"Heron Cottage is the perfect place for a quiet get away and a great location for exploring Leenlanau Peninsula. Grand Traverse Lighthouse, Leland and Suttons Bay are approx. 20 mins.away. Gleen Arbor about an hour. There is a nice marina and beach area just a couple of blocks away from the cottage. My favorite winery was Black Star Farms, but my favorite place to enjoy a glass of wine was right on the porch of Huron Cottage. The neighborhood is very quiet. The owners have made the cottage very comfortable, relaxing and clean and they are very pleasant to work with. Can not wait to return."

"Very nice place to stay :) we had our 12 year old and 9 year old with us. They loved having the loft to escape to. It was a nice " home base" for our travels. We went to sleeping bear, Fishtown, Sutton Bay, Traverse city, Mission Point and grand traverse light houses and of course the cute town of Northport. The cabin was comfortable with a pretty yard. We will most likely visit again."

"We have stayed at this house every summer since 2011, and spending a week at Cathead Bay is now a family tradition. The house is located in an idyllic spot: right on the beach in a very quiet and beautiful part of Lake Michigan. You can walk for hours on the beach and only run into a few people... but you may spot piping plovers and find Petosky stones along the way. We always rent some paddle boards and kayaks for some water fun, and make a number of trip to Barb's Bakery in Northport for breakfast treats. The house is clean, spacious and well maintained, and Jeff and Carrie will do everything they can to make your stay as enjoyable as possible."

"My family and I have vacationed in Northern Michigan for nearly 40 years - searching for that perfect home and perfect beach/waterfront property. The Fox House is that. Not only is the home updated, spacious and filled to the gills with every amenity possible, the outdoor experience cannot be beat. You are on the leeward side of Lake Michigan meaning that the beach is gorgeous, the water is calm and you can safely swim out for what feels like miles. Northport - and its surrounding communities - continues to grow and offers great biking, running, water sports, and restaurants. This is our fourth year at the Fox House and we will be back next year."
