Leland cottage description

This turn of the century cottage has been enjoyed by five generations who still come to rock on the porches, swim in Lake Michigan and enjoy one of Leland’s finest beaches. The Big Cottage with its magnificent fireplace sits on a hill in the pine forest and looks out to the Manitou Islands to the west and to a walled “orchard” to the east. There is a second modern cottage next door and a newly converted carriage house, together sleeping a maximum of 20. It is a perfect spot for a family reunion as it is within walking distance to the village of Leland but at the entrance to the quiet Indiana Woods. We were not at all surprised that Good Morning America voted this area as the Prettiest Place in North America! Some our family’s favorite activities include sailing, kayaking, hiking, golf and biking beautiful Leelanau County. A Sunfish and two kayaks are available. Young and old alike will be delighted to relax here with the sound of the waves right out the window and the 250 foot private beach just a stone’s throw away.

                          Why Leland:
                          The village of Leland is a thriving summer community located between 2 lakes. The ferries for the National Scenic Lakeshore leave from Leland's historic Fishtown for the Manitou Islands. The village itself is both quaint and sophisticated with art galleries, museum, library and wonderful restaurants. Leelanau county is a land of cherry orchards and vineyards you will love to explore.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          The Big Cottage is one of three on the grounds. Please contact the owner to find out about the other accomodations which may not appear on the calendar.
