About Richard R. Roberts

After visiting Leland several times over the last 20 years, my wife and I decided this area was the best place to raise our family. We moved here from Ann Arbor in 2003 with two boys( 1 year old and 3 year old), two goldens and no great plan. We still have no great plan but there is no better place for two boys to run and play. Meanwhile, the parents get to appreciate the beauty of the lakes, sunsets, beaches, and nature that surrounds this area. I have visited every state except Hawaii and there is no place quite like Leland.

Richard R. Roberts purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Richard R. Roberts chose Northern Michigan

As long as Leland has been a village the Harbor House has serviced the community. Since 1863, the building has changed occupants over the past 150 years from a Post Office, Meat Market, Grocery Store, Hardware, Retail and Ice Cream. Surprisingly, over the last 100 years the building has only had 5 owners. The History of Leland goes hand and hand with the Harbor House and preserving, owning, maintaining and being a part of this history has been my pleasure and joy.

What makes this apartment unique

Very close proximity to the Public Beaches; Historic Fishtown is directly across the street from your front door, The Harbor is barely 100 yards away and you could spend your entire week in this rental without ever having to move your car. Grocery Store, Fine Dining, Family Dining, Charter Fishing, Specialty Retail Shopping, Sugar Sand Beaches are all within a couple minute walk right outside your door. It would take longer to drive to any of these wonderful places than it would to walk.

Fantastic location, competitive prices and very CLEAN unit. This apartment is located steps away from everything Leland has to offer including the beach and a short drive to premiere restaurants. We will definitely return without hesitation.

Perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Great location! Comfortable rooms, off street parking spot. Clean. This apartment is larger than it appears to be in photos. Hopefully it's available the next time we visit Leland.

Owner's Response: Hi Rusty, Thank you for your feedback. I am glad you had a nice stay. I think I need to look at the pictures. The space is 1,000 square feet and I don't want that appear smaller in the photos. I hope you can make it back soon! Thanks, rrr

Perfect Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Sometimes when things don't go exactly as planned, you realize how great a lodging place really is. Mechanical issues happen in everyone's house, and there was a minor problem with the heating system when we arrived. An astoundingly rapid response from the owner, who had a repair company out promptly to fix the problem and later compensate us. Incredibly kind owner who called to followup with us and make sure everything went well. The place was impeccably clean, comfortable, and literally perfect for our family. A few steps down the stairs and we were right in the middle of the adorable town. Our girls were quite excited about the ice cream shop right downstairs too. If you've never been to Leland, it is in an unbeatable fall weekend destination. This particular lodging option would be fantastic during any time of the year, as we are planning a winter get away back to this same place. You will not be disappointed here!

Location, Location, Location!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this rental last fall with friends. It is in the perfect location (right downtown!) The unit itself is in excellent condition, and is fully equipped with everything you need including a coffeemaker and kitchen utensils. The general store is right down the street so we were able to make a lot of our meals in the apartment and save money for wine tasting and going out. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone staying in the area!
