About Sarah

This property was purchased by Joe and Sarah Albring. We met in 2002 and started enjoying northern Michigan together almost immediately. We traveled through all parts of northern MI, but during every trip we gravitated towards Traverse City. While the choices for lake homes in MI were abundant we knew we wanted to be near Traverse City. We also wanted a lake environment where are young children could play and grow up in a safe environment. We love Traverse City and Northern Michigan. We sincerely hope you start or continue your lover affair wit the great white north at our lake home.

Sarah purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Sarah chose Traverse City

Lake Leelanau and Traverse City are the perfect marriage of relaxation and sophistication. Location is everything for this property. The home is within 20 minutes of great dining, wineries, world class golf, bike and walking trails, fishing, kayaking, boating and skiing. This truly is outdoor playground. Enjoy!

Excellent property!

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here over the Harvest Stompede weekend... Property was clean, comfortable and well stocked. Great location on the lake, convenient for wine tasting in the peninsula or a short drive into Traverse City! Exceptional value compared to hotels in the area. Would definitely recommend to family and friends!

amazing upnorth getaway

  • 5 of 5
Sarah's retreat was the best rental property we have ever stayed at. We had 10 guys upnorth for a long weekend golf trip, and we couldnt be more pleased with the house and renting process.

The house was clean, neat, and perfectly laid out. The backyard is perfect for lawn games and activities, and you cannot beat the views from the huge porch off the upstairs living room. The house is only 15 minutes from downtown Traverse, but far enough away to be secluded in your own area.

I highly recommend looking at this property when staying anywhere near Traverse.

What a beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5
We loved the guest house at Sarah's Retreat on the lake. What a gorgeous lake! Not only was the water very clear, but the temperature was much better for swimming than it was in Traverse City. The guest house was very nice - clean and updated, and the sleeping porch was fantastic! What great views! It was even great to catch the sunset from the end of the dock. Having small kids, we appreciated that there was a high chair as well as cups and silverware for small kids. It was really nice also that the guest house had the area where the kids could walk right into the water. So much to do in the area in terms of hiking, kayaking, touring wineries, or even just enjoying Traverse City and Suttons Bay. Even Sleeping Bear Dunes was less than 45 minutes away, and it was gorgeous also! Highly recommended!

First week of July

  • 4 of 5
My family of 12 stayed at Sarah's Retreat the first week of July. The pictures were excellent representations of the house. We were all very comfortable in our rooms and in the community areas. The sleeping porch was an excellent area for the kids to hang out and relax at night with a movie. However, it was not the best area for sleeping. Many bugs and spiders including spiders' eggs nest had to be removed from the futon bed. The kids loved the lawn area in front of the water. The view is spectacular from the house. The house is very well situated for convenient trips into Traverse City and the rest of Leelanau. The only other problem we experienced was that three lifts were in the water surrounding the dock. With the waves and slippery rocks in the same area as the lifts, it was a bit difficult for the children and some adults to make it around the lifts and get to the sandy area of the lake. I would highly recommend Sarah's Retreat to all. Lake Leelanau is gorgeous and this property is a wonderful location to experience all of the wonder of the TC area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback. We are moving the steps on the dock to make it easier for young children, and we are having the futon professionally cleaned. Our family used it the week before, and I did not notice the spiders. Sorry about that.

Our favorite family vacation ever!!!

  • 5 of 5
This house is in a perfect location on the lake, so to be close enough to Traverse City, yet private enough for our large family. We rented a boat and the location on the lake is prime, as the south side of the lake is large with very little traffic, perfect for all the water skiing we did. The house is very clean, well equipped, and the owners are very accommodating.

The only downfall is that we had to travel pretty far to get fuel for the boat. But other than that, our stay in Leland will stay in our hearts and memories forever!!!
