Property Details

Updated: May 11, 2015
House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 8 Sleeps

This unique all season vacation home is nestled on 5 very private acres of land yet located within walking or driving distance to all the local attractions.

We are located just 5 minutes from Interlochen Arts Academy & Music Festivals, 20 minutes from Crystal Mountain golf & skiing or Traverse City shopping, dining and summer events. Bring your fishing boat, canoe, kayaks & water toys. We are walking distance to public access (only 2/10th of a mile) to beautiful Green Lake.

Whether watching the sun rise over a cup of coffee on the porch, or roasting marshmallows at night in the fire pit, you will no doubt see curious deer or perhaps turkeys as they graze the surrounding woods.

This bright and airy home has a spacious floor plan (2000 sq ft), is newly remodeled and is tastefully yet comfortably furnished. (Not your typical cottage décor). With 2 complete levels of living space, it is perfect for sharing with another couple, families with grandparents or older children or just for a girl's getaway.

One level boasts a fully furnished, completely outfitted kitchen with dishwasher, formal dining room, 3 bedrooms, full bath, full laundry room and living room with cable TV.

The second level features another living room with cable TV, a kitchenette with sink, fridge & microwave, a full bath, office and a master bedroom en suite (complete with an adjoining lounge area perfect for relaxing with a book and glass of wine).

Wonderful Peaceful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
The house is better than described. Lin is the greatest to work with and wants to make sure you are comfortable and happy.
It was funny when we were first driving into the neighborhood looking for the house I got a little worried. I figured the nicer gray ranch style home must be it and it was. When you walk inside I was totally blown away and could relax knowing my friends would be comfortable. We all loved the place and were super comfortable and felt at home. We golfed and played tourist during the day returning to enjoy the deck outside. The house was clean, the beds comfortable, the living space was wonderful and more than the 4 of us needed. Both bathrooms and all bedrooms are of good size. The big kitchen upstairs and mini down has all your needs. All appliances work great. There was a low hot water problem in the downstairs bathroom and Lin got a plumber out right away. The wifi worked great throughout the house. The wild turkeys visiting the yard were nice to watch. Short walk down to Green Lake and Bud's is a great place for drinks, food and ice cream. It's an easy 15 to 20 min ride into Traverse City. It's a short drive and great back roads to Crystal Mountain, Frankfort, Point Betsie Lighhouse and Sleeping Bear Dunes. We visited Fishtown and Suttons Bay. Couldn't find a bad restaurant in Traverse City. Love the fresh cherries. I highly recommend renting from Lin and enjoying her peaceful home. I believe she has another one in the area.

The Acres is what we would call a "sleeper!" Modest from the outside, this home provides beautiful surprises at every turn!
The house is appointed with fine taste; it is light in colors and in atmosphere; the owners have provided everything anyone could want in terms of ease of daily living. The kitchen is completely stocked with cookery, flatware and china table settings. Beds are comfortable and bedding provided. A lovely change from a typical cabin experience. The lower level apartment offers privacy and comfort, should renters need that. Cable TV and WiFi both add to your stay's convenience. For a week when the temperature exceeded 90º each day, we were ever so glad to be able to return to cool comfort and enjoy a renewing night's rest. Every thought was given to make this a home away from home.

Excellent house in the country

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 stayed at this property over the 4th of July. It was absolutely nice inside and we enjoyed out stay immensely. The owners went out of their way to make sure everything was absolutely perfect and actually put together a propane grill for our use and for future uses as well. The kitchen was very well stocked with utensils and plates which we were absolutely thrilled about. We've stayed at quite a few different places and they were always lacking of utensils, etc.etc. If you love the opportunity to view wildlife we saw 2 does and a fawn and a single turkey in the backyard. The only thing that made our stay a bit uncomfortable was the fact that this place doesn't have air conditioning but the owners went out of their way to provide us with multiple room fans which helped immensely. The downstairs did stay nicely cool which was one reason we hardly saw my daughter.I would DEFINITELY recommend this place !

Activity and Interests

In summer there are all sorts of fun things going on ...

The Arts Academy has music concerts throughout the summer, and in Traverse City, the beaches on the bay are rated the best freshwater beaches in the country. There are wine tastings in shops downtown and many of the wineries feature wine tasting tours throughout the year. The main street is blocked off in Traverse City on Friday evenings for FRIDAY NIGHT LIVE, where people can meander through the shops, listen to street bands and sample the many FABULOUS restaurants.

Then there is, of course, the Cherry Festival July 3 -10th - a week long event featuring local and well-known live bands daily, carnival rides, and the US Navy Blue Angels, just to name a few.

The Traverse City Film Festival is another July event that features a series of selected films shown at the newly refurbish State Theatre downtown. Additionally, there are FREE movies shown at dusk in the open air park on Grand Traverse Bay on a 50' screen Food and drinks during the film fest are VERY REASONABLE which makes this event very affordable for familys with kids- they'll have lots of fun too.

Finally don't forget the 4th of July fireworks on Grand Traverse Bay- simply the best in Northern Michigan.

Take home the bounty of Northern Michigan - U-Pick fruits in season....FRESH cherries, peaches, pears - apples and pumpkins in the fall.

For a month-to-month look at what's going on in and around Northern Michigan, google traverse magazine, then plan your next getaway to our great town of Interlochen.
