Come and stay at the freshly updated West Wind Resort 'Suite Cherry' lakeside cottage. This lakeside resort has 11 cottages with 400' of water frontage. Inside this recently updated quaint, cozy retreat, we've updated it with ceramic tiled kitchen and bathroom floors, two new beds (2013), Dish Satellite TV (2013), along with a burst of fresh colors that will brighten your stay. You can let your kids play on the large playground and run safely throughout the resort property without worrying about busy streets. You can take them down to the sandy beach where all of you will enjoy the warm Michigan sun. A personal boat slip is provided (up to 22 foot) and also a place on Lake Leelanau to rent boats. Dad will want to take the kids out on this great fishing lake to catch walleye, bass, and pan fish, and the moms can slip away to take in the wonderful boutiques and shops in Sutton's Bay and Traverse City.

Quiet, clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5
I concur with all the positives mentioned here, and can only add that the beds were very comfortable and the bathroom was immaculate (often weak spots in rental properties). The owners were very responsive and easy to work with. It's a great location for exploring one of the most beautiful areas of the Midwest.

Peaceful Hidden Gem!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were looking for a nice cottage to stay in while we were in the Traverse City area for the local marathon. We found this cottage and were pleased that it was still available. We thought the price was very reasonable for a holiday weekend. When we arrived we were so comforted by the feeling of being tucked away, but still close enough to enjoy Suttons Bay or Traverse City in only a few minutes. The cottages are very peaceful and are right on the lake! The cottage itself was very inviting and cozy. It was very clean and organized and had all of the amenities we needed. We really enjoyed sitting outside on the patio area and enjoying the lake views. Working with Steve on the details was easy. He provided us with all of the details we needed prior to our arrival so there was no confusion. We look forward to enjoying another stay in this cottage again next time we are in Traverse City. It is a beautiful little gem that is perfect for any getaway.

Wonderful Cozy Cabin on the Lake!

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was a perfect location for my family and I to stay while we did a wine tasting tour over the weekend (3 adult males, 2 adult females). Having a kitchen was very convenient. There were only two other cabins occupied out of about 10, so it was very quiet and peaceful. Did a little fishing in the dock area, then had a bonfire at night. Very clean and nice decor. Owner was very easy to work with and friendly. About 10 minutes from Suttons Bay (which had a plenty or restaurants and shops to choose from). Boone's Tavern was a very cozy and delicious place to eat! I would definitely recommend to anyone, and would love to come back!

Leelanau cottage

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at the Barkers’ cottage very much. It is a great place to “get away from it all,” since there is no WiFi and the TV is just connected to the DVD/VCR player, but everything else needed is there. Lake Leelanau is a long (15 miles), beautiful lake, perfect temperature, great for boating and fishing. Closest stores and restaurants are in Suttons Bay, or Lake Leelanau town (check out the Pedaling Beans Coffee House), about 15 minutes away. This is a perfect location for exploring all of the Leelanau peninsula as well as Traverse City.

Although there are technically seven beds, that would feel quite crowded.
The photos give one a good idea of the place.

The Barkers are fine landlords and were eager for us to enjoy ourselves.

Map

You will never tire of the more than 27 golf courses in the area, and West Grand Traverse Bay offers more water-sports such as sailing the Tall Ship, afternoon catamaran rides, para sailing and jet ski rentals. Take a drive out to Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore and don't miss the scenic Pierce Stocking Drive with outstanding views of Lake Michigan Hike throughout many of the trails in Sleeping Bear or take the kids to the 110 foot dune climb. Some of the finest restaurants in all of Michigan are located in this area, ranging from casual family to fine dining. If malls are your thing, Cherryland Mall and several large retailers have moved into southwestern Traverse City.

This is a great location to use as a base to enter the Walleye Tournament here in May, or go to nearby Suttons Bay for their Art Fair or Jazz Festival in the summer. The Traverse City 'Cherry Festival' is one of the areas hottest places to be in July. With featured music groups and a carnival for the kids.
