vacation rental description

This beautiful family cottage (actually a three bedroom house) is ideally located on a small point surrounded by peaceful Lake George, a small, quiet no-wake lake with great fishing and swimming, just 12 miles SE of Traverse City. The home features an eat-in kitchen with all appliances and amenities, two full bathrooms, a master suite with queen sized pillow-top bed and two smaller bedrooms with a shared door between them. One of the smaller bedrooms has a double bed, the other has a set of single trundle beds. The living room features a double hide-a-bed and plenty of comfy chairs. The Cottage sleeps a total of 8. 

Lake George is a quiet lake without public access. Motor boats (other than trolling motors) are not allowed. However, public access sites to both Arbutus and Spider Lakes are just minutes away. The cottage includes a swimming raft and an aluminum canoe, paddles and life preservers. 

The Cottage is located in a residential area with permanent residents next door. As such, groups looking for a place for big parties or loud music should look at other properties. At the Miller Family Cottage you'll leave the hustle, bustle and noise of bigger lakes behind the minute you drive down the driveway. Once there, you'll see that the Cottage is a place to unwind, relax and reconnect. 

$50 discount if you bring your own linen.  NO SMOKING, NO PETS.

traveler reviews for this traverse city house rental

Love this cabin!

Review submitted: December 20, 2013   Date of arrival: October 11, 2013

My friend and I were looking for a place we could meetup and enjoy Traverse City for the weekend. This cabin was perfect for just that. We were there during the fall, so it was absolutely beautiful to wake up in the morning to see the beautiful fall colors reflected in the lake. It was just so serene!

We also enjoyed the proximity to Traverse City - it wasn't too close nor was it too far away. The cabin itself was very cozy with plenty of room for the two of us. Lots of windows for us to enjoy the pretty views. We didn't have any problems with water or the plumbing, which was a breath of fresh air.

Overall, I strongly recommend this cabin. So cute and relaxing! It have everything you will need.

A perfect place to relax

Review submitted: September 13, 2013   Date of arrival: August 12, 2013

A year ago our vacation consisted of a lot of sight seeing and rushing around. Ever since, we vowed that for our next vacation we wanted to find a place on a lake, and just relax. The Miller cottage proved to be the perfect place to do that. From the second we walked in the door, I felt myself relax, and I was practically in tears at the end of the week, when it was time to go home. The lake is a small, no wake lake. But because of that, it is by far the quietest and most peaceful lake/cottage I have ever been to. The cottage sits on a peninsula, which means you get a fantastic view, right from the deck. We have three young children, and found this to be a wonderful property to bring kids to.

We loved the location. We were removed from the hustle and bustle of Traverse City, yet just minutes away from restaurants, miniature golf, etc. We spent a day at the beach of Grand Traverse Bay, and were back home to the cottage in less than 15 minutes. We also drove to Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes, which was well worth the hour long drive!

If you are looking for a relaxing place to stay, this is an excellent choice!

A Pleasant Peninsula

Review submitted: September 10, 2013   Date of arrival: June 12, 2013

The quietly well-appointed cottage sits on a wonderful little sandy peninsula in small and clean Lake George. We slept in, we ate well, we swam, we paddled, we sunned, we visited on the porch, we gazed at the fire. Tomorrow we'll go into Traverse City, maybe drive to Sleeping Bear Sand dunes, check out Tandem Cider and Leelanau County, or go to Empire and Lake Michigan!
