Northport Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 1 Bath with full kitchen/laundry and stunning lake view.

This unique two bedroom cabin is like nothing you've ever seen or stayed at before. Located in the woods at the tip of Leelanau County, it lies on the shores of beautiful Cathead Bay - a natural, pristine, sandy bay with shallow water for great swimming, kayaking, and water sports. This is the getaway location with access to an inland lake for fishing, bird watching, and hiking. Miles of uninterrupted beach makes for pleasant walks searching for Petoskey stones or enjoying the ever changing shoreline, natural dunes, and area wildlife.

This distinctive cabin sleeps 4 with two Queen Beds. It includes a fire-pit, horseshoes, gas-grill, and an open deck that allows for awesome sunrises, sunsets, and star-gazing. Don't let your fantastic 'Up North' experience end with summer. This area is well known for its spectacular Fall Color Tour. You can enjoy being in the center of the amazing color changes with biking, golfing, hiking and wine tasting.

The Cabin at Cathead Bay is a place to take you 'Off The Grid' and enjoy a peaceful, affordable get away.

Why Cynthia Jackson chose Northport

This lakefront property was purchased in the early 1900's by the Bradley family and passed down to the current owner. The cabin was started in 1968 and became a summer working project for the entire family.

What makes this cabin unique

Clear days provide views of both North and South Fox Islands. Mackinac sailboats can be seen during the annual race. Not uncommon for sailboats to anchor in the bay overnight. Light from the Lighthouse can be seen at night along with excellent star gazing. This property has the best section of beach on Cathead Bay!

The Best Kept Secret

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week in this charming cozy cabin. The cabin was very clean and well maintained. I was very happy that the kitchen was very well equipped, had everything I needed for nice meals since I enjoy cooking. I wished a picnic table or a small outdoor dining set were there on the deck so we could eat outside.
The beach is just gorgeous! The water is crystal clear and sandy and not too deep for a long way out, it is great for swimming. First 2 days were perfect last of summer days, we spent most of our time at the beach. Then the storm came, the wind blew so hard that I almost could not shut the door ! The power was cut off for a whole night. I was concerned that we might not be able to stay for a whole week without having any electricity but fortunately the lights came back on the following morning. It was scary but exciting.
We tried to watch DVDs we brought from home for the cold nights but unfortunately we could not figure out how to turn the sound on the TV. It should be a simple matter but some reason there was no sound no matter what we tried, oh well, it was not a big deal. We had nice music, internet (!!), a bottle of wine and cozy fire of wood burning stove !
It was a exciting and at the same time very relaxing week. We enjoyed our stay so much, definitely would like to come back next year ! I recommend this cabin with very high marks but really want it to be a best kept secret in Leelanau Peninsular.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5
This place is a gem. It was as neat as a pin and I was impressed with the updated (new?) carpeting and wood flooring. My son and husband have allergies and renting cute places is risky because there is always the potential for dust, etc. Not at this one! It's closets are clean and empty and all drawers and storage areas are clear. The view is phenomenal and we all commented on how relaxed we felt. The water was high this year so beach walking was a challenge-- but we didn't need to! We enjoyed walking the wooded trails near the house and looking at the water. Within a mile there is a stunning Lake Michigan beach that my son and husband loved discovering. Lots to do without feeling too busy made this place perfect. An added highlight for us was being there at peak cherry season and getting to see the cherry pickers at work.. an excitement for our three year-old (and us). It felt safe and well-equipped for our three year-old and I would recommend this to everybody- just don't steal the good weeks before we can reserve again!!!

A lovely getaway

  • 5 of 5
Our family truly enjoyed spending time at this great Lake Michigan cabin. The location is private and quite spectacular on Cathead Bay. The cabin was clean, cozy and charming, and it had all of the materials we needed for a comfortable and easy stay. Northport is close enough for convenient access to shopping, etc., but far enough that we felt like we were really getting away from it all.

Cant beat the View

  • 4 of 5
I really liked the location of this place. The view is unbeatable. I liked the beach a lot as well. It is about a 3/4 miles if that to the east for the state park. We made the walk many times and found many stones. Peterson Park is right around the corner along with Christmas cove. One down fall was the mosquitoes but not the owners fault. Cabin could use a full size fridge. I came with me wife and two children. I would consider rerenting but at a later date without the kids. Cynthia was easy to deal with.

Perfect Leelanau Vacation

  • 5 of 5
This place was exactly what my family and I were searching for when visiting Northern Michigan. The cottage has an amazing view of the lake as you watch freighters head across the water and loons swim in the bay. We found petoskey stones all down the beach and every night we had either a fire in the fire ring outside or the stove inside. This is really an awesome gem of a cottage with so many cool attractions up and down leelanau county. We stayed here with our boys age 8 and 5 and our toddler daughter and they all had a great time playing in the sand and exlporing the dunes.
