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 4 kayaks for plenty of family fun. 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.

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!
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!

Beautiful home and view!
Had a great time , beds very comfortable, very quiet, last house on dead end street.
Comfortable stay, small beach
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.
3 kayaks provided on property for tenant use with life jackets provided.
