Enjoy sipping morning coffee on the nearly 300-square-foot pillared, covered front porch. Home brew a cuppa Joe in the generously equipped kitchen or purchase a specialty cup for the River and Main coffee shop just steps away.
Your designated chef will be thrilled to find updated appliances and ample counter space in the fully equipped kitchen. Head right out the door to the patio to find a fire pit table and smoker/grill, perfect for those evening cookouts.
The main floor family room has a cozy wood-burning fireplace, a reading nook and nice built-ins. Newly redecorated and fully appointed, 'The River House' is sure to impress friends and family during your stay!

During the day, your family can busy themselves doing everything - or nothing! This home is lovingly stocked with summer entertainment necessities like beach reading, games for all ages, and jigsaw puzzles. Grab the blankets and beach chairs for a day spent on the sandy shores of Leland on Lake Michigan; public beach access sits just a block away!
-- THE LOCATION --
You'll soon find your favorite spot in Leland is right on the shores of Lake Leelanau and Lake Michigan! Spread out your blankets and beach chairs to read, swim, or nap, while the kids play in the sand and surf.
If you'd like to bring the boat along, reserve a boat slip each day at the Leland Marina for effortless adventures on the water.
This charming town is the perfect place to shop, stroll, eat ice cream, or just people-watch the days away. When hunger grows, head to one of the restaurants within a 4-minute walk of 'The River House,' including the famous Blue Bird Restaurant. For a splurge, the Riverside Inn and its elegant bar is a scrumptious option, right across the street!
The world famous Sleeping Bear Dunes and National Lakeshore Park is just a half-hour drive away. You're sure to enjoy the route there along the South Manitou Trails - arguably the most picturesque road in the State of Michigan - overlooking miles of lake views, million-dollar homes, and the Manitou Islands.
After an energetic Sleeping Bear Dunes climb or hike, visit Glen Arbor, another one of Michigan's crown jewel villages along the self-proclaimed "Gold Coast." On a hot day, plan ahead and take a cool canoe or float trip down the gin-clear, and aptly-named, Crystal River.
Head north to the Grand Traverse Lighthouse and museum at the tip of the Leelanau Peninsula, and return through quaint Northport where you must visit Barb's Bakery - get there early enough to snag a cinnamon roll before they're sold out!
There are dozens of terrific restaurants in Suttons Bay and Lake Leelanau, no more than 15 minutes away. While you're in Suttons Bay, drive past our other fine properties at 124 South Shore (M-22) and 93 South Shore. Hansen's Grocery, in the plaza off Fourth Street, is astounding in its selection of terrific local and other selections from around the world.
