We searched for the perfect summer home in northern Michigan for over 10 years; Lake Michigan and Little Traverse Bay are treasures. We discovered Bay View several years ago and each of us fell in love with the community for a wide variety of reasons. The multigenerational, family-friendly community is a step back in time, were children can roam safely on their bikes, and the beautiful music of practicing musicians can be heard throughout the campus. This cottage is a rare find - true Victorian splendor with all the updates and amenities. It is our pleasure to share it with you.

Charlene purchased this cottage in 2011

We love the cool evenings and sunny afternoons in northern Michigan. It has every outdoor sport and beautiful vistas. Within 30 minutes we can be in Macinaw City ready to hop a boat to that beautiful Island, touring Fort Michimilimacinaw or traversing the Macinaw Bridge - the 5-mile suspension bridge connecting the Michigan penninsulas. Or we can head to several other quaint towns by boat, bicycle or on foot. The views in every direction are beautiful, but the sunsets over Lake Michigan sing to us. We've known for decades that this is where we want to retire. But we couldn't wait until retirement to enjoy this beautiful part of the country and its people.

CLASSY VICTORIAN

  • 5 of 5
This property was clean and very well maintained. The Victoria neighborhood gives you a sense that you're in Martha's Vineyard. We had three couples and there was plenty of room for all of us the accommodations were accurately described. The only downside is we would've liked to have stayed longer

GREAT LOCATION/WONDERFUL HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed here for a week with 3 other couples and all thoroughly enjoyed the house-- great kitchen-- we cooked and ate in most of the time. Only few minutes drive to Petoskey.
Owners extremely easy to deal with. Would certainly return if opportunity presents .

BEAUTIFUL VACATION HOME!

  • 5 of 5
As a Michigan native now living in Florida, I wanted my children and husband to experience summer in Northern Michigan. This house was perfect! The home and neighborhood were very "kid friendly". My children enjoyed sleeping in the bunk room and walking to the playground. There were plenty of bedrooms for grandparents and other relatives to visit. Traveling with small children was made easier with the dishwasher and washer and dryer. The owners are extremely accomodating and easy to work with.

SUMMER RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
We spent a wonderful week in this beautiful home. Coming from California, we felt we had stepped in to another world of friendly neighbors and big, well loved family homes. The great roomy kitchen was well equipped and where we watched the incredible weather displays. The photos gave a very good idea of what to expect, but the reality was much better than pictured. Everything was immaculate! The location of this home allowed us to hear the music conservatory students practising throughout the day, an added bonus. We were very comfortable and the owners were friendly,responsive and helpful, offering very good recommendations for sightseeing and local information.
We spent our days kayaking, visiting Sleeping Bear Dunes, Mackinac Island, and Walloon Lake. Oh yes and eating cherry pie.
I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone for a family get away or reunion as we did. We felt so "at home" and thankful that our hosts are willing to share their lovely "cottage"!

CHARMING AND COMFORTABLE COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
Our extended family stayed at this cottage to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday and it was spectacular. The cottage offers a remarkable kitchen, cute nooks to relax in, wonderful porches, and lots of space for sleeping. Each room is decorated beautifully and yet is so livable. It is a stones throw from the Terrace Inn (in case you don't like to cook), is near the audiorium at Bay View for many entertainment options, close to the administration building for the movies and so close to many of the wide range of Bay View offerings. It is a short walk to the beach and near Petoskey for shopping pleasures. I can't say enough about our terrific stay at this spectacular cottage! Thanks for making it available for others to enjoy.
