5 Star Luxury Vacation Home on Beautiful Lake Leelanau

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a weekend wine tour in October with three other couples. This house was perfect in every way and there was plenty of space to spread out. This luxurious home has everything you could possibly need for a week or weekend getaway. The accommodations were pristine and well kept. The home is located directly on Lake Leelanau. The lake views are amazing and star gazing at night off the dock is really fun too. We were able to faintly see the Milky Way Galaxy.

Beautiful house in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The house is outstanding. There was plenty of room with the four bedrooms and spacious living areas. Everything was clean and in good order. Bathrooms and furnishing are modern and comfortable. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we could think of including a Keurig and margarita glasses. There were plenty of towels, blankets and extra pillows. I could not think of anything else that they could have provided.

The yard was unbelieveable. It has everything that we could need. We felt like we were living the life of the rich and famous while sitting in the hot tub and enjoying the beautiful view. It was great to find a house that had a pontoon boat that we could rent. We were able to drive the boat all of the way to Leland where we shopped and ate lunch.

The owner was very responsive to questions and made themselves available to assist.

The location is perfect. It was an easy drive to Fishtown, Leelanau and Sutton's Bay.

I would love to stay here again because it was so easy to access restaurants and shopping. And there must be 10 wineries within a 30 minute drive.

Beautiful place, beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay on Lake Leelenau. The outdoor area is the best! The house has all the amenities you'd need, but is very comfortable. We had four adult couples for the weekend and had plenty of room Highly recommend this beautiful place.

Wonderful summer lake rental both inside and out

  • 5 of 5

This house and grounds are absolutely beautiful. We have stayed for the last two years and are booked for 2018. Larry and Jackie are perfect hosts, available to answer any questions or resolve any issues that might come up.

The kitchen is well stocked with staples which makes it much easier to pack the kitchen food you need from home. It's also only a short drive to Suttons Bay and Traverse City with lots of activities in both of these places.

We absolutely love the outdoors at this property. The volleyball court is used by our young grandchildren as the biggest and best sandbox on the planet (complete with lots of sand toys). Our two older grandsons loved the boat-if they were awake, that's where they wanted to be. The driveway is long and good for a short walk with young grandchildren, or a short bike ride for the older children.

The landscaping and patio are lovely and make for a very relaxing place to spend time reading or relaxing or visiting with family. Our family also loves cooking in the outdoor kitchen.

We would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a perfect getaway week on a Michigan lake-you won't find anything any better than this place!

Beautiful home & setting, exceptional waterfront

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year staying at this home. It is beautiful inside and out. The owners, Larry & Jackie, are accommodating and make your stay exceptional. The home is well stocked so cooking is fun and the waterfront setting makes you want to spend your days on the lakefront. The hot tub is an added benefit. There is lots of room for several families to be together or spend time apart. The location is perfect with just a short ride to Leland, Suttons Bay and Traverse City.

About Larry Fleis

My wife and I purchased this home in May 2011. It is gorgeous and we look forward to the day we can retire in the Lake Leelanau area. We get out as often as we can and rent the vacation homes at the other times. See our other vacation home listing on the vrbo site property number 169229.

Larry Fleis purchased this house in 2011

Why Larry Fleis chose Cedar

We love the area and plan to retire here. We love the lake and amenities in the area. The 20+ mile long lake has so many things you can do or places to visit on the lake.

What makes this house unique

All the things we like to do for our recreation are in the area, close by, or available on the water.
