My wife and I stayed here a week to explore and enjoy all the pleasures of the Leelanau. Our first impression was the glorious view of Grand Traverse Bay from the deck and the wrap around windows in the living room. It was very relaxing listening to the small waves breaking on the private sandy beach and lying in the hammock watching the cedar waxwings cavorting in the trees. Everything was as described and the owner was very helpful. If you love great food, you must eat at 9 Bean Rows in Sutton's Bay (we ate there three times and each was a unique experience). Boone's Prime Time Pub is always good as well. We also loved Pearl's (authentic Cajun food) and Short's Brewery in Bellaire (too bad you can't sample all of their great beers). We would recommend this cottage to anyone and hope to visit again next year. Although we do not have small children, the sandy beach and shallow water make ideal for them as well.
