Leland house description
Our Lake Michigan home has only a few steps to the beach (Top 10 Beach Towns in America AOL Travel News). Our residence is about 1/2 mile off of M22 in a very private area without any public access. The home offers 3 bedrooms with each having a private bathroom and shower. The master bedroom also has a side room (formerly an artist studio) to accommodate any additional guests. The side room does have a separate entrance with access to the back patio deck.
Watch the kids from the deck and enjoy your vacation. Just a short drive to Leland and North-port, as well many of the local vineyards (Top 10 Places to enjoy Local Wines USA Today).
Restaurants and other local flavors all within reach (Top 5 Foodie Towns in America Bonn Appetite).
Enjoy swimming in Lake Michigan as well as the many activities that the lake has to offer. Paddle boarding, Kayaking, canoeing, sailing.
Enjoy the privacy that the beach has to offer, and for those wanting to walk into Leland for some shopping or an ice cream treat or bicycling (6 Best Cities for a Bike Vacation).
Leland has a great deal to offer those who just want to stay close. The ferry in Leland can take those wanting to explore the Manitou Islands for day long hiking trips or over night camping stays.
The home is also close to a great deal of Michigan's natural treasures. Just to mention a few are Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lake-shore that rises almost 500 feet from the lake. The lake-shore park also has many hiking trails for those wanting a bit more excitement. Traverse City is also home to the Cherry Festival each year and the Traverse City Movie Festival. Recently Traverse City was named 'Best Summer Trips 2012' by National Geographic.

Fantastic Beach Vacation
Fantastic Beach Vacation
We thoroughly enjoyed our week at this cottage. It was just what we were looking for; a relaxing week on Lake Michigan at a place with all of the comforts of home. It was clean and well-maintained and the owner was very prompt and helpful with any questions we had. The beach has sugar soft sand; there are some rocks in the water (recommend water shoes for the "tender-footed"). We enjoyed many long beach walks and did some rock hunting. The star-gazing from the beach was pretty amazing. The cottage has a newly remodeled kitchen which was a joy to cook in. The kitchen opens to an eating area with a great dining table and a large living room with a wall of windows overlooking Lake Michigan. The bedrooms have very comfortable beds and having 3 1/2 bathrooms was a plus. We spent a lot of time on the large deck. There's a table and chair set plus many extra chairs; also a really nice large grill. The sunsets from the deck were spectacular! We enjoyed strolling through the nearby towns of Leland, Northport and Suttons Bay. Did not visit Sleeping Bear Dunes this year, but would highly recommend it to anyone who has never been. Some of our favorite restaurants were The Garage in Northport and The Cove in Leland.

Owner response: Thank you so much for your kind words. We really went to great lengths to make our home as comfortable as possible.
Our family totally enjoyed our stay at this lovely beach house. The view and sunsets were awe inspiring, and the accommodations were lovely. Our five year old granddaughter proclaimed this "my dream house" when we first arrived. The rock hunting on the beach was quite interesting - found many Petosky stones and Leland Blue rocks. We would recommend water shoes for the water, but the beach is sugary-white sand. Bicycling in the area is great! Would love to return in the future.

Three generations came together in your beautiful and family friendly home. Our vacation could not have been better. All of the amenities of home were at our fingertips. The kitchen and the Wolf range made meal preparation a fun task for my daughter and me. The beds were so comfortable and you had so many towels. We had so much space to enjoy. The lovely deck overlooking the lake was perfect for nightly al fresco dining and the chairs on beach were our perch for bonfires and star gazing. You have the best stretch of beach with easy access and rock hunting became a new hobby. We even had fun chatting with the friendly neighbors. Thank you for sharing your home away from home. We hope to return yearly and keep on making more memories with our grandchildren. The day trip to the dunes was only 30 minutes and a nice dock in Lake Leelanau provided the children's spot to catch perch. More memories.
