Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here while attending our sons graduation from Interlochen Arts Academy high school, which is about a 1/2 hour drive from the cottage. Enjoyed the porch every evening looking out at the lake. The pictures and description is exactly as it appears. Very nice neighbors and surrounding areas. We had a baby fox visit and my 25 year old daughter saw her first snake while we walked along the railroad tracks, (we live in a place with no snakes). Thanks for the great stay.

Geogeous Cottage

  • 5 of 5
This cottage was amazing! Beyond our expectations. The pictures really do no justice. We travel a lot and this place is definitely the most well taken care of and cleanest place we have stayed. Very well stocked with everything you could possibly need. Most places we stay at with kitchens have real sparse supplies and never enough of what you need. These owners thought of everything when it comes to this. A HUGE plus is it also has a washer and dryer!! Which traveling with two kids 3 and under was a huge blessing for us...and they supplied the detergent! My daughters loved the porch overlooking the lake. The view from there is gorgeous as well. You can see the sun rise every morning and watch the boats on the water. I told my husband if it wasn't so far away I would want to live their year round. You will not be disappointed!

Great cottage, amazing views!

  • 5 of 5
Great cottage! Lots of space. We were traveling with our son who was 15 months at the time, and asked if a pack-n- play was available for him to sleep in at the cottage. The owner was able to find and put up a pack n play, and our son slept perfectly every night. We enjoyed the surrounding area, and nearby village which had a nice restaurant - serving broasted chicken.. stunning. Thanks to the owners for a great stay and super easy transaction. If we're planning another visit to the Traverse City area, we'll be hoping to rent this cottage again!

Owner's Response: This reveiw speaks for itself. We want to offer the best possible facilities that we can for folks who come not only from the U.S. but other countries. We believe the Fife Lake/Traverse City area offers many, many opportunities for vacations full of adventure or quiet time for relaxing to the haunting calls of the loons floating across the lake. Let us help you enjoy the vacation or weekend you have been dreaming of. Questions? Give us a call. John and Sally

Amazingly Beautiful Cottage

  • 5 of 5
This house was beautiful! 5 girlfriends of mine stayed for a weekend and all wished we would have taken a long vacation. The house has this wonderful breeze that keeps everything comfortable and cool as well as a porch full of windows that outlooks the beautiful Fife Lake. Everything was very clean and the owners are the sweetest people. We would definitely come back and are already talking about when we should try and rent this cottage next year for another girls weekend.

Wonderful time over the 4th of July

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed at the cabin over the 4th of July week and had a wonderful time. We had never been to the area so we were taking our chances and trusting that the pictures and description of the cabin were accurate. They were spot on!! The cabin had a very homey feel and had all of the amentities that we needed. Despite the area going through a heat wave and the cabin not having AC, we remained comforable with the ceiling fans and lower nighttime temperatures. At the suggestion of the owner, we stayed in Fife Lake for their fireworks and just pulled chairs and a blanket to a spot behind the cabin vs fighting crowds and traffice. What a show!! The town itself put on a great show but there were also random other fireworks being shot off from various areas of the lake that we could see.

For those boating, the lake is perfect. Not an overwhelming one but a decent size that always appeared to be like glass and never choppy. Unfortunately, we did not have a boat and may look into renting one for a future visit but for those who have one, it is perfect!!!

It is close Traverse City (and a gorgeous drive in between which can only be breathtaking in the fall) and we spent a few days there. We canoed as well on the Manistee River which was a lot of fun (although a bit longer than we expected).

If you are looking for a cute getaway cabin, definitely look into this cabin.

Owner's Response: Summer go by too fast? Come spend a few days this fall in beautiful northern Michigan. We are now booking late August through mid November. Come see the seasons change from the vantage point of our cottage over looking the lake. We look forward to your call. John and Sally

Location

Activity and Interests

Fife Lake is 25 minutes southeast of Traverse City in Grand Traverse County just off of highway 131. There is great bass, walleye, and panfish fishing on Fife Lake. A public boat ramp is located at the downtown village beach just minutes from the cottage. Fife Lake offers a new library(Wi-Fi equipped), restaurants, museum, grocery store, hardware, etc. Picturesque Mirror Lake is two blocks from the cottage with swimming and fishing available. Many other lakes and streams are nearby for kyaking boating and other water sports.

Traverse City hosts many tourist activities throughout the year. Major attractions include the National Cherry Festival and the Traverse City Film Festiva. Many nearby towns offer additional shopping, antiquing, great restaurants, entertainment. Biking and hiking trails abound. Golf courses are plentiful and the beauty of the great lakes and Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes make touring a delight.

Add to all this, local winery tours and tastings, concerts at Interlochen Arts Academy, and fall color tours provide you with a funfilled vacation. You might also just want to sit on the front porch enjoying an evening breeze, a good book, and the haunting calls of loons coming across the lake.
