This residence is perfect for the vacationing family with 2 large bedrooms that sleep 4 people comfortably. With full amenities including washer / dryer and dishwasher, this home will make your stay with us feel like a visit to your second home!
This is a truly special vacation home for all seasons - with family or with friends!
Summer (peak season): Enjoy a day at the beach, take a sailing lesson, play golf or tennis, take a book and a picnic basket to one of the islands for a day trip, dine on the patio at a favorite restaurant, grab and ice cream cone in the harbor!
Spring / Fall: The best seasons to taste the flavors of the Peninsula! Visit many of Leelanau County's tasting rooms (do a wine tour! - Leelanau Peninsula Vinter's Association website is a great place to start!). Be sure to visit in the Fall, the season's colors are MIND BLOWING.
Winter: Settle in for a cozy day of reading and relaxation, or get out there and enjoy the snow! Cross country skiing trails are throughout the area! Downhill skiing / snowboarding just a quick trip away!

Charming Country Cottage
Charming Country Cottage
We went to Northern Michigan to unwind and spent our time hiking, kayaking and bicycling. This cottage was an excellent base for all those activities. The access to Lake Leelanau was a block away, and we were able to leave our kayaks there. It was a short walk to the center of town where we were able to go to the beach, buy groceries or treat ourselves to ice cream cones. We're an outdoors-oriented middle aged couple, and this cottage was just what we were looking for. It was simple, practical and had personality. We'd happily stay there again.

Great little cottage, perfect for a small family!
Great little cottage, perfect for a small family!
What a delightful little cottage, perfect for a small family! It’s convenient to town and the lake (although not a beach) is within easy walking distance. The cottage was well-furnished and immaculately clean for check-in. The property manager is responsive and friendly and the owners of the cottage are in Leland and available for assistance if needed. A small issue, a malfunctioning refrigerator, was identified before arrival and quickly resolved. The rental fee is very reasonable. I would definitely recommend this property!

Manager response: Hello and thank you for the honest review of our property! Yes, the refrigerator was a bit of headache for all involved (for you, our guests, especially!!!). I do appreciate your understanding in the matter and am thankful it was able to be resolved quickly. I'm pleased to hear that you found the cottage clean and well furnished. You are correct - the lake access is not a beach. I do, however, find it a great spot for launching kayaks, taking a quick evening dip, or cooling your feet off after a long day of wandering around Leland. Thank you again for taking the time to review our cottage - so glad it suited your needs! Best, Carolyn Telgard

About: My name is Carolyn and I am managing this lovely home for my parents. I was born and raised in Leland, Michigan - boy, was I lucky! I have spent several years traveling abroad, I have lived in Ann Arbor, Los Angeles and now, Austin...and I am speaking honestly when I say that Leland is still my favorite place to vacation! My husband and I are both architects. We enjoy the outdoors, wine and FOOD. My parents, the owners of this cute house, are both in the restaurant business. My father was raised in Leland and descends from a long line of Leland locals. My mother, a native Michigander, spent much of her youth in the Leland area where she eventually settled down with dad. Their dedication to the County and Leland life runs deep. We're all in love with the area!
After having lived in town for 18 years and now visited as a vacationer, I am convinced that the quality of life in Leland CANNOT be beat. Our sleepy little town will keep you active and outdoors spring - fall, and will give you necessary pause and repose in the winter (though don't be fooled - there's LOTS to see in do in the snow too!!!). Leland really has it all. I miss it terribly while I am away...always looking forward to the next visit.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The Chandler Cottage has the best of everything. It's location is prime - downtown is easily accessible, the beach is yours to enjoy! ...And yet, in your down time while you're relaxing and recovering for your next adventure, the cottage provides quiet sanctuary away from the bustle of the town. Small, Midwestern town living at its ABSOLUTE BEST.
