Leland house description

Classic 1930's cottage within four blocks of downtown Leland.

House is set on 125+ feet of sandy beach on Lake Michigan, and overlooks both North and South Manitou islands. Panoramic views. Beautiful sunsets. Quiet street, easy walk to center of town, shops, restaurants, grocery store, and FishTown. Walking distance to anywhere in Leland. Worthwhile day-trips (via car) include hiking to Pyramid Point and experiencing the spectacular view there, or navigating Pierce Stocking Drive to see the various views from the car - with a couple of must-see mini-hikes along the way..

Home features warm pine paneling, with a designer kitchen, an adjoining breakfast nook, living room, a covered porch, and an outside deck. Off the master bedroom upstairs is a balcony overlooking Lake Michigan. With comfortable furniture and flowers, it's an extra summer/fall room. Spectacular views and sunsets await. House is peaceful and quiet.

Bedrooms are as pictured, with one exception: the downstairs street-side converted maid's room, day bed with trundle underneath - best suited (under 'truth in advertising') for patient adults and/or children.

September and October are spectacular in Leland: crowds are thinner, usually warmer cays and cooler nights, tree colors abound in October. Reduced rates after Labor Day.

          Other Amenities

              • The house was built in 1930, and has the charm of an older house. Although modernized about ten years ago, it lacks some of the more modern amenities: AC and a pantry, for example. The house comfortably sleeps 8; more than that is going to seem cramped - let's be honest here. And for a week you can deal with it. If you want a comfortable house, not your typical rental property, Cedarwood is for you: quiet, attractive, and well-located. And right on the beach. Thanks for considering it....moreless
