About the property

Cottage, 9 Bedrooms + Den, 3 1/2 Baths, (Sleeps 16-17)

This 1902 classic cottage features all leaded glass windows and doors in the true arts and crafts tradition. Hand-hewn beams, extensive split stone and cobblestone detail, cedar shingle exterior, 263 feet of private frontage with mature hardwoods and mowed lawn plus great sandy beach, dock, boat mooring, world-class views, and great sunsets.

This beauty is restored to its original charm and provides a perfectly quiet, private, and beautiful setting for a most memorable family vacation or reunion. Summer rates start the third week of June and run through the third week of August. We start renting Memorial Day Weekend and are flexible on rates and days rented in the off season and end renting by the middle of October. We prefer a minimum of 4 to 5 days due to the size and expense of preparing for the next group of guests.

About Becky Stacy

Moved here in 1979 to restore Birchcroft. Began renting it in 1981. Have been in real estate sales here since 1982 with Coldwell Banker in Suttons Bay

Becky Stacy purchased this cottage in 1979

Why Becky Stacy chose Lake Leelanau

Because of the beauty of Leelanau County, the architecture of Birchcroft and quality of North Lake Leelanau.

What makes this cottage unique

We fell in love with Birchcroft because of the beautiful stonework done by the turn of the century stone masons, the 98 leaded glass windows ,the beautiful trees, spacious grounds and the classic cedar shake architecture. We love North Lake Leelanau and it is one of the premier lakes in Northern Michigan.
