Good Harbor Bay Beauty! Stunning views in a serene location. Built in 1952, it has classic cottage charm and is only a few minutes south of Leland. Spacious deck looks out towards the sunset views over both North and South Manitou Islands, and the expanse of Good Harbor Bay, from Pyramid Point in the south to Whaleback in the north. Ships pass on the horizon, past the expanses of green beach grass, past the pure sand beach that borders the clear, fresh waters of Lake Michigan. The peaceful environment and natural beauty of this property is unparalleled. 3 Bedrooms, 2 full baths; sleeps 8.

About Gina McFadden
I have been coming "Up North" my whole life. As a child I played on the sandy beaches of Lake Michigan, climbed the dunes, and splashed in the rivers and lakes that grace the area. As an adult, I now watch my two girls enjoy the same magical experiences of my childhood. I manage two properties in the area - one on Platte Lake and one on Good Harbor. My passion is to help you and your family/friends enjoy the stunning beauty that is Northern Michigan.
Gina McFadden purchased this Cottage in 2015

Perfect Chilly Fall Get Away
We loved this place. Beautiful picture windows facing the lake, close to Leland, Glen Arbor, Suttons Bay. Well tended older cabin with just enough space, comfortable furniture, open plan kitchen/living room for good conversations while cooking together. Weather was cold/sleet with stunning sunsets: the kind of place where you'd love to cozy up and sit on the couch and watch the waves roll in (which is what we did most of the week). If the weather was better, we would have loved sitting on the porch or wading in the water down at the beach. Great rocky beach area and picnic table.
Loved it all
We are so very happy you enjoyed your stay, Nicolaas! We look forward to welcoming you back soon to The Shores at Good Harbor.
We had a wonderful vacation at Gina’s vacation property. The location of the cottage right on the water is amazing and the view can’t be beat. The cottage is clean and stocked with necessities, like paper towels, etc which was helpful. We had a great time exploring the neighboring towns and the Dunes are a short drive away as well. We hope to come back again another time!
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! We look forward to welcoming you back to The Shores at Good Harbor soon!
I would recommend The Shores at Good Harbor for your next vacation .
The Shores at Good Harbor was everything that we had hoped it would be . Rustic cottage just steps away from Lake Michigan . Beautiful sunsets from the deck with awesome views of Pyramid Point ,Manitou Islands and Whaleback Point. Great location for day trips to Black Star Vineyards , Suttons Bay , Glen Arbor, Sleeping Bear Dunes and Leland/ Fishtown . Very well equipped and charming inside , this cottage was extremely comfortable with a warm and inviting ambience. My family can't wait until next summer and our return to The Shores at Good Harbor !
So glad you enjoyed your stay! We look forward to welcoming you back to The Shores at Good Harbor again soon!

Excellent Sunset Views! Great Location!
My husband and I loved staying here. If you would like to just stay and relax, the back porch and the short trek down to the lake is perfect. The sunset is just beautiful witnessed from inside the home or outside. If you like to sight see, there are small towns in both directions that you should not miss, as well as Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park. Kitchen had ample supplies for cooking. Main bedroom was spacious and very comfortable. Checking in was super easy and the owner was very nice and accommodating. We would definitely stay here again.
Thank you for your thoughtful review of The Shores at Good Harbor, Christine. We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to welcoming you back sometime soon!
Five minute drive into Leeland and historic Fishtown.
