About Campbell McLeod

Born and raised in Michigan then moved west to Montana then California. I had spent many summers enjoying sailing and swimming in the Great Lakes as a youngster and later brought my famliy back to share the beauty and special experience of Lake Michigan.

I bought a 31 ft Cape Dory sailboat in Chicago about 6 years ago and sailed along the Lake Michigan coast. It was on one of those cruises I discovered the Village of Northport. I found the area so ideal for summer vacations I bought this home. I have redecorated the home to create a sunny and comfortable cottage for large gatherings, like the vacation home we sought when we rented.

Campbell McLeod purchased this house in 2013

Why Campbell McLeod chose Northwest

The two acre property has a large grassy lawn for events and games. It is within walking distance to restaurants, bakery, micro brewery, the marina and beaches. Tennis and golf are within the Village limits. This is an ideal house for wedding guests and family reunions.

What makes this house unique

Evenings can be spent enjoying the old stone fireplace in the backyard. Each bedroom has a bathroom.

There is ample off street parking.

There are several magnificent trees on the property including Copper Beech and English Oaks .

Spacious, Lovely, Historic Northport Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 adults and 4 children (ages 2 to 11) spent a week in July at this lovely, historic home in Northport, located about 2 blocks from Northport's town center and 5 blocks from its public beach. In particular we loved that each room was spacious and had its own ensuite bathroom; the enormous walled-in yard with outdoor fireplace; and the highly functional and charming kitchen. The yard was perfect for our little ones to play and run around safely. The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful, and we found that it was close enough to town and to the beach to be able to walk or drive quickly anywhere we wanted to go. The owner, Campbell, was friendly and very easy to work with, and very responsive during our stay. The house did not have a TV when we stayed there, though does have wi-fi installed throughout. We loved it and hope to stay there again next year!

Beautiful ex B&B in Northport.

  • 5 of 5

We recently hosted a small family gathering with people traveling in from California and DC. The house met our needs and provided a perfect place for all to gather and catchup. Inside, each room had its own restroom, and the common areas were up-to-date and comfortable while blending in historical atifacts relating to the house and town. Campbell was instantly approachable and has clearly taken great care of creating a rental home. There is a stereo hifi, and WIFI, but no TV on premises. The kitchen and appliances worked well and we did not want for any cooking related tool. The outside grounds were great. Our pack of kids were free to run around the 2-acre lot, and we set up a badminton net for the duration. The outdoor fireplace is a nice touch both for smores as well as adults' nightcap time after kids went to bed. Overall, the house was excellent, and only two short blocks to the heart of Norhtport (which is only two blocks wide by the way). The local beach and marina feature a large picnic, and playground area which we hit every night after ice cream at the Tribune --yum! There is plenty of parking, and we were able to easily explore the town as well as drive to nearby tourist sites and preserves. We even hosted a gathering of almost 30 people on the last day. If you are up for a comfortable home with beautiful landscaping, in a quiet lakeshore town, then this place is a peach. (Or as the locals may say a "cherry").
