Northport Cottage Rental Photos and Description

MI Northern Spot: This is a peaceful relaxing area right on Grand Traverse Bay at the mouth of Lake Michigan. Stretch out on the hammock or dine outside. Quiet spot on the east side of West Grand Traverse Bay on the tip of Leelanau Peninsula. This is an area of great natural beauty and serenity, yet it’s only 6 miles north of the quaint village of Northport where you can find great food, Tom's Grocery Store, Barb's Bakery, gift and clothing stores. The marina is a great place to have a picnic, enjoy live music in the summer or the great beach/park for family fun.

This 3 bedroom 1 bath has room for up to 10. There are two bedrooms upstairs including the master with a king sized bed and the second with bunk beds and an extra twin-sized mattress. The downstairs bedroom is a large room with a queen sized bed and 2 twins, For extra sleeping capacity, the living room features a full sized pullout sofa.

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything for cooking and eating. There is a washer and dryer and towels and bedding are provided. The cottage has 60 ft of private frontage on Grand Traverse Bay / Lake Michigan, which guests can explore from our rowboat or canoe and/or enjoy nightly campfires on our beach.

We are located only two miles south of the Leelanau State Park and Grand Traverse Lighthouse where you will find lighthouse tours, demonstrations, picnic and playgrounds, beaches and miles of hiking/skiing trails. The subdivision amenities include shared access with four waterfront parks on Grand Traverse Bay / Lake Michigan, forty acres of hiking trails, playground, basketball court, and tennis courts.

My children and I love the peace and tranquility of the great north.

Loreli Cobb purchased this cottage in 2009

We started looking for a lake house in West Michigan this, and I came across a listing for a house in Northport, Michigan on-line. I loved the idea of having a place 'up north', and my dream became reality. We have enjoyed many mini-vacations since then. We rent it because I work and don't get to get up there as often as I like. The first thing my kids do when we visit 'the blue house' is open the guest book to see how our friends enjoyed the place while we were gone.

We love swimming, wave jumping, and just spending lazy days at the beach.

Mi favorite Northern Spot is Mi Northern Addiction!!

My family and I have had the pleasure of renting Mi Northern Addiction in both the cold and warm weather seasons. Northport is a hidden treasure of natural beauty which offers a peaceful setting for the outdoor adventurer but also is convenient to excellent dining, unique waterfront shopping and quaint up north spots.
The hosts were very accomodating, the blue house is charming, comfortable, clean and equipped with all the necessary conveniences. The view of the lake is spectacular from the deck on the house and the beachfront campfires are what memoires are made of. I have young boys who like to swim if you are planning on swimming in the back be sure to bring your water shoes to protect your feet from the zebra mussels. If you prefer a sandy beach with tennis courts and play park you can walk to the private association beach down the street, or you can check out the three other association beach spots within 1 mile of the house. As a renter you are allowed access to all of these groomed areas. The residents are very welcolming to all. If you prefer the woods there is about 3 miles of walking/running trails within a few steps outside of your door.
Don't forget about the 17 local wineries up the M-22 Penninsula, the local downtown areas of Northport (have to go to Stubbs to eat), Leland & Fishtown, Suttons Bay (Roman Wheel Pizza), Sleeping Bear Dunes, Glen Arbor and of course Traverse City.
This property exceeded our expecations and will be our return to spot for years to come.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your response on the shells on our beach as I always try to make sure everyone who visits remembers to bring watershoes. There is a marvelous sand beach just off Densmore Rd. by the airport. It's a 0.2 mile easy hike to get to the beach, but this sugar sand, Lake Michigan beach is well worth it.

I traveled to the blue house in Northport in early May. Though the "season" had not begun, there were plenty to things to do in Northport and Sutton's Bay. The house was very clean and just what I expected from viewing the photos online. The owners were very accommodating and responsive. I would recommend staying here to anyone.
