About the property

House On Sandy Beach Perfect For Family Groups! - Sleeps 12-up to 17

Cedarshore is the perfect getaway for large families or multiple families looking to spend time at the beach!

The beach is soft sand to the South and perfect for rock pickers to the North. The pergola is a wonderful spot for reading a book or having cocktails. And for those who love the sun but don't like the sand they will enjoy sitting on the deck looking out on the magnificent 180 degree view. Need a little shade? Head to the other side of the cottage and enjoy the enclosed, very private, serenity garden. There is something for everyone here.

The lower level features a bunk room with two sets of bunk beds. One set is two twins with an additional pull out twin trundle. The second set is a twin over a full bed, with an additional twin trundle. This bedroom will sleep 7. It has a sliding door that lets in lots of light and exits to the beach.

Directly attached to the bunk room is another bedroom with a twin daybed, also with a trundle, and an additional queen bed, allowing for 4 people to sleep here. It too has a sliding door that allows for direct access to the beach and pergola. The lower level also features a large family room with a TV and fireplace, full kitchen, washer and dryer, and a half-bath. Easy access to an outdoor shower with privacy walls.

Upstairs is a galley kitchen, a stackable washer and dryer combo, large living room, 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths. Not to mention the breathtaking views of Grand Traverse Bay.

The master suite features a full bathroom, queen sized bed, a sliding door out to the deck, and a view overlooking the bay. Sunrises can be enjoyed in bed.

The two additional bedrooms have queen sized beds and look out to the serenity garden. These two bedrooms share a full bath in the hall. There is an additional half bath on this level.

There is an outdoor shower located just outside the sliding door to the bunk room for easily hosing down children; and adults will enjoy it as well. Many guests use this as their only shower. We would love for you to come and fall in love with this spot as much as we have.

Cedarshore is located: Six miles North of the charming village of Northport, Michigan and two miles south of Grand Traverse Light at the tip of the Leelanau Peninsula.

Our rental weeks are from Sunday late afternoon, to the following Sunday morning.

About William Anderson

The Anderson family (from Cincinnati) first rented a waterfront Northport cottage on Grand Traverse Bay in 1936, and rented there for years, finally purchasing a cottage in 1951. That cottage, about two miles to the south is still in the family. We rented another place for 25 years and only bought Cedarshore in 2012.

The 4th generation now talks about their times spent there almost every day throughout year.

William Anderson purchased this house in 2012

Why William Anderson chose Northport

When the cottage we rented for 25 years passed to the next generation in 2011 we realized our children (and even young grandchildren) had been coming to Northport all their lives and that was coming to an end. We started looking and fell in love with this cottage which had had only one owner since 1976. It offered an opportunity we couldn't pass up.
