Property description

The Bluestone Cottage is a lovely, well-appointed house, which sleeps 10-12, within walking distance to Lake Michigan beaches and to the picturesque town of Leland with great restaurants, cafes, galleries, shopping and Historic Fishtown!

Please keep in mind we reserve Sunday to Sunday in Prime Season June 18-Sept 10.

The Bluestone Cottage is named for the unique stones, Leland blues, found only on our pristine Lake Michigan beaches. The in-town location provides easy access to Historic Fishtown, Lake Michigan beaches, boating on Lake Leelanau and restaurants in town. Just a short drive to many wineries, Traverse City and Glen Arbor and The Sleeping Bear Dunes.

This stylish cottage, with all fresh interiors, has plenty of room for 10-12 people, and would work well for multiple families. 5 Bedrooms (King, 2 Queen, 4 Twins, pull-out), 3 Baths, open Living/Dining room, front porch and back deck for grilling. Guests love our well-designed interiors and luxury linens!

The Bluestone Cottage is a quick 3 minute walk to the secluded North Beach on Lake Michigan, and just 3 blocks from Fishtown and the heart of Leland. Guests love that they can walk everywhere from The Bluestone Cottage on quiet back streets.

The Bluestone Cottage is a great location in the Spring and Fall too. Leelanau County is lively with great restaurants, easy access to Traverse City, stunning Leelanau Conservancy hiking trails, the TART bike trail, superior golf courses, new tennis and basketball courts in nearby Suttons Bay and award-winning wine and microbrewery tours -- hard ciders too!

Recent reviews: 'Very nice accommodations for our group of eight. We loved the location. The kitchen was well-equipped. Everything gave a clean, well-maintained impression. I would highly recommend it to others.'

'The house is fantastic' Guest, July
'The house was perfect for us' From Chicago, February

Enjoy the cool Michigan evenings on the front porch with garden views, the private back deck with charcoal grill, and a screen porch off one of the Queen bedrooms.

Leland is the perfect place to enjoy your free time, whether you love to walk on endless Lake Michigan beaches, boat on Lake Leelanau, shop in the quaint town of Leland, go wine tasting or explore farther and see all of gorgeous Leelanau County.

The Schoolhouse Cottage in Suttons Bay, on a quiet street in the Village, has lots of charm. Built as a schoolhouse for the Lutheran church, now it's a gracious home with 4 bedrooms (Sleeps 8-10), 2 bathrooms, large living and dining rooms and updated kitchen. Enjoy evenings on the outdoor patio with grill, or walk to town for an Italian ice or catch a movie at the Bay Theatre. All within a 3 minute walk!

Want to be on the water, or looking to bring your boat on vacation? Consider the luxurious White Birch Cottage on the Narrows of Lake Leelanau (VRBO 610555). Enjoy a super-comfortable and relaxing vacation in this well-designed waterfront home which sleeps 10-12. Relax on the porch overlooking the picturesque Narrows, lounge on the spacious dock enjoying the view, kayak through the adjacent Leelanau Conservancy property, or walk to town for tastings at Northern Latitudes and The Boathouse Vineyard.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Our family of four lives in Grand Rapids and we escape to Leelanau County every chance we get! We love walking the beaches with our Golden Retriever, hiking and geocaching throughout the county, waterskiing and tubing on pristine Lake Leelanau, and exploring new restaurants and wineries!

Why the Owner Chose Leland, MI, USA:
The Bluestone Cottage gives us a chance to be just one block from the most hidden and desirable beach in Leelanau and just a short walk along the lakefront back streets to Leland, the most charming town up north and one of 'America's Best 8 Lake Towns.'

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We love the generous size of all the 4 bedrooms, the classic front porch, private back deck and 3-season screen porch for early mornings and we love being in-town Leland.
