Northport Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

***** Sale on the nights of May 26, 27, 28, 29, & 30, 2014! Only $79.00, per night ($395.00, total), for this beautiful spring time of year. Come see the trees begin to leaf-out, leeks cover the forest floor, and the trillium may be out, too. It is a great time to be 'up north'. *****

Are you looking for a quiet hide-away in the deep woods of northern Michigan? A place where the two of you can just relax and get re-acquainted? The 'Tree House' is a unique, studio apartment that has what it takes for a great, couples, vacation. It has everything you need to enjoy life for awhile: King-Sized, Temper-Pedic style, memory foam, bed; cozy living room and kitchenette; shower; toilet; 32' high definition TV + DirecTV with all the movie channels; air conditioning; and a large deck in the tree canopy.

You are just minutes away from all that Michigan's 'Little Finger' (Leelanau County) has to offer. Close to swimming beaches, wine tasting, gambling, shopping, boating, and state parks. The Tree House is located five miles north of Northport, in 42 acres of cool, quiet, mature, Beech-Maple forest. Your own paradise... Hike miles of nature trails and watch the whitetail deer as they graze; or just relax and read a book, on your deck, while the leaves whisper to you.

Leelanau peninsula is a cyclists paradise, too! A destination for both bicyclists and motorcyclists alike! Also, near by, are beautiful inland lakes to canoe or kayak. Loons, eagles, otters, and other wildlife are waiting your viewing pleasure. Bring all the 'toys' up north and have a good time!

Sit on the beach, at the lighthouse, and watch a summer sunset over Lake Michigan. Go wine tasting at one of Leelanau's many wineries. Swim in Lake Michigan's cool waters at Christmas Cove. Nature at its finest in Michigan's Water Wonderland. A 'pick me up' for your soul. Ahhh... peace and tranquility.

Tom & Kathy are retired from careers in high school teaching and school social work in 2005. We now enjoy Bend, Oregon and Ruidoso, New Mexico, in the winter; and Northport, Michigan, in the summer. It is our pleasure to share our 'little piece of, Leelanau County, heaven', with our guests. When you stay at the Tree House you are family, too!

Tom or Kathy Larkin purchased this studio in 1990

Even though Tom was born and raised in Michigan, we first came to Northport when Tom's brother-in-law became the pastor of the Northport Trinity Church. This was in the early 1970's. Then Tom's parents bought the Captain's Cottage, in Northport, and his sister built a cottage in Omena. We were last, in the family, to build a home 'up north' (1995). We've been enjoying our forest home ever since.

This unique area of the Leelanau Peninsula is one of the most beautiful places we have ever lived. We have 42 acres of mature hardwood forest to roam, and we adjoin hundreds of acres of state land to our west. Very private. We are located close to many outdoor activities (hiking, biking, swimming, boating, scenery, etc.) Also, there are numerous shops, wineries, casinos, and indoor activities between Northport and Traverse City. What a great place to just 'unwind'.

Northport weekend

The beautiful wooded and quiet location was perfectly situated for exploration of the Leelanau Peninsula. We explored five beautiful beaches in 3 days, enjoyed the harbor towns of Northport, Sutton's Bay, and Leland, and were impressed with the number of wineries and orchards in the area. The studio-size "Tree House" was the right size for us - comfortable, clean, and well appointed. The owners were accommodating and communicated well with us through the whole rental process. We highly recommend it to you!

Fun time Up North late in the summer season

My fiancé and I and our 2 corgis spent most of a week in the Treehouse the week after Labor Day and had a great time. Tom was there to greet and familiarize us with the Treehouse and the surrounding area, then gave us some much appreciated privacy the rest of our stay.
While the Treehouse itself is a bit "cozy", it was perfect for our needs. While my fiancé slept in, I was able to bike down to town and pick up breakfast at the grocery store and bakery. Then we would make breakfast and head out with the dogs for sightseeing (Leland's Fish Town or Sleeping Bear Dunes), wine/beer/cider tasting, or simply walking on the beach (Sutton's Bay proved particularly agreeable to the corgis due to the lack of waves). Then we returned at night to make dinner and chill. Because it was after Labor Day, we usually had the beaches to ourselves.
During our stay the outdoor temperature dropped about 20 degrees overnight. Upon our return that night, we found that Tom had left an electric radiator with a note at the end of the stairs. While we didn't end up using it, it was much appreciated.
We all had a great time and are looking forward to returning.

Restful Location

A wonderful place to hide in the tree tops! Very quiet with everything you need, comfortable and very clean. The deck is great for sun or shade. Tom and Kathy were helpful with directions and considerate hosts. A great value for the money. A car is necessary but beaches, bakery and grocery not far away. A return visit is a must for me. Thanks for sharing your wonderful cabin!

Perfect Honeymoon Location!

  • Submitted: Aug 12, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Tree House. It was the perfect, secluded spot for a honeymoon - and it was close to local attractions when we wanted to explore! Tom and Kathy are great hosts who made sure our stay was comfortable and enjoyable, while also respecting our privacy too. We can't wait to return celebrate anniversaries!
Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review! We strive to be the best place for newlyweds to have a memorable beginning of their lives, together. After the stress of a wedding, the Tree House is the perfect place to relax and "unwind". We have had five sets of honeymooners, this year, and hope that more newlyweds will take advantage of our unique (& very private) studio apartment in the woods. Thanks again, and best of luck in that adventure called "Marriage"! -Tom & Kathy-

This was the most relaxing and vacation I think I have ever had, and, the first "real" vacation since we were married in 2009! The "Tree House" is the perfect size, the grounds filled with nature sounds and the beauty of birds and deer. Our dog loved every minute of exploring on your property and laying in sun spots on the deck. We appreciate all your hospitality, it certainly gave us the "base home" to explore Leelanau Penninsula, which, is an amazing example of God's handiwork! From the Lighthouse, Sleeping Bear Dunes, Peterson Park, Sunsets and Petoskey searching at Christmas Cove to Suttons Bay and Traverse City (and everything in between). It is like a place where time stood still.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Jamey & Peggy! It was great having you come to the Tree House and "get away from it all". We hope that we will see you again next year! -Tom & Kathy-
