Cedar House Rental Photos and Description
House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-8)
South Lake Leelanau is the Best of Both Worlds - a sought after Fishing Lake and an All-Water Sports Lake. Lake Leelanau, being a natural spring fed lake that flows into Lake Michigan at the dam in Leland, is simply beautiful in itself. Sleeping Bear Dunes is a short drive from the cottage and won 2011 GMA 'Most Beautiful Place in America' contest.
There is nothing like sitting on the deck while sipping your morning coffee and catching the sun's first glistening rays of the day peek across the lake. Watch the kids swim right out in front of the cottage 20 feet to the water, while the guys troll for a walleye.
We spent $9000.00 in Spring 2010 updating the cottage, taking out walls in kitchen, new flooring, and new windows. Winter 2011 we remodeled the bathroom, installed new tile, cabinets, pocket door to improve the bathroom.
You will feel right at home in our cottage with a TV, DVD,VCR, Cable, Internet Connection, a well equipped kitchen, newer stove Maytag Gemini double oven. You'll love our 20 x 25' deck that faces the lake stacked with seating, chairs and newer gas grill. There is also a lawn swing by the shoreline. Nice sandy lake bottom swimming area no rocks or muck.
We put out 120 feet of dock and it's shallow and a hard sandy bottom all the way past the dock - wonderful for swimming and just playing in the water! Drag a chair around the fire pit for an evening campfire by the lake.
Bring your boat and tie up to our dock. The public boat ramp is just 2 miles north of the cottage. There are several spots to travel to by boat (or car). Lakeside at Perrins Landing is fun to stop or gas, get a Coney dog or a long beach. Dick's in Lake Leelanau is always a must for lunch or supper. And a trip to Lake Leelanau would never be complete without the trip to Leland for ice cream/shop/eat!
We are sure you will fall in love with Lake Leelanau too!

Great location, waterfront home with nice sandy lake bottom and clear water. Nice vacation area near winery, and remote country area.

What makes this house unique
Watch the sunrise over the lake from the living room of our home. Nice area to take a morning walk, run or bike and get ready for the day. Well off any main road and away from traffic on a private road.
