Enjoy the serenity of the historic beach town during the spring and summer seasons. The house is
set on one partially wooded acre. It is a small friendly neighborhood with very little street traffic. Great for a peaceful retreat. It is a great relaxing time, reading a good book, and then watching the sunsets followed by a bonfire . Lots of great swimming, hiking, birding, wild flowers and wild leeks, and morel mushrooms. The night sky can be filled with lots of stars visible all around the house.
Come sleep in the new organic queen size bed with all cotton sheets and down pillows for the best dreams. This house is all green, environmentally sustainable, and healthy. It is a great feeling. As well, it is all on one level with wide door ways to accomodate the handicap.

Pierport is an incredible neighborhood and beach. It is like a hidden secret of a place. Organic fruits, vegetables, milk, eggs, and meat are all available from local farmers. In Fall the color of the leaves is so beautiful. In Winter the snows scapes are quiet and still and the house is all cozy at you look out at the wonderful white. The back hill is great for snowshoeing and cross country skiing. There are miles of fields and forrest to ski through. Crystal Mt. Ski Resort is 40 minutes away.
It is a great place to walk in nature. The deer almost eat out of your hand. Bird feeders attrack many varieties of song birds and perching birds. There are no city lights or traffic noise.
We enjoyed the sleeping Bear Dune climb, shopping in Traverse, relaxing on the beach and enjoying the quaint small towns. We loved campfires and smores, and sleeping in the hammock! Thanks for letting us use your home!! We had fun!
We had a lovely time at Carolyn's home. Especially enjoyed eating meals on the porch. The house was roomy for two. The traffic was busy on the weekend and evenings. Loved cooking with gas and the available herbs in the garden! Internet was slow and capped if you are attached to watching movies or need internet. No cell service so definitely an escape from the usual routine!
This is a lovely cottage; special touches like the antique school bell on vintage back door, small wooden cone lights over the kitchen bar, beautiful clerestory windows in the main living space made it a very charming place to stay. The light, shadows, weather visible from these windows made for a wonderful place to relax and read. We enjoyed spending time in the back yard near the fern lined forest near some of Carolyn's many flower gardens.
Comfortable and attractive accommodations. Lovely gardened landscaping. We enjoyed a wonderful week, walking a short distance to the beach on Lake Michigan, buying fresh fruit from the farm stand, visiting Traverse City and Good Harbor Winery. Caroline was a wonderful hostess, greeting us when we arrived and making sure we had everything we needed.
Very clean with all amenities included. The property is a short walk to a small, public beach. The linens and kitchen items were all included and very clean. Maps and comments from other guests showed local attractions and places to visit. We drove to other areas - Frandfort, Traverse City - so the location was not perfect but centrally located to many attractions.
The owner provided great service - calling a few times and leaving good instructions.
I would recomend the property if you are looking for a nice place to stay away from the noises of the more cengested areas. We are likely to return.
This cottage was the perfect get-away for me and my wife, which was within view of Lake Michigan. The nearby artesian well was a bonus. We enjoyed the peaceful environment, and yet mountain biking, the Chrystal Mountain Resort, and excellent dining options were within a short drive.
Being very fond of the Arcadia area, I selected this home based on its proximity to golf courses and day trips to other points of interest on the leelanau peninsula. The house is darling! Steps from a beach, lovely sunsets from the wraparound porch, yet still located just off M22. Many golf courses within 15-20 minutes. So peaceful and quiet when we stayed in.
