Enjoy a relaxing get-a-way at the water's edge at the Porthouse. Wake to a lovely sunrise and water lapping at the shore. With 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms plus a convertible sofabed in the living room, the cottage sleeps 6 comfortably. There is a full kitchen, dining room, sun room, living room and small utility with washer and dryer. It's great to walk the beach in search of beautiful stones, especially the petoskey stone. The water is wonderful for swimming and other water activities. Water shoes are recommended for comfort. The Porthouse has a waterside deck with table and chairs, gas grill and shoreside fire pit. The cottage is located in Cherry Homes Subdivision 6 miles north of Northport. There are 4 parks for residential use and hiking trails as well. Dining establishments in all price ranges are available in the surrounding area including Northport, Leland, Suttons Bay, Glen Arbor and Traverse City. There is also a grocery store minutes away.

We enjoy the beachfront, swimming, finding new stones, sipping wine on the deck watching the boats go by. We also enjoy seeing the occasional deer that make their way to the water. The sound of the water is calming, with the gentle waves lapping on the shore. It's fun to go to Northport for other family outings.
