If you are coming to stay with us, one our features you will enjoy most is our location. Right in the heart of downtown Leland, Historic Fishtown, The Manitou Island Ferry, several Lake Michigan and Lake Leelanau beaches, and great shopping are all within a short walk. As well, just a short drive will take you to sites such as the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes, the Northport Lighthouse, Port Oneida, and of course all of our fantastic local vineyards. And if you are visiting for golf ~ there are several wonderful courses in Leelanau just waiting for you. Our Leelanau Conservancy trails are another wonderful way to spend the afternoon.
Upstairs our four guest rooms have the feel and charm of days gone by. Each one has been renovated and has a unique personality detailed below.
