Overview

About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Be sure to view our video at the end of our photos (it's right past the photo of Sleeping Bear Dunes)!

At the end of a quiet, private road, and nestled among majestic pine, beech, oak, and maple trees, this gorgeous, new cottage is the lakefront retreat you have been looking for!

Downstairs you will find an inviting, tastefully furnished, living room with a beautiful stone-faced, gas log fireplace. An expansive picture window overlooks Bass Lake including a beautiful, sandy beach. The dining area boasts an artfully designed table that can seat up to ten comfortably, as well as a snack bar complete with stools for more casual dining.

The kitchen is fully-appointed with appliances, utensils, and equipment for casual to elegant entertaining. A utility room with stacked washer/dryer and a large pantry are just off the kitchen. Additionally, downstairs you will find the beautiful master bedroom complete with king-size bed, dressing room, and bath with tub/shower. A large picture window overlooks the lake. Wi-Fi throughout the house.

Upstairs, you will first enter the den/TV room.... a perfect hide-away for the kids (or adults seeking solitude). The den is furnished with a comfortable small couch that also pulls out to a twin bed, a double ottoman, a comfy chair, as well as floor pillows for comfy movie-watching. Two large bedrooms and a beautiful bath with tub/shower finish the second floor. Both bedrooms have picturesque views of the lake and the woods. One is furnished with a queen bed as well as a daybed/trundle (both twin beds). The other upstairs bedroom also boasts a queen-size bed and a twin bed. Additionally, there is a twin-size, fold-out mattress that can be used in the bedrooms or the den.

Finally, the cottage has two gorgeous porches... the one across the entire front of the home overlooks the lake, private sunning patio and beach as well as the boat dock and playground. The rear porch overlooks beautiful Michigan woods.

Maple Woods Cottage is a private, family retreat on Bass Lake, a 100 acre all-sports lake. Much of the lake's shoreline is dedicated to a state park, which makes it a sanctuary for wildlife including loons, herons, white-tailed deer, raccoons, beavers, and a variety of game fish such as bass, walleye, pike, perch and bluegill. The lake is a ideal for swimming, boating, fishing, skiing, and tubing. We provide a fishing boat with motor, 4 kayaks, a swim raft and a pedalboat for casual summer fun. In the winter, the Bass Lake area is known for ice skating, ice fishing, snowmobiling, and cross-country skiing.

We are just minutes from the Interlochen Arts Center, Traverse City and Grand Traverse Bay, Crystal Mountain Ski & Golf Resort, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Seashore, Leland, Shanty Town, numerous wineries, concert halls, Leelanau Sands Casino, award-winning golf courses, Little Betsie River and Lake Michigan.

We accept Pay Pal in addition to personal checks.

About Bonnie Mizell

Rick and I live in Central Florida where I am a retired science educator and he is Senior Music Producer for Disney Entertainment.

Bonnie Mizell purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Bonnie Mizell chose Northwest

We built our home in Interlochen, Michigan, to be close to the Interlochen Center for the Arts where Rick spent 7 summers on staff. We have come to love not only Interlochen, but all that Northwestern Michigan has to offer, especially on our beautiful lake!

What makes this cottage unique

Two of my favorites are enjoying coffee on the front porch while listening to the loons AND floating on a raft on our beautiful lake! Our grandchildren love to tube, and the sightseeing, shopping, golfing, and restaurants in the area are amazing! We catch fish right off of the dock and make s'mores under the stars! We accept Pay Pal in addition to personal checks.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We ended up with three 12 yr old soccer players at the cottage over the weekend (with 5 parents). Boys did not perform well at the tournament, ending with a 1-1-1 record. But what a great time they had at the cottage! They were swimming in the lake when it was just 50 degrees outside. They had such fun in the kayaks and paddle boat! We had bonfires both nights. It was a totally different tournament experience than the normal hotel stay. Thanks for sharing your vacation home with us. We made some great memories with our soccer family!

Our group enjoyed every minute at the Maple Woods Cottage! We went fishing, kayaking, and sat out on the deck everyday. I would highly recommend this rental for anyone looking to enjoy a peaceful lakefront vacation.

Great vacation spot for all ages!

  • 5 of 5

Maple Woods cottage is a Dream! Rick & Bonnie, along with Carol, answered our questions quickly and were so helpful. The cottage has everything you might need. The lake was perfect for fishing and our children loved the floating dock. Kayaking was a hit with them as well. Thanks so much Rick & Bonnie! Looking forward to next year!

Perfect Family Lake House

  • 5 of 5

We love Maple Woods Cottage! My family of 5 has come for a summer week, off and on, for quite a few years. The cottage and lake are perfect! The cottage is cozy and well-equipped and comfortably sleeps all of us, with room to spare! The deck is perfect for morning coffee, reading and evening cocktails. But the beach, lake, boats, swimming and fishing are what it is all about! Sandy bottom, clear lake and loaded with fish! There are actually 6 boats that families can use while they are there…including a great fishing boat with a power motor! And, the area has lots of fun things to do, if you want to explore. It’s hard to get the kids away from the lake on sunny days, however. We can’t wait to come back!

a wonderful visit

  • 5 of 5

I was at this wonderful cottage on Bass Lake for a week, enjoying all the amenities of this cottage, which is beautifully furnished with everything one could possibly need. We were there to enjoy the cooler fall weather and see the foliage, which did not disappoint! Close to beautiful drives, including the dunes, lighthouses, wineries, shopping and and great restaurants, I highly recommend this stay for others. Although this was a "ladies only" week, I could easily see how families with children would love it too ~ lots of outdoors activities right on the property, including kayaks, boating, swimming in the lake, and more. I would love to come back!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Picture a beautiful cottage situated on a shimmering lake in the woods of northern Michigan. Welcome to Maple Woods Cottage! I loved this place! This cottage is perfect for leaf peepers, readers who like to get cozy by the fireplace, water sports enthusiasts, explorers, gourmet diners who can enjoy the great area restaurants, or anyone who just wants a comfortable place to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet.
