About Melissa Crimmins
Melissa, Bryan, and Keaton Michigan natives currently living in California.
Melissa Crimmins purchased this House in 2003
Why Melissa Crimmins chose Leland Township
Leland is our second home, enjoyed a lifetime of memories year around with family here. Our family members are locals and chose this magical place to call home. People travel the world to find their special place... we come 'home' to Leland. We purchased this beloved cottage sight unseen because we always loved the house growing up - we didn't need to see it. We love Leland and the cottage is an iconic residence representing the original history and authenticity of this beautiful place.
What makes this House unique
walk to Lake Michigan beaches, Leland Country Club, Leland Yacht Club for sailing, Lake Leelanau public beach w/lifeguard and boat launch, easy stroll to river access for kayaking or boat launch. Cycling in the Leelanau Peninsula is fantastic. Wine tours around the M-22 Loop. Walk to unique one of a kind shops, Old Art Building or Leland Library for special events, Leelanau Historical Museum, Sisson's Bakery for sticky goodness, and the Fishtown Preservation with tons of local history and lore within a short walk. walk walk walk. Leelanau Conservancy hikes are within walking distance at Whaleback or north of town at Clay Cliffs.

Never stayed in nicer rental.
Got this last minute and absolutely fabulous experience. Would go back. have been going to Leelanau for years and never thought about staying in town. Quite handy, quiet. Easily sleeps 8 and up to 10 or 11. Great selection of movies, novels, Roku and Apple TV. Did have to wash front windows. Some got carried away with yard sprinkler. Very bright cheery place. 5 blocks from beach and couple blocks from all the downtown shops in Leland and in the close to vineyards, artists shops, bike trails, great restaurants, Manitou Passage golf, Sleeping Bear National Seashore. Owners quite friendly and accommodating.
A beauitful retreat in this lovely area of Michigan!
The Pearl House is a beautiful and private home right in the heart of Leland. This home is truly a home away from home gem. It has a warm and welcoming feel to it as soon as you step inside. The owners have done a wonderful job of creating a home that offers all travelers a place to rest, enjoy and create a lifetime of family memories. It’s large enough to accommodate more than one family with children or could be a lovely retreat for a couple who wants to be tucked away in a private place all their own.
It’s super clean, very comfortable and there’s plenty of rooms and space for everyone to enjoy. There’s even a lovely front porch to sit out on and enjoy your morning cup of coffee or an evening glass of wine from a local winery. I would highly recommend this place as a great home base for exploring Leland and the surrounding areas of Traverse City. The beauty of up north Michigan is all within driving distance from this beautiful home. A must place to stay if you’re visiting in the area!

Terrific stay in a charming, clean and comfortable home! Stayed 5 nights for vacation and to attend a local wedding. The size and layout of the home are wonderful for guests of all ages. We had 6 adults in the property and there was room to spare. The spacious rooms and large dining table were very comfortable. The home is private yet near town. The location is ideal for walks to Fishtown, the many beaches, restaurants and fun shopping. It is close to all the joys of Leland. This home exceeded our expectations and we cannot wait to go back and stay longer! We highly recommend!
Heart of Leland!
Our visit was spectacular! The cottage is spacious, clean, comfortable and well appointed. The Kitchen was well equipped, easy to work in and handled our large group well. The location is wonderful just a block from town. Our kids walked to the ice cream store and restaurants and shopping just a short walk away. There was always something to do for everyone. The beach is closeby & hiking, kayaking and sailing was wonderful. The freshness of the Michigan woods still fills my memory. The sunsets are incredible, we didn't miss a one! The Pearl House exceeded our expectaions, everyone loved it! We are looking forward to our next visit!
We are repeat guests at the Pearl House and look forward to our annual summer visit. The quality of the home makes our time memorable and the owners continue to invest in upgrades as they consider this their second home. This is not a typical rental. I hesitated to right a review as I want to keep this gem to ourselves. Fortunately, the owners give first right each year to return renters. Therefore it's hard to find available weeks during July and August.
The Pearl House is ideally located in the village of Leland across from the Village Green precisely between Lake Michigan and Lake Leelanau. The river and boat launch are across the street. Beach access to both lakes is a short walk or bike ride. This authentic Leland cottage is a great spot for family get aways-special celebrations, wine and color tours, bike touring, boats on the wall festival in the Fall. Our guests love to walk to the harbor for sunsets, to the restaurants or cafes, the Old Art Building for shows or workshops, golf or tennis right up the street. we are close to multiple world class golf destinations, skiing, fishing, water sports of all kinds. Bring your bikes too.
