Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + 2 Sleeper Sofas, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

McNeil Cottage is a two bedroom, live-in, furnished cottage that sleeps four to six (two double beds and two sleeper sofas). Nestled in a cove, with a hard, sandy bottom, it is great for all water sports. The lake side of the cottage has a large family room/front porch with large wall to wall windows for unobstructed views of the lake and spectacular sunsets. The outside deck has ample room and seating for comfortable lounging. It is a private place on the lake, but just a short walk or drive to the village of Lake Leelanau offering a church, grocery, gas station, boat launch, marina, as well as parks, restaurants, bars, and shops.

In the heart of Leelanau County, enjoy the festivals, shopping, dining, and sight seeing in the villages of Lake Leelanau, Suttons Bay, Leland, and Glen Arbor, just naming a few. Also, there is an abundance of hiking/biking trails, water sport activities, wineries, breweries, local and state parks. Sleeping Bear Dunes National Shoreline is a beautiful 30 minute drive. And quaint Traverse City is just a 30 minute drive in the other direction.

About Rose Laing

I am a retired school teacher, and along with my husband and brother own the McNeil Cottage. The cottage has been in our family since the mid seventies. Before that it belonged to our uncle and aunt (mom's sister), who were the original owners. We acquired the cottage from our parents in 1993. This cottage has a long tradition of hosting families for summer vacation fun and relaxation. Our own family enjoys the time there every summer, and hope you will too!

Rose Laing purchased this cottage in 1993

Why Rose Laing chose Northern Michigan

If you enjoy a relaxing, unplugged (no cable, no phone, no internet) vacation, with breakfast at the water's edge and the days filled with all that Leelanau has to offer, come to the McNeil cottage. Enjoy a midnight swim under the stars or a romantic bonfire - enjoy the lake life.

What makes this cottage unique

The lake is large, beautiful, and supports all water related activities. The sunsets are nature's gift each evening. The location is private, but convenient. It is a perfect place to unplug and unwind from the stresses of life. If you enjoy a natural setting, you will enjoy our cottage. It is a place that we love!

Absolutely loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

Our week's stay at Rose's cottage was one of our best family vacations! Lake Leelanau is beautiful and the cottage met our needs very well. We enjoyed bonfires, fishing, watching the stars many nights and grilling almost nightly. The surrounding area offered us many fun adventures and we had a full week of enjoying so many places and activities. Thank you to Rose for being a wonderful and attentive host.

Nice property

  • 5 of 5

Have stayed here about 15 weeks total now over many years. New & Improved kitchen is great. TV only works on PBS channels and that often doesn't work if weather foggy, rainy, etc. Fishing was poor in May but that is not the owners fault! See you again in July!

Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at the cottage, and what an enjoyable, relaxing vacation. It is pleasantly comfortable, cozy and perfectly supplied with every need. It's set in a convenient location to surrounding towns. Matter of fact, we spent hours at the beach in nearby Leland, looking for the Leland blue stones. What fun! Also, waking up every morning to a great lake view just a few feet from the front door. Appreciated every communication with Rose, she was friendly, considerate and eager for our stay to be pleasing. Thank you so much. We plan to be back!

Awesome and affordable!

  • 5 of 5

Nice and clean cottage. I Have now rented it about 15 weeks over the years. Rose and Lennie are very helpful owners.The front porch/deck provides a beautiful view of lake and has comfortable furniture. The dock is solid and has cleats to tie up my boat.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted to meet Rose, who is a sweetheart. The cottage was perfect for us, a couple with a teenage daughter. The setting was peaceful and lovely, and the cottage was very clean and comfortable. We were so glad we didn't stay with the rest of the wedding guests at Fountain Point, as it was noisy there, the cabins were not on the lake, and it would have cost $300-$500/night there. Pick up some Indian food at J&T's!
