Property description

SAVE 4-9% by clicking the "send a message" icon found on the right side of screen to deal directly with me, the owner of almost 30 years. If you click "Request to Book", you will be charged by listing site (4-9%). Deal directly with me, the owner instead by clicking on "send a message". Our reservation process is a traditional up-north rental process. I respond within the hour. When someone wants more information or wants to make a reservation, I contact them so I can personally answer questions, and establish a connection with my future guests at the same time, saving you money as you will not be charged this new fee that I have no control over. This large 4 bedroom, 2 bath home was designed for your comfort while you are on vacation. It offers a quiet location, yet it is close to everything.
-10 minutes from Traverse City
-10 minutes from great sandy swimming beaches
-15 minutes to the wineries of Old Mission Peninsula and Leelanau Peninsula
-20 minutes from Sleep Bear Dunes National Lake Shore, Good Morning America's" Most Beautiful Place in America"
-5 minutes from Interlochen Center for the Arts with all of their world famous performers.

In addition to the 4 bedroom, 2 baths, it has a full kitchen, washer/dryer, central air conditioning, WiFi, cable TV and 2 gas fireplaces. On the walk-out level there is a large den with cable TV, the laundry room with washer and dryer, one of the bathrooms and a large bedroom with cable TV, the other 3 bedrooms, the second bathroom, full kitchen, and living room with cable TV are located on the main floor.
The Pines has a deck that looks out on the large yard with a "peek a boo" view of Silver Lake. There is a picnic table, charcoal grill and campfire pit with wood provided. While close to Silver Lake, there is no access to the lake from the home. The Silver Lake public boat launch is only 4 miles down the road. There is plenty of space at the Pines for your boat trailer and boat. **
We strive to provide a clean and comfortable home for you during your visit to the Traverse City area. Our own home is located next door so we are available for sight-seeing advice, restaurant recommendations as well as just being here for our guests. We know that vacations are a time to relax, have fun and be as hassle free as possible.
There is so much to do in the Traverse City area. Some examples are: winery tours and tasting rooms, Children’s Museum, Moomers Homemade Ice Cream (voted #1 in U.S.), Pirate’s Cove Adventure Park, the State Theatre (home of the Traverse City Film Festival), The village at Grand Traverse Commons, Dennos Museum, Interlochen Arts and Performance Academy, Music House Museum, Sleeping Bear National Lake Shore Park, Wuerfel Park (home to the minor league baseball team-Beach Bums) as well as all the biking, hiking, canoeing, and kayaking available in our area.
**Please note in the reviews last year our guests comment on the beach, but as of this year, it is no longer available to use by our guests in the Pines.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: My husband and I have been married since 1979. We moved to Traverse City in 1980 from the city of Detroit. We have raised our 5 children in this beautiful area. We take great pride in providing a clean/comfortable home for our guests. We are easily available to our guests as our year round home is located next door.

Why the Owner Chose Traverse City, MI, USA:
The Pines is located next to our year round home. We did much updating to make it a comfortable and spacious home away from home for our guests.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Parents with small children love the laundry room with a washer and dryer. You have your own private yard for yard games, campfires and just relaxation. The home's deck looks over the yard and yes, you can get a peek at the lake. While here is no access to the lake with this home, the boat launch is just down the road and there are multiple public access beaches in the area. For example, Traverse City just 10 minutes away the public beach is located one block north of downtown, on Lake Michigan's Grand Traverse Bay. There are many amenities at this beach (bathrooms, volleyball, kayak and bike rentals, food concessions). There are many other beaches in the area that we can direct you too.
