About Dawn and Jeff Ameel
My husband Jeff and I both grew up in Traverse City. We bought this property 15 years ago as a summer home for our family when our children were growing up. We originally bought the 3 bedroom house adjacent to this property, and then bought the cottage to use as a guest house.
Dawn and Jeff Ameel purchased this Cottage in 2000
Why Dawn and Jeff Ameel chose Traverse City
Having grown up in Traverse City it was important to us to own a home back in T.C. We were living in Asia at the time this property was purchased. We wanted a place to bring our children for the summer. Having lived in large metropolitan areas such as Tokyo and Hong Kong we were looking for a place that was quiet and surrounded by nature.
What makes this Cottage unique
We chose this property mainly for the peace and quiet. It is at the end of a two track road with no traffic. We can sit on our front deck and see deer, rabbits and birds. We love the sound of the rippling water of the river. We have learned to enjoy kayaking, tubing and fishing on this beautiful clean river.

Great place to stay. It was set up perfectly. There were tons of deer and the fall colors were amazing. Looking forward to staying again! Thank you
Loved this place! Not far from Traverse City.
This cottage is very secluded. You have to take windy, one-lane roads and a bridge to get there. It's perfect for people who truly want to be away from it all. The Boardman River runs right past the backyard. There is a fire pit, big deck and patio furniture, and a nice grill. Inside is so clean and nicely decorated. Exactly how it is pictured. Extremely comfortable bed, and lots of windows. You feel like you're right out there in nature even when you're inside. Also has WIFI. Considering it's in the boonies, it doesn't take more than 15 - 20 minutes to get to downtown Traverse City. Owners and property manager were very helpful and responsive to our questions.
Thank you Karen!! We hope you can come back again!
Very comfortable and quiet
We loved this location and the house was just what we were looking for. Hoping to rent it again some time. Good location to everything, too.
Clean and quiet cabin in a lovely setting.
Place was clean, off the beaten path, will go back.
Great Place To Stay!
My husband and I enjoyed staying at the cottage. Even though there are neighbors it is very private due to the landscaping. It was great to be on the river. We enjoyed sitting on the deck or at the fire pit. It was convenient to Traverse City. And not that far from the wineries and Sleeping Bear Dunes National Seashore. The cabin hosts were very responsive to any questions.
