About the Property
Cute Cottage On Fife Lake 30 Miles South Of Traverse City
The Village of Fife Lake is the hidden gem of Grand Traverse County. Just 30 miles south of Traverse City it provides a soft landing for those seeking to get away from all of the hub bub of the “big city”. This perfect location provides a center for those that want to further explore north western Michigan as well as a jumping off point for multiple recreational activities in our four seasons.
Just steps from the front door of this cute cottage is Fife Lake, over 625 acres of all sports fun! Steps down from the dock and sea wall lead you to a hard pack sand bottom for as long as you can touch without going under! Bring your own boat to ski, tube or fish for bass, pike, sunfish and walleye. If you would rather relax you can catch some rays lounging on the dock while watching our nesting eagle pair soar above, or sit in the shade on the lawn while a reading a book. Make sure to bring some marshmallows to roast over the fire when the sun goes down. A Michigan DNR boat launch is located directly across the lake and there is room on the property to store your boat trailer.
This cute cottage will provide you with a place to rest your head after a long day of adventure. The first bedroom has a queen size Sleep Number bed that lets you choose your own firmness while the second bedroom boasts two bunk beds furnished with four brand new twin sized Michigan made mattresses. All bed linens are provided.
The 3/4 bathroom has been recently remodeled. Bath towels are provided but please bring your own beach towels. There is a washer and dryer on site for limited use.
There is a fabulous sunroom that spans the entire width of this cottage with a large sectional lounger that invites you to naps. The pub style table seats eight and is perfect for a lakeside family dinner or a rousing game of Apples to Apples. For those that cannot sit still many foosball tournaments have taken place in this room.
Dinner can be grilled out back on the gas grill or prepared in the fully equipped kitchen. There is a full size fridge, microwave, gas stove and oven, coffee pot and filters, and toaster and toaster oven. Plates and silverware along with a variety of kitchen utensils and cooking dishes are also provided. The dining room table comfortably seats six.
If Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate you can always run up to the Village of Fife Lake (3 miles away) to rent a DVD or blu ray movie to play on the 40” TV that is mounted above the fireplace/heater. Or, if you have a Netflix membership (or similar) you can download your choice of shows to watch from the in house wifi. But really-who wants to watch TV when you have a view of the lake?

- When I was young my mom used to grab all of the pillows in the cottage and load them up on one bed to create a nest. She would then open up a window so there was a slight breeze blowing on you. She would make a really big deal and called this an Up North Waft. These bedrooms can provide amazing Wafts. (In hind sight I am pretty sure she was just trying to help us kids get some down time. Brilliant!)...moreless
