Lakemore Retreat is comprised of three rental properties: 'Lakemore Lodge', 'Lakemore Cottage' and 'Lakemore Cabin'. Pictured here, the green exterior, is Lakemore Cottage. Lakemore Lodge is the red house, Lakemore Cabin is wood sided. The Cottage and Lodge are luxury homes built in 2015 that each sleep 12, up to 14 with available cots. They are side by side and offer exactly the same amenities and floor plan, just with very different interior design. Lakemore Cabin is our newly acquired home adjacent to the Cottage. Completely gutted and renovated in 2016, the Cabin features updated HVAC, A/C, new drywall, a remodeled kitchen, screened porch, game room and detached guest house with full bath. The properties are rented individually, but many families rent all three for the same time period, altogether sleeping up to 34 people comfortably. Make reservations for Lakemore Cottage here and look for Lakemore Lodge (VRBO Listing #655085) and Lakemore Cabin (VRBO Listing #783700) on their respective VRBO sites.
The cottage is just that, timeless and classic. Steps from the beach, this clean and bright lakeside home offers majestic views of the lake during any season. This efficient open floor plan includes vaulted ceilings with post and beam details, a warm and cozy stone fireplace and an airy screened porch dining area adjacent to a vintage style kitchen. In the cooler months, the screen porch has heated tile floor, making it enjoyable all year round. The Cottage will give you a sense of nostalgia, rekindling memories of vacations from your childhood.
Come enjoy the many benefits of this all sports inland lake where the 395 acres are swimmable from May until October, the fishing is plentiful and the conditions are perfect for many water sports including kayaking, stand up paddle-boarding, water skiing and tubing, all while being minutes away from Traverse City’s restaurants, shops, wineries, golf and more.
Lakemore Retreat is directly adjacent to The Brown Bridge Quiet Area which offers miles of hiking trails. Like to snowmobile? Leave right from the property and access Boardman Valley Trail System's 81 miles of trails! Boardman River is also within 3 miles, a great place to do river tubing, kayaking, canoeing and fishing. We are only 7 mi. from Vasa Single Track, a great Mountain Bike trail system. In addition, the Vasa is home to 25 km of groomed cross country trails. Mount Holiday is only 15 minutes away, a local downhill ski hill. Crystal Mountain Ski Resort is only 30 miles away.
This setting is perfect for relaxing lakefront vacationing away from the hussle of town, but be sure to leave time for a short 15 minute drive to the city. Traverse City is well known for its lakefront, with countless shops and restaurants. The greater Traverse City Area is nationally recognized for Old Mission Peninsula and the Leelanau Peninsula's many wineries, as well as the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.
