The Larkin family has owned the Captain's Cottage since 1978. Many a wonderful summer vacation has been spent in this old house. 'Grandma Larkin's is now in a nursing home, but still has expenses to take care of to keep this historic home alive. Lynn, Tom, & Melissa are now jointly running the business end of the rentals. We look forward to keeping our wonderful old 'sea captains' house a happy place for visitors to enjoy for years to come.
Northport has been a family vacation spot for decades. Lynn's former husband was the pastor of the Trinity Church, in Northport, in the 1970's. From that point on, the family began purchasing vacation homes in the area. Northern Leelanau County is just about the most beautiful spot in the whole country, during the summer!
The Captain's Cottage is a wonderful historic home, right in the most centrally located part of Northport. Literally, everything is an easy walk away. The best beach is only one block away. The rest of the town, and it's stores etc., are only 3 blocks away. We have always loved it there, and you will too!
Leelanau Sands Casino within 10 miles; National Cherry Festival in July; Northport 'Music in the park' on Fridays; and many other, weekly, summer events to see and do from Northport to Traverse City!
