Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Traverse City, MI, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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.
