About Ronald & Colleen Rohloff

We are a retired couple who went into this project because we wanted a nice place to go whenever we had the desire. As it turns out, we haven't been able to spend much time at our cottage because it is usually all booked up. We have always loved the area because there is always something fun going on in Traverse City. We love to visit the wineries and see where and how they grow and produce their own wine. We love to ride around in the woods looking for morels in the spring-time. Then there's the week-long Cherry Festival, the Film Festival, the air show, and Interlochen is just around the corner with all of its art shows....there always seems to be something going on in the Traverse City area. And the Traverse City area is beautiful.

Ronald & Colleen Rohloff purchased this Cottage in 2012

Why Ronald & Colleen Rohloff chose Traverse City

Here on Bass Lake you have the best of both worlds. A very peaceful place to be; or just 5-10 min. away you can find all the action you could ever want...such as movie theaters, shopping malls, restaurants, health food stores, air port, hospital, artisan shops, etc.

What makes this Cottage unique

We fell in love with this property the very first time we saw it. The sunsets are spectacular since the wrap-around windows face west giving you the very best view. Also, it was exciting to see a bald eagle flying overhead almost everyday. Even though Bass Lake is an all-sports lake, it is very peaceful most of the time. And, the fishing is good...you can actually catch fish right off our dock.

                                                                Great Location! Close to everything in Traverse City. Bass Lake is pretty big, enjoyed every minute on the Pontoon. Worth every penny. The owners were there to show us around property and answer any questions we had. Had an Amazing time, I travel to Traverse City every year, and this trip topped them all.

                                                                Amazing location! Charming cabins & great views.

                                                                The cabins are well thought out, nicely decorated and spacious. We had 12 in the 2 cabins and there was plenty of space for all of us. The owners provided towels, bedding and nicely stocked kitchen, baths & laundry... they thought of every detail! The lake is beautiful, the kids caught bass & bluegill right from the pier. The lake is small and shallow so we tried other lakes in the area for our speedboat, we enjoyed trying different lakes & the bay.

                                                                Thanks for an awesome week!
