QUIET, PRIVATE, WATERFRONT - LUXURY ON 125 FT. OF SUTTONS BAY

Suttons Bay Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

White Fence Waterfront Suites is a truly unique vacation property. White Fence is a compilation of restored circa 1900 farm buildings just one block south of one of the most quaint villages in the Upper Midwest. The Village of Suttons Bay has deluxe shopping, art galleries and good restaurants abound. White Fence is within walking distance of it all and centrally located for touring all of scenic Leelanau County and its multitude of wineries, fine restaurants, charming villages and the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Seashore Park.

White Fence is a small and quiet property which has been meticulously renovated. The two guest suites are artfully done with privacy, quiet and magnificent views of the bay kept in mind. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with seating areas throughout. The beach front is furnished with cushioned teak seating and wood for the fire pit is always provided. Star gazing from the beach at night is memorable.

You will find specialty food items and beverages in your refrigerator when you arrive. But directly across the street from White Fence is a gourmet grocery store which specializes in local produce and houses an extensive wine selection where the sommelier can describe to you the award-winning local wines. There is an outdoor kitchen at White Fence with a natural gas grill should you decide to cook.

Also directly across the street, is the Leelanau Trail, an extensive biking, walking and running trail. It offers miles of scenic enjoyment.

White Fence was opened for business on July 4th, 2010 and is now taking reservations.

We stumbled onto Northern Michigan in the mid-1970's and fell in love with the crystal-clear waters of the upper Great Lakes. The Caribbean-like colors range from deep navy blue to teal green and you can see the beautiful sand bottoms at 40 foot depths. We were hooked and vacationed here every year, then moved here full-time in 2002 when we bought White Fence. My architect husband spotted this property over 20 years ago and knew it had untapped potential. I am a photographer and will never run out of beautiful things to photograph in this area. It's a special place.

Kathy purchased this cottage in 2002

Leelanau County has so many beautiful vistas ranging from rural cherry orchards to vineyards to islands to seashores to cool villages we sometimes wonder why everyone doesn't live here. It is scenic in all four seasons. Springs brings the cherry blossoms, summer the cool clear air and joy of the water, fall a color array the would put Vermont to shame and winter is simply a wonderland. On top of that, the restaurants are spectacular.

We pay unique attention to the small details that will make your stay special. The linens are exquisite. The tasty treats are unique. And the views can not be beat.

Beautiful vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful week we had staying at the Cottage Suite at White Fence! We were greeted by Kathy and there were not only fresh flowers in our living room, but delicious local goodies that were enjoyed during the next few days. The first night we had a picnic dinner at the comfortable beach area in front of the Cottage. The Cottage Suite is, hands down, the most beautifully decorated place we've ever stayed! It is obvious that an architect was involved in the renovation and an artist/photographer did the decorating. Very classy, yet homey! -- The view can't be beat and the property is within easy walking distance of downtown Suttons Bay. We thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful scenery, wineries, shopping, and restaurants in the Leelanau Peninsula and beyond. We certainly hope to return to White Fence in the future and we would highly recommend it to others!

White Fence Carriage House Suite

  • 5 of 5
This was our first visit to White House in Suttons Bay. It was the most memorable vacation! Kathy and Duke were so friendly with information on where to eat, hike, day trips etc. There were fresh wildflowers and sweet cherries waiting for us when we arrived, plus enough goodies to get us through until the next day or two. The Carriage House Suite was excellent. Spacious, modern and so convenient to everything in town..grocery store, coffee and breakfast/dinner restaurants. The lake was a stones throw from our front door. Private beach, great lounging area and a place to make a welcomed fire at the end of the day. I would highly recommend White Fence to friends, family and to people we don't even know! Thank you Kathy and Duke for a great week in Suttons Bay!

A Great Place for a Get-Away

  • 5 of 5
I just wanted to thank you for the nice weekend at the Cottage Suite. You certainly don't miss a thing when getting your place ready! We have rented at well over 25 places through VRBO across the United States, but I think yours was one of the coziest and most homey! We appreciated the yummy snacks and drinks as well as the comfy bedding. Even with the dreary weather we still had a great time in Suttons Bay! We toured the wineries, shops and restaurants. We squeezed in a nice 4 mile run on the trail, which is beautiful! and attended mass at the Catholic church in town. All in all a great weekend get away!! Kathy and Duke make their place truly special! We hope to return.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I, along with another couple, stayed at White Fence for a week in July. It was absolutely perfect. The setting on Sutton's Bay is stunning. In fact, some of my pictures could have been taken somewhere in the Carribean. We stayed in the carriage house which was perfect for the two of us. It was beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, provided with sumptuous linens and a well-stocked kitchen. We enjoyed all of the extras - from the fresh flowers to the local gourmet snacks and bottle of wine. My husband, who loves to cook, had fun cooking in the outdoor kitchen. The other couple with us stayed in the cottage suite - a little smaller but furnished as nicely as the carriage house. We could easily walk to the charming little town of Suttons Bay where we enjoyed the wonderful restaurants and shops. It was also nice having a grocery store within walking distance. And, a movie theater! We drove over to the Sleeping Bear Dunes and up to Northport for a concert. It was one of our best vacations ever, and we plan to return.

Just What I Needed...

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at White Fence in the Carriage House last week. Kathy & Duke were generous, gracious hosts who seemed to know exactly what I needed in a getaway. The property was immaculate and stocked with local goodies I might not have tried on my own. They also provided a detailed document outlining the workings of the property, as well as a list of local haunts that were not to be missed. I must say I took their recommendations to heart, and they did not steer me wrong! As a former B&B owner, I appreciate the attention that was put to every detail of the property. I also sincerely appreciated the fact that I was given phone numbers with which to reach the owners, should I need them, but was otherwise left to my own devices- which was exactly what I'd hoped for. (I also love the fact that I did not have to contend with children during my stay.) This is the perfect spot in which to "hole up" for a romantic getaway, or serve as a home base while exploring all the area has to offer. I hope to return for a full week next year!
