About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8 Total

Two week rentals only (no one week rentals).

Charming cottage in a quiet setting on beautiful North Lake Leelanau. Located in the middle of Leelanau County. This cozy cottage offers a very relaxing environment and great location (near Suttons Bay, Leland, Northport, and Glen Arbor). Sleeping Bear Dunes nearby which was voted by Good Morning America as Most Beautiful Place in the country. Explore the Leelanau Peninsula with its cherry orchards, wineries, great shopping, casinos, rolling hills, or attend a world-class concert at Interlochen. Cottage is on a private road (off CR641) on the east side of North Lake Leelanau and directly on 100' frontage, back of cottage surrounded by woods.

Relax on the large deck overlooking beautiful North Lake Leelanau. Take in the spectacular sunsets. Perfect rental for families and friends.

Bring your own watercraft and moor it at your own private dock with bench for lake/sunset viewing in front of the cottage. Great swimming and fishing right off your private dock. Clear and clean water and shallow for little ones. The beautiful Sleeping Bear Dunes and beach-walking on Lake Michigan is only minutes away. Take your pick of many beautiful beaches for walking/swimming, catching the sunsets, rock hunting. Kayak the beautiful Crystal River, wonderful craft shows, festivals, or just kick-back and enjoy the peacefulness and beauty of the area. Many great restaurants and coffee shops to choose from. Historic Fishtown in Leland is approx only 5 miles from the cottage. Explore beautiful South Manitou Island out of Leland.

About Jessie

Live in California but love Michigan (grew up here).

Jessie purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Jessie chose Northern Michigan

Lower northern Michigan, particularly North Lake Leelanau near Leland,

Michigan, is one of the most beautiful areas I have ever been in.

What makes this cottage unique

Peace, the beauty, the friendliness of the people in the area. Came here as a kid with my parents many years ago and fell in love with it and now I get to enjoy/share it with my own children and Grandchildren. Have travelled all over the world, but none is finer than Lake Leelanau, Michigan.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Many thanks again for a wonderful second stay at your lovely cottage. We enjoyed the local restaurants and wineries. The suggestions on what to do/see were also greatly appreciated.

Had a wonderful, relaxing stay at Mellow Yellow. Already planning a return trip. Weather, cottage, area, food, wine -- all was perfect. What a way to make some great memories for our families. Loved it and thank you.

Mellow Yellow - Lake Leelanau

  • 5 of 5

We liked swimming in the clear, clean lake - was nice as the water was warm. The kayaking was so relaxing and the sleeping accommodations were very comfortable. Lots of book reading and sight seeing - so beautiful in Leelanau County. Looking forward to another summer visit next year.
