Lake Leelanau cottage description

This family lakefront property has been in the Stanton family for four generations. The original log cabin was replaced in the early 1980s by an architect designed spacious house that can comfortably hold a crowd or be intimate enough for a small group. It is situated on a large lakefront lot on the eastern shore of North Lake Leelanau with private woods to the south and deck overlooking the lake. The sunsets are breathtaking. This house provides easy access to the water with a long pier and unique recreational dock. Boat launch is just 1/2 a mile down the road from the house. We also enjoy the only private marina on the lake so guests can easily dock their boats, ski-dos or a pontoon boat (available for rental in Lake Leelanau). The lakefront area is safe and easy for swimming and the water is crystal clear. There is no sandy beach at our site, but Netto's Beach is reachable by boat right across the lake. Sunny rear patio is great for windy days and is off the kitchen for easy outdoor cooking. There is an outdoor shower and a fire pit for lakefront campfires.
The house includes:
a large, comfortable master bedroom with private bath.
Guest bedroom with two twin beds and semi-private full bath.
And two great bunk rooms with eight twin beds total and a full bath.
LARGE lake viewing living/dining room with seating for LOTS of people inside, not including all the outside areas for BBQ. The sunsets from the house are unimaginable.
The house is set up with quiet and social zones so kids and adults can enjoy the house and not be on top of each other. ALSO, owner is offering access to a unique tree house campsite on an adjacent property that overlooks their private ten acre meadow. Location is across the road from the Lake House (easy walking distance). The Lake House a one of a kind place that is rarely available for rental. You'll love it. We do.

              Location

              EXPERIENCE THE BEAUTIFUL FALL COLORS AND WONDERFUL WINERIES IN LEELANAU COUNTY. We are located within 5-10 minutes of some outstanding wineries. Leelanau County is fast becoming "The Napa Valley" of the Midwest! Great canoe trips on the Crystal River, bike trails from Suttons Bay to Traverse City, charter fishing trips onto Lake Michigan, beautiful white sandy beaches everywhere, vineyards and cherry orchards, fantastic folk art galleries, great yoga studio in Lake Leelanau. For boat owners, there is a nice easy launch site just 1/2 a mile down the road from our house. Paddle across the lake to Fish Town in Leland for great dining, shopping and Van's Beach on Lake Michigan. It's a great location for visiting the charming villages of Suttons Bay, Northport or Leland. And it's just 20-30 minutes to Traverse City. There is a fantastic bike path from Suttons Bay into Traverse as well that we highly recommend. Great golf courses too. Lots to do!

              Year Purchased: 1980

              About: Our family has been in Northern Michigan since the 1800's. We have a family run cherry farm in Lake Leelanau and even though I live in Northern California, I try to spend as much time as I can every summer in Leelanau.

              Why Lake Leelanau:
              This property was purchased by my grandfather many years before I was born. He and my father built a large log cabin here in the 50's as well as the boat house, pier and marina. That original cabin was replaced in the early 80's with a larger, architect designed family home. The view never changes. It is as gorgeous as ever.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              Here are some of the things i really appreciate about Lake Leelanau and the Lake House in particular: warm, sunny days, balmy nights, occasional dramatic thunder storms, incredible sunsets, hardly any boat traffic on the lake (quiet), kayaking across the lake to Carp River and Leland, the amazing beach at Van's on Lake Michigan, sidewalk sales in August, great food at the Riverside Inn, golfing at Leland Country Club (which is open to the public in fall.)
