About Kristy

Vince always wanted a beautiful piece of land in Leelanau County that he could transform into his showroom for his excavating and landscaping business. He bought Eagle's Nest in 2005 and slowly started to transform it into a work of art. The property is filled with large stone retaining walls, numerous flower gardens, built in pool patio, and tree galore.

We spent the weekend at this beautiful spot and can highly recommend it to other travelers. The house is adorable and well appointed. The grounds are outstanding and it is located well away from any traffic so it provides a quiet, relaxing stay.

Excellent Get-away

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was cozy and comfortable and the setting is beautiful, quiet and relaxing. We had easy access to everything that the peninsula has to offer and could come back in the afternoon or evening to relax by the pool. We really enjoyed ourselves.

Beautiful oasis

  • 5 of 5

Eagle's Nest was the perfect romantic getaway for my fiancé and me. The accommodations were perfect and the hospitality was first class! From being welcomed buy a complementary bottle of wine to starting the day with fresh ground organic coffee, Kristy and Vince have thought of everything. The grounds are stunningly beautiful and Rufus makes the best welcoming party! We will definitely back be back soon! Thank you so much for sharing your place with us for the weekend. ~Audrey

This rental is situated in the heart of Leelanau County's wine and cherry country. Rolling hills of orchards, numerous freshwater lakes, and local hospitality makes this an ideal place to relax and get away. Take some time to fall in love with the many features of this pristine area. Around the year enjoy and partake in our local festivals like The Walleye Festival, Fourth of July, Color Tour, and The National Cherry Festival just to name a few. Farmer markets are every weekend and offer some of the best local produce and products from around the county. With all the freshwater lakes in the area, there is never a short supply of water related fun or a beautiful beach to catch a nap. Local businesses offer charter fishing, boat rentals (pontoon, power boats, kayaks, canoes, jet skis, etc). The Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park is just a half hour away and features multiple nature related site-seeing walks/hikes. This area offers it all, so why not be at the heart of it?
