Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom On Lake George

Here is a quiet cottage that sleeps four nestled in the woods on tranquil, beautiful Lake George, a small lake situated between Arbutus Lake and Spider Lake. It is only 12 miles SE from downtown Traverse City, 9 miles from the airport. Access to the cottage is off a paved road. If you are looking for a place to rest and relax, this is it.

While Lake George is a non-wake, trolling motor only lake with no public access, both Spider and Arbutus Lakes offer public boat launches for anyone with a boat and trailer. Also, it is just 8 miles to a boat launch on East Bay part of beautiful Grand Traverse Bay. For those who like hiking, several trails are nearby as well as being located near the Vasa Trail used in both winter and summer for biking and skiing. And kayaking, canoeing and tubing are possible on the Boardman River only 3 miles away. If you visit in the winter, snow mobile trails are within two miles as well as wonderful cross country or snowshoeing trails.

The cottage has two bedrooms and one bathroom. There is a queen size bed in one room and a double bed in the second bedroom. Enjoy a meal on the deck overlooking the lake. At night use the fire pit for roasting marshmallows or cooking hot dogs. The cottage is furnished with linens, blankets, dishes, coffee pot, toaster and cookware. There is a stove, refrigerator and it is air conditioned. Bring your camera as you may enjoy deer, raccoon's, squirrels and birds.

Located with permanent residences nearby, there are quiet hours after 10:00 pm. There is a hill down to the cottage and steps down to the lake where there is a dock. No fireworks are allowed.

Why Susan Burke chose Traverse City

This was our family cottage for years. It was remodeled completely in 2006 by my father. And more remodeling was done in 2014 after I purchased the cottage.

What makes this cottage unique

I have always loved the setting of Lake George. It is a quiet lake, no motor boats or jet skis. The fishing has been good for bass and blue gill with some perch. This is the type of lake to kick back and relax.

Perfect for a quiet getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I visited Traverse City from Chicago to do some snowmobiling and wanted a place to relax from the busy day to day of the city. This place was perfect as it's in a very quiet, secluded area, yet still very close to downtown Traverse City. This cute cottage was very clean and comfortable to spend our weekend getaway in. I would recommend this place to anyone -- it was simply perfect!
