About the owner: My wife Kim and I live in the Greater Grand Rapids area, she is a Kitchen Designer and a Writer, and I am a Financial Advisor. It has been a dream of ours to own a home on Lake Michigan, and having come up to Northport for several years we were thrilled to find the "blue cottage" on the Bay! We have three grown children, and the cottage is definitely a place for us to come and unplug. This area and its amazing combination of spectacular natural beauty, charming towns, wineries (23!), brewpubs, great seasonal events, state parks (including the Sleeping Bear Dunes area), and of course Traverse City offers so many things to do, more than we ever seem to be able to squeeze into our schedule!
Why the Owner Chose Northport, MI, USA:
We had come up to Northern Michigan so often over the past few years that we wanted to be a part of it. We started looking for a lake house in the Fall of 2015 and we came across this house in Northport, Michigan. The rest is history, and a dream come true. This cottage is unique because it is so close to the water, just outside the double sliders and across the sand. We can both see and hear the waves as they reach shore, and the turquoise water is just beautiful. We are looking forward to enjoying the home with our grown children, their spouses, and future grandchildren! We rent it now because we both work and don't get to get up there as often as we like.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Besides its spectacular location on the water, the home is surrounded by forests that have many hiking trails to explore. It is very peaceful and private. Begin your day by watching the sun rise from the deck, then either hit the trails or the beach. Explore the shore with the kayaks, canoe, or rowboat. Or maybe you would prefer visiting one of the 23 wineries located on the Peninsular, or one of the brewpubs, or farmers markets. There are also many seasonal events and musical performances you might fancy in some of the charming communities that dot the Peninsula, just minutes away. After a delicious dinner at one of the local restaurants a great way to end the day is with a bonfire on the beach, watching the moon rise. Wonderful!
