There is a public boat launch on South Lake Leelanau 1/8 mile away. Historic fish town and the National Park's Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes are just a short drive away. There is central air conditioning throughout the home and hot water baseboard heat for the cooler months. Plenty of windows provide cross ventilation, if desired. There are ceiling fans in all three bedrooms with cross ventilation casement windows in the two northern bedrooms. A single set of three casement windows provide light and ventilation in the third bedroom. All beds have high-end Tuft & Needle pressure relief mattresses and bedding is provided. There is one queen-size bed in each of the two north end bedrooms. The third bedroom has one double and one twin size bed. The home is furnished comfortably. There is high-speed internet, both a 42' and a 50' flat screen TV with cable, and a land-line phone. The kitchen appliances are as follows: a 30' electric range with oven, 1.1 cubic foot microwave, toaster oven, 36' side-by-side refrigerator, dishwasher, and a double bowl kitchen sink. Basic cooking and serving utensils are included with service for 12. There is a laundry near the kitchen with a full-size washer, dryer and utility sink. A 16.5 cubic foot refrigerator is in the attached 2-car garage for summertime use. A small bathroom with a shower is on the main floor. On the upper level there is a large bathroom with a double vanity and tub/shower combo. Bath, hand towels, and washcloths are provided. An original wood-burning fireplace offers a focal point while the larger living area surrounding it offers ample space for family gatherings. A 42' flat screen TV with cable is visible from the open living, kitchen, and dining areas. There is seating for six in the dining room and for four on the adjacent bar stools off the kitchen area. The newly remolded lower level entertainment room offers comfortable seating and a 50' flat screen TV with cable. There is a reading area on the east end where one can enjoy seeing the morning sun rise over the natural environment. A sliding door leads to a shaded outdoor sitting area. There is a 24' x 24' two-car attached garage that can be used for cars or, perhaps, small boats. The interior depth is about 23' and is accessed by two 9' x 7' overhead doors with openers. The storage barn on the property is not included. Outdoors, enjoy a private awning-covered dining area on the small deck, a picnic table, a grill, and even a fire pit with a grill and fireside chairs. There are two chaise lounges and chairs for relaxing. While there is no lush green lawn , the grass is kept mowed. There is plenty of open area with sunshine during the summer months. The private property can be hiked (or try snowshoes in season), views of South Lake Leelanau can be discovered, and wildlife can be observed along with undisturbed flora and fauna. This needs to be done with the help of GPS guidance and the recent property survey to respectfully avoid trespassing on the neighboring lands. A copy of the survey can be emailed to you at your request. Please leave the land as you found it. No littering. No fires are allowed other than in the designated fire pit near the house. Please avoid smoking while out on the property to avoid fires and litter. Please pick up after your pets. Boating activities, family outings, day trips, and fishing on Lake Leelanau is readily accommodated with the boat launch just 1/8 mile away. While not promoted, people do swim at the north end of the popular public boat launch site. Swimming is not allowed where the boats are actually launched. Ride bikes, walk the dog, jog, roller blade, or ski on the groomed snow (in season) on the paved TART trail just one mile away. More

The house is very clean, the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to prepare meals. There are lots of comfortable sitting areas to just relax. The owners left us with ample firewood for the fireplace. The house is conveniently located for touring the Leelanau...More
