beautiful historic Old Mission Peninsula. It is situated in the

woods and has an accompanying waterfront lot providing access to West

Grand Traverse Bay. You can view beautiful sunsets over the bay from

either the front porch or beach deck. The natural rocky shoreline is

an excellent place for swimming, rock collecting, or evening

Charming vintage summer home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our 3 year old granddaughter absolutely loved this place. It is very clean, and quite charming. The owner went out of his way to make sure our needs were met. We will definitely return!

Great bay views, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in the house on the bay. While we were there, we had record heat, so though no air conditioning, the house stayed comfortable in its shady spot and with the fans. The beach was a great spot to watch the fireworks from as well. Our little fisherman spent tons of time at the water fishing. The house was well equipped with wi-fi, supplies like coffee filters, paper towels and laundry detergent, cable and DVD player and a cd/ipod player.

All in all, it was a wonderful experience. Would rent again.
