Traverse City Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, full size futon in living room, 1bath/stand up shower, sleeps 7

Come and stay at the freshly updated West Wind Resort 'Suite Cherry' lakeside cottage. This lakeside resort has 11 cottages with 400' of water frontage. Inside this quaint, cozy retreat, we've updated it with ceramic tiled kitchen and bathroom floors, two new beds (2013), Dish Satellite TV (2013), along with a burst of fresh colors that will brighten your stay. You can let your kids play on the large playground and run safely throughout the resort property without worrying about busy streets. You can take them down to the sandy beach where all of you will enjoy the warm Michigan sun. In 2015, our mini-harbor was reconstructed with a wider opening and seawall with a personal boat slip. There are many watercraft rental businesses in the area that will deliver to the lake. Dad will want to take the kids out on this great fishing lake to catch walleye, bass, and pan fish, and the moms can slip away to take in the wonderful boutiques and shops in Sutton's Bay and Traverse City.

Charming and relaxing always a cool breeze

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time, the lake is beautiful and the stay was so relaxing. Upon arriving the cottage was so charming, our stay was perfect. There was nothing we had to run out and get, they thought of everything you will need for your stay to be convenient. Will love to stay again soon.

Beautiful views of lake leelanau

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our stay. The cottage was very cute and clean! It was the perfect place for a girls weekend but will also be great for a small family. There is a large playset on the property, beautiful views, and nice fire pit by the water. Conveniently located between Sutton Bay and Traverse City.

A great little getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for the weekend and had a great time even though the weather was less than perfect. The cabin is very clean with beautiful views. With a 5 month old and a 3 year old this was so much easier than staying in a hotel. We will definitely come back and stay. Thanks Barkers for the great weekend away!

You will never tire of the more than 27 golf courses in the area, and West Grand Traverse Bay offers more water-sports such as sailing the Tall Ship, afternoon catamaran rides, para sailing and jet ski rentals. Take a drive out to Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore and don't miss the scenic Pierce Stocking Drive with outstanding views of Lake Michigan Hike throughout many of the trails in Sleeping Bear or take the kids to the 110 foot dune climb. Some of the finest restaurants in all of Michigan are located in this area, ranging from casual family to fine dining. If malls are your thing, Cherryland Mall and several large retailers have moved into southwestern Traverse City.

This is a great location to use as a base to enter the Walleye Tournament here in May, or go to nearby Suttons Bay for their Art Fair or Jazz Festival in the summer. The Traverse City 'Cherry Festival' is one of the areas hottest places to be in July. With featured music groups and a carnival for the kids.

Ski: Contact us for winter ski rates.
