Property description

Charming, completely renovated 3 bedroom cottage on South Lake Leelanau. Spacious, modern kitchen, two decks, a sleeping gazebo and an outdoor shower.

Cozy Bay offers private, pastoral views across this beautiful lake. There's a firepit at the lake edge for sunset viewing and marshmallow toasting. Very kid/family friendly with lots of fun activities in nearby Sutton's Bay, Leland, Cedar, Traverse City, and Sleeping Bear Dunes National Seashore. Veronica Valley, a newly established county park, is within walking distance.

The cottage is situated on a private road off #641, 4 mi. south of the village of Lake Leelanau. Privately owned and operated.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

Why the Owner Chose Lake Leelanau:
I bought Cozy Bay Cottage in May of 2006. I love 'The Leelanau' peninsula! It reminds me a bit of Point Reyes in northern California. I think it has something to do with rolling hills free of development and stunning vistas of distant blue water.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Finding my way along back country roads reminds me of another era. The peace and quiet harks back to a simpler time which is how I think of my childhood in the 1950's. People here are less in a hurry than they are even in Ann Arbor which is not a big city. And I love how everyone who lives here knows or is related to everyone else. Of course the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Seashore is incomparable. One must see it to appreciate it.
