About Bill UpNorth...

I relocated from a busy Metro area to beautiful Leelanau County with the dream of providing couples and families with clean and comfortable lodging that was affordable.

Being an 'Innkeeper' and seeing smiles on our guests faces year after year is very rewarding to us, especially when you hear a child ask their parents 'can we come back to the Cottage next year?'

Bill UpNorth... purchased this chateau / country house in 1994

Why Bill UpNorth... chose Suttons Bay

We are situated in the heart of one of the most magnificent areas. When I found our 'Hobby Farm' included was what once was a 100+ year-old Granary. I visualized a comfy Country Guesthouse for travelers in Spring, Summer & Fall that was centered in our magnificent Leelanau County.

After a complete renovation and more than 18-months of hard work, LEELANAU COUNTRY COTTAGE accommodated their first guests receiving many compliments.

We have since welcomed Tourists locally and far away, Winery Touring guests, many bicycle enthusiasts and even folks from Europe wishing to see the splendor of our area.

Folks from all around bring their bicycles to enjoy riding on The Leelanau Trail which is inter-connected to the many TART Trails that run through our region. You can be a casual rider or an avid cyclist and find the scenery and winding Trail is breathtaking, pleasant and maintained for everyone's use.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

We are close to 8+ Wineries and Tasting Rooms, immediately adjacent to the fresh pavement of THE LEELANAU TRAIL and just minutes away from 'postcard perfect' freshwater beaches.

We WILL re-book with alternative visiting dates upon 'reasonable' notice. While we strive for efficiency, IF we make a mistake in any reservation, we will be liable for amounts that we received as a prepaid deposit only. We will make every effort to re-book your stay with alternative dates at no additional charge.

Leelanau Country Cottage

  • 4 of 5
I stayed at the Leelanau Country Cottage in September for a long weekend to bike ride with my husband and a friend.
The cottage is right next to the bike trail and only three miles from Suttons Bay making it a great location. It was comfortable and quiet. We had plenty of room to spread out and relax. The owner was very friendly. We all agreed that we would stay there again if in the area.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5
This cottage was in a great location. It was convenient to Sleeping Bear Dunes and all of the Leelanau area. The owner was very helpful and accommodating. He had a lot of great suggestions of places to go and see, also tips for dining and wineries. It was very quiet and comfortable and right next to bike path.

Owner's Response: It was great to meet your group! This upcoming 2015 season should bring even better comforts as our 'projects' reach completion. The barn foundation area will be comfortable with a new firepit idea that will allow a calm feeling with a unique ambiance. We have folks planning next year and hope you will be a part of it in our great area!

Have a great Fall & Holiday season coming too soon.

Excellent, clean and comfortable accomodations!

  • 5 of 5
The owner expressed his aim to make this a family friendly cottage, and it surely was! The cottage was clean and charming and well suited for our family get away. We made use of the adjacent bike trails, nearby beaches and the lovely yard for sitting out in the evening for drinks and conversation. Kids loved the fire pit for s'mores. Our family highly recommends this lovely cottage and friendly owner.

Owner's Response: You had quite a group and I worried that you needed more in the way of accommodations but I see that everything worked out well for you. THANK YOU! It is a pleasure to see families group together and also to use The Leelanau Trail, a terrific resource right at the end of the driveway!

You are always welcome here and I hope that you returned to your homes rested and feeling good about your time in Leelanau County.

Have a great Autumn!

Private Country Cottage

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at the cottage for a week and loved the privacy and quiet. The cottage is quaint and comfortable. It is on the Leelanau bike trail, which we loved and took advantage of as much as we could. The location is close to several wineries, not far from Suttons Bay and Traverse City. The owner, who lives next door, was very helpful in pointing out great beaches, restaurants, and local attractions. This was an affordable accommodation and was a great value for my family.

Owner's Response: My goal all along when reconstructing the Cottage was to be able to provide that cozy feeling to people that are taking a break with a small journey in mind. I am happy to hear from people again and again that they leave with a smile feeling relaxed.

Watch the online calendar for availability. You are always welcome here!

My best to you,

Very Nice Place

  • 5 of 5
We came to Sutton's Bay for a wedding. There were 5 adults in our family that stayed at the cottage. The location and accommodations worked out well for us. I would highly recommend Leelanau Cottage to visitors staying in this area.
