Great Lime Lake House

Bedrooms 4
Property type house


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-10)

This is a very cozy, warm and inviting house on Lime Lake.

Can't wait for Summer, 2016!

This cozy, four bedroom, two bath house/cottage sits just a few feet from lovely Lime Lake, with a lovely large deck over looking the lake. Lime Lake is located in the heart of beautiful Leelanau County. It has great fishing, boating and is close to many National Lakeshore hiking trails. Only fifteen minutes from either Glen Arbor, or north to Leland, it is the central place to be. And if you want to be at the big lake for sunsets, you're only five minutes away.

We provide two kayaks, outdoor grill, and a fire pit by the lake. This is an all weather home with all amenities up to date. The yard is spacious and private.

The house is literally in the 'heart' of all that this area has to offer. The beautiful Crystal River, Sleeping Bear Dunes, Empire Bluffs, and 'Big Lake' beaches are minutes from the house. The water in front of the house is shallow with a hard sand bottom, ideal for young children and adults alike. There is a private dock and mooring for those who have, or wish to rent, boats or jet-skis.

Yard and house care cleaning, bed/bath linens, and full kitchen facilities, flatware, dishes, pots & pans, gadgets, etc., are all provided. Just bring your food and beverages!

Our family has enjoyed this wonderful home. Call for more information. COME JOIN THE FUN!

Note: Please be aware that WE STRICTLY LIMIT OCCUPANCY TO 10 GUESTS. No tents or campers. No smoking. No pets.

Thank you

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have stayed at this cottage for three years now and are going back. We have a family of 9 with children and grandchildren. It is a perfect house for bigger groups. There are spacious rooms for everyone to find their own space but we can still meet at the dining room table for games together. The bedrooms are cozy and comfortable. We like to cook and the kitchen is well stocked with every cooking item you could want. We ate on the deck almost every night and usually have counted on one fish meal from the lake. The cottage comes with most any beach/water item you would need including water shoes, life jackets, noodles, and kayaks. The lake in front of the cottage is very shallow so our 5 and 6 year old grand children can play all day without concern of getting over their head. The view is amazing – beautiful sunrises; you look across the lake at trees, not other cottages. There is lots of wild life – we look forward to seeing the family of bald eagles and hearing the loons. Oh yes, and you are only about 10 minutes from several beaches on Lake Michigan.

What a wonderful place to take a vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were blown away when we set foot in this beautiful house for our week's vacation. This is our 5th VRBO rental, and this was by far the nicest one yet. The pix don't do it justice. It is far nicer!! We had 6 adults and the house was more than spacious for that many. All the amenities were great. Front porch and yard are awesome. Great dock and water area with moorings for our 2 boats we brought. Located on the far south end of the lake so no boat traffic in front of cottage but great location for swimming and just hanging out in the water. We were there when the huge storms took power out to thousands in the area and had no power for 3 days of our stay, but the property manager was GREAT and brought us ice for our food in our coolers and got us a generator. Even though that happened, their attentiveness to a situation that nobody predicted was just over the top. We lacked nothing during our stay, this cottage is in a great location if you love a quiet lake and wildlife and a slower pace. We used the great outdoor grill a lot and thoroughly enjoyed the fishing, swimming, tubing, skiing, wakeboarding, kayaking we did. Cottage location is great. Just a few miles from Maple City for necessities and a short drive to Glen Arbor, the dunes, Lake MI, Sugarloaf. The cottage was very clean and very comfortable. The spacious deck out the living room on the lakeside is amazing. It made for a very memorable vacation 2015 for our entire family for sure. We loved this place!!

Excellant vacation place!!!

  • 5 of 5

The SomerVilla cottage exceeded our expectations and then some! The house is updated, comfortable and large enough to spread out if you have lots of people. The lake is beautiful-bottom is rocky so bring your watershoes. It stays shallow for quite a ways out so it would be great for kids. Property managers were very kind and had great communication. Beds and furniture are comfortable and clean. Loved having all of the ammenities. Long and spacious dock off the shore was great for spending time near the water. Also spent many hours on the sprawling deck and outdoor patio set. The surrounding area is one of the best places to spend your vacation!! Thank you for opening your cottage to families like ours!
