My parents owned this house for decades. I am managing this property for my mother. I have been coming to Leland since my childhood. I have lived in the Leland area since 1987, and have spent many wonderful hours at the family river house on Oak Street.
The Owner purchased this house in 1980
This house has been in my family for over 30 years.
This house is on the beautiful Leland River with shoreline gardens, a large grassy yard, and riverfront deck and dock. Take a relaxing canoe, kayak or boat ride down the Leland River (canoe and kayak included), to restaurants and shopping. In the other direction, the River opens on to Lake Leelanau (both North and South) for boating, fishing, wild-life viewing in the Narrows, water skiing or just cruising the vast shoreline and viewing the cottages.
"Big celebration over here at the River House! My husband just asked
about reserving this home for next summer. Hooray! This house is
absolute perfection. Not quite sure I've ever been happier on a
We had a great time here! The cottage was well stocked, clean and beautiful, especially the lawn and garden. We loved being on the river---we sat on the dock, kayaked, played bocce on the lawn. Biking or walking into town was easy. We hope to stay here again! Thanks for everything!
Our family of four stayed here the last week of July, 2010. It is a very comfortable home in a great location. We especially enjoyed our time on the dock watching the boat traffic on the river. You can easily walk to town for everything that town has to offer.
