Large comfortable house on North Lake Street just up from Fishtown and across the road from Lake Michigan. The house is recently renovated and up to date. Updated kitchen with newer refrigerator, oven, microwave, and dishwasher. The house also has a new washer and dryer! Just a 2 minute walk to North Beach and 5 minute walk from Fishtown. You can enjoy a coffee on the front porch in the morning and hear the waves and the sounds from Lake Michigan. Relax and grill out in the spacious backyard. This house is ideal for a larger family or two families to share. Sleeps up to 12 comfortably. There are 3 bedrooms for adults and a great loft for the kids that sleeps 4. There is also a multi-purpose room with tv, sleeper sofa and bunk bed that can also sleep 4. It has two family rooms and fully stocked kitchen. There is also a table that seats 10. The great room off the kitchen has windows on all three sides and is filled with sunlight throughout the day. The front room has a great sectional sofa to spread out and read or just relax - crank the windows open and listen to the lake while you enjoy a good book! Right off the front room is an open spiral staircase that leads to an open loft with separate bathroom for the kids (not baby proofed). Also, feel free to use the kayaks (with life jackets) to explore Lake Michigan or Lake Leelanau. There are also four kids bikes (two 20 inch and two 24 inch) that are included for the little ones to get around town. In short, this is a great house on a great street in a great village!
Large pleasant house walkable to North Beach and all of Leland
About Heidi Johnson
We grew up in Michigan and Wisconsin and our family has been vacationing in Leland and the surrounding Leelanau County for decades. We currently live in Washington, DC, and have been looking for a place we could call our own in Leland for years. We have three children who are in their adventurous years and we look forward to all the memories they will be able to make up in Leland. And, since we benefited from renting places in Leland for years, we would like to share our house with others so that they can create their own magical memories of Leland and Leelanau County.
Heidi Johnson purchased this House in 2015
Why Heidi Johnson chose Leland
We love the street that this house is located on, with its large trees, green lawns and the proximity to North Beach and Lake Michigan. We also love the size of the house - its big enough to fit extended family and has a great backyard surrounded by trees on three sides. We also love being so close to Lake Michigan that you can hear the waves and smell the crisp air coming off the lake. The proximity to Fishtown, the Leland Harbor, the Dam Candy Store, the Village Cheese Shanty, the Cove, River & Main, the Bluebird, the Riverside Inn, the Leland Lodge and Neadows Bay on Lake Leelanau, means that most everything Leland has to offer is just a short walk away. And, once you have explored Leland, you are just a short car ride or bike ride away from Sleeping Bear Dunes, Northport, Suttons Bay, Glen Arbor, Empire and Cedar and all the other awesome spots in Leelanau County.

Clean, spacious, and comfortable
Enjoyed our stay. Close to Leland's shopping, harbor, beaches and restaurants. We left our car in the driveway and walked everywhere. The house accommodated our group of 9 with ease. Good weather was a bonus.
What a great place. The house was a great place to enjoy time together. the place was comfortable to have conversations in different parts of the house. Everyone had wonderful places to sleep. The cleanliness was very appreciated. if it had been a bit warmer the yard was beautiful especially with the fire pit and table . Nothing but positive to say
Incredible location, terrific home!
The house is beautifully done with 2 living areas, a modern upscale kitchen, three very comfortable bedrooms on the main floor and a loft for kids. Beds are worth a note: super comfortable - We all slept wonderfully! Tasteful, comfortable, and welcoming. Heidi was great to work with, took care of everything to ensure our stay was top-notch. Highly recommended!
This is a beautiful home with prime location. The house was spacious, clean, and very cozy. The backyard was large and partially surrounded by woods which made it perfect for quiet evening gatherings. It is within walking distance of downtown Leland and the public beach access. Myself, and a group of 5 ladies enjoyed a stay at this lovely home and spent our time relaxing on the beach, shopping, and dining out. I highly recommend this home for a vacation get away.
Leland was an amazing town and so many beautiful surrounding areas.
The house was perfect for our group of 8 ladies. It was spacious and clean. Beds were comfortable with nice bedding. Kitchen was fully equipped for our needs. We tended to gather in the room off the kitchen but there were multiple places to sit and read or chat. Very easy walk to Fishtown and the beach. Also close to Sutton's Bay, Sleepingbear dunes, etc. One of the bathrooms is in need of a remodel but it worked fine. Owner was very responsive and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend this rental!
Beautiful house with ample room in ideal location.
Our family spent a wonderful 4 days at this Leland vacation home. The property is ideally located on a quiet side street, about a 2 minute walk from an entrance to a secluded public beach, and maybe 5 minutes walking distance from "downtown" Leland proper. There's also a large yard in which our daughter loved to play after coming home from the beach.
The photos and description are all accurate, and the house was meticulously clean. It's also very spacious - we were there with 5 people and could have easily invited another 5 without it ever feeling crowded. The kitchen is large and functional, with modern appliances. The family room off the kitchen is the best part of the house, with windows on three sides, an enormous dining table, and a comfy sofa in front of a fireplace.
Communication with the owner was always prompt. A major rain storm knocked out power to most of Leland for about 24 hours while we there, causing the backup generator to come on. Heidi was really helpful and followed up with us after the situation had been resolved.
We would definitely come back!
