CLEAN & RELAXING COTTAGE ON ARBUTUS LAKE - GREAT FISHING AND SWIMMING!

Traverse City Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 Bdrm, 1 Bath, Lake Front/View Cottage - Minutes from Downtown Traverse City

About 7 miles south of Traverse City south just off Garfield Road and just north of Kingsley. On the south end Arbutus Lake. Other cottages are available so please call or email us - check out #283199 on HomeAway.com.

We have a recently remodeled cottage in this vacation lake resort which can accommodate 6 to 8 people. The lake property has 400 ft. of private beach with a sandy bottom, two rafts and buoys, four 30-ft docks, children's playground, volleyball, basketball, horseshoes, barbecue grills and fire pits.

If you are boating and/or fishing, the resort features a large boat house with private secured lockers, a screened-in fish-cleaning house with running water and a boat launch. Pontoon boat rental is available for an additional fee.

This is also a great location if you are planning to take a fall color tour so don't limit yourself just to summer!

Small pets are considered and renters are asked to clean up after them. The resort is not handicap accessible.

The heated vacation cottage has a newly constructed deck, kitchen with microwave, dishes, pots and pans, coffee maker and toaster. Bed linens and towels are not provided, however bedspreads, pillows and blankets are in the cottage.

The resort and cottage is secluded and quiet, located on wooded Arbutus Lake.

Nearby recreation includes golf, tennis, hiking, bicycling, horseback riding and shopping.

GREAT PLACE!

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at the cottage for July 4th week 2014. There were 4 adults and one child, we had plenty of room for everyone. The lake is great for swimming or for kids playing in the sand, you can also take a boat out to fish. Cottage was clean and had all pot and pans, dishes that you would need for your stay. Traverse City is a short ride away. The only thing I would suggest is to bring a small bath rug, there aren't any and when you have 5 people taking showers it gets pretty messy with sand and water everywhere. Great place over all!

WONDERFUL VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Our vacation was wonderful and the cottage was beautiful and comfortable for 6 adults. We did have a little difficulty finding the cottage, but quickly settled in after we located the cottage. Loved the location, close to everything. Loved the beach and the use of the row boat was fun. The cottage was supplied with all the comforts of home. Thank you very much for giving us an opportunity for staying at such a great location. We try to get a whole week next time.
We all had a great time!

BEAUTIFUL AND QUIET

  • 5 of 5
Had a little difficulty finding the exact cottage. But once we did, we were so happy, it was very clean and exactly as described. We had 6 adults and there was plenty of room the cottage was very well stocked plates, utensils etc. and close enough to the city. We were really happy with the location and the beautiful view. Thank you so much for accommodating my family we will defiantly stay here again. Loved every minute and did not want to go home. We have already recommended this and passed out some of the business cards to other friends and co-workers.but not to many, we do not want to give away our wonderful find and have it booked for our next adventure.

PERFECT VACATION DESTINATION

  • 5 of 5
My family absolutely loved this vacation cottage as well as the property. Starting with the cottage, Scott and Crystl thought of every detail. Recently remodeled, this cottage came with all of the comforts of home. Beautiful tile floors, lots of storage, ceiling fans in every room, all of the necessary amenities that a kitchen needs to feel like home, new furniture all with a beautifully decorated touch. Before arriving I was a little concerned that there was no air conditioning in the cottage, but I was pleasantly suprised. Due to the tree coverage of the cottage (as well as all of the ceiling fans), there was no need for AC at all. Two of the days we were there the temperatures even went over 90 degreees and it was always comfortable in the cottage. The new deck they just had built was over the top! We spent more time on the deck than in the cottage. With the spaciousness and shade coverage as well as the views, the deck was one of my favorite parts of the cottage. The property itself was also amazing. For families with small children the lake provided an extra security that was appreciated. Classified as a no wake lake, tucked away in a cove, the only boats were small fishing boats and an occational pontoon. The fishing in the small lake was wonderful. I personally caught over 30 fish during the week we were there! For those interested in the more fast paced water activities, Arbutus 1 is connected to a larger section of the lake (just around the bend) where these activities are allowed, so everyone can enjoy their own personal choice of water activities. The location of the property was also a major plus. Although the area is very rural, firewood, groceries, and other necessities could be reached in less than a 5 minute drive. The scenic drive to Traverse City was only 15 minutes away providing lots of fun activities for families or adult entertainment alike. This was by far the best vacation experience due to the beautiful cottage, property, location, activities available...everything! We can't wait to go back next year!

PERFECT VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
This was absolutely the best vacation home that I have ever stayed in! I don't have one negative thing to say about the cottage or the property! The cottage was immaculate with beautiful tile floors, new furniture, drywalled rooms, new pots and pans, excellent storage, etc. It was beautifully decorated making it feel like a home away from home. The deck was dreamy! With the location of the trees, the deck as well at the cottage stayed nice and cool all day long. Although there was no air conditioning, I was surprised that even on the day that reached over 90 degrees it wasn't needed due to the excellent tree covering and the ceiling fans in every room. The property itself was also exceptional. The area was quiet with lots of beautiful nature to enjoy. The lake was pristine and provided lots of excellent fishing. For families with children this lake provided peace of mind as it is a no wake lake so only small fishing boats and pontoons ventured in. The area designated for swimming is tucked away in a beautiful little cove making it safe as well as fun! For those who like the bigger lakes, a small trip around the bend connects the lake to a much larger lake providing access for the faster paced water activities. The location of the property was only a 15 minute ride from downtown Traverse City with lots of fun family activities to enjoy. Although the area was very rural, stores for supplies were less than a 5 minute drive. I would rate this vacation cottage as a definite 5 star, and my family can't wait to go again next year!

LOVELY AND RELAXING

  • 5 of 5
Pleasantly surprised how clean, nicely decorated and modern the cottage was without losing the beautiful feel of being at a lake cottage. I didn't feel I was giving up the comforts of home. Plenty of ceiling fans and very much appreciated how quiet they all were. You can tell by the upgrades and extras the owners are very much interested in making sure their guests enjoy their stay. Great patio area with tables and chairs built off the dock to read, play cards or just relax.
A short ride to downtown Traverse to eat or do some fun shopping in many of their unique shops-women will love it!
Would definately recommend to a friend!
