Enjoy true relaxation and peacefulness along the Boardman River!! Sit in our hot tub while listening to the tranquil river and watching the stars. Our single family home was built in 1955 along the quiet and peaceful setting of The Boardman River. The Boardman River starts in Kalkaska County and flows directly into the West Grand Traverse Bay. It's best known as one of the Top 10 Trout Streams in Michigan!

The house is located in a quiet, scenic and wildlife friendly location. There is plenty of acreage to hike, bird watch and explore! Still a short drive to the heart of Downtown Traverse City, you can have the best of both rural life and city life during your stay. If you are wanting a get away with the family, or a retreat with your closest friends this cabin is perfect for you.

As you come up the driveway you are immediately greeted by large trees and a view of the river along the house. Our home sits on a bend, allowing for the river to flow on either side of the home. Stepping inside the high ceiling and original log cabin walls will stun your eyes, they are so charming! Our uniquely styled house has a large fireplace with pudding stones and Petoskey stones set along each side. The living room is spacious and bright, with a great view of the forest and river and plenty of space for your friends and family to gather. The kitchen is straight ahead to your right as you walk in, fully equipped with anything you may need during your stay just behind the living room. Windows surround the house allowing bright natural light to soak the cabin walls, it truly feels magical.

On the second floor there is one bedroom with a king bed and a spacious storage area. Beside the bedroom is a large full bathroom with a tub for any relaxing, or spa nights you may have planned for your perfect getaway.

All three other beds are on the lower level, this includes; the master bedroom with a king size bed and ensuite, a second bedroom with a king size bed and an additional sleeping option is in our four season sunroom holding a futon. Down the hallway to get to the bedrooms downstairs you may notice warmth on your feet. The entire floor in the back of the house has heated tiling which makes the cabin even more comfortable and cozy. In the back of the house you’ll see there is plenty of storage space for food, items you may have brought with you, and the laundry units available for your use.

Outside you will see a deck with patio furniture that views the water, as well as our hot tub area! We have a lot of deer, and other wild life around the house, all we ask is that you will respect the house and wildlife as if they were your own.

At booking, you will receive a curated guide to our neighborhood from Bayshore Vacation Rentals!
