About the property

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. Short stays are permitted during prime summer dates, however, deposits will not be charged for reservations totaling less than 7 nights that are booked online until the reservation is confirmed by Visit Up North the next business day. Arrival and/or departure date must back up to existing reservations and/or begin/end on a Saturday or Sunday.

Reviewer Comments:

This was our second stay at Cathead Bay. As it is an upper level cottage, we would recommend it to anyone who can manage a lot of stairs. Do your food shopping before you get there. We like to prepare our own meals and the kitchen has EVERYTHING you'd need. We love the views of the dunes on one side and the private beach on the other. You'll love it!

We had a lovely time exploring Northport and the surrounding area during our week long stay. Clint was a perfect host and gave us plenty of space to vacation and relax. Our cottage was the perfect size for our family of 4 with 2 young boys. We had a few good days at the beach when the weather cooperated. It was great to be on a private beach.

We returned to this stretch of Lake Michigan and glad we did . It is as picturesque as a few yrs ago. We took advantage of a very reasonably priced paddle board rental from Northport for a few days. All good!

Reviewer Comments:

Excellent location with beautiful views of Cathead Bay and Lake Michigan. Quiet and relaxing. It even provided a challenging "Dune Climb". IF you are able to reach the summit you will be able to see both Cathead Bay and Grand Traverse Bay. As I wrote in the Host's guestbook - "First time Up North but it will not be the last time." America's Best Kept Secret.
