Lake Ann House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, (sleeps 6)

This cozy Lake Ann home sleeps 6 people. It is located on Lake Ann off a quiet cove near the mouth of the Platte River. Lake Ann is a 570 acre all-sports lake with excellent fishing and abundant wildlife.

This is a unique property in that you and your family get full advantage of an all-sports lake without the noise and traffic of power boats speeding along your shoreline. A private dock is provided - be sure to bring your own pontoon boat, power boat, or jet ski! You may also rent boats and jet skis locally from private companies. Take the 12' fishing boat for a row around the bay or paddle the canoe along the peaceful shoreline. Explore the entire lake with the two kayaks (one of which is equipped for fishing) and discover Lake Ann's secluded nooks and crannies! Feel free to bring along your own small outboard or trolling motor for the rowboat/fishing boat! Splash along the shallow, sandy shoreline! Jump off the end of the dock into the crystal clear water – climbing out is easy with the dock ladder! Some of the best fishing in the lake takes place right off the end of the dock! Rise early enough and you may catch deer drinking at the shore and wandering in the yard!

The lake front yard is very large – approx 100' of lake frontage – providing lots of room for running and playing games. Enjoy the available yard games - croquet, Frisbee golf, lacrosse toss, ladder ball, boom ball, washer toss, and bean bag toss! A hammock is available for extra relaxation near the water. An area around the house is fenced in, keeping young children secure. A large fire pit is located lake side, with plenty of firewood available. A small garden shed holds water and yard accessories such as paddles, life vests, chairs, and games. A basketball and several tennis rackets are also located in the shed for use at the Almira Township Park located on Ole White Drive.

All bedrooms are located on the main floor. The master bedroom is very large and will easily accommodate a playpen or portable crib. The kitchen table sits 6-8 people comfortably. A roomy 3-season porch with seating for 10 is located off the main living room - with breathtaking views of the lake, it is guaranteed to be a favorite gathering place! Open the porch windows and enjoy summer evenings with family and friends! Head outside to the deck and take advantage of the stainless gas grill!

The main floor bathroom is equipped with a standard tub/shower. The TV (located in the living room) has a DVD player. Listen to your favorite CDs using the CD player located in the kitchen. Assorted board games/puzzles/card games/books provided. Keep cool under the ceiling fans located in the master bedroom and living/dining area.

Kids will enjoy hanging out in the lower level walk-out with sectional couch, cable TV, DVD player, Nintendo 64/game cartridges, computer with games, an air hockey table, a foosball table, and a ping pong table. Play Texas Hold 'em with the portable poker felt table top. Watch movies from the DVD movie collection available for your use! The newly remodeled lower level bathroom is equipped with a large shower. The laundry room is also located on the lower level.

This home is centrally located to numerous activities. Many golf courses provide excellent golfing, and the famous Lake Michigan beaches of Empire/Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes are only 20 minutes away. The Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore was recently voted the best beach area in the nation by Good Morning America! Take the entire family for a one-of-a-kind experience at the Cherry Bowl Drive-in in Honor. Traverse City is only 14 miles east with excellent shopping and restaurants. Visit local wineries along the Leelanau/Mission peninsulas. Take a fall color-tour along the famous route M-22; the scenery along that roadway is magnificent during September and October. The state park is a 2 minute walk away with hiking/biking trails. Take in a concert or live theatre presentation at Interlochen Center for the Arts, less than 15 minutes away. Be sure to visit the Lake Ann Grocery in downtown Lake Ann. The store is amazingly stocked, having almost everything anyone could ever need! DVDs are also available for rent at the LA Grocery.

Why Karen Getz chose Lake Ann

My parents have had a home in Lake Ann for almost 20 years, and my husband and I fell in love with the area after vacationing here yearly with our children. A surprising opportunity presented itself, and before long, we also became property owners in Lake Ann. We actually had no intention on renting out the house, but after we were relocated to NC, it sat idle for most of the year. We decided that until we were able to return, we should share the special benefits of this home with others who love Northern Michigan!

What makes this house unique

This is the most relaxing place in the world! We enjoy the quiet atmosphere, the wildlife, the lakeside setting, and Traverse City offerings. We get all the benefits of the lake - the loons swimming in our bay, the great fishing, the boating and tubing, the quality family time! All of us look forward to playing cards on the porch, bonfires and s'mores lakeside, and just being together! You just can't beat early morning coffee on the deck - picture-perfect sunshine reflecting off a water surface smooth as glass................. life doesn't get any better than that!

Pure Michigan

  • 5 of 5
The Getz getaway is a fabulous property with all anyone would want for a Pure Michigan experience. The home is exceptionally equipped and comfortable located on a quiet, great fishing lake. The kayaks were used daily,and there are lots of toys in the basement, if the water, fish, loons, ducks, herons,and eagles are not enough. The location is perfect for an Interlochen concert, farmers markets, trips to TC, Suttons Bay, And Leland and the beautiful Sleeping Bear Nat'l Park. We are returning guests-and we will return again!

Lake Ann Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We recently returned from our stay in Lake Ann and haven't stopped talking about how wonderful it was! The house is amazing, they have thought of everything and it is extreamly clean. Our dog loved running around in the backyard and playing in the lake. We grilled out most nights, had coffee in the sunroom every morning with a book and even fit in a few games of air hockey. The location is perfect for day trips to Traverse City, Sleeping Bear, Moomers and Lake Michigan. Lake Ann itself is a great little town and everyone is very friendly. Having such a beautiful home to come back to at the end of the day really made the trip that much better and more relaxing. We hope to make a trip to Lake Ann our yearly vacation!

Clean, Cleaner, Cleanest!!

  • 5 of 5
The first thing you'll notice is how CLEAN this home is, and this is from someone who is picky about that! Definitely a home rather than a cottage, there is more than enough space in just about every room. Not that you'll need it, because you'll spend every evening in the lovely screened-in porch. :) Location of home is great in terms of going anywhere within the Leelanau Peninsula. House is at the end of a cove on the lake so the water by the shore quickly gets mucky and deep, but the water levels are lower than normal this year, and the location also means the lot is private and quiet. The lake is clean and the deck ladder allows for easy swimming off the end of the dock. There is every "toy" you could ever want, from the boat/canoe/kayaks to ping-pong/foosball/air hockey. Karen (owner) is great to work with and was always prompt to reply to a phone message or email. My only suggestion would be a room air-conditioner in the main space, as it was 95 when I got there! Fans in every room did help. Overall, it's a lovely vacation rental- and it is obvious that Karen works hard to give her renters a great experience!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your observations and kind words. The cleanliness the home is very important to us, and we do work hard to ensure our guests have the best vacation experience possible. The lake bottom does tend to get soft approximately 8-10 feet from shore, especially along the dock, but the shoreline is very firm and sandy. We find the shallow water along the shore is perfect for young children as they wade and play in the water. The dock ladder makes it possible to enter and exit the water very safely and easily - swimmers do not have to walk through the soft, loamy bottom to reach the deeper, clear water off the end of the dock. We also enjoy spending time on the 3 season/screened porch - it's a wonderful place to enjoy the lake breezes and the sounds of summer, not to mention the great views! Thank you so much for choosing our lake house for your vacation and sharing your experience - we hope you created special memories that will last a lifetime!

A great time at Lake Ann again!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this Lake Ann home in 2011 and decided it was so nice we'd do it again! We enjoyed our stay once more. We brought our trolling motor this time for the rowboat. My daughter and I motored over to the Lake Ann general store provisions for lunch since we were stranded one day without a car. Conveniently located to all the areas we were interested in seeing. Recommendations: Try the beach in Elberta...beautiful sweeping views and wide sand beach. Check out Willow Winery & Black Star Farms on the Leelanau peninsula. Everyone's friendly and the food great at the Mackinaw Brewery restaurant in Traverse City. Lots of great deals on clothing at Momentum in Traverse City.
The fenced in yard is great for our dogs. Everything you need in the kitchen. Love the 2 kayaks. Love the screened in porch.
