River Pitch Cottage

Your Boardman River relaxing getaway!  With 600 ft. of frontage, the home sits on 2+ acres, steps away from the yearlong beauty of the Boardman River. The Boardman River is a 28.2-mile long river that flows into the west arm of the Grand Traverse Bay in Traverse City, Michigan that is considered to be one of the top trout streams in Michigan. This 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom (along with an open loft) home is located on a secluded and quiet lot with plenty of room for outdoor activities. A nice outdoor grilling area and fire pit make the yard perfect for gathering. Along with the wrap around porch, you always have a beautiful view of the river.


This home is the perfect basecamp for an adventurous trip. Within a 2-minute drive to the Edwards Nature Preserve (a great option for an easy & beautiful walk) and the Brown Bridge Quiet Area.  At only 5 minutes from the Mayfield Road trailhead at East Creek Reserve, it also makes the perfect home base in the winter for snowmobiles to access the 80 miles of trails in the Boardman Valley. Arbutus Lake is only 5 miles away and numerous portages right along the Boardman river for kayaking and canoeing (detailed notes provided upon booking). 

Less than 20 minutes to the heart of Downtown Traverse City, 25 minutes to the GLEF and only 7 minutes to “Chums Corner” where you can find grocery stores, gas stations, restaurants, and more!

 Walking in to the main house, you will enter our cozy living room with plenty of seating and the open kitchen (eat in option, or dining room table as well). Following down the main floor hall, you will find a full bathroom, and two bedrooms with great closet space. Each room provided with TV and ceiling fans. A bonus feature of the main home is the loft area- which is perfectly set up for little ones! After climbing a small ship ladder, you will be in the spacious loft, featuring two twin beds and an ideal play area for kids.

 Much of your time will likely be spent outside enjoying this beautiful tract of land and the Boardman River. Outside of the main home you will find ample yard with panoramic views of the Boardman River. You will find our large fire pit, outdoor BBQ pit, gas grill, patio dining table set for 6, provided canoes, and plenty of grassy area for activities!
