The beautiful Leelanau Peninsula is the setting for this exclusive 3-acre Lake Michigan property with 300 feet of the finest shoreline, a spacious beach, and pristine sand dunes. Located between Leland and Cathead Bay, it's a 5-minute drive into the quaint village of Northport or just 20 minutes to Leland or Suttons Bay where you can try your luck at the Leelanau Sands Casino. You're also not far from Traverse City, the "Cherry Capital of the World" and home of the National Cherry Festival, which attracts 500,000 visitors to the 8 day celebration every July.
This 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom home is perfect for multi-generational family vacations. Endless options for entertainment abound for the young and old alike: swimming, building sand castles, bonfires & toasting marshmallows, long walks on the beach, hunting for Petoskey stones, sailing, boating, fishing, visiting the Kehl Lake Nature Preserve or the Lighthouse & Museum at the Leelanau State Park and many other possibilities, among them just relaxing on the beach with a great book!
As the day winds down take in the spectacular sunset over Lake Michigan, then head down to the beach to toast marshmallows while you gaze up at the star filled night sky. Away from the city lights the sky comes alive with thousands of twinkling stars, and occasionally the Northern Lights will also be visible.

An eight ft. pine farmhouse table comfortably seats 10 people, or squeeze a few more in at the corners. Fully equipped kitchen with microwave & dishwasher.
