About Lake Leelanau

Lake Leelanau is an unincorporated community in Leland Township, Leelanau County, Michigan, near the lake of the same name. It is situated along  M-204 at the "narrows" that separate North & South Lake Leelanau.

The village of Lake Leelanau includes its hearty year-round residents; however, as summer comes to the Leelanau Peninsula, vacationers flock to the area to enjoy its scenic beauty, boating, fishing, friendly restaurants, quaint shops and quiet charm along the narrows. This tranquil life was celebrated in a series of essays written by Kathleen Stocking.
In the surrounding area, sightseers can make short trips to Leland, Suttons Bay, Glen Arbor, Northport and Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. This areas' soils support several orchards and wineries nearby available for agri-tourism.
