Overview

Northern Michigan House Rental Photos and Description

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 and Jim Robinson

Our family has been vacationing on Lake Leelanau since I was a child in Cincinnati and now as an adult with my own family living in Illinois. We are so happy to have finally realized our dream of owning a beautiful vacation home here and to start creating our own family memories.

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!

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic vacation in Leelanau and it was mostly due to the great accommodations that Beth provides. The house was big and easily accommodated the 8 of us (2 adults and 6 kids). The view from both decks was beautiful. The kids loved all the water toys that came with the house. We rented a pontoon for a few days and the dock accommodated the pontoon nicely. Between the house and the pontoon we really had no reason to ever leave the house. The kitchens were well stocked and we made/ate every meal at the house. While we didn't have any fires we thought it was very nice that the owners had wood available at the house to use. There were plenty of life jackets for the kids. Our expectations were definitely exceeded. I would recommend your home to friends/family who want to vacation in Leelanau.

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience renting a vacation home and it could not have been better. The house is clean, nicely decorated and had plenty of space for the 11 of us. The kitchen is well stocked. If you get up early enough, you get to see the beautiful sunrises from the lovely deck. The kids had fun using the paddle boards and kayaks. We rented a pontoon and used the tubes they provided. "Big Mable" was a big hit. The Leelenau Peninsula is such a great area. The owner was very easy to work with and we would recommend this place highly.

family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Hi Beth,

We had a fabulous vacation at your lovely home--again! We enjoyed all of the accommodations and furnishings of your home both inside and out. Our grandchildren love BIG MABLE and we all enjoyed the kayaks and paddle boards. We are planning for next year and would like the same week in July if possible.

A few things that would improve our stay--better and more air conditioning, a less noisy ice maker, a more effective dishwasher( dishes have to be totally clean before put in dishwasher)

Thank your great communication and letting us enjoy your beautiful home!
