Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We, Carol and Jim Ashmore, are excited to be opening our home to you. Carol was born and raised in Traverse City while Jim came from Stockbridge. For over 30 years we lived and worked down state. Returning to Leelanau County and being able to live here have been a dream come true for us. Against the Wind is our personal residence from November 1st to May 1st of the year. In May we vacate the house for our summer guests. ATW also has a year round rental, with a separate entrance and separate driveway on the lower level of the house. Our tenants are a young couple expecting twins in October. They work hard, are not "party animals." In two reviews a guest said they heard faint noises from the lower level, but nothing that would prevent them from renting from us again. Personally, lower level noise has never been a problem. When we renovated ATW we made special efforts to sound proof the house as much as possible.

Why the Owner Chose Lake Leelanau, MI, USA (City):
Family roots and a deep appreciation for the beautiful natural landscape of the area have always been a magnet for us. Carol's family has been in Leelanau County since the mid-1800's. Her mother was born and raised in Northport. Many of her cousins still live in the area. We enjoy walking the many beaches, swimming and looking for Petoskey stones, riding our bikes and sometimes just going for a ride. There is no other place we want to call home!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We're sure you will enjoy the morning sun streaming in the living room window and the evening sun warming the back yard patio. Within walking distance you will find the friendly community of Lake Leelanau with three very different places to eat, a distillery, a winery, a coffee shop and a pastry shop. Nearby Suttons Bay offers a lovely cinema and unique shopping. Historic Fishtown on Lake Michigan is a five mile drive to Leland. Traverse City, with all it offers the vacationer, is only 20 miles away. Perhaps you would like a day trip to the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore in Glen Arbor or an evening outing in Peshawbestown at the Leelanau Sands Casino. Our central location gives you a multitude of options, all close to home. And when you return home from your day's adventures, you will feel the comfort and relaxation that only home can give you.
