Overview

About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

'Lake Michigan Delight' was designed by architect Bob Lange to follow the topography of the land and face the panoramic view of Good Harbor Bay. Lake Michigan, North and South Manitou Islands, Pyramid Point and Whaleback can be seen from every room (except two bathrooms) in the house through its oversized sliding doors and picture windows that fill the lake side of this contemporary home.

Enjoy morning coffee on the deck off the living room. Feel the beat of waves hitting the beach and listen to the the music of the birds overhead. Far out in the bay, you might catch a glimpse of a long Great Lakes freighter as it moves between North and South Manitou Islands.

Later in the morning, follow the steps to the deck on the beach. Relax in a beach lounge, read a good book, take a refreshing dip in the cool waters of Lake Michigan, or stroll along the water's edge and search the sand for Michigan Bluestone or the better-known Petoskey stones.

Ending a day at the beach, hose off the sand and slip into the warm waters of the hot tub which sits on the house's lower level deck. Afterwards, take a short trip to Leland's Fishtown to buy some whitefish, stop at a road side stand to pick up locally grown fruits and vegetables and choose a bottle of wine from one of the nearby wineries.

After a delicious dinner created from local food cooked on the grill, enjoy a sunset from the dining room, the deck off the living room or down on the beach. A campfire and roasted marshmallows end a day that will delight everyone in your group.

What makes this house unique

We love the privacy of being in a wooded area while at the same time looking out over the beautiful vista of Good Harbor Bay. There is a lovely brick walkway that meanders from the front entrance past a statue of a little girl with an umbrella, through a trellis, round a curve by the bench and the flagpole, ending by the stairway to the beach and the lower deck. Everyplace your eye rests is a delight.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our family comes to BD's House every summer. We love it and we can fit everyone into this lovely home to enjoy a week of sunning, shopping, eating, swimming and golfing together. We have lost some of our most loved, but have watched others grow and bloom. The house is well appointed, well maintained, well stocked, the beds comfortable, lots of towels, just everything you need to create a week of super wonderful memories.

Perfect Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

First, the location is perfect; in the center of Good Harbor Bay between Sleeping Bear Dunes and Leland. The accommodations are fully appointed and comfortable. We recently spent a week here with our 7 adult children and 5 grandchildren. We swam everyday, enjoyed the deck on the beach, had a campfire in the evening and enjoyed the hot tub at the end of the day. It was convenient having a washer/dryer at our disposal and a dishwasher. We grilled every night for dinner and enjoyed local produce and wines. The kitchen is large and the only equipment we missed was a griddle for pancakes. The four seats at the end of the counter were perfect for our pre-schoolers. With a home this size, it would be nice to have a second refrigerator in the garage.

The home is very close to M-22 but with the windows closed, traffic noise was not an issue. None of our vehicles fit in the garage due to the short depth. The driveway accommodated 3 vehicles.

Downstairs are 3 private bedrooms, but you need to walk through the 4th bedroom to get to the 3rd bedroom and they share a bath. Two of the downstairs bedrooms have their own outside access.

The walk down to Lake Michigan is easy and gradual. The waterfront is sandy with some large rocks, and there is a long, wide sand bar not far from shore. Petoskey Stones were in abundance!

Mary Lou was very quick to respond to any needs we experienced.

We look forward to returning to Lake Michigan Delight.

Returning Renter

  • 5 of 5

I have rented this property several times and will be returning again this Spring. It is the perfect place for girls weekend due to the number of bedrooms and bathrooms to accommodate everyone. It has the perfect location on the beach and a wonderful deck to enjoy the view and the local wine. It is simply the best as it is extremely clean and well stocked.

Perfect location, beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

What a great stay! The location, right on Lake Michigan and less than 10 minutes out of Leland, is convenient and the setting is beautiful. The house is well furnished - you can tell that there has been some love invested. The layout is outstanding for entertaining, too. Loved watching the sunsets, and walking on the beach. And visiting all the nearby wineries - they are all fun but Chateau Fontaine is a favorite.

Whether it's the comfortable beds or the clean northern air, we slept very soundly every night and woke up more refreshed every day. I am recommending this property to my friends, and look forward to a return visit!

My most favorite place to stay! I look forward to staying at this wonderful home. No other place in Michigan would I rather stay. A piece of heaven. The location is perfect. The beach is great for walks & the kids enjoy hours of building castles and playing . The sunset is beautiful. We have stayed here for years...and everytime we are there it is better then before.
