    We first came to this part of Michigan about 25 years ago when the kids (we have 8, 5 boys 3 girls) were much younger. Now we are bringing kids and grand children. It is nice to just sit and enjoy their fun up here. Weather was perfect (Cincinnati had heat index in the 100's) Water was crystal clear as was the sky. We both noticed how quiet it is up here, but we live about 1/2 mile from a hospital with Air Care.

    Me and my friends had a really great time, everyone loved the backyard. The only problem we had was the toilet flush was not working at times which was a little frustration.

    Mary Z from Ypsilanti, MI recommends this vacation rental

    Stayed for 2 weeks in August 2015 and thoroughly enjoyed it. Having family in the immediate area and loving the lake all my life, it was easy to choose this cottage. The dock needs to be replaced though, with a wider ladder attached about 1/2 way out. And it could use another floor lamp or two in the living room area as the decor and walls are quite dark.

    Had a great week at the cottage. It is in a great location - nice water frontage, sandy bottom swimming area, close to Leland and Sutton's Bay. It had everything we needed for a good week. Only complaint was when it rained the roof had numerous leaks. Were told by the cleaning people that the roof was being replaced the week after we were leaving.

    We have nothing but good things to say about our experience at Nature's Nautical. The cottage was exactly as presented and more spacious than we had expected. Great location, lots of privacy and easy drive to other resort towns and of course Lake Michigan. We would come back in a heartbeat!

    a guest from Kalamazoo, MI recommends this vacation rental

    Although the dock was out of the water, only because we booked late into the season, the location is perfect. The water is beautiful, sunsets are spectacular. 20 minutes from Leland, also known as fish town. If you are fisherman, the lake is loaded with Walleye, Perch, Pike, etc. If not, buy fresh off the dock in Leland. We rented a pontoon on the lake near the narrows and we bought bait at the same place. I was able to teach my Goldendoodle how to swim because the only water he has ever really seen is a bathtub, so you can imagine what a big bathtub a 19/20 mile lake looks like to a dog who is just a year old. The cottage is rustic but has everything you need. Beds are comfortable. Linens were fresh. The grill could use a bit of updating because it's a bit wobbly. But I had a glass of wine while I was cooking so it could have been operator error. (Humor) We had the best time Lake Leelanau, the lake frontage is substantial.

    • Manager Responded on 9/20/2012

      Thank you for your review. Yes we do have spiders on many waterfront homes. We do have this home sprayed at the beginning of the season to help repel. It is part of living in the northland. :) We will continue to work on this however.

    We have been vacationing in Lake Leelanau for 17 years and this was one of the best experiences we have had. The cottage was the perfect size with 3 bedrooms, the furniture was in excellent condition, the beds were comfortable and the surrounding yard was so wonderful for family games. Thanks again for sharing your wonderful cottage with us!

    Robert L from Polos Hgts., IL recommends this vacation rental

    The vacation cottage was very nice and an overall great experience for us.

    There were a few minor issues that would have otherwise made it perfect.

    1. There was a room with 3 sets of bunk beds that our kids (ages 5 & 7) were especially excited to sleep on the top bunk of. We actually let them choose the property and it was one of the main features they were excited about. The room in the cottage that the beds were in was a very rough addition with an exposed, saddled roof on the inside which was loaded with spider webs. One of our daughters found a pretty large spider in her top bunk which scared them enough to avoid the bunk beds for the rest of the trip.

    2. There was no central heating system which we did not know about until just before the trip. Luckily, it was an unusually warm weekend (high 70's every day) so there was no problem. Even then, it was still pretty cold at night. There were a few electric heaters scattered throughout the cottage but, had it been colder, it would have been disappointing.

    3. One of the screen doors actually broke when it shut. The actual wooden frame snapped right off the door! It looked to be like old, weathered wood that just weakened over time.

    4. The back yard lawn had a ton of ant hills all over the surface that prevented the kids from "rolling around in the grass" etc.


    That's it on the critique. The view across the lake was picturesque, the pier on the lake was really nice as well as the condition of the lake. We loved the fireplace inside and also the fire pit near the lake. Overall, we were very happy with our experience and would consider renting another cottage from Visit Up North. This was already our second this year.

    Jo G from Grand Haven , MI recommends this vacation rental

    The house was very large - well suited for a large family or a couple of families. It was reasonably clean and neat - furnishings were relatively new. The backyard and view of the lake were awesome.

    A few minor items were not present - a dish cloth, dish detergent, the dish towels smelled moldy, but in general all of the necessities were there.

    The house is old, and in need of maintenance. The roof leaks in multiple places - above the kitchen window and in one of the bedrooms. The roof needs to be replaced. The ceiling in one of the bedrooms appears to be moldy. The smoke detector appears to be dated, and the electrical wiring was exposed and primarily non-grounded. I would bring my own smoke detector, if I rent this house in the future.

    The house has cable TV, and it would be a good idea to add wireless internet service for guests.

    This would be a great house to rent during the summer, as the lake access is excellent.

    While the property was nice, it still could use a few more upgrades. Minor cosmetic work needed. We experienced some issues that needed addressing while on our vacation. Could use a washer/ dryer. Other properties offered canoes and/or kayaks for the same price as this unit. Either adjust price or add additional ammenities. Overall cleanliness of property was good.
