110' OF PRIVATE FRONTAGE ON BEAUTIFUL LAKE LEELANAU

Lake Leelanau Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

McNeil Cottage is a two bedroom, live-in, furnished cottage (except sheets and towels) that sleeps four to six comfortably. Nestled in a cove, insulated from most water traffic it is great for water play, swimming, snorkeling, fishing, boating, water skiing or building sand castles on its modest beach area. The lake side of the cottage has large windows for unobstructed views of the lake (including spectacular sunsets) with a large wrap-around deck for lounging enjoyment.

The lake is clean with sandy bottom and supports a variety of fish and fowl and is large enough that all types of water sports and crafts can be enjoyed.

I (Randy) am an audio & lighting production contractor/engineer and my wife (Sheila) is a family services site coodinator in Traverse City, Michigan. The cottage has been in the family since the mid seventies and we aquired it in 1995. Since then our family has enjoyed and so much looked forward to our time spent at the McNeil Cottage each and every year, and urge anyone looking for a relaxing, unplugged vacation on one of the most beautiful lakes in Michigan to try Lake Leelanau and the McNeil Cottage.

Randall Nash purchased this cottage in 1995

If you enjoy a relaxing, unplugged (no cable, no phone, no internet) vacation where the days become yours and a midnight swim or breakfast at the waters edge or enjoying a romantic, captivating fire under a star-lit sky warms your heart, then you're here.

The lake is large, beautiful and supports all water related activities. The sunsets are to die for and the ambience is 'On Golden Pond'. Due partly to the fact that we are unplugged and that natures wonders surround us, it is much like taking a step backwards in time, shedding the stresses of todays world and simply finding joy in watching a family of Swans meandering about or a crayfish playing hide & seek at the waters edge or losing yourself in a good book while the sunset dances on your face. It is truely a world away from the hustle bustle, fast paced world in which we live. It is a place that we love!

FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at the McNeil cottage in the past and came again this year because it is so comfortable and easy to stay. The setting on the water is perfect for families with and without boats. The water is so shallow that it's easy to allow kids to have fun. The yard is big enough to enjoy bon fires and run around playing games safely at the same time. We have nothing that could even be improved...it's perfect for us.

CLEAN, ROOMY, COMFORTABLE, BEAUTIFUL AREA

  • 4 of 5
The cottage was extremely clean and very roomy. There is a huge family room with lots of windows and seating to look out at the lake (Owner should add a picture of this room). The kitchen had enough room to prepare all our meals and was stocked with lots of little extras like foil, spices, cooking spray, trash bags, etc. The gas grill was very clean and cooked our food better than my own grill at home! The bedrooms were small (as expected), but the beds and sleeper sofa were very comfortable. Bathroom was huge for a cottage and the new shower/tub combo was great for bathing young kids. There is a 20 food wide sandy area that goes into the water, but really isn't big enough for kids to dig, play sand castle, etc. If it is windy or speed boats are out, the sandy area gets waves right up to the grass. The weather did not cooperate; it was very windy and cold. And since the lot faces north, very shady in August. The shade and breeze would have been awesome this summer when the rest of Michigan was 100 degrees! I’m sure the sun sets and sun bathing areas would be nicer May-July. Fire pit was awesome and lots of wood was provided. Row boat was a nice extra and we had lots of fun in the morning before it warmed up; the “Narrows” are beautiful. All-in-all it was good time.

My mom had rented out this cottage for our first ever Labor Day weekend vacation with our family. We had a wonderful time and found it very hard to leave. The cottage itself was very nice and well maintained. The property is beautiful and the lake is huge! I would definately come back. I miss it already! Hopefully we have found a new family tradition.
