About the Property

5 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 11 comfortably

Secluded sandy beach located in a quiet area about a half mile from the entrance to the Cheboygan River. 50ft trees surround this fully equipped home with oak floors and soft light carpeting. We are approximately 500 yards from the Little Traverse Conservancy Nature Preserve. Don't be surprised to see deer, fox and a myriad variety of water fowl. Watch the 1000ft international freighters sail by from the many rooms, large deck, or fire pit on the beach. This home was built and furnished for comfort and serenity.
It is perfect for taking out the kayaks to cruise the Cheboygan River to the left or head for the State Park on the right. There are several restaurants on the river or within walking distance that cater to boaters.
The bed set up is 3 queen beds in 3 separate rooms, one bedroom with two twins, one bedroom with one twin, and a den with a fold out double.
Two bikes, one with a large basket for bringing home your products from shopping the strip mall that is about a mile away.

Peace - Owner Comment: : My brother calls our property, a little 'peace' of paradise. The silence all around is broken by the songs of birds, hearing swans flying by, cricket calls in the evenings, and the sound of waves lapping the beach. Sunsets over the lake are spectacular and many enjoy it around the large fire pit on the beach. Thank you for considering our home for your vacation. We pray for each of our renters to have a re-creating, wonderful, and joy filled time while staying on our property. Sincerely, Valerie Porter
