This family owned vacation home is only ten years old with many premium features providing that luxurious vacation or get away on beautiful 20+ mile long Lake Leelanau. The home is available year-round and has air conditioning. The shoreline on this part of Lake Leelanau has a nice sandy bottom.
Lake Leelanau is an all sports lake for swimming, boating, water skiing, and great fishing for walleye and bass. The lake depth at shore is shallow about 15 inches deep with great swimming for kids - the lake depth gets about waist deep at the end of our 190 foot private dock. The house is suited and equipped for all ages of the family - for the seniors that don't like a lot of steps; the get-away for couples that include some nice luxury features; and amenities for the kids such as the sand box, sand toys and shallow water with a nice firm sandy lake bottom.
The cottage is perpendicular to the lake providing lake views from half of the home including the kitchen and island, family room area and master bedroom. There is a large glass slider off the kitchen that leads onto the large deck on the lake side. Patio furniture and table along with the gas grill are on the deck. The cottage is less than 100 feet from the water's edge.
There is a fire pit just a few yards from the lake. The cottage is located on a private road away from traffic and a nice environment for the kids away from traffic.
The cottage has four bedrooms and sleeps eight. The master bedroom has a king size bed, private bathroom, HD television/Direct TV with slider onto deck. One bedroom has a queen bed. One bedroom has twin beds which can be made up into a king. One of the bedrooms has a television and Blue-ray for games. One smaller bedroom has bunk beds.
The kitchen is fully equipped. There is a separate laundry room. No Smoking. No Pets, local kennel is only 20 minutes away. The waterfront cottage is just a short drive from Lake Michigan, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park, Shopping at Glen Arbor, Leland, Lake Leelanau, Suttons Bay, Traverse City. Golf is nearby at Sugar Loaf, Leelanau Club, or Kings Challenge Golf Course. Two Casinos - Leelanau Sands Casino in Suttons Bay and Turtle Creek Casino in Williamsburg.
Many sightseeing opportunities throughout the entire county, many local wineries and restaurants available. Laptop computer provided with high speed internet access and wireless available. Great get-away for family vacation, color tour, skiers, hunting, snowmobilers, fishermen, golf, shoppers, and gamblers.
In the winter, snowmobiles are available for rent. You can take your boat to the towns of Lake Leelanau, Leland, or Cedar for excellent dining, sight-seeing or shopping. Gas service for your boat is available at several locations on the lake. During the summer, a pontoon boat is available for rent and available at the dock. There is a public boat launch within a couple of blocks of the house. If you bring your own boat it can be tied to the dock.
This is the second time we have rented this place. It is phenomenal. Since the last time we (group of friends) were there, an outdoor kitchen and hot tub have been added. The home has the most up-to-date appliances, everything is clean and in good repair, kitchen is well appointed, comfortable furnishings, more than you can expect in many rentals.
The location is also excellent for seeing the peninsula. We probably visited 20 wineries in 2 days, all conveniently located. The house is a particularly good value if you rent in the off season, a great time of year for wine country. Don't pass this one up!
This home exceeded every expectation. It is a beautiful, immaculate home on stunning Lake Leelanau. My husband and I stayed here for our 22 year anniversary, and what a luxurious way to celebrate. This home has everything you could ask for. It was the most enjoyable, peaceful vacation we've ever had. We loved the nearby Sugarfoot Saloon, great food, and made many excursions to Empire Beach, Pierce Stocking Drive, Suttons Bay, and nearby Leland. So much to do, so many great restaurants, and such peaceful sleep. We love this home, and highly recommend it.
My daughters and I rented this home for a week. Everything we needed was there for cooking and entertaining. We had a wonderful time visiting the wineries, new distilliers, brewing companies as well as the hiking and biking trails. THe owner made sure all of our needs were being met and contacted us both on arrival and mid-week to make sure we had no issues or problems. We rented his pontoon and went for boat rides and tubbing. What a blast! We enjoyed the outside firepit and nightly smors. My girls said this was the best vacation ever! We would definately do this one again. The home is beautiful and well kept. It was perfect for family fun.
This is our second year staying at this home….it was even better than last year!! The home is so very clean, comfortable, & you lack for nothing. Larry, the owner, checked in on us to make sure all was up to our liking, and as always it was perfect. We love the area, the wineries, the towns, & top of our list is the house & lake. We have already booked next year!!!!! Looking so forward to it. I would totally recommend this home.
The Fleis cottage is an awesome rental property . . . Very nice home, VERY clean, very well-equipped, great lakefront, awesome fire pit, great location! Thank you for an exceptional property at which to spend our family vacation!
We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 day weekend at Larry and Jackie's vacation rental house. We were there to attend a wedding at the Black Star Farms Winery. It was definitely more luxurious and affordable for all of us to stay at the house than to get motel rooms. We had 3 couples and 1 other adult, all in our 60's and 70's. The house was clean and more than adequate. And Larry was so kind to let us in early the day we arrived! We had an "evening to remember" around the fire pit, as we watched the sun go down. The dock is truly amazing! We would have enjoyed the pontoon boat if it would have been available, but we'll save that for next time (we'll be back again!).
Other Activities: Shopping, Kayaking, Boating, Snowboarding, Snowmobiling, Wildlife Viewing, Miniature golf.
