About the Property

4 BR, 3 bath, outdoor shower, hot tub, sandy beach, laundry, wet bar, dock, a/c

Lakemore Retreat is comprised of three rental properties: 'Lakemore Lodge', 'Lakemore Cottage' and 'Lakemore Cabin'. Pictured here, the house with red exterior, is Lakemore Lodge. Lakemore Cottage is the green 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 sleeps 9-10 and 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 two or all three for the same time period, altogether sleeping up to 34 people comfortably. Make reservations for Lakemore Lodge here and look for Lakemore Cottage (VRBO Listing #653686) and Lakemore Cabin (VRBO Listing #783700) on their respective VRBO sites.


The lodge, a mirror image of the cottage’s floor plan with all the same amenities, takes on a dramatically different feel with rich Walnut architectural detail and metal accents. This “industrial chic” style home will remind you of a mountainside lodge, yet the tranquil views of Arbutus Lake sunsets will make you glad you are vacationing in Northern Michigan. Come enjoy the thoughtfully designed luxury and superior craftsmanship of Lakemore Retreat’s Lodge.

Embrace 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 just 15 minutes away, a local downhill ski hill. Crystal Mountain Ski Resort is 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.

Lakemore Retreat's Lodge is one of two available lakefront properties (Lakemore Cottage is next door). Both properties can be rented individually or together, doubling your occupancy to 24. Both homes are new construction and were built directly on the shores of Arbutus Lake, with easy access to the water (no steps or cliffs) and optimal views of the lake. 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 paddleboarding, 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, and to Boardman Valley Trail system, 81 miles of snowmobile trails.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We are Dean and Tricia Adams, both Northern Michigan natives. Dean is owner of Bay Area Contracting, a highly regarded custom home builder/ general contractor in the Traverse City area. Tricia is a Neonatal ICU nurse. We both love to travel, which means we know what people want in a vacation property. Also, we live on the lake, which means we built these homes with all the ammenities and conveniences desired by anyone living or vacationing on a lake.

Why the Owner Chose Forest Lakes, East Bay Township, MI, USA:
Arbutus Lake is a special place, we know this because we live here. It's an all sports lake with a public boat launch. Arbutus is great for high speed boating, yet it still offers the quiet serenity of a small lake. Even the busiest days on Arbutus don't compare to the craziness of a regular summer day on the more populated inland lakes of the Traverse City area.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This property (containing two lots) was appealing for us to invest in because of our ability to build two homes side by side and because of they offer direct lake access. Many lots on Arbutus Lake are up high and require stairs and long winding pathways to reach the lake. Lakemore Retreat is at lake level and the walk to the sandy beach is as easy as it gets.
