I relocated from a busy Metro area to beautiful Leelanau County with the dream of providing couples and families with clean and comfortable lodging that was affordable.

Being an 'Innkeeper' and seeing smiles on our guests faces year after year is very rewarding to us, especially when you hear a child ask their parents 'can we come back to the Cottage next year?'

Bill UpNorth... purchased this chateau / country house in 1994

We are situated in the heart of one of the most magnificent areas. When I found our 'Hobby Farm' included was what once was a 100+ year-old Granary. I visualized a comfy Country Guesthouse for travelers in Spring, Summer & Fall that was centered in our magnificent Leelanau County.

After a complete renovation and more than 18-months of hard work, LEELANAU COUNTRY COTTAGE accommodated their first guests receiving many compliments.

We have since welcomed Tourists locally and far away, Winery Touring guests, many bicycle enthusiasts and even folks from Europe wishing to see the splendor of our area.

Folks from all around bring their bicycles to enjoy riding on The Leelanau Trail which is inter-connected to the many TART Trails that run through our region. You can be a casual rider or an avid cyclist and find the scenery and winding Trail is breathtaking, pleasant and maintained for everyone's use.

We are close to 8+ Wineries and Tasting Rooms, immediately adjacent to the fresh pavement of THE LEELANAU TRAIL and just minutes away from 'postcard perfect' freshwater beaches.

We WILL re-book with alternative visiting dates upon 'reasonable' notice. While we strive for efficiency, IF we make a mistake in any reservation, we will be liable for amounts that we received as a prepaid deposit only. We will make every effort to re-book your stay with alternative dates at no additional charge.

Owner's Response: My goal all along when reconstructing the Cottage was to be able to provide that cozy feeling to people that are taking a break with a small journey in mind. I am happy to hear from people again and again that they leave with a smile feeling relaxed.

Watch the online calendar for availability. You are always welcome here!

My best to you,

VERY NICE PLACE

  • 5 of 5
We came to Sutton's Bay for a wedding. There were 5 adults in our family that stayed at the cottage. The location and accommodations worked out well for us. I would highly recommend Leelanau Cottage to visitors staying in this area.

Very nice cottage in an excellent location close to everything in the greater Traverse City area. The cottage is very, very clean which is super important for me. Everything is provided for your use and there is no special laundry or cleaning fee. Bill the owber is very friendly and respoects your privacy. Close to wineries and there is a championship golf course less than 5 minutes away from the cottage. I highly recommend this cottage!

A BEAUTIFUL AND CLEAN HOME AWAY FROM HOME GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
This was our second year in a row staying at the Leelanau Country Cottage, this time without our 2 young daughters. My wife and I were amazed, as we were last year, with the cleanliness of this beautiful cottage. Bill the property owner had brochures and maps set out for us, even leaving the lights and TV on for us, prior to our late night weekend arrival. We met with Bill the day after we arrived and he is an absolutely amazing human being. He took the time out of his busy day to speak with my wife and I and to welcome us back, providing us with suggestions on which areas to visit. I am very critical while doing reviews and I must say that the Leelanau Country Cottage is the BEST! Kudos Bill for doing such an amazing job. Your hospitality will guide us right back to you each year!

Owner's Response: You two are always welcome here. It will be fun to get together as we spoke, during your next visit! Thank you for appreciating the efforts that are made to bring a comfortable and pleasant visit to all guests that come here.

I was happy to see you both out exploring the different areas that are here because there is so much natural beauty. It isn't possible to take it all in over just one weekend.

I hope that next visit we can share some time and just chat around a campfire.

My best wishes to you and yours!
