Sweet cottage on private Indian Lake 10 mi. from downtown Traverse City. (It is a cottage, not the Grand Traverse Resort.)
The cottage is set off the road with a house on one side with a tall privacy fence, and nature on the other side of the cottage. The lake is great for viewing waterfowl, fishing, canoeing, and sitting out at the campfire and looking at the natural beauty of the setting. (It is not a swimming lake.)

Our HOT WATER HEATER is very finicky. If you adjust the temperature with the cold water and then back down the cold again, you will have cold water only till the hot water catches up again. Be forewarned.

This was our second stay at Joyce's cabin. We loved our trip and experience so much, we turned it into a second annual girls trip. Very comfortable, great location and we didn't want to leave.

We had a great stay at Indian Lake Cottage! Its location was perfect - remote enough for privacy, star-gazing, and enjoying quiet evenings, but still just a short drive from town. Joyce left plenty of touches, such as basic kitchen supplies, matches, etc. that made our stay super easy! The bed was comfortable and the cottage itself was very sunny and comfortable. We would definitely consider staying again if we were in the area.

Very cute cottage and an easy drive to Traverse City. The house was clean and the amenities were great - fire pit and canoes among other things.

No TV or WiFi, and the family survived! Unplug in this cozy cottage on the lake. It was perfect for our stay in Traverse City. Helpful Hints: When you first turn into the driveway, you will feel like you are not in the right place. At the end of the driveway, you can't see the cottage. Look to the right, and you will see the green propane tank, and the yellow storage shed.

This cozy cottage is a lot bigger than it looks in the pictures. It's a little tricky to find but once you get there, it's easy to remember how to find it. My husband and I went for a long weekend to explore the Traverse City area and we loved the downtown area with all of the shops and restaurants.

This place was great. A little far out from the city, but perfect. My wife and I came here on our honeymoon and it was romantic and quiet. Joyce was in great contact and I know if I needed anything, she was there. This is the place for you if you're wanting to get away for a minute, but want to be somewhat close to the action.

This little cottage is cute and had many nice things about it. We enjoyed the Cherry coffee Joyce left for us, and the bottle of drinking water, and the cottage was very clean. We were taken aback when, after driving for hours, we were greeted with an unmade bed..."so you can make it up the way you like it." Seriously??? And the bed had to be forcibly moved from the wall in order to make it up...very difficult with my injured back. There is no TV, no radio, and no internet connection. When we had to check in this morning 24 hours ahead of time for our flight, we actually had to drive a few miles at 6am to get a signal. It was chilly in the cabin. We turned on the heat, but the smell was horrible, so we bundled up and stared longingly at the fireplace, imagining a cozy, warm fire. Sadly, fires are not permitted in the cabin. And the shower??? Think camping with a bag of water for a shower. I was unable to wash my hair because I didn't have enough time to stand under the drip to rinse out the shampoo. We did enjoy sitting by the tiny little lake in the morning. The trip to Traverse City was fairly convenient (15-ish minutes.) We were not thinking this would be an upscale lodge, and we have stayed at many very basic hostels and AirBnBs, both in the US, Europe and Eastern Europe, but for the price ($393 for 3 nights) we expected more.

Risposta di Joyce:
I encourage each guest to review the listing before their stay at our cottage. It is not the Grand Traverse Resort Spa. As a reminder, we are sharing our adorable cottage (which has well over 100 positive reviews and a 5 star rating) with those who choose to stay there for $100 a night in Traverse City. As stated in the listing, I am a phone call away for problems if they arise. Today our new guest texted us to say there was a water pressure problem with the showerhead. That was all that was needed for us to zip over to the cottage and replace the showerhead! I didn't know about the problem beforehand. I wish you would have let me know. Please do not complain about items that were fully disclosed in the listing and for items you failed to communicate with us about. If you wish to buy the cottage, you may have a fire in the fireplace, have a TV, radio, and WIFI, if that is what you want. Otherwise the cottage with continue to be a lovely minimally cluttered oasis of peace surrounded by nature. That is what we want for our cottage. Peace.

We enjoy living in the Traverse City area surrounded by the Grand Traverse Bay.
Our family up-cycled this cottage from the top down as a family project.
This cottage is also available for purchase if interested.
