The moon rise over Lake Leelanau and the breath taking views of the stars at night from the dock are two of the many things our family has been enjoying about this cottage since the early 1960's and now we'd like to share it with you. It's perfect location on Robinson's Bay just 1 mile south of Leland is ideal for the water skiing enthusiast. Calm water is why this bay is one of the premier locations for skiers and tubers. For the serious skier there is the opportunity to ski our submersible water ski slalom ski course. For the family with children, this is a perfect swimming location. The cottage sits 50' from water's edge. Hard sand bottom gradually slopes out for a gentle decline and there is not a stone in sight! The dock has a 6' x 12' section at the end of the dock for sun bathing and boat hoist for boats up to 20' in length.
Our comfortable home has been completely remodelled from top to bottom. We have two bedrooms with queen size beds, one of which has a gorgeous view of the lake. The third bedroom has two sets of bunk beds. From the large well equipped kitchen you enjoy views of the lake and can comfortably seat 8 people around the dining room table which sits beside a huge picture window. We have a large living room with new 28' flat screen TV and DVD player and a screened in porch with comfortable seating on vintage wicker furniture.
A large deep lot surrounds the cottage and offers privacy from the road and room for the kids to run and play. Enjoy our fire pit on the beach in the evenings or grill the perfect burger on the Weber grill.
Our ideal location gives you easy access to all the restaurants and shops in Leland as well as a short 10 mile drive down the road to the Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore. Can fill you in on all the amazing things this county has to offer the guests to our wonderful county. It truly is 'The Land of Delight'! We want to make your vacation the absolute best it can be and we look forward to meeting you!

Year Purchased: 1963
About: I was a teenager in high school when my parents bought 'the cottage' in the early 60's. My brothers and I grew up on a cherry farm in Suttons Bay and my parents bought this home on the lake so we could enjoy both the farm and the lake.
Why Leland: We use to laugh about having a cottage only 14 or so miles from our home, but what better place to live and vacation in then Leelanau County! My mother Agnes, who will be 90 this fall, is no longer able to live alone and happily agreed to let us rent out her wonderful home so that more people can come to know the magic of this special place. The beauty is unquestionable, the quiet so peaceful, and the memories inspiring and lasting!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: From the moment you get up in the morning to enjoy a good cup of coffee on the porch to the quiet moments on the dock at night looking up at the milky way and wondering how the stars can seem so close your vacation will renew your spirits and refresh your attitude on life. It just doesn't get much better than this! Don
