A unique slice of Northern Michigan heaven, this perfect getaway has undergone a huge transformation and is ready to entertain! Located at the mouth of Grand Traverse Bay, on a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan’s beautiful shoreline and magnificent sunsets, this gem was waiting for the right owners to get their hands on it! The exterior shots faithfully show the tranquil Lake Michigan waterfront, great yard and large deck area…… but that’s only the beginning (Website hidden by Airbnb) Upon entering the home you are welcomed in to a beautiful great room with wide plank hardwood floors, a modern staircase and expanding views of the lake. The natural flow into the brand-new kitchen makes it easy for your group to be together while being in different areas of the house. If you enjoy family cooking while on vacation the kitchen is ready to help you with that. Brand new cabinets, appliances and granite countertops give a modern feel. This, coupled with the open shelving, a handmade coffee bar and custom farmhouse kitchen table give this place cute personal touches you won’t find everywhere else.
On the main floor you will find one bedroom with a queen and bathroom directly across the hall. Continue up the stairs to the second bathroom and two bedrooms each with a queen and king bed. Wake up in what is considered the “master” to a direct view of the water or enjoy your morning coffee on the upper deck!
Don’t stop reading, the owners have added just as much to the outside…. when renting on the big lake, you spend a lot of time outdoors enjoying the waterfront, wine and sunsets. It was important to the owners to make sure this home had a brand new grill and plenty of outdoor seating. A patio table chairs and umbrella, and bench seating make the deck a popular hang-out. In tribute to the great lake - Adirondack chairs on the bluff, a picnic table on a rise, a gently swaying hammock, and fire pit take full advantage of the awesome vistas… (Website hidden by Airbnb) Crystal clear, shallow waters over smooth stones with the occasional boulder for sitting, extend far out into the lake. Peaceful, is the name of the game here - pull up a water chair, close your eyes, and let the cool waves wash over you. For those feeling a bit more adventurous - there are four kayaks on site to take for a spin. Changing with the seasons, the beachfront at the house has plenty of shale and stones - great for skipping, and easily navigated with water shoes, but definitely not your typical “beach.” If you are looking for a sandy area - there’s a quiet public beach a short walk back down Lakeshore Drive (Website hidden by Airbnb) This home will comfortably sleep six and is ready for your group to make wonderful memories in Northern Michigan!
