About the Property

Waterfront, beach, fireplace, 3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 8

CONTACT ME WITH ANY QUESTIONS BEFORE BOOKING! July and August rentals are Sunday-to-Sunday.

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 been completely painted and refreshed with 1,300'+ square feet of living space. The kitchen has quality white appliances including refrigerator with icemaker, stove/oven, dishwasher, microwave and disposal. Unique concrete countertops 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 Netflix and streaming movies. Cable TV is available (during the summer and fall only). Tivo systems are provided for the flat panel TVs and there are blu-ray players as well. There’s board games and video games for rainy days or just fun game time.

There are two kayaks and bikes that can be used to enjoy the bay.

To keep you cool there are three ceiling fans and a 1-ton wall air conditioner (no central air conditioning).

There is a small grocery store with a great deli (and delicious summer BBQ) only 5 minutes away.
