UNIQUE CABIN WITH PRIVATE BEACH ON LAKE MICHIGAN

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.

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.

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!

If you are looking for heaven, then this is the place. We had such a relaxing time. The view was spectacular and water refreshing. Very secluded place, private, and peaceful. Our family was able to really reconnect. No cell or internet, but that was fine with us.(Isn't that what vacation is all about). We would recommend this place to anyone.

AMAZING Cabin on Lake Michigan!

We had a fabulous week at this property. The cabin is adorable, clean as a whistle with everything you need good to go! It allowed us to totally relax, unwind and be off the grid and yet only 10 minutes away from Northport.

We recommend stopping at The Garage Bar & Grill in Northport and picking up your food to go for your 1st night so you can arrive, unpack and sit out on the deck and enjoy the view! The owners greeted us as we arrived and couldn't have been nicer!!

The beach is completely pristine-sandy as can be! We highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a Lake Michigan oasis.

Relaxing Week @ Cathead Bay

The week was great!!! Water was super clear and flat the first few days, so kayaking was wonderful on the bay. Views of sunsets, the islands, and the lake were fantastic. Walking the beach, collecting Petoskey Stones was a lot of fun and exercise. The proximity to all the wineries and shopping in the area was a treat. The house was very unique and quaint. This is a great place for a couple or small family.

Is As Amazing As Advertised

This place really is as awesome as it seems. It's secluded and "off the grid", but at the same time offers really easy access to Northport and other forms of civilization. Really a perfect place to unplug and relax on the beach without any distractions. The beach, the views, and the sunsets really are something not to be missed.

Stopping just short of actually doing the grocery shopping for us, our hosts had the place stocked with everything we could possibly need when we arrived. Well organized and super clean, we had no worries on not having what we needed.

Northport's just a short hop away, and has plenty of free wifi for internet junkies like us that can't quite seem to cut the cord. Definitely recommend hitting up The Garage for their sweet potato chips, and Barb's Bakery for some of the best old fashioned donuts we've had.

We definitely plan on coming back.

Our thanks to our hosts, Kevin, Cynthia and Hanna. We were greeted with friendly, smiling faces and put at ease immediately with their eager to help but easy going attitude. The site was idyllic on Lake Michigan's sandy, private beach and the cabin was just the right size for the 2 of us. Perfect place for a getaway for a couple to chill or a small family to rejuvenate bonding away from work, school and electronic distractions. We will be back for sure.
