Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: Our children grew up loving this cottage during the summers and we often enjoyed Thanksgivings with extended family and friends here too. We're beach lovers and so the easy access to the beach and lake was a must. We've come to appreciate all that Leelanau County has to offer-nature; cherry and apple orchards; sunsets; wine country; gourmet eating; hiking; kayaking; and a wonderful quality of life.

Why the Owner Chose Northport, MI, USA:
We rented the cottage for a number of years with good friends and found ourselves introducing more and more people to the area. Eventually we purchased the cottage and added an addition and a new kitchen. We are pleased to be members of the Leelanau Conservancy and love their adage to 'save a little bit of Leelanau.' This cottage is a a very special place to us.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
You catch your first amazing glimpse of stunning Lake Michigan as you drive down the hill; you walk to the front door and see nothing but blue green shining lake waters as you look through the foyer; you enter the kitchen with its wall of windows looking out onto the lake and beach; and you continue on the screened in porch facing the water and say this is just amazing! This is one of the few homes built on the dune.
