Property description

The Bluestone Cottage is named for the unique stones, Leland blues, found only on our pristine Lake Michigan beaches. The in-town location provides easy access to Historic Fishtown, Lake Michigan beaches, boating on Lake Leelanau and restaurants in town. Just a short drive to many wineries and The Sleeping Bear Dunes.

The Bluestone Cottage is a quick 3 minute walk to the secluded North Beach on Lake Michigan, and just 3 blocks from Fishtown and the heart of Leland. Guests love that they can walk everywhere from The Bluestone Cottage on quiet back streets.

Recent reviews: 'Very nice accommodations for our group of eight. We loved the location. The kitchen was well-equipped. Everything gave a clean, well-maintained impression. I would highly recommend it to others.'

'The house is fantastic' Guest, July 2013
'The house was perfect for us' From Chicago,Feb 2014

This stylish cottage, with all fresh interiors, has plenty of room for 8-12 people, and would work well for multiple families as the huge upstairs Master suite with gas fireplace and pull-out sofa has its own kitchenette, private bath and two twins in an adjacent room. The main floor offers open space living, views of the private back yard and gardens, 3 bedrooms (2 Queens, 2 Twins) and 2 full baths. Guests love our well-designed interiors and luxury linens!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Our family of four lives in Grand Rapids and we escape to Leelanau County every chance we get! We love walking the beaches with our Golden Retriever, hiking and geocaching throughout the county, waterskiing and tubing on pristine Lake Leelanau, and exploring new restaurants and wineries!

Why the Owner Chose Leland:
The Bluestone Cottage gives us a chance to be just one block from the most hidden and desirable beach in Leelanau and just a short walk along the lakefront back streets to Leland, the most charming town up north and one of 'America's Best 8 Lake Towns.'

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We love the generous size of all the 4 bedrooms, the classic front porch, private back deck and 3-season screen porch for early mornings and we love being in-town Leland.
