Northport cottage description

MI Northern Spot: This is a peaceful relaxing area right on Grand Traverse Bay at the mouth of Lake Michigan. Stretch out on the hammock or dine outside. Quiet spot on the east side of West Grand Traverse Bay on the tip of Leelanau Peninsula. This is an area of great natural beauty and serenity, yet it’s only 6 miles north of the quaint village of Northport where you can find great food, Tom's Grocery Store, Barb's Bakery, gift and clothing stores. The marina is a great place to have a picnic, enjoy live music in the summer or the great beach/park for family fun.

This 3 bedroom 1 bath has room for up to 10. There are two bedrooms upstairs including the master with a king sized bed and the second with bunk beds and an extra twin-sized mattress. The downstairs bedroom is a large room with a queen sized bed and 2 twins, For extra sleeping capacity, the living room features a full sized pullout sofa.

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything for cooking and eating. There is a washer and dryer and towels and bedding are provided. The cottage has 60 ft of private frontage on Grand Traverse Bay / Lake Michigan, which guests can explore from our rowboat or canoe and/or enjoy nightly campfires on our beach.

We are located only two miles south of the Leelanau State Park and Grand Traverse Lighthouse where you will find lighthouse tours, demonstrations, picnic and playgrounds, beaches and miles of hiking/skiing trails. The subdivision amenities include shared access with four waterfront parks on Grand Traverse Bay / Lake Michigan, forty acres of hiking trails, playground, basketball court, and tennis courts. There is also a large clubhouse that can be reserved for social or family events. We have a variety of bicycles available for your use during your stay.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About the owner: My children and I love the peace and tranquility of the great north.

                  Why the Owner Chose Northport:
                  We started looking for a lake house in West Michigan this, and I came across a listing for a house in Northport, Michigan on-line. I loved the idea of having a place 'up north', and my dream became reality. We have enjoyed many mini-vacations since then. We rent it because I work and don't get to get up there as often as I like. The first thing my kids do when we visit 'the blue house' is open the guest book to see how our friends enjoyed the place while we were gone.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  We love swimming, wave jumping, and just spending lazy days at the beach.
