This is a truly special vacation home for all seasons - with family or with friends!
Summer (peak season): Enjoy a day at the beach, take a sailing lesson, play golf or tennis, take a book and a picnic basket to one of the islands for a day trip, dine on the patio at a favorite restaurant, grab and ice cream cone in the harbor!
Spring / Fall: The best seasons to taste the flavors of the Peninsula! Visit many of Leelanau County's tasting rooms (do a wine tour! - Leelanau Peninsula Vinter's Association website is a great place to start!). Be sure to visit in the Fall, the season's colors are MIND BLOWING.
Winter: Settle in for a cozy day of reading and relaxation, or get out there and enjoy the snow! Cross country skiing trails are throughout the area! Downhill skiing / snowboarding just a quick trip away! Sledding at the Country Club is great way to spend the afternoon followed by a delicious dinner at the "Bird" - Ethnic Nights are Wednesdays and Thursdays and are always tasty!

About: My name is Carolyn and I am managing this lovely home for my parents. I have spent several years traveling abroad, I have lived in Ann Arbor, Los Angeles, Austin, and now Chicago...and I am speaking honestly when I say that Leland is still my favorite place to vacation! My husband and I are both architects. We enjoy the outdoors, wine and FOOD. My parents, the owners of this cute house, are both in the restaurant business. My father was raised in Leland and descends from a long line of Leland locals. My mother, a native Michigander, spent much of her youth in the Leland area where she eventually settled down with dad. Their dedication to the County and Leland life runs deep. We're all in love with the area!
Why Leland, MI, USA:
After having lived in town for 18 years and now visited as a vacationer, I am convinced that the quality of life in Leland CANNOT be beat. Our sleepy little town will keep you active and outdoors spring - fall, and will give you necessary pause and repose in the winter (though don't be fooled - there's LOTS to see in do in the snow too!!!). Leland really has it all. I miss it terribly while I am away...always looking forward to the next visit.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The Chandler Cottage has the best of everything. It's location is prime - downtown is easily accessible, the beach is yours to enjoy! ...And yet, in your down time while you're relaxing and recovering for your next adventure, the cottage provides quiet sanctuary away from the bustle of the town. Small, Midwestern town living at its ABSOLUTE BEST.
