"We loved the island and will be returning for longer next time. We hiked most of the trails and public beaches. The views were amazing and the weather/colors were breathtaking! Location was perfect. We felt right at home!"

"Great little cottage on the water. Absolutely loved the private dock and how quiet it was in the area. Would definitely recommend to anyone trying to get away for a quiet weekend! The cottage had everything we would possibly need from cooking utensils to bathroom amenities."

"We are so sad to leave Northport after having a wonderful week here. Jim is a childhood friend of my husbands and now a good friend to us all. The cottage was very clean on arrival and there was a great new mattress in the master bedroom. We are sad to leave. Thank you Jim and Chris. We now have many more great memories of your delightful paradise. We hope to see you next year!"

"Our whole family (parents, 2 adult children, 1 teenager) spent a relaxing week in July at this terrific location on Lake Leelanau. The cottage had everything we were looking for -- great proximity to Traverse City, Leland, and local beaches/wineries, access to beautiful Lake Leelanau, and use of the pontoon boat included. We visited spots on Leelanau Peninsula, Lake Michigan and Grand Traverse Bay comfortably, and could easily have spent another week.
We made extensive use of the pontoon boat which the owner makes available at no extra cost. Each of my three children enjoyed tow rides on the inner tube. We also fished, swam off the boat, and enjoyed exploring Lake Leelanau. It is possible to navigate through the narrows to North Lake Leelanau, and reach as far as Leland if you wish to sightsee. The savings over private rental in both cost and convenience is a big plus for this cottage.
The owner's residence is on the upper floor of this cottage, however she provided virtually complete privacy during our stay. We were able to knock and ask questions as needed, aside from this, we rarely saw the owner. We asked our adult children (nightowls) to keep the volume down after 10 PM, but they were able to move freely about in the wee hours with no issues. The owner's presence should not have much impact unless complete privacy is desired by the renter.
I would recommend this rental and we are very likely to be repeat renters ourselves!"
