About John Lesperance
John and Carol are married, no kids and have a LLewellyn Setter named Roxie. We have lived in Leelanau county since 1994 and reside in an old farm house from the 1860"s. We are born and raised Michiganders that returned to this area after living 11 years in San Diego. John is self employed and Carol is a therapist at a head injury clinic. We are basically ordinary working class people. We love the outdoors, the beach, cross country skiing, hiking and all the things that lead us to this beautiful place.
John Lesperance purchased this House in 2014
Why John Lesperance chose Northport
We chose Northport for our rental because the village is old style quaint yet "hip" as well. It reminds one of a New England coast town. It is at the tip of the Leelanau peninsula and is not overrun with tourists and has maintained it's character. We love the entire village as it has everything you may want or need. Being right in the village you can walk or ride bikes to everything. There is every outdoor thing you might want and the marina park is beautiful. People are friendly and it seems no one is ever in a hurry.
What makes this House unique
Pet allowed upon approval (one dog only). Home has large covered front porch for those rainy days that might occur. Within walking distance to beach and park. Great swimming beach for children as it is shallow for a long distance out.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Great location. Beautifully updated house.
This house is amazing. I cannot say anything negative about it. We stayed in Northport for my daughters wedding. It was within walking distance to the Willowbrook Mill, where the reception was held. There was more than enough room for 6 adults. The kitchen was stocked with all the staples, the beds were comfortable and there was plenty of towels. I would definitely stay here again when visiting Northport.
Perfect for our family!
This home is welcoming and nicely updated with good size rooms. I particularly appreciated the ‘extras’; iron, ironing board, condiments, ice maker….this is the best vacation home we’ve rented!
Perfect home. Perfect location. Perfect wedding weekend!
Thank you John and Carol!
We had a wonderful stay at this charming home in Northport. The lodging was more than we expected, roomy bedrooms, lovely kitchen and enjoyable front porch for visiting and pure enjoyment. The children loved the backyard as they polished and painted their Petoskey stones. The proximity to the bakery, marina, and restaurants added to the ease of our stay. The owners were gracious and attended to all our needs. Without a doubt, we plan on going back next year.
We always enjoy our stay at this charming home! It's very clean and comfortable!!
Location is marvelous also!! We'll be back!!
Lovely home, perfect location, and accommodated our family of 8 perfectly.
We truly enjoyed our stay in Northport for our daughter’s wedding. The location and accomodations was so nice! We enjoyed having our family all together.
