Description of the Traverse City vacation cottage rental
Awesome vacation spot in Traverse City on Bass Lake (between Long Lake and Silver Lake). Beautifully furnished home right on the water - lake is just 20 feet of deck away! No steps to climb for older or disabled members of your family. Only available by the week in summer months. One slot remaining for 2016 - August 28 to September 4. Lakeside rents Sunday to Sunday.

Lakeside has over 150 feet of private sandy beach with sparkling clear water. 350 acre Bass Lake is an all sports lake - you can bring your own boat or borrow our beautiful new Bennington pontoon at a low additional cost (1/3 what is charged in town). Every room has a gorgeous lake view.

This super clean 1750 square foot home has 3 bedrooms (2 have queens and our huge one has a queen plus 2 twins) and 2 full baths. This is a modern home with central air, a fully equipped kitchen including dishwasher, a full laundry room and beautiful ceramic and hardwood floors. An Absopure water cooler provides delicious spring water - no need to drag cases of bottled water on your vacation. Grocery stores are just minutes away - one even delivers!

Lakeside has telephone service, high speed wireless internet and cable, large smart TV's, a full bookcase and a special children's DVD library they can view from bed. The guest house has been converted to a sparkling new game room (see pix at bottom below) - perfect for separating the generations since it's just across the deck (this allows for late night activities when others may be asleep in the big house). Game room has a wall of glass facing the lake.

If you have a family member that can't 'do steps', this is truly a vacation paradise for them. They can be totally on their own - from the kitchen to the bedroom to the bathroom to the outside deck chairs to the beach and the water - no climbing involved!

Your dog, if you bring one, will have an incredible vacation - no leash required, and no crazy extra charges for that special member of your family!
Area Information
