Overview

Suttons Bay Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9-12)

We love our cottage and we hope you do as well! We geared our renovations toward relaxation and easy maintenance. We tried to stock everything you'd need to ensure a great time (and to keep you from having to bring up the kitchen sink). We have a large variety of movies (Kid friendly), games and toys (including beach toys) for your enjoyment. The basement is set up with toys, games, cable TV and is a safe and fun environment ... there is also plenty of room to play in the huge backyard, side yard or on the beautiful sandy beach. The entire layout of the home is geared toward outside activities and entertaining on the new 20 x 40 deck. Perfect for eating, laying out, watching the kids play, cooking on the grill, watching wildlife or the boats and my favorite ... sleeping.

We love our fires at night, and we have two fire pits. One up on top overlooking the beach and water and the other on the beach. Feel free to pitch a tent on the beach, that is an experience you won't forget.

1,800 square feet on 3/4 of an acre with one of the best beaches on West Bay!

We have made many renovations to make it an enjoyable and relaxing environment. To mention a few: gutted the kitchen and bath(s), 8 ft door wall and two French doors that open up to the huge deck (20 x 40), natural stone exterior, knotty pine walls and tile galore, plus hundreds of other items you would never notice!

The house is set off the road and we have plenty of room for additional parking on the side lot, driveway holds 4-6 vehicles.

Our house is your house, make yourself at home!

About Mike Thomas owner

My wife and I have been married for over 14 years and we have a beautiful daughter. We love spending time in our cottage and we share it with our many friends. We feel blessed to be able to share it with all of the wonderful people who have rented from us in the past. We've met so many wonderful people and we really enjoy hearing about your time in TC.

Mike Thomas owner purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Mike Thomas owner chose Suttons Bay

My parents have had a cottage in Traverse City for over 25 years and it was always a goal of mine to have a family getaway in that area. We just love the Traverse City area and plan on to retire up there in about 10 years!

What makes this cottage unique

We really spend our time relaxing. We often go up there with a long list of activities and find ourselves night after night in front of the fire pit. Just listening to the water crash on the shore and watching out for the Bald Eagles flying across the water, you just can't beat it!!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect location this is! The house is right on the lake and is only about 10 minutes from downtown TC with plenty of wineries nearby. The house is very comfortable and clean. Mike was very helpful with any questions we had. We would definitely stay here again!

Perfect water view

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much, location to wineries is great and can't beat the water view. We had a group of seven women and we all thought it was the perfect place for a ladies weekend away. Had everything we needed.

Nice place and great location

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed here with 2 other couples on March 13-15 for a college reunion/wine and beer tasting weekend. The size of the house was great for 6 people and it was clean when we arrived. The owner was responsive, especially after some confusion with the housekeeper. The location can't be beat - about 10 minutes from both downtown Traverse City and Sutton's Bay, and just minutes from many outstanding wineries. Although there was still a lot of snow while we were there, I'm sure in the summer the deck and beach are outstanding.

The Blizzard in Traverse City

  • 4 of 5

What a wonderful place. Even in the snow! Lots of room for family gatherings and great beds to rest upon and a fabulous fireplace to stay warm, and of course...one can't miss the gorgeous view of the bay. The owners did everything they could to accommodate our stay and saved the wedding day by honoring a request to please plow the driveway before our 2 am morning arrival after the reception. Thank you! We will cherish the memories that were spent at your cottage and hope to stay again someday.

Loved this place - will go back again and again

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time I've rented this home for our travels to TC, this time we went up for a friends wedding at Black Star Farms. Perfect location, close enough to the city but also close enough to the wine! The house is always in great shape, clean, and inviting. I would stay here again and again - and recommend anyone else to do the same - except the days that I want to stay there ;-) Mike you have a lovely home - thank you for sharing!

Backyard

We have a large selection of games available including a basketball net, pool table, beach toys, inflatables, horse shoes, volleyball net, soccer ball and some fishing equipment. Of course it is hard to guarantee that all of these things will work when you get there because it is difficult to monitor their condition. As you can imagine, things break and turn up missing but we really try to keep a good selection of items available. I would venture to say that we have way more than most homes you would rent!!
