Periodically we’ll feature one of our properties here to let our readers know about some great gay friendly places to stay.
The cottage is nicely situated with wooded Lakeshore (Lake Michigan) land behind us and across Long Lake, and just 1/2 an hour from Traverse City. We are blessed with a quiet Lake and quiet neighbors, with enough trees to afford a lot of privacy.
The cottage has one bedroom with a queen bed and good storage space. There is a small extra sleeping room, which we call the Nest. It is, literally, the size of a queen sized bed and has a view of the lake. This cottage is the perfect size for a small family, a couple, or 2-4 good friends. The living room, dining room, and kitchen are an open floor plan, anchored at one end by a fireplace for heat and ambience and on the other end by a sliding glass door and windows overlooking the lake. The cottage is supplied by perfectly good well water, but for taste we recommend that visitors bring bottled water.
Ursa Minor Vacation Rental Cottagecan be rented from early spring through late fall. Our fully equipped kitchen includes a microwave, blender, coffee maker, mixer and toaster oven, but no dishwasher or disposer. Bed linens and pillows are provided. For summer use, we have a rowboat and accessories, lawn chairs, and a Weber Grill. Charcoal is provided. We also provide a telephone, washer/dryer, radio/CD player, VCR and a small TV. If you prefer not to cook, the locally famous Manitou Restaurant is within a 3/4 mile walk.
