This beautiful home was built in 2007. It offers a large elevated deck to view the 1800 feet of river frontage and enjoy eating on after grilling your meal. A large open floor plan with vaulted ceilings, granite counter tops and solid rustic ash flooring really adds to the charm and beauty of this home. Along with 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths, the master bath having a steam shower, it also has a back deck with a hot tub for 8 and a fenced in yard. A complete kitchen is set up for all your culinary needs, and linens and towels are also provided. There is a view to the River from every room in the home except the bathrooms. Wireless internet and cable tv are also provided. There is plenty to do here with the river activities! Kayaks and tubes are provided to float down River! A drop off and pickup service is available!

I have been an active outdoors person all my life. I enjoy gardening, hikes, animal watching and many more outdoor activities.
Richard purchased this house in 2007
This property is one of the best in the area with many outdoor activities. Close to Traverse City and many tourist hot spots it can't be beat!
I purchased this vacant property in 2005 and camped on it for 2 years on and off to get a feel for the land before I built on it. I believe the location of the home and its surrounding land makes it a great vacation spot for all.
This property is exactly as it is looks in the pictures. The property is amazing with great privacy and views of the river. Loved fishing on the banks with a fire nearby. The family room and kitchen are great for entertaining and cooking, has everything you would need. The family room had very comfortable seating with a wood burning fireplace, awesome! Bedrooms were all spacious and comfortable. Plenty of extra blankets and pillows too. Hot tub was 1 step out the back door, so great. Richard lives right down the road and was very responsive to any and all of our needs. Headed into Traverse City for dining, bowling and wine tasting. Plenty to do for a long fall weekend. We surprised our parents for their wedding anniversary by taking them to Richard's place and they absolutely loved the accommodations and the overall experience. We would very highly recommend this home and will look for an opportunity to rent with Richard again!
We stayed here two years ago in October and again this October, one week each time. Both visits were wonderful. It's a beautiful house with a wonderful view. We love being right on the river but also close to lots of great restaurants and things to do in Traverse city. The house has a lot of great, open space. It is easy to baby proof for our 1 and 3 year old children. They loved running around in the woods around the house and down by the river. There are also a lot of Boardman River trails just down the road.
Richard is a great host. Helpful when necessary, friendly but definitely gives you your space to have a fantastic vacation. Hot tub and steam shower are great bonuses. Would return here every weekend if we could!
We had an awesome time. The house was fabulous, it was clean and perfect for our group. The property is beautiful, the river, the trees and the majestic scenery made us feel like we were in a wonderful movie. Richard was very accommodating and hospitable.
Richard has created the perfect vacation home. This is not a standard up-north rental full of used furniture and random rickrack. This is a house designed to feel like a home in paradise. It's the details that make the difference: good appliances and kitchenware for cooking. Quality deck chairs. The STEAM SHOWER and a clean, well-kept hot tub. I've been renting homes 'up north' for years and this is by far THE best. We spent hours hiking in the woods, sitting at the fire and greeting the river traffic, relaxing on the deck, hanging in the house...highly recommend this be your choice.
A beautiful place to relax and enjoy nature. Secluded but close to everything Traverse City has to offer. Richards' home(s) and property are beautiful. The only noise you hear is the sound of the birds, rabbits and deer that traverse the property. Oh! ... And the sound of the Boardman River in the front of the home. The home is beautiful, clean and well stocked. We enjoyed the hot tub on the rear deck, the BBQ grill on the large front deck, the nice fire pit near the river and kayaking on the Boardman River. Richard(the owner) is kind, gracious and very hospitable. He drove us upriver with his kayaks and we kayaked back to our front door. A great 2 hr. float. Location of the property is fantastic. Traverse City, Elmbrook g.c. The Crown g.c. Terra Firma brew pub, Boones Inn. The bike paths are great. Acme to Traverse City, Traverse City to Sutton's Bay are beautiful paved trails. All within a 20 minute drive. This is a great place to relax and kick back or to get out and explore the T.C. area. Our party of six would definitely return. D.M.D Brownstown, Mi. Sept.7-12, 2016 ps. Thanks again! Richard. We had a great time.
Located on the beautiful Boardman River just min. away from historic downtown Traverse City. Many wonderful restaurants, wineries, golf courses, and shops just to name a few of the many things available to do and see in the area. Great boating and fishing, hiking and kayaking. We have the Cherry Festival in July, Horse show in July, Movie Festival after that and many, many events thru-out the spring, summer, and fall. And don't forget about the fall colors. There is no better place to see them than on the River! There is plenty of wildlife in the area, lots to do and see right in this beautiful home's backyard! Enjoy a bonfire by the river and watch the night sky for northern lights and satelites!
