Duck Lake Peninsula - a beautiful wooded community surrounded by lake views, great for walking, biking, boating, or just relaxing and getting away from it all. Easy access to town but peaceful and quiet, away from crowds and traffic. Lake Michigan and Sleeping Bear Dunes Lakeshore are only 30 minutes away.

Duck Lake is a 1900-acre lake with a sandy bottom, excellent for all kinds of watersports as well as fishing. A private boat launch is located just a short distance from the cottage; a lake access area is located across the street for swimming and lakeside picnics. Cook up a feast for your group in our fully-equipped kitchen or outdoors on the gas grill. Enjoy a backyard campfire, or relax by the fireplace while watching your favorite movie or sporting event on the large flat screen TV. Large windows and sliding glass doors provide ample daylight or privacy as needed, with easy access to decks on front and back. Additional amenities for your comfort and convenience include high-speed internet, central AC and heat, ceiling fans, soft water, full-size washer and dryer, and more!

What makes this cottage unique

This beautiful lakeside community includes five lake accesses, a free private boat launch, quiet low-traffic streets, and a community recreation area with playground, covered pavilion, tennis court, basketball court, and volleyball.

Exactly as advertised

  • 5 of 5

A group of 3 of us stayed here for a week long fishing trip. Great place, clean, tidy, nice long driveway to park truck/boats, decent selection of tv channels, and most importantly fast wifi. The owner also checked in on us via text a couple days into our stay just to make sure things were going well......Will definitely be staying here again!!

This cottage is cozy and clean!

  • 5 of 5

The upstairs has 2 bedrooms one with two nice big bunk beds the other a queen. Balconies for both. Upstairs half bath (no tub or shower). Downstairs has master bedroom and bath, kitchen, dining room and living room. There is a washer/ dryer and a 2nd shower in a utility room. Two bikes in the garage were fun to peddle around the peninsula. Gas grill (We didn't use it).

We ate breakfast at the cottage but we went out all day every day of our week.

We loved our stay!!

Location, Location, Location

Owner is pleasant and easy to work with. The peninsula is very quiet and relaxing. Cottage is well equipped with a rustic feel. The location is perfect. 25 minutes to most of Traverse City, 45 minutes to the Dunes and Platte River. 5 minutes to one of the nicest township playgrounds and splash pads we've ever seen. Perfect for getting kids energy out as an alternative to a day at the beach.

Only recommendation would be to bring a baby gate for the top of the stairs if you feel your kids might be up in the night to go to the bathroom, as they will be passing buy an open staircase.
