A public boat ramp is located at the downtown village beach just minutes from the cottage.

traveler reviews for this traverse city cottage rental

Great Stay!

Review submitted: May 28, 2014   Date of arrival: May 21, 2014

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.

Owners response: Come and be part of a Northern Michigan vacation/getaway! Our cottage is available April 1 - November 15. Come take advantage of all that the north country has to offer. There is much to do or time for peace and quiet as you see and experience the outdoor beauty all around. Give us a call and make your reservation. You will be glad you did!

Geogeous Cottage

Review submitted: July 24, 2013   Date of arrival: July 14, 2013

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!
