About the Property

4 bedroom 1.5 bath lakefront cottage next to Sleeping Bear Dunes Nat'l Lakeshore

Welcome to The Yellow House at Little Traverse! This immaculate family cottage boasts a well-appointed kitchen with ample dine-in seating, a sunny master bedroom and three additional bedrooms, and a comfortable living area with lake views. The outdoor space is perfect for your family vacation, with a sizable waterfront lawn for outdoor games, sunbathing, and sunset viewing, a spacious deck for family dinners or cocktail hours, and a fire pit for evening marshmallow roasts.

During your stay at The Yellow House, you'll enjoy 67 feet of frontage on serene Little Traverse Lake. A sandy beach, shallow waterfront, and wood dock make for an ideal swimming spot. The rowboat and four kayaks on site enable exploration of the lake's clear waters and picturesque surroundings. Additional amenities include a gas grill, plentiful seating for outdoor dining, a bocce ball set, family board games, and Adirondack chairs for lakeside lounging.

The Yellow House is conveniently within walking distance of Market 22, a local gem offering pastries, sandwiches, pizza, and sundries. Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is just across the lake, with a short, scenic walking path to Lake Michigan's Good Harbor Bay. The Yellow House is also a short drive to the charming towns of Glen Arbor, Leland, and Suttons Bay. This cottage is a wonderful spot from which to explore all that Leelanau County has to offer, including golfing at several area courses, hiking, biking, or cross-country skiing on nearby trails, wine tasting at local wineries, skiing at Crystal Mountain, climbing Sleeping Bear Dunes, dining and shopping in neighboring towns, and much more!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We have been vacationing in Leelanau County with our six children for over 20 years. After renting cottages in several different locations around the county, we discovered our perfect spot, Little Traverse Lake, 17 years ago. The calm and crowd-free water (shh! that's a secret!) enticed our watersport-loving family, and we've been hooked ever since. In addition to spending time on the lake, we love to bike and cross-country ski the nearby trails, hike the dunes, explore local restaurants and festivals, and take in the gorgeous sunsets. In the summer of 2006, we were fortunate to find a place of our own, The Yellow House. Here our family has enjoyed birthdays, holidays, family reunions, engagements, anniversaries, and much more, as each season brings new adventures on Little Traverse Lake.
