About the Property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bath with full kitchen/laundry and stunning lake view.

This unique two bedroom cabin is like nothing you've ever seen or stayed at before. Located in the woods at the tip of Leelanau County, it lies on the shores of beautiful Cathead Bay - a natural, pristine, sandy bay with shallow water for great swimming, kayaking, and water sports. This is the getaway location with access to an inland lake for fishing, bird watching, and hiking. Miles of uninterrupted beach makes for pleasant walks searching for Petoskey stones or enjoying the ever changing shoreline, natural dunes, and area wildlife.

This distinctive cabin sleeps 4 with two Queen Beds. It includes a fire-pit, horseshoes, gas-grill, and an open deck that allows for awesome sunrises, sunsets, and star-gazing. Don't let your fantastic 'Up North' experience end with summer. This area is well known for its spectacular Fall Color Tour. You can enjoy being in the center of the amazing color changes with biking, golfing, hiking and wine tasting.

The Cabin at Cathead Bay is a place to take you 'Off The Grid' and enjoy a peaceful, affordable get away.

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Northport, MI, USA:
This lakefront property was purchased in the early 1900's by the Bradley family and passed down to the current owner. The cabin was started in 1968 and became a summer working project for the entire family.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Clear days provide views of both North and South Fox Islands. Mackinac sailboats can be seen during the annual race. Not uncommon for sailboats to anchor in the bay overnight. Light from the Lighthouse can be seen at night along with excellent star gazing. This property has the best section of beach on Cathead Bay!
