Built in 1996, this 2300 square foot Lake Leelanau cottage offers 100 feet of private frontage directly on the lake. Lake Leelanau is a 23 mile long, all-sports lake with crystal clear water, natural sandbars, and excellent walleye and smallmouth fishing.
'Merriweather' is located 30 feet from the water's edge with a greenspace that offers lots of natural privacy and attracts an assortment of birds. The lakefront area features a hard sand bottom with shallow water for wading and swimming.
A 75-foot aluminum dock has two 8-foot by 10-foot platforms - one at each end of the dock - which are great for viewing and participating in lake activities. Use of a 14-foot aluminum rowboat, canoe, kayak, oars and life preservers is included.
Sleeping areas, each with a full bath with a tub and/or shower, are on three levels of living. The master bedroom on the main level has a king bed and an ensuite bathroom. The upstairs level has one bedroom with a queen bed and trundle beds, and a separate loft with a double-sized futon. The upstairs level bedroom and loft share a bathroom with a shower. The basement has a bedroom with a queen bed and twin bunks. A bonus room in the walk-out basement has two twin beds, a sofa, and a kitchen table and chairs. The two rooms share a full bath.
The main floor has a fully equipped kitchen with snack bar. The open great room and dining room have sliding glass doors leading to the wrap-around deck which faces the lake.
Air conditioning was added in 2013.
