    About this property

    Beautiful Family House on the Lake

    This family lakefront property has been in the Stanton family for four generations. The original log cabin was replaced in the early 1980s by an architect designed spacious house that can comfortably hold a crowd or be intimate enough for a small group. It is situated on a large lakefront lot on the eastern shore of North Lake Leelanau with private woods to the south and deck overlooking the lake. The sunsets are breathtaking. This house provides easy access to the water with a long pier and unique recreational dock with boat lift. Boat launch is just 1/2 a mile down the road from the house. We also enjoy the only private marina on the lake so guests can easily dock their boats, ski-dos or a pontoon boat (available for rental in Lake Leelanau). The lakefront area is safe and easy for swimming and the water is crystal clear. There is no sandy beach at our site, but Nedow's Beach is reachable by boat right across the lake. Sunny rear patio is great for windy days and is off the kitchen for easy outdoor cooking. There is a fire pit for lakefront campfires. The house includes: a large, comfortable master bedroom with private bath. Guest bedroom with two twin beds and semi-private full bath. And two great bunk rooms with eight twin beds total and a full bath. LARGE lake viewing living/dining room with seating for LOTS of people inside, not including all the outside areas for BBQ. The sunsets from the house are unimaginable. The house is set up with quiet and social zones so kids and adults can enjoy the house and not be on top of each other. The Lake House is a one of a kind place that is rarely available for rental. You'll love it. We do. Keywords: Lake house, vacation house, family house,

      Total paradise

      We loved staying here over LDW! Great for large groups or multiple families. Very pet and family friendly. Incredible location right on Lake Leelanau- turquoise water right outside with excellent lake access (beach and docks). We loved the entertaining spaces outside- multiple decks, bonfire pit. The sunsets from the house were so great! The house is spacious with plenty of room inside for our group- two living spaces, the guys loved the pool table. Very clean and well appointed with everything we needed. The location was perfect- close to Leeland and plenty of up north wineries. The house was very private and secluded from neighbors and set back from the main road. This part of the lake is gorgeous, clear water and sandy bottom. The property owner was very responsive to all our questions and made the process very easy. We will be back again!

      4/5 Good

        Great location, large house with plenty of room

        The family has been expanding this house for a couple generations. It’s a great layout, checkout other reviews for room details. They’ve done a good job respecting the landscape. Plenty of outdoor entertainment room, dock, etc. very peaceful location. Fully stocked with everything except your food.

        5/5 Excellent

          Love this cottage!

          This is our second rental of this cottage on the north end of Lake Leelanau where my family had a cottage for over 50 years. This cottage has a great layout for numerous guests, a large deck both at the cottage and down on the water which gives everyone the space they need. The rooms are spacious and the decor is exactly how it should be for a lakeside cottage. We love coming up here and will continue to do so!

          5/5 Excellent

            Perfect location for a family summer vacation

            As others have said in their reviews, this house is much larger than the pictures suggest. There is a master bedroom with a queen bed, another bedroom with two twins, and two bedrooms each with two bunk beds (making 4 beds per bunk-bed room). The common rooms are large, the pool table is great, and the kitchen is just fine for family meals. The deck/dock are awesome, and the sunsets are gorgeous. We rented a boat during our time there and loved every minute of lakefront life. The kids were able to catch perch off the dock, and we enjoyed s'mores over the bonfire every night. Very close to anything you might need (Sutton's Bay for pharmacy, restaurants, groceries), hiking, Sleeping Bear Dunes, wineries, etc. Highly recommend. We had 5 adults and 4 kids and was perfect for us.

              Amazing vacation home

              Gorgeous home - couldn’t imagine anything better. Location was incredible, plenty of space for the whole crew to spread out. Pictures don’t do this place justice... It’s huge, and right on the water.
