There have been numerous updates throughout the past couple of seasons! The entire main floor hardwood floors have been replaced with a beautiful oak. The kitchen counters have been upgraded to granite. The bath floors have been upgraded to ceramic tile. We have replaced all the appliances in the kitchen to stainless finishes. Also new is the addition of an upper-level deck added off of the master bedroom, replacing a small roof that used to be off the master. The wooden walkways take you all the way to the beach! We want our home to be the best rental available!
As I write this, February 2015, the upstairs bath, adjacent to the master bedroom, is going through a renovation. We are adding a window and the shower will be a custom tiled shower, larger than we had, to better serve our guests!
Situated right on Cathead Bay (Lake Michigan) facing west, this beautiful family friendly beach house features four bedrooms and two baths. One bedroom and one bath are on the first floor for those not wishing to use stairs. The wide deck allows for unbelievable Lake Michigan sunset views over North Manitou, North Fox and South Fox Islands. Lots of deck furniture, and part of the lower deck is covered so you can escape the sun if you wish. This home is impeccably maintained.
The beach house is located near the tip of the beautiful Leelanau Peninsula. A nice walk to the Grand Traverse Lighthouse, and a short drive to unique shopping and dining in the villages of Leland, Suttons Bay, Omena, and Northport. Casino is about 30 minutes away. Traverse City is about a 45 minute drive.
A fantastic setting with state dunes land surrounding the homes on this beach. The dunes offer great hiking opportunities with unbelievable views from the top. The kids will love the dunes! Private beach is pristine and sandy and great for swimming, perfect for kids. The area is ideal for hiking or biking, or just plain sitting and relaxing. No smoking and no pets and please note that the guest limit in our home is 8, regardless of age.
Many of our guests have rented from us every summer for close to 15 years, with some staying two weeks every summer! Any of them would welcome your call for a reference on our home. THANK YOU!

Peace. Unbeatable views, relaxation. Turn your cell off and take in the beach and scenery.
Thank you for our "home away from home". It really is paradise for us. Some day, we have to live here--forever! The connection of family time up here is unsurpassed: it's beautiful! The memories we've collected are all thanks to you and your generosity. To us, there's no other place like this in the world. What a privilege. We're coming back here next year 'cuz we can't wait. So here's to another great vacation: Thanks from the bottom of our hearts!
We have rented from Jeff & Carrie for 12 going on 13 years, for 2 weeks each summer, which pretty much says it all. However, all of the photos and the video that you see here accurately represent this home's absolutely pristine condition. Each year there is something new that has been done to update the cottage and/or to make it more convenient and comfortable. You simply will not find better, more attentive rental owners, or nicer people, than Jeff & Carrie. They truly want your vacation experience in their home to be impeccable.
Cathead Bay is a place to take yourself off of "the grid" and get away from it all. Though there is a television, we choose not to turn it on. We walk, swim, kayak, hike, bike, read, play games, and totally get away from all of the distractions of daily life. Over the years we have seen many types of wildlife, especially birds, including blue herons and eagles. We have been vacationing here for over 20 years in total, since our children were very small. It continues to call us back each summer, and we find that our two weeks go by way too fast. One of our favorite restaurants is Riverside Inn, in Leeland. We have rarely had a meal that was less than wonderful there, and the food is upscale. For burgers, Knot Just A Bar in Omena is great. There are any number of vineyards on the Peninsula for wine tasting, little shops in Northport, Sutton's Bay, Omena and Leeland are great for shopping and browsing, and art galleries are always interesting. Stop in Joppich's Bay Street Gallery in Northport to see what is showing this year.
If you want to get away from it all, but still have the comforts of home, this is the place to do it.
