Overview

Forest Lakes Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bdrm, 1 Bath, Lake Front/View Cottage - Minutes from Downtown Traverse City

About 7 miles south of Traverse City south just off Garfield Road and just north of Kingsley. On the south end Arbutus Lake. Other cottages are available so please call or email us - check out our other property #140019 on HomeAway.

This property was remodeled in 2009 and now has many comforts of home. It accommodates 4 to 6 people. The lake property has 400 ft. of private beach with a sandy bottom, two rafts and buoys, four 30-ft docks, children's playground, volleyball, basketball, horseshoes, barbecue gas grills and fire pits.

If you are boating and/or fishing, the resort features a large boat house with private secured lockers, a screened-in fish-cleaning house with running water and a boat launch. Pontoon boat rental is available for an additional fee.

This is also a great location if you are planning to take a fall color tour so don't limit yourself just to summer!

Small pets are considered and renters are asked to clean up after them. The resort is not handicap accessible.

The heated vacation cottage has a newer interior, full kitchen with microwave, dishes, pots and pans, coffee maker and toaster. Bed linens and towels are not provided, however bedspreads, pillows and blankets are in the cottage.

The resort and cottage is secluded and quiet, located on wooded Arbutus Lake. Water recreation includes swimming, trophy fishing (small and large mouth bass, blue gill, perch, pike and crappie), boating and water-skiing. Nearby recreation includes golf, tennis, hiking, bicycling, horseback riding and shopping.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for letting us rent your beautiful cottage, the location

was amazing and more than I expected. We really had a great time, I did go

up and take a peak at your other property and would probably be interested

in renting that one next time just because of the size difference of the

living room, bathroom, but overall we had such a great time and I could

tell you guys put alot of love and caring into your properties, thanks

again!

Our family loves this place! It's welcoming, comfortable, and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been staying at this cottage now for the past 5 years continuing the family tradition. As soon as the annual trip is over we are already looking to book for the next year. My wife has been coming to Pineview Resort annually since she was a baby. This cottage is an accommodating, comfortable, relaxing place to stay. We have never had any issues with our reservations and the owners are great! Screened in front porch, wifi, cable, fire pit, grill, and the cottage is always clean upon arrival. Being right across from the beach makes it an ideal spot for the kids and family. Really can't say enough good things about this place! Looking forward to our trip next year!

Great location for fishermen or families

Great location, clean, and updated

  • 4 of 5

We had an amazing experience both with the owners and the property itself, right on the beach which was great for our kids, nice resort with small playground and rowboat. Great location just 10 minutes from downtown Traverse City. The only thing I think I could say at all about this property is possibly a little larger of a couch for the living room, but overall a wonderful experience and we will definitely be back, thank you so much!

Great cottage for a family vacation

  • 4 of 5

Great location, great property. We loved the beach across the street and how quick it was to get to lake Michigan. The property was clean and cozy. We enjoyed motoring around the chain of 5 lakes, swimming and taking walks in the quiet neighborhood.

Exactly what we were looking for!

  • 4 of 5

Not too far from downtown and great view. We came up for fall colors so or stay at the cabin was basically to shower, sleep and eat. Three things we wished we would have brought-hand towels and salt and pepper! This is a pet friendly place and I am allergic to dogs. The sofa could have been cleaned better as I was not able to sit on it from the dog hair trapped behind it. But I can see how that can be missed, I have furr babies myself. Overall we enjoyed our stay. Thanks!

Quiet and Relaxing, but close to T.C.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at the cottage! It was a very nice and clean property, perfect for a family of 4 such as ourselves. We really enjoyed having coffee on the sun porch in the mornings while the kids watched TV inside. Thanks again!
