Lake Leelanau house description
South Lake Leelanau is the Best of Both Worlds - a sought after Fishing Lake and an All-Water Sports Lake. Lake Leelanau, being a natural spring fed lake that flows into Lake Michigan at the dam in Leland, is simply beautiful in itself. Sleeping Bear Dunes is a short drive from the cottage and won 2011 GMA 'Most Beautiful Place in America' contest.
There is nothing like sitting on the deck while sipping your morning coffee and catching the sun's first glistening rays of the day peek across the lake. Watch the kids swim right out in front of the cottage 20 feet to the water, while the guys troll for a walleye.
We spent $9000.00 in Spring 2010 updating the cottage, taking out walls in kitchen, new flooring, and new windows. Winter 2011 we remodeled the bathroom, installed new tile, cabinets, pocket door to improve the bathroom.
You will feel right at home in our cottage with a TV, DVD,VCR, Cable, Internet Connection, a well equipped kitchen, newer stove Maytag Gemini double oven. You'll love our 20 x 25' deck that faces the lake stacked with seating, chairs and newer gas grill. There is also a lawn swing by the shoreline. Nice sandy lake bottom swimming area no rocks or muck.
We put out 120 feet of dock and it's shallow and a hard sandy bottom all the way past the dock - wonderful for swimming and just playing in the water! Drag a chair around the fire pit for an evening campfire by the lake.
Bring your boat and tie up to our dock. The public boat ramp is just 2 miles north of the cottage. There are several spots to travel to by boat (or car). Lakeside at Perrins Landing is fun to stop or gas, get a Coney dog or a long beach. Dick's in Lake Leelanau is always a must for lunch or supper. And a trip to Lake Leelanau would never be complete without the trip to Leland for ice cream/shop/eat!
We are sure you will fall in love with Lake Leelanau too!

Great location! Needs a new cleaning crew
Great location! Needs a new cleaning crew
This property was an ideal location for our family wedding. The view of the lake was fantastic. The photos are an accurate portrait of the place. BUT- was very disappointed that the first thing we had to do was clean up after the last tenants. After calling the owner, we found out that the last tenenats chose not to pay the cleaning fee and were going to clean themselves. We had to clean out a full fridge and wipe down all of the counters and table. This did not take care of the small hairs on all of the couches. It looked like there was a dog in the house. The beds were also covered in dog hair and a few insects. The owner needs to get a better cleaning crew to do a thorough cleaning. If that is done, It would be a wonderful place to visit. I would recommend this if you want to stay right on the lake. It is 45 minutes from Traverse City and 30 minutes from Sutton Bay. We chose this property because of the location and the price. It satisfied both. Just wish it was cleaner.

We stayed at this cottage the week of July 18-25 and had a great time. The neighbors are very friendly and helpful. We had 6 adult people plus two dogs and fit comfortably. Plenty of parking even for our boat trailer. The long dock was very convenient for our boat.

About the owner: Michigan is wonderful year round, with several sports to keep you busy
Why the Owner Chose Lake Leelanau:
Great location, waterfront home with nice sandy lake bottom and clear water. Nice vacation area near winery, and remote country area. Watch out for the deer, turkey, ducks, fox while driving in the area! Yet 20 min drive to major city of Traverse City MI with all the shopping needed. You can also head the other direction to remote 'fish town' of Lealand on lake Michigan, the Sleeping Bear Dunes are just a short drive away and won the 2011 Good Morning America 'Most Beautiful Place in America' contest.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Watch the sunrise over the lake from the living room of our home. Nice area to take a morning walk, run or bike and get ready for the day. Well off any main road and away from traffic on a private road.
