About the Property

Prime Private Lake Michigan Waterfront! 5 Bedrooms (sleeps 12)

Good Harbor Bay Estate is located just 3 miles south of historic Leland with direct frontage on America's most beautiful beach (Good Morning America 2012). The white sandy beach stretches into 37 miles of Sleeping Bear National Park, with ample opportunity for hiking, swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding and eagle sightings. It has breathtaking sunset views of both South and North Manitou islands as well as Pyramid Point. Right across from the lighthouse (crib) between the Manitou islands.

The estate has gorgeous private Lake Michigan water frontage and is the perfect setting for large family gatherings as well as small romantic getaways and special anniversaries. It includes 5 bedrooms, 3.5 bath, private TV Room, cathedral ceiling living room with large fireplace, dining room/wet bar, stainless steel gourmet kitchen with wine cooler, a wonderful screened porch, upper and lower decks, outdoor shower, lower level play room/gym. The estate has free wireless high-speed internet, cable TV and free nationwide calling. The spectacular sunsets and awesome views all the way from Pyramid Point to Whaleback along with the sandy beach invite you to use our kayaks and stand-up paddle boards (both included), make a campfire by the beach or simply sit, rejuvenate and enjoy this peaceful setting.

While the Estate is nestled into a very secluded frontage, it is in close proximity to restaurants, historic sites, the Traverse City Film fest, golfing and shopping. Leelanau County is known for its extensive and beautiful road-biking routes, wine-tours, boating and hiking.

Sorry, absolutely no smoking please. Not zoned for weddings.
