My husband Dan & I are both insurance agents. We have 2 teenagers and we love to travel.
The Owner purchased this cottage in 1999
This property has been in my family for generations. My grandparents operated a small resort with efficiency cottages in the 1950's and 1960's. This is the last remaining cottage of their resort.
Our little lake is quiet and peaceful yet only 15 minutes to Traverse City and 20 minutes to Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes
My husband and I spent the week here and it was a thoroughly wonderful vacation. Jeanine and Dan greeted us when we arrived and then left us to enjoy the week. The cottage was very clean, updated and tastefully decorated. We enjoyed our coffee each morning on the deck or sunporch. The view from both is amazing! It was peaceful, quiet, and very relaxing. We purchased firewood locally and enjoyed the firepit in the evenings. We went out in the rowboat some and in the kayaks one evening...there's just something about being on the water that just brings peace to the soul. I would highly recommend this cottage...we will certainly be returning!
The cottage was very clean, and quite. The owners were very helpful. The listing described cable TV, which they changed to satellite TV. We could not watch local channels, we had to find the movies that you didn't have to pay for. My husband is a TV sort of guy at night and was disappointed in that. We also were looking forward to fishing off the dock, but he couldn't put the dock in this year because the water was to high. So it listed dock but didn't get one. So a few things were disappointing.Also not a place for little ones to play in the water. So we took our grandson to the local park for water play.
It was very cute and very clean, and the owners were very nice and helpful in answering questions. We did like that it was very quite and peaceful. I believe we probably would have gone back, as we were close to our daughter and her family, but we are fishermen and missed the dock and row boat. Their boat was really only for one person (a dingy) and the TV was disappointing. Lake Ann is a quite and very cute town. The new restaurant in town has great food. If your not a fisherman or don't mind not getting local channels then this is the place for you. Like I said it is clean and cute and quite, and other places to see are close. We thank you for our stay and the week of weather could not of been any more beautiful. Thank you.
Thank you for the wonderful weekend. We loved the quiet, relaxing retreat. My husband and I took a moonlight outing on your boat...it was beautiful! We also were able to have a bond fire and enjoy the night sounds :) One night we heard a loon off in the distance. What a blessing it was to have that time together, thank you!
Perfect, cozy and comfortable. I loved every minute of my week in this beautiful, little cottage. Just what I needed for the relaxation and solitude I was seeking. On a private, small lake; wonderful neighbors if you needed anything/help...very frinedly but, unintrusive. Except for a very welcomed greeting by a neighbor 's beautiful lab named Pearl and his master, I was left completely on my own. You won't believe this is a "tourist spot". You just feel it's a well kept secret for those who are trusted with the unwritten rules which go with a private lake; no motor rule (written) for boats; one fish reserved for you (the rest were obviously reserved for my neighbors...all of the same family btw :-); your own little row boat and a well respected 'quiet rule' (I felt guity just sneezing outdoors). Hated to leave; fell in love with the cottage and all the efforts made to insure I had a memorable time. Thank you J and D! DC
This property provided our family with a relaxing retreat in the Northwest region of Michigan. The property was well maintained and comfortable.The recent upgrades and new paint were appreciated. We enjoyed kayaking, fishing and swimming on the lake. The location was great for our visits to the Cherry Festival in Traverse City and the Sleeping Bear / Glen Lake area. Thanks for allowing us to share your cottage treasure.
