My Dream Cottage

  • 5 of 5
This original 1930's log cabin on the shore of Traverse Bay (to the north, away from city lights and boat and car traffic)was everything I had wished for. By the end of the second day, I asked the owner, Debbie, to put us down for the same week next year. The online description is accurate, but still did not prepare me for the perfection of the place. Clean, well maintained and charming. Debbie is friendly, attentive, and always ready to make the stay even nicer. The property is large, with the house placed close to the water. Surrounded by woods and bounded by a large park, there is plenty of room for hiking, bicycling, and other adventures. My daughter was interested in exploring the area by car, and she drove often to Traverse City (10 min.), the peninsula in the middle of the bay (which she said reminded her of Italy, and to Sleeping Bear Dunes. For me, the cottage and the beach held everything I wanted. The cottage itself is delightful, with all log/wood interior, roomy and comfortable living room with floor to ceiling windows looking out on the water and a two-story stone fireplace that we used some mornings and evenings. Debbie has kept the historical ambience by using antique wooden cabinets in the kitchen. The downstairs bedroom is spacious, also with antique furniture. The bathroom is charming, with the surprise of a huge tiled shower. The large sleeping loft is accessible by a spiral staircase or by the original log stairs that winch up to the ceiling when not in use. A large deck extends from living room towards the lake and wraps around the side. We were so close to the beach that after meals on the deck, my two-year old grandson could play on the beach in the sand with us close by to watch. Over 100 feet of private beach to set up sun shelters and play on, with neighborly permission to walk as far as we wanted on the sand. A rowboat, two kayaks, lifejackets and other toys provided. The water is clean and gorgeous, protected in the bay, shallow for a distance so we could exercise by swimming or water walking. The sound of lapping waves were constantly heard. Facing west, I began a ritual of photographing and videoing the gorgeous sunset each night. My son-in-law and I sat on the beach drawing the view with both pencil and pastels. My son-in-law and husband played music on the beach during the day and by the fire pit in the evenings. Now I am back home. Whenever I want to relax, I remember being at my dream lake cottage.

Charming cottage on East Bay

  • 5 of 5
This cottage has an updated exterior with a charming log cabin interior. A lovely private beach on East Bay was just steps away from the deck. The owners are most accommodating and friendly. We enjoyed swimming, kayaking, grilling out and entertaining on the deck. We were able to check in on World Cup Soccer and sit by fire in the field stone fireplace! We had glimpses of the Blue Angels from the beach, yet we were away from the hustle and bustle of Traverse City. We loved our stay and would return. In addition we rented another great cottage across the road which worked well for our group.

Cute Cabin on East Bay

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful retreat away from the hustle and bustle of Traverse City. The cabin is situated in the woods with a spectacular private beach (lots of sand, a great beach fire pit, 3 paddle boards, a row boat and 2 kayaks). My husband and I were there with my parents, my preteen daughter and her friend. The girls loved combing the beach for petosky stones and to their delight, they found over 10 of them! Debbie was great and answered all questions we had including making suggestions that included local's secrets. The cabin is well appointed with lots of toys, life jackets, and kitchen supplies. Even our dogs loved it - they enjoyed taking walks along the beach and wooded road. The only downside was the cozy shower, but that is easily overlooked with all that this cabin has to offer. Thank you Debbie for a great long weekend!!

Owner's Response: I have an update for future renters! That 'cozy shower' is now remodeled into a 5'long porcelain tiled brand new wonderful experience. Now must update my photos from the quaint clawed foot tub. Also my 2 kayaks are now 2 brand new kayaks. Thanks to you faithful renters, I keep updating for your enjoyment.

What a great time on the East Bay!

  • 5 of 5
After staying here this past fall, my wife and I happily returned with our boat, our 2 teenage daughters and their two friends for a week of Sun, Sand and R&R.

From spending some rainy/cooler days in Traverse City, Elk Rapids or Mackinac Island to lots time on the boat in the East Bay while the Sun was shinning, we could not have had a better time staying here.

The home is incredible, its view even better and you truly feel like you are Up North, in the woods and on the water.

Distances:
Mackinac City: 2 hours
Leg's Inn in Cross Village: Great Polish Food, about 90 minutes away
Downtown Traverse City: About 15/20 minutes
Elk Rapids: <10 minutes
Marina for your boat: Elk Rapids Grace Memorial: <10 minutes by land, <20 by Water

We will be back, and you should seriously consider this location for your next getaway!
