Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Bill and Carole,



We are a family from California and we have fallen in love with your cottage and the "Up North" lifestyle.... We enjoyed paddle boat rides, bonfires, frog catching, walks, trips to Sutton's Bay, Traverse City, and lots of "lake gazing". Your home is beautiful, warm, and inviting. We look forward to coming back again. Have a wonderful winter. Thanks again.

Tranquil and Warm

  • 5 of 5
I loved every minute of my stay at magical Lilla Cotta Bay. Everything was even better than I had dreamed -- lovely decor, privacy, amazing views, and the warmest welcome possible. When I got to the cottage the windows were open to capture soft breezes, everything was immaculate, there was a bag of goodies and wine on the table, and Grand Traverse Bay was shimmering out back. Wow! I spent the sunny days floating in the bay and exploring the Leelanau Peninsula. I'd especially recommend Dog Eared Books in Northport (I also loved watching the boats dock in the Northport marina), the 45th Parallel Cafe in Suttons Bay, and the Secret Garden Gallery in Empire. I spent cloudy days reading in the cottage and on the dock -- so peaceful. Thank you, Bill and Carol, for sharing your lovely retreat. You've provided everything necessary to make visitors (including singles) feel safe, comfortable, and special. I hope I get to return soon and would love to see Northport in the fall!

Our Charming Northport Stay!

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed beautiful views of Grand Traverse Bay from Lilla Cotta. Too, the cottage is in a perfect location from which to explore all the attractions that the Leelanau Peninsula offers. Northport itself has quite the charming main street center, all within walking distance. Very nice! Note: if you want to swim, it's best to use the beaches by the Marina - just a short walk away. The lake bed here is very rocky and you'll need water shoes to wade and to launch the paddleboat.

Quiet, relaxing, pleasant

  • 5 of 5
We are planning our fifth consecutive springtime stay at Lilla Cotta for our early May wedding anniversary. There are few better spots to relax, unwind and celebrate than at Lilla Cotta. So many incredible memories - stunning sunrises, mated swans out in the bay, dinner at the dining room table while listening to Interlochen Public Radio. Lilla Cotta is a marvelous place to do many things - take a nap in the gloriously comfortable bed, curl up in the living room with a book or a stack of magazines you've been meaning to catch up on, or as the starting point for a walk into town. It's a special place for us, and we thank Bill and Carole for being the perfect hosts.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review, Dawn and Steve - Knowing that you formerly camped at the State Park in early May, we know how much more comfortable Lilla Cotta is in comparison. We are glad you agree and come back year after year.

Resort feel to a charming cottaqe

  • 5 of 5
Bill and Carole,
Our stay at your cottage was so relaxing with time to read and bike around the Leelanau Peninsula. You have thought of everything to make your guests comfortable from the furnishings to the delightful decorations throughout. It was a pleasure to sit in the wicker chairs and take in the view with coffee in the morning; or sit on the dock to enjoy the sun with our books. Lila Cotta is not a standard cottage rental. It has more of a resort feel with all its amenities ready to make your vacation comfortable and filled with summer memories.

Owner's Response: Steve and Kathleen - So glad you enjoyed your visit to Lilla Cotta. She's not big, but has a huge view! The picture you sent with you on the dock with a book in hand says it all. Look forward to having you return next year!book
