About the Property

4 Bedroom, 2 1/2 Bath On Northport Bay, A/C, Sleeps 8

Incredible beauty and fun-filled days await you. Stunning home completely renovated to create a wonderful, relaxing vacation experience on Lake Michigan in Northport. Our home is impeccably maintained. The home’s interior has all new furnishings, top quality beds and bedding, updated appliances, new bathrooms, flooring, and laundry room. We had you in mind when we rebuilt the home. The home is fully equipped with amenities for your comfort and enjoyment.

Bring your flip-flops and enjoy the sand between your toes while sitting in the chairs on the beach while sipping a glass of wine. Bring sand toys to play on elevated beach section. Lots of skipping stones on the beach as well. We provide two kayaks so that you can enjoy the water. Or just take a long walk along Lake Michigan’s beach and find a Petoskey Stone.

A dining set that seats 5 people with an umbrella near the grill is great for outdoor eating. Eight Conversation chairs with small tables are on the deck, which expands the length of the home so that you can experience sunrises each day. After your relaxing day, please take a moment to stargaze. The stars are completely amazing at night.

There is a shed available for you to store your outdoor toys. There is also an outdoor shower to rinse off the sand after your day in the sun.

Enter through the door to a beautiful view of Lake Michigan through a wall of clear glass. Upon entering you will see a lovely stone fireplace with a cozy living area, TV, kitchen area with all stainless steel appliances and dining table. To your right, there is a place to hang your jacket and a half-bath.

After enjoying the breathtaking water views, walk through the hallway to see a full-length mirror reflecting the lake. You can stop to grab a beach towel and a glass of wine in the nook before you decide which bedroom will be yours for your stay. The interior designers designed each bedroom for your comfort. Every bedroom sleeps two people, has hooks for your swimsuit and towel, and has mesh drawers and closets with hangers for you to unpack. A tabletop with a mirror provides a place for your toiletries. Lake views from almost every room.

To continue the enjoyment of the blue lake, the bathrooms have been decorated in all beach glass colors. Enjoy a warm bath in the tub or nice shower after a fun-filled day of outdoor activities.

Once the sun sets, go to the lower level of the home to play a game or watch TV. The lower level is equipped with a kid play area, a table and chairs for adults, conversation seating, a TV, and a DVD player. The get-away fourth bedroom is also located in the lower level along with the second full bathroom and laundry room. Again, you will not be disappointed with the views. You can see the lake from the wall of windows.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: My husband and I have been married for 19 years. We have three amazing kids and all of us love to travel. We live in Ann Arbor, but love to go “Up North” during the summer. We love the carefree days, roaming the beach, frolicking in the bay, hiking on the trails, playing in the water, and then enjoying the beach with a glass of wine. We have been coming to Northport every year since 1997. In the early years it was just the two of us with our books and bikes. Now we visit with our three kids. We have been fortunate to travel to most of the US and abroad. However Northport remains one of our favorite places to travel. We are excited to share our home with you so that this can become one of your favorite places as well.

Why the Owner Chose Northport, MI, USA:
Our mom and dad moved to Northport in 1997 after they retired. All of the siblings and spouses and grandkids visit each year. With growing families, we decided to get a place of our own, but wanted to be close enough that we could still enjoy the family time together. This home is just a short distance from family. Our kids can walk to Grandmas.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the sand on the beach and the ability to see a sunrise from the deck. It is close enough to everything, but far enough to relax. The stars at night are breathtaking. The home itself has a view of Lake Michigan from almost every place in the entire house. We love the long walks, hiking trails, tennis courts, playground, basketball court, kayaks, and star gazing that are all accessible without driving in a car to enjoy.
