Looking for a quiet get-a-way? Simple and cozy, this lake-view cabin will help you create family memories.
A family owned cottage for over 35 years, this is the place to relax. Simple, but cozy, the cottage offers a gentle get-a-way from your busy life. There is a large living space with a combined kitchen, dining and living area that allows easy family gatherings. The fireplace provides an inviting setting in the evenings and the large, bright, enclosed porch is a perfect spot for dining while enjoying a view of the lake. Three bedrooms off the living area (two with a double bed, one with a single bed) plus a sleeper sofa (on the screened in porch) provide comfortable sleeping for 5-7 people. Pets are OK, but no smoking, please.
The cottage is situated on a large shaded corner lot, right across from local community park that is available for picnic gatherings or a game of baseball or volleyball.
Lake access is less than a minute walk away through the neighborhood association’s private community park where you will find a 300 foot waterfront area that includes a 30 foot swim dock in a roped off area with a sandy bottom.
Not far away, you will find the Interlochen Center for the Arts (1.3 miles away) where you can enjoy world class performances of music, plays, dance and art exhibitions as well as free concerts from local musicians Two grocery stores are less than a five minute drive away and Traverse City (a 15 minutes drive) will provide you with all the amenities of a big city.
The Traverse City area has a wealth of places to explore, from old lighthouses, to wineries, tall ships, bike trails, canoeing, Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes (the dune run is something not to miss!), the Cherry Bowl Drive-in Theater (straight out of the 1950s!) and don't forget the National Cherry Festival in July!
As a city girl from Pittsburgh, PA, Michigan was my summer home. My parents bought the home as a summer get away, a place to enjoy the music of The Interlochen Center for the Arts, spend time with family and just relax. I began bringing my children to Michigan when they were babies and they have since grown, attended the Interlochen Center for the Arts and I have been able to share my favorite activities with them; from swimming in the lake, boating, beach campfires, and of course attending Interlochen events. We currently live in Colorado, but we always try to get back to Interlochen every summer.
Art and Becky purchased this cottage in 1976
This cottage has been in the family for over 40 years. For over three generations we have enjoyed family reunions and vacations. Start your own tradition and bring your family up to norther Michigan for a holiday.
The cottage is a great gathering place. Its large kitchen-dining-living area welcomes people to relax and socialize. The large screened in porch offers a perfect spot for an evening meal or a cool spot to sleep while being serenaded by the lake loons.
My old friends and I stayed here for a high school reunion, and the cabin was sweet and quiet. The quintessential Interlochen cabin in the woods. Thanks for making our reunion special. :)
Thank you for renting your family cottage to us. We make some Great memories with our grandsons. We felt at home with all the amenities provided! Canoe was a hit! We will definitely be back! Loved the breezeway for coffee in the mornings.
The cottage was clean and in a great location! Access to the lake was easy and very beautiful! We were first surprised that there wasn't a tv but it was nice in the long run! Linens on beds and extra ones in drawers were clean and smelled fresh! Plenty of cooking utinsils! The front porch could be tidied up a bit- Perhaps a shed for those items! Our biggest complaint were the beds! They were terribly uncomfortable and made for a very restless night! They sink in the middle and should be replaced to give guests a better night sleep! Worst mattresses we've ever slept in! Would certainly revisit cottage if mattresses were replaced!
Very clean accommodations. Had everything we needed and the screened porch was awesome!! Loved the lake!
Rustic and basic, but very enjoyable. Clean and well maintained. Walk-able, run-able, bike-able to Interlochen Center. Best time: watching my two sons take the canoe out on the lake. I would stay there again, definitely.
We only stayed one night, attending concert at Interlochen. Cottage was comfortable, had everything we needed, and enjoyed sitting on the dock enjoying our time with friends.
