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.

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.

Beautiful and relaxing! Owners were so helpful and really made our stay a wonderful getaway!
We enjoyed the beautiful views and the relaxing atmosphere. The house was so comfortable and a wonderful getaway for our family. Our 11 year old daughter especially enjoyed playing ping pong and darts in the entertainment room. Lots of games as well.
We especially enjoyed relaxing by the fireplace as we enjoyed the beautiful view of Lake Michigan! Definitely will plan to return!
Second stay, even better than the first.
We feel extremely fortunate to have found such supremely thoughtful hosts with such a wonderful and comfortable property in such a beautiful place. They obviously take great care .in providing the best experience; it seems they have thought of everything a group might need and maintain the property to the highest standard. We look forward to our next visit.
Once again a glorious week!
This was our third year at what we call The Big House. We came this time in October to see the leaf change which is a little late this year, but still we had fabulous weather and enjoyed the beauties of the house and of Leelanau. We hiked all of our favorite trails at the Sleeping Bear Lakeshore as well as Cathead Bay and even enjoyed a swim one day. The house and its owners are so welcoming. You can’t do better for comfort and the most spectacular sunsets on Lake Michigan.
everything was perfect
The house was exceptional, the view of Lake Michigan was beautiful, the owners thought of everything you could need for a 5 star stay.
More than 5 stars!!! Overall amazing!!!
The best and cleanest property you will ever find!! Everything was perfect. The views were spectacular and the owners were wonderful. Will definitely return.
WOW!!!! This is a GREAT place!!!
It's hard to describe how we felt when we arrived - multiple family members came in separately and comments were - "OMG - we hit the jackpot!" and "Oh my-this is gorgeous!" and "What a beautiful place". Then as we settled in...."this place is so clean" , "look at that view", "right on the water and not even one cobweb in the entire home" were the comments. The home is wonderful & very clean, the owners, Arndt & Tanja are very friendly and helpful, the beach is private, the area is perfect, the home décor is lovely, the towels are plentiful, the kitchen fully stocked, - there was only one drawback - we had to leave :(
We were very lucky with the weather in late September so we had fires on the beach, we kayaked, we paddle boarded, we swam, we visited wineries and we looked forward to returning back to see the beautiful sunsets. It is a trip that will remain a highlight for our family forever.
The owners are there when you need them and discreetly hidden the rest of the time. We are really hoping to be able to return next year!!!
Arndt & Tanja - thank you for being such wonderful hosts!
