About the Property
Cottage, 4 Bedrooms + 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)
Unplug and kick back for a summer vacation retreat like no other. Right outside the lakeside porch door is your own private sandy beach that is ideal for swimming, beachside strolls, petoskey hunting, and evening fires. If you like to get out onto the water, Cedar Cove is a paradise for sailing, kayaking, canoeing, stand-up paddle boarding, wind surfing, water skiing, and fishing. The clear, azure fresh water of Lake Michigan reminds many people of the Caribbean.
Cedar Cove can sleep up to 10 with three bedrooms overlooking the bay, and two sofa beds - one in the downstairs den, and another in the living room next to the beautiful stone fireplace. The full bath upstairs and half bath downstairs are complemented by the outdoor shower with the view of the bay – the perfect stop to warm yourself after a swim.
A fully equipped kitchen with stove, oven, microwave and coffee maker connects to a beautiful dining room with seating for 12 to accommodate the crowd. You may find yourself taking breakfast or lunch in the adjacent large screened porch with its picnic table or simply relaxing and enjoying the view from Adirondack chairs or the nearby hammock.
Cedar Cove has a kid-friendly, sandy-bottom beach with a permanent wide dock perfect for sunbathing or reading in chairs. The dock is protected by a picturesque peninsula which is a great place to sit and watch the water. There’s deep-water mooring, a fire pit, patio table and chairs, reclining beach chairs – and just enough shade for those who prefer (or need) to escape the heat! A canoe, and two kayaks allow you to explore the bay – try it at twilight as the sun sets over Paradesia Point to the west!
THE LEELANAU PENINSULA AND NORTHPORT
Our cottage is located near the tip of the idyllic Leelanau Peninsula - a place known for wonderful hiking, breathtaking scenery, spectacular cycling and a surprising variety of places to eat, shop, drink and entertain in the nearby picture perfect towns. Northport, Leland, and Suttons Bay each have their own unique character: including shops, galleries, restaurants, waterfront, and marina.
Cedar Cove is located just a couple of miles north of the Village of Northport off M22 and about an hour’s scenic drive to the spectacular Sleeping Bear Dunes - the “Most Beautiful Place in America." There are wineries throughout the Peninsula and the area is the largest cherry growing region in the world. Try picking up a quart of those sweet black cherries at a roadside stand and see if you can get it all the way home! Be sure to visit farmer’s markets in Northport, Leland and Sutton’s Bay to sample a variety of local foods and artisanal flavors. You might even spot foodie star Mario Batali who spends his entire summer here. Make time for a hike and swim on the dunes stretching down to Lake Michigan at nearby Leelanau State Park – or tour and picnic at the historic lighthouse at the tip of the Peninsula. Interested in catching a movie? Check what’s playing at the Bay Theatre in Suttons – perhaps after trying your hand at bowling at Tucker’s in downtown Northport.
RELAXING AT CEDAR COVE
With all that can be appreciated nearby,we often find all we need right at Cedar Cove – enjoying the lap of the waves on the shore, the clouds and breeze while sitting at the end of the dock, the refreshing swim, the long day of reading books and quiet conversation – the handmade quilts on each upstairs bed make for wonderful nights of restful and recuperative vacation slumber.
We welcome well-behaved pets, but do not permit the use of jet skis, out of respect for neighbors and the quiet relaxation that Cedar Cove will bring to you and your family.
Thanks for considering Cedar Cove for your summer vacation. We love this place and are sure that you will too.
