Prepare yourself for the best Up North get-a-way! The Omena Bayhouse is a cozy duplex on 2.5 acres with 200 feet of private sugar sand beach frontage on Lake Michigan's West Bay. Bring your yard games and beach/swimming gear because the swimming and diving is unbelievable.
What’s not to love at this Leelanau Peninsula vacation rental. We went large with just about everything: Updated with comfortable furnishings; large wooden deck with propane grill and seating for six; large windows offering vistas of the bay and conservancy land; large living room and a laundry room off the main kitchen.
The grassy yard leads you down to the beach where you’ll find a dock with kayaks, paddle boards, and rowboat. Don’t just watch the lake, get out there. Don’t sleep in every morning either, get up early and watch the unique shimmering sunrise over the water.
OMG! Breathtaking views as your family and friends enjoy a day filled with sun, swimming, boating, and beachcombing for those smooth Petoskey stones. It’s so dark at night, you’ll count stars and see the Milky Way galaxy - a great time to be gathered around a beach bonfire in the provided stone fire pit. Maybe you’ll be treated to the Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis: Locals tip: The highest probability is between 10 and 11pm.
Explore the charming village of Omena by foot - the 1100 foot square Bayhouse offers a 2 minute walk to several locals-favorite destinations: Knot Just a Bar (enjoy a gourmet dinner outdoors), Leelanau Cellars Wine Tasting, a museum, and a gallery.
Northern Leelanau Peninsula is a year round destination. Fall color tours, hiking, biking, trails for cross country skiing, snowshoeing, fat tire biking, and winery tours (20 wineries) are just a few things to look forward to. All ages will love learning at the Grand Traverse Lighthouse Museum - "Leelanau Shipwrecks" exhibit, and the tribal museum at Peshabestown. The famous Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore is a short drive from your northern Michigan vacation home too.
Vibrant Traverse City is just 30 minutes south. We recommend taking the M-22 Scenic Drive (during Autumn if at all possible). While exploring watch for restaurants and bakeries (pub food, Zagut rated delights, and regional specialties with European accents at Martha’s Table)
