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

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 Leland Township
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.

Place was cozy and nice!!
The view was amazing and the inside was cozy. What it made it so great was the location. Next to all the wineries, downtown Leland, Sutton’s Bay, and Traverse City. Plus close to all of the parks and trails. Always something to do. Easy instructions to the house and our contact was available noon or night for questions or concerns. Great place to stay!!
New Years Eve on the Lake!
We had a wonderful time staying the house! We had 5 couples (10 total) who were able to comfortably stay inside all day in less than ideal weather conditions (~14 inches of snow on Saturday). We had a great time and would definitely recommend staying here! The house is close to town and a perfect spot to check out breweries or wineries!
Lovely cottage with a great view of the lake. We came in the fall to enjoy the changing of the leaves and were not disappointed. The cottage is spacious, modern with all new features, a great stove and access to all the things to do in Leland and around Lake Leelanau. Extremely clean! We loved it and plan to return.
Exactly as drscribed
Unfortunate that we were there in the midst of fruit fly season, but lake and dock were wonderful!!
Updated, private, amazing views, close to adorable lake towns
We loved our stay here! The house is updated and gorgeous, but still has a cozy lake-house feel. We were 2 min. away from a smaller portion of town (by the narrows that connects North and South Lake Leelanau) and has a couple great restaurants, small grocery store and a cute coffee shop. (Get pizza from Dick's in town and do a tasting at the distillery). There is even homemade pie shop and a nice winery you can dock at by the narrows.
We were also surprised to realize that our house was within 10 minutes of many other waterfront towns: Sutton's Bay, Northport, Leeland. They each are each on the water, have nice shops and plenty of icecream and restaurants. My favorite coffee shop is Bees in Sutton's Bay.
Another highlight is the biking! We biked from Sutons Bay to Traverse City on a great paved trail. It was our first family ride with one kid in a trailer and one attached to my husband's with a trail-a-ride. Sutton's Bay Bikes will get you hooked up and were so sweet; even to new riders. It was an awesome experience. Many places to rest if needed.
We also rented a pontoon boat, additional kayak, and Jetski's, from the RV park that is only 1 mile away. They were very affordable and had nice equipment. Book in advance with the boat, though.
The dunes are close by as well. Even if you aren't a hiker, go to see them. There is a mapped-out drive called the Pierce Stocking Drive that will take you to 12 points of interest and you can get out at any of them. Stops 9 and 4 look like the Caribbean ocean. Go to the visitors center for a map.
We can't say enough how amazing Michigan and all of the lakes are. The water is clear land beautiful. You can see to the bottom from the dock. Our kids could touch by the dock. The bottom is sandy, but you may want water shoes due to some drift wood.
The house came with 4 life jackets, a kayak, and a SUP which was a huge bonus.
I corresponded with the owner, Heather several times. She was very easy to work with and pleasant.
Overall, this area is the best combination of water sports, hikes, biking, relaxing by the fire pit and enjoying the amazing view. Our family will cherish the week we stayed.
Great Lake rental for the kiddos
Great house for a group. The kids especially loved the property and sandy "beach". Can't beat the view from the deck. Heather was a great host and checked in on us and gave recommendations.
