Why Lou Ann West, Solutions For You, LLC chose Northwest

Breath taking views, ever-changing landscapes, waterfront, sandy beach, fire pit outdoors.

2 miles south of the lighthouse, with walking trails, boating, swimming etc. So much more than just 'up north'.

What makes this house unique

Jones Point, named after the owners, has been in the same family for all of its 37 years. The house was carefully nestled into the land so the natural beauty was left as undisturbed as possible. After discovering this beautiful area with its ever-changing landscapes, the owners happily welcomed friends and family to come and share this wonderful place that they love so very much. Evidence of another love, classic cars, can be found throughout the home. Three beautiful sitting areas all have spectacular views of West Grand Traverse Bay.

Family get-away

  • 5 of 5

Our large family of 13 spent a fabulous week in this charming home. The combination of rustic wooden beams, wood and stone added to the character and beauty of this home. There was plenty of space for all of us to relax, spread out and enjoy ourselves. The beach was by far our favorite place! We spent hours enjoying the lake, digging in the sand, flying kites and relaxing. When we weren't at the lake we spent time sightseeing and traveling to the lighthouse, farmers markets, and sand dunes. Great vacation spot!

Wonderful Neighborhood, Friendly Beach, Amenities of Home!

  • 5 of 5

Having visited the Leelanau Peninsula many times in my childhood, I chose it to celebrate my 50th birthday with family! The house was ideal for me and my husband, our two kids and significant others and our moms. Their is plenty of living space to spread out and just hang out, yet still have privacy. My husband and I enjoyed the privacy of the downstairs bedroom which also is how you walk out to the beach. The deck is amazing and one night we did see two does with their little ones.

The beach was a little smaller than what I imagined, but was still wonderful to walk each night and spend the day playing in the water. We found a turtle as well as a couple of petoskey stones. We rented Kayaks and bikes from body balance in Suttons Bay. Kayaks were perfect at this location and we used them regularly. The fire pit was also used regularly as all necessities are right there! If you have someone elderly or with trouble walking though, the path to the beach is a little difficult. We found it easier for my mom to use the public walk way which borders the property.

The kitchen was amazing and we found everything you could possibly need to make a delightful meal! All sorts of pots and pans, a griddle, coffee maker, plates, we never ran out of anything!

All in all I loved the place and would highly recommend it! The subdivision this home is located in is truly amazing and friendly. If I could, I would move there!

Family fun in Northport

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time! The house was beautiful has a perfect setup for a large family vacation! We had plenty of room to be together during breakfast and dinner, but there was also room to branch off to the sunroom or entertainment room for quiet reflection or playing games, watching TV. The kitchen was well equipped with everything needed for our barbecues. During our days, we enjoyed the gorgeous sandy beach for sunbathing, swimming, or just laying on our rafts while floating in the water. Long walks on the beach allowed us to see spectacular evening skies. We laid on our backs to stargaze and saw falling stars, satellites, and gorgeous constellations. We enjoyed wonderful bonfires each night singing songs and eating popcorn. A quick trip to the sand dunes was lots of fun and created wonderful pictures. The city of Northport was quaint and everyone was very friendly and accommodating. Leland and Suttons Bay are also since cities to visit for ice cream and shopping. There are so many wineries with wonderful and unique choices for sipping. Our rooms were clean and although rare, the bedding was comfortable, allowing for a rested sleep. I can't say enough about the house. It was perfect for us and because of LouAnn's hospitality, we were well taken care of. Any questions were answered in a very timely manner. She even recommended a few 'local' spots to grab a quick famous local meal. I know the family will remember this special vacation for many years. Lots of laughs and wonderful memories!!!!

We have had a tough year and my adult daughter did not want to celebrate either Thanksgiving or Christmas at our home. No stockings, no presents, no tree, no meal with what was left of our family.We all understood and decided to try something completely different. I messed around until 2 weeks before Christmas. Desperate, I decided I was going to find a place in one evening. I went through VRBO and found several. While I was still searching, I received a call from Lou Ann. Feeling a little uncomfortable, I explained our situation. She told me she thought she had the perfect place. It was... This could be a really long story but I will tell you that Lou Ann, the home, the area, the small towns close to the home plus Traverse City, and the owner have helped us begin to recover, heal, and have truly a wonderful Christmas. When we arrived, it was dark so we couldn't see the beach area very well. We were greeted with a beautiful live Christmas tree that only Santa's elves could have set up so nicely. The home is large and beautiful and very clean. Each room is decorated with obvious love and care. The fireplace is gorgeous in the living room and another downstairs in the family room. There are interesting books to read, cards to play, large screen tv in the basement to enjoy. The kitchen is very handsome with all the amenities plus a double oven, a nice small bar, a handy pantry and a beautiful kitchen table with another tv, so the chef can cook and watch the sports games. Now on to the wintertime Lake Michigan beach. No problem with it being cold and snowy, the beach is wide, clean, and stunning. We saw four white swans enjoying the water as if it was summer, right in front of the house. The view from the house out to the beach is breathtaking. There is a wonderful deck that a large family could spend in the summer relaxing on. All the pine trees in the woods, with the intense smell of pine, behind the house were like a step back in time. We enjoyed a sleigh ride at a place recommended by Lou Ann. It was outstanding with hot chocholate at the top of the hill in a cabin to take off the chill. We ate wonderful hamburgers AND dessert at a place called Happy Hour on the way home. If I am too bubbly about this place, it's because it is truly a special place. Each one of us felt that we were given extra care by Lou Ann, the owner, and truly surrounded by beautiful God's country. I would recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a home away from home.

Heaven in Northport

  • 5 of 5

This home exceeded all of my expectations. Way more room than we needed for our family of 4, but on the other hand perfect for entertaining friends who live in Northport. Kitchen is amazing with absolutely everything you need to cook and serve a crowd. Our one rainy day was spent going into Leland. Upon return to house we played poker with the whole official poker set-up.The sunny days were spent on the spectacular beach. Books galore! I was in literary heaven. I was in Northport heaven.
