Traverse City Cottage Rental Special

vacation rental description

Awesome vacation spot less than 10 minutes from Traverse City on Bass Lake (between Long Lake and Silver Lake). Beautifully furnished home right on the water - the lake is just 20 feet of deck away! Every room has a gorgeous lake view.
Lakeside has over 150 feet of private sandy beach with sparkling clear water. 350 acre Bass Lake is an all sports lake - you can bring your own boat or borrow our beautiful new bennington pontoon at a low additional cost (less then half what is charged in town).
This super clean 1750 square foot home has 3 bedrooms (2 have queens and our huge one has a queen plus 2 twins) and 2 full baths. This is a modern home with central air, a fully equipped kitchen including dishwasher, a full laundry room and beautiful hardwood floors. An Absopure water cooler provides delicious spring water - no need to drag cases of bottled water on your vacation.  Grocery stores are just minutes away - one even delivers!
Lakeside has telephone service, high speed wireless internet and cable, 5 TV's, DVD players, a case of current bestseller books and a special children's DVD library they can view from bed. The guest house has been converted to a sparkling new game room (see pix at bottom below) - perfect for separating the generations since it's just across the deck (this allows for late night activities when others may be asleep in the big house). Game room has a wall of glass facing the lake.

If you have a family member that can't 'do steps', this is truly a vacation paradise for them. They can be totally on their own - from the kitchen to the bedroom to the bathroom to the outside deck chairs to the beach and the water - no climbing involved!

Your dog, if you bring one, will have an incredible vacation - no leash required, and no crazy extra charges for that special member of your family!

cottage rental amenities

Lake at your door with 150 feet of sandy beach. Great fishing right off the dock of 'keeper' sized bass, pike, bluegills and perch. Bass Lake is great for tubing and jet skis, or just peaceful exploring. A canoe and several inflatable canvas single person pontoons are parked on the beach for your free use.
There's a gas grill and dining furniture on the sunny lakeside deck and a second picnic table in the huge grassy side yard. On the beach is a big wood swing to watch unbelievable sunsets from and a nice fire pit with free firewood. There's plenty of deck chairs, loungers and tables (and ashtrays for the 'outside only' smokers). All linens except beach towels are provided, plus an initial supply of paper and soap products.

Your dog is welcome at NO extra charge (just a common sense pet agreement form).
Plenty of parking for boat trailers and vehicles in the yard. Very quiet and peaceful location on dead end private road, just 200 yards off pavement and less than 5 miles from town.
Best of all - the entire PRIVATE compound is just for you and your family - no close neighbors, no traffic noise - it's so relaxing you won't want to leave!

traveler reviews for this traverse city cottage rental

We're going back here this summer!

Review submitted: February 22, 2013   Date of arrival: August 12, 2012

We stayed here last summer & are returning this coming July. The place was a lot nicer than the photos showed! Everything was so clean. My sis joined us & she is in a wheelchair. Because there's no steps to the beach, we were able to wheel her right in to the water & she loved it! (she cried she was so happy!) Our lab, Donovan, exhausted himself jumping off the dock for hours. The main reasons we rebooked for this summer are the 'extras' we enjoyed - free firewood, a spring water cooler, separate game room big enough for all of us to be in together & last, but certainly not least..the friendly owners who were available to us 24/7. They even provided a crate for Donovan to stay in when we were off enjoying the sand dunes. As a dog family, this will be our vacation choice spot from now on. :)

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, people with disabilities, families with teenagers, girls getaway, pet-friendly
