About the Property
Remodeled cottage on small lake. Near TC~yet feels so far away. Great sunsets
Remodeled, completely winterized 2-bedroom cottage with an open-air design. All the amenities are here for a relaxing stay. A fully equipped kitchen (no dishwasher). One bathroom with endless hot water. Washer/dryer on site. Lots of linens and towels provided.
Fast Internet. Cable TV, Blueray available.
7 miles to downtown Traverse City. Boone's Long Lake Inn is less than a mile away ~ a local favorite for dining and music. The original Moomer's Ice Cream Shoppe is 3 miles from the cottage (on the way to Sleeping Bear)
The cottage sits on a quiet, dog-friendly lane. There is a fenced-in area for your pet.
Beautiful sunsets most every night. The deck overlooking the lake has a dining table and plenty of seating. There is a two-burner gas grill on the deck.
The fire pit area down at the beach is great for S'mores or whatever.
Two kayaks are available; the green one is a fishing kayak and a red 'Loon' kayak. Two fishing poles are provided. The dock and raft area can also be a great place to fish. You are sure to catch a Bass or a Blue Gill. The lake is sandy bottomed, very clear; but not great for swimming. The Blue Heron has been showing up most mornings.
Detailed maps of nearby bike, walking trails, swimming lakes and beaches; along with winery/brewery brochures, and things to do are available at the cottage.
Two bikes are available for your use; as is the two-car garage.
Smoking outside, please. Thanks!

Equal distance to Interlochen Center for The Arts and downtown Traverse City, this is a remodeled, winterized cottage with a deck that overlooks a small lake. Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore is 30 miles northwest and Crystal Mountain Resort is 25 miles southeast.
The living/dining/kitchen area offers a spacious feeling. The dining room table can accommodate six. The kitchen is fully equipped with a food processor, blenders, and lots of pots and pans. All the amenities are here except a dishwasher.
Two bedrooms ~ the lakeside bedroom has a queen and the smaller bedroom has a full-size extra long bed. The living room couch folds out to a queen bed. We also have an air bed. One bathroom with endless hot water. Washer/dryer on site. Linens and lots of towels provided. An assortment of teas, plus coffee pot, coffee, condiments and filters.
CABLE TV with loads of channels (beginning in May), Apple TV available, along with a Blue Ray DVD. The Internet is fast! The username and password will be on the dining room table.
Great Blue Gill and Bass fishing ~ Bring your poles! You can launch the two kayaks (one is a fishing kayak) from the raft and dock.
Sit on the sofa and watch the sunset every evening ~ maybe the Loon will stop by or a Blue Heron.
A four-burner gas grill sits on the deck with outdoor seating. There's also a charcoal grill available with fuel. A natural setting, on a quiet, dog-friendly lane.
Maps, brochures, and things to do are available at the cottage.
Pets are very welcome ~ they're part of the family, right? Smoking outside, please. Oh, and no candles inside. Thanks!
Guests will have access to the two-car garage.
I prefer to meet you when you arrive to do a walk-through and answer any questions you may have. I appreciate a phone call when you leave the cottage at the end of your stay. And, if you're so inclined, you can strip the beds and put the linens by the washer.
I love this quiet neighborhood, the sunsets over the lake, the solitude; and yet, it is so close to all the things I love. The proximity to Traverse City, Interlochen, Leelanau and Benzie Counties make it a perfect spot to relax after a day of exploring.
Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: As a retired teacher/social worker, I now am able to enjoy the beauty of our region full-time. I do a lot of volunteering at Interlochen Center for the Arts, am a Foster Grandparent and love to be outdoors. My motto? The Truth Will Set You Free!
Why the Owner Chose Traverse City, MI, USA:
Because of the sunsets! I love the quiet location ~ so close to Traverse City and Interlochen Center for the Arts; yet there is a real country-feel to this area.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Location! Again, those wonderful sunsets. The quiet..... the Up North feel.....This is a year-round home so all the amenities are here. Great for relaxing, dog walking, biking, kayaking, fishing (Dyer Lake is teeming with Bass and Blue Gill).
