Property Details

Updated: Sep 5, 2016
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 Center & 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).

Spacious and Welcoming

  • 5 of 5

My family (8 adults) just stayed at Linda's for a long weekend of skiing and snowshoeing. The house is exactly as pictured, very cheery and welcoming with lots of natural light and plenty of space for all 8 of us. It was the perfect home away from home for the weekend that allowed us to enjoy time together as a group in the evenings, but also provided privacy and space when needed. The location was perfect for us as we spent our days at Crystal Mountain and our evening in Traverse City, everything was within a reasonable drive.

Linda was extremely sweet and very nice to communicate with. There was a small issue that arose right before we were supposed to arrive and Linda called me immediately to fill me in on the situation and help provide alternatives if they weren't able to address the issue before our arrival. Luckily, all went smoothly and we were able to stick with our original plans and had no issues.

I would definitely stay here again should we find ourselves back in the area next winter!

Great place to have good family week!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin or house as it really is was a perfect place for our family week. We had 3 to 6 people coming and going. It is very spacious house. Downstairs is almost another living space. Lin is very gracious and wants to please and take care of you. We wouldn't hesitate to rent again if in the area.

Lovely Surprise!

  • 5 of 5

My family and our neighbor's family, 8 ppl in total (4 adults and 4 kids) booked this house/cottage for a getaway! We could not have been more pleased to find that we had plenty of room and privacy. 2 full baths - 2 master suites (1 up and one down), 2 bedrooms (we did one for boys and 1 for girls) and kitchen, dining room plus 2 family rooms. We ended up spending most of our time out front playing kickball, our back on the deck or by the fire pit. We did play games in the living room and dining room during the evening hours and storm. We were minutes from the lakes and had easy access to boating and swimming. Only 15 ish minutes from Traverse City - this was the perfect cozy get away for us! Lin - the owner was super easy to work with, too. She followed up, follow through and made sure we were happy.

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.
