About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

If you love the beach but hate the crowds and commercial activity, this is the perfect vacation spot for you. Nestled in 3 acres of beautiful mature forest, this home is tucked in a small dune on 200 feet of private, sandy Lake Michigan beach. It’s a mere 14 steps down the charming walkway from the woods to the secluded beach. The home provides privacy and relaxation while offering modern amenities. All rooms in the open floor plan have expansive views of the Big Lake with a great view of the Manitou Islands, and on a clear day, the Fox Islands are also visible in the distance. From the large deck just off the kitchen, you may see our resident eagle diving for fish. You can enjoy an easy meal using the gas grill, or relax by an open fire in the fire pit.

The home sleeps six with two upstairs bedrooms and a Queen-sized sleeper sofa in the living room. All linens are provided. The kitchen includes microwave, dishwasher, full oven/stove, and is generally stocked with standard complimentary provisions. The two full bathrooms (one of which is conveniently located in the walkout, near the access to the lake) include a glass-doored tile shower upstairs, and a full shower/tub combo in the lower level.

Whether you enjoy active water sports, shopping, antiquing, fine dining or gambling, Sutton’s Bay, Leland and Northport are all within less than a 20 minute drive. Many local Michigan vineyards provide wine tastings, and both farm stand produce and freshly caught fish from Lake Michigan are seasonally available nearby.

Driving in, the home is located on the transition between a gravel Natural Beauty Road and paved drive, offering a great place to take a jog or enjoy a walk through the woods.
It’s less than an hour’s drive to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park, recently named the nation’s most beautiful location by ABC’s “Good Morning America.” The Park offers great hiking and stargazing opportunities, and even an occasional meteor shower. If you spend time enjoying our home on the Leelanau Peninsula, you, like many of our visitors, will keep coming back.
