Overview

Northern Michigan Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Private Cottage in Pristine Setting, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 8)

Situated about one half mile off of the main road on a 12 acre parcel of land is River Bend Cottage - your home away from home. Nestled between the river and the base of the hills in the Boardman River Valley, this cozy cottage is located in as Feng Shui and pristine a place as it gets. Let the sounds of the nearby streams carry your stress away. Feel the rejuvenating energy that only nature can provide, and the peace that comes with being completely surrounded by state forest. When you are ready to venture into downtown Traverse City, it's a leisurely 10-15 minute drive.

Awesome Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a bachelorette weekend and loved everything about it! The property was very clean and well maintained! There was plenty of towels, toiletries, space and best of all 3 full bathrooms which is a must with all ladies. The property is beautiful and the owners were very easy to work with and connect. We will definitely use this place again!

A Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

If you want a peaceful getaway, this is your house on the Boardman River. This is was the first time we rented a house on vacation and we had a very positive experience. The house was extremely clean and had all of the basic amenities. My husband fished for trout in the backyard, we made a campfire every night and the drive to downtown Traverse City was only 15 minutes. I highly recommend this property to someone who truly wants a beautiful, relaxing experience in nature.

Great Getaway Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 spent Easter weekend at this great cabin. The kitchen is well stocked which made it much easier to color eggs and put on Easter dinner. There was plenty of room to comfortably accommodate everyone and it's also beautifully decorated. For those wondering about the layout, the master bed/bath and a 2nd bath are on the main floor. The other 3 bedrooms and 1 bath are on the lower walkout basement level which worked great for us. The cabin is cozy and relaxing but not too far out of the way either making it easy to go to town for food and fun. The hot tub and fire pit were both a hit with my young adults. I personally enjoyed having two washers and dryers! I'd recommend this place for anyone looking to get away from it all.
