Come visit our peaceful, fun and family friendly retreat on Lime Lake in stunning Leelanau County, Michigan. Recently voted one of the world's most beautiful places, Leelanau County is known for its idyllic countryside, lakes, beaches, roadside fruit stands and beautiful scenery.
We are pleased to welcome you to our waterfront, Lighthouse inspired home. Nestled at the end of a private road on emerald green Lime Lake, the water is gin clear with depths suitable for wading and swimming (12-24 inches). The water reaches into the high 70 degree temperatures in the Summer. Bring your water toys and enjoy the fishing, tubing, skiing or a sunset cruise. Or relax in the sun, read and soak up the sounds of Michigan. We have a newly installed dock with a 12 x 10 foot platform at the end. There is a deck at the house that faces the lake and a firepit by the water's edge to roast marshmallows or sit by as you view the spectacular stars.
The house is extremely comfortable with a great room, open kitchen and dining area, family room loft and 3 bedrooms (King, Queen and 2 Twin over Full bunks). You can even view most of Lime Lake (and beyond) from our very own look out tower. We have two bathrooms (shower upstairs, tub/shower down) - one in the master suite upstairs and one shared downstairs.
Near miles of pristine Lake Michigan beaches on the National Lakeshore and situated almost halfway between Leland and Glen Arbor Michigan (off M-22), our home is the perfect spot for your family's vacation. We are surrounded by Sleeping Bear National Park with hiking trails, tennis, and skiing/snowmobiling in the winter months. If you are a golfer, enjoy the Manitou Passage Golf Club, an Arnold Palmer course, that is only 1/2 mile from the house.
It is a quick 25-30 minutes to Traverse City (and TC airport) where you can shop, take a sail on a Tall Ship, see a movie, attend one of its many summer festivals, have dinner or simply stroll along its main street. The Interlochen Academy for the Arts with its world renowned music and theater performances is also nearby. Michigan is becoming well known for its wineries, with more than two dozen local wineries nearby.
You will not run out of ways to relax or things to do at our special retreat.
