Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a wonderful week at Cozy Cottage. It was perfect for our family-grandparents, couple and four year old. The decor was charming, had well appointed kitchen, and was incredibly clean. Maybe the most comfortable bed we've ever slept in. Fabulous view of the lake. Good place to take day trips from. I would recommend bring groceries as the local grocery is poor and there are no really good local restaurants.

Owner's Response: Our Cozy Cottage is in a the quaint village of Fife Lake located on the shore of the lake. The local market is fine for all your basic groceries needs. If renters want specialty meats, organic food choices, and large a variety of locally grown fresh vegetables these types of items are readily available in places like Traverse City just a 25 minute drive from the cottage.

Likewise, the Fife Lake Inn, in the center of the village offers a traditional "bar/restaurant" menu. In addition, there is a cafe that serves a good breakfast and lunch. For those looking for wider local and international flavor for dining just Google "Traverse City Restaurants". Opportunities are available to eat at the beach, at food trucks downtown, and at restaurants know for international dishes. Eating in and around the area can be an exiting culinary adventure. Enjoy!

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.

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.
