SOME SUMMER '14 DATES OPEN--ON DUCK LAKE, INTERLOCHEN- TRAVERSE CITY

Interlochen House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Attached Unit, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10 )

The perfect quiet location just minutes from Downtown Traverse City's action, The Interlochen Arts Academy, and even the Michigan lakeshore /Sleeping Bear Dunes--while quietly letting you relax on an all sports lake!

After vacationing at many VRBO listings, we have decided to share our place with other families. From our experiences, we know what it is like to walk into and rent a home for our family. These experiences have allowed us to create an experience that will save you many headaches and get the maximum fun and relaxation time out of your holiday with us!

One of the best features of this place is that many of the 'little things' are already there and included. For example: we leave you some starter laundry detergent, toilet paper, a cupboard full of spices, etc. You don't have to run to the store for some salt/ pepper, garlic salt type stuff! The kind of things you really don't want to make a special trip to the store to get...is already here for you!

Fully equipped home with a new large deck overlooking the grassy yard leading to your own private waterfront , long dock (fishing and mooring of your boat) make this home a prefect getaway for the whole family to relax, unwind and watch the kids play. Minimal noise and traffic on the road and lakefront area--as we are located off the busy roads on a quiet peninsula, away from 'most' of the tourist!

This is our second home, and is designed to let you relax and think about how 'life should be' without the hussel and bussel of everyday life. If you want the city life or it rains, the 'big town' of Traverse city is only 15 minutes away!

This house has two living rooms, one with no TV and a great view of the lake, and a separate attached studio apartment. This is a great place for the kids to play, watch TV, and make noise, without bothering the rest of the family.

On the beach is a hammock and large fire pit for campfire stories or making some hobo pie treats. Yes the irons are in the house for you to use!

My family likes to play outside. We have rebuilt this entire place with relaxation and comfort in mind. No visitors have ever had a less than expected experience and many return year after year.

Our prime time summer openings are few, but we can't see keeping the tranquility to ourselves, and make it available when we are not able to use it. Therefore, it is not the 'typical rental', but is our other home. You will get to enjoy a comfortable place that feels like your OWN place--and not get the outrageous tax bill associated!!!

Ron purchased this house in 2000

The Traverse City area and northern Michigan are unequaled in summer vacation values. It is as beautiful as any place in the States, and cost much less for a family to vacation than many of the East coast areas. In fact, it is fun to watch how many east cost license plates we see vacationing in OUR vacation land!

Quietness. While most lakefront homes have a busy road zooming by one side of the cottage/house, ours is located on a quiet peninsula with only one road on and off. The only traffic, other than pedestrians, is from the local home owners-- as there are very few full sized homes available to rent in this area.

This makes for an unusually peaceful vacation and few surprises squealing down the road!

Also the location of the place allows for a zillion different day trip adventures. It is also the center for fishing...either right off the dock or to one of many nearby lakes! Yes you can tie your boat up to the dock right at the end of our own private yard.

We loved our stay at Duck Lake and are coming back next year! The kids have a safe play area in front of the place (huge yard with bad mitten set up, and directly on the quiet waterfront area) or we sent them for bike rides around the peninsula. It was true, there is very little traffic, and we felt comfortable sending the kids down to the park to play outside (like kids are supposed to do!). We spent lots of time playing on the water with our boat and worked well with the owner's provided hoist! We even caught some fish (keepers) off the dock. We ended up having so much fun, we only went to town to get food. If the weather would have been bad, I can see that the town would be fun too!

cash or bank check is easiest. Unless you are a last minute fill in for a rare cancellation, we should have plenty of time to pay via bank check.
Notes We hope you will view this place as your own home for the week and leave it in as good of condition as you find it on arrival. We have worked hard to make it feel like a home and not just a "rental"!
