About Owner

I am a retiree from Clarkston, MI. I have 3 grown children and 2 grandchildren. We all love summer vacations in our cottage on the lake.

Owner purchased this Cottage in 1992

Why Owner chose Leelanau

Cherry Home Shores appealed to me because of the quite and secluded area on the water. We have our own boat and kayaks to enjoy the lake.

                                                        It was perfect! Quiet, secluded with beautiful views of the bay!

                                                        Susan M.

                                                        This small cottage is cozy, quiet and secluded north of Northport close to the top of the Leelanau peninsula and the lighthouse. It had beautiful views of Traverse Bay. The beds were comfortable, it was very cute inside. We loved the open floor plan and loft design with the A frame windows and stone fireplace! We went between Christmas and New Years and the lake effect snow everyday made it so beautiful like our own personal winter wonderland! The small towns along the Northern peninsula were all cute with great food and shops. We loved Northport, Sutton’s Bay, and Leelanau. It’s within 30-40 min of around 30 wineries in the northern loop of the wine trail. A couple of wineries were really amazing like Mawby for sparkling wine, and 45 North for some wonderful Chardonnay, Sauvignon blanc, Marsanne, and their Cabernet franc, 45 Red, and Red Barn Red. Two unexpected favorites were Hop lot brewery and beer garden with the outdoor garden igloos and Tandem Ciders! I would highly recommend this place to stay for a small family or group of friends anytime of the year. We had a great time and would book it again!

                                                        Beautiful and peaceful

                                                        It was a girls weekend! It was relaxing and peaceful! We will definitely come back!!!

                                                        Very nice secluded location. Excellent beach and water view.

                                                        Really enjoyed our stay at this property. The water view and beach were excellent. The cottage was roomy with welcoming decor and comfortable furnishings.

                                                        Wonderful time, beautiful home & property!

                                                        Thank you so much for sharing your home with us! We absolutely loved our stay! The view was beautiful! Kayaking and stone hunting was a blast. And we absolutely loved the town of Northport! Definitely a place that will be on our list to visit again!

                                                        Had a great time , beds very comfortable, very quiet, last house on dead end street.

                                                        Comfortable stay, small beach

                                                        BudCincinnati, OH

                                                        My family has stayed in the community before, but this is the first time we were not allowed to use any of the amenities! The community has four beaches and hiking trails, but all the areas have "NO RENTERS" signs posted. Very disappointing because it was windy during our stay, making the beach at the home very small (waves). It has always been our favorite area to stay, so hopefully the HOA changes their limitations.

                                                        The home was fantastic, with a great deck and grass area. I couldn't be happier with the home itself! So comfy! I don't want to deter anyone from renting this awesome home, just be aware that "renters" aren't allowed anywhere except the rental property.
