If you Love the water, you'll LOVE Lake Leelanau. Bring your boat or rent one, because you will want to experience the 23 miles of pure heaven that Lake Leelanau has to offer. Our cottage is located on the South Lake Leelanu along the West Shore close to Bel-Lago Winery. The swimming out front is a wonderful shallow, hard sandy bottom. . . No Rocks or Muck! - Great for small children and big kids too. The lake is clear and beautiful, we often snorkel the drop-off beyond the dock. We call it the Fresh Water Caribbean of the North . . .that you can drive to. Lake Leelanau is also well know as a fishing lake. We have caught perch, walleye, bluegill and bass within our cove.
Our cottage has 4 bedrooms; 3 upstairs, & a full bath and 1 bedroom downstairs & a full bath. It has a fully equipped kitchen, family room that faces the lake and opens onto a large deck. The cottage is on a private road, so the setting is quiet and peaceful. After an early morning ski, pull the boat on the lift & enjoy breakfast on the deck. Enjoy the shallow swimming right out front. But don't forget the boat trip to Leland for lunch and shopping. And when you go to gas the boat up at Lakeside, the chili dogs are to die for. Or boat to Dick's Pour House for supper and come back and enjoy a peaceful Michigan summer evening around the campfire. It's the perfect place for the whole family to come and enjoy.
