This waterfront, vacation home comes with all the amenities: two kitchens (upstairs and down), beautiful living room, cable TV, large deck, and a dining room with a water view. Its location at the end of the road ensures a measure of solitude and quiet.
The village of Lake Ann is within walking distance with two grocery stores, post office, church, and Town Hall. There are many things to do within an easy drive. Summer concerts at Interlochen Arts Academy, eight miles south and east. The Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes and National Park are 20 minutes west, Leland (Fish Town) is 25 miles north, and Traverse City is only twelve miles east. Great swimming and fishing!
There are two bedrooms upstairs, and one bedroom and sleeper sofa in fully-furnished, walk-out basement. There is a kitchen downstairs. Two couples could rent and have a reasonable amount of autonomy up and down, as there is a full bath both up and down.
We have stayed at this Lake Ann home twice and are looking forward to our third visit. The home has plenty of room and is clean and comfortable. It has a very "homey" feel. The kitchen is well equipped. It also has a large deck overlooking the lake, great for having a cup of coffee in the morning or glass of wine or a soft drink in the evening. Bryan Lake is small, but good for taking the rowboat out and enjoying some relaxing fishing. Also, because the lake is small, the noise is minimal. The owners are very responsive to any need you might have. The location is also good, as it is not unreasonably far to Traverse City or Lake Michigan and provides easy access up into the Leelanau Peninsula, which is one of our favorite places to visit. The home is also close to Lost Lakes Pathway, which has over six miles of moderate hiking or mountain biking trails, and Interlochen and Mistwood golf courses. We stayed off-season, in September. We would recommend this property to a friend or relative.
I am a simulation engineer and work out of my home. My wife is a teacher. We have two married children, and one lovely grand-daughter.
This is home turf. My wife and I grew up in the Traverse Area. We love the north land, and hope to retire up here eventually.
