Beautiful Sunsets Overlooking Dyer Lake! Fully furnished two-bedroom home. Firepit at beach, fishing dock. 2 Bikes, 2 Kayaks, two-car garage.

We want your four-legged friends to enjoy a vacation as well, therefore pets are welcome and they are no extra charge. Quiet, dog-friendly lane. Fenced yard next to the cottage.

Only 7 miles to downtown Traverse City. This is the relaxing spot to return to after a day of adventuring in and around our region.
Relax. Put Your Feet Up. You're At The Lake!

The space

Equal distance to downtown Traverse City and Interlochen Center for the Arts, this is a remodeled, winterized cottage with a deck that overlooks a small fishing/kayaking lake. Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is 30 miles Northwest (home of Cherry Republic!). And Moomer's Ice Cream is five miles away.

An open living/dining room/kitchen (fully equipped ~ no dishwasher).
Two bedrooms and one bath (endless hot water). Washer/dryer on site. Linens and lots of towels provided. Coffee/filters will be available and the fridge/cupboards will have condiments available for your use.

The deck overlooks a kayaking/paddle boarding lake with great Bass and Blue Gill! You can fish from the dock or use the kayaks (one of which is a fishing kayak).

A two-burner gas grill is on the deck, along with outdoor dining seating for four.

Beautiful sunsets most every night. Early mornings and evenings, the Blue Heron usually shows up in the cattails. Bald Eagle flies over often and the loons call twice a day as they return to Long Lake.

A natural setting, in a quiet neighborhood on a dog-friendly country lane.

Maps, brochures and things to do (along with some coupons) will be included with the House Manual.

Pets are very welcome ~ they're part of the family, right? Smoking outside, please. Oh, and no burning candles inside the house. Thanks!

CABLE TV ~ lots of channels, DVD player, fast Internet, Apple TV, and all house amenities.

Such a great find for the price! Located close to everything, amazing view, includes all your major needs & comes with a super helpful and kind host! We were comfortable and felt at home. The major plus is our dogs felt at home too and Joni had fresh water waiting for all of us! We will be back!

Great weekend trip! House is better than pictures. Joni had fresh water waiting for my thirsty dog, a wonderful touch! Overall, location is great: close to town, but really lovey quiet place. Everything was easy and wonderful, thanks for a great stay! :)

Great location to enjoy both a quiet lake as well as a short drive into downtown Traverse City! The cottage is comfortable and has everything you need. Plus, the owner is super nice and accommodating. We really loved this place and our kids didn't want to leave!

House was clean and very comfortable, especially with a dog in the mix. The house may have been rather close to the nearby houses but you couldn't really tell once inside the home. The view was spectacular especially during sunsets. Joni was a great host and even came to meet us upon our arrival and gave us helpful tips. Very satisfied with this house and location!

This being my first Airbnb stay, I didn't quite know what to expect. Joni was more than helpful. Her home was full of everything we could have possibly needed, very close to Traverse City but quiet and secluded also very clean. Would recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay in TC area

We want to start by thanking Joni for being such a great host and for taking the time to answer all our questions about the area and for providing great suggestions. For this stay it was just my wife and I and we found the cottage to have everything we needed for our four day stay. The house was as described but the description falls short of just how wonderful the view is from inside and outside of the house. Within minutes of walking in we were totally relaxed by the great lake view. The cottages location was close to everything. Traverse City was minutes away and and the dunes and Lake Michigan were also a short ride away. We enjoyed the use of the in-house washer and dryer and we also took advantage of the provided kayaks. We were very pleased with our stay and would do it again. We think this great choice for couples getting away and for people with pets. The host made everything easy and was always a text away for any questions or needs.

My two-bedroom winterized home is available to folks who are interested in a quiet, peaceful setting and would like to bring their pets. After exploring all the Grand Traverse Region has to offer, return 'home', relax, enjoy the sunset out the lakeside bay window and then rest …
