Property Watch: Snowbird For Sale

Feb. 21, 2024

This stunning home has been wowing (and comforting) visitors for more than three decades as the Snowbird Bed and Breakfast. Now it could be yours to continue that legacy or to transform into your own dream home.

With its sweeping half-wrap porch, dormers and more, this 120-year old home has the charm of a southern estate right here in the north country. It offers six bedrooms, wood floors and refinished original trim throughout. It sits on 18 beautiful acres containing antique varietal apple trees, rolling hills, a garden and a pond.

Despite its age, the home and associated outbuildings have been well-kept. A new septic is being installed, two furnaces have been replaced within the last 8 years and the barn has a newer metal roof.

Location is everything, and this property’s setting along M-22 just south of the bustling tourist town of Leland and just north of Sleeping Bear Dunes could not be better.
