Property Description

Recent guests said: “This has been so lovely. It is amazing to sit here and listen to a concerto of birdsong, accompanied by the soft percussion of the wind in the trees. Although we are anxious to get home and see our beautiful new space, we will be leaving with a pang. This is one of the loveliest places on earth, and I can’t imagine a much better place to stay and enjoy it fully.” As you enter the magical world of a beautiful & artistic architectural Northern Michigan masterpiece, this stunning, unique 5,000 SF home is owner custom designed & built. A mile from Good Harbor Bay; uniquely suited to use as a bed (“Bud?”) and breakfast, vacation rental or guest house leaving plenty of room for a simultaneous permanent residence. Five bedrooms with private baths, ample sitting areas, numerous decks & ingenious stairways; architectural brilliance which creates havens of privacy throughout. There are 6 masonry wood-burning fireplaces: 4 in the main house & 2 in the cabin! This work of art has been meticulously maintained since its inception; lovingly added onto with clever historic buildings. One is a replica of a pioneer cabin, built with hand-hewn logs & outfitted with a fireplace designed and used to cook pioneer dinners like our forefathers did! The 9 acres has total privacy with hardwood white birch, oak & sugar maple in abundance, as well as conifer softwoods, towering pine, fir, spruce, and hemlock. The land is unmatched with rolling hills, ravines and green verdant valleys, and a babbling brook runs through with small waterfalls over the rocks. It’s 9 acres of adult and kid heaven with creek, small spaces to explore, gorgeous woods: home sweet home. This private and secluded beauty is a 5-min drive to Leland, 30 to Traverse City, or public access at Good Harbor Bay in just minutes where you can boat and swim to your heart’s content, then come back to total quiet and peace as you open the door to your elegant, timeless hideaway.
