Lake Leelanau cottage description

In the heart of Leelanau county in downtown Lake Leelanau, The Leelanau Boat Club was formed when the Leelanau Lumber company changed hands. The water way, lovingly referred to as the ' Narrows' has been protected with the assistance of the Leelanau Conservancy and the Lake Leelanau Lake Association. That means that the Boat Club is surrounded by natural area and is a unique property for couples, small groups and single families.
Cottages include a boat slip and there are many quiet activities to embrace and room to roam on the 10 acres that encompasses the Club.

This six bedroom 2.5 bath lumberbarron's home has been renovated and is ready for your stay. We have your cottage here 'Up North'!

Privacy and Nature are the key amenities here. Call us or email us to determine the best location here at the Leelanau Boat Club. Private extended memberships available from 2-5 weeks annually with savings from 20-50% off weekly rates.

A Pontoon Boat is here to rent and weekly guests have access to two Kayak's, a paddle boat and a row boat. Bring your own boat for the week or your extended stay and we have your slip!
Many fantastic beaches on Lake Michigan and West Bay are just around the corner. Leelanau County is home to the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lake Shore, voted as the 2011 Most Beautiful Place In The Country by Good Morning America.

Relax on the dock and watch the boats go by or listen to the birds and relish in the sounds of nature. The Mosier House at the Boat Club will accommodate up to fifteen people. Ten adults/ 5 couples or 8 adults and 6 children. Five Couples will be very comfortable or Six Singles. If you need more space- we have another smaller cottage to compliment this listing.

Food lovers will delight in the organic produce, local fish and cherries this area is known for and are prevalent in the many restaurants and food establishments regionally. Take a day trip to South Manitou Island out of Leland and take a step back in time! There is plenty to do here in Leelanau County and the Leelanau Boat Club sits in the center of fun!

Call today to arrange for your special getaway. We are open all year. Seasonal Discounts are available.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2010

              About the owner: We LOVE Lake Leelanau and Leelanau County. We enjoy the sites and sounds and lack there- of here in the North Woods. Egan is a Trikke Trainer and spends any free time teaching others and selling Trikkes. She is also active on the boards of Department of Human Services in Leelanau- the Leelanau County Family Coordinating Council and Samaritan's Closet. The Leelanau Laundry Program that serves low income families' is also a focus of Egan's time when she is not tending to boat club activities!

              Why the Owner Chose Lake Leelanau:
              We live right next door on six acres. The Leelanau Boat Club was formed because the property initially was to be developed into Condominiums and when the Condo development was in jeopardy, the property came up for sale. We worked with the Conservancy and the Lake Association to protect the waterfront. Docks do however still exist and so we share the boardwalk that we use to the water with our guests at the Leelanau Boat Club. Coming in 2014- the Boat House will be restored along with the addition of 4 slips to the boat house complex. This property is unique because it is within the village of Lake Leelanau but consist of ten acres of wooded splendor. Walk through the enchanted forest and listen to the sound of nature and within minutes you can reach the post office or grocery store on foot. Hot tub out your door and privacy Galore

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              The privacy and spaciousness of this area is what is unique to the Leelanau Boat Club. Activities that we enjoy: The Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park was just voted the Most beautiful place in the country. The beaches are fantastic both on Lake Michigan and West Bay as well as on the many small inland lakes. Boating/Relaxing on Lake Leelanau Trips to the Tiki Bar at Perrin's Landing by boat. Riding bikes 16 miles around the north end of Lake Leelanau. Stopping at Pedaling Beans Coffee shop to grab a Latte or an ice cream, Walking the Lake Michigan Shoreline at Good Harbor or Van's Beach. Trikke riding at the Leelanau trail or Biking the trail out of Suttons Bay. Wine tasting and Cider tasting Catching a film at the Traverse City Film Fest Watching the sunset over Lake Michigan are favorites. There is so much to do here and the LBC is located in the heart of all the cool activities! North and South Manitou excursions can be arranged through Manitou Transit in Leland, five miles north of us. We can help you arrange a fishing excursion out of Leland Harbor with any number of expert guides. We're happy to help you make this time special. Please ask if you have any questions or special needs.
