The cottage sits 150 feet above Lake Michigan with views of the Manitou and Fox Islands. 700 feet of frontage and very few neighbors afford an unusual degree of privacy and solitude. A winding path down to the lake leads to miles of shoreline perfect for petoskey stone and agate hunting, swimming, kayaking, and relaxation.
The cottage has a wide covered deck that is the perfect spot to lounge: read, eat, watch a breathtaking sunset or storm clouds fly in from the west, star gaze or dream. There is an eagle's nest nearby and regular flybys. Track and identify freighters sailing through the Manitou Passage by phone app!
There is a second patio under the porch with comfy lounge chairs for a quiet respite.
You are close to everything that is Leelanau County: wineries, restaurants, beaches, the Sleeping Bear Dunes, golf, hiking, and the best road biking in the midwest..... but you may never want to leave this spot. It is perfect for those who want to get away from it all.
From June 1 to Sept 1, the rental is for a week from Sunday to Sunday. For the rest of the time, there is a 3 day minimum. The rates vary depending on the season.
