About the property

Shingle-sided Cottage On Lake Michigan. 5 Bedrooms, Sleeps 10.

Attention: We will begin taking reservations on Oct. 1 for the 2018 season. Priority is given to returning guests. Rates may increase slightly each year.

This rustic, shingle-sided cottage is one of the last of its kind in Leland. The beach is literally out the back door and Lake Michigan is a constant presence. Nearly all the rooms, including both the dining room and the deck where we take our meals, overlook it. No matter the weather, you'll hear the waves and sometimes the wind in the surrounding pines.

With five bedrooms — three in the main house and two in "the annex" just across the deck from the main house — as many as 10 adults can sleep comfortably; children can double up. There are two-and-a-half baths, with a clawfoot tub in the main house and a shower in the annex. There are canoes and bicycles for your use, as well as a Sunfish sailboat for experienced sailors, and we provide linen and towels, so there’s no need to bring those.

Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, located in Leelanau County, has been named Good Morning America's Most Beautiful Place in America. It boasts 64 miles of beaches along Lake Michigan, two islands, 26 inland lakes, more than 50,000 acres of land, and the monumental sand dunes from which it gets its name.

The village of Leland is filled with galleries and restaurants. Northern Michigan's commercial fishing heritage remains alive in Fishtown. Walk along the docks, amongst the weathered fishing shanties, smokehouses, racks of drying fishing nets, and fish tugs on the Leland River, and you can imagine what it would have been like in the early 1900s to live and work in this small fishing village, nestled along the shore of Lake Michigan. Fishtown still operates as one of the only working commercial fishing villages in the state of Michigan.

Our cottage is located in Indiana Woods, a short walk from Fishtown, and reached by a private road.
