BEAUTIFUL COTTAGE WITH ALL-SPORTS LAKE ACCESS, AIR CONDITIONING, WIFI

Traverse City Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1300 sq. ft, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8-10

Enjoy all the comforts of home in classic northern Michigan style! This spacious, well-maintained vacation home has everything you need for a carefree, peaceful retreat or family getaway. It's conveniently located just 15 - 20 minutes from Traverse City on Duck Lake Peninsula - a beautiful wooded community surrounded by lake views, great for walking, biking, boating, or just relaxing and getting away from it all. Close to town, yet peaceful and quiet, away from crowds and traffic. Duck Lake is a beautiful 1900-acre lake with a sandy bottom; if your group enjoys watersports or fishing, you can be on the water in minutes any time you wish, and on one of the best all-sports lakes in the area. A private boat launch is located just a short distance from the cottage; a lake access area is located across the street for swimming and lakeside picnics. In the evening, cook up a feast for your group in our fully-equipped kitchen or outdoors on the gas grill. Enjoy a backyard campfire, or relax by the fireplace while watching your favorite movie or sporting event! Large windows and sliding glass doors provide ample daylight or privacy as needed, with easy access to decks on front and back. Additional amenities for your comfort and convenience include high-speed internet, central air and heat, ceiling fans, soft water, full-size washer and dryer, and more. Cottage is professionally cleaned after every guest.

This beautiful lakeside community includes five lake accesses, a free private boat launch, quiet low-traffic streets, and a community recreation area with playground, covered pavilion, tennis court, basketball court, and volleyball net. This cottage is a great option for those who don't need the expense of a waterfront property to enjoy all that the Traverse City area offers.

EXCELLENT!!

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is kept in an excellent state by the owners...they make sure you have everything you need and let you know what isn't available. The neighbors were nice enough to come over and offer for our boat to be moored at their dock during our stay. Quiet neighborhood but close enough to Traverse City for supplies and fishing on the bay. We had an excellent time, was quite comfortable and plan to return next year. With my father being ill the past year we have rented quite a few places and this is by far the cleanest and most comfortable that we've experienced. WELL DONE Lisa & Steve!!

GREAT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
Our family enjoyed our stay at the cottage. It was clean. The kitchen was great. We made most of our meals there. There is a shower in the laundry room which is very convenient especially with children. The area was quiet and peaceful.

The location was great. We were close to grocery stores and gas stations. Traverse City was close by we went there a few times. One day we rented a pontoon boat on Torch Lake. Visited Sleeping Bear Dunes. We had a picnic at a park in Suttons Bay. There were also days of hanging out and relaxing at the cottage taking walks, reading books, watching movies, taking naps, making smores.

We didn’t want to leave. It’s a place we would recommend to others and would go back again.

FAMILY FUN GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Our Family wanted to get away for the weekend. We looked on line and found this cottage.
It was very quiet and well maintained – It was fully stocked with everything you needed.
Except towels and Food (which we knew)
Traverse City, Leelanau Peninsula and the Old Mission Peninsula were close by.
So if you’re going for wine tasting or shopping or just need to get-a-way, this is a great place-
Thank You for allowing us to rent your Cottage.

MEMORIES GALORE FOR OUR FAMILY!

  • 4 of 5
We spent a lovely time in this Traverse City Area cottage. We took advantage of various entertainment opportunities in the area, along with taking many walks, runs, etc. on the peninsula. The neighbors were friendly & welcoming in the surrounding homes that were lived in, during our stay. It was a peaceful area & provided us a great place to get away & relax. The owners checked with us early in our stay to see if we had questions, concerns, needs. We appreciated their checking with us. We visited Sleders, Boone's & the Traverse City Pie Co. for several of our meals, along with local fast food locations, in addition to using the firepit for hobo pies & somemores. The cottage was well supplied in the kitchen area for our needs for additional meals that we prepared.

ANNUAL FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Spent another fantastic week at this rental. The house is extremely clean and well maintained. The home has a well equipped kitchen and it's nice to only have to bring food and bath towels. The neighborhood is great for walking and bike riding. We had no issues with the home and would definately come back for another visit. The fishing is great for sunfish and seems to be a fairly calm lake withbot a lot of boaters or jet skiers. The home is also convenient for traveling to amenities, sightseeing, and entertainment opportunities in nearby Traverse City area.

POOR VALUE FOR THE MONEY -- RENT ELSEWHERE

  • 1 of 5
Having read prior reviews, I wonder if we stayed at the same rental as the other reviewers. The cottage is extremely dark and the laundry area reeks of dog. Air conditioning does not work in one of the upper bedrooms, which we discovered on a 95-degree day. The shower heads in the showers release almost no water. There are cantilevered balconies that are fastened to the cottage in a structurally unsafe way. We were already disappointed with our stay, when we received the shocking news that the owners had confiscated our entire security deposit. Although we had failed to empty bathroom wastebaskets and did not vacuum the floor before leaving (which we assumed were included in the rate), there were certainly no major issues with how we left the rental. The owner proceeded to accuse us of stealing a chair cushion and said she suspected we were lying about the number of guests staying there (which was 2 adults and 2 children). I am left feeling not only like I did not receive good value for our money, but that I have been personally attacked. If you prefer to be "nickle and dimed" for a dingy rental, you may want to try this place. The week prior we stayed at a bright, spacious cottage 3 miles from this cottage and with similar water access. It was the same price, the air conditioning worked, and we were given no hassle about the condition of our move-out. You can do a lot better for the price without losing money for forgetting to empty the wastebaskets upon leaving

Owner's Response: Unfortunately, cleaning up after this group involved a lot more than emptying a few wastebaskets! It would appear they actually had a large house party with many more guests than claimed on their rental agreement (two adults, one child), and perhaps did not have time for a proper cleanup. They used all six beds and left messes throughout the house including 8 ½ bags of trash. A throw pillow showed up missing and was never found. Our housekeeping crew struggled to get the place in shape for the next rental, and we were understandably charged extra for the additional time and effort. Fortunately there was no permanent damage to the house. We have rarely had to make a claim on any guest's deposit but unfortunately it was necessary in this case to cover our costs.
Interestingly, the reviewer’s comments are very much at odds with the conversation we had with her husband shortly after they checked in. At that time he was very pleased with the house and even complimented us on its upkeep. Nor did they report any problems during their stay. The negative remarks only occurred after the reviewer learned her security deposit would be applied to cleaning costs.
We have enjoyed sharing our vacation home with other families and groups who appreciate it and care for it as we do, so this experience was disappointing for all involved. Perhaps we have been fortunate this type of thing has not occurred before. Regardless, we are still committed to providing clean, safe, and enjoyable accommodations for our guests, as indicated by the excellent reviews we have received in the past. Nothing has changed; it is the same well-built cottage it has always been, with all systems in safe, working condition. Over-sized windows and doors provide lots of daylight, with blinds for privacy as needed. We are not aware of any strange odors, either, which may have been due to all the trash this group left behind. Thanks so much for your business over the years, and we look forward to many more!
Sincerely, Lisa and Steve
