Overview

Northern Michigan Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

This is one amazing location on stunning Cathead Bay Lake Michigan in Northport. A beautiful guest cottage awaits you and is perfect for cozy getaway. We recommend this for a maximum of 2 adults comfortably. There is a bedroom set-up for children with bunk beds. The guest cottage is part of a larger property but does have its own entrance and privacy. Some stairs up to front door, boardwalk to beach.

Flat-screen TV, Satellite, Blu-ray player and WIFI. Sheets and towels are included. Full kitchen with dishwasher.

Miles of Lake Michigan beach is just steps away.Shared catwalk from cottage to beach. Private deck in back overlooks the Leelanau State Park which is a low dune area that you can hike. Just kick off your flip flops and sink your toes in the sand and you will think you stepped into heaven. The most spectacular sunsets are to be seen at this location. Sit out on the beach by the propane fire pit and enjoy the show!

Many local hiking trails, parks, and beaches to explore. Easy drives to the villages of Northport or Leland for dining and shopping.

Air conditioning. Sorry, no pets.

Will consider weekly or short stays during any season. Summer 3 night minimum.

Would love to return....

  • 5 of 5

We did this for our 5 year anniversary and it was everything we expected and more, the location is going to be hard to top for any future vacations, the cottage itself was spotless and everything we were looking for! Would love to return to this property and the Cathead Bay area in general.

Reviewer Comments:

This is a guest house that is over a garage. It does have a full kitchen, but no laundry (no issues for us.) The place is light and airy and great to have the windows open and hear the waves at night. It is attached to a main house, so you do have to walk down the back deck of the main house to get to the beach. It was slightly awkward walking up to another house, but we did enjoy watching some sunsets. The place is actually nicer in person than the pictures depict. The decor and furnishings were pitch perfect. The only downside is that the place isn't deep cleaned. It was wiped down and surface clean, but there is dust EVERYWHERE, dust that has been there for awhile. The shower curtain was a bit slimy. If you're a clean freak, you would be compelled to clean the place. Which is disappointing given you pay a handsome housekeeping fee. It wasn't a deal breaker and we enjoyed our time!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. We do apologize for the lack of cleanliness and have brought this to the attention of housekeeping. This location is on a dirt road and surrounded by sand and is challenging keeping the dust out.

Reviewer Comments:

If you want unparalleled, pristine, quiet and private beach access just a few steps away from your bed, THIS IS THE PLACE. Words don't even come close to describing how beautiful the Sunset Beach Hideaway was. The owners were kind and welcoming, inviting us to use the back deck of their house (which the rental is attached to) to our hearts' content. The beach was just wonderful, with a view of the North and South Fox Islands and Manitou off in the distance. I enjoyed waking up and taking in the impressive State Park dunes behind the rental with a cup of coffee. It's a bit of a drive from downtown Northport, but it's hard to want to leave when you have a view this magnificent. We truly felt like we were at the end of the world and I am already plotting when to book my next stay! 10/10!

Reviewer Comments:

We spent a little more than we have in the past, but as the saying goes... “you get what you pay for!“ Loved the slightly remote location and beach access. The owners were very nice! The accommodations were very clean and pleasant.

We spent 4 wonderful nights at the Sunset Beach Hideaway rental last week. The location was amazing, with immediate access to Lake Michigan and the sand dunes of the Leelanau State Park! Loved spending each morning listening to the waves on the beach and each evening watching the beautiful sunsets. The owners were available onsite, and were extremely hospitable and welcoming. We will definitely plan for a return visit to the Sunset Beach Hideaway.

We couldn't be happier with our decision to rent this property. The beach was pristine and the properties were surrounded by state parks and dunes. We will try to go back to cathead bay again next year.
