Stunning sunsets, sandy beach, surrounded by trees! Enjoy the natural beauty of Lake Michigan. You can walk the beach forever - something you can't do on inland lakes.
The cottage is located on Grand Traverse Bay just 20 minutes south of Charlevoix and a few miles north of Torch Lake (Eastport). It provides a dramatic view from a bluff about 20' above the water. The house views the Leelanau Peninsula across the bay with Lake Michigan to the north and Grand Traverse Bay to the south. A large partially covered deck overlooks the lake. You can enjoy the view and the sunset from the beach, the bluff or even the master bedroom balcony (or from the kayaks out on the bay).
Enjoy a fire during the cool nights in the fireplace or in the fire pit on the overlooking bluff. Just down the “switchback” pathway is your own private beach with plenty of sand to enjoy. The beach has sand and smooth rocks. The bay is shallow which makes it great for young children.
The cottage has 1,300'+ square feet of living space. The kitchen has quality stainless steel appliances including refrigerator with filtered water dispenser, stove/oven, dishwasher, microwave and disposal. The unique concrete countertop with native stones and a deep stainless steel sink give the kitchen a modern look with the feeling of “camp”. The kitchen gives you a lake view even when you are cooking.
The cottage has three private bedrooms plus a large sleeper sofa. There are two bathrooms, one with tub and one with shower. The master bedroom upstairs has a large balcony that overlooks the lake. The second upstairs bedroom has a queen bed and a convertible lounger. It also has TV, games and bean bag chairs to serve as the “game” room. A modern bathroom with a bathtub is located between the upstairs bedrooms. The master bedroom has a king bed and the other bedrooms have queen beds. The sleeper sofa is a “short” queen. The main floor bedroom is smaller and private for sleeping. The main floor bath has a shower and washer/dryer.
High speed internet is provided along with ultra HD Netflix and streaming movies. Cable TV is available (during the summer and fall only). Tivo systems are provided with the HD and ultra HD TVs and there are blu-ray players as well. There’s board games and video games for rainy days or just fun game time.
To keep you cool there are three ceiling fans and a 1-ton air conditioner in the living/dining room (no central air conditioning).
There are two kayaks, a stand up paddleboard and bikes that can be used to enjoy the bay.
There is a small grocery store with a great deli (and delicious summer BBQ) only 5 minutes away.

Loved our stay for New Years! Great house for my husband and myself. Great base for cross country skiing and relaxing. Loved our home away!
Breath Taking View and a Beautiful Cabin!!
We had a great time at the Timeberlane Cabin. It had everything we could possibly need, it was extremely clean, beautifully decorated, in addition, it was very cozy and peaceful. We walked the beach, Kayaked, hiked through the neighbor hood, enjoyed a fire in the fireplace and a good book.
Shelley stopped by to make sure we had everything we needed. She is so kind and sweet. We enjoyed meeting her.
We have stayed in many vacation homes and for us this one ranks at the top of our list. We will be returning.
We were more than pleased with our accommodations and surroundings! House was thoroughly furnished and Shelly was very hospitable. I would highly recommend this rental.
Beautiful location. Peaceful
We really enjoyed our stay. Great views. Quiet. We had a great time sharing memories of our parents, hunting for petoskeys and sitting around the fire. Shelly was great. Thanks for everything!
A wonderful place to stay
We (my wife, our 9 year old twins, our 4 year old and me) had a great time at this property. The accommodations were roomy and comfortable with plenty of things -- the kayaks, board games, movies, etc. -- to keep all interested.
The location was great. It was easy to get to Charlevoix or Traverse City, although looking for Petoskey Stones on the property's and surrounding beaches kept us at the house most of the time. The beach at the Antrim Preserve (2.5 miles north on Old Dixie Highway) was another bonus.
The service from Shelley was very good and the house itself was clean and welcoming. We appreciated the s'mores ingredients waiting in the kitchen for us and enjoyed making them at the fire pit on our second night at the house.
All in all, a great trip. I'd recommend it for others, with or without children, and I know my family would gladly return.
Amazing house on the water!
Our family had a great time this weekend at Bayfront Beach Sunset Cottage! The house was very roomy and had everything that we needed and more! The cottage is centrally located for trips to Petoskey, Charlevoix and Traverse City.
Bob was very quick with supplying all the information and Shelley went over and above with any questions we had!
Enjoy Antrim Creek Nature Area just a few miles north, walk the beach for miles, Barnes Park and Torch Bay Preserve and Day Park are a few miles south. Castle Farms is less than 30 minutes away so the cottage is a great place to stay with family while you attend a wedding.
