Beautiful home in a great location. They had everything we needed there.
Located on a quiet lake with a nice beach, this home was everything we were looking for. Mary Lou kept in touch and made sure we had what we needed. We'll be back next year.
The house was perfect for our large group and Mary Lou was very welcoming! She answered our questions quickly. The yard was safe for our young kids, far off the road, and the water was shallow. We enjoyed the kayaks and jumping off the dock! So much to do in the area and the house was close to the dunes and historic villages. We would definitely recommend this cottage and hope to return!
Hope to see you all again! Thank you!!
Wonderful lake cottage
Beautiful location, convenient to dunes and multiple beaches. Cottage had everything we needed plus more!
Private Location, Beautiful Scenery, Close Drive to Town
We really enjoyed our first stay at the Irwin Cottage! There was plenty of space for our group of 7 to sleep and spread out. The kitchen was modern and well-quipped, and the outdoor space was very private and relaxing- perfect for our young children to play on the sandy, shallow beach and for the adults to enjoy kayaking across the quiet lake. The location was great for driving to nearby Glen Arbor, Leland, Suttons Bay, and other attractions. We also took advantage of hiking through trails across the road to Lake Michigan. Hope to visit again!
Family getaway for decades
Staying right at the edge of Little Traverse Lake for two weeks every year for nearly twenty years recalibrate my families lives. The setting is beautiful with lakefront beach and the cabin cozy with updated kitchen, perfect for family fun and relaxation. Right across the street is Good Harbor Bay of Lake Michigan, a georgious beach with miles of walking and swimming seldom crossing paths of others. Neighboring Leland and Suttons Bay are favorite community spots filled with good food, art and boating. The Arts Center at Interlocken is magical with world class artists and aspiring students. Our family is inspired every year as well as relaxed and happy. We feel very blessed to be able to rent the Irwin Cabin every year and we hope to continue for many years to come.
Thanks, Phil. We hope to see you for at least 20more years!!
Little Traverse Lake is between Leland and its Fishtown and Glen Arbor which is close to the National Lakeshore's Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes. In 2011, this area was voted the Most Beautiful Place in America. The Leelanau Peninsula is truly a beautiful area.
