CATHEAD BAY IN NORTHPORT MI. - DIRECT SAND BEACH RETREAT

Northport Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cathead Bay Sand Castle sits on the shore of Lake Michigan and is in a private community on Cathead Bay, one of the best kept secrets of Northern Michigan. We are literally on the tip of the Leelanau Peninsula. The light house is five minutes away.

The house is surrounded by a nature preserve and sits at the foot of the Leelanau State Park Dunes. You can cross the road and take a hike up the dunes and usually you will have them all to your self, because the public has to park miles away and hike in to get to them.

The beach is pristine with fine, sugary sand and not rocky like the Grand Traverse Bay side can be and it is sandy as far out into the lake as you can walk. This beach seems almost tropical and you can walk the shore for miles. If you head south you will end up, after the last house, in an area of protected lake shore that is also part of Leelanau State Park.

This house feels more like a colorful ocean beach house than a lake house. There is a fire pit by the beach and another up near the house. We have two kayaks that you are welcome to use.

Since buying the house we have been sprucing it up a bit. Mostly painting to freshen it up. The furnishings will be all new. We have other plans too!

The house is very cleverly designed. Closing the huge pocket doors between the Kitchen and Living Room creates a giant Master Suite, since the master bedroom w/full bath is off of the living room. At night there is great privacy from the other bedrooms which are towards the front of the house near the front sitting room.

There is another full bathroom in the hall near the two bedrooms that has a walk in tiled shower. The master bathroom has a large tub with shower.

The Bunkhouse next to the house has two full sized mattress bunk beds and a couch and TV. It is a big a hit with kids and also allows parents to get some quiet time.

The bed sizes are as follows:

Master-Queen, Sleeps two

Bedroom-Full/Queen, sleeps two

Bedroom-1 twin size bunk bed, sleeps two and 1 twin bed, sleeps one.

Bunkhouse(Separate from house) two full size bunk beds. Can sleep up to 8

Bath: One full with walk in shower

One full with large tub/shower

All of the bedrooms look out to the dunes and the sitting room, kitchen and living room all have a great view of the lake.

The house has wifi and cable, with a tv in the living room of main house and one in the bunk house.

The town of Northport is about nine minutes down the road and it has a great grocery store and several restaurants and bars. You can be in Leland with the quaint shops of Fishtown and Suttons Bay with all of it’s shops and restaurants is roughly twenty minutes. If gambling is your thing, there is the Leelanau Sands Casino in Peshawbestown, which is a little north of Sutton’s Bay. The “Big Town” of Traverse City is about forty five minutes south and so is Glen Arbor home of my favorite coffee ever Leelanau Coffee Roasters and for everything cherry there is Cherry Republic. The Leelanau Peninsula is home to several wineries, including one owned by Madonna’s parents, the Ciccone Vineyard and Winery.

The house faces west, so you will see some of the most amazing sunsets you have ever seen. At night there is no city light pollution so the sky is loaded with stars.

Whether you want to sit and relax all day by the beach, swim, kayak, go off exploring the many hiking trails in the area, check out the nearby towns, take a bike ride, hit the casino, plus so much more, we think you will be glad you chose Cathead Bay Sand Castle.

MARVELOUS BEACH STAY

  • 5 of 5
This was my first experience searching for and renting a house for a family summer vacation. The photos on the website were very accurate. Loved the bright colors of each room. All the windows look out onto the beautiful beach. The master suite was very nice and comfortable. The house was well equipped with everything needed for a great stay. Loved the kitchen island so the kids could sit and eat or chat while we cooked. The sandy patio area was perfect for the kids to play as well as the beach. Right across the road from the house are beautiful dunes. All the kids loved to explore and climb them. We loved exploring Northport. Cute shops, convenient grocery, and lovely family restaurant with bowling for kids called Tuckers. Leland was another stop and we explored. Tandem Cider for a great hard cider tasting. The only improvement could be heat in the bunk house. The week we were there was chilly at night and those sleeping in the bunkhouse came inside the main house due to cold. Would not be an issue on hot days/nights. Also, Connie, from Leelanau Chalets, was very helpful. She answered all questions. Highly recommend a stay here!
