About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

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 4 kayaks for plenty of family fun. 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.

About The Owner

I am a retiree from Clarkston, MI. I have 3 grown children and 2 grandchildren. We all love summer vacations in our cottage on the lake.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1992

Why The Owner chose Northwest

Cherry Home Shores appealed to me because of the quite and secluded area on the water. We have our own boat and kayaks to enjoy the lake.

Comfortable stay, small beach

  • 3 of 5

My family has stayed in the community before, but this is the first time we were not allowed to use any of the amenities! The community has four beaches and hiking trails, but all the areas have "NO RENTERS" signs posted. Very disappointing because it was windy during our stay, making the beach at the home very small (waves). It has always been our favorite area to stay, so hopefully the HOA changes their limitations.

The home was fantastic, with a great deck and grass area. I couldn't be happier with the home itself! So comfy! I don't want to deter anyone from renting this awesome home, just be aware that "renters" aren't allowed anywhere except the rental property.

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay. The accommodations exceeded our expectations. The view from the deck was spectacular. The beds and linens are comfortable. The location was perfect. We enjoyed biking on the Leland Trail kayaking and paddle boarding on Lake Michigan. Thank you for the wonderful stay.

Adorable cabin on the water

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful trip with our children ages 8, 6, and 3. There were so many things to do in the area we didn't even get to see all the sites we had planned on. It was hard to pull ourselves away from the cottage because of the superbly scenic and peaceful location. We enjoyed both the woods and the water, and we certainly appreciated the use of the kayaks and bicycles. Even if the weather was cool, we warmed up near the fire ring or by the gas fireplace indoors after playing in the water. One negative was it turned out to cost quite a bit more than the advertised nightly rate once all the taxes and fees were applied. It was a stretch to fit it in the budget for our family of 5. However, this is a very high quality rental if you can afford it!

Wow! Really enjoyed our Stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a great home! We loved the sunrise views, the comfy beds, and the close proximity to numerous other beaches for rock hounding. We were fortunate enough to have a calm, warm Saturday to enjoy kayaking on the lake as well. The home was clean and well stocked with dishes and cooking utensils. We would love to return, but the property looks well booked during the summer months.
