Overview

Northport House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8)

Near the very tip of Lealanau, surrounded by forest, state parks and conservancy land. The cottage is just on top of the dunes among beech, birch and pine trees. Take in the view of Lake Michigan and the Fox Islands from the wood-burning hot tub at the end of the wrap-around deck. Perfect for quiet days reading, long hikes, bike riding and star gazing. Sunrises and sunsets are wonderfully colorful. Walk to Leelanau State Park for great dunes and perfect sand beaches or north to Grand Traverse Lighthouse.

Additional outdoor shower with hot and cold water. Newer laundry and kitchen appliances. We love to cook, so we make sure the kitchen is fully functional---good quality pots, knives, and each spring we stock the cabinet with fresh flour, oils, sugar, baking supplies, spices, etc.

The barn includes a ping-pong table and dart board on the second floor. Inside the barn you will also find several bikes and a bike trailer, sails for a Sunfish, two kayaks, a sailboard, the charcoal grill, a badminton set, and life jackets in every size.

Three bedrooms--two have Queen beds and one has two sets of bunk beds/ 4 beds. Linens included.

The links below takes you to google maps and more pictures.

Weekly rental from Saturday to Saturday. Check in is 3 p.m. on the first day, and check out is 10 a.m. on the last day when there are people there before or after you.

Note that google maps sometimes puts our house in the wrong place. As you are driving north, you would turn left on Cathead Bay Drive----we are on the Lake Michigan side, not the bay side.

If you have any questions at all, please ask!

Why The Owner chose Northport

My wife grew up coming to this part of Michigan with her family. The weather in the summer is perfect, people are nice, and it is not very crowded.

What makes this house unique

'The feeling of being secluded. We've spent whole days here and only seen one or two other people. A perfect day begins with a cup of coffee at the kitchen table watching the birds in the bay with a backdrop of the sunrise washing over the spit of land that creates the bay. Depending on the wind, go kayaking or sailing. A hike to the top of the dunes to see Lake Michigan and Grand Traverse Bay at the same time. A good finish to the day is to stoke the hot tub to relax before grilling dinner.'

Amazing

  • 5 of 5
Very cool location, beautiful grounds, the cabin was spotless and everything went off without a hitch. The owners are very cool and helpful. We had a great time. Will definitely come back. Would be a blast for a family with kids that like to be outside but it's also perfect for a romantic getaway.

Lovely, Relaxing Property

  • 5 of 5
We stayed the first week of Sept. It was absolutely beautiful. The cottage was very clean. Comfy beds and furniture. Kitchen was fully stocked. We couldn't get enough of the deck! We saw freighter's going by every morning. And even could see the islands on really clear days. Gorgeous sunsets. We even had a fire in the fireplace one night that got chilly. We can't say enough about this place. Its magical! We were so relaxed and had such a great time. Thanks!

Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5
The property gets 4.5 stars. The location is ideal. We awoke with water views each morning. The kids played on the sandy area and in the trees while we made breakfast. After breakfast or when we had down time, the family would explore the water front. There are lots of rocks for turning over or for jumping on. The kids loved catching toads and snails. We also used the kayaks and sail boat that are generously provided. The community beach is fantastic and convenient. It was quiet with lovely views. There are also large sand dunes just a bit down the road that the kids loved playing on.

I ran through the cathead bay community and to the light house a few days. The hills were great exercise.

There are so many things to do within a short drive. We also enjoyed exploring Northport. We loved eating at The Garage and having a sweet treat in the morning from Barb's Bakery.

The owner was very responsive and the property is well maintained. The shake sided barn is the first thing you see when you pull down the drive way and it just says "ahhh, vacation has started". It fits the surroundings perfectly.

Kids loved the bunk beds in the 3rd bedroom.

The kitchen was well stocked with appliances and spices!

Loved the outdoor shower!

Great summer vacation with our 6 and 10 year old and our parents.

We stayed in a cabin on the lakefront. The house and property was well kept and stocked with items we could use during our stay. That included kayaks, bikes, and other necessary household items like a grill. Other helpful directions were given to help us enjoy our stay. We want to return.

Excellent place!

  • 5 of 5
This rental place is amazing for our honeymoon! The view from the house is great and the house is so cozy. We were able to enjoy sunsets while soaking in the hot tub followed by fires in the fireplace inside. Steve was a great person to work with! Always prompt on returning my emails and provided us with a very extensive list of things to do in the area and how to work things around the house. We would highly recommend a stay here and plan on coming back again!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four stayed very comfortably at this house...super clean, and very relaxing. One point...if you're looking for a perfect beach, this is not the place...very rocky bottom once you get through the marshy beach. There is a fantastic beach within a very short bike ride, though, so it's not a big deal. Views are great; love that the cottage is nestled in the trees! The owner is very helpful and responsive. The photos and information given on this website are very accurate. Northport is a very quiet small town...Leland is a longer drive, but lots more to do there. All in all, I would recommend this house to anyone.
