Overview

Lake Leelanau Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Fresh 2BR 1BA Cottage sleeps 6, full kitchen, indoor & outdoor eating areas

Unit 4 of West Wind Resort, a collection of 11 cozy cottages, is on over 400 feet of direct lake frontage on beautiful Lake Leelanau! The Resort has so much to offer: On the water side take in the sandy beach to gather Petoskey stones and relax in the sun, fire pits to make the day linger into night, a romantic gazebo, private protected harbor for your boat (up to 22 feet), lots of land to play catch with the kids or just sit back and enjoy the nature of Northern Michigan. The back side of the cottage features a gigantic children's playscape, volleyball court, horseshoe stakes, basketball court, trailer and extra car parking and a fish cleaning area for all the Walleye and Bass you'll catch! If you're thinking family reunion, we can explore multiple unit rentals.

The inside scoop: Inside you'll find one bedroom with a queen bed, and the second bedroom has two twin beds. There is a sleeper futon in living area. Brand new in 2013, the fully equipped kitchen features a full size refrigerator, stove, oven, microwave, coffee pot, pots, pans, dishes, blender, toaster etc...

The exterior offers a picnic table, propane grill, fire pits, playscape, private harbor, basketball court, volleyball, horseshoes, sandy beach, open area for running and playing and all that Northern Michigan has to offer!

Lake Leelanau is an unlimited use lake where you can swim, powerboat, pontoon, ski, wakeboard, fish, sail, windsurf and whatever else you can dream up. If you are interested in renting a boat or personal watercraft, I'd be happy to email you rental company names.

With this central location, Northern Michigan is at your fingertips! Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes, Leland, Interlochen Arts Academy, Leelanau Trail, Traverse City, two peninsulas of wine tasting and brewery exploration, golf courses, Suttons Bay, Chrystal Mountain, Glen Arbor and The Homestead, Lake Michigan, fresh fruit picking, hiking trails, canoeing and tubing on many rivers....the list is endless.

You'll find many brochures and information inside the cottage to help you decide how to spend your time......if you want to leave the beach that is!

Need more info? Got a question? I'd be happy to help find the information you need to make your stay a memorable one.

Call for more information on any activity and we'll get you going! Don't forget about just relaxing though - there's plenty of space for that!!!

About Ann Porter

We are so fortunate to live in Traverse City and call this cottage our second home. We are vacationing here ourselves when it is not rented, so we maintain it as if we were living there. We clean it ourselves, so we take our time and do it right, so you can sit back and relax once you open the door!

Ann Porter purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Ann Porter chose Lake Leelanau

My husband Chris and I first saw West Wind on a cold December Saturday, but fell in love with It’s location, glimmering sunset, open property, beautiful beach and private harbor. It has so much to offer, both on the property itself and in its central location to so much of Northern Michigan.

Each year we try to make the cottage a little more like home, without taking away its charm and character.

So far we’ve replaced all the windows and the roof, painted over the exterior orange and brown, added flower boxes and whimsical shutters and tried to create a fun feel. We added ceramic tile in the bath and re carpeted. The polka dot room with the star ceiling was the brainchild of our children.

Our latest project was the kitchen. Brand new as of June 20th, 2013!

We hope you find the cottage comfortable and fun!

What makes this cottage unique

Location, location, location! As a Realtor, I know how important this is, and this cottage has it all. Close to everything you would want to do and see in Northern MI, and with the beach and private harbor right out your front door!

Beautiful location.

  • 3 of 5
The cottage suited our needs for touring the wineries. It was tastefully decorated. The kitchen and living room were small, but we did not use it much. The twin bed I slept on was very uncomfortable. Our biggest complaint was a lack of hot water. Nobody in our group was able to get a hot shower or even a luke warm one for that matter. I emailed the owner on the Wednesday before our stay to request linen service but never got a response back from her, nor when I emailed her again on Thursday. I found her lack of response a little disappointing as well.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of our Lake Leelanau Cottage. We do have a small hot water tank, so guest showering does require some staggering in timing. I do apologize about my lack of response regarding our linen service. I gladly provide that service, and typically can accommodate a last minute request. It is a beautiful spot and hope you were able to enjoy the fall colors while you were here!

Great location, great value

We loved the little cottage! Right on Lake Leelanau, with a nice sandy beach, a play structure for kids, fire pit, grill- what more could you want. The cottage is nice and has everything you need. My only minor complaint is that the water heater capacity is insufficient, so no long showers!
