8169 S Outer Dr, Traverse City // MAC Custom Homes 231.935.4609, maccustomhomes.com
A handsome vinyl shake and board-and-batten exterior encloses an upscale traditional cottage-style on the main floor and a more casual Up North cottage feel on the lower level. Among the must-see features of this home are an octagonal sunroom, handsome stone fireplace, blue and white Utopia granite kitchen countertops that look like the sky, corrugated metal wet bar, built-in beds and entertainment center and an inlaid compass rose in the foyer floor. Set on Long Lake on the picturesque Long Lake Peninsula, this home is a trip into Northern Michigan’s classic cottage country.
