Cathead Point is a 91± acre family retreat perched on the tip of Lake Michigan's renowned Leelanau Peninsula. It represents a vestige of a bygone era when gracious private estates dominated the shoreline.

A favorite four season getaway of former U.S. Ambassador, Alfred Hoffman, Jr.'s family, Cathead Point controls nearly 100 acres and 3,165 feet of pristine Lake Michigan shoreline.

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.

Cathead Point is one of the most extraordinary estates in the Great Lakes Region of the United States.

This video was produced to capture the essence of what it is like to be at Cathead Point. Of course, nothing compares to actually being there, sinking your toes in the sand, swimming on a hot day, or reading a book on the cabin porch listening to the gulls squawk and the waves crash. But, it's pretty darn good.
