We bought this lovely home as a vacation property to get away from it all and we love it. As soon as we pull into the driveway we just start loosening up. It is very difficult to be tense in this woodel lakefront in Traverse City. We especially love the wildlife lakefront where birds, fish, turtles and otters abound. Its great to take a boatride and just cruise around the lake and jump in at the swimming island.
In a word... privacy.
