Overview

Northern Michigan House Rental Photos and Description

Prime Private Lake Michigan Waterfront! 5 Bedrooms (sleeps 12)

Good Harbor Bay Estate is located just 3 miles south of historic Leland with direct frontage on America's most beautiful beach (Good Morning America 2012). The white sandy beach stretches into 37 miles of Sleeping Bear National Park, with ample opportunity for hiking, swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding and eagle sightings. It has breathtaking sunset views of both South and North Manitou islands as well as Pyramid Point. Right across from the lighthouse (crib) between the Manitou islands.

The estate has gorgeous private Lake Michigan water frontage and is the perfect setting for large family gatherings as well as small romantic getaways and special anniversaries. It includes 5 bedrooms, 3.5 bath, private TV Room, cathedral ceiling living room with large fireplace, dining room/wet bar, stainless steel gourmet kitchen with wine cooler, a wonderful screened porch, upper and lower decks, outdoor shower, lower level play room/gym. The estate has free wireless high-speed internet, cable TV and free nationwide calling. The spectacular sunsets and awesome views all the way from Pyramid Point to Whaleback along with the sandy beach invite you to use our kayaks and stand-up paddle boards (both included), make a campfire by the beach or simply sit, rejuvenate and enjoy this peaceful setting.

While the Estate is nestled into a very secluded frontage, it is in close proximity to restaurants, historic sites, the Traverse City Film fest, golfing and shopping. Leelanau County is known for its extensive and beautiful road-biking routes, wine-tours, boating and hiking.

Sorry, absolutely no smoking please. Not zoned for weddings.

Beautiful beach retreat.

  • 5 of 5

I don't usually write reviews but the house and owners were so nice that I feel compelled to say something. The house is gorgeous, very clean, and well maintained. We were met by the owner upon arrival for a walk through of the property. We had plenty of space for our group families and when we had questions the owners were very attentive. They even went out and got us a coffee bean grinder! We had a great time playing on the beach and paddling in the water. Two of the families came all the way from California and could not believe how beautiful it was. The Leelanau Peninsula might be my favorite place!

This is the best vacation home we have stayed in in Michigan in 25 years. It is lovely.

  • 5 of 5

We had quick communication from the owners after renting. They live next door to the property and were easy to access if we needed them, but never intruded our privacy. The home is large and with anything you could need. We vacationed the first week of June and were fearful that we would not be in the water due to cold. With the available paddle boards and kayaks, we were in the water every day. We also had fires at the beach in the fire pit almost every night. The small town nearby offered everything we needed for the week. It was very relaxing, which is what we needed.

Amazing experience!!!!

This home is beautiful, well maintained, clean and so welcoming. The owners were so kind and did so much to make our visit the best experience I have ever had. They made us all feel so welcomed, I can't thank them enough. I would love to come back and spend more time here, the very best experience for sure. Thank you again for everything.

Beautiful house, stunning location, lovely hosts.

  • 5 of 5

This property is simply beautiful. The house is modern and open, but feels comfortable and cozy. It is absolutely spotless and perfectly maintained. Plenty of outdoor space on the beach and two decks as well as excellent views of the lake from inside as well. The owners are very attentive, and couldn't be nicer or more considerate. Needless to say, we highly recommend it!

Lake Michigan Beach Front Beauty

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful, big open rooms and picturesque views from every window. The great room was the perfect gathering spot for us with its over sized, comfy couches and inviting wood burning fire place. Nothing was missing from the kitchen, everything we needed to prep and serve our meals. The beach, however, is the pure treasure of this property. Beautiful, endless sandy loveliness and breathtaking sunsets.. The setting for this home is so peaceful and quiet, we all rested well ;o) It's set back from the road on a nice wooded lot with nature all around. Owners were on site to greet us and are very friendly. We arrived when the weather took a chilly turn, but that didn't stop us from visiting close by towns and lighthouses. We will definitely return to this lovely vacation home. We had a wonderful stay.
