Overview

Northport Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

This cottage is the perfect getaway if you are looking for a private and secluded vacation spot! We are located at the end of the private Cherry Home Shores community right up against the forest with lots to explore! We have a large front deck with gorgeous views of Grand Traverse Bay of Lake Michigan. We provide 3 kayaks for plenty of family fun. There are 4 private beaches in the community for tenant use. There are tennis courts, sand volleyball, picnic areas, and a playground. There are also private hiking trails for wildlife viewing and bird watching. The neighborhood is perfect for biking, jogging or walking.

There are many attractions and activities in the Northport area. Our favorites include Sleeping Bear Dunes, many wineries to tour and do tastings, historic Fishtown in Leeland with shopping and lakefront restaurants, and marinas with boat rentals and fishing expeditions. There is also a casino and lighthouse museum to enjoy.

About The 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.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1992

Why The Owner chose Northern Michigan

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.

Great house tucked away at the end of the road, easy access to water and thew activities associated (kayaking, swimming, etc.) Couldn't have been happier with the accommodations or the trip.

Perfect rental

  • 5 of 5

We truly had a great vacation in Northport. The house was perfect for what we needed it to be. Comfortable and cozy on the inside, and beautiful outside. The view of the bay is spectacular and the water itself was warm and ideal for swimming and kayaking. There are large rocks right outside on the beach, but nothing that a cheap pair of water shoes can't remedy. Our 22 month old had shoes and was in the water swimming and kayaking every day with us. Thank you for sharing your house with us!

Very comfy and peaceful!!

  • 4 of 5

I enjoyed staying at the cottage, it was very quiet and peaceful. It was just what I needed and what I expected. It was well stocked and very clean, all we brought besides our clothes was food for the grill and drinks. The kayaks were fun and the water and weather was perfect. Although the water doesn't get deep for a long time and our kids just passed a swimming course, It would have been nice to have life jackets. But, being able to relax next to the fireplace or the bonfire was the best after a long day on the water. The price was right, and I will be reserving this again this summer, and will definitely recommend this place to anyone who enjoys peace and quiet!

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We are sorry you didn't see the life jackets. We provide both adult and children life jackets. We do not recommend anyone to go on the kayaks without one. We will put up a notice to inform our guests that life jackets are hanging in the laundry room. Thanks for your nice review and hope to hear from you in the future.

We had a "Destination Book Club Weekend", and could not have asked for a nicer place to stay! Enjoyed the awesome view, beautiful Fall colors, some wine tasting, and just chilling out while putting together puzzles in the coziness of.this cottage. Would definitely come back again!
