PRIVATE BEACH ON GRAND TRAVERSE BAY & LAKE MICH 3 BR/2 BA

Northport Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Spend a week relaxing on the shores of Grand Traverse Bay while watching the waves roll in from Lake Michigan. Our fully furnished home is located at the tip of the Leelanau Peninsula, One mile from Grand Traverse Lighthouse and Museum. We are one of the few cottage rentals with a view of both bodies of majestic waters. Enjoy the calmer waters of GTB while watching freighters make their away around the Tip of the Leelanau Penninsula to/from Chicago to the Straits of Mackinaw.

This 1250 square foot three bedroom with oak flooring; two full bath cottage has ceramic floors in the kitchen, laundry, halls and bathrooms with granite counter tops in kitchen and baths.

Settle down in the oak floored dining room and living room while watching the flames dance in the gas log fireplace. Or enjoy the HD TV and Blu-Ray player when it rains. You can grill on the deck while listening to the waves as they gently slap against the beach.

The front of the house has two sets of patio doors so you can sit inside and watch passing boaters on the Bay and freighters on the Great Lakes while sipping your AM coffee and viewing spectacular sunrises over the Bay. There is 85 feet of private beach. Beach is sand with a few small rocks and shells,but enough space to enjoy the sun in a chaise lounge. The Great Lakes make the beach variable daily. We suggest watershoes for swimming in Northern Michigan as the lake bottom is rocky. Beach and bottom varies as the sands shift daily.

The master bedroom is furnished with a queen size bed, dresser, futon and HD TV on all oak floors. The attached master bath has new granite and double sinks and ceramic flooring to accomodate the tub/shower. The second and third bedrooms have queen size beds with dressers with oak flooring.

The smoke-free house is located on a paved road in a private association which has a tennis and basketball courts, three parks, excellent walking beaches and hiking trails.

Bikes and a canoe with paddles are provided to let you experience your serene surroundings, or sit shoreside and enjoy the fire pit while watching the moonbeams glisten across the Bay.

You are within 17 miles of the Leelanau Sands Casino, 36 miles from plenty of shopping in Traverse City. Local towns of Suttons Bay and Leland are a short 20 minute drive from your retreat.

Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park and Shoreline are just a 45 minute drive to view the 'MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACE IN AMERICA' per Good Morning America's 2011 viewers poll. National Geographic Magazine named our area as one of the TEN BEST SUMMER TRIPS 2012. Enjoy the quaint little bayside Village of Glen Arbor which is located just a few miles from the Dunes. Schedule a day at the Spas or golf at the Homestead before you journey back to the Sunrise Side of the Leelanau Penninsula.

There are 20+ wineries located on the peninsula which have daily wine tasting for your pleasure. There is a FANTASTIC marina in Northport to launch your boat for all water activities. The Inland Seas Educational Sailing Boat is located in Suttons Bay Marina area.

You can golf at the Leelanau Club of Bahl Farms. Go bird watching at the newly created bird santuary. Enjoy Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park on a day trip to the sunset shore of the peninsula. Take a hot air balloon ride out of Traverse City! Visit the Manitou Islands, sale the Tall Ship Manitou sailing ship which also is a B&B and located in Traverse City.

No reservation is confirmed until 50% downpayment and lease is received.

About Gloria Cobb

Just two people who love the Great Lakes and beaches! The loons, swans and seagulls float by as we sit on the deck and enjoy the blue waters of the Great Lakes. This is our little bit of Heaven and we would like you to witness the endless beauty that we enjoy.

Gloria Cobb purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Gloria Cobb chose Northport

There is no place like the Great Lakes along with wineries and marinas.

What makes this cottage unique

Finding Petoskey Stones on the beach. Fishing off the Manitou Islands. Wine tasting. Freightor watching. Loon listening. Peace & quiet. A great place to lose all of your worries and stress and get in touch with Mother Nature and your inner being.

As usual, Matt & I had a great time staying at the cottage. This is our third "Fall Getaway" in a row. This time, we brought our friends Stephanie & Jason to see how enjoyable the cottage is! Last night, we had a bonfire on the beach. It was really nice. We made hobodinners and wrapped them in tinfoil, and cookedn them on the fire. We burned the food, but a good time was had by all. We'll be back again next year!!

Quiet and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5
For being so late in the autumn color season, we had still great colors to see. The home was clean and very accessible from a paved road, yet private feeling with the many trees around it, even in a neighborhood. A great getaway with no surprises. Yep, it not located close to any big attractions, but that is what we wanted. Of the last four houses we have rented, it is our top choice. We would go back to it because it was just as advertised, with nothing catching us off guard. It was warm, comfortable, and relaxing. We did see a few freighters go by far away on the lake. We could hear shore waves lapping when sitting on the porch, but not inside the house. The neighborhood is very well kept and quiet. Even our little Pomeranian loved the place. Did I mention it was relaxing? Oh, and the owners were very cooperative and helpful.

Great find!

  • 5 of 5
Generic overview: A lovely home with great views. Beds were comfortable, kitchen had appropriate cookware, outdoor grill was an added plus. Plenty of outdoor seating, large indoor dining area, spacious master bath.

Personal input: This family of four plus one dog felt at home during our stay. The neighborhood has a comminity common area for basketball and tennis, plus some playscapes. We actually didn't have time to enjoy that area too much, as the comforts of Cobb Cottage kept us busy with beach bonfires and daily canoeing.

I have told everyone that has asked about our stay all sorts of good things!

Just beautiful!

  • 5 of 5
The house is very comfortable and the view is unbelievable. We spent a lot of early mornings out on the deck just watching the water. My teen boys paddled the canoe to the middle of the lake every day! Northport and Sutton's Bay are pretty close when we wanted civilization, but it was great to be "off the grid" at the tip of the penninsula and do a whole lot of nothing!

On the beach

  • 4 of 5
Pros:
Great location- amazing view of Grand Traverse Bay. Private beach, nice outdoor furniture, private canoe for our use, gas grill and hammock made our stay very nice. Nice flooring and furniture inside and fabulous flat screen TV's including in the huge master bedroom! Landlord/owner is amazing and accommodating. She was very professional, organized and responsive to our needs both before and during the rental.

Cons:
Not too many. It was a hot week and not too much cross ventilation in house. Recommend putting ceiling fan in master bedroom and to make sure all floor fans are operational. Might consider getting new kitchen appliances and eventually upgrade bathroom fixtures. The walkway up to front door was very uneven and someone could easily trip.
