“The Otherside” Fishtown Shanty NEWLY RENOVATED



2 bedroom, 2 bathroom private Shanty in Historic Fishtown, right on the Leland River

Sleeps 6
Category: Tags: ,


One of the most unique rental properties right on the river in Leland’s Historic Fishtown, this century old fishing shanty was home to one of the many fishing family businesses that occupied the village for decades.

Step out on the dock to watch the fishing boats and the Manitou Island Transit ferry coming and going from the Leland River. Observe the visitors on the other side of the river, meandering through Fishtown’s “shanty” shops. Take a short walk to explore beautiful, expansive beaches of Lake Michigan and all the restaurants and shops in Leland, including Carlson’s fishery, where you can get fresh caught Great Lakes fish.

Remodeled by the Carlson family in 2000, and newly renovated this year after sustaining damage from high water, this comfortable, well furnished, two bedroom, two bathroom shanty with a generous deck facing Lake Michigan, can sleep 6-8 people. This unique opportunity to spend a week in a one-of-a-kind property is offered through The Fishtown Preservation Society. If you are looking for an unforgettable vacation experience, this is it!
