Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 6

What a charming spot to get away from it all at the Good Harbor Grove cottage. Situated on a spacious piece of land, you are surrounded by sunshine, birds, beauty and wide open spaces.This 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom, ranch home is on Good Harbor Trail and faces east. Sleeps up to 6.

Bedrooms have 1 Queen, 1 Queen, and 2 Twins. Updated in 2015, you will find the accommodations very comfortable. Hardwood floors throughout. The living room dining room is a combo and features a vintage stereo and turntable, plus a flat panel TV. There is no cable TV, however there are your basic local stations.

There is so much history in this little area that one time was actually a town. Cool breezes drift over from Lake Michigan which is only a mile from this location. Located on a country road, you can ride your bike to Good Harbor Beach, one of the most beautiful Lake Michigan beaches in Leelanau County. There are peek-a-boo views of Pyramid Point on Lake Michigan. The night skies offer star gazing right out your door. With little or no light pollution, be prepared to be dazzled by the night skies. The kids can run around in the yard while you relax on the deck, maybe with a good book or a glass of wine. Also on the property are historic buildings that, although are not usable for our guests at this time, make for awesome photo opportunities. The history of this home and setting is featured at the rental. Have fun going down memory lane! Pick up local meats in Maple City or Cedar and start up the grill. The Good Harbor Winery is only a few minutes away. No worries about running out of wine. Market 22 restaurant is only a 5 minute drive away. Glen Arbor is an easy 13 mile drive. The Sleeping Bear Dune Climb is just 5 minutes out of Glen Arbor but in your location you are surrounded by the National Lakeshore. Traverse City is just 19 miles away.

Your well mannered pet is welcome. Window air conditioners in two of the bedrooms. No smoking.

Reviewer Comments:

We stayed at Good Harbor Grove and boated out of Leland for a few days. What a fantastic vacation for our family! This cottage was perfect for us! It was clean, conveniently located, and had everything we needed. Internet was good and the smart TV had Netflix. We were impressed at how the owners kept the old cottage feel but also added modern conveniences. The furniture was comfortable. This is a great location if you're visiting Sleeping Bear, Leland, Glen Arbor, Lake Leelenau, or Sutton's Bay. It's very close to Good Harbor beach and we found lots of Petoskey Stones. There was a slight issue with water pressure in the bathroom but the great people at VisitUpNorth addressed it quickly and it's now good to go. They were very, very good and we've always been happy renting through them. This cottage may look simple from the outside but it's very clean and very nice. We will definitely stay here again if it's available next year.

Reviewer Comments:

This rental was a nice place to stay. I would have to agree with a previous review that it is very close to the road. So if you have dog(s) that are coming with you, it is very close to the road and vehicles do travel fast on the road. Other than that, the rental was very clean, great location, quiet overall and the backyard was private.

Nice little house that permits dogs. The house Is on a busy road however. We liked the home and found it clean and well-appointed. 10 am check out is really early, it would be nice if it could be noon like hotels.

Reviewer Comments:

On the good side we enjoyed the deck and backyard views very much. The location was convenient to all the area activities. Unfortunately the house was swarming with fruit flies. There were traps left out but they didn't do much. We like to cook on our trips but couldn't as bugs would land on everything. We couldn't open windows so the house was a little stuffy. The house is very dark inside and close to the road. Renters should be notified of the bug problem at time of booking so they can decide if it is a problem for them or not. We had a great weekend in Leelanau, but would not stay here again.

Owner's Response: We are sorry that the fruit flies were an issue but this time of year there is really not much to be done about it. We are surrounded by orchards, hop and grape orchards and this is the time of year the harvesting starts. We do leave notes in the rentals that address this situation, with some things you can do to limit them. There is only so much that can be done. It is no reflection on the cleanliness of the house fyi.
