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!

Clean and cozy cabin where one can feel "at home"

  • 5 of 5

Small but cozy cabin is clean and welcoming. Kitchen is well equipped and seating is comfortable. The evening sunsets are spectacular, enjoyed from a lakeside patio, accompanied by the welcoming ducks who share the property!

Location is far enough from the busy Traverse City yet close enough to the area's natural wonders.

We have rented this cabin three times, each with a different set of family and friends. Each time, it has been a treat and we are thankful for the thoughtful touches that make us feel so welcome.
