About John Lesperance

John and Carol are married, no kids and have a dog and a cat. We have lived in Leelanau county since 1994 and reside in an old farm house from the 1860"s. We are born and raised Michiganders that returned to this area after living 11 years in San Diego. John is self employed and Carol is a therapist at a head injury clinic. We are basically ordinary working class people. We love the outdoors, the beach, cross country skiing, hiking and all the things that lead us to this beautiful place.

John Lesperance purchased this house in 2014

Why John Lesperance chose Northern Michigan

We chose Northport for our rental because the village is old style quaint yet "hip" as well. It reminds one of a New England coast town. It is at the tip of the Leelanau peninsula and is not overrun with tourists and has maintained it's character. We love the entire village as it has everything you may want or need. Being right in the village you can walk or ride bikes to everything. There is every outdoor thing you might want and the marina park is beautiful. People are friendly and it seems no one is ever in a hurry.

What makes this house unique

No hidden or extra cleaning fees. Home has large covered front porch for those rainy days that might occur. Within walking distance to beach and park. Great swimming beach for children as it is shallow for a long distance out.

Great place to stay in Northport, MI

  • 5 of 5

The four of us enjoyed our stay at your rental home in Northport. We loved having the four bedrooms which fit our group nicely. The home was well furnished and very comfortable. The location was great. We were able to travel all around the Leelanau Peninsula easily. We would recommend this home for rental to others that might be interested. Staying in the small town of Northport was the best. Thank you John and Carol for a great vacation in the north country of Michigan.

Very Nice House

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this home was very satisfactory. The house was beautiful and had all of our needs covered. Enjoyed a nice barbecue with the gas grill. Walked to town, just a few blocks, and enjoyed the people, shops and convenient grocery store. We would highly recommend this rental.

Fantastic Place!

  • 5 of 5

The home is practically perfect! Comfortable all new appliances and wifi and yet feels relaxed and comfortable. Great location to walk into town for coffee in morning, beach midday and dinner at night. This was our second visit and could not be happier:)

Amazing home!

  • 5 of 5

We travelled down to Northport to get married and I don't think we could have picked a better house to stay in. The space was gorgeous and clean and they had everything you could need inside. I was in awe as I stepped through the front door and was so excited to spend our weekend in this home. We were able to fit 3 families in the house and it was so great for us to all be together rather than in separate hotel rooms. The distance to downtown was so reasonable that we walked there every morning. I honestly don't think there's a bad thing I could say about this house. Thank you so much for letting us enjoy it, we loved it!!
