About the Property
Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)
Come and enjoy your next family vacation in Northern Michigan. Our cottage is located on Little Traverse Lake in beautiful Leelanau County. The house is directly on the lake, with no road or obstruction between the house and the water. There is a large deck for outdoor eating and grilling and beautiful sunsets year round. The sandy area leads out to a dock over the warm, crystal clear lake. There are also 2 kayaks and plenty of life jackets of every size onsite for your use.
The Lake House has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The first bedroom has a king bed, the second has a queen, the third is a bunkroom with 2 bunks with full beds on the bottom and twins on top and the fourth bedroom has one bunk with full on the bottom and twin on top. Perfect for 2 families to share, or cozy enough for a couple to enjoy on their own.
The entire front of the home is windows directly overlooking the beautiful sunsets over Little Traverse Lake. Inside, there is a large, knotty pine living room with a cathedral ceiling and a massive fieldstone fireplace, a fully-stocked kitchen with a gorgeous lake view, all within steps of the water. For those of you who prefer to do your cooking outdoors, there is a large deck built just outside the sliding glass doors, with a gas grill for the full outdoor experience. There is also a fire pit in front of the home, perfect for a campfire and some s'mores.
If you are looking for activities, rent or bring a bike and bike the many trails in the area that lead from Little Traverse Lake all the way to Sleeping Bear Dunes and beyond.
Relax and leave your worries behind. Come enjoy the splendor of a fantastic Northern Michigan experience without having to pack the kitchen sink. Our cottage comes fully equipped from the kitchen utensils to bed linens.
Traverse Lake is located in Leelanau County between Leland and Glen Arbor. The Lake is within the Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore and close to several of Northwest Michigan's many attractions. It is adjacent to the National Lakeshore property which offers miles of heavily forested trails, as well as beautiful, Lake Michigan shoreline to take walks or hunt for Petoskey stones. There is also a bike trail that travels from Little Traverse Lake all the way to the Sleeping Bear Dunes.
This cottage is built very close to the lakeshore. If you want to get any closer to the water, you have to jump in!
