FAMILY FRIENDLY, PRIVATE, BEAUTIFUL LAKEFRONT HOME, LEELANAU COUNTY

Maple City House Rental Photos and Description

Charming & Comfortable Lighthouse Inspired 3 bedroom Lakefront home

Come visit our peaceful, fun and family friendly retreat on Lime Lake in stunning Leelanau County, Michigan. Recently voted one of the world's most beautiful places, Leelanau County is known for its idyllic countryside, lakes, beaches, roadside fruit stands and beautiful scenery.

We are pleased to welcome you to our waterfront, Lighthouse inspired home. Nestled at the end of a private road on emerald green Lime Lake, the water is gin clear with depths suitable for wading and swimming (12-24 inches). The water reaches into the high 70 degree temperatures in July and August. Bring your water toys or boat and enjoy the fishing, tubing, skiing or a sunset cruise. Or relax in the sun, read and soak up the sounds of Michigan. We have a newly installed dock with a 12 x 10 foot platform at the end. There is a deck at the house that faces the lake and a firepit by the water's edge to roast marshmallows or sit by as you view the spectacular stars.

The house is extremely comfortable with a great room, open kitchen and dining area, family room loft and 3 bedrooms (King, Queen and 2 Twin over Full bunks). You can even view most of Lime Lake (and beyond) from our very own look out tower. We have two bathrooms (shower upstairs, tub/shower down) - one in the master suite upstairs and one shared downstairs.

Near miles of pristine Lake Michigan beaches on the National Lakeshore and situated almost halfway between Leland and Glen Arbor Michigan (off M-22), our home is the perfect spot for your family's vacation. We are surrounded by Sleeping Bear National Park with hiking trails, tennis, and skiing/snowmobiling in the winter months. If you are a golfer, enjoy the Manitou Passage Golf Club, an Arnold Palmer course, that is only 1/2 mile from the house.

It is a quick 25-30 minutes to Traverse City (and TC airport) where you can shop, take a sail on a Tall Ship, see a movie, attend one of its many summer festivals, have dinner or simply stroll along its main street. The Interlochen Academy for the Arts with its world renowned music and theater performances is also nearby. Michigan is becoming well known for its wineries, with more than two dozen local wineries nearby.

You will not run out of ways to relax or things to do at our special retreat.

We spent a fun and relaxing week at this Lime Lake place. It was private, but really quite convenient. It was well appointed and we had everything and more to feel immedeately at home. There was plenty of room for our family.

Perfect in Every Way

Our family enjoyed an amazing vacation on Lime Lake in this gorgeous home. It was beautifully appointed and had everything we needed for everyone -- aged 6 to 76! The picturesque lake was shallow by the shore (great for our kids), deep in the middle, and perfect for kayaking; Crystal River Outfitters in Glen Arbor offered free drop-off and pick-up. We saw pontoon boats, fishing boats, and jet skis on the lake as well -- so that seems to be an option for folks interested in faster boat travel! We also swam and enjoyed floating around on the beach toys/rafts provided. S'mores around the lakeside fire pit in the evening. Perfect for kids and adults of all ages. We were close to everything we wanted to do at Sleeping Bear Dunes -- the Dune Climb, hiking, beaches, biking the Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail, golfing at various courses. Everything seemed to be within a 15-25 minute drive. Easily worth it for this gorgeous, quiet location. Owner could not have been nicer or more helpful. This cottage is a no-brainer.... Best rental cottage ever!

Could not ask for a better vacation house. Gorgeous house, spacious and comfortable, every detail covered. Secluded yet close to everything. Gorgeous sunsets, beautiful lake, perfect for kids -- water is shallow out to almost 100 yards. Bring a boat if you have one, or rent one in advance. Would absolutely recommend to anyone!

My family and I enjoyed a wonderfully relaxing time here. The lakeside home is tucked away at the end of a dirt road, offering a secluded place to get away from it all (but still close to everything Leelanau County and Traverse City has to offer.) The home is beautiful and well-kept. It comfortably sleeps 10. The lake is gin clear and boat traffic is at a minimum. Only one drawback...many geese leave their droppings on the lawn. The owner did warn us of swimmer's itch, but that's very common in the area's inland lakes. Overall, a wonderful experience.

Owner's Response: Thank for your positive words. To address two points you raised. 1 - we will be investing in additional "predator decoys" to scare off those pesky waterfowl. 2 - Swimmer's itch is a friendly "heads up" to guests so they are better safe than sorry...but it is rare. Thanks again.
