Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 8

NEW FOR 2016! (Updated photos to come later)

- New Weber Spirit Grill

- New Retro Kitchen table and chairs

- Deck Dock on water (replaces wooden dock in photos) with wide area with chairs for sitting on over the water. (This is shared with one neighbor - however they do not rent and are only up occasionally.)

This is our family cottage that we completely renovated in 2008. We have decided to rent it during the times that we are not able to enjoy it. If you are looking for a place close to Traverse City that is on a quiet lake - this is your place! This is a part of a small resort that also has a few other cottages for rent.

This cozy cottage has 3 bedrooms and one bathroom. There is bedding for 11 people, however it is probably most comfortable for a family of 6. A nice open floor plan with a kitchen, dining area and living room. There is a very large deck that has three seating areas for dining as well as adirondack chairs for relaxing. There is also a fire pit area with a swing and chairs. We also have 4 single kayaks and a 2 person paddle boat that is yours to use free of charge. For those with kids, we also have a kid cabin that they will enjoy. (Adults may also enjoy the top deck of that as well for a beautiful view of the lake while drinking your morning coffee.) Please note that there is no internet or air conditioning. We do have satellite TV new as of 2015.

There are so many fun things to do in the Traverse City area.

Very near the cottage are several choices:

- Boones Long Lake Inn

- Moomers Ice Cream

- Interlochen

Traverse City is just a short driver away and offers downtown shopping, several restaurants and waterfront.

There are also many cute towns along the peninsula as well as wineries and casinos. You will not be disappointed in this area!

About Lisa King

Kevin has been spending his summers on Bass Lake at his best friend's family cottage since he was young. As a family we have vacationed in the Traverse City many times and have fell in love with the area.

Lisa King purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Lisa King chose Traverse City

We had an opportunity to buy this small resort with a few other partners and we each renovated the cabins that we chose. It has been enjoyable to watch the place transform into our own little paradise. We love how close it is to Traverse City, yet so quiet and peaceful.

What makes this cottage unique

Our cottage is only 2-1/2 hours from our home, so it makes it easy to make a quick weekend getaway trip. We love all the unique things that Traverse City has to offer.

Beautiful Lake front cabin

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this cute cabin right on the lake. We would love to go back next summer when we can take full advantage of all the things to do on the lake including swimming! The bedrooms are perfect for a families, friends, or both! The owners are very nice and made the experience wonderful. It is close to downtown Traverse so we went into town multiple times, we definitely enjoyed our stay.

Very clean cabin/house with amazing property owners.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin and deck were beautiful. Property owners went way out of their way to personally deliver us keys to the shed with extra fun inside that was accidentally locked. There were 6 kayaks and a paddle boat. The fun was endless.

Would definitely recommend to anyone!
