About the property

4 Bedroom / 3 Bathroom / 2200 Sq Ft Luxury Cottage with Modern Amenities

Our newly built home is conveniently located in the village of Leland, one block from the Fourth Street Lake Leelanau public access, and within walking distance to shops, restaurants, Leland harbor, and Fishtown.

We are only able to enjoy our home for about 6 weeks a year so we are making it available to responsible renters who will care for it as we would.

Our home features 3 bedrooms with a Queen Bed in each room and a loft with 2 built-in Queen Beds (see floor plan pictures). There are 3 full bathrooms (one on each floor). The cottage has a wrap-around porch, outdoor furniture, a gas grill, and an outdoor fire pit. Other features include a washer/dryer, HDTV, audio system with connections for your music player, built-in lighting, hardwood floors, tiled bathrooms, and a full kitchen.

About Michael Keen

We live and work in Asheville, North Carolina, but love to spend time in Leland.

Michael Keen purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Michael Keen chose Leland

We have family in Leland and we have rented several homes in the village before we built our own place. We prefer to be in the village within walking distance to everything that Leland has to offer.

What makes this cottage unique

We designed our place to have the cozy feel of a cottage, but with plenty of room and modern amenities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family loved our stay at the Fourth Street Cottage this summer! The home is absolutely beautiful and outfitted with everything you need. Location couldn't be better - down the street to public access Lake Leelanau, quick walk to downtown Leland and Lake Michigan. Our favorite thing was sitting on the big front porch reading. The owners have thought of everything to make the their home relaxing and enjoyable. Definitely hoping to stay there again next summer - it was just perfect!!

Great cottage

We had a wonderful stay. Due to weather our arrival date kept changing but the owners were very accommodating and worked with us. This cottage is centrally located in Leland. The home is well furnished and evident so much thought to every detail to make our stay enjoyable.

Lovely Leland and Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Our daughter and son-n-law's wedding was held in Leland this summer. We knew we needed a home large enough to accommodate part of our family who would be traveling there to celebrate the nuptials. Renting the FourthStreetCottage was one of the best decisions we made. It became our home-away-from-home while there. We had enough room for everyone to settle in, relax, and spread out while still offering a gathering space for our pre-post wedding picnics on the wrap-around porch. We also enjoyed grilling out and quiet family gatherings around the fire-pit in back. It was a calming way to start a "wedding week." Everything we needed to make our family comfortable was provided for our stay and more. From our beach outings, to formal dressing for the rehearsal and wedding day, it met all of our needs. Many of our extended family commented to us on how nice a home it was to stay in. Our only regret: "We wish we could of stayed longer!" Thanks Michael for sharing your beautiful home and Jane for your kindness in showing us around the home the previous year. Also, kudos to Katie for keeping it spotless!

Beautiful house with everything you need for a spectacular weekend

  • 5 of 5

I rented the cottage in Leland for a bachelorette party for 10. The house was perfect! Lovely flow from room to room, tastefully decorated, plenty of room to spread out; this house had it all! The ladies complimented me all weekend on the house, wonderful since all I had to do is book it and the owners did the rest.

The house is very well situated on the Leelanau Peninsula for wine tasting. We booked a limo with Paradise Tours and visited 5 wineries AND stop for lunch within our 4.5 hour tour.

Micheal is very nice and easy to work with. He responded to my emails promptly. The house was very clean and very well organized. One of the best rentals I've ever booked!

Modern home with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing. Everything is modern, and you'll be racking your brain to find something you wish this place had. Mike, the owner, was extremely responsive and truly cared that we enjoyed our stay. There is more than enough space, with 3 large bedrooms and a loft with 2 queen beds, and a full bathroom on each floor. It is only a block or so to Lake Leelanau, and a few blocks to Lake Michigan. If you have >5 people, want to be within an hour of everything in northern Michigan, and want modern amenities, this is the house for you. I cannot think of a single thing that needs to be added to this property. Mike was great to work with, and I hope to stay here again.
