Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: I grew up in Charleston SC on the Atlantic Coast, so I knew nothing about the Great Lakes. It was not until I'd been married for 6 years that I finally agreed to go to 'the Lake.' Needless to say I fell in love with the area and have come back every summer since then. My husband has been coming to Leland with his family since he was a young boy in 1952. He learned to play golf at the Leland Country Club and to water ski barefoot and sail on North Lake Leelanau.
Why the Owner Chose Leland: Locals describe Leland as 'The Land of Delight.' Both sets of grandparents in my husband's family started coming here in 1930's and started a multi-generational experience that we hope to see continue for many more generations to come.
The Unique Benefits at this Estate: This area of Michigan was voted in 2011 as the most beautiful place in the USA in a Good Morning America poll of fabulous places to visit in the USA. The relatively cool summers and fabulous lakes, not to mention lovely cherry, apple and peach orchards and vineyards contribute to the unique flavor of the area.
