Description of the Traverse City vacation home rental
Bi-level 2500 sq ft. home, sits on a very private peninsula that splits Green Lake - a 2000 acre all sports lake, 20 minutes from Traverse City. This 4 bedroom, 3 bath home has been extensively renovated. You enter the upper level (street level) through the huge 3 season room that will comfortably seat 15. The room has 2 large windows that overlook the back yard and beach area and a door to access the large deck. A kitchen area separates the 3 season room from the 2nd living area on the upper level. Two bedrooms and two baths are also located on this level - a Queen bedroom has an onsuite bathroom with tub/shower and the bedroom on the other side of the house has a set of bunkbeds - their bathroom is accross the hall. A large deck, with seating for 10, is just off the living area; ideal for sitting with that first cup of coffee in the morning and watching the sun rise across the lake.

The downstairs has 2 bedrooms and 1 bath. Everyone's favorite bedroom, has a huge Up North queen rustic bed, that provides a breathtaking morning wakeup view of the sun rising on the lake. The 2nd bedroom has a set of twin beds. Also located on this level is a gameroom/living area, with a Foosball table and a new Queen size sofa sleeper.The living area has been updated with a new flat screen television and DVD player. An entertainment bar was recently added that includes a microwave and a mini-frig. This will keep everyone from going upstairs to the kitchen for snacks when watching TV, playing Foosball or enjoying the backyard.

The outside has 150 feet of lake frontage with a sandy beach. For those cool nights, a fire ring and bench seating is available right on the lake. To keep the kids entertained, the large trees have a Zip Line and a tire swing. To keep Dad entertained, a large hammock hangs in the shade of the trees. Enjoy those beautiful summer days, cooking out on the grill, with seating up to 10 people on two picnic tables.

Green Lake is stocked with plenty of fish and motorized boats are allowed. Bring your boat and tie it up to our 120 foot dock or rent our 12 person pontoon boat for the week ($500). Provided is a 3 person canoe for exploring the lake. We have a deep sandy beach for the kids. Anchored off shore is a floating swim raft with a ladder to access the lake.

The house is completely furnished with everything needed for your family vacation - beds and baths are furnished with linens, blankets and towels. The kitchen has it all - full size refrigerator, stove/oven, new Bosch dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, dishes, glasses, pots and pans, utensils, and full size pantry. Located in a separate laundry room is a laundry sink and a new Bosch front loading washer and dryer.

Labor Day Weekend

September 3, 2014

My family and our friends rented this home for the holiday weekend and were extremely happy with our choice. The property, home and lake were better then the description. The home was clean and well kept with things for young age kids and even our teenager kids. They all LOVED the checker in the 3 season room. The owners were great to work with and we will definitely be back next year!!!!!! Thank you Ken

This home is in a lovely location and had plenty of room to spread out or to be together. We loved the canoe, the firepit, the chairs on the beach, the fishing, and the fun "up north" decor. Side trips to Traverse City and Sleeping Bear Dunes were fun. Our major disappointment was the lack of air conditioning. (To be fair, this house was not advertised as having a/c. We were not misled--we just didn't think to ask when we booked.) Although there were fans throughout, the heat was brutal and unexpected. No one could have anticipated the heat wave with a heat index of 100 degrees. We were glad we rented the pontoon boat to enable us to cool off with the lake breezes. I'm guessing that most other weeks, the lack of air conditioning would not have been a problem.

Beautiful scenery, but NO AIR CONDITIONING!

July 18, 2013

We had a wonderful time overall. The week we stayed here, it was over 90 degrees every day so having no air conditioning was brutal. The pontoon boat was so much fun! However, it doesn't have a ladder to get back on the boat if you jump in when you're in the middle of the lake. The beach area is NOT a swimming area. It has too much muck and seaweed. Adults can only go in as deep as mid-shin and then the muck and seaweed begins. There weren't enough towels/washcloths for everyone in our family (10). There were no bath mats to put down in the bathrooms so the floors got soaked. The downstairs bathroom has a really bad leak in the ceiling.

Red House on Green Lake was perfect!

June 9, 2011

We booked this property early in the year to ensure we would have a place that would accommodate both our families and allow us to attend our daughter's graduations from the Interlochen Arts Academy. The owner, Ken Collins, answered every question we had about the property and provided hands on customer service every step of the way. We felt like we were guests in a family cabin, which we were, and it made it so easy to truly relax and enjoy our stay. The property is exactly as described and photos are accurate. It was very clean and well maintained and I would recommend it to all my friends and family members. It is great for families with kids of all ages. It is in a safe area with friendly neighbors, yet is very private and being on the lake is so relaxing. It is located 4 miles from the Interlochen Arts Academy and only a bit further to gas, groceries, and restaurants. We enjoyed using the canoe but regret not being able to use the pontoon boat to explore the lake, due to inclement weather. We truly feel blessed to have found such a nice cabin and have nothing but praise for the owner!

This was the perfect place to have a quiet, wonderful week to spend with our adult children and grandchildren. Very safe beach with sand for the kids, lots of space to be together and apart! Great 3 season room. Everything we needed was available. VERY CLEAN and comfortable.

We really enjoyed our stay and the house was more then what we expected. The lake is wonderfully clean and we really enjoyed taking the pontoon boat out daily. We only had one small problem and the owner acknowledged it and handled it without question. I would certainly rent this home again!

This is a great place to stay for a family that is large and needs their space. I was amazed at how much room we all had and how great the sun room was for everyone as we could shut the door to the rest of the house and watch TV or just play games. The pontoon is a must if you go and great on gas! My family enjoyed boating around the lake and fishing for blue gills. The house has everything and anything you need! Just bring yourself and your clothes! This area is very quiet and on a dead end street that allows beautiful and peacful walks at anytime....the neighbors are very friendly too! My family and I will have a hard time topping this home. Parrish Family

Best Trip Ever

July 20, 2009

Were to begin? This was our first trip to Michigan and it was better than we could have ever expected. The Collin's home on Green Lake was just perfect. The rental came with everything you could possibly need and room to spare. Don't forget to rent the pontoon boat - you'll be sorry if you don't. The area and lake was peaceful and laid back - no need to rush if your don't want. There is so much to see and do in and around Traverse City - we highly recommend the area for a vation and the Collin's home is the prefect home base for the trip of a life time.

Beautiful home with lots of fun!

July 17, 2009

This home was beautiful. Everything looks/is brand new and has every ammentity you could ask for. My kids loved the zipline, tire swing and huge beach area. We loved the fire pit, boat and privacy. The large family room easily fit my family of 10- with room for everyone. The kitchen has every appliance you would need, and the front loader washer/dryer was great! We would definitely rent this home again. Beautiful!
