Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: We searched for the perfect summer home in northern Michigan for over 10 years; Lake Michigan and Little Traverse Bay are treasures. We discovered Bay View several years ago and each of us fell in love with the community for a wide variety of reasons. The multigenerational, family-friendly community is a step back in time, were children can roam safely on their bikes, and the beautiful music of practicing musicians can be heard throughout the campus. This cottage is a rare find - true Victorian splendor with all the updates and amenities. It is our pleasure to share it with you.
Why the Owner Chose Petoskey, MI, USA:
We love the cool evenings and sunny afternoons in northern Michigan. It has every outdoor sport and beautiful vistas. Within 30 minutes we can be in Macinaw City ready to hop a boat to that beautiful Island, touring Fort Michimilimacinaw or traversing the Macinaw Bridge - the 5-mile suspension bridge connecting the Michigan penninsulas. Or we can head to several other quaint towns by boat, bicycle or on foot. The views in every direction are beautiful, but the sunsets over Lake Michigan sing to us. We've known for decades that this is where we want to retire. But we couldn't wait until retirement to enjoy this beautiful part of the country and its people.
