              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1998

              About the owner: Terry and I have been renting our vacation homes on the Leelanau Peninsula for over 30 years. Because we travel extensively we understand what our guests expect. Our Housekeeper is TOPS! We make every effort to provide attractive, eclectic and comfortable furnishings and linens. Our guests are giving this new cottage great thumbs up!

              Why the Owner Chose Northport:
              Great location and comfort. Although we have owned vacation rentals in other villages on the Leelanau for over 30 years, we have focused on Northport for the following reasons: It is just so charming! It is just a short drive to several beaches, Northport Creek Golf Course, Grand Traverse Lighthouse and Leelanau State Park and Dunes; equal distance to Leland, Suttons Bay, Omena; close to the Casino and many great wineries. Because it is at the northern tip of the peninsula it has less tourist traffic noise. The village is a quaint reminder of how small villages were like a century ago, yet includes a modern health and fitness center and great shops, restaurants, beaches and marina.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              The deck in summer; great for Bar-B-Ques, reading books and sipping Leelanau wine. And, on cool nights the lovely fireplace! Right in the village, the house is walkable to everything: beach, ice cream, playground, restaurants, shopping, groceries, wedding venue.
