Our Property

This beautiful rustic-modern bungalow-lodge was originally built in the 1940's by Traverse City writer and historian, Larry Wakefield.  The original cedar cabin was heated by a wood fireplace, and had no indoor facilities.  


Larry and Lucille Wakefield were mink farmers, as well as splendid gardeners.  We are reminded daily of their labors, enjoying the spirea, forsythia, violets, fruit trees, flowering bulbs, and ivy.  Larry was also a historical writer.  We have several of his books in each room:


                                       Traverse City Post Card History


                                        The Mystery of the Missing Nun


                                       Ernest Hemingway Fished Here


                                       Ghost Towns of Michigan   









We have a large deck facing the water, so you can enjoy the view!

The property is located on beautiful M-22 in Leelanau County, minutes from Traverse City, Suttons Bay, local wineries, several boat launches, excellent restaurants, the TART trail, Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes, the Cherry Festival, and the Film Festival.  Bikes and kayaks are available for rent in Traverse City and Suttons Bay.
