About Kevin R Sauvage
I built this home by myself, pouring the footings on my 50th birthday and spending every available moment for the next 2 years on it. Other then the maple floor and cedar siding, all the lumber for the interior/exterior trims, stairways, cabinetry and doors was purchased as rough boards then milled to shape by myself. Much of the wood was cut 80 yrs ago off a local farm and stored until I bought it. Though I work as a woodworker my passion is sailing, something I have been doing on Northport Bay for 53 yrs. I like adventure sailing best and have completed the grueling 300 mile Everglades Challenge and have spent 19 days alone at sea on the North Atlantic in a 20' sailboat attempting a trans Atlantic crossing from NYC to Northern Spain. Tropical storm Debbie in 2012 delayed my progress until I ran out of time and was forced to return to NYC. Though New York harbor's Lower Bay and Florida's west coast/ Florida Bay have their beauty, nothing compares to sailing my home waters of Northern Lake Michigan.
Kevin R Sauvage purchased this Cottage in 2006

Fantastic stay in northern Michigan
Our family of five had a fantastic stay at Scrilly cottage. Kevin was most accommodating, the location was perfect, and the accommodations clean and comfortable to come back to after spending the day exploring Leelanau County. Our family of five is ready to head back!

Absolutely loved this place, over and above anything we expected. 5 stars and more...
This was a great place to get out of town for a few days. Very quiet and comfortable.
Home away from home
Peaceful retreat inside and out, immaculate cleanliness, accommodating with all you need and more. Pictures are great, but even better in person. Thank you Kevin for your care and attention to detail. We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 days, and hope to return again.
Restaurants in town were excellent. Loved the Tribune for breakfast, Garage for ribs and sweet potatoes, AND the farmers market!:)
Scrilly Cottage is just minutes from the best Leelanau Township has to offer. In the heart of Leelanau State Park country. Spectacular Cathead Bay beach, part of Leelanau State Park, is a 5 min drive and short walk through hardwood forests. The village of Northport with shopping, dining and municipal marina and golf course is 5 miles away.
