Our family had a wonderful time in Leland. The house is a good location, can bike or walk to town it is on a cul-de-sac with a quiet wooded lot. The house was clean and comfortable, but a little dated and 4th bedroom did not have bed. Water access is a little far to walk but nice to have if you have Kayak/Jet sky. The owners were prompt and helpful with our questions.
Overall I would recommend this house and love the beautiful area and it has so much to do.
We rented this property to serve as family headquarters for a week as we prepared for and celebrated our son's wedding. It was a great house and included everything that was noted in the listing. It was nice to be out of the busy-ness of Leland, yet only a couple of minutes away by car or a short walk. We took advantage of the lake access to spend time sailing. We especially enjoyed having two distinct living areas (up and down) so that our "kids" could entertain friends in the downstairs family room while we relaxed upstairs. The Leland area is beautiful and our stay was great.
