Northern Michigan House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

One-hundred foot, private, sandy beach, known as Bowers Harbor, overlooking Grand Traverse Bay. Private, wooded lot.

Two bedroom cottage, 1.5 bathrooms. House has hardwood floors throughout. Decorated with Tribal rugs and owners art collection. Has an "at home" ambiance the minute you arrive. 24' X 26' attached wood deck equipped with picnic table, gas grill, and patio table and furniture.

Beach has beach furniture for sunning and firepit for those oh so gorgeous nights on the Bay. Sit and listen to the waves slapped against the shore as you sit back and RELAX! 6' X 6' floating raft and rowboat onsite for your use.

We are only 10 miles from Traverse City where you can enjoy nightlife, shopping, casino life, and general tourism. We have several wineries within 5 miles of the cottage. Grocery store and gas station within 1 mile. Boat launching available close by at Bowers Harbor Landing. You can moor your boat directly in front of the cottage.

Why The Owner chose Northern Michigan

Have owned the property since about 1975. Built the home in the 1980's. Updated a few years later.

What makes this house unique

Enjoy just sitting on the deck with a glass of wine and snacks. Use the burning pit at the beach when the children come.

Sandy Beachfront Cottage at Bowers Harbor, Grand Traverse Bay
average rating of 3.0 based on 1 reviews

A little disappointing

  • 3 of 5

Beautiful beach but cluttered with pier ( not out), diving platform (on the beach), boat ( (upside -down on the beach). This property was not ready for receiving guests. Beds were not made and you are expected to change beds before departing. Kitchen was fully equipped. It would be very difficult to recommend for a group of 8 unless there were 6 small children in the family.
