About the owner: Michael and Laurie both work for the University of Michigan, live in Ann Arbor, and have been coming 'up north' for years. They and their two sons have rented cottages over the decades on many of the inland lakes in the the Sleeping Bear dunes area, and have fallen in love with Little Traverse Lake.
Why the Owner Chose Maple City, MI, USA:
This place has it all! Perched on a beautiful inland lake, with easy access--by foot, bike, or car--to Good Harbor and the Lake Michigan shoreline.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have found in all of our travels that the rolling hills, boundless lake shore, uncrowded sandy beaches, vineyards, orchards, fresh local food and charming villages of the Leelanau Peninsula are unparalleled.
