Lake Leelanau cottage description

PLEASE CHECK OUR AVAILABILITY CALENDAR TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT!
Located on beautiful Kelenski Point, this spacious cottage (2,350 square feet) is perfect for family vacations. Inside, it has lots of living area, plenty of bathrooms, a fully-equipped kitchen, a fireplace, and a wet bar, as well as central air conditioning. Outside, the large attached deck, complete with grill, picnic tables, and patio furniture, overlooks the lawn and 100 feet of firm, direct frontage on one of Michigan's best lakes - clean, clear, all-sports Lake Leelanau. Use of the dock, two-person kayak, and rowboat are included with your rental. Shallow water by the shore and dock is perfect for wading and swimming, and a drop-off about 100 yards from shore is a popular spot for fishing.

Please see our web-site below for more details.

Many Cottage Amenities: We have a fully-equipped kitchen (including refrigerator/freezer with ice maker, cook top, oven, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker and other small appliances, cooking utensils, and kitchen towels) which opens to both the dining room and very large living room. The living room overlooks the lake and has a TV (cable) and DVD/VCR, as well as a wood-burning fireplace and wet bar. The bonus room, with its sofa, TV (cable), DVD/VCR, and 4-in-1 game table, means there is always something to do, even if the weather doesn't cooperate. Use our book, game, puzzle, video, and DVD collections, or bring your own. Our half acre lot provides plenty of space for outdoor games (Bocce anyone?) and gathering around the fire pit in the evenings. Central air conditioning keeps you cool on even the hottest summer days!

Please see our web-site below for more details.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About the owner: Beautiful sunrises start the day off right!

                  Why the Owner Chose Lake Leelanau:
                  Our family loves Lake Leelanau, and has been vacationing here since 1995. For a long time, our girls thought 'vacation' and 'Leelanau' meant the same thing! After years of dreaming and looking, we were finally able to purchase our cottage in late 2006, and love having our own special place in Leelanau.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Being on Kelenski Point means we have a beautiful, peaceful setting with fantastic views of the lake. We are close to all our favorite spots (Fishtown, Suttons Bay, the Dunes Lakeshore), as well as Traverse City, with its more urban vibe. Really, it's the best of both worlds!
