Property description

Shugart's Sunset Getaway is new to the rental market in 2014. This sweet rustic cabin has been in the same family for generations and is located in a private neighborhood close to Traverse City but located in Leelanau County. The Leelanau Trail- a paved bike trail is right around the corner. Bike to Suttons bay or Acme on TVC west side from this fabulous location. The Cottage is rustic- No internet or cable tv but a wonderful Movie collection to entertain you if rains but the sunset is the main focus here and the gorgeous waterfront! You can moor your boat here or Kayak and swim from your front yard. Lounge in the Hammock and roast marsh mellows and S'Mores as the sun goes down. The Cottage has a private dock at the shore and the only thing you need to bring is your beach towels and reading material! Relax and unwind on the south end of Beautiful Lake Leelanau. The breeze here is delightful and if you want to travel to Traverse City, you are very close by. Lake Leelanau is 17 miles long and empties into the Leland River at Fishtown in Leland so you cvan park your boat at the Library or Historical Society or at any of the township or Dnr Launch spots and stroll into the Village of Leland for some shopping or to experience Historical Fishtown- a preservation project spearheaded by Fishtown Preservation Society. The Sunset Getaway is the perfect spot to land for a great summer getaway. Barbeque in the back yard and rest on the hammock awaiting the Sunset and you will not be disappointed! Your Vacation starts here and Indeed is Pure Michigan!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: This Cottage has been in the Shugart Family for generations but in 2014 the family decided to share this special spot with others! Though we do not have very many photos currently we will continue to improve the available images this season.

Why the Owner Chose Lake Leelanau:
I am the Rental Manager for the owners family. I have cottages of My own on the Narrows in the Village of Lake Leelanau. I have know this family since I moved here in 1987 and when they planned to put the cottage in the rental pool they were kind enough to call me to arrange. Though there are no technical amenities here such as internet and Cable Tv, there are WIFI spots close by to access your tools- When you come to the Sunset Getaway- find yourself relaxing and Un-Plugging yourself from the stress of your daily life. The Traverse Are Recreational Trail is just down the road and Lake Leelanau is 17 miles long. There is much to explore from this location. Swimming, Boating and relaxation start here and once you settle in you are in a quiet private neighborhood tucked away from busy work related stress. The Sunset here is the real draw and the sound of the water lapping to the shore is all you need for restful slumber.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Close to all Leelanau amenities as well as Traverse City. Close to th Leelanau Bike Trail or Traverse Recreation Trail which is more than 36 miles. Close to the Sleeping Bear National Park and wineries in Leelanau and Old Mission peninsula. Beautiful sandy shore line and spectacular sunsets. Fire Pit to roast Marshmellows as you enjoy the end of your day. Vacationers enjoy a laid back vibe here where you can enjoy yourself and the surrounding beauty. If you like exploring on bikes- the Traverse Area Recreational Trail is just around the corner. You can travel more than 37 Miles round trip between Suttons Bay and Acme on the paved bike trail or enjoy the new Sleeping Bear National Park trail that is currently being established and will ultimately be more than 27 Miles long. Lake Michigan is close by and there are many big water beaches to explore as well in this area but the Sunset Getaway provides a sweet respite in a quiet neighborhood on the south end of beautiful Lake Leelanau.
