About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath plus outdoor shower with hot water (Sleeps 8)

Near the very tip of Leelanau, surrounded by forest, state parks and conservancy land. The cottage is just on top of the dunes among beech, birch and pine trees. Take in the view of Lake Michigan and the Fox Islands from the wood-burning hot tub at the end of the wrap-around deck. Perfect for quiet days reading, long hikes, bike riding and star gazing. Sunrises and sunsets are wonderfully colorful. Walk to Leelanau State Park for great dunes and perfect sand beaches or north to Grand Traverse Lighthouse.

Additional outdoor shower with hot and cold water. Newer laundry and kitchen appliances. We love to cook, so we make sure the kitchen is fully functional---good quality pots, knives, and each spring we stock the cabinet with fresh flour, oils, sugar, baking supplies, spices, etc.

The barn includes a ping-pong table and dart board on the second floor. Inside the barn you will also find several bikes and a bike trailer, sails for a Sunfish, two kayaks, a sailboard, the charcoal grill, a badminton set, and life jackets in every size.

Three bedrooms--two have Queen beds and one has two sets of bunk beds/ 4 beds.

Weekly rental from Saturday to Saturday. Check in is 3 p.m. on the first day, and check out is 10 a.m. on the last day when there are people there before or after you.

If you have any questions at all, please ask!

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Northport, MI, USA:
The weather in the summer is perfect, people are nice, and it is not very crowded.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The feeling of being secluded. We've spent whole days here and only seen one or two other people. A perfect day begins with a cup of coffee at the kitchen table watching the birds in the bay with a backdrop of the sunrise washing over the spit of land that creates the bay. Depending on the wind, go kayaking or sailing. A hike to the top of the dunes to see Lake Michigan and Grand Traverse Bay at the same time. A good finish to the day is to stoke the hot tub to relax before dinner.
