Great set up for family vacation

This was our first time renting a cottage and we enjoyed it. Owner was great about answering all of my questions through the booking process. We felt very comfortable staying there. It is in good shape but lived in so we did not have to worry about the kids breaking something. Very kid friendly, tons of toys there for them to play with. Really enjoyed having a place with a fenced in yard and the fire pit. Liked that it was stocked with just about everything we needed except for food and drink. It is in a decent but not upscale neighborhood. I felt comfortable with my wife going out for a run in the mornings. Only thing that would have made it better is if it had air conditioning, which I knew that before we booked it and was really shaded so it was not bad. I just like my a/c. Overall a great experience, and for the price you cannot go wrong.

Wonderful winter getaway

I stayed here with my husband and our dog for 3 nights in between Christmas and December and had a fabulous time! The house was very cute and there was everything we needed to cook and feel at home. The fenced yard was a plus and our dog loved it! Close to some great wineries and also walkable to the little town of lake leelanau. Perfect house for a couple or small family. We will be back for sure!

Great Family Vacation Home Base!

The house is situated on a quiet street in the town of Lake Leelanau and provided a very central location to MANY fun was a short drive to Lake Michigan beaches and the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes, just minutes from lake access to Lake Leelanau and not very far from Traverse City, which had even more things to do. We stayed here in early August with our family of 2 younger children aged 4 and 6, myself and my husband. The house is cute, clean and had more than enough space for our family; could have easily fit another couple of people comfortably. The yard is very large and fenced in, very nice for the kids to play in. There is also a small park right across the street that the kids enjoyed. There is cable television and the TV was a nice bigger size. There is also WiFi so we could keep up with emails and stay connected, if we chose. There are toys and a few games and books at the house for most ages and for boys and girls; very much appreciated! There is also nice little grocery store about a block and a half away, in fact most of the "downtown" area/stores are within walking distance. Dave, the owner was very nice and easy to work with too. We definitely want to go back next year!

Cozy and cute

This sweet cottage made the perfect "home base" for my family as we explored the Leelanau Peninsula. The decor is charming, with a shabby chic/vintage flair. You will feel like you are staying at a friend's home, not a rental property. The bathroom is newly renovated and very appealing and roomy. There are plenty of fun board games for all ages, and a nice selection of DVDs. The kitchen is well-equipped, so you won't need to pack anything beyond your favorite foods. Everything is very clean and in good working condition. The yard is full of pretty blooms, and quite large, with a nice fire pit and seating area, and there is small deck outside the master bedroom. The cottage is within easy driving distance of so many great little communities (Sutton's Bay, Leland, Cedar, Northport) and, of course, Traverse City. We took daily walks into the village of Lake Leelanau for groceries, coffee, pastries, lunch and antique browsing. The grocery store is just five minutes away and carries pretty much everything you need (including fresh produce, baked goods and a small meat counter), plus an amazing (and surprising) selection of homemade Indian food. We went to the town's farmer's market (Saturdays) and bought some fruit, homemade soap, and jewelry from some local vendors. There are lots of great beaches nearby, in addition to shopping, dining, wineries, dunes, historic attractions, farm stands, museums and so much much more. We rented a pontoon one day and explored Lake Leelanau. Everyone in the community was very friendly, and we never felt like tourists. The owners were very helpful and responded promptly to all questions. It is clear that this is not just a rental property for them, but a labor of love.
