I live in the Midwest, but originally I grew up in a sweet little town in a beach house on the shore of the Long Island Sound in Connecticut. I've always had a thing for the quaint sea towns of New England and thought nothing could fulfill my desire to get back there, until I found this home. From the minute you drive down the quiet, private road to the house you just know you're in for something very special. Once inside the lovely, comfortable house, everyone's first reaction is to take a deep breath and take in the absolutely stunning view of the Great Lake Michigan. Several members of my family drove out from Connecticut and Vermont to join my husband, son and I that first summer in 2013. This location was so perfect for each of us to find our own adventure, swim, walk the beach, or relax, but it was clear when we were departing that we had much more left to discover on the Leelanau Peninsula. We've come back twice since that first magical summer. We came back again this past summer with more family members, and again in September, for a quiet, romantic, peaceful week with my husband. Read all the reviews because they perfectly describe what you can do and see at this beach house. I'm not sure anyone can adequately convey how this wonderful place makes you feel. My family and I are already dreaming about and planning for when we go back next summer. Our heartfelt thanks to the owners, who treat you like family. Absolutely, I'd recommend without question.
