Charming and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

Always enjoy staying at the cabins at West Winds. There are always kids for my 10 year old girl to play with. Love the sand beach area, fire pits and the view. Cabin clean and well stocked. Will return again next year. Close to almost any of your popular activity destination such as: sand dune climb, biking, hiking, swimming, boating and more. Close to shopping and wineries.

Nice Cottage, great location and beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is so cute and comfortable. It was large enough for our family of four. We loved the location and the ability to go to Traverse City, Leland, Lake Leelanau and Suttons Bay in just minutes. We loved traveling to Leland and Lake Leelanau by boat. So fun. The kitchen was nicely stocked and the grill was a plus. The beds were comfortable. We will stay here again the next time we are in Northern Michigan.

We have been going to West Wind Resort for 20 years and Cabin #7 has always been our favorite. Sue & Steve do a wonderful job maintaining / updating the cabin and genuinely care about their guests stay.

See you 2015 Lake Leelanau!
