Why Paul and Jean Kirchner chose Northern Michigan

Very private and yet close to Traverse City.

What makes this cottage unique

The bunkhouse, adjacent to the main cabin offers a custom space with all wood interior, where you can awake in an upper bunk overlooking the lake or relax in the floor level living space with a built in table, large screen TV, private bath with a shower and a closet that holds the stackable washer dryer for the property. It is very nice for families or couples want some separation while having the main cabin and other amenities to share.

Summer 2016 we added a lakeside enclosed gazebo to allow you to be outside in a mosquito free dining and relaxing area.

The cottage is offers a PRIVATE LOCATION on the end of a seasonal road with NESTING EAGLES and abundant wildlife, a sandy bottomed lake, AMAZING SUNSETS and only minutes from downtown Traverse City. BOATS AND A HOT TUB ARE INCLUDED in the price of your rental.

Notes:
This cottage is adored by couples for honeymoons and anniversaries because of its private location, close to Traverse City. Families with small children love the quiet location with sandy bottom lake. The bunkhouse is a unique feature that is especially helpful if some family members desire/require a private space or quiet space for parts of the day. It is self contained minus the kitchen so older children or grandma and grandpa can have their own retreat. The west facing great room and deck are the perfect place to watch amazing sunsets over Bass Lake. Many visitors report seeing nesting eagles and other native water birds near the cottage. It is in a private location with only one other neighbor at the end of the road. Credit cards are preferred for reservations.

Three generation family get away

  • 5 of 5

The Bass lake cabin was wonderful. I was there with my mother and my grown children. The bunk house was great for my son and his girl friend to get away to. The cabin was very well supplied to ensure our stay was comfortable. With several lounging areas on the property, and the addition of kayaks and a paddle boat and row boat there was plenty of outside activity. The convenience to Traverse City and other shopping was great. Would definitely plan another vacation here and recommend to others.

Thanks to the Kirchners' for helping to make our vacation a memorable one.

We loved the property!! Everything was so convenient and kept up. Hot tub is a plus :))

  • 4 of 5

We loved the fact that this property was so private...yet close enough to all attractions by a short car ride.

The cabin is so cozy and had everything we could think of. So grateful for the wood floors 👍 Also LOVED the fireplace and the great bunk house!! The boats were so fun. Fire pit was perfect and we had enough s'mores to last a lifetime 😊

All in all we enjoyed our stay so much and were very grateful for this opportunity. Thank you for opening up your cabin!!

By the way...I hardly ever give 5 stars for any rating which is why I only gave a 4. However..if there was a 4 1/2 ...I would have given that 😊

A wonderful, beautiful setting and relaxing, peaceful little get-away!

  • 4 of 5

Absolutely beautiful view of the lake, property and the cute little cottage and bunkhouse were spotless! .. and just as pictured. I would have been content w just looking at the inland lake and watching the wildlife the entire time. We even saw the bald eagle that nests in that area two times; one w our 20 month old grandson. It was so close as it flew over, he yelled "Bird!" and he's generally a quiet little guy. I loved the campfire, the fireplace, kayaking, and the hot tub was a super bonus! It was a perfect birthday/ Mother's Day w/end get-away. My two daughters and their little families came up for a surprise visit one day which made this time extra special! Stephanie was wonderful to work with and available to answer questions we had. She even had a bottle of wine and doggy treats there when we arrived! We were allowed to have our two old labs with us (one is blind.) It gave us great piece of mind to not have to worry how they were managing in a kennel. The property is so close to everything, Traverse City, Boones restaurant, and a nice little deli close by that serves great pizza. My girls also had such a great time they are already talking about us coming back again!
