About the property

Private, Secluded, Lakefront Cottage In The Woods Yet Close To It All !

Cozy, comfortable 2 bed room cabin in a beautiful setting near Traverse City, overlooking rennie lake. Two bedrooms feature one double bed and two twin beds in the back bedroom. There is also a queen sleeper sofa on the front porch that overlooks the lake with a wonderful view of the lake. There is a fire pit for an outside fire with plenty of fire wood, a gas grill, picnic table, outside chairs and 2 kayaks are also provided for your use. All cooking utensils, dishes, and comforters and blankets are provided. Linens are available at an additional charge. There is a tv, dvd , vcr and a portable stereo as well as playing cards, a few board games etc. Most view this wonderful place as a chance to get away from it all, with that in mind, there is no cable tv, however, we have recently added Hi-speed internet which is very useful for finding stuff and seems to be the only way to get your kids to come with you. Other then that it is totally retro, with 7 or 8 channels off the air, imagine that ? and I find that I enjoy Netflix from time to time which can be streamed from your Roku, (or similar device) as long as it has an analog option for watching a movie or two late at night or on rainy days. Depending on when you visit you may hear the loons on the semi private 250 acre lake right outside your door.

Rennie Lake

  • 4 of 5

Quaint cabin nestled in the woods. Perfect for fall getaways and couples looking for peace and tranquility. The owner is very helpful and easy to work with. The lake is quiet and the neighbors are generous and respectful of your privacy. Traverse City is a beautiful, quick drive from the cabin with tons of activities and sights. Sleeping Bear Dunes is only 50 minutes away and worth a day trip. Due to the lack of a beach or real swimming area, the cabin is not the best place for families with kids unless used as a home base after day trips to other swimming beaches or sightseeing.

Great place on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I had a great time at this cabin and I would definetly recomend it! It was exactly how I pictured a week on the lake. We had campfires almost every night, our dogs could swim every morning, the neighbors were friendly, and we felt like we had a good amount of privacy with the wooded areas surrounding the cabin. The owner of the cabin was also very responsive and a pleasure to work with.
