About P V Roby
My family lives in Ann Arbor Michigan. We have three children, the youngest of whom is 27.
P V Roby purchased this House in 1999
Why P V Roby chose Northport
We began renting cottages in Northern Michigan in the 1980's. It was always a 'shot in the dark' renting homes sight unseen. When we discovered our property in the early 1990's we knew we had found somewhere we could return to every summer. Our three children could swim in the bay which is shallow for quite a ways. We loved tubing and snorkeling in the crystal clear water. There were plenty of 'critters' for the kids to study and catch. The Leelanau peninsula is absolutely beautiful and there are many activities close by. In 1999, when the owner of the property who lives next door offered to sell it to us, we couldn't refuse. We purchased the property in 1999, removed the old cottage and built the new house in 2000. We enjoy getting together with our extended families for reunions so we built Roby's Retreat with family reunions in mind.

Great week stay for our family reunion!
This was a lovely house and property. We had 16 adults (no children) for the stay. We loved the access to our "own" private beach with plenty of chairs for the beach.
There was a bit of congestion in the bathrooms but nothing that we weren't able to work out easily. Ample supply of towels, sheets and pillows.
We spent quite a bit of time on the back deck overlooking the bay and also on the front screened in porch.
PV did a great job in thinking of little things that made our stay much more pleasant... for instance, she had provided a toothbrush when one of us forgot ours. There were more than ample cups and dishes. And the kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans. We appreciated that there were many "stock" items available for us to use when we were cooking. We did, however, buy (and leave - as a gift to the house) a set of measuring cups and spoons. I am sure they will be useful for others going forward.
Thank you PV. We want to talk to you about renting again in 2021.
Enjoyed our stay.
The home and property worked well for our large family. Plenty of "community" area inside to be gathered together and good outdoor yard space for kids to play. Very nice sandy beach and lots of ammenities.
Family of 24, had a wonderful time. Kids really enjoyed the beach.
Neat, clean, great location, nice yard and beach area. Slip at marina was a big plus.
Everything was great! Made our vacation much nicer. Highly recommend!
Extended Family Vacation
All 24 (10 adults, 14 kids) of us fit this house perfectly. The house was very comfortable, private and had lots of extras. The house was close to many attractions in the Traverse City and Leelanau peninsula areas. We had a great time and Would love to stay there again!
Great space in Northport!
Super comfortable space with room for a lot of our extended family. Furniture is all comfortable, brand new deck out back, cute little beach with a firepit, plenty of chairs outside, huge screened porch. We would definitely recommend for your large group! Such a beautiful place.
