About the property

Lake Mi Beachfront, Stunning Views, Private Beach, Serene Natural Setting.

Good Harbor Bay Beauty! Stunning views in a serene location. Built in 1952, it has classic cottage charm and is only a few minutes south of Leland. Spacious deck looks out towards the sunset views over both North and South Manitou Islands, and the expanse of Good Harbor Bay, from Pyramid Point in the south to Whaleback in the north. Ships pass on the horizon, past the expanses of green beach grass, past the pure sand beach that borders the clear, fresh waters of Lake Michigan. The peaceful environment and natural beauty of this property is unparalleled. 3 Bedrooms, 2 full baths; sleeps 8.

About Gina McFadden

I have been coming "Up North" my whole life. As a child I played on the sandy beaches of Lake Michigan, climbed the dunes, and splashed in the rivers and lakes that grace the area. As an adult, I now watch my two girls enjoy the same magical experiences of my childhood. I manage two properties in the area - one on Platte Lake and one on Good Harbor. My passion is to help you and your family/friends enjoy the stunning beauty that is Northern Michigan.

Gina McFadden purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Gina McFadden chose Northern Michigan

Panoramic views of Good Harbor and Manitou Islands, pristine sand, private frontage, cozy cottage charm, close to Glen Arbor and Leland. Natural beauty of the area, while being close to great food, shopping and sight-seeing.

What makes this cottage unique

Near Sleeping Bear Dunes, Glen Arbor, Leland, Leelanau County Wine Trail and Traverse City.

Lovely cabin on Lake MI

Great location, lovely decoration, located right on the beach. There were a few minor issues upon moving in but host was accessible via text and phone to address. Great place.

Lovely cottage, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family vacation at this cottage. It's a beautiful cottage, exactly as in the pictures and right on the lake. The owner is very responsive and provided great suggestions! The location was perfect to explore Sleping Bear Dunes, nearby villages and wineries.

Wonderful cottage on Lake Michigan!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay at this cottage and it couldn't have been more enjoyable. The owners keep it maintained beautifully and it was exceptionally clean. It's so close to Lake Michigan that you can skip rocks from the porch! Very quiet and private providing a relaxing getaway for our family. The owners were very good to work with had the place ready for us upon arrival. We will definately be going back!
