Property description

Omena cottage description:
From the vantage point of a wide enclosed porch of this classic summer cottage is a place to view the turquoise blue of Omena Bay, sunsets, passing boats, to catch a breeze and find calm. This cherished cottage rests in a woodsy landscape at the west facing curve of the bay. It was built, as were other cottages of this vintage, as an annex to the Hotel Leelanau as a summer retreat. The kitchen and more modern conveniences were added much later. This is a picturesque setting, a great place to dock a boat, swim and enjoy cocktails or write your next novel in the shade of an octagonal gazebo near the shore.
Our cottage sits on a natural rocky shore line with a small slice of sand at the foot of the dock. For those that want more sand, there is a public sandy beach within walking distance.
This beautiful vintage cottage on OmenaBay features 3 bedrooms.
1 1/2 baths. Shower only (no tub). Sleeps up to 6. With 1 Queen bed,1 Full bed, 2 Twin Beds. A spacious living room/dining area and an enclosed porch provides plenty of room to stretch out and relax.

Omena Village and Regional Charm:

Located on the Leelanau Peninsula between Suttons Bay and North Port, Omena offers peace and quiet and easy access to all the Leelanau attractions. Enjoy dinner and a movie in Suttons Bay, 7 miles south or take in a 'Free Music in the Park' evening in Northport, 6 miles north of Omena. Traverse City is a 25 minute ride along the beautiful bay and 45 minutes to the Sleeping Bear Dunes. Driving in the Leelanau Pennisula is part of your vacation experience,you will actually enjoy it! Each curve along M22 allows you to capture breathtaking views of Grand Traverse Bay. Get lost on the country roads that wrap through wine country.


This “classic” cottage is situated directly on Omena Bay, with an enclosed enchanting Gazebo near the shore. Enjoy wonderful days filled with boating, sailing,swimming bicycling or hiking on the many back roads and dedicated trails. Experience breathtaking sunsets, as this cottage sits on a west facing Peninsula on the bay.

Within easy reach are the attractions that define the very best “up north” experience: Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore, charter fishing, casinos, excellent restaurants and bakeries (from pub fare to Zagut rated delights). There are historical and cultural amenities including Interlochen Center for the Arts, amazing natural and human history, including the new tribal museum at Peshabestown, and several historic light houses and museums. And there are bounteous farmers markets, 20 wineries and cideries in Leelanau county alone. 

You can walk to the quaint village of Omena and the Leelanau Cellars Winery and Tasting Room, gallery, general store, historical museum, post office, restaurant, and park with play equipment and wide sandy beach. The setting offers a sense of seclusion screened with trees and a vista onto protected conservancy woodlands and Omena Bay.


 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We enjoy traveling, sailing,biking,tennis, hiking, kayaking, walking our dogs,hanging out at the beach, restoring classic cars and wine-tasting.

Why the Owner Chose Northport, MI, USA:
Our classic cottage in Omena offered us a nostalgic “Up North” experience. We fell in love with the charming details and secluded location on the bay. The cottage sits on a west facing peninsula that offers breathtaking sunsets. The deep water bay allows us endless boating and sailing opportunities right in our own back yard.We love that we are part of a very quaint small town and yet when we want a reprise from the seclusion, we are so close to what Traverse City has to offer. Endless events, culinary delights, and a full service regional airport. We have the best of both worlds.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Spectacular Sunsets. Direct access to Sailing/Boating on Grand Traverse Bay.
