Leland Michigan Harborfront. This new home/condo is prime, with decks overlooking historic Fishtown, Lake Michigan and incredible sunsets. Two sandy Lake Michigan public access beaches and Leland Harbor are located just steps away. Enjoy the quaint village of Leland picturesquely nestled on the Leelanau peninsula and all it has to offer: Shopping, antiquing, casual and fine dining, wineries and countless activities! This is one of Michigan's postcard locations.

We are fortunate to be located near State and National parks with all their many amenities, including a national treasure - the Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore with its sandy dunes flowing into Lake Michigan. Historic Traverse City with regional Cherry Capitol Airport is about 25 miles away, while the wonderful villages of Glen Arbor, Northport, Empire, Suttons Bay, Lake Leelanau and Frankfort are only a short distance through national parks, allowing for a beautiful and memorable drive or bike.
We have been coming up to Leland for over 30 years. Nothing compares to driving up north, taking the final curves on M-22 along Lake Leelanau, and feeling suddenly at peace as you enter the village of Leland.

Unique location across from Leland Harbor opposite Lake Michigan.
We had a wonderful stay! Unit is centrally located in town, a short walk to shops, dining and all the water fun that you could want. Our kids especially liked the Ice cream shop and the "dam" candy store! Look forward to returning next summer!!
Trips to the Manitou Islands about 20 miles off the shore of Leland are always popular. State and National parks are everywhere in Leelanau County with fantastic hiking, biking trails, boating, kayaking, swimming, skiing, snowshoeing and many other activities! Sleeping Bear National Park with its famous Dune Climb just minutes away.
