Perched on the tip of Lake Michigan’s renowned Leelanau Peninsula, Cathead Point is a vestige of a bygone era when gracious private estates dominated the shoreline. A favored retreat of former U.S. Ambassador, Alfred Hoffman, Jr.’s family, Cathead Point controls 91± acres and 3,165 feet of pristine Lake Michigan shoreline. The property features a main residence, antique log cabin, historic Taylor Farmhouse, four waterfront home sites, and a sweet spot near the cabin for an accessory building.

The Hoffman family’s legacy is their conservation of 84± acres, and the preservation of the antique cabin set on the farthest edge of the property where dunes, beach and water dramatically converge. The family’s conscientious land stewardship has encouraged rich bio- diversity and a healthy ecosystem.

Point-privacy, wooded hills, open fields, rolling dunes and sandy beach define the Cathead Point experience. After 30-plus years of creating family memories, the Hoffman family now offers for sale what is undeniably one of the most extraordinary land assets in the Great Lakes Region of the United States.
