THE NORTHPORT AREA
(Page Under Construction)
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).
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
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
