Car: Recommended

Northport is the northernmost town on Leelanau Peninsula. Home of Barb's Bakery, famous for its donuts and cinnamon twists. A peaceful village with a golf course, several galleries, coffee shops, bars and restaurants, Northport has easy access to the shops, galleries, wineries, and restaurants of Leland, Omena, and Suttons Bay. It has a full-service grocery store with meat counter, fresh fruits & vegetables, alcoholic beverages, etc. On Friday there is a fabulous Farmers' Market in the Marina parking lot on the waterfront adjacent to the Park. Cottage is walking distance from the Willowbrook Mill event space.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Anne is a management consultant, specializing in counsel to nonprofits, small businesses, and government entities. Greg is a professor of American history & the environment. Both have U of Michigan PhDs.

Why the Owner Chose Northport:
Anne has been coming to the Northport area since she was four months old! Greg came to love the area when he discovered bicycling, birding, and kayaking. Both love the peaceful atmosphere of the town, with walking access to all amenities one wants in a vacation spot.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We fell in love with this cottage because it is filled with sunlight and the sparkle reflected from the clear waters of Northport Bay, which is visible from the back deck, front yard, living room, and several bedrooms. The hardwood floors and clean lines of the interior appeal to us. With four bedrooms and a queen fold-out sofa in the family room, there is lots of room for guests.
