We, Carol and Jim Ashmore are excited to be opening our home to you. Carol was born and raised in Traverse City while I came from Stockbridge. Returning to Leelanau County has always been a dream for us.

Jim Ashmore purchased this house in 2012

Our roots in this area go back to early 1900's when Carol's mother was born in Northport. This are with it beautiful natural attractions has always been a magnet for us. We enjoy walking the many beaches and looking for petosky stone, riding our bikes and sometimes just going for a ride.

We're sure you will enjoy the morning sun streaming in the living room window and the evening sun warming the back yard patio. Within walking distance you will find three very different places to eat, a distillery, a winery, a coffee shop and a pastry shop. Sutton's Bay and Leeland are within 5 miles and Traverse City is 20 miles. Perhaps, a trip to the National Lakeshore in Glenn Arbor or the nearby Casino. And of course the many places and activities on local water sites.

big omission

  • Submitted: Aug 8, 2013

The owners should disclose that this is not a single-family residence. We were shocked to learn, not from the owners' admission but by our own discovery, that there is an occupied living area (separate entrance) in the basement, making it more of a duplex than a single-family residence. The fact that the owners never disclosed this information was unsettling; they explained nearly everything else about the house. And there were some inconveniences that came along with the duplex-style living situation. Though the house is promoted as non-smoking, we could smell the basement residents' cigarette smoke (presumably through the house duct work). We could also hear talking and music (though not rowdy), often late at night. This is why my rating is 3/5 stars.

Otherwise, the house is clean, well-stocked, and cozy. The location is a great home-base for activities around Leelanau county. The owners, who met us upon arrival, were very nice, so nice that it is with some hesitation that I write the negative contents of this review. But I felt mislead that this was going to be a single-family residence, and I think the fact that it is a dual-family residence should be noted for future renters. It was upsetting that such an important fact about the house was left out of all description and discussion.
Owner's Response: Heather,
We are very sorry that you felt slighted about your visit. Our intentions were never to keep our having a renter hidden from our Against the Wind guests. We didn't feel it was an issue. Harry, the contractor who did the finish work on our home, is living in the downstairs apartment. Harry only smokes outside. (Perhaps the smoke came in through an open window?) We have spoken to him about the music. We are glad that, in spite of these two issues, you were able to enjoy your stay in Leelanau County.

To our future guests:
If any problems arise during your stay in our home, please alert us immediately. We will address any issues you might have right away.

The downstairs apartment has a separate driveway to a private entrance. We have taken great pains to sound proof the apartment.

Beginning in September, we will have a new renter - a 76 year old grandmother who doesn't like loud music. :-)

Here are some comments from other guests at Against the Wind:

charming weekend rental

We had a wonderful weekend here. Against the Wind was clean, comfortable, full of amenities, and well-maintained. And the owners were so friendly and helpful. Lake Leelanau is a great spot - centrally located and close to a lot of beautiful beaches, restaurants, and activities. We'll definitely be back.

Our Home Away From Home

My family and I rented this property for a long weekend getaway. Before arriving to the rental, the owner called to see how old our daughter was and what books she might like to read. Upon our arrival, the owners took us on a tour through the house, went through binders that they had created for their guests on things to do in the area and a little book about their home. They pointed out a shelf that they had put books on for my 18 month old to read and look through. The house was decorated beautifully and was so cozy! They had wine that they told us we were able to drink if we'd like, if we drank more than 1 bottle they asked we please replace it (it's only fair!) They also had the house stocked with everything you could need- extra toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, bodywash, laundry detergent/softener for your clothes if you needed to use their washer and dryer, pots/pans/grill, etc! They were so friendly and immediately likeable. The home was immaculate and and so charming! It is also centrally located to everything in the area, whether it's a trip to Suttons Bay, Leland, Glen Arbor or Northport, every thing was between 15-20 minutes away. The little town of Lake Leelanau was also charming. It had a a great organic restaurant to grab a quick sandwich, the new vodka distillery, Dick's Pour House which had great burgers and pizza, as well as a very nice restaurant Bella Fortuna which we will go to on our next trip! The beach in Suttons Bay was only about a 5 minute drive and was absolutely gorgeous. My family had an amazing time there (all 6 of us!) The pull out couch was actually very comfortable. We had cable, internet and all the comforts of home. We spent 4 amazing days here and will be hopefully coming back this fall to look for our own piece of heaven to buy in the area!

Great house ! Great location !

  • Submitted: Jul 20, 2013

We arrived on a Sunday evening to be greeted by the owners of the home. Jim and Carol went over the house with us and gave us the grand tour. The house has just been renovated and was done with great taste. Our group consisted of my wife and our 15 month old and my inlaws. The 2 bedrooms are large and have plenty of dresser space for our group. The rest of the house was comfortable and felt like "home" during our vacation. Everything is brand new and top notch. The only reason I held back a star is of not knowing prior of the basement apartment and the residual noise from the tenants u set us. They are not loud but you can hear them a little. It would not make me hesitate to rent this home again.

The location could not be better, just a block off the main drag through lake leelanau. With a winery, bakery, restaurant, grocery and coffee shop all within a 5 minute walk. The house is in the middle of the peninsula so wineries and tourist towns are easily accessible.

We had a great stay and gracious hosts. The home was better stocked than any vrbo home we have had before ( at least a dozen others ) and it is a great place to spend your time.
