Our house is located on a very quiet, private road surrounded with tall trees. You'll feel a thousand miles away, even though supermarkets, department stores, fine restaurants, golf courses, spas and casinos are within 5 minutes drive. Sitting directly on the beach, our 3 bedroom 2 bath house is located halfway between Traverse City and Elk Rapids Michigan, on the East Arm of Lake Michigan's Grand Traverse Bay. Only 15 minutes from the Cherry Capital Airport in Traverse City, the Sunset Beach House is an easy 4 hour drive from Detroit or 5 hours from Chicago.
You can pack light since our house is fully equipped. All bed linens, comforters, kitchen, bath and beach towels are provided; there is a washer and dryer in the house so you can bring the minimum amount of clothes. The large, gourmet kitchen is equipped with a full assortment of cooking utensils, pots and pans, microwave, coffee maker and bean grinder, toaster, electric teapot and other small appliances. There is a large propane grill on the deck with various barbecue utensils. There are 16 deck chairs, 2 large deck tables and 4 smaller outdoor side tables.
The two-story living room boasts a wall of windows overlooking the lake. You'll find a home theatre system with large LCD flat screen HDTV, DVD player, and digital cable with HD providing HD sports channels, HBO HD, Cinemax HD and many others. There is broadband high-speed internet access with WiFi on all three decks and all the way to the beach! There is a direct-vent wood-burning fireplace for those cozy evenings in front of the home theatre system.
The extra-large master bedroom and bath are located at the top of the stairs, and include a walk-in closet and separate sitting area with full sofa, chair and ottoman. The sofa also converts into a queen bed. Bedrooms 2 and 3 each contain a twin, 2 twin bunk beds and a twin trundle bed that provide sleeping for 8. There are 2 additional queen sofa beds in the living room.
Outdoor activities abound! Bring your boat - there is a boat launch at Yuba Park, about a half mile north along the beach - or rent one locally. Fantastic sailing, waterskiing and fishing can be found right off the beach. There are more than 20 golf courses within 45 minutes drive, including world-class courses designed by Nicklaus, Palmer, Player, Doak, and Weiskopf. You'll find outstanding mountain biking and hiking at the Vasa Trail, less than 10 minutes drive, and at the numerous National Forest trails in the area. Great road biking can be found locally around the chain-of-lakes area as well as on the Leelanau peninsula. Take a day-trip wine-tasting at one of the nearly 30 wineries in the area. Visit Sleeping Bear Dunes National Seashore and climb the dunes. There are lots of fun kid activities nearby, like mini-golf, waterslides, go-karts and more. Don't miss the exceptional fall color tours in the autumn, and in the winter visit one of the more than 10 downhill ski areas within an hours drive or go sledding, tubing, skating or cross-country skiing.
We hope you enjoy our house as much as we do. Once you visit you'll make a vacation at the Sunset Beach House an annual family tradition!

Life sure can get busy! We stayed at this home during Christmas weekend and it was more than the pictures provided. Perhaps we all just needed to get away after a crazy year filled with various challenges for our families. We hugged each other upon entry, created great memories (including a fantastic family walk), and enjoyed "pajama day" on Christmas - no traveling to different homes. Tim was more than accommodating for arrival/departure times, allowing a great birthday brunch for my middle son. We look forward to rejuvenating our spirits again at this gorgeous location. Thanks so much! (P.S. Our friends saw our pictures and want to rent; we don't want to share! Lol But we will. :} )
