About the Property

Nine bedrooms and 4 bathrooms between the two cottages

This two cottage estate is available as one package sleeping up to 20 people in 9 bedrooms with 4 bathrooms. This property is wonderful for family reunions and corporate retreats.

Penwood Estate sits on the east bank of North Lake Leelanau just past the point where the river meets Lake Leelanau. The estate has two unique cottages available as a package for family reunions or for corporate retreats or individually.

Gray Cottage, the biggest house, with its large front lawn is backed by a roomy colorfully decorated screened-in porch, and stands as a familiar sentinel to Leland River travelers who move in their boats from the Leland River into Lake Leelanau.

Several yards behind and slightly north of the main house stands Red Cottage, a once-upon-a-time carriage house, transformed into a comfortably rustic 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom cottage boasting a screened in porch that looks out on a gardened yard complete with outdoor seating and a grill.

Both cottages share the shoreline of the lake with its fire pit and lawn furniture. With waterfront availability come a boat slip or dock space for your own or a rented boat. A canoe and other water toys are also available for the pleasure of guests.

Car: Recommended

Penwood Estate is within walking distance of Lake Michigan beaches, famous Fishtown, a grocery store, several restaurants, and many unique and interesting shops. There are playgrounds, tennis courts, softball and soccer fields in the little town of Leland, as well as a post office and a gas station. There are also two churches in town and golf courses nearby. Some vacationers never sit in the driver's seat of their car for the week of their stay! If a guest brings a motor boat, everyone in the family or group can travel to the grocery store, the library, the historical museum, and restaurants via the water.
