THE NORTHPORT AREA

(Page Under Construction)

 

bullet

Northport: The village of Northport is just three miles from the house.  There you will find Tom’s grocery, Barb’s Bakery (a local favorite for incomparable cinnamon twists and other delicacies); a marina, and a number of local eateries, galleries, and shops (including a used paperback book store).

bullet

Peterson Park: Leave Northport on the back road, and it will take you to Peterson Park.  Climb down the stairs to the stony beach on the majestic “big lake”, take in the views of the Manitou Islands, and enjoy what we think is the most glorious sunset in Michigan

bullet

Lighthouse State Park: about eight miles beyond Northport, at the very tip of the little finger of Michigan, is Lighthouse State Park and Campground at Cathead Point.  You can enjoy the playground, tour the historic lighthouse, or simply explore the rugged coast

bullet

Omena: Just a few miles south of the house is the Village of Omena, home to Omena Cellars Winery.  Also located there is a new local restaurant, Knot Just a Bar, which can be accessed by land or water.

bullet

Suttons Bay: Another charming shopping town, Suttons bay is just 6 miles south of Omena.  In addition to shopping, it boasts several great eating establishments.  And just south of Omena, you can indulge in wine tasting at Blackstar Farms Winery, which is also home to Leelanau Cheese.

bullet

Leland: Often known as Fishtown, Leland is home to a huge selection of shops and galleries.  Among our very favorites is Carlson’s Fisheries, where you can purchase fresh and smoked local fish, such as salmon, chub, whitefish, walleye, lake trout and perch.  You can also find sporting goods, clothing, gourmet cheeses, a candy shop, and a variety of great restaurants.

bullet

Fresh Local Produce:  Although the Grand Traverse area is known as the cherry capital of the world, it is also home to an abundance of other produce, including strawberries, raspberries, peaches, blueberries and apples to name a few.  Look for these at your local roadside stands or even at the local groceries.
