About the property

Spacious 3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom on Lake Michigan's East Grand Traverse Bay

Peaceful Valley Beach House is a private retreat set back from the road on a 1+ acre lot in Peaceful Valley Ranch, on Lake Michigan's East Grand Traverse Bay. Here you'll find beauty and serenity, and feel a million miles away, even though supermarkets, restaurants, golf courses, spas, retail shops, and casinos are within a 5 minute drive. Centrally located, PVB House is a 15 minute drive from downtown Traverse City, Cherry Capital Airport , Old Mission Peninsula, Wineries, and Elk Rapids. There are miles of beaches to walk, Petoskey stones to find, and the Big Lake to swim or boat in. Or spend the days sitting back in your beach chair with a good book, and relax on the PRIVATE 120' WHITE SAND BEACH while awaiting a SPECTACULAR SUNSET OVER OLD MISSION PENINSULA, and roasting s'mores over a fire pit on the beach. Here you'll find swimming, sunbathing, kayaking, fishing, and sightseeing, and the sunsets at the end of the day and their "afterglow" sublime!

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a private, beautiful home and property. We stayed with our two young children and enjoyed swimming and campfires on the beach in a very private setting. Just 20 minutes away from downtown Traverse City makes the location ideal if you want to feel secluded, but also have quick access to restaurants, breweries and wineries. Would happily stay here again!

Great location and beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and well-maintained. The home was well appointed, from cooking supplies to beach toys and towels. We were so busy with our son's wedding; I wish we had had more time to relax and enjoy the whole setting. We couldn't find a way to turn on the outside lighting however, so had to use our phones and flashlights. The front porch light may have been burned out. Other than that everything was great! I definitely would recommend this property to a friend or relative!

Clean, comfortable, and large

  • 5 of 5

Well equipped and spotless! We had a wonderful girls weekend at Peaceful Valley and hope to return someday with my family as I know my kids would love the gorgeous beach and crystal clear water. The house was very comfortable and relaxing (and clean!). The fire pit on the beach was the highlight and it was so convenient to have pizza delivered right to our door. We spent a lot of time relaxing in the beautiful living room with the cozy gas fireplace and floor to vaulted ceiling views. Would absolutely recommend!

Perfect week at the perfect house

My wife and 3 young children (all under 5) spent a great week at the house. The beach was clean and the house well-maintained. We hope to return next summer.
