This spacious, well-maintained vacation home has everything you need for a carefree, peaceful retreat or family getaway! It is conveniently located 15 minutes from Traverse City on Duck Lake Peninsula - a beautiful wooded community that offers easy access to Traverse City's many attractions, plus the peace and quiet of an island neighborhood surrounded by nature and lake views. No crowds, traffic, or city lights. Duck Lake is a beautiful 1900-acre lake with a sandy bottom, excellent for all kinds of watersports as well as fishing. A lake access area is located across the street from the cottage for swimming and lakeside picnics. A private boat launch is located about 1/2 mile from the cottage. Quiet, shady streets are ideal for running, biking, or a leisurely sunrise or sunset stroll.
The Peninsula is well maintained by a wonderful neighborhood association that maintains 5 lake accesses, the boat launch, and our very own Central Park – a large wooded recreation area in the center of the neighborhood, with playground, basketball court, volleyball, tennis court, and covered/lighted pavilion. For beach enthusiasts, Lake Michigan and Sleeping Bear Dunes Lakeshore are only 28 miles away.
Cook up a feast for your group in our fully-equipped kitchen or outdoors on the gas grill. Enjoy a backyard campfire, or relax by the fireplace while watching your favorite movie or sporting event on the large flat screen TV. Large windows and sliding glass doors provide ample daylight or privacy as needed, with easy access to decks on front and back. Additional amenities for your comfort and convenience include central AC and heat, high-speed internet, ceiling fans, soft water, full-size washer and dryer, extra-large fridge, and more!
