The wooded rolling sand hills make it one of the most beautiful lakes in the Great Lakes region.

We are minutes from popular Glen Arbor and 30 minutes from Traverse City - both are a scenic self-guided color tour is during fall - as is a kayak trip down the Crystal River! Guests can enjoy mild temps, fewer crowds, and the Sip & Savor Wine Trail in the spring - the budding wild flowers, Cherry Blossoms and Orchards are seen along hiking trails.

Things To Do

Our shallow swimming area extending out more than 100 yards, so swimming is fun for the entire family. It wouldn’t be cabin time without an evening bon fire - we have a lakeside fire pit.

Welcome to the famous Leelanau Peninsula! Guests can experience local Marinas, art studios & galleries, gift shops, botanical gardens, antique shops, historic landmarks. Guests come from all over the world to visit go on a Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail, play our golf courses, and of course explore Sleeping Bear Dunes Park.
