About Nancy Brenneman

My husband Dan and I have been cottaging on Bass Lake since 1969. It has been our dream to share our little piece of heaven with others for years. Our dream has finally become a reality. We hope you enjoy our lakeside retreat and the surrounding Traverse City area as much as we have over the years. Welcome.

Nancy Brenneman purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Nancy Brenneman chose Northern Michigan

It chose us, family memories, growing up as a teachers kid, spending our summers, sunning, boating, and swimming. When the opportunity came up, it was just a natural fit.

What makes this cottage unique

You are 10 minutes from downtown Traverse, yet you may think its Northern Canada by the lake views. The nature, deer, wild life, and fishing are awesome. Boat launch nearby, and dock on property. Quiet and relaxing and fun for the kids.

Just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

We come up to Traverse City multiple times a year, and this cottage is by far the best we've stayed at. Just what we have been looking for. Great price, on the lake, with a beach! The cottage is clean and updated! Nancy is a very friendly host. Can't wait to go back!

Family Get Away.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect for our family, it had everything we needed for the week. The hosts were great and checked on us while we were there to make sure we didn't need anything else during our stay. The kids enjoyed catching fish from the dock, swimming, and using the paddle and row boat. The evenings were great sitting by the lake enjoying the Michigan summer. The cottage is in a great location close to many dining options, shopping, and local attractions. My family loved this place and is looking forward to visiting again.

Northern vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this location. Cottage was clean and updated. Location is close to Traverse with lots to do. Beautiful view of lake from deck and great little beach area with sand for kids to play during the day and fire pit at night. Great dock to keep boat. Would definitely vacation here again!!!

Bass Lake cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week and had a great time. The cottage was updated and clean. The kids (7 and 11) loved playing on the beach, dock, and going for boat rides. The cottage is not too far from downtown and the state hospital, so plenty of dining and shopping choices. We would stay here again.

Romantic Get Away on Bass Lake

  • 5 of 5

Cute cottage with all amenities and more. Cottage has nice sandy frontage, fire pit and sleeping up to six (bunk beds/pull out sofa/master). Has a nice big wrap around porch with great view of the lake. We made it up for fall color tour, it is only a 10 minute drive to downtown Traverse City and a short scenic drive to Empire. Being the fall didn't get to use the lake at all, but looks like kayak, boats, fishing, and pontoons all around, would be a great place for family with kids to spend time on the lake in the summer. Dan and Nancy were great and they have done a great job decorating the cottage. We will be back for sure.

awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Our trip was perfect! The cottage had everything we could possibly need including cookware, food storage containers, plenty of towels and sand toys for the kids. Dan and Nancy were very friendly and helpful. The cabin was very clean and we had no issues with bugs, spiders etc. The kids wanted to spend every waking moment on the beach and the cabin became the vacation more than the local attractions. We cant wsit to come back next year.
