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.

Reviewer Comments:

Excellent in every way. Excellent access to Lake Michigan, very clean, swim-able shoreline. Plenty of areas to lounge and unwind. Very quiet. Short 10-minute drive into Northport and from there a quick trip to Leland and other great spots for dinner, ice cream, shopping. Sand dunes behind property were a nice plus. Amazing sunsets and star-gazing opportunities. The rental itself is clean, tastefully decorated, modern, outfitted with everything I have in my home kitchen. Great view from kitchen and nice deck facing dunes. Great TV with cable and DVD for those occasional rainy mornings. Property owner / host was very friendly, welcoming and helpful. Wonderful time.

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.
