Located in Traverse City Michigan, this lovely 6 yr. old Lodge sits on a private 1 acre lot with 100 ft. of sandy beach frontage on beautiful High Lake, a peaceful 50 acre semi private lake with very low water traffic but much natural beauty including the wild life and water fowl. Even the Bald Eagles nest here. Located only 4 miles from the Cherry Capital Airport, 8 miles from down town Traverse City and just 7-9 miles from the beautiful East & West Grand Traverse Bays yet in the winter you can snowmobile, cross country ski, snowshoe or ice fish right from the Lodge, only ¼ mile to groomed trails,(maps are available), and in the summer the lake is wonderful for swimming and any water sport.

This 2 bdrm 2.5 bath 3,500 sq.ft. rustic beach Lodge can easily accommodate 2-3 families sleeping up to 16, 8 in the upper level and 8 in the lower walk out level. 2 queen beds, 1 queen log futon, one new fold out sofa and 4 TV upstairs and 2 double(full) size futons, a bunk bed (twin over double) and one twin size roll away bed in the lower walk out level as well as a game room with a pool table, bumper pool table, Foosball, large flat screen TV and large card table as well as other tables and chairs. The kitchen is fully equipped and a 2nd refrigerator is also available, both have ice makers, along with a beverage cooler located in the lower level.

The upper deck, 50 ’x 16’, has built in benches and other deck furniture for your comfort as well as a gas grill (gas furnished). Great for beach activities in the summer with 2 docks, a raft, paddle boat, a metal row boat and fire pit for your use. Kayaks and a paddle board are available at an extra charge. Also there is a picnic table, charcoal grills, and a fire pit on the beach. Firewood is available at an extra charge and must be ordered a few days in advance of your arrival.
