Sweet cottage on private Indian Lake 10 mi. from downtown Traverse City.
The cottage is set off the road with a house on one side with a tall privacy fence, and nature on the other side of the cottage. The lake is great for viewing waterfowl, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, and or sitting out at the campfire and looking at the natural beauty of the setting. (It is not a swimming lake.)
