Northern Michigan House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 10

This striking contemporary home awaits you in Traverse City; named the "Most Beautiful Place in America" on Good Morning America. Private waterfront on Ruth Lake, connected to Long Lake (all sports). Five minutes to two sandy Long Lake beaches and two boat launches. 3D Theater room, lower level entertainment area, hot tub, European steam sauna in master, workout equipment, and more all in a secluded private setting.

Home features central air conditioning, sleeps 10 comfortably with 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths with 1 king, 2 queens and 2 trundle beds (4 twins). The king is on the main level and the remaining 3 bedrooms are on the lower level. The kitchen is fully stocked and features dishwasher, Keurig coffee maker, etc. The lower level has a huge entertainment room; play air hockey, ping pong and board games. Enjoy your own 3D theatre room with a 3D projector, plenty of movies to choose from, and all set up for Cable/DVD/Internet. Seating for the entire family, just bring your own popcorn. Cage weight-lifting equipment and elliptical machine are available for your use. The lower level walks out to the lakeside of the property.

The property sits on Ruth Lake with a dock. While not a swimming lake,it offers great canoeing or kayaking (easy to rent in this area, delivery available) and good fishing. You can portage through an opening and be on Long Lake. Don't feel like rowing? Stretch out and relax in the hot tub. Situated under tall trees, it makes for a great relaxing place to unwind. Enjoy grilling on the gas grill on the patio, and roast marshmallows in the bon fire area below.

This home is near Interlochen, Frog Pond Village and Interlochen Golf Course. (There is a set of golf clubs for guest to enjoy!) About 15 minutes to downtown Traverse City, centrally located to popular destinations, easily visit the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, voted one of the best summer trips in 2012 by National Geographic.

Many great parks to swim, hike, run and more. See the many suggestions below.

Taylor Park - 7 minutes 4.4 miles, sandy beach offering a place to swim with a natural, beautifully forested setting. It is located directly across from Long Lake Grocery on North Long Lake Rd.

Gilbert Park - sandy beach/boat launch (near Taylor Park). Located a short distance from Taylor Park, closest beach to house, a sunny, sandy beach area and a grassy picnic area to relax in the shade. Gilbert Park also has two beach volleyball courts, a boat launch and dock outside of the swim area. Crescent Shores Boat Launch is 3 miles away.

We enjoyed our stay, the house was neat and clean. We never did figure out how to get the top off from the jacuzzi, but everything else was wonderful.

Owner's Response: We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. We are not sure what happened with the hot tub cover. We had it serviced right before your arrival. We certainly will look at it to make sure it is working correctly.

Reviewer Comments:

This home was perfect for our girls' trip! The home was clean, nice and even prettier than the pictures! The beds were the most comfortable rental home beds I've ever laid in! It is a little bit of a drive to downtown Traverse City, however - about 20 minutes.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at Pura Vida and we are so pleased you had such a great time. There is an advantage to being a little ways out from downtown Traverse City-less traffic, easier to park, you can get into shops and restaurants and more fresh air!
