About the Property

Sunset View Of North Lake Leelanau; lots of sleeping room.

This remodeled charming cottage has all that you need to enjoy the fantastic North Lake Leelanau with your family. All told, there is a bedroom with a twin bunk bed, a second with a queen bed, a bedroom with a double bed, and the two sleeping lofts (one with a double/twin bed bunk and a twin bunk bed, the other with a queen, a single twin, and a crib) -- that is up to 14 people and an infant/toddler! We have a large dining room with an ample table to accommodate a large family gathering and a good sized deck and front yard with a wonderful view of the lake.

The kitchen includes a refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, a new KitchenAid gas stove/convection oven, coffee maker, toaster, and blender. We have table service for 16 people included in the dishes. We have our large gas grill ready for use as well.

There are two baths, one with a shower. There is an excellent cedar outdoor shower that is very invigorating and spacious and also private. We also have a new front-loading stackable washing machine and dryer that include steam features.

The backyard is large and has room for several vehicles to park. A dock and a buoy is available for use with the rental if desired to dock your own boat or a rental (both a launch and rentals are available near by).

The village of Lake Leelanau is a short drive by boat or car from the house, and the wonders of Leelanau County are available. Have a home base to check out historic Fish Town in Leland or the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Dining and shopping options in Suttons Bay and Traverse City are small driving distances from the house. If you're into the wine scene, we have a great central location for all of the vineyards in the area.

There are several trails and natural areas to enjoy in Leelanau County with bikes or hiking.

All in all, we have a great location within the County to enjoy on its own or to jump off to other adventures. We hope to host you!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We both grew up in the Traverse City/Leelanau County area. We love it here and work here during the school year but work at an arts camp for several weeks during the summer.

Why the Owner Chose Lake Leelanau, MI, USA (City):
We bought this house because we wanted to enjoy the terrific communities of Leelanau County and live on one of the best lakes in the world. We are raising our kids here; we have traveled all over the world but chose to settle here, where our families and our favorite places are. We love that we have the opportunity to raise our family in an area with so much natural beauty and great community.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The lake property and the views that go with it made us fall in love. Our kids immediately responded to the water and the fun they can have at the house. The views are fantastic, the neighborhood is quiet and welcoming.
