Leland cottage description

Cozy Cottage for 6, Just Minutes from Lake Michigan, Wineries, Farms, Food

Looking for a weekly summer rental close to all the beauty Leelanau County has to offer?

Come visit our quaint cottage right in the heart of Leelanau County, situated on a 135-acre farm. We're just 1 1/2 miles from the shores of Lake Leelanau and 3 miles from the Big Water at Good Harbor Beach. The village of Lake Leelanau is 6 miles North, Leland and Fishtown are 8 miles away, and Traverse City is an easy, 25 minute drive.

Cottage 1, is the primary cottage. It sleeps 6 comfortably, with one king sized bed and two full sleepers. The kitchen is huge, with a large dining table, island and a bar for entertaining. You'll find the best local coffee and tea in the cupboard. There is a full spice rack and all of the basic kitchen staples so that if you'd rather eat (or bake) in rather than eat out, you'll feel right at home.

The living room is comfortable, with several couches and a cozy table that serves as both a breakfast nook and a card table at night. There's a DVD library, wifi and television to suit all interests.

All linens and towels (even beach towels) are included. Basic toiletries will be provided, including extra toothbrushes and toothpaste. There is a full sized washer and dryer in the bathroom for guests to use as often as they'd like.

Our weeks run Saturday to Saturday, with check-in on Saturday afternoons at 3 p.m. and checkout is on the following Saturday at 10 a.m.

Need room for a larger group? Attached are photos of our overflow cottage that is available for an additional 4 people. (Please ask about this cottage when calling.)

There are several summer 2014 weeks available, including Memorial Day, Fourth of July, TC Cherry Festival, TC Film Festival and Labor Day.

Please feel free to call or text Melissa for more information and to book your vacation today.

              Car: Necessary

              We are located in the heart of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, voted in 2011 as 'The Most Beautiful Place in America'. Our cottages are located on a 135-acre farm, just a 1 1/2 miles from Lake Leelanau and 3 miles from Lake Michigan. This is the perfect place for outdoor enthusiasts, foodies and shoppers alike; there's really no other place in the world like it! Whether you want to hike, bike, swim, taste wine, buy some of the region's freshest, locally grown produce or catch a breathtaking sunset, Leelanau County is for you! Take a day trip to Fishtown, a historic fishing village in Leland. Rent a few kayaks and paddle the Crystal River--or even Lake Michigan. There's a marina nearby to rent a fishing boat or even la pontoon for a group. Schedule a Lake Michigan sunset cruise on the Mishe Mokwa, a ferry that takes you along the shoreline for drinks and serenity. Take a wine tour to sample award-winning wines--no trip is complete without a stop at 45 North or L. Mawby for sparkling wines! (Try Tandem Ciders for a fabulous collection of hard ciders.)

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2004

              About the owner: I'm a Leelanau County native and I live here year round with my husband and our darling daughter. I own a yarn shop in nearby town of Cedar, so I spend my days with our baby and yarn....pretty much perfect! My husband is an elementary school teacher for Leland Public Schools and farms (milks cows, raises sweet corn and pigs) on the side. We hope you enjoy our little spot in the world as much as we do.

              Why the Owner Chose Leland:
              This is the historic farm that once belonged to my husband's grandfather. My father-in-law grew up here. We love the new spin we've put on an old home and the life we've breathed into it with a lot of hard work, time and patience. We hope you'll fall in love with it, just as we have.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              Not everyone in the world has the opportunity to live on a farm. The gas pump (stuck at 36 cents per gallon!) and the steel windmill, as well as the hay barn and the pig barn, all harken back to simpler times. The inside of the cottages are a blend of new world and old. We've left the original grain mill inside the primary cottage, which was a granary in its previous life. On the old wood are notes my husband's grandpa wrote to himself almost 80 years ago. The kitchen and bathroom are brand new, with all the typical modern conveniences, but seamlessly blend with the traditional style.
