Relax in this beautifully maintained traditional cottage that is located on a quiet spot on the western shore of S. Lake Leelanau. There is a beach and dock (to hook up your boat), as well as the use of a double kayak and canoe. The landscaping around the cottage is gorgeous, and the patio is a perfect spot to enjoy your meals while taking in the lovely view of the lake. There also is an outdoor fireplace on the patio.
This cottage has four bedrooms and comfortably sleeps eight (2 queen and 4 twin beds). There are two full baths, a spacious living room with a bay window overlooking the lake, plus a large fully equipped kitchen and an inside washer and dryer. Both bathrooms and the kitchen have recently been remodeled.
The incredible natural beauty of Leelanau County makes this a popular vacation spot. All ages can find much to do - visit Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes, canoe or kayak down a river, bike around the beautiful country roads, hike the many spectacular trails, take a ferry to the Manitou Islands, enjoy many gorgeous beaches, explore wine country, as well as, great restaurants, shopping and art fairs. Lake Leelanau is 23 miles long and is delightful for boating, with or without a motor. The lake doesn't get too crowded so water sports can easily be enjoyed - skiing, tubing, jet skiing, fishing, sailing and more.
While there is much to do in the area, you will want to spend time at the cottage. The beach and dock offer both sun and shade. The beach has plenty of room for kids to play. There is a large yard for lots of space to play games (badminton or croquet,) and a swing set. This cottage offers fun and relaxing times in a beautiful setting.

About the owner: I have stayed at this cottage every summer since I was born. The cottage and all of Leelanau County are incredibly beautiful. I grew up with cousins who stayed in cottages nearby, so we all have many wonderful memories of growing together in this paradise. We continue to make more memories. I am an artist (mostly landscapes) and Leelanau County has always been a tremendous source of inspiration.
Why the Owner Chose Lake Leelanau: This cottage was built by my great grand father. My children are the fifth generation to enjoy it.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: The piece of land the cottage is on is quite gorgeous. We have 133' of lake front and the view is wonderful. It's a very quiet and tranquil spot. Having easy access to so many things to do has always kept our time there interesting and fun. More recently, I have gotten into kayaking and I think Lake Leelanau is a great place to do it.
