Spend your Northport Vacation at Sandhill -- one block off the bay and two blocks from beaches, marina, playground, coffee, dinner and shopping! This solid four bedroom Cape boasts hardwood floors, fresh paint, a GREAT front porch with wicker rockers, a HUGE yard for kids to play in, and a floral garden that blooms all summer. An easy walk to the Marina, Fourth of July Fireworks and weekly Music in the Park. So close, kids can go on their own for library books and ice cream! It's an easy walk to downtown shopping, Willowbrook Mill (weddings!) Barb's Bakery (cinnamon twists!) North End (breakfast!) and the Garage (killer BBQ!).
Huge open living area, with 'adult seating' area and 'TV/gaming seating' area -- 42' Sony Flatscreen, with wireless internet, DVD player, Netflix, (but, sorry! no cable television...). Bring your own video games! Plenty of board games, too. Gather around the giant oak refectory table and serving buffet; choose the antique oak pedestal table in the kitchen -- or take it outside on the picnic table or garden table with umbrella.
Downstairs master with a super comfy queen bed and full bath; upstairs choose from a king bed room, a sunny royal blue/green double twin room, or the Jungle Bunk Room -- popular with kids! New paint, new linens, new wall art -- all arriving daily! You will LOVE this place!
Super quiet in Northport -- and the stars seem VERY close on the 45th parallel....

We have have renovated and managed vacation homes in the Fourth Street area of Northport for many years. The Maples, Birches and Harbor House were popular seasonal rental properties for many families! Now, Sandhill continues this tradition.
My favorite comment from the guest books?
'I have been renting in Northern Michigan for 30 years, and your property is the first place I didn't feel I had to wash the silverware before using it!'
Northport's uncrowded beaches, bustling marina and summer festivals in the park make it a great summer get away. Swim or boat in crystal clear Grand Traverse Bay, or enjoy Lake Michigan! So laid back -- no need to comb your hair or paint your nails up here!
Cinnamon Twists at Barb's Bakery, viewing Beaver Island on a clear day from the top of Grand Traverse Light, hiking through the state park to the ultra private, glorious Lake Michigan beach at Cathead Bay, walking the trail at Kehl Lake (take your little kids, it's a great place to imagine the time when dinosaurs roamed the earth!) -- and of course, wine, shopping, reading, eating and napping! Rainy day? No worries -- movies are just 20 minutes away in Sutton's Bay!
Leelanau Vinters Wine Trail, Grand Traverse Lighthouse, Leelanau State Park, beach walking Lake Michigan, hunting Petoskey Stones, sunset views over Lake Michigan at Peterson Park, shopping in Fishtown (Leland) and in Sutton's Bay, many summer festivals (art, wine, jazz, chicken broil, fish fry, antique cars). Leelanau Sands Casino just 15 mins away.
