In the heart of Leelanau county in downtown Lake Leelanau, The Leelanau Boat Club was formed when the Leelanau Lumber company changed hands. The water way, lovingly referred to as the ' Narrows' has been protected with the assistance of the Leelanau Conservancy and the Lake Leelanau Lake Association. That means that the Boat Club is surrounded by natural area and is a unique property for couples, small groups and single families.
Cottages include a boat slip and there are many quiet activities to embrace and room to roam on the 10 acres that encompasses the Club.

The Leelanau Laundry Program that serves low income families' is also a focus of Egan's time when she is not tending to boat club activities!
We live right next door on six acres. The Leelanau Boat Club was formed because the property initially was to be developed into Condominiums and when the Condo development was in jeopardy, the property came up for sale. We worked with the Conservancy and the Lake Association to protect the waterfront. Docks do however still exist and so we share the boardwalk that we use to the water with our guests at the Leelanau Boat Club. Coming in 2014- the Boat House will be restored along with the addition of 4 slips to the boat house complex. This property is unique because it is within the village of Lake Leelanau but consist of ten acres of wooded splendor. Walk through the enchanted forest and listen to the sound of nature and within minutes you can reach the post office or grocery store on foot.
The privacy and spaciousness of this area is what is unique to the Leelanau Boat Club. Activities that we enjoy: The Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park was just voted the Most beautiful place in the country. The beaches are fantastic both on Lake Michigan and West Bay as well as on the many small inland lakes.
