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!
