Property description

This cottage is the perfect getaway if you are looking for a private and secluded vacation spot! We are located at the end of the private Cherry Home Shores community right up against the forest with lots to explore! We have a large front deck with gorgeous views of Grand Traverse Bay of Lake Michigan. We provide 3 kayaks for plenty of family fun. There are 4 private beaches in the community for tenant use. There are tennis courts, sand volleyball, picnic areas, and a playground. There are also private hiking trails for wildlife viewing and bird watching. The neighborhood is perfect for biking, jogging or walking.
There are many attractions and activities in the Northport area. Our favorites include Sleeping Bear Dunes, many wineries to tour and do tastings, historic Fishtown in Leeland with shopping and lakefront restaurants, and marinas with boat rentals and fishing expeditions. There is also a casino and lighthouse museum to enjoy.
