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!

Fabulous, comfortable house with great view!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. It was perfect for our family gathering. The kitchen was well stocked and comfortable to use. It is evident that someone has paid attention to details. Even though it was cold and the wind was gale force, we ventured down to the beach. We would love to return in different seasons to experience the outdoors. It's better than the pictures!

Beautiful Northern Michigan Setting

  • 5 of 5

We (three couples) chose the Peaceful Valley Beach House to bring in the new year and it was a great choice! The house was warm, comfortable and well-appointed. The view of the bay was spectacular and the beach was beautiful even in the winter. We loved the location - close to everything the Traverse City area has to offer. We highly recommend this property!

Girlfriend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at PVBH! Although the weather was a little cool for water sports, we enjoyed walking along the beach and searching for petosky stones. Our days were spent shopping and eating in Traverse City, but loved to return to the beach house in the evening, have some local wine and snacks and catch up on the years that have gone by since our childhood slumber parties!
