About John Lesperance

John and Carol are married, no kids and have a LLewellyn Setter named Roxie. 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 Northport

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

Pet allowed upon approval (one dog only). 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 house!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my fiancée for our wedding at Trinity and reception at Willowbrook Mill. There was plenty of room to get dressed and take pictures. We walked to The Mitten and several restaurants each night. The location was so great we even walked home from Willowbrook after the reception.

The house was very clean with everything we needed. We also loved having coffee on the porch in the morning and we used the bikes that come with the property once.

Highly recommend it!

Enjoyable Northport stay

  • 5 of 5

The owners of this property were always quick to provide complete answers to my questions. The house was clean, organized and had all the supplies we needed (including bicycles). Our family had a wonderful time in Northport and having a house near both downtown Northport and the bay made it convenient to participate in multiple activities.
