Spacious, private, clean, family friendly home located on the waters of Northport Bay, nestled on a quiet street, and less than a mile to the village of Northport. The home has 130 feet of waterfront, a sandy area for kids to play(with a playground and fire-pit), a dock for easy access to the water, and a second level deck.
This home has 3 levels of living. The main floor has a great room offering spectacular views of the water and sunrises. It also houses the master suite with a queen bed and full bath. There is an office next to the master suite that has a twin bed. The top floor is cozy and quiet with two bedrooms--one with a queen(and crib) and the second with a queen and twin. The finished walkout has two more bedrooms--one with two twins and the second with a bunk-bed that has a full bed on the bottom. The walkout leads to a patio with an outdoor shower, porch swing, and the sandy backyard.
This home is open year round and surrounded by outdoor activities galore. If you don't have a boat there are several marinas that do rent motorboats, kayaks, jet skis, etc. The water is crystal clear, refreshing, and because of the bay, warmer than Lake Michigan. There are several parks, natural areas, and of course the National Lakeshore, that are great to explore in the summer or winter. Nearby there are plenty of quaint little towns for shopping and Traverse City is a short and beautiful 40 minute drive away with anything you would ever need.

We grew up vacationing in northern Michigan. It was a tradition that started when our mother was a child. Here's what we remember about those summers--sand in everything, even food--dune picnics--cherries--walking to ice cream on a nightly basis--some cool days to spend shopping or reading a book inside--community bands performing outdoor concerts--whitefish--a house packed with relatives--and memories that last a lifetime.
