We are currently seeking multi-week/monthly renters. Located between the charming villages of Northport and Omena on Michigan’s beautiful Leelanau Peninsula, this large and carefully appointed log home is situated directly on the shores of Grand Traverse Bay, with 240 feet of private, sandy beach in a secluded wooded setting. Enjoy blissful days filled with sunning, swimming, boating, beach-combing, outdoor cooking, and spending true quality time with your family and friends. From the Cabin, you will have a perfect view of stunning sunrises over the water each morning, and the colors of the sunset reflecting off the bay on tranquil evenings. The wooded, 5 acre lot provides a sense of pleasant seclusion, screened from neighbors on either side.
This beautiful log home has expansive indoor living spaces with a vaulted ceiling and a magnificent two-story natural stone fireplace. We have redecorated the Cabin with comfortable high quality upholstered furniture appropriate to its rustic style, carefully selected antique pieces, rustic light fixtures, rugs, and curtains custom made with vintage-style fabrics. The great room has sitting areas for gathering around the fire, reading, or, for those who are so inclined, watching satellite TV or DVDs. The adjacent enclosed sunroom has windows on three sides that frame a picture perfect view of the bay and “Gull Island.” The sunroom is furnished with reupholstered antique rattan furniture, and has additional comfortable seating as well as a game table for puzzles and board games. The sunroom opens to an outdoor deck on the bay side, and has tables for outdoor dining with a spectacular view. We provide two grills, one gas and one charcoal, for your outdoor cooking and dining needs.
A recently remodeled kitchen features custom-built and hand-painted cabinets with wrought iron hardware and fir counter-tops, along with a butcher block island. It has a five-burner gas range, and a dishwasher. Like the rest of the house, the kitchen is lighted with electrified wall and hanging lanterns, and decorated with vintage collectables. The adjacent pantry houses the refrigerator, and a high-efficiency washer and dryer. The kitchen is fully equipped with numerous small appliances, colorful dinnerware for indoors and out, and quality cookware for preparing and serving gourmet meals for a large gathering. The spacious dining area has a 9-foot farmhouse table which seats 10-12, and a rustic buffet. Additional seating is available at the nearby gate-leg table in the adjacent living room.
With four bedrooms including a large bunkroom, the home sleeps up to 14 people very comfortably, and is perfect for a large or extended family, or several smaller families. The spacious master bedroom, which is on the main floor of the Cabin, has a queen sized bed and a view of the lake. It has a private bath with a tub/shower combination, and was recently remodeled with slate floors, subway and pebble tile, a custom built cedar vanity, and all new plumbing and fixtures. Two additional bedrooms on the ground floor each have double beds, and share a second full bath, also recently renovated. Upstairs is a large bunkroom that sleeps eight. It is furnished with hand crafted rustic cedar log furniture, and has colorful quilts and curtains with a north woods theme. The bunkroom features colorful vintage style flooring and a half bath.
The Cabin is located on a beautiful beach, complete with a dock. With a gradual slope and crystal clear water, the beach is an ideal place for children to safely enjoy the beach and lake. There is also a volleyball net and hammock in the large yard. Beach chairs, beach towels, and 2 kayaks (one is a tandem) for exploring the bay are provided. The sandy cove invites long strolls in search of Petoskey stones and other treasures. An outdoor enclosed shower makes for a perfect end to a day on the beach.
