The cottage has 2 bedrooms with an adjoining bathroom between the bedrooms. The kitchen and dining room/living room are situated in an open floor plan. The kitchen has all the necessary tools for cooking with a stove and refrigerator for your use.
The love seat in the living room folds out into a twin bed to comfortably sleep a 5th person. Both bedrooms have a new queen size bed which are very comfortable.
I have lived in the area for 20 years and have always dreamed of owning a place on the water. I am lucky enough to have found the perfect spot and to own a piece of paradise. I love sharing this property with others and see the joy they get from being there. I'm an engineer by day and love going out to the cottage as often as possible. Like you, I need a vacation and I am lucky enough to get to retreat to a perfect location.
Gary Hughey purchased this cottage in 2012
This is very close to Traverse City where I both work and live. Leelanau County is one of the most beautiful places in the country and on top of that this cabin nearly boarders Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. I have many excellent memories as a young person visiting the Dunes for the challenging dune climb with my friends. They always wanted to see how fast they could climb to the top! Try it, it will be day to remember!
When this was built, they put it very close to the water. 12 feet past the end of the deck is the water's edge, making the cabin feel like an extension of the lake. There is a fire pit in between the cabin and the water for evenings sitting around a fire by the water. This cabin creates unique opportunity to enjoy the closeness of the water and all the amenities necessary to be comfortable.
Just what we needed for a long weekend getaway. Lake was calm morning and evening and was a great setting to relax and unwind.
We rented this little cottage to get away and give our college age daughter a week way before school started. It is a great little cottage. Very clean and nicely furnished pine cabin. Even thought the stove was small, I was able to cook several meals and breakfast just fine. We are a bit unusual - as we like to cook and back on vacation. The dock was very nice to sit on and the row boat got too. The fire pit was used several nights by us. The furnished fire wood was a plus.
We used the cabin as a base of operations for surfing at Glen Arbor and Otter Creek Beach on Esch Road, paddle boarding on the Crystal River and fishing at several locations, a impromptu wine tour, a visit to Leland, Northport and all the fun Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lake Shore Activities.
We wanted to stay for a month!
The cottage was clean and well appointed. The bed was comfortable. The lake was beautiful and perfect for the kids to swim in - it is warm and shallow going out quite a ways. The location was perfect - a short drive from many Sleeping Bear trails and beaches. We were so glad that we didn't stay closer to Traverse City as we would have spent half our trip in the car. The owner was very kind and responsive to my questions. Overall we had a great time and hope to return.
Our stay at this cottage was wonderful and just the right location. The cottage is right on the lake with beautiful views of the sunset. Little Traverse Lake is a nice quite lake with good swimming and warm water. This was a well-maintained property and the owner was very responsive to inquiries. The cottage has two bedrooms with a queen bed in each; perfect for two couples. The kitchen was modern enough and everything worked well.
We had a fantastic time. This little cabin was the perfect place for our week long up north adventure. We loved being right on the little traverse lake, and enjoyed using the row boat provided. The little restaurant/market across the street had awesome pizza and we were close to both Leland and glen arbor. The cabin was clean and perfect for the two of us, there was definitely room for 2-3 more people comfortably. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a get away!
If you're looking for a no-frills, relaxing, lake front cottage that is close to many great areas, this is the place for you! Great communication on the owner's part. Thanks!
