A stunning private island near Traverse City knows as "Namaste Island" has hit the market.
Owner Linda Fletcher says the island won't disappoint.
According to WPBN:
"Linda Fletcher has put her Grand Traverse County island on the market. It's a seven-acre island, that's about a half mile long in a crescent shape. It's located on Bass Lake just a few miles west of Traverse City.
It has a countless unique physical features, but it's one that's harder to spot that really stands out to Linda.
She says "the thing about this island that is most compelling is the feeling that you get when you step on the island. There is a different energy."
Linda claims the island has a rich history, from its time as a significant Native American location up through playing host to a visiting Van Cliburn, who practiced in the cabin before taking the stage at nearby Interlochen."
The listing says:
"This newly renovated cabin on a 7.5 acre private island is a luxury retreat. Some 900 feet from shore, it is just far enough away from the mainland to provide privacy and seclusion without being remote....electrical power is provided by the local power company.
There is limited parking available on the shore lot and a public launch for your own private boat is visible from the island. The island is located almost within the Traverse City limits and it does have a Traverse City address, although it is close to the Interlochen School of Arts where many big name concerts are held throughout the year.
The island is heavily wooded and provides wonderful paths for walking. The sunrises and sunsets are magnificent and the moonlight and stars reflecting on the lake, which can be seen from your bed, defy description. And...in July there are wild blueberries for picking."
