House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-6)
I am an original vacation rental 'owner' on Bass Lake! I have been renting out this home for 18 years as a vacation property, it is the only property that I have and it is my pride and joy! Along with my husband, we have done many renovations to the home and property over the years. It is modern but with a cottage feeling. The neighborhood is definitely the place to be! I refer to it as my own little piece of Heaven. Most of the residents in the area have been here for quite some time. It is located off of the 'beaten path' but is still close to everything! I have put a lot of thought into the rental with the intention of making your vacation as easy and enjoyable for you as possible. From linens to everything you might need in the kitchen as well as firewood and life vests are just a few of the no charge extras that I provide. It is exactly as it is advertised, no surprises! Should a problem or question arise, we reside across the street from the rental and are always a phone call away. You will never have to deal with a rental manager or agency. Previous guests have thanked me and provided me several flattering comments about The Bass Lake Lodge. Please review my "comments" from previous guests to see how truly special it really is. I hope you will be as excited to vacation at The Bass Lake Lodge as I am to live in this wonderful area!
Jennifer purchased this House in 1995
Why Jennifer chose Traverse City
Originally built by my Father and Grandfather, the home has been part of my family for many years. Over that time, it has been remodeled and reflects all the creature comforts for you to enjoy. I grew up down the street from the home, then resided in it for several years until a job transfer moved me out of town. At which time I turned it into a vacation rental. Since then, I have moved back and now live across the street from the rental. Bass Lake is a wonderful, quiet lake. (Mostly pontoon boats, fishing boats and kayakers.) The home has a great view to the east; looking at Kennard Island. The sunrises are nothing short of amazing!
What makes this House unique
The Bass Lake Lodge is in a quiet, friendly neighborhood that is conveniently located to Traverse City, Interlochen and many other area attractions. It is set on a 343 acre, all sports lake which offers great fishing, beautiful views and lots of wildlife. The rental is filled with lots of extra amenities that will make your vacation that much better! The rental has a fantastic view of the sunrise as well. And, I live nearby in case you need anything special.
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Better than advertised!
We loved the place! Was better than the pictures even!
Everything as expected
A very nice place managed by very nice people. Everything went nearly flawlessly, and we had a great vacation. I would recommend this place to anyone.
Great place to stay!
We had a great time - the lodge was clean and well-stocked, and the hosts were responsive and friendly. Would definitely stay here again!
Thank you! It was a pleasure to have you be our guests!
We loved our stay! Jennifer is a great host - the cabin was very clean and cozy, with pretty much everything we needed. It’s conveniently located near Traverse City and Interlochen and served as the perfect “base camp” for our ice fishing trip. We even tried our hand on the all-sports lake behind the house. It was a wonderful trip!
Cozy and clean cabin by the lake!
Jennifer was a pleasure to work with - and left such a thoughtful welcome basket! The Bass Lake Lodge was clean, comfortable and felt like home. The fireplace was great and warmed up a chilly November weekend. Good memories!
Lovely sunrises in beautiful cabin
Enjoyed the beautiful view of the lake especially each morning at sunrise! Cabin is updated, spacious, immaculate and thoughfully supplied with cooking utensils/pans and really just about anything else you didn’t know you needed! Location is picturesque and convenient to get to many sites around the area (lots of literature provided by owner for ideas and directions). Owner (Jennifer) is very gracious and I feel like she would be quick to respond to any needs or issues (we had none due to her thoroughness in explaining workings around cabin). A place comfortable for all ages: large deck, fire pit, a place to fish (and poles), very easy access to lake. Loved it!
