|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
Remember your childhood memories of wonderful Northern Michigan summers, or create new ones with your family. Our 5 bedroom, 2 bath home is full of historic charm. Newly renovated home, built in 1898 with original wood flooring and claw foot tub are sure to make your stay right in the village of Lake Leelanau one you will always remember.
Our home is situated on a corner lot in Lake Leelanau which is a stones throw away from the brand new Boathouse Winery (among many other wineries in Leelanau County) Pedaling Beans Coffee Shop, Dick's Pour House (reasonably priced tavern) boat launch, bait shop, boat rentals, grocery store and shopping.
It is also only 5 miles away from the town of Leland, a charming small town with a spirit you have to experience to believe. In Leland you will find the infamous Fishtown, which boasts a candy store, Cheese Shop sandwiches (which are to die for) a plethora of shopping, fishing charters, boat trips to the Manitou Islands, restaurant and even a small park for the kids. Up in the town of Leland you will find cute boutiques, grocery, family owned bar and breakfast hang out, tennis and basketball courts.
We are also about 5 miles away from another quaint town, Suttons Bay. Suttons Bay offers a movie theater, ice cream shop, several restaurants and bars, and more unique shopping.
The Sleeping Bear National Lake Shore was voted 'The Most Beautiful Place In America' by Good Morning America and is a lovely, scenic 35 mile drive form our home.
The home is fully furnished. We supply all linens, pillows, towels, paper towels, and toilet paper. The kitchen is fully equipped with a microwave, coffee maker, dishwasher, dishes and all pots and pans. We also provide a washer and dryer.
The main level features a large open kitchen with an over-sized table for big family meals. We have a full bath and two bedrooms, one with a king sized bed and the other with two double beds. Also on the main level is a large living room with a pull out sofa, a small area with toys and books for the kids and a large screened in front porch.
On the second level we have three more bedrooms, one with a king sized bed, one with a queen sized bed and the third has two twins. This floor also has a full bathroom.
This home is ideally suited for a large family or several families together looking to build life long memories.
Small town Leelanau County experience and close to so many unique destinations.
The house was wonderful. At least 4 of the rooms were very big, 1 was a little smaller, but plenty of room for people to stay. We had several families stay together without issues of sleeping. Appliances were great, parking was easy, location was wonderful. The only thing I would complain about is the business of the road it is on, however, things close down early at night, so no issues with night time noise. Conveniently located near many places.
We were very fortunate to find Annie's Cottages!
It's hard to find a place to accomidate a large family coming together for a few days of family magical bliss. This cottage was not only centally located in a terrific spot, but was safe, homey, comfortable and came VERY well stocked, which as we all know, is WONDERFUL when traveling!
We were even able to bring along our little dog! The fire pit was nice too.
Would definitely stay here again.
Thank you, Annie's Cottages, for the WONDERFUL memories!!!
Wow, what a great place for a large family. Our daughter was getting married and we thought how are we gong to get everyone in the same house. This place is perfect large kitchen, large bedrooms, living room and a great front porch. There is even a little room with children's toys. The house was very clean. The yard is huge and Annie just put in a beautiful fire pit which was used everyday, which we had lots of great conversations.
The location is amazing across the street is a very nice local bar, a grocery store, restaurant and a local beauty shop which were amazing as we needed. You are so close to downtown Sutton Bay one way and then the other way is Leland can't get any better
There is a boat rental place right behind the house, which we were able to rent a pontoon for the day, what a beautiful ride.
Annie was so great to work with, we could call at anytime and she always responded in a timely matter
Annie Thank You for letting us rent this great place for a great event with lots of Happy Memories.
This is our second year renting this house for our week long wine tour! House more than fits our needs, but what really stands out is Annie's attention to detail and quality of customer service. Any small problem or question you need is handled with a degree of professionalism not found easily these days!! We are looking forward to next years trip already!!! See you next year Annie!! Thanks Rock
We rented this house because of it's location and size. In terms of the size, it was good. We were two families traveling with small children, so there were plenty of bedrooms to accommodate our group. However, in terms of the location, we were a bit disappointed that it was right on the main drag (road 204.) The traffic was a bit noisy but the real problem was Dick's Pour House - the bar across the street. You can hear the music clearly and if it's a rowdy crowd, that might be a problem too. We were [un]lucky enough to hear a bar fight while we were there. I realize that this could be specific to our experience, and may be a rare event, nonetheless, it's worth mentioning.
The rest of the house was good in terms of amenities. The bathrooms had enough towels and the space was clean. The living room is a bit small if there is a large group, but there is a enclosed front porch area that was good for playing games, etc. and the kitchen table was good space as well.
It would have been nice if there was a fire pit in the yard, as it is big and spacious, but the yard is also on a busy corner so there is really no privacy at all.
All in all it was a decent place with a decent price and lots of flexibility in terms of renting it (most places require you to rent a week at a time in the summer) but it was just OK in terms of anything that would make it a memorable experience.
