Once again, Northern Home & Cottage has collected 13 stunning homes in Leelanau, Traverse City and Old Mission Peninsula. Tour highlights? An eight-bedroom former inn turned private home, a solar-powered country home, a new build that melds coastal and industrial styles, two fabulous young family homes, a 90s log home redone for today's living and so much more.

This tour is very doable in a day, but it helps to plan your route ahead of time.
