    About this property

    Sleeping Bear Dunes Lakeshore; Perfect for Children and Adults

    Lakefront vacation home with kitchen and patio
    South Shore House is a charming (2600 sq ft) farm house situated in the heart of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. With over 100 feet of private frontage on Little Traverse Lake, our house is perfect for both children and adults. The lake stays shallow for awhile, and deepens for swimming, fishing, and kayaking further out. The beach area has a fire pit, outdoor chaise lounge chairs, dock, and hammock under the fragrant pines. There is a large grassy area, ideal for volleyball, croquet, and other activities. The quiet lake has different aspects with much to discover including beautiful sunset views and shooting stars. Our home is well-appointed and very family-friendly - room enough for several couples, or two families, or an extended family. There is plenty of room for everyone to cook and eat together, find spaces to nap, read a book, play games, listen to music, or just take in the beautiful surroundings. There are five bedrooms, three full baths, a laundry room, open floor plan, cable TV, high speed broadband wireless, fully equipped kitchen, large deck, and a gas grill. Bedrooms: The Master Suite on the main floor is spacious, with a queen-sized four poster bed, private bath with Jacuzzi tub, walk-in closet, and sitting area. [sleeps 2] The Mission Room has mission-style furniture, including a queen-sized bed, rocker, dresser, with beautiful views of the lake. [sleeps 2] The Library has built in shelves loaded with books and games, closet, dresser, and a queen-size bed. [sleeps 2] The Bunk Room has a single bed, and a bunk bed with a single mattress on top and double on the bottom. The bottom bunk can be used as a sofa or bed. [sleeps 2-4] The Lookout Room is the perfect place for one. Equipped with a single bed, wardrobe and dressing table…and a lovely view of the lake. [sleeps 1] The upstairs rooms share a hallway bathroom. There is a third full bathroom downstairs off the lake entryway, laundry room, kitchen area. South Shore House is a stone's throw (50 yards) from Market 22 (deli, cafe, convenience store, market) and The Ugly Tomato (luscious heirloom tomatoes and local produce from a fifth-generation Leelanau farmer). We are surrounded by over 70,000 acres of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore offering some of the most pristine views in the world.

    5/5 Excellent

      Well supplied

      This house had all the things we needed. We had 5 little boys 9yo to 3 yo with us. Between the sand and the paddle boards we had a great time. Lots of hiking and two restaurants close by. We have never been to Michigan before so we weren’t expecting the expensive groceries,l. If your trying to save $ I’d go grocery shopping at the Walmart in Traverse city (~30 minutes away) bs Glen Arbor. Glen Arbor and Leland (sp?) were both cute little towns near by. Little Traverse lake was so still in the mornings it was like glass. So beautiful. The house was cute and like I said fully loaded. I was glad to see it had a crockpot. Plenty of dishes. No cable but we brought our Firestick and there was an Apple TV that we could sign into Netflix with. So that worked for the kids. Also no air conditioning, but I didn’t think it was needed. Fans it every room and cooler because of the lake right there. Overall we really enjoyed this adorable house!! Mike was so fast at responding to all our emails even while we were there during the week! He was great.
