Aside from vacation properties I also host many events and weddings at our farm on Lake Leelanau ' Crooked Creek Ranch' which is directly across the lake from this cottage and our nearby Vineyard "French Valley Vineyards" also welcomes weddings and private events.( Our new tasting room will be located at the Vineyard Inn on Suttons Bay .

Why Pamela Leonard chose Traverse City

With over 25 wineries now on the Leelanau Peninsula , this darling cottage is located smack dab in the middle of many of them, you won't have far to drive or bike far, if you are sampling at the wineries! Other cottages are adjacent and can be rented together.

What makes this cabin unique

Bring your boat ( up to 16') free protected marina on site.

Freshly remodeled and refurbished. New kitchen with Corian countertops. Firepit, terrific sunsets, beautiful country atmosphere yet only 5 miles to Traverse City , where activities abound. Great shopping, restaurants, beaches and nightlife.

Like to Fish? The best fishing is right in front of the cottage !
