Guestbook comments from the owner

This place is awesome! From the pool table to the little things like salt and pepper. Thank you for sharing your piece of heaven with us. It is so much better than a hotel. See you next year.

Best location to get to all the small towns up north. Very nicely furnished and super clean! Plenty of room and felt like we had a whole house! Jessie was very sweet to work with. Would have liked to stay a month!

Perfectly Perfect

  • 5 of 5

What a perfectly lovely carriage house in an amazing setting for a couples getaway. It was so well-appointed that we wanted for nothing. Having a garage to park our bike in was a huge bonus too! The carriage house is also located in the perfect spot for exploring and adventures in nearby towns or just to sit by the lake & take in the beauty of that itself. We would encourage others to make a point of visiting North Point, Suttons Bay, & Sleeping Bear Dunes . . . . all very beautiful & fun places to visit. Thanks to owners Larry & Jessie who are so welcoming & hospitable and just made our visit perfectly perfect. Now that we've discovered this little haven, we're hoping to make it a yearly destination.

Perfect location and accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We were attending a wedding at Crooked Creek Ranch on Lake Leelanau during Labor Day weekend and decided to expand our trip into a week-long vacation. The Peek-a-Boo is centrally located on the Leelanau Peninsula so it was easy to travel to Northport, Glen Arbor, Suttons Bay, Leland, Traverse City, and everywhere in between. The cottage is tastefully appointed and the owners are so gracious--they really went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed and were comfortable. Beautiful rental--I highly recommend it!

Fabulous place to vacation!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a beautiful view, spotless living space and warm and friendly hosts then this is the place to be! We spent the week exploring the area and enjoying the cottage. There are a ton of things to do including just sitting on the dock and enjoying the views. You will not find two nicer hosts anywhere and if we come back to the area this is where we will stay! Thank you for everything!

Exceeded my expectations!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay for a long weekend. The listing description was correct and the place was even better in person. The owners were easy going and were available when questions came up. The property was cute, clean and comfy! It was so enjoyable to make coffee in the morning and drink it down by the lake. We also enjoyed a glass of wine down by the lake and watched the sunset every night. The property is in a great location, close to all that Leelanau has to offer. It was so relaxing and nice. We will be back!
