Great location. True 'Up North' Cottage setting on beautiful Bass Lake, yet only a ten minute drive to downtown, shopping, wineries, casinos, and the Grand Traverse Bay.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: I love dealing with the people that are excited about their vacations like our family is. We love going to Northern Michigan and enjoying the beautiful areas and attractions.

Why the Owner Chose Traverse City, MI, USA:
This is a fantastic location. Up North feeling, but Traverse City is only 6 miles away. Also, great restaurants, golf, malls, etc. within 3 miles. Interlochen Center for the Arts very close as well with great concerts.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The cottage is unique in that it is very spacious and private on the inside and only 10' from the beautiful water through the screened in porch. This unique benefit has been grandfathered in and could not be re-built this way. It is a great relaxing place to be - on the water without the annoying mosquitoes and sipping your coffee or a cocktail.
