Truly a wonderful vacation spot in any season. Enjoy our newly renovated cottage (2014) in a secluded area of the West Wind Resort full of amenities for a great vacation. Whether you’re an active family or a quiet couple looking for maximum rest and relaxation our cottage is perfect. Our 1900 sq. ft.. cottage is at the south end of the resort. Our cottage is not lakefront but has a nice lakeview (see photo of view). We are a short 150 feet walk to the shared shore of S. Lake Leelanau featuring 400 ft. of beautiful sandy bottom and a manicured beach. Imagine sitting on a beautiful sand beach while the small kids play in shallow water and older children can swim just a few feet away. No steps…perfect for young children or the elderly. Also included is a slip in the private marina for boats up to 19 ft. Enjoy the beautiful view of the lake from the decking along the front of the cottage or enjoy the back decking with gas grill and picnic table for private meals.
Our cottage features 3 bedrooms: two very large bedrooms both with a king beds and walk in closets. Both rooms can also accommodate an inflatable bed or crib. The third bedroom is a bunk room with sleeping for 5. (kids love it). The fully equipped kitchen with updated cabinets includes dishwasher, microwave, blender, coffeemaker, etc. The 20 x 20 great room features a gas fireplace with plenty of comfortable seating and a futon. The dining room features a big table with seating for 8 comfortably. Other features include a mud room with washer and dryer. New flat screen 50 in TV with wireless internet, books and games.
Rental includes fine quality bed linens and towels that are new in 2014. We have vacationed throughout the great State of Michigan, renting homes along the way. We know what a great rental experience is and will provide that to you.

This cottage is central to all the best vacation attractions in Northern Michigan; Traverse City (11 miles), Suttons Bay (7 miles), Leland (12 miles), Sleeping Bear Dunes (30 miles), Interlochen (21 miles featuring a superb summer concert schedule) , and many other parks, attractions, and amusements.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We are native Michiganders who love all of Michigan but especially the Leelanau Peninsula and spectacular Lake Leelanau. This cottage is a dream come true for us and are looking forward to sharing it with good renters.

Why the Owner Chose Traverse City, MI, USA:
Location, location, location. We vacation with our married children and grandchildren. We have many varying interests and this location is a place where everyone is happy. We like to spend the day on the lake or biking on the Leelanau Trail and then head out to Traverse City for some night life or to Lake Michigan for an ice cream and the most awesome sunsets you will ever see!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our cottage is in a resort consisting of 11 cottages on almost 4 acres and 400 feet of beautiful lakefront. Our cottage is the largest cottage located on a quarter acre with a private backyard. We feel it is the best location in the resort even though it is not waterfront. Having your boat in a private slip just a few feet from your cottage is a real benefit with this cottage.
