SOPHIE'S COTTAGE: CHARMING HOME, PERFECT SETTING AND LOCATION

Suttons Bay House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Sophie’s Cottage is tucked at the edge of the village which keeps life peaceful and secluded even though the heart of Sutton’s Bay (beaches,marina, restaurants, shops and movie theater) are only a three-minute walk away. Launch your boat at the municipal marina or enjoy the kids park and pristine public beaches. The trail head for the famous TART bike trail is only a two-minute ride and destinations like Leland, Lake Leelanau, Northport, Glen Arbor, Empire and Traverse City are all just minutes by car.

Autumn is one of the most spectacular times to experience 'The County' and with two wood burning fireplaces you will stay cozy inside as the fall leaves put on their show outside.

Wine tours are another big draw during this season and Sophie's Cottage is perched right in the middle of Leelanau wine country!

This cottage home was built in 2002 with family and fun in mind. There is plenty of outdoor living to enjoy thanks to an expansive covered porch that may be used rain or shine. The south porch offers outdoor dining with a teak table and chairs. It is located just off the indoor dining room so it is perfect for the kids table! French doors in the lower level open up to a large grotto with outdoor furniture for sunbathing, relaxing or entertaining. A large stainless Weber gas grill cooks enough food for family and friends and the patio table with umbrella serves as another perfect outdoor dining spot.

The gourmet galley kitchen comes with granite counter tops, Sub-Zero refrigerator, 6-burner Wolf range, Asko dishwasher and Inca-Pro venting system for all you chefs out there. A microwave oven, toaster and blender are also offered for your convenience.

The kitchen opens up to the living area with a cottage style stone fireplace and a dining area surrounded by glass. There is also a large island with four stools for additional seating.

The master bedroom is located off of the kitchen and opens to a covered deck that looks over the grotto and expansive yard. The master bathroom and walk-in closet are located behind the bedroom and are kept private from other guests. The master garden tub is surrounded by windows and sheer shades for privacy.

Two bedrooms in the upper level share a large bathroom with the vanity sink kept separate from the toilet and tub for privacy. The lower level has a second living area and fireplace that is open to a small office area. The house is fully equipped with a secured wireless internet. Pass codes will be provided upon check-in. The signal is excellent throughout the entire house but a household computer is not provided so don't forget your laptop!

The fourth bedroom has an attached full bath with a glass/stone shower. This is considered the garden level and there is plenty of natural light with a generous amount of windows.

Dogs may be considered; an additional $75.00 pet fee is required.

There is plenty of room to park your boat and trailer on the large driveway and a garage to store your bikes. If you enjoy basketball or tennis, the public courts are only a block away. We also have several golf courses close by in the county.

My family has created many wonderful memories here at Sophie's Cottage...we know you will too! Additional photos available upon request.

I was raised here in beautiful Leelanau County and I love this area as much as you will! Now that my children have flown the nest I want others to enjoy it as much as we have!

Nancy Loveland purchased this house in 2002

This lovely home was built by one of Northern Michigan's premier builders just for my family. FL Padella knows how to create a special cozy feel in the custom homes they build. You will be transported immediately as you drive up and round the corner on Jefferson St. The architect David Hanawalt kept the ambiance of the Village in his simple design, creating clean open spaces that invite the outdoors in! I have had several guests parade out of the cottage excitedly exclaiming...'This is the vacation home we want to build!' Sophie's Cottage is extremely well maintained thanks to Martin Easling of Easling Contruction. His impeccable reputation is well earned and you can rest assured his home maintenance team will be there immediately if any service is needed on the home or property.

Waking up to the sunrise with a cup of coffee on the Adirondack chairs is always a special treat. You will enjoy the birds and wildlife every morning! I walk to my favorite restaurant Martha's on main street or to the delightful Bay Theater which is only a 4 minute walk !

Sophie's Cottage is not a cottage at all. Nancy has opened her exquisite home and you'll never want to leave. We stayed there with our happy lab, Luke, and he loved the porch and the yard where he could play and sleep in the sun or in the shade on the porch. The setting is private but still very close to the town of Sutton's Bay with the Tart trail, shopping and restaurants. Relaxing on the porch or inside her very comfortably appointed home was such a high point we did not want to be away for very long. The location is great, kind of in the middle for trips to Traverse City, Northport, Sleeping Bear Dunes etc. I can't say enough about Nancy and the attention she gives to her guests. We loved every thing about it except having to leave!

We have rented homes through VRBO throughout the country and this home tops most of them. We have pretty high standards and this home doesn't miss a beat. From the finishes to the owner, we were very pleased. The home is placed in a manicured, private setting, just minutes from town and the beach. We have already booked our return trip for next year. Thank you Nancy for allowing us to spend time in your home. We look forward to next year.

We just returned from a perfect vacation at Sophie's Cottage! We have rented a vacation home in Michigan for the past nine years to be together with our grown children and their families. Sophie's Cottage and the Sutton's Bay area has won the "blue ribbon" by far!!! You feel like you are staying at a five star resort! You have the advantage of being right in town, but the yard is so beautifully landscaped you feel secluded and away from it all!! We just can't say enough about this beautiful home. It is impeccably clean with a chef's kitchen, large living areas and luxurious beds and baths. We enjoyed the big relaxing porches with comfy furniture and beautiful grotto area for dining out. Our vacation started immediately upon arrival when we were greeted with relaxing music, fresh flowers and wonderful local wine and cheese! The beach is right down the street with nice shallow water; a daily event with our little guys for sure!! There's lots to see and do in Sutton's Bay and the Leelanau Peninsula; a perfect Michigan vacation spot. Nancy is a fantastic host; she doesn't miss a beat when it comes to hospitality!! Our family can't wait to return! Thank you Nancy for sharing your beautiful home!!!

What a perfect recipe for a family vacation: Mix beautiful Sutton's Bay with special culinary delights and restaurants; add biking, beach, and wine adventures; combine first class accommodations in a 4 star dream house with cozy porch moments,lawn croquet competitions, family laughs and memories. Fold in the owner's (Nancy) friendly and helpful personality..and bake under warm, sunny skies for that perfect vacation!
Our family just can't say enough about the versatility of staying at Sophie's cottage - everyone enjoyed walking the 2 blocks into town for breakfast at Martha's or bringing back special breakfast treats from the bakeries. The TART bike path is just a few blocks away for a flat bike ride into Traverse City or for a winery visit. Lake Michigan is just a short 20 minute drive away as are gorgeous vistas from just about every corner .Sophie's Cottage should be the 'cover girl' for every Pure Michigan Ad....
