Clean and cute.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is a great central location. You are no more than 20 minutes from any place on the peninsula. This is our third stay and we will most assuredly stay a fourth.

A very nice little spot.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was clean and the staff was very accommodating. We were there for a wedding so we didn't get much time to use the amenities but it would definitely be a place we would visit again.

Pure Michigan, great place.

  • 5 of 5

Adam, Ben and Barb are the best. The cottages at the Narrows are great, centrally located, clean and an easy walk to Dick's Poor House, Leelanau Pie, Northern Lights Distillery, and Coffee Shops. They made our stay as enjoyable as ever, and I've been coming up here since I was a kid. I almost don't want to write how great they are to keep the place of the radar.
