On beautiful Lake Leelanau, close to so many northern Michigan attractions. Located on the east side of south Lake Leelanau, the cottage is close to Traverse City, Suttons Bay, Leland, Glenn Arbor, Sleeping Bear Dunes, Lake Michigan, hiking spots, shopping, restaurants, Interlochen School for the Arts (check out their concert schedule www.interlochen.org) and so much more! That is if you want to leave the beach ten yards from your door!
Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: We are so fortunate to live in Traverse City and call this cottage our second home. We are vacationing here ourselves when it is not rented, so we maintain it as if we were living there. We clean it ourselves, so we take our time and do it right, so you can sit back and relax once you open the door!
Why the Owner Chose Lake Leelanau: My husband Chris and I first saw West Wind on a cold December Saturday, but fell in love with It’s location, glimmering sunset, open property, beautiful beach and private harbor. It has so much to offer, both on the property itself and in its central location to so much of Northern Michigan.
Each year we try to make the cottage a little more like home, without taking away its charm and character.
So far we’ve replaced all the windows and the roof, painted over the exterior orange and brown, added flower boxes and whimsical shutters and tried to create a fun feel. We added ceramic tile in the bath and re carpeted. The polka dot room with the star ceiling was the brainchild of our children.
Our latest project was the kitchen. Brand new as of June 20th, 2013!
We hope you find the cottage comfortable and fun!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Location, location, location! As a Realtor, I know how important this is, and this cottage has it all. Close to everything you would want to do and see in Northern MI, and with the beach and private harbor right out your front door!
