Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: Steve grew up vacationing on Lake Leelanau as a child for 3 weeks every summer just down the road from this home. Several of our uncles/aunts also rented cottages and it brought about wonderful memories or the Lake; playing with cousins; fishing and exploring on Lake Leelanau; experiencing all the wonders of the Lake and the surrounding area. When I had the opportunity to purchase a vacation home, this was the ONLY location I wanted. Still to this day I am amazed about the beauty of Leelanau County!
Why the Owner Chose Traverse City: The location is within 1/3 mile of where my family vacationed every year. For me, this was the only place to be. The lake bottom is beautiful sugar sand for 170 feet to the dropoff. Children can play in shallow; clean; sandy water for a long distance without fear of deep water. The beautiful views from the property down and across the lake make this one of the scenic areas of Lake Leelanau.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The home we have labored over is absolutely unique - you will not find another like it. From the full lake view from almost every room in the house; to the balconies overlooking the lake; to the full wrap-around porch all with beautiful full views of Lake Leelanau. The materials used in construction are all premium. Beautiful T&G pine throughout the house; beautiful hardwood floors; high-end gourmet kitchen; awesome stone fireplace and a beautiful office if you need to get a bit of work done. All bedding is high-end, affording a premium sleeping experience (we receive many 'thank you's' regarding the comfort of our bedding). We personally provide the cleaning, and present an immaculately clean and sanitized house. You will be completely satisfied with the cleanliness of this home. The surrounding landscaping is beautiful with a combination flowers; flowering plants and trees - all perfectly kept and maintained. You won't find landscaping at a home for rent like this anywhere. We maintain the property completely ourselves.
