Experience a perfect summer on North Lake Leelanau in Michigan! Our "Pine Patch" property is nestled among trees on two acres of private land with 220 feet of lakefront water access. One main cottage and two cabins provide comfortable beds for eight people in four bedrooms. With plenty of community gathering areas, the spacious property also hosts quiet nooks, a garden patio, and modern wide private dock. Creature comforts include a furnished kitchen, authentic stone fireplace, washer/dryer, telephone, cable TV, and wireless Internet. Boat lift for boats under 1500 pounds.
Note: Properties not specifically listed as NORTH Lake Leelanau are often located on SOUTH Lake Leelanau. Beware of the difference. This property is located on NORTH Lake Leelanau, and is facing west for the benefit of spectacular sunsets. It is so attractive that it has actually been rented by owners of South Lake Leelanau property!
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: We are now open for reservations for the 2018 season. Because we generally sell out early for July and August, the best way to secure these dates is to plan well in advance.

Chris purchased this cottage in 1974
PINE PATCH: All the creature comforts and all of the summer cottage charm, combined in to one property.
Hammocks, swings and a great front yard overlooking the water. Double wide modern dock with a buoy/anchor for your boat.
Pine Patch was nothing short of spectacular!!!! We had a 3 generation reunion in this gorgeous house which was home to great fishing, tubing and swimming. Fun times on the lawn playing badminton and croquet. Bring your bikes and golf clubs as the area is PERFECT. And when we needed a rest, the hammocks were perfect for an afternoon nap. The teens LOVED the adjacent cottages and made for a super pleasant trip for all 3 generations as everyone had their own space. The house was beautifully equipped and clean with ample space (including 2 full size refrigerators). But the best memory of all were the dinners enjoying the sunsets. Thanks for a memorable vacation!!!!!
We just came back from a wonderful week at Lake Leelanau and thoroughly enjoyed our accommodations at Pine Patch. There are 2 separate little cabins which gives everyone lots of privacy. The grounds are beautiful, with hammocks and great sunsets. The dock is good for swimming and sunning. Easy drive to the little towns and sites. Nice biking on the surrounding roads. Well equipped kitchen.
My family and I just returned from a wonderful week at Pine Patch! The cottage was perfect~ cozy and elegant at the same time with gorgeous views and amazing outdoor amenities! We enjoyed lounging on the hammocks and swings, sitting by the camp fire, sunning, fishing and boating from the fabulous dock and playing bocci ball and other lawn games in the large yard.
Lake Leelanau is beautiful and the surrounding towns are quaint and fun to visit. We highly recommend Pine Patch for a magical summer vacation!
Pine Patch was a wonderful cottage for us to rent and include our adult children.
Pine Patch was a great choice for us as the separate cabins worked out perfect for our children that brought their significant others with them and offered them their own private space. We were a group of 8 and there was plenty of room for everyone to sit, eat, cook and socialize. Being a cooler summer this year, we REALLY enjoyed sitting around the fire pit each evening for some great conversation, star gazing and planning the next days activities. The sunsets were spectacular, the dock more than large enough to accommodate everyone and there was plenty of area to park 4 cars.
We enjoyed all of our favorite places as well as some wonderful buys at the local shops.
Overall, Pine Patch was a beautiful place to stay and the owner was great to work with with plenty of communication and answers to questions. We would definitely recommend this cottage and location!
My husband, kids & I stayed at Pine Patch for a week in July with my parents and my sister & brother-in-law. The property has a main cabin with two large bedrooms and two smaller cabins, which made it great for our extended families to vacation together. We were able to share meals together, play games, etc, but also able to retreat to our "own" areas when we wanted.
The cottages were clean and well-maintained. The linens provided were very nice and the beds were really comfortable. There is a total of one queen and six twin beds, which would also make this a great place for a girls' weekend get-away (overworked mom talking here). There is plenty of parking for several cars.
We enjoyed a nightly campfire and the views of the sunset. There is a large dock with two benches and steps going into the lake, which was handy for everyone in our party. There is a stairway down to the dock, which worked well for us as we were traveling with young children and the stairs gave them a clear boundry of where they could not wander unattended. Our kids particularly loved the hammocks and campfires. We also rented a pontoon boat and tube from a local marina and had a blast on the lake.
The owner, Chris, was very helpful in answering our questions before and during our stay. I liked the fact that we dealt directly with the owner, rather than a property management company like many other rentals on Lake Leelanau. Other than food and clothes, Pine Patch was well-equiped with most of what we needed during our stay. We brought an extra cooler and regularly replenished it with ice because we had a lot of food and beverages for our large group. We had a minor problem while we were there and the caretaker quickly remedied the situation.
Pine Patch is situated close to Leland, Lake Leelanau, Suttons Bay, and various other charming small towns as well as Traverse City and the Sleeping Dunes National Lakeshore. Being there for a week renewed my love of Northern Michigan. If you haven't traveled to Leelanau County, you are missing out on some great wines, art, festivals, and water sports. Pine Patch will offer you a great "home base" to take it all in.
I'm the type that loves woodsy seclusion, as long as there are signs of life nearby... and a golf course. Pine Patch was the perfect fit for us. We'd spend the mornings reading books in the hammock, the afternoons swimming or tubing or water skiing (the private dock was such a cool bonus), and then in the evenings we'd drive or cycle on the bikes we brought into the small town called Leland, which is on Lake Michigan.
The family-friendly Bluebird lounge became our favorite watering hole, with delicious pizza, a great beer selection, and a jukebox, pool table, and game room for kids. I also discovered the Leland Country Club, which has a great golf course on the lake.
The exterior cabins on the property were ideal for the kids, and overall we were really impressed with how clean everything was, as well as how easy it was to handle the rental details with the owner, Chris. Thanks for a great stay! We hope to be back again in summer 2010.
Property is double wide and 400' deep. Beautiful back yard and far from road.
