Property description

Enjoy the breathtaking Lake Michigan sunsets from this classic Lake Michigan waterfront home nestled in a secluded area of Good Harbor Bay, just two miles south of the Village of Leland. Comfort, convenience and charm describe this three-bedroom, three full bath cedar shake beach cottage with 100 feet of Lake Michigan frontage. Sun, surf, sand, water sports and stunning views of Good Harbor Bay, Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore, Pyramid Point and the Manitou Islands await you, your family and guests.

A nicely appointed Great Room, complete with a Michigan stone fireplace, adjoins the open kitchen and dining area, perfect for entertaining and relaxing. The enclosed porch overlooking the Lake is the perfect spot for that morning cup of coffee, a relaxing lunch or sunset dining. The porch also features two daybeds and a third trundle for those unexpected guests or grandchildren. Guests may relax on the landscaped yard, the sandy beach or the deck accessible from both the Great Room and the master bedroom. The master bedroom contains a queen sized bed as does the second bedroom, while the third bedroom features twin beds and a connected full bath complete with laundry facilities and a door leading to an outside shower.

The Leelanau Peninsula has received many accolades including "Best Summer Trip", "Best Sunsets", "Best Inland Lake (Lake Leelanau)", "Most Beautiful Site in the U.S. (Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore)", "Top Ten Places to Enjoy Local Wines", "Top Five Foodie Towns in America (Traverse City)" and others you can discover on a variety of day trips throughout the area. Summers in Leelanau County are wonderful but don't forget September and October when the air is crisp, the Lake pristine and the fall colors breathtaking.

Area attractions include "Historic Fishtown", home of the fifth generation Carlson Fishery, famous for whitefish, both freshly caught and smoked. The area also features great restaurants, not only in Leland but in Suttons Bay and nearby towns like Glen Arbor, Omena and Northport. Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore offers a myriad of hiking trails, climbing on the impressive sand dunes high above Lake Michigan and the Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive. And your trip would not be complete without a cruise on Lake Michigan aboard the Mishe Mokwa either to South Manitou Island or the delightful "Sunset Cruise" through Good Harbor Bay. It's all here for you to enjoy!
