Northport cottage description
Thank you for viewing our listing! This beautiful, remodeled inside-and-out cottage is our vacation home of 26 years, and we appreciate your interest in it for the 2014 summer season. As of Thanksgiving, 2013, the calendar is up-to-date for dates available next summer.
Three bedrooms, two baths, central air conditioning and heat, and a magnificent deck overlooking Lake Michigan.
One-hundred-sixty-six (166) lakefront feet of sandy beach on Christmas Cove; you can walk the beach for miles, north and south. Four miles east across the peninsula to Grand Traverse Bay where you'll find Northport's marina, grocery store, restaurants and the famous Barb's Bakery.
Located on the Leelanau Peninsula, Michigan's 'little finger,' our cottage is on a private, paved road near apple and cherry orchards, fifteen minutes from Suttons Bay and Leland. It is a charming cottage on two lots, Lake Michigan on one side and fields and orchards on the other, and the only interruption to your quiet, lake experience is the sound of the Lake and the wind in the trees.
This is a beautiful location and a comfortable, well-maintained home. The master bedroom with a king-size, Sleep Comfort bed, is downstairs with its own bath and separate shower. The upstairs master has a queen bed, flat-screen t.v. and a private, lakeside deck. The third bedroom has two single beds. Both upstairs bedrooms have their own AC units, powered by their ground-level unit and are whisper-quiet. The upstairs bath has a shower; there is a small office area and book library between the upstairs bedrooms. Wifi is available.
We prefer to rent in two-week packages, and will consider a substantial reduction in price for rentals of two weeks or longer. Our caretaker lives around the corner, so no worries about maintenance.
If you are a 'boomer' looking for someplace to settle, you would love our cottage as a launching pad for your explorations; ours however is not for sale, but you would get a feeling for the special qualities of this exquisitely beautiful segment of northern Michigan's coast.
Northport has a vibrant community of active adults, and has fine art and music offerings during the summer season. There are lots of places for kids; Northport has tennis courts, ball fields, and a skateboard park.

Beautiful Lake Michigan Views
Beautiful Lake Michigan Views
My family of four stayed at this charming and well-kept cottage for a week in early August. The owners were very accommodating and helpful to us in describing the area, making recommendations for local restaurants and attractions, and even mapping out a nice hiking path from the home. The location is very private and peaceful and the cottage has a nice deck with stunning views of Lake Michigan.

About the owner: Professionals, retired since 2002, we live in New Mexico in winters, and during the summer like to take a few weeks to travel the mountainous west.
Why the Owner Chose Northport:
We have had the cottage for more than a quarter of a century. It is our summer home, not a real estate investment, and we have been fortunate to rent it to people who have cared for it beautifully.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The neighborhood is very quiet; literally, you will hear the wind in the trees, the sound of the lake on breezy days, and the birds. Almost no auto traffic, for the road is private and not a throughway. The large, auto-sprinkled yard affords space for badminton and comfortable distance from our wonderful neighbors. If you are walkers or bicyclists, Northport is only an eight-mile round trip on lightly trafficked, rural roads.
