Come prepared to make memories together at this spacious sanctuary in the woods, just one mile from the Interlochen Center for the Arts!
Interlochen's location is central to much of northern Michigan and makes it an easy drive to Traverse City, four seasons of fun at Crystal Mountain, or the scenery and wineries of the Old Mission Peninsula or Leelanau County. And no trip "up north" would be complete without a day at the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes/National Lakeshore! Explore Glen Arbor, Leland, Suttons Bay, Empire, and Northport in neighboring Leelanau County. Set out on a shopping trip to the villages of Petoskey or Charlevoix. Enjoy Torch Lake, which National Geographic named as the world's third most beautiful lake. The beauty and splendor of the area make it a four-season mecca for artists, photographers, and nature lovers!
The home's modern, open-concept main level features a show-stopping fireplace, handcrafted of stone from a local farmer's fields. Spacious gathering areas offer plenty of room to spread out, relax, and feel comfortable. Maybe you'd like to catch up on some reading? Settle into the cozy reading nook upstairs, and enjoy one of the many books (including children's books) from the home's library. This home has something for everyone--it's perfect for families, friends, or retreat groups, yet cozy enough for a couples getaway.
