Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: I recently purchased this property as a future retirement home. It is located one mile from my fruit farm (Good Nature Farms). I was born in Beulah and have owned my farm since 1978. I raised 4 children and my youngest (son) is my partner. We produce tart cherries, sweet cherries, apples, peaches and apricots. Your rental includes 'you pick' all you can eat, when in season, while vacationing:)

Why the Owner Chose Grand Traverse Bay, Traverse City, MI, USA:
I chose this property because of the beautiful deep sand dune beach and proximity to my farm. The sunsets are fabulous and this is a true Northern Michigan cottage (knotty pine interior, large deck, and 200 feet deep beach , beautiful sand dune , ideal for entertaining)

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
100' sugar sand dune beach Use of water toys (plus optional sail boats) Private wooded setting Close Proximity to Elk Lake, Torch Lake, and East Bay. Approximately 25 minutes to Traverse City or Charlevoix. Ten minutes to Elk Rapids. 10 minutes to Kewadin. stunning sunsets !!!!
