Located 1 mile from Northport shops and eateries and just 30 miles from SLEEPING BEAR DUNES enjoy this FANTASTIC, CONVENIENT, QUIET, 120’ of PRIVATE WATERFRONT directly on Northport Bay. If you are looking for a clean, comfortable, nicely designed home – look no further. This renovated home on Northport Bay is just a 10 minute bike or walk to town. We have several bikes available for our guests. Nestled among the Cedar trees, our home is ideal for a family or shared family vacation retreat. The dead-end road is great for kids to ride bikes, roller blades or skate board. Because there are no dunes or bluffs, our home offers direct, private, and FULL water access and fun to play. It's easy to watch kids from the house or deck. Just 55' to the beach and shore - it's that close!

We are able to offer our home on a year-round basis with both heat and central air conditioning. An OFF-SHORE MOORING is available and can accommodate a 30' boat. The home includes a 5 person paddle boat for your use to enjoy the bay or provide transportation to the mooring! Don't have a boat? There are nearby rentals to deliver boats, kayaks, or water toys right to the shore or house.

Enjoy your 'Up North' getaway with all the comforts of home. Wall to wall carpet in the main rooms and bedrooms plus each bedroom boasts newer beds and linens. Two bedrooms are private and include queen beds while a loft/dorm like space is ideal for kids or a family and sleeps 4 twins and 1 queen bed for a total of 10 in beds. The master bedroom includes a master bath with large walk in shower. The main bath includes a tub and shower. The outdoor shower includes a privacy curtain and hand sprayer. If you've never experienced an outdoor shower, you won't want to miss this, it's truly special!

The stainless appliances make your cooking and cleanup a breeze. The great room provides a large table to accommodate up to 12 people and an additional table for up to 4 plus outdoor dining on the adjacent deck. Between the home and the water is another deck level, sand area and outdoor fire ring.

There are no dunes to climb making for easy access to the water front. Check out the water mat, it's similar to a trampoline but on the water like a magic carpet. Bring your watershoes for more comfort along the waters edge and for walking the shore.

Northport is a quaint waterfront town with boat launch, marina, shopping, hiking and more. The village is conveniently located at the tip of the peninsula making it convenient to visit neighboring Leland, Sutton’s Bay, Glen Lake, Sleeping Bear Dunes, and just a 30 minute trip to Traverse City for the annual Film Festival or Cherry Festival. There are many benefits to spending your vacation on the bay vs. on Lake Michigan. If you enjoy the water, you’ll love the calm and relative warmth of the bay. We welcome you to our home and hope that you enjoy your vacation in Leelanau County.

A great Girl Scout campfire tip - recycle your old egg cartons, prefer cardboard, and lint from the dryer plus your half used candles. Using an old kettle as double boiler with another sturdy pan or other open mouth kettle, fill the pot half way with water and place the kettle in the water. Fill the kettle with your old candles and melt them down. Place the lint in the openings of the egg cartons. Then pour the hot melted wax over the lint. Lint, wax, and cardboard are outstanding firestarters for your campfire! I keep my recycled egg cartons next to my dryer and fill them weekly. I usually wait until I have half dozen or so before I melt wax and make the starters.

Enjoy your campfire!

Meet The Host

We discovered Northport in the early 80's and found it to be one of the most picturesque and relaxing places around. After years of visiting we made the decision to purchase our own home. Though it's a long drive for us, we find it to be worth every minute. The quaint village of Northport and neighboring towns are perfect for our family and friends. This is a great escape from the hectic city life of Chicago.
Our location is perfect. We have just the right balance of proximity to town while also enjoying the seclusion of being nestled in the trees. After spending time in other areas, we appreciate being able to use the water and not worry about currents or waves. Calm, peaceful, safe, friendly, and just simply beautiful!
