About the owners:
Kurt & Emily Burritt
We love to travel and have done so extensively with our two
children. We have logged over 20,000 miles in our RV while
taking our children to all fifty states yet Traverse City is still
considered one of the most beautiful places in the country in
our book. We love spending time at the cabin!
Why the Owner Chose Traverse City:
As a native of Traverse City, I grew up enjoying the lakes around the area. I was thrilled when Kurt and I had the chance to buy this log cabin on Silver Lake. We worked hard to update it by adding modern amenities without losing the character and charm and that 'up-north' feel. It's exactly the kind of place I would want to stay if I were looking for a rental in Traverse City right on the lake. It is just ten minutes to downtown, yet you feel like you are away from it all. Traverse City offers such a great quality of life along with many wonderful local shops and restaurants to enjoy. Spend a day touring the wineries or tasting the variety of local beers from the micro-breweries.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
It's quiet, it's peaceful and it's only ten minutes from downtown Traverse City to the North and Interlochen Arts Academy to the South. The loons and the frogs will lull you to sleep at night and the muskrat and ducks will welcome you during the day.
Our favorite thing to do during our stay at the cabin is pack up a picnic lunch and take a cruise around the lake on the pontoon boat. With the boat conveniently docked at the private sandy beach, there is little effort to enjoying the beauty of Silver Lake. This pristine, all sports lake, is the closest lake to Traverse City with easy access to everything. Our evenings usually consist of cooking delicious steaks from our family market, Burritt's Fresh Market while watching the fabulous sunsets. We always end the evening with a campfire next to the lake listening to the frogs and loons. Life doesn't get any better than that!
