Description from owner


Our Adorable Cabin is located on beautiful Duck Lake Peninsula. This one bedroom cabin has been in our family for 50 years! The interior offers a rustic, knotty pine interior. It is furnished with original log furniture and beautiful handcrafted items including needlework & glass ceiling lamp. The living room features a newer braided rug from LLBean. We have an old-fashioned Ben Franklin style gas fireplace that will warm you on cozy mornings & evenings. There are ceiling fans in each room. Our property is cozy, clean, and extremely well maintained.

We offer a fully equipped kitchen with toaster, high-end coffee maker, coffee bean grinder, electric can opener, smoothie maker, programmable slow cooker, all flatware, dishes, pots/pans and microwave. We also provide limited seasonings and cooking as well as kitchen towels, paper towels, hot pads, and dish soap.There is no dishwasher or garbage disposal.

There is a flat screen Sony TV & DVD player in the front room. Please feel free to bring your favorite DVDs with you. We also have a Bose Wave radio/CD player. There is no landline, internet service, or cable TV. We offer a small selection of board games and playing cards.

There is 1 bedroom, with a full-size log bed and dresser and a pull out bed to provide sleeping space for 3 guests. We provide quilts, blankets and 4 pillows - . Please bring your own towels and linens (full-size sheets).Our small bathroom has a shower – no tub. It has a newer ceramic floor. A medicine cabinet over the sink is reserved for our guests. (A second medicine cabinet on the wall contains our personal items.) We provide septic safe toilet tissue and ask that nothing but septic safe toilet tissue be flushed, to avoid plumbing problems.

Adorable cabin is located on Duck Lake Peninsula - a beautiful resort community populated with cabins and year-round homes. You will have access to over 300 feet of shared Duck Lake access during your visit. This cabin is not a waterfront property, however, we are located a 5-minute walk to shared water access and a 3-minute walk to the community park/playground. Interlochen State Park is also on Duck Lake (15 minutes away by car) and offers a boat ramp and huge sandy beach. (Michigan State Park pass required.)

This is an ideal area for nature photography, walking and biking and a great base from which to visit the area attractions.We are a 15-minute drive to both Interlochen State Park and the Interlochen Center for the Arts - the latter is known worldwide for music, art and theater. Check their web site for concert and event information and tickets. We are located 25 minutes from historic, downtown Traverse City which offers many fine restaurants, shops, the fully restored State Theatre, West Bay Beaches, and the TART trail.

Travel 30 minutes West and you will find the Betsie River Trailhead in Beulah – park at Beulah Beach on beautiful Crystal Lake – your first 5 miles of biking or walking will be alongside the lake!We are less than 1 hour from the Sleeping Bear Dunes - voted by the viewers of Good Morning America as the most beautiful place in America in 2011. The Dunes is famous for the Dune Climb as well as the exquisite Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive. The Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail opened In 2012 - a 9.5 biking/walking trail in the Dunes Park.We are within a 1-hour drive of numerous wineries, lighthouses, and other attractions. Tourism literature onsite covers these attractions, and others, too numerous to include.

This is a self-catering cottage, but you will have 24-hour access to the owner. We have trash service/recycling with pick up on Thursday mornings (please put trash & recycling out by 7:00 a.m.). We provide all guests with septic safe toilet tissue. We ask that guests use only the septic toilet tissue provided to protect our septic system.
