Our secluded cabin is in the midst of wine country on Old Mission Peninsula just 12 miles north of Traverse City, Mi. It's the perfect destination for families needing a cozy respite from their hectic 'down-state' life. Bring your bikes and your sense of adventure or just a book to read. The Mission Ridge cabin is 750 sq ft of small house living but fully equipped for your get-away. Local ordinance requires a 30 day minimum rental: ask for details

Guest access

You will have full access to a beautiful natural sandy beach on Lake Michigan. It's a lovely 78! wooden steps down the staircase to our beach so be ready for a bit of a hike, but so worth it when you arrive at the large secluded deck overlooking the lake. A few more steps (8) and you are in lovely Grand Traverse Bay!

Interaction with guests

Depending on your reservation dates, I will be available to stop by as requested to answer any questions or make suggestions for an enjoyable Traverse City adventure.

Other things to note

This area is well known for road biking - the car traffic is fairly tame and the views are terrific. Bring your bicycle. Mountain biking trails are also plentiful and beautiful.

We couldn't have had better hosts or a more beautiful serene area for our first Air BNB experience. The cabin is comfortable and well equipped. The setting is awesome! The area offers a great sandy beach, hiking trails, lovely wineries and nice parks. This is a perfect place for smelling the roses. I highly recommend David and his charming cabin.

My wife and I, along with our dog, loved this secluded cabin in the woods. David is an excellent host and the setting could not have been better. You would never know this cabin exists from the road as it is hidden in the forest, but for us, it was a slice of paradise with the woods and the bay surrounding us in tranquility. Excellent hidden gem and great people too.
