Clean and cute.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is a great central location. You are no more than 20 minutes from any place on the peninsula. This is our third stay and we will most assuredly stay a fourth.

A very nice little spot.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was clean and the staff was very accommodating. We were there for a wedding so we didn't get much time to use the amenities but it would definitely be a place we would visit again.

Pure Michigan, great place.

  • 5 of 5

Adam, Ben and Barb are the best. The cottages at the Narrows are great, centrally located, clean and an easy walk to Dick's Poor House, Leelanau Pie, Northern Lights Distillery, and Coffee Shops. They made our stay as enjoyable as ever, and I've been coming up here since I was a kid. I almost don't want to write how great they are to keep the place of the radar.

Hillary and his staff are helpful, informative, kind and accessible if you need assistance during your stay. Thank you, Hillary for all of your hard work and the love you have put into your lovely rental properties.

We loved this place, can't wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Narrows Cottage while visiting northern Michigan for a wedding. The cottage was cute, clean and conveniently located near things to do/eat/drink/etc. Our favorite perk was taking out the kayaks and SUP boards onto Lake Leelanau each day! Everyone we met at the Narrows Yacht Club was very friendly and we will definitely stay here again if we find ourselves up north. Would highly recommend this place!
