Hi Bob, Sorry that you had an issue with the road noise - we try to make it known that we are just South of Leland on M-22, one of Michigan's most well known scenic highways, and most guests don't mind giving up a bit of road noise for a deck with a view of North Lake Leelanau!

5 out of 5
Great setting. Friendly staff clean cute rooms. Zack was simply the best!

The room was great, but the view was amazing. Close to Leland and fish town and restaurants. Staff very friendly and helpful.
