About Melissa Smith
Our family of four lives in Grand Rapids and we escape to Leelanau County every chance we get! We love walking the beaches with our Golden Retriever, hiking and geocaching throughout the county, waterskiing and tubing on pristine Lake Leelanau, and exploring new restaurants and wineries!
Melissa Smith purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Melissa Smith chose Leland
The Bluestone Cottage gives us a chance to be just one block from the most hidden and desirable beach in Leelanau and just a short walk along the lakefront back streets to Leland, the most charming town up north and one of 'America's Best 8 Lake Towns.'
What makes this Cottage unique
We love the generous size of all the 4 bedrooms, the classic front porch, private back deck and 3-season screen porch for early mornings and we love being in-town Leland.

Another great year!
We've been staying at this house for the past couple years and have already booked it for 2020. We love Leland and this house works out great for our family. One of the best things for us is that my in-laws come as well and the way the first and second floor is separated, it allows for more than enough space for everyone. Very easy walk to the beach and into Fishtown as well.
Perfect Leland vacation
We loved Melissa’s vacation home in Leland. It was the perfect distance to Fishtown and a more private area of Lake Mi (North Beach). My only suggestion would be to have plastic cups and dinnerware for the deck area (especially for the kids). But over all - we really was a perfect family vacation in Leland! Thank you so much!
Leland was wonderful
We rented this house for a family vacation with my parents. We had 4 adults, 3 kids, and a small dog with us. The house was great and Melissa was easy to communicate with during our stay. We loved walking or biking into town multiple times a day. We used all the beaches in town as well. I would recommend this house to my family and friends any day. Thanks Melissa!
Wonderful house for our family of 10. Great to walk to the beach and town. Only negative was the busy and noisy road in front of the house. Nice deck and porch. Refrigerator did not keep cold as it should. Also, would of been nice to have the upstairs frig working. Especially for our group of ten. But overall - wonderful!
Terrific to hear your group of 10 enjoyed your peak summer season vacation in Leland. I’ll fiddle with the fridge settings to keep it colder. Thanks for the tip!
Very spacious house
Very nice house, the rooms are broken up that each group of people can have their space. Walking distance from a beach and town. Only issue we had was with the water pressure. I'm guessing it is a on demand system and when multiple showers were in use we had problems with water pressure and temp fluctuation. Aside from that lots of items in the kitchen for cooking, lots of seats out on the porches with very little bugs, pet friendly. Love the area and fresh air. Would stay again.
Excellent to hear you enjoyed the in town/near beach location of the Bluestone. I love the porches too! Great place to find fireflies in the summer evenings. I serviced the water softener this week. Thanks for letting me know. All works well now! Hope to see you next summer.
Great family home
We had multiple married children stay here for a family vacation. There was plenty of room for everyone and great amenities such as a grill, gas firepit, screened porch, and front porch seating. The location was an easy walk to town, shops, and beaches. Melissa was very helpful in providing information about the cottage and places to visit. I would highly recommend the Bluestone Cottage.
Excellent to hear you enjoyed the house amenities and the cute town of Leland! So happy to host your family. Hope to see you again.
The Bluestone Cottage is in the heart of one of 'America's Best 8 Lake Towns' with EASY ACCESS to both Lake Michigan beaches and boating on Lake Leelanau. Nearby hiking at Whaleback or Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, 'The Most Beautiful Place in America'. Taste wines & cherries, swim & bike, enjoy the good life in Leland, Michigan!
