My husband and I have been using the cottage as our vacation home for the past twenty-five years waiting for the day we could retire permanently to Northport. That day arrived 2011 when we built our new home across the street from the cottage.

Peggy Cavanaugh purchased this chalet in 1985

We fell in love with this area in 1985 and have been vacationing here ever since then. There is so much to see and do in this very beautiful peninsula, walking, biking, wineries, casino, swimming, boating, kayaking to name a few. Spring, summer, fall all the season's offer a beautiful landscape in which to gaze.

Our cottage is located in a very private wooded setting where you can view the birds and wildlife in their natural setting.

Beautiful Fall Weekend at Hummingbird Cottage

We were looking for a relaxing cozy weekend to see the beautiful Michigan fall colors and found it atHummingbird Cottage. Owners Peggy andSteve were very welcoming and helpful. The cottage was clean andcomfortable just like in the photos. The deck was perfect for early morning coffee. The beach was a short walk or bike ride away. We enjoyed eating at The Garage in Northport. The whitefish sandwich and the pulled pork sandwich were our favorites. We had fun exploring the areas around Northport; the lighthouse, wineries, Leland, Omena, Suttons Bay. The shopping and views are wonderful! We hope togo back next year! Linda

We absolutely loved the cottage in the woods of Northport! Such a wonderful getaway and we particularly enjoyed our early morning walks in the neighborhood. Thanks so much to the owners as well for making everything easy and enjoyable. The cottage was very clean! We would love to return for an entire week next fall!

A wonderful place to stay!

I have stayed at this cabin twice now and both times had an absolutely perfect time! The cabin itself is great, I love the full kitchen and grill, as well as the large wraparound deck. One of my favorite things to do in the morning was sit outside and watch the many hummingbirds and other birds come to the feeders. I stayed both times with several friends, and the two bedrooms with 4 beds were great to accommodate us all. The lake is steps away and you have your choice of 2 beaches. The owner also provides water shoes and a kayak. There is also a tennis court and firepit at one of the beaches. There are several bikes at the cabin, and it's a wonderful short ride north up to the lighthouse, I highly recommend it! It's a great location that gets you far enough out of the city to enjoy the true "Up North" experience, but also close enough to where you can go into Northport, Omena, Sutton's Bay, Leland, Traverse City, or any of the other towns and wineries to explore. We enjoyed swimming at the beach, grilling in the evenings, and going into Traverse City to visit some breweries. The owners are incredibly generous and accommodating, and we absolutely love coming here. We plan on coming back next year for sure!
