Northern Michigan House Rental Photos and Description

Located on 200 feet of private, sandy Lake Michigan beach, this home is nestled on the shore of 3 acres of beautiful Northern Lake Michigan forest, providing privacy and seclusion with the amenities of a modern residence. All rooms have expansive views of the lake with the Manitou Islands in the distance. You may happily spend hours on the deck planning or remembering many pleasurable activities, or you can read and relax as our resident eagle flies by.

The home sleeps six with two upstairs bedrooms and a Queen-sized sleeper sofa in the living room. All linens will be provided. This beautiful home has a fully equipped kitchen and 2 full baths.

Whether you enjoy active water sports, shopping, antiquing or gambling, Sutton’s Bay and Leland are all within easy reach. Many local Michigan vineyards provide wine tastings and both fresh produce and freshly caught fish from Lake Michigan are available.

Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park, recently named the nation’s most beautiful location by ABC’s “Good Morning America”, affords ample opportunity to hike or drive through spectacular dunes. If you spend a week on the Leelanau Peninsula,you'll want to return again and again.

About David Wright or Joan Wright

We purchased the property,after an extensive search and built the home because we always wanted a residence on Lake Michigan.we and two of three adult children use the home extensively,but since we live in the Grand Rapids area,it is at times available to others.

David Wright or Joan Wright purchased this house in 1986

Why David Wright or Joan Wright chose Northern Michigan

Built in 1994 after extensive search for unique Lake Michigan beach front. Almost 3 acre wooded lot that provides seclusion yet close to many activities that would appeal to a wide range of interests.

What makes this house unique

A rare property where a family can unwind from the day to day bustle, and do as little or as much in terms of activities as you choose.

A beautiful, peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely cottage, well stocked with almost everything one could need or want during a stay. It is centrally located to various sites of interest including Northport, Leland, Suttons Bay and further south Glen Arbor and Sleeping Bear dunes. The beach is pristine, the wooded setting serene.

Great week in Leland

  • 5 of 5

This is our 7th year in Leland and we had another great experience. This home was well stocked with everything we needed...including direct access to the beach. It was clean and comfortable and well stocked. Although we had sunny, warm weather all 7 days, strong winds on three of them prevented us from swimming at the house, but the Northport town beach was less than 15 minutes away...and walking distance from ice it was very easy to adjust.

So lovely and private !!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this peaceful and beautiful home for a week the end of June. We were so pleasantly surprised to find everything so well equiped and supplied, plus being so clean and comfortable. This is our 3rd VRBO rental and of the 3 this place has been the most enjoyable. The beach, the sunsets and the quiet, shaded surroundings made for a very enjoyable week.

Absolutely beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented this lovely home for a week in June. The setting is quite private, surrounded by woods and a nice view of Lake Michigan. The sunsets were gorgeous. The house is so well stocked with every thing you need for a comfortable stay. It is very clean and cozy. It was the perfect place to spend the week. We hope to return again next summer.

Idyllic setting!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful wooded and private setting on the shore of Lake Michigan! This home is conveniently located near Leland, Suttons Bay, and nearby wineries and restaurants. With wonderful views of the lake, we were very comfortable, our every need anticipated by the owners. We look forward to a return visit.

very nice home, private setting

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time that my fiancee and I have rented a property in this area through VRBO, and this house exceeded our expectations. The kitchen was well-stocked and had everything we needed. The house was clean, well-maintained, and tucked away on several wooded acres so it is nice and private. The location can't be beat - we were just a short drive from Leland, Suttons Bay, and Northport. Plus, the views of Lake Michigan were beautiful. We enjoyed our walks along the beach in the mornings, very quiet and peaceful. We will be recommending this property to friends and family, and look forward to returning on future visits to Northern Michigan.
