Traverse City Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom 2.5 bath home, 20 min from Sleeping Bear Dunes, 10 min to Traverse

Manorwood is a newer, 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath air-conditioned home, and 10 minutes from Traverse City, on a quiet 2 acre rural setting with 250 ft private frontage on a private, 35 acre quiet sports lake. Less than a mile down the dead-end road is a 228 acre land conservancy with walking/bicycle trails through the forest. Start the day with sightseeing, golfing, shopping, and visiting wineries. Finish the day with a campfire and watch the deer emerge from the woods. Dyer Lake is perfect for kayaking, canoeing, fishing and viewing the wild life. If a day of swimming is in the plans, there is a great public beach 6 minutes away on a 3000 acre lake. Lake Michigan's West Bay is only 10 minutes away in Traverse City. Enjoy the great beach while mooring your boat off the beach right downtown. Owners live 2 miles away so are available to assist. Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore was named the most beautiful place in America by viewers of ABC's 'Good Morning America is 20 minutes away.

Lake Details: Manorwood is located on Dyer Lake. This is a private, and quiet 35 acre lake with 250 ft of private frontage. This lake is good for fishing and other silent sports. While Dyer lake is a clean, clear lake, the lake bottom is too soft to be considered a swimming lake. Less than a mile down the road is the boat launch to Bass Lake, an all sports lake. There are two really nice swimming lakes with great sandy beaches just minutes away: Long Lake (3000 acre lake)only 6 minutes away and the bay of Lake Michigan, only 5-7 minutes away. You can moor your boat off shore on the bay as well. Our guests can have the best of both worlds; their own private fishing lake with 250 ft of private frontage with a row boat provided and easy access to three area all sports lakes as well as Lake Michigan. Email us so we can help you Mapquest to locate Manorwood in relation to the lakes. The house is across the road from the lake frontage, but the road is a dead-end road with little traffic.

Area Attractions: There is so much to do in the Traverse City area. Some examples are: winery tours and tasting rooms, Children’s Museum, Moomers Homemade Ice Cream (voted #1 in U.S.), Pirate’s Cove Adventure Park, the State Theatre (home of the Traverse City Film Festival), The village at Grand Traverse Commons, Dennos Museum, Interlochen Arts and Performance Academy, Music House Museum, Sleeping Bear National Lake Shore Park, Wuerfel Park (home to the minor league baseball team-Beach Bums) as well as all the biking, hiking, canoeing, and kayaking available in our area. You can Google search these activities or get the information when you arrive at the cottage in our resource book.

About Marian Brady

My husband and I have been married since 1979. We moved to Traverse City in 1980 from the city of Detroit. We have raised our 5 children in this beautiful area. We take great pride in providing a clean/comfortable home for our guests. Since we live only 2 miles from the home we are available to our guests.

Marian Brady purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Marian Brady chose Traverse City

We fell in love with the home and setting while driving in the area one fall day. It was a centenial farm wtih apple orchards in the back yard and forest behind that. The home is on 2 acres and looks over a quiet private lake. We bought the home with the idea to remodel it and use it as our own retirement home. We did a total renovation of the home. The setting is one of peace, and only 10 min from Traverse City, 20 minutes from Sleeping Bear Dunes.

What makes this cottage unique

The home is on a quiet dead-end street just outside of Traverse City. The lake is on one side of the road, a forest is behind the apple orchard in our backyard. The homes in the area are on 2 acres of land, most of the families are descendents of the original farm family. They all take great pride in their homes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We headed up Northern Michigan to see the wonderful Fall colors in October. We had a wonderful long weekend at this fabulous house. The house is spotless and very comfortable - the kids just loved the house so much that they didn't want to leave. We also enjoyed the quiet location with lots of room for the kids to run around and explore.

We took the Grandparents with us and there was ample room for us all. The views of the lake were just gorgeous. We spent most of the days driving around looking at all the beautiful fall colors and really enjoyed coming 'home' to the rocking chairs on the deck (overlooking the lake).

Would definitely stay here again and would recommend this house anyone.

So much fun!

  • 5 of 5
This house was the perfect setting for our family to gather! We live in Seattle Washington, and my family lives in Lancaster PA! This house was pretty much in the middle for everyone, so we went with it! The house was clean, well maintained and comfortable! It easily fit 4 kids ages 12, 10, 4 and 1 and 6 adults! It is so close to everything that we were able to do multiple day trips. One to the peninsula for some wine tasting, one to the Sleeping Bear Dunes & several trips to downtown Traverse City! It feels like it's in the country, but is still SO close to everything we needed!

Additionally, the owners were EASY to work with. Very helpfull and responsive! I highly recommend staying at Manor Wood when in the Traverse City area.

Forget Stayin' At A Hotel!

Forget Stayin' At A Hotel!
  • 5 of 5
Several of my family members and I stayed at this home on the weekend of my sister's wedding. This well maintained home is very spacious and absolutely fabulous. It's off the 'beaten path' but close enough to any shopping or other attractions of interest. The yard is huge, (deer in the backyard in the early morning), enough room for the little ones to get out and burn off some energy prior to their 'pre-wedding' nap. Parking not an issue...room for several cars to park. Very quiet and peaceful setting. We all loved the front porch ... I think we sat out there clear into the early morning hours after the rehersal dinner; and then got up and sat out there drinking coffee for another few hours. We couldn't have been blessed with a better weekend relative to the accomodations, weather and the friendly service provided by the owners.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5
This home is better than most people's homes! It is brand new with every amenity you could want and more! A beautiful large open kitchen with all appliances, dining room with large table, large living room with electric fireplace and mounted television with cable. Three large bedrooms upstairs, a finished basement. You could house an army! Wonderful view of the lake and fields behind the house for walks. Wildlife (deer, bunnies, wild turkeys) that wander across the property and in the fields. Close to Traverse City and all the local sights. I highly recommend this lovely home!!! Joanne

Most wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5
Upon arrival, the warmth of the house was tangible. The decor was thoughtful and stylish. The common area was roomy for a dozen people but yet intimate for breakfast for two. The house is large enough to have space for several different activities at the same time of reading, movie watching, jacuzzi bath,or sitting by the fireplace without interruption. The walls were so well insulated that when people were showering, you could not hear it. The bed were so comfortable. The kitchen was easy to cook a full course meal. The outside was wonderful for walks.
