BEAUTIFUL LELAND HOME, WALKING DISTANCE TO DOWNTOWN & BEACH

Leland House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedroom, 5 Bathroom, 10 Sleeps

This recently renovated home is the perfect get-away for a single or multi-family vacation. Located 0.3 miles from a beautiful Lake Michigan beach (North Beach), and 0.4 miles from downtown Leland, this home will give you and your family the convenience and flexibility you desire on your vacation. Easily walk to shops, restaurants, bars, beaches, parks, and more.

We purchased this beautiful home in the summer of 2013, and have updated and renovated the home inside and out. We are only able to enjoy our home for a couple weeks each summer so we are making it available to responsible weekly renters who will care for it as we would.

Our house is 3600 sq ft, and comfortably sleeps 10. It has a large living space that can easily accommodate multiple families. The kitchen has been recently updated with all new appliances. The dining room comfortably seats 10 adults. Looking for a quiet moment on your vacation? Curl up in the library to read a book, escape to the den to check your email, or relax on the couch in the living room and watch a movie or enjoy a fire in the fire place. The house also has a screened porch, a fabulous private deck with a fire pit, and a bonus room with a foosball table in the basement.

The spacious master bedroom features a king-size bed, private bath, and a semi-private deck. Located upstairs are two bedrooms and one bathroom - one bedroom has a queen bed and the other bedroom has two twin beds, which can be combined to form a king-size bed. Above the 2-car garage is a guest suite, with two spacious rooms, a bathroom, and a private balcony. The bedroom has a queen-size bed, and is separated from the second room by sliding pocket doors. The second room can either be used as a living room, or an extra bedroom. It is equipped with a trundle day bed that can be pulled out to be two twin beds.

We live and work in Chicago, but love coming home to Leland where we were both raised.

Ellen & Jeff Keen purchased this house in 2013

Our home has a great layout for couples/families and the location is excellent for walking to everything that Leland has to offer.

BIG, CLEAN, AND CLOSE TO MANY ACTIVITIES/ATTRACTIONS

  • 4 of 5
House has great walking access to Leland and three beaches (two on Lake Michigan, one on Lake Leelanau), and is an easy drive to Sleeping Bear, Suttons Bay and Traverse City. Ideal if traveling with teenagers: we put four teenage boys in the room above the garage - they had their own full bathroom, and we didn't have to deal with their mess or noise. They can also entertain themselves walking into town or to the beaches.
House would also be good if traveling with an infant: either the master suite or the suite above the garage provides a retreat from the main part of the house. And the beach at Lake Leelanau is great for little kids - shallow, no big waves, and a dock to jump off of. (Dock was also convenient when we rented a boat and exchanged passengers.)
Back yard decking is private and comfortable. Saw many deer and a couple of foxes!
The owners and the property manager are extremely friendly and responsive. The only reason we didn't give this five stars is that it isn't water front, but it's a pretty close second.

HAD TO BE THE FIRST

  • 5 of 5
Prior to the children of dear friends of ours buying this place, who are also dear friends, to us and our children of their age - we owned it for twenty years. There is no description that can adequately describe what you will say is the best place you can stay within easy walking distance of everything Leland has to offer. Still residents of Leland (for twenty years) - we know - the house just got to big for us with everybody (as in kids) gone. There are great white pines at least eighty feet tall in the back yard that have to be over a hundred years old (makes the air smell great at times) whose 'pine talk' when the wind blows is majestic. A magical two tracker at the back end of the property will take you up, over, and down to one of the best beaches anywhere. (Friends from California and Florida will testify to this!) Sitting on the back porch at any time is a once in a lifetime experience - particularly at night with the sky full of stars - and more than a few shooting ones. It's private (very), yet has access to all the good things Leelanau County has to offer - which is endless. And having toured the place after 'the kids', as we call the new owners, fixed it up - you will be nothing but pleased... maybe even enchanted. You will want to come back.

Our home is located blocks from a beautiful Lake Michigan beach. Spend the day relaxing in the sun and playing in the water, or an evening watching the sunset and roasting marshmallows over a fire! Located less than a half a mile from downtown Leland, you will love exploring Historic Fishtown, browsing through local shops, or enjoying a cocktail or meal at one of the many scenic restaurants. If you are looking for an adventure, rent a jet ski or boat, spend a day hiking one of the hundreds of trails in the area, or visit the world-famous Sleeping Bear Dunes to find out why Leelanau County is consistently ranked as a top vacation destination!
