Amazing Northern Michigan Homes: Boardman River Rustic Log Cabin

Just outside Traverse City is a gorgeous log home that sits on the banks of the Boardman River.

Between the main house, guest house, the two garages and sauna there is plenty of space to work, play and get together with family and friends.

“This would be a great home for somebody who wants to be a part of Northern Michigan nature, fishing is fantastic here,” said Kim Costanza, real estate agent for Coldwell Banker.

This cozy, rustic cabin is perfectly placed on the outskirts of Traverse City along the lovely Boardman River.

“Part of the acreage goes across the other side of the river and then also back in the other direction across Ron’s Creek,” said Kim. “It’s a beautiful piece of property with the main house, a garage that has an apartment over the top and then also a heated garage across the street.”

No matter where you go on this ten acre lot, you’ll always be within view or earshot of this soothing stream.

“The view is outstanding and the river you can sit out there or even sit up on the deck and hear it running by,” she said. “There is a spot out there for a fire pit and so summer, winter it’s just a gorgeous place to park and enjoy.”

You can even enjoy the river view from one of the balconies off the master suite.

The huge master takes up the entire second floor and comes with a pellet stove and jetted tub.

“There’s certainly plenty of room that you could drywall it off if you wanted to have a second room up there but if you’re happy with the big, open master you’ve got gorgeous views all the way around,” said Kim.

This is also the perfect gathering spot for friends and family.

The garage doubles as a guest house with a full kitchen, living room, bed and bath and the main house is the right size for everyone to spread out and still stay close.

“It’s generous in size and space while still allowing for that family togetherness,” she said. “You can be in the kitchen making dinner but still know what’s going on in the rest of the house, which is why I say I think it’s a great gathering place. This home is perfect for that.”
