This beautiful and spacious home sits on a large lot located directly on Lake Leelanau. Situated on a private road it is a peaceful and a safe haven for adults and children alike. The lake has a sandy bottom, it's clean and shallow. Enjoy a day of swimming and sunbathing or play in the spacious backyard. Minutes away you'll find the town of Lake Leelanau, Leland (Fish town) and Traverse City.
As I was growing up my parents always rented a home on Lake Leelanau. When I had a family of my own I was fortunate enough to buy a house and share it with my children. I've had many happy memories here and would like all my guests to do the same.
Angela purchased this house in 1999
Our home is very clean, inviting, spacious and comfortable. It is children friendly, situated on a private street it is very safe and a lot of fun. The house is situated on a big lot that extends about 600 feet from the water.
The water views, gardens and solemn retreat are just some of the unique benefits of the house. Don't forget you're just minutes away from Lake Michigan, The Sand Dunes, hiking and biking.
The date that we rented is not exactly correct, but I needed to leave our input. The house and the lake are lovely, just as advertised. I know it lists "new owners" but I highly doubt that.
I knew we should have had the owners walk through when we left, but we have never had an issue before. Weeks later when I asked for the deposit, I got a response that we had left scratches on the floor... underneath the rug... at the dinning room table we never used. We also left "crumbs" in glasses the cupboards that required cleaning. It was very odd when we got there, because the owner met us there and we walked all around, showing us the light switches.
Also, the owners stay above the garage on the other side of the road. we were in the back mostly, so it seemed okay, but a little odd.
Like other reviews, threaten legal action, and got a very nasty reply. But, in the end, it was just too much of a hassle.
So, the house and the lake are wonderful. You are unlikely to get your deposit back. I think it would be better if they just charged you that amount rather than play games and leave a negative feeling at the end of your vacation.
Spacious home, great location, sandy beach and a nice yard for kids to play in!!! The lake has knee deep water and a sandy bottom for over 100 yards out. You can swim, catch fish or relax directly off the dock. We have rented in this area for several years and have always enjoyed ourselves. Rent or bring your boat to really take advantage of this location.
After reading the first review I was hesitant to rent from this owner but thought I would give them the benefit of the doubt. It was a mistake as I have not yet received my deposit back (contract says within a week) and have been accused of doing something to the upstairs french door so that it can't be opened. We also tried opening that door but couldn't so just kept it closed - figured we weren't doing something right since it had a child proof lock on it. Now being told we have to pay for a new door if her husband can't get it open. Supposedly a locksmith was called and couldn't get it open but we have yet to receive any proof that this is true. We will be taking legal action if we don't receive our deposit back.
We did have a very nice time. It is a spacious home and it was so nice that we could each have our own private room and comfortable beds. We went to Sleeping Bear Dunes, downtown Traverse City, and the Casino. Tried to get those elusive Walleyes but only got one. Heard that the fish stopped biting just before we got there - but still enjoyed trying. We had rented a pontoon also and it was nice to take a ride around the lake and stop at a sandbar to play. Also went thru the narrows to North Lake Leelanau but wished we had more time to take a boat trip to Leeland - did get there by car though. Lake Leelanau has always been my late husband and I's favorite place to stay. He passed away in March so this was a special trip for the children and I to visit one of his favorite fishing spots and spend some time remembering all the good times we had together.
the place is wonderful. very clean. perfect location and yard space for a family with small children. we did have a difficult experience with the owner, however. She claims we brought a cat, and that cat hair and food was scatters all over the place. not at all true. regardless she deducted from our deposit.
