About Richard

My family absolutely loves the outdoors and we also live on the Boardman River down stream. We enjoy kayaking, gardening, hiking, and bird watching. We take our two dogs for long hikes on the state land while looking for new exciting finds that the woods have to offer. We are also excited to share this with others who share our passion for the outdoors. This cottage is a unique place!

Richard purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Richard chose Traverse City

I purchased this property quite honestly because I have been here most of my life and I have found it to be in one of the best locations in the area. I love the outdoors but like the fact that I can be in Traverse City quickly with a beautiful drive to get there. The wildlife, fresh air, and of course the Boardman river being steps away, well you just can't beat it. I see all types of birds , deer, fox, partridge, well it goes on and on. Truly it has all the flavor of the now well known 'Pure Michigan.' And how about the Fall Colors

What makes this cottage unique

Wildlife including: deer, turkeys, partridge, rabbits, bobcats, and ducks. Birdwatching: Piliated woodpeckers, eagles, hawks, owls, hummingbirds, and orioles. Hiking, fourwheeling, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, cross country skiing. Beautiful view of river. Kayaking, tubing, fishing, and swimming. And lets not forget the fall colors! Also we have the Chery festival in July, the Horse show in July, and the Film festival after that!

River Cottage

  • 5 of 5
This was a nice weekend getaway for us. The cabin is in a nice location, gives you that feeling of being secluded and alone even though you do have neighbors close by. The cabin was clean and suited our needs perfectly. The weather didn't cooperate with us at all that entire weekend which kept us indoors more so than we had planned, making it hard to enjoy the beautiful outdoors. Probably the best for us though as we have a very active 2yr old. We would definitely would like to go back, maybe when our little one is alittle bigger and we don't have to worry so much about him finding his way into the river!

Boardman River Cottage

Four longtime friends recently retired and decided to celebrate with a girls' color-tour getaway. Beautiful location with nice amenities like fireplace, firepit, and hot tub. It's only a 20-minute drive to downtown Traverse City, so we also visited the Leelanau and Old Mission peninsulas. Great three days! Just make sure to get good directions to the cottage in advance--it's on a private road and doesn't show up on mapping apps.

Absolutely Beautiful

  • 5 of 5
This was our second trip to Richard's property and it will definitely not be our last. Richard could not be a more gracious host to his guests. He personally welcomed us back to his rental and had fresh vegetables in the refrigerator waiting for us as well. The property is in great condition and we wanted for nothing! Richard also offers to transport renters up river and drop them off with his kayaks if they desire to kayak the Boardman River. The tranquility and isolation of this property are its greatest features. I cannot recommend this property enough to anyone wishing to get away from the hustle bustle of daily live and get back to nature. We will hopefully return next summer for a longer duration. Thanks Richard!!

My girlfriends and I stayed at this wonderful location at the end of September, can not get over the view! It was beautiful seeing the Boardman River flow through the property. Lots of beautiful trees and landscaping. The cottage itself was super cute and quaint, very cozy and clean! We will definitely stay again for another girl's weekend! We met Richard, the owner and he was such a nice guy and made us feel welcomed right away!

Beautiful spot on the river with excellent accomodations!!

  • 5 of 5
I wanted the kids to have the cottage/cabin vacation that I knew as a child. This cottage did not disappoint! It was exactly what I had hoped for. We could hear the river as we drifted off to sleep after a day of kayaking, swimming, fishing, and enjoying the hot tub. We were able to grill on the deck, have bonfires in the fire pit, explore the trails, relax in the hammock and play board games or watch movies at night. You could not ask for a more gracious host than Richard. He gladly transported us and the kayaks to a launch spot. He brought us fish that had been caught in Grand Traverse bay that morning. The locations is great because it is secluded but only a few minutes from Traverse City. The Mayfield General Store has just about anything you might need and is only a couple of miles away. The cottage was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. The appliances were in great condition...we could throw in a load of laundry, wash the dishes in a dishwasher, microwave popcorn etc. The pictures do not do this cabin justice! See it for yourself...you will not regret it!

Great secluded get-a-way.

After a very stressful few months workwise my husband and I were ready for a place to relax. This wonderful cottage fit the bill. Secluded and quiet except for the mesmerizing sound of the river flowing by us as we sat on the deck. Enjoyed the hot tub, kayaking the beautiful Boardman River and exploring the Traverse City area. We highly recommend this cottage.
