Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: The MoYo cottage is owned by two families joined by love. Their son and daughter married months after the cottage was purchased, and it has been a place full of fun, laughter and enjoyment for years and years (and still is)! The owners have made multiple improvements to the place, and impeccable care has been taken to design every inch of the space to reflect the local sunny, laid-back good taste of the beautiful surroundings. The two families who own the cottage live downstate, and take great pride in making sure the cottage is comfortable with fine amenities that will make this a vacation one to remember.

Why the Owner Chose Traverse City, MI, USA:
The MoYo cottage is a three-bedroom home with a fireplace that offers comfortable sleeping arrangements for 8 adults with room for children and infants. Pack-and-play and high-chair included, and a well-equipped kitchen with unique character offers bowling-alley maple counter tops, gas range, and a breakfast nook for that perfect cup of coffee. The home backs up to a nature preserve and is across the street from Bower's Harbor in Lake Michigan's Grand Traverse Bay. The marina access site, a park, and wineries are a short walk down the road. Cyclists and runners choose your route: flat or rolling roads, not matter what, you will never forget the breathtaking vistas! This is a bicycler's and triathlete's dream come true. High tech: high-speed wireless, TV ready for your iPad or HDMI device, and a great stereo for your CDs and iPod/MP3 player make this place ready to handle all your business or entertainment needs.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Coastal Living-featured interior designer-owned property across from Lake Michigan in Bowers Harbor offers a spectacular vacation spot. It's nestled in the woods for a cozy feel but boasts of sophisticated opportunities to shop, work out, dine and drink right within the neighborhood. Succumb to a snooze on the porch or sun-drenched four-season room, or curl up with a good book next to the fireplace.
