My husband Dan and I have been cottaging on Bass Lake since 1969. It has been our dream to share our little piece of heaven with others for years. Our dream has finally become a reality. We hope you enjoy our lakeside retreat and the surrounding Traverse City area as much as we have over the years. Welcome.

Nancy Brenneman purchased this cottage in 2007

It chose us, family memories, growing up as a teachers kid, spending our summers, sunning, boating, and swimming. When the opportunity came up, it was just a natural fit.

You are 10 minutes from downtown Traverse, yet you may think its Northern Canada by the lake views. The nature, deer, wild life, and fishing are awesome. Boat launch nearby, and dock on property. Quiet and relaxing and fun for the kids.

TRAVERSE CITY LAKE FRONT COTTAGE ON BASS LAKE

  • 5 of 5
Adorable, immaculate cottage. Weather was miserable (cloudy/rain), but proximity to good dining, and the comfort of this dear little cabin on the lake was outstanding. Would rent it again in a heart beat!

GREAT LAKE SIDE LOCATION

  • 4 of 5
The cabin accommodation was ideal for for my family of four. The kids loved the bunk beds although my two year old would struggle to get in the bottom bunk had she been any older. There was also a fan right above the bunks which we didn't use for safety reasons. The DVD player and wireless Internet was available on demand. The cabin was well equipped, clean, and cool with the ceiling fans. The outside of the accommodation was the best. Such a great deck area. We had all our meals and spent every evening out there. The beach was great, nice and shallow for the kids to jump and paddle. The location was perfect to allow us to explore the area. A great vacation.

WHAT WE NEEDED!

  • 5 of 5
My husband is a "staycation" fan, while I love the beach, so this was the perfect cabin for us! The weather was great! Not too hot, but plenty of sun. The cabin had all the amenities that we needed for the week. I loved that there was even paper products and TP already there! The lake was quiet and our neighbors were friendly. Boone's Long Lake Inn and Moomers are minutes from the cabin; plus downtown Traverse City is a short drive away. We also drove a bit further to Sleeping Bear (an easy drive). We invited a couple over for a night and they wanted to stay for the rest of the week!

If staying with your family (more than 2-3 people): the bedrooms are small, but there is plenty of space in the living area (hopefully, you'll be outside most of the day!).

BEAUTIFUL, RELAXING AND PIECEFUL

  • 5 of 5
If you just want to unwind and relax from the crazy hectic world we live in now a days. This is the place to be.
You can just have a cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate or what ever you prefer and you are looking at Bass Lake. What a view!! Unspeakable!
You don't hear the traffic or the car alarms going off like you would when you are in the city. Nothing but NATURE you will hear.
The cabin is very cozy. Very comfortable. Very roomy. You can have all the windows open for that fresh air. Also, it's safe enough that you do not have to lock your doors.
The owners were very helpful. They told us about and they had brouchers of Traverse City (great idea) and other places. The stores and restuarants (Boones Long Lake Inn).
I would 100% recommend this place to anyone who wants a little piece of quiet.
Love it. Will be returning next year around the same time. ;)

GREAT PLACE FOR KIDS AND AS A BASE FOR EXPLORING THE AREA.

  • 5 of 5
We have 3 children (7,4,3) and they absolutely loved the beach. The cottage is very well appointed and the views from the deck and beach are great. This property is tucked away from the road and we never felt the need to lock the doors even when we were out exploring. There are several neighboring cottages and everyone was really pleasant and friendly.

Even on the hottest day the ceiling fans did a great job of keeping the cottage cool. Next time we head to Traverse City we will definately check availability. If you have kids bring some cat treats as Rudy, the owners cat, was a favorite visitor of our children. My daughter still speaks of Rudy weeks later.

GREAT TIME

  • 5 of 5
My wife and two small children spent a week at this cottage. It was recently renovated and well decorated. It is 25yds off the lake, and has a soft beach from the deck to the water. The cottage itself is probably 800sq ft, but with the large deck and outdoor space it feels much larger.

The lake is relatively shallow, so it was warmer than other surrounding lakes. Very comfortable to swim in. It is also a pretty good lake to fish with alot of largemouth bass and large bluegill. They had some sand toys and rafts at the cottage to use in the lake also.

The property was very clean and well maintained, and the owners stay in a cabin next door so they are available to answer any questions.

The road leading to the cabin is dirt/sand/gravel so it was a little rough, but the owners were working on repairing some low spots.

The deck and beach were our favorite part of this cabin. As well as its close proximity to Traverse City but north woods feel.

Thank you Dan and Nancy for a great trip.
