Lakefront Home On Lake Ann 3 Bedroom, 1.5 bath, sleeps 6-8 Perfect Location!!
The 'GotAway Lodge' on Lake Ann is the place to come to create the memories of a lifetime. The Lodge is a 3rd generation family owned home that sits on 180 feet of private frontage. Conveniently tucked on the NW edge of Lake Ann where the lake is quiet, the fishing is superb, yet you are close to all the action that the area has to offer. The Lodge sleeps 6-8 comfortably, has 3 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, a spacious open great room featuring vaulted ceilings and massive windows--giving you a spectacular southern view to the lake (35 ft away btw) providing you with breathtaking sunrises, sunsets, and ample sun throughout the day for those working on their tan. The Lodge comes with a fully equipped kitchen, a/c, cable and WiFi for those rainy days.
Besides having some of the best inland lake fishing around, Lake Ann is also the perfect size to enjoy tubing, water skiing, wake boarding...or relaxing with a good book. Bring your own boat and dock it at your own personal marina, or enjoy the complimentary use of the paddle and rowboat provided. With its warm and clean water, wading right from shore is also a great option. Once off the lake, enjoy the inviting fire pit and patio directly on the lake…perfect for enjoying your burgers n brats off the Lodge’s grill or roasting marshmallows while telling fish stories that are best told at a place like this.
The Village of Lake Ann is a ½ mile stroll away where you can enjoy dining at the local restaurants or stock up on groceries, beverages for the cooler, and fishing gear at the Lake Ann Grocery & Hardware. Explore the Pier Marquette State Forest’s trails and scenery adjacent to the west side of the Lake, fish the Platte River, rent a canoe and float the Crystal River or bring your golf clubs to hit one of the numerous area golf courses All of these are within minutes of the lodge.
The Lodge’s ideal Northern Michigan location is perfect for those who want to get out and explore...It’s within 15 minutes of The Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore-recognized recently as the nation’s number #1 beautiful places to visit By 'Good Morning America'. Hike the Sleeping Bear Dunes, walk the Lake Michigan coastline, or explore the endless miles of scenic trails in the area. Catch a burger at BooneDocks in Glen Arbor, or head 19 miles north to Leland's Fishtown to check out the shopping and catch a ferry to the Manitou Islands. In addition the Lodge is only 15 minutes from the excitement of Traverse City's annual Cherry Festival, fine dining and wineries of Old Mission Peninsula, and minutes from the world renowned Interlochen Center for the Art's to catch a concert featuring some of the biggest names in the industry.

Arrived close to sunset and everything was exactly as described. I enjoyed sitting on the peer gazing through the crystal clear water watching the fish swim. The cottage was clean and well organized. It was wonderful to wake up to the sunrise and the beautiful lake. The area is quaint and delightfully friend. A perfect place to get away with friends.
We were so excited to go. But cottage was not clean when we arrived. Tons of spiders, in fact I got bit 3 times by them. Hot tub was filthy and not useable. No beach area, and bottom was not only mucky I sank in one spot up to my knee. No firewood provided. Dock was not very sturdy. Patio door screen was taped. Kitchen window had no screen. No washer or dryer, no bath tub. So not really a full bath and a half. The layout was very nice and open. Every time it rained the walkway to the front door filled with mud. The kitchen had a beautiful set of dishes but pans were in bad shape and there was one bowl for cooking. AC was on the floor in the closet but there were plenty of fans so we were ok. Curtains provided little to no protection or privacy. I was dying to move bedroom furniture around so I wouldn't get the light in my eyes & have some privacy too. We picked up an entire grocery bag full of dog poo when we first arrived. The fire pit area was amazing. With a little more care to detail it would have been a more pleasant stay. Very disappointed because we have family in the area & are looking for a place to use on a repeat basis. I'd be willing to give it another try knowing what to expect so I could be prepared. Sadly I can only rate three stars. The landlord seemed sincere and willing to please so I hope these issues are addressed. Even with mucky bottom the lake was beautiful and we still enjoyed it.
Excellent location 15-20 minutes from Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes Park and Traverse City. Bonfires at night by the lake were great. Hear the Loons on the lake every night while sitting by the fire. Fish right off the end of the dock.
