Overview

Interlochen Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Leave the rush behind. Quiet getaway near Interlochen music camp on Green Lake

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!

About Art and Becky

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

Why Art and Becky chose Northern Michigan

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Cute cottage/Restless Nights!

  • 3 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: So sorry the mattresses were so uncomfortable. They are all less than 5 years old, but we will look into why they did not feel good. A good night's sleep is so important during a vacation!

Perfect for the price

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay and got a chance to get out in the canoe! Green Lake is such a wonderful lake to explore. We have enjoyed the location for almost 40 years and we never tire of it! Hope to see you again.

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.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay, even though it was short. Sitting by the lake in the evening is a wonderful way to end the day. Sometimes you can even hear the loons call out! Hope your next stay can be longer!

Excellent family cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the cottage and the accommodations were just as described. I wish we would have had time to use the kayak, maybe next time. Lloyd was very helpful and Becky was great to work and communicate with. I'd recommend the cottage to anyone looking for a nice family vacation. Very cute and cozy. It's easy to access the TC attractions or just hang out in Interlochen and relax. I think it would even be a nice place to stay in the winter. Thanks, Becky!

Exactly as Advertised

  • 4 of 5

We found the cottage to be dated but exactly as described. When we arrive we were surprised how clean it was. It's located on a road with very little traffic so we felt safe letting the kids play outside. The view of the lake is limited but there is access to a community park/dock less than minute walk away. The owner, as well as the property manager, were very responsive and easy to work with. We would definitely consider staying here again if we travel back to the Traverse City area.
