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.

We had a chance to take a multi-generational vacation (grandparents, parents, crazy grandboys) and chose Traverse City as a destination. Finding this "cabin" just made the entire week perfect. The setting is incredible with different views from every direction on the property. The river is right there begging visitors to either relax and watch it pass by or use the kayaks and explore each turn. There is a fabulous creek running alongside the house with a soothing waterfall, the gazebo, woods, and amazing firepit waiting for a family to enjoy a beverage or two while making s'mores.
The owner, Wayne, was wonderful to deal with. Evan made sure we were welcomed, comfortable and was just so informative about everything we could do in the area to make the most of our time in the Traverse City. He could not have been more responsive or accommodating.
The house offered room for all of us to be together or spread out. The decks, screen room, two living rooms & a huge hot tub room along with 4 bedrooms and 3 baths with a completely stocked kitchen made this cabin feel like a dream come true. Did I mention the home also has 2 washers and 2 dryers!?!
We had the best time hitting all the tourist type attractions in the area (lighthouse, stacking rocks, beaches, picnics, wineries, insane asylum shopping, Lucky Jack's Lazer tag and arcade, Sleeping Bear Dunes, kayaking the Boardman, tubing the Platte, shopping downtown, eating at the Mackinaw Brewing Company, Bubba's and the The Grand Traverse Pie Co., Tall Ship Sail, hiking in the woods, and more). All of this was made even better because we could come back home to this fabulous house.
Make a memory here!

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic stay at the River Bend cottage. The home was gorgeous and very well-maintained, and the owners were so friendly and helpful. We enjoyed renting the kayaks and explored the Boardman River nearly every day. We have rented many homes over the years, but this was by far the nicest, both in setting and in quality of the home. Father and son owners were great communicators. Evan went over and above offering to help. Would love to return! Highly recommend!

Absolutely Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5
Fantastic place!! We stayed here for a family vacation for a week. The house and property are wonderful. The location perfect!! The owner/management were terrific and quick to respond with our thousands of questions about the area and property during our stay.

The house was lovely, and exactly as described. Very comfortable and spacious.

Wooded area and river great for exploring for kids and adults alike. Fire pit area was perfect for the evening bonfires and marshmallow roasting. We had 7 kids (ages 3-12) who had a wonderful time playing outside on the property all week. They couldn't wait to get out and explore everyday.

We hope to stay at the property again. I would highly recommend it!!

Great Vacation Spot!!

  • 5 of 5
My family spent 5 days at the River Bend Cottage and it was everything we expected and more. The house was prepared for our arrival and was clean. We were given plenty of peace and quiet. It is a good fishing spot and on a clear night you can see the big dipper. It is not far from TC and we took the kids into town for a bit. The decor of the home is awesome and they made sure you were taken care of. Definitely want to go back :)
