Wonderfully spacious, excellent view!
Wonderfully spacious, excellent view!
Our stay at Freshwater Cottage was a memorable one. The cottage had so many conveniences, was spacious, and the view was outstanding. The washer, drier, and garage came in very handy. One of the best things about the cottage was the storage space. It was also close to Lake Leelanau, Leland, and Suttons Bay, in addition to the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. The only thing we felt was lacking was that the kids' bedroom did not accommodate two children comfortably. We brought a twin air mattress to put alongside the double bed, and slid it under the bed during the day so the kids could walk in the room. The guest cottage served as a wonderful playspace for our girls who were too young to sleep in it, since it is a separate building from the main cottage. Overall, the cottage was absolutely wonderful and the owners were very responsive. We would highly recommend staying at this property.
