About the property

Located in the heart of wine country on the shore of south Lake Leelanau, this stunning 4 BR, 2.5 Bath home features panoramic views from every level.

Previously featured in the Showcase of Remodeled Homes, our home has enjoyed consistent “5 star” reviews since being introduced in 2012. As new owners, we look forward to improving upon an already fabulous Leelanau escape.

The updated open-concept kitchen and living areas, plus outdoor dining on the upper balcony and lower patio ensure gorgeous water views whether you opt to dine indoors or al fresco.

Outdoors, you’ll enjoy 120 feet of private, firm sandy bottom Lake Leelanau frontage. Spend your days boating to Leland, floating on a raft, or sun bathing on the dock or sugar-sand beach area. The lake is shallow at the shoreline and for a good distance out, making this great area for supervising children’s summer fun. In the evening, two fireplaces (one on both levels) or the bonfire pit provide the perfect accompaniment to a bottle of wine or s’mores.

Sleeping Bear Dunes, the Leelanau Wine Trail, and unbeatable biking, golf, hiking, fishing, dining, autumn splendor, farmers markets and boutique shopping provide endless nearby options away from the lake. Welcome to Leelanau, the “land of delight!”

Master Bedroom: King Bed plus an en suite master bath

Bedroom 2: Queen Bed

Bedroom 3: Queen Bed

Bedroom 4: 2 sets of Bunk Beds

All linens provided.

About Heather

My husband and I fell in love with the Leelanau Peninsula years ago on a spur-of-the-moment trip "up north." We spent the next several years exploring ever inch of the peninsula. When South Shore House became available, we knew its location and views were unbeatable. We're so excited to share our dream getaway with you!

Heather purchased this house in 2015

Why Heather chose Northern Michigan

The lake house is perched on top of a gentle hill which maximizes the views from every level.

What makes this house unique

The living areas on both the upper and lower levels allow kids to have their own space. In the evenings, adults can continue to converse upstairs without disturbing sleeping kiddos.

Beautiful home, will definitely return

  • 5 of 5

We had an annual girls weekend and rented this home to stay instead of the usual hotel! We had a great time, plenty of room to sleep, loved having all the beds and rooms. The view was amazing! We will definitely be returning.

Great Setup!

  • 4 of 5

This house was perfectly configured for our family. It was well appointed, the view was great, and the sand and lake were just perfect for our little guy! We would definitely stay there again.

Great family vacation house ...

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 adults and 4 kids - although a bit cramped with that many people, it did fit us all. The bunk bed room was great for the kids and the division of floors proved optimal for kids and adults. The house came with many amenities that I hadn't thought to pack (laundry detergent, coffee maker, beach towels, etc.). The kids loved playing in the sand pit near the lake - they called it the beach even though it isn't totally connected to the water (close enough). We used the kayak and paddle board and then rented a pontoon boat from the RV place down the street one night. All in all, our trip was memorable and the area has lots to do for adults and kids!

Amazing Place - Best We've Ever Rented

  • 5 of 5

Great house! We spent a week here with family in July and everyone agreed it was hands-down one of the best vacations we've taken. The location cannot be beat and the views from the back windows towards the lake are superb. I particularly enjoyed watching the sunrise with a cup of coffee from the bench at the end of the dock.

Everything in the house is updated and new. My wife was particularly impressed with the nice bedding. The central A/C was nice to have on the 90+ degree days. We've been renting houses on Lake Leelanau for a few years now and this is by far the best we've seen. We booked our spot for next year on the drive home.

Super lakefront cottage -- great for families

  • 4 of 5

Our family of six (including grandkids aged eight and eleven) spent many happy hours on the waterfront -- wonderful to have unlimited use of the kayak and stand-up paddleboard!

The bedroom setup -- one upstairs and three down -- is convenient and comfortable. The house overall is light, airy, clean, nicely decorated and equipped. Heather is a gracious and helpful owner. We would rate the property as five stars if there were shades across the back upstairs windows -- the morning sun can be very bright and hot.
