McDonald cottage on Leelanau

  • 4 of 5

Tina and I had a very nice time in spite of the storms and 50 mph winds the first three nights. Because of the winds I did not put my boat in the water, but Bingham launch is so close, it was not an issue. Bed was very comfortable. I got way too much sleep. Enjoyed my conversations with Charley. We have already left a deposit for our stay next year.

Regards, jim and tina gracyk

Beautiful, Clean and so Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this sweet cottage in early July 2016 and fell in love. The location is ideal; the home is clean, and the owners are fantastic. We can't say enough about the peaceful backyard and the wonderful views. Close to TC and Leeland but with a view like that you won't want to leave. One of the best points of this property (besides the sweet backyard) is the owners who make your stay comfortable and help you feel at home. Definitely recommended.

Nice, clean cottage on Lake Leelanu

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two dogs stayed one week here. Modest cottage was clean and owners ,next door ,were very nice.

Location was great. A easy trip ten to fifteen minute trip to Traverse City, Leeland or Sutton's Bay by car and 1.5 mile bike ride to the TART trail.

Lake easy to swim in and kayaks provided. Our dogs loved jumping from dock and swimming in lake.

Definitely recommend.
