Outside, enjoy the soft summer breezes on the spacious deck just off the dining room. Charcoal grill. Large yard for a quick game of catch! About 90 steps down to the water, but a gorgeous sandy beach when you get there! There is also a public access to Christmas Cove just north of the property.The sunsets are amazing. A wonderful area to explore--near Peterson Park and the Grand Traverse Lighthouse. Great for rock hunting and beach walking.

Reviewer Comments:

We had a great time at the Windsong house in Northport. The house was cozy and had a tremendous view. I wish we could have stayed longer. Our favorite part is that house is just 90 or so steps from fabulous Petoskey rock hunting. There were a couple of things that need fixing (ex. upstairs bedroom door handle) but overall we were quite pleased with the accommodations. Only about 6-8 minutes from the town of Northport.

Reviewer Comments:

Small group of friends stayed 3 nights to catch the fall colors in Leelanau, do some cycling and visit some wineries. Location was beautiful and remote. Narrow beach at bottom of 71 steps and wooden catwalk over the wooded dunes. The lake view was gorgeous. The house was comfortable and clean. The kitchen had all the hardware needed for cooking though very few staples available like spices or cooking oil. Bring everything you need. Charcoal grill out back worked well, but BYO charcoal. Enjoy.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying with us. We do not supply staple items although oftentimes things get left behind from previous guest's. As you might imagine everyone has a different idea on what should be there. We do recommend items to bring in our paperwork.

Reviewer Comments:

Minus a few little problems, we really enjoyed our stay here. There were no paper towels (at all), no kitchen towels (at all), and it would have been nice to have a couple of games, decks of cards to use while hanging out. Also none of us could get a phone signal and there was no land line phone, that could have been a problem if we needed to use one.

Reviewer Comments:

Rental company provided lots of communication. House was clean. We had some cold nights, and furnace was fully functional. TV, WiFi, pots & pans all good. A/C only in the Master Bedroom. However, the beach was nearly non-existent due to a major erosion problem (that was not disclosed at any point in the marketing).

Owner's Response: We are sad to see you would not recommend Windsong.and apologize that you were disappointed. We have seen in our entire area some beach loss due to high lake levels. When the stairs were placed in June to get to water this area was still walkable just narrow. Fortunetly this beach continues north and does have walkable beach that is wider. This is something that has occurred of recent. Nature brings surprises every year on the big water. It is a stunning majestic lake all year long.all the same.

Reviewer Comments:

We had a great time & loved the location & layout of the house. We would rent it again but there were some problems that need fixing. There was evidence of mice upstairs and down. There is what appears to be an area of mold on ceiling over the loft. The shower curtains were mildewed & we had to wash them the first day. There were NO staples in the house when we arrived- salt & a bit of sugar only. The towels & bedding were all very nice but the crib sheet was sandy when we arrived. The lights on the beach stairs didn't seem to work. We did have a wonderful time though & liked the house.
