Lakeview Retreat Cottage is across a small, dead-end street from Duck Lake. The cottage has a nice view of the lake and is only about 150 feet from a public dock access. The location is ideal for visiting many surrounding areas including Traverse City, Frankfort, Suttons Bay, Leland, and Empire. Our guests have enjoyed watching the sunrises on the lake, sunsets at Lake Michigan, and exploring our beautiful area.

The space

Lakeview Retreat Cottage has beautiful hardwood floors and comfortable beds. We also offer an outside area including a hammock, gas grill, a picnic table, and a campfire area with chairs. Duck Lake is very clean and guests can bring kayaks, paddle boards, or other water "toys" to enjoy the lake. There are also many beautiful hiking and biking trails.

Guest access

Guests have full access to the cottage, the yard, and the public access to the lake. The neighborhood is also a great place for taking walks and there is a wooded path close by that leads into the state park.

Interaction with guests

I like to meet my guests upon arrival to give them a quick tour and to answer any questions. My husband and I live across the street from the cottage so it is easy for us to be available if guests need anything during their stay. I keep my phone with me and encourage guests to text me any time they need something.

Other things to note

We have an antennae hooked to the large flat screen TV which picks up about 11 channels, but we don't have cable. I keep an HDMI cable hooked up for our guests to use. If you would like to bring a laptop, you can hook that to the flat screen and stream movies or other channels that you have accounts to using our wi-fi.

A lovely cosy cottage located right on the heart of Interlochen. Great for solo travelers or families. Toni was a terrific host. I look forward to visiting again and would make this charming cottage my preferred place to stay.

I am an elementary school teacher. I live in Interlochen and I love everything Interlochen has to offer. My husband and I water ski, swim, snow ski, enjoy walking in the state park with our dog, and going to concerts at the Arts Academy.
