About Larry Fleis

My wife and I purchased this home in May 2011. It is gorgeous and we look forward to the day we can retire in the Lake Leelanau area. We get out as often as we can and rent the vacation homes at the other times. See our other vacation home listing on the vrbo site property number 169229.

Why Larry Fleis chose Northwest

We love the area and plan to retire here. We love the lake and amenities in the area. The 20+ mile long lake has so many things you can do or places to visit on the lake.

What makes this house unique

All the things we like to do for our recreation are in the area, close by, or available on the water.

Not just a summer getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property for a ski weekend/New Years getaway and it didn't disappoint. The home which comfortably accommodated 10 guests provides many amenities and a convenient location to winter sport lovers. With a pond right out back skating and ice fishing are both options that were enjoyed, as well as only being 15 minutes away from the nearest ski hill. The owners have set up the rental in a way that guests will never go without. Hot tub and grill were a plus as well as fire place made for a nice ambiance.

Perfect winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

We made last-minute plans and we were very lucky that this beautiful home is available. Tucked back on Lake Leelanau this home has it all with a wonderful open entertaining space. Even in the winter time you could enjoy the outdoors, fire pit, hot tub, Grill, etc. Larry is a wonderful host and was there to answer any questions we had. Already planning a summertime return visit to enjoy Lake Leelanau. 20 minutes from Traverse City, but this is your own oasis.

Great family vacation setting

  • 5 of 5

My family of 7 adults rented this lovely home in September and we had a great time enjoying the house, the setting, the neighboring towns and the local wineries. There is a lot to do and see but this is a great house when you need some downtime. I highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a vacation in Michigan.

Beautiful well maintained waterfront home, this property has it all.

  • 5 of 5

We rent a house every year during the Harvest Stompede weekend. This home with all it has to offer was truly a great find for our group.

Definitely at the top of our list in all categories.

This property was clean inside and out and we found the kitchen well stocked with everything you made need to prepare a meal.

The outdoor kitchen is truly amazing and after a day of wine tasting we relaxed in the hot tub. The waterfront is sandy and we did enjoy some night swimming.

I would not hesitate to recommend this home to any potential renters as this was a PERFECT vacation home.

With all this home has to offer you can't go wrong.

Thanks for the rental of your home,

Fantastic week on Lake Leelanau

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay in this home on Lake Leelanau in July. Our family included me and my husband, our daughter and son-in-law and their three children ages 7, 5 and 16 months.

The house was great-open and spacious and nicely decorated. We particularly loved the outdoor space-covered patio, open patio, lots of seating and dining space with umbrellas, outdoor kitchen, and our grandsons' favorite-the fire pit for cooking marshmallows and making s'mores. The sand pit was also a big hit with the three grandchildren.

We rented the pontoon boat which was a lot of fun. We were on the water every day and most days a couple of times. We would highly recommend this rental along with the house.

The neighbors were very friendly and helpful and fun to talk to since they live in the area year round.

House is within driving distance of lots of fun things to do-Sutton's Bay, Fishtown and Leland, and Sleeping Bear Dunes. We loaded our bikes and were able to enjoy a couple of great bike trails in the area.

Homeowners Larry and Jackie are wonderful hosts. They responded quickly to inquiries when we got to the house and to questions during the week. We knew we would need more oil for the boat before the week was out and they came out right away, rather than responding what you often hear which is "we will be there within 24 hours".

We would highly recommend this rental. We are already booked for 2017 and plan to have another wonderful week on the lake.
