Space 3,500 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedroom plus convertible beds, 2 Baths ( Sleeps 10-12)

Beautiful year round ( non-smoking) lake house on South Lake Leelanau close to Leelanau, Leland and Suttons Bay. Bright, sunny views and sandy bottom for swimming. 100 feet of lakefront space and just 45 feet from the water.

Located 25 minutes from the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes and National Lake Shore Park that was voted The Most Beautiful Place in America in 2011, this summer home is roomy, clean, comfortable, well equipped, well maintained. It has two floors for living with two complete kitchens that would make a perfect retreat for two families vacationing together. Multiple balconies and patio areas lets you spread out and entertain family and friends. The house is designed so that the lake is visible from most of the first and second floor rooms; the upper level kitchen, living and dining rooms, the lower level master bedroom, family room and rec room. Rooms on the lower floor open to the patios which also allows great water views and shade. To enjoy the lakefront, just slide open the glass door in the dining room or family room, move to the deck and down to the lawn and venture out into the water with its sandy bottom. The lake is shallow a good distance out making this a great area for supervising children's summer fun.

There is a beautiful dock to which you can moor your boat or jet ski. It could also be a great place to soak up the warm summer sun.

Lazy days in the sun, swimming, fishing, and boating move to evenings by the fire watching the sunset. This is the perfect setting to enjoy family time, to relax, to laugh and to play together. You are centrally located to explore the many attractions that surround you.

Keywords: A roomy 4 bedroom, 2 full bathroom home that sits a few steps from the water's edge of Lake Leelanau.

About Beth Robinson

Beth Robinson purchased this house in 2012

Why Beth Robinson chose Northern Michigan

Great home for young and old

  • 5 of 5

We vacation in the Leelanau Pennisula every summer and have stayed at quite a few different homes. We usually do not like to "rerent" because we like to explore the area. However this home has become our destination from now on. We had 13 people ranging from age 86 to 6. And everyone had a wonderful time. The only downfall is the issues with the water pressure. We were able to work it out but our showers in the AM took a little longer than we planned. And we learned to run the dishwasher and washer when there was not water in demand somewhere else. Hopefully this will be a little better when we come next time. The house itself was absolutely beautiful, clean, and soooo roomy. All kinds of places for everyone to find a spot. The decks and lawn afford a beautiful view of the lake. Both kitchens were well appointed. And the house was very very clean. Thank you to the Robinson's for such a wonderful stay.

Lake Leelanau Lake ahome

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this lake home and were truly impressed with the accommodations. The place was clean, well equipped and spacious. The front lot on Lake Leelanau offered room to play games (bocce ball, corn hole etc) and good for small children. The dock offered us plenty of options to moor a rented pontoon and jet ski. I would recommend this home for parties up to 12 and will definitely be back again.

Beautiful, sunny house with great amenities

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at this house. We've tried several in the area and this is our favorite. It has a great location right on the lake. The house is very bright, sunny and large, and was simply and beautifully decorated. There was plenty of room for our two families (11 people in total). We especially appreciated the nice touches of having beach towels on hand, a bundle of wood to toast our s'mores, and various board games around the house. (The kids fell in love with Battleship all over again)! We also really appreciated the use of the kayaks and paddle boards. The beds were very comfortable, which isn't always the case with rental properties. We would definitely rent this house again. The location was great too - it's close to Leland, Glen Arbor and Sutton's Bay.

40th Anniversary Family Celebration

  • 5 of 5

We chose to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary with our children, their spouses and grandchildren at your beautiful home on Lake Leelanau. The weather was absolutely beautiful and we truly enjoyed our stay. The house is large enough to accomodate everyone for a large group meal, yet there are many areas to provide private space when desired. (For rocking a tired baby, for example!) The location is perfect for both enjoying kayak rides, fishing, paddle boards and family time spent playing outdoor games, teaching the "grands" the finer points of S'mores making, card playing and family down time enjoying Wimbledon and kids' movies on TV. We did several day trips to Suttons Bay, Glen Arbor, Northport, Leland, and Traverse City during our stay and included hiking, the beach, biking, shopping and sightseeing at the Grand Traverse Lighthouse and Sleeping Bear Dunes. The adult "kids" enjoyed a trip to Hop Lots and checked out Dick's Pour House one evening. We also went as a group to eat at Boonedocks in Glen Arbor and Village Inn Restaurant in Suttons Bay. We enjoyed cooking family meals in the beautiful and well furnished kitchen and also grilling on the deck. We had a wonderful time and were very impressed with the home. It is lovely and clean from top to bottom and a lot of thought and care went into the decorating. When Saturday rolled around, we hated to leave! We would rent this property again in a heartbeat!

Superb Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful rental served as the main gathering place for our annual family reunion. It is beautifully furnished, with all provisions needed, even when preparing and serving a meal to 30 people! The owners are very responsive to any questions. The location on Lake Leelanau is excellent, and kayaks and paddle boards provided were well utilized. We are definitely interested in renting this property again.

Beautiful Home; Ideal for a Family Vacation on the Lake!

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything we hoped for and more. We absolutely love Leelanau, and wanted to find a clean and spacious house on the lake for our family and friends - and this was exactly that! We had 12 people sleeping here, and there was no problem fitting us all. The 3 different living rooms allowed us to spread out without being in each other's hair. The house is well appointed, and beautifully decorated. The decks, yard and docks are wonderful as well. We rented a pontoon for the week, and the dock provided us a perfect place to keep it. Furthermore, the provided kayaks, paddle boards and tubes were such a nice amenity!

The location is perfect as well. We were within 10 minutes of more than 10 wineries, 2 breweries and dozens of restaurants. We were also within 10 minutes of Leland and Suttons Bay (two of the best towns in the state), and within 25 minutes of Glen Arbor and North Port. We spent many mornings biking and running on the beautiful roads around the home, and many afternoons sunbathing by the water.

In terms of the house itself, it was very well stocked! The kitchen had plenty of trash bags, paper towel, pots, pans, plates, etc. There were tons of towels, as well as availability of washer/dryer to do laundry. If we had one comment it would be that the water pressure is rather low, and you'll have to be careful not to run the dishwasher / laundry when you want to shower. But in our opinion, that is completely manageable!

Lastly, the owner was incredibly responsive and attentive. We emailed multiple times before and during our stay with questions, and she would always respond within the hour!

If you are heading to Leelanau, this is the place to stay! We will definitely plan to stay here again!
