New fridge, range & beach updates on top of major bathroom and kitchen renovations are just in time for your stay! Gaze outdoors through floor-to-ceiling windows looking out at a tranquil lake and the woods beyond. Step outdoors and fish, toast s'mores by the lake, or take a hike. Drive 10 minutes to Grand Traverse Bay, where (depending on the weather!) you can wander, climb frozen waves or cross-country ski on groomed trails or, eventually, swim and sunbathe. It's easy to relax and play when you've left your to-do list behind. Come enjoy: --a light-filled open-plan design with a breakfast bar (ideal for sharing company, whether cooking, reading, or playing) and completely updated bathroom; --master bedroom with sliding glass doors leading to a private deck overlooking the lake; --second bedroom with two new sets of solid wood twin over full bunk beds; --fully equipped kitchen with a new fridge and range, plus a well stocked kitchen, from an espresso machine, French Press, pancake griddle, Kitchen Aid mixer and crock pot to condiments, spices (fresh herbs growing in season), and basics to get you started before you run to the store down the block; -- a hammock by the water, fishing off the dock, single and double kayaks, a canoe, and floats; --and many, many ideas of where and how to play, found in our 40-page welcome letter plus an overflowing file box of northwest Michigan maps and brochures. Enjoy what our son lovingly named our Hanley Lake Hideaway and a regular guest calls 'our little slice of heaven.'More

Interaction with guests
There's a key in a lockbox that will get you into the house. We have a 40+-page welcome letter that will tell you all you could need (and more!) about the cottage, the area, and places to go. We include our favorites and those of our guests. And we have a caretaker down the road if you have a problem.

About the neighbourhood
Neighbors are a mixture of vacationers and year-round residents and rarely heard or seen. You're down a curving driveway the village road so the 'traffic' is occasional passing cars and occasional passing fishing boats (ice fishing in winter!) or, weather permitting, passing pontoons. The village of Central Lake is adorable. Minutes away, visit restaurants, cafes, a spectacular brewpub, Shanty Creek's championship golf courses (and ski slopes); indoor putt-putt, and a movie theatre. Delight in a fall stay in our supremely well-insulated home-away-from-home. Bike, drive or meander along winding country roads. Pick apples. Watch the colors turn. Fish for bass, pike, perch, walleye and more. Rent a pontoon or motor boat right down the road or bring your own. Stroll down the road to a l...
Getting around
You can walk into the village of Central Lake, which is less than a mile away (or take a kayak or canoe!) For other jaunts, you'll want a car.
