Windy Hill Lookout-Leland/Lk Leelanau

Guest Rating:

Vacation rental cottage. Sleeps 8, 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms. Dogs allowed.

Lake Leelanau, MI 49653 United States

Talk about getting away from it all! Perched high on a hilltop, Windy Hill Lookout offers you breathtaking panoramic views of Lake Michigan. This is a "you have to be here to experience it" location. Located less than 2 miles from Good Harbor Beach (one of the most beautiful beaches in Michigan). You will never want to leave this "once in a life time" vacation spot. Super charming! 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms. 3 level home. Sleeps 8.

Plenty of windows to welcome nature into the home. The upper level has 2 bedrooms with queens in each room. The main floor features a living room with TV, full kitchen (no dishwasher) and dining area. The lower level features a queen bed in an open-concept bedroom/living space (with TV) and a small bedroom with bunk beds. Washer/dryer. WiFi.

This natural setting provides you with peaceful surroundings. There are so many places to relax outdoors. On the lower terrace is a nicely shaded patio area. The home also features a deck that wraps around 2 sides. Take a walk in the woods and do some exploring. 10 acres surround this home. Perhaps you will spot an eagle, deer, or a fox! Dozens of species of birds. Stunning sunsets. Charcoal grill. Due to the location of this home, outdoor fires are not allowed.

This area is located between Leland (to the north) and Glen Arbor (to the south) off of M-22. Little Traverse Lake is about 5 minutes away. The village of Lake Leelanau is just 10 minutes away. Sleeping Bear Dunes are an easy drive. For finer dining, make a trip to one of the many lakeside towns and villages that surround this area. Plenty of "out of the way" places to shop and treasure hunt. If nature is your thing, hiking trails abound. There are miles of beach, miles of trails, and endless memories to be made.

Your well-mannered pet is welcome. No A/C, but fans are provided. No smoking. Sheets and towels are provided. No smoking.

Will consider short stays during any season. Prime Summer weekly Sunday-Sunday. Arrival and/or departure date must back up to existing reservations and/or begin/end on a Sunday.

Review 2016: Elizabeth Burgos- I just got back from my 4th of July weekend and I loved it here at "Windy Hill Lookout" and I feel the pictures of house were nice but in person.......it was better than I already knew it was!! I felt comfortable and it was very clean! Beautiful views, big and airy! It was perfect!! I did not want to do any outside activities because I just loved being in the house!

    a guest from East Lyme, CT recommends this vacation rental

    We rented this property for a mini family renunion (3 couples). The location of the house is excellent and the views from the deck are awesome. The condition of the property is pretty good, but somewhat rustic for the price. The basement (two of the bedrooms) in particular could use some work as it is only semi-finished. The kitchen is very nice and well-stocked with all necessary equipment. The access to the property is via a terrible, rutted, hilly road which desperately needs to be repaired.

      Thank you for staying at Windy Hill and we appreciate your feedback. We feel part of the charm of Windy Hill is that it is rustic. It is clean and well maintained so we encourage our guests to enjoy this feature of the home. The owners are addressing the road. We had heavy rains through the summer and with a sloping driveway the rain washed it away and in turn causes rutting. Unfortunately these are things that cannot be addressed immediately as an excavator has to do the repairs. Look forward to next year and a smoother drive up the hill.

    John O from Holt, MI recommends this vacation rental

    We spent about one week at gusty. Everything was amazing. House was in great order. The sunsets over Good Bay Harbor were unbelievable. Bring your camera, you won't be sorry. Great location, 30 minutes to just about any great point of interest. Leland, Traverse City, Empire, and Suttons Bay. Definitely made memories that will last forever.

    Dale F from BELLEVILLE, MI recommends this vacation rental

    Overall a very nice experience. The location and solitude were just as I had hoped.
    There were a scarcity of some minor amenities that I have been used to having in rental properties....wash cloths, dish towels, tissues, spray cleaner, but these were easily acquired.
    It is a very good location for the Leelanau peninsula with only Benzonia a relatively longish drive

    • Manager Responded on 10/30/2017

      Thank you for your review and staying at Windy Hill. We do stock many items at the house such as wash clothes and dish towels. We do not supply tissues and spray cleaners however. We hope you will visit this wonderful location in the future.

    Good place to camp out for long weekend. Hard to find places that take pets! Basement bedroom a bit musty, but overall, a great experience!

      We are thrilled you had a great stay, and we will check the downstairs bedroom! Come back and see us again soon.

    Absolutely perfect! Everything was as we expected and better.the view was the best. The cabin was roomy and cozy at the same time. Very comfortable and clean. A little stressful to be out by 10 a.m. but we did it!
