About the property

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.

The perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we have stayed at 220 Manitou Trail. The house is perfect for our multi generational family, with enough space to enjoy each others company, or have a spot to yourself. We love that the property is well maintained and clean inside. We enjoyed the beach all week, especially the kayaks and paddle board that are provided. Shopping in Leland is just 3 miles down the road, and you can make a day of touring the numerous wineries in the area. Add in the great places to dine on the water with the great weather we had in September, and it's hard to beat this location. The owners are right next door if you need them, but nearly invisible if you don't. Just the sunsets alone make it worth the stay... I would highly recommend this property!

My family ranging in age from 1 to 60 all enjoyed ourselves. Plenty of kayaks and outdoor and indoor spaces. Near town and national park when not at home . Our host greeted us on arrival and departure and promptly called us if we had any questions . Beds were comfortable and plenty of games for the grandkids to enjoy .

Hosts Arndt and Tanja thought of everything. Fully stocked, comfortable, beautifully decorated home. Everything you need is here! Plenty of beach chairs, beach umbrellas, pit for beach fires, kayaks and SUP boards...grill and fully stocked kitchen for cooking. Everything we needed was right at our fingertips! Sunsets were amazing, views spectacular. Hosts were helpful and available for questions. Very gracious. Could not have made a better choice!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We've been going up to Leland with friends and kids for years, and stayed at another place on Good Harbor Bay. This was our first time staying in a big house with three other couples. Could not have been better! Everything was great. We didn't have any kids staying with us, but there was plenty of room in the downstairs "bunk room" if needed, and games & toys galore. The beach was wonderful, lots of chairs, umbrellas, etc., and lots of kayaks too. We cooked in a couple nights and had plenty of utensils, plates, etc. We ate on the screened porch for lunch & dinner. Bedrooms, baths were all comfortable. Lots of towels. Everything was clean and well cared for. Deck was to die for and views spectacular, just what we love. We will be back : )
