Something to Remember When the Snow Flies!

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I spent several weeks this summer in this lovely cottage on the river and loved every minute. The house is well equipped and comfortable. The owners are fantastic and went above and beyond to ensure we were content. I’ll miss sitting in the yard at happy hour watching the boats go by! I recommend highly!

Perfect 2 Weeks!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from 2 weeks in Leland on the river. This home is located close to town, we walked and biked and canoed all over. We have stayed in numerous other homes in Leland and this one is by far our favorite. The owners were more than welcoming, we loved every minute of our vacation. You can't go wrong with this rental.

Leland 2015

  • 5 of 5

This has become our favorite cottage after twenty five years of visiting Leland! Beautifully maintained cottage and grounds provide everything we need. The well stocked kitchen is great for cooking family meals. Cocktails by the river in the evenings...biking or walking into town...we even took the canoe to the Merc one day! We love that the Frick's have kept many of the books and other items from the original cottage owners, the Lamphear's. Cherryll is a perfect, thoughtful host who always makes us feel so welcome. Wish we could stay all summer long!

Leland 2012

  • 5 of 5

We had a great summer vacation in Leland this summer. Our host was super helpful and accommodating. The house was perfect for our family of 2 adults and 3 children. The house was clean, warm and cozy, and the lot is very private and peaceful. The house is great, but we spent most of our time sitting by the river. We were walking distance to town, but we rented bikes for the week. If you are looking for a clean, authentic, up north cottage in Leland, this is a great rental.

Beautiful Cottage on River

  • 5 of 5

Four great girlfriends spent a week in this beautiful river setting. Everything is close enough that you can walk for provisions, dinner, shopping but yet the location is peaceful and quiet. Cherryll made everything easy and was a great hostess making us all feel right at home. If you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing time on the water look no further. This location is also great for getting to the beach, Sleeping Bear Dunes for some great hiking in the cedar pine forests or just sitting on your private dock enjoying the water, weather and friends.
