About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

One of the most recognizable houses on South Lake Leelanau, this almost new cedar chalet-style cottage with full glass lake view offers you private access to this lake that is equally famous for its unparalleled water sports and excellent fishing! The 23 mile long natural spring-fed lake is crystal clear and flows through the Leelanau peninsula north into Lake Michigan at Leland. Our cottage is located on the west side of the south end of Lake Leelanau within walking distance to Bel Lago Winery in a cove that is typically sheltered from the prevailing winds making it a preferred water skiing and wake boarding area. Three sets of off-shore drop-offs also make this cove a fishing Mecca for walleye and small mouth bass. Our property offers a spectacular view of the lake and is perfect for all of your summer time activities with family and friends.

You will understand how the cottage got its name 'Sangria Sunrise' as you enjoy your morning coffee on our upper deck which has an unbelievable view of the sun as it rises over the lake in the morning. As you sit on our cedar bench at the end of our 160' private dock in the evening, you will equally enjoy the last rays of the setting sun over the bluffs as you watch the guys troll for walleye just off of the end of our dock. Bring your own boat or rent one and tie it up to one of the 4 concrete tire anchors we provide. We also offer an aluminum row boat and two kayaks free with the house rental. The kids will love the hard sand bottom and knee high water that extends to the end of the dock where they can play for hours. A set of steps is provided at the water's edge for easy lake entry, and a ladder is available at the end of the dock for the swimmers. A unique outside hot-water shower with platform & shower curtain are built onto the side of the cottage for the swimmers to shower off when the day's swimming is done. As the sun retreats for the night, the fun is only beginning. Adults can enjoy a glass of local wine in our private hot tub set into our lower deck while watching the kids roast marshmallows and make smores over the fire in the fire pit on the lower stone porch.

This is boater's and swimmer's heaven! In the morning, take advantage of the flat water in our cove water skiing, or enjoy the excellent fishing just yards away. Our cove is routinely fished for walleye, smallmouth & rock bass, perch, bluegill, and northern pike. As the heat of the day rises, the skiers are joined by the boaters and waver runners cruising the shoreline. The kids and the dogs can splash in the shallow waters in the extended swim area in front of the house as the older family members soak up the sun on the patio. Take your boat to Leland for lunch and shopping, or cruise up the Victoria Creek through the nature preserve to the town of Cedar for ice cream. Or if you prefer, the adults can cruise 10 mins to the south end of the lake to the Tiki Bar at Perrin's Landing for a drink and gas for the boat. Many boaters enjoy the numerous sand bars just minutes from our house where they anchor there boat and swim in the shallow warm summer waters and socialize with other boaters. If you want to get further away, there is an incredible variety of activities in Traverse City just 20 minutes away, or more intimate things to do in the small coastal towns of Glen Arbor, Suttons Bay, Empire or Leland. Scattered around the area are over a dozen wineries and fruit farms. If you seek more excitement, Lake Michigan beaches, the Sleeping Bear sand dunes, and salomon fishing are just minutes away.

Our house has 3 bedrooms, including a master bedroom on the main floor, and a larger guest bedroom and bunkroom with 6 bunk beds on the upper floor. We have a full bathroom with shower on the main floor across from the master bedroom, and a jack-n-jill full bathroom with shower connecting the guest bedroom and bunkroom on the upper floor. The fully equipped kitchen and attached great room with stone fire place open up on to the expansive upper deck which provides incredible views up and down the lake. The lower floor has a den with TV as well as access to the lower deck & patio with fire pit and our private hot tub. All floors are either hard wood or ceramic tile for easy upkeep. Our house is at the end of a private road, so peace and quiet are a given.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

Why the Owner Chose Cedar, MI, USA:
Our extended family has been coming to this lake on vacation or for boating and fishing for over 45 years now. We simply love it! For decades we camped at local lakeside camp grounds, but recently we were lucky enough to find this unbelievable piece of property and build our dream cottage on it. We would like to share a small peace of our heaven with your family too!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The warm clear waters of the lake are perfect for families, and especially kids. The views are simply breathtaking. Nearly any water activity you can think of goes on here. We were originally drawn to these waters by the fishing, but have discovered that it offers so much more. We enjoy the fishing, boating, skiing, swimming, sailing, jet skiing just to name just a few. Our two golden retrievers always come with us and are famous on the street for their swimming enthusiasm and escapades. When hanging out on the lake isn't enough, there is an incredible selection of things to do in nearby Traverse City or the small towns and sand dunes along the Lake Michigan coastline. There are also numerous festivals and special activities throughout the summer, so things are always changing and it never gets old to us. Our house is often full of visiting family and friends who have discovered our secret, so get your reservation in quickly.
