Breathe. Relax. You are now Up North.
Enjoy the beauty of the Leelanau Peninsula all four seasons with stunning views over Lake Michigan. In summer, travel by bike through lush cherry orchards and vineyards; walk the beach, swim and fish. In winter, cross-country ski and enjoy family time by the fire as you enjoy the early sunset over the lake.
Our home sits on a bluff above Lake Michigan, with stairs leading to a sandy beach. Its wooded lot provides plenty of privacy. The property is also within short walking distance to shared frontage on North Lake Leelanau.
An airy 5BR/4BA retreat, our home can easily accommodate a family or a group. It features three fireplaces, maple wood floors, large bay windows, a back deck overlooking the lake, and finishes and furniture featuring local craftsmen. The kitchen has granite counter tops, custom cherry cabinets, and a gas range. The master suite contains its own fireplace, library and a lake view. Lovely details include ash beams and paneling, and several skylights. The rooms provide some quiet spaces for those wishing to read or for business needs.
In addition to the main house, the property has a large detached garage.
We hope that you and your family enjoy all that northern Michigan has to offer. It is truly a special place! In an effort to give back to this wonderful community, yearly, we plan to donate 5% of all rental dollars to help support its farmlands and dunes, and Michigan families with medical and mental health issues. Your choice in renting this home will provide monetary support to the Leelanau Conservancy, and to high risk children and families served by the University of Michigan in outreach programs throughout the state. Thank you for selecting this home to both provide you with a wonderful vacation and to bring back to the communities of northern Michigan.

Year Purchased: 2014
About: We have been coming up north since my grandparents bought a home on a small lake near here 70 years ago. Some of my own fondest memories are of watching the stars, taking walks, kayaking the Crystal River, swimming, finding Petosky stones, skiing, eating ice cream and hiking the dunes. I hope that you and your family enjoy all that northern Michigan has to offer. As a University of Michigan faculty member, active in children's health, I am also deeply committed to raising healthy and resilient children and supporting families. I bring this passion to both my work and my leisure. I know how precious vacation time is with your family and friends. Savor the moment, these are truly some of life’s most special memories. Take pictures, take a walk, take moment to enjoy the breathtaking view from the deck and to just 'be” with your family and friends.
