Our Lake Michigan cottage is located on beautiful Cathead Bay, 8 miles north of historic Northport, MI and just south of the Grand Traverse Lighthouse on the Leelanau peninsula. Situated on a white, sugar sand beach that is studded with Petoskey stones with breathtaking views, it is the ideal place to spend your vacation. The Bay is perfect for swimming as the lake bottom is sandy and the bay is shallow. Or bring your kayak and paddle board for a relaxing cruise. For those windy days, bring your Catamaran and go for a sail or go bodyboarding for a more exhilarating adventure. Opportunities abound for those who like to hike as the beach is surrounded to the north, east, and south by state parks with hiking trails. Nearby, the towns of Northport, Leland, Omena, and Sutton’s Bay offer art galleries, museums, shopping and charming restaurants.
The cottage offers four bedrooms, each with a large closet, dresser, bed(s), pillows, blanket and comforter. There is a full bathroom on both floors. The main floor has an open concept kitchen, dining area, and living room with incredible views of Lake Michigan. There is a wood-burning fireplace for those occasional chilly evenings. On the lower level, there is a second family room that is perfect for playing games, putting together puzzles or watching a movie on the 42-inch flat screen TV with a Blu-ray/DVD player. We have provided an assortment of games, puzzles, books and movies that will appeal to all ages. The lower level family room also has a pull out sofa that sleeps 2.
Outdoors, we offer a deck with dining table, a charcoal grill, a picnic table, lawn chairs, a fire pit with rustic seating, and picture perfect sunsets.

Why the Owner Chose Northport, MI, USA:
We have vacationed at this property for more than 10 years and were thrilled when we had the opportunity to purchase it. Some of the returning renters have rented this cottage for 25 years. It is a special place that creates wonderful memories. We couldn't help but fall in love with it after our first visit.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This cottage is situated on Lake Michigan, the views are amazing, the beach is private. The water stays shallow for quite a ways, which makes it nice for small children. Some days the Lake is incredibly calm which makes for great fun playing catch or tag in the water. Other days, there are waves which are so fun to jump in. Just a short walk from the cottage's beach is a state beach that often has Petosky stones scattered on its shores. This is the perfect place to enjoy time with family and friends.
