About the property

Newly Remodeled South Lake Leelanau Lakefront Home

Our goal is simple. We want you and your family to make this newly remodeled lakefront home your regular weekly rental home for your Northern Michigan vacations. My family just purchased this home in October 2015 and started an extensive remodeling phase that was completed in February 2016. You will have plenty of fun at this beautiful 4 bedroom, 3 full bath home located on South Lake Leelanau.

This property offers a huge backyard, sand bottom lakefront, a basketball hoop, and ample parking. The interior of the home features a remodeled open floor design with a huge chef's table that offers gorgeous views of the lake. I just replaced all of the windows throughout out the house and added a new central air condition for comfort. Also included in this remodeling are new hardwood flooring throughout the main level of the home and a new full bath in the lower level. There is a great dining area on the outside upper deck of the home that should be used to take advantage of having laughs during a meal while watching the sunset over the lake. The Kitchen flows into the large Living Room area that is equipped with a big flat screen HDTV with DirectTV.

The Master Bedroom overlooks the lake and has its own full bathroom. The other two bedrooms on the main floor offers a queen bed in one, and two sets of bunk beds in the other bedroom (not pictured, will be complete after the remodel) with a full bathroom across the hall. The lower bedroom offers two twin beds and a new full bathroom. Sheets and towels are included in the rental.

Lake Leelanau is recognized nationally for being an excellent fishing lake. Fishing off the dock has been known to net its share of Walleye, Perch, and Bass Fish. It is also an all sports lake, that you can rent a Pontoon or Water Ski Boat and have it delivered to your dock for your convenience. Lake Leelanau travels for miles from Leland to Traverse City and offers restaurants and bars that you can dock your boat and dine.

The town of Lake Leelanau, which is only 2 miles down the road, has a grocery store, coffee and breakfast shops, a vast number of wineries, and a distillery that is known for their Gin, Vodka, and Whiskey. The town of Leland is about 7 minutes away. Leland is where the Historic Fishtown is located with its many restaurants and shops, and Fishing Charters that will take you and your group out on Lake Michigan for Lake Trout or Salmon fishing trips. The city of Suttons Bay is also a short 9 minute drive that offers its own flare of restaurants and shops, along with a movie theater. If a trip to the Sleeping Bear Dunes is something you would like to do, it is located less than 30 minutes away. So many things to see and do in the heart of Leelanau County, and THIS house sits perfectly centered on South Lake Leelanau ready for you to enjoy and relax.

About Bill Fundaro

My wife and I are life-long Michigan residents. We hail from the Detroit Metro area and have longed for an "Up-North" property that our young family could enjoy for years to come. We, like many "City Folks", have taken summer vacations all throughout Northern Michigan escaping the hustle and bustle of the city life for a week at a time. Once we visited Leelanau County, and more specific, Lake Leelanau, we knew that this was different from the rest. My wife and I are extremely happy that we bought this home in October 2015. We have stayed in this home for our weekly rentals for the past four years and loved everything about the house and the location it is from the nearby towns and amenities.

Something that never gets old to me is when leaving the city to head to this home and finally pulling up in this lakefront home's driveway is the very first smell of clean, fresh air when you open your car door. That is when you know that you are in for a very special week away. I hope that you will feel this same sensation when you book this property for your weekly vacation. Please feel free to contact me with any questions about this home for your vacation.

Bill Fundaro purchased this house in 2015

Why Bill Fundaro chose Lake Leelanau

After staying in this area for the past two summers, I had the unique opportunity to purchase this house in October 2015. I am invested a considerable amount of money back into the home to remodel this property. I opened up the floor plan to enhance the family gathering spots of this home and have added central air for comfort. In addition, to replacing all of the windows and adding hardwood floors to the main level of the house, I have also added a new full bathroom in the downstairs to make this house a 3 full bathroom home for your convenience. With a new fire pit in the massive back yard, you, your family, and guest will feel like you are staying at a 5 star resort. My goal is that you make this home your regualr rental spot year after year.

What makes this house unique

This newly remodeled home is complete with a new open floor plan, hardwood floors, added new full bathroom on lower (lakefront) level, and new windows. Perfectly located on South Lake Leelanau your family will enjoy all of the fun water activities in the sand bottom, clear waterfront, directly located in the backyard of the property. You are minutes away from Historic Fishtown in Leland, and the shopping and restaurants of Suttons Bay.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for a family vacation. The home was very clean and maintained very

well. There was plenty of yard space and a great swing set for my grandson. It also had a good

spot for campfires at night right by the lake. We all loved the big open kitchen. It was a great week with with the whole family .

Great Vaca!

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time we stayed at this home. Had a great time. Wide open living space for the two families we had. Many updates and decorated beautifully. The home was clean and very well maintained. Big open yard for lounging in the sun or yard games. It was easy to secure our boat at the dock.

We had a small issue with the indoor internet, but the owner was very attentive and talked us through correcting the problem. It was easy to connect to the internet whether we were inside or outside in the yard.

Its an easy drive to nearby towns-Leland, Northport, Glen Arbor.

Would definitely stay there again!

Great location, clean home, friendly/helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

Home was clean and ready right when we arrived. Plenty of space for our 2 families. Kitchen, eating area, family and family room all open together, great for gathering/meals. Nice big lawn for relaxing, water is shallow enough to walk right in from the grass and has sandy bottom. Quick drive to Lake Leelenau (the town), Leland, or Suttons Bay.

Bill was very helpful before our rental week, making sure we knew what was included. Also texted to check in on the second day, make sure we had everything we needed. Plenty of parking, nice fire pit, dock was great for our boat all week. Quick boat ride north to tie up in Lake Leelenau for lunch or dinner.

All in all, a great place to spend a week up north!

Great Experience

  • 4 of 5

We arrived a little early and the home was already to go. The home was very clean and ready for us, which was super. The home was well equipped in the kitchen and the kitchen was very large, lots of natural light, much better then other places we have stayed in the past. Nice deck over looking the lake, lower level deck had a dual grill with gas or charcoal options, lots of seating for a large group, nice dock for boats and toys and close to many eateries. This was a great home for families.

Beautiful Home - Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for sharing your home with us. We had two families of 5 each stay comfortably. The teens loved the private kids space downstairs. Th new kitchen was perfect, we could all fit around the island. The location on South Lake Leelanu was excellent. We could easily boat to the town of Leland, through the narrows and into Lake Leelanu (North lake). Having a dock to tie up our rented pontoon boat was great as well. We were slightly worried about the slope of the yard as one in our group has trouble walking. and with stairs. She was able to maneuver around the wide open living area with her walker on the new floors and with help get down to the dock. We could drop her off near the front door for easy access to the house or drive her to the parking area for boating. Finally, Bill was great to work with, even checking in that all was well. We will be back to this great home.
