Vacationing on Bass is so special. As an inland spring fed all sports lake the feeling of connecting with nature is unlike any other place I've been. Why it's so different;  The Cottage faces west and provides amazing Sunsets!!!!! Bass Lake has a boat launch for locals that has no place to park a trailer for the day, so most daily boaters are over at busy Long Lake. The fact that there is less boat and jetski traffic keeps it quieter, and more peaceful with less wake and safer for kyaks and SUP boards. With less boat and jetski traffic on a day without wind, you may catch the water 'still' it's a unique view of the lake. The lake is full of wildlife that you just don't get to experience elsewhere. There are two bald eagles that live on the small island, you'll see Cranes, Buffleheads, and Loons and hear their calls, Owls at night while star gazing.... Kids can fish off the dock. There are local companies that rent boats and deliver them on-site!

What to do in Michigan - Pure Michigan Traverse City

What to do in Michigan - Pure Michigan Traverse City

Booking a trip to TC? - Start here - 👍 😘 P L E A S E • S U B S C R I B E - 💃 🕺 Traverse City, Michigan is a gem in the midwest with it's cherry festival and plenty of places to go. This water front city is surrounded by endless miles of lakefront shoreline - this is pure Michigan. Traverse City is a top summer destination for all to enjoy. If you're planning on visiting TC, be sure to allow ample time during your trip because your schedule will quickly fill up. While everyone knows about the amazing water activities like wakeboarding, water skiing, paddle boarding, and the infamous Torch Lake sand bar; however, Traverse city has great micro breweries, wineries, restaurants, and hiking as well. During our time in TC, we were amazed with how much the city had to offer. If you're looking to get outdoors, be sure to make your way to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. This national park is unlike any other with 450 food dunes towering over the majestic lake Michigan. While at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park, be sure to do the Dune Climb and the Pierce Stocking scenic drive. If you decide to do the Dune Climb, be prepaired for a strenuous 3-4 hour hike that culminates with a dip in cool lake Michigan. Breweries we visited: Left foot Charlie Winery The Filling Station Brewery - loved the pizza The Workshop brewery - great beer and food Right Brain Brewery - has an indoor bowling machine Our full blog: Thanks for watching!
