SECLUDED COTTAGE ON THE BOARDMAN RIVER W/ HOT TUB, FIREPLACE, & INTERNET

Traverse City Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Private Cottage in Pristine Setting, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 8)

Situated about one half mile off of the main road on a 12 acre parcel of land is River Bend Cottage - your home away from home. Nestled between the river and the base of the hills in the Boardman River Valley, this cozy cottage is located in as Feng Shui and pristine a place as it gets. Let the sounds of the nearby streams carry your stress away. Feel the rejuvenating energy that only nature can provide, and the peace that comes with being completely surrounded by state forest. When you are ready to venture into downtown Traverse City, it's a leisurely 10-15 minute drive.

The location was beautiful and the accommodations were very comfortable. There is a nice fire pit with seating on site and brook trout in the stream. The owner's were very nice and we would not hesitate to stay again.

Ideal home and surroundings

We just returned home from our family vacation at the River Bend Cottage (hardly a cottage -- it's a beautiful home). This place far exceeded our expectations and the photos above don't begin to show the true beauty of the house and its surroundings. There were 6 of us: my husband and I, my son, his wife, a 4 1/2 year old, and a 16-month old baby. There was so much room in this house that we were able to spread out with a lot of room to spare. The beds and bedding were high quality and very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped, with beautiful appliances, lots of dishes, pots and pans, every appliance you could think of, and even a crockpot! One of my favorite parts of the day was relaxing outside on the deck which overlooked the Boardman River. The brook/creek on the side of the home had several places where there were benches and a gazebo so we could sit and read while listening to the water (very tranquil). There were swings for the children and a firepit which we enjoyed several times. The firepit area has very nice chairs and benches with backs on them, some rocking chairs -- all in all, it's the nicest firepit area I've ever seen. It even has a picnic table close to it for all of those supplies that you need for a weiner roast. Wayne was so patient and helpful with all of our questions before reserving the house. And upon our arrival, Evan was very helpful in showing us around the house and helping us with kayak tips. He even brought us a bottle of wine and 2 packages of coffee...a very nice welcome indeed! We have rented a lot of vrbo homes and this was, by far, the best! Thank you Wayne and Evan for sharing your lovely home with us. We look forward to another vacation at your home with our entire family!!

Our family ranged in age from 1 to 60 and we all could not have had a better time! This cottage offers all you could ask for from serenity to hotly contested corn hole by the bon fire! Tubing and kayaking is a must on the pristine Boardman River. Our family enjoyed the end of the Cherry Festival, fire works, childrens museum, history museum with the Lego corner, wine tasting, Sand Dunes, wonderful area dining, Pirates Cove Adventures - all within minutes of this secluded cottage. Evan & Wayne are wonderful hosts. We look forward to repeating this vacation!
