Overview

Suttons Bay Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Chateau / Country House, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5-6)

This guest house is at the center of our 21 acre Gentlemen's ranch. While there is not a water view unless you are on top one of our hills, the setting is an idyllic location with panoramic valley and hill views. This house has a warm natural all wood interior with beautiful artwork.

The grounds are professionally landscaped and maintained by the Landscape Architect owner.

There is a large open area that includes a wrap-around leather couch and a loft with two beds along with a separate bedroom with a queen-size bed with an exceptional quality pillow-top mattress. There is plenty of room to park any toys (campers, boats, trailers) right on the property. The owners have a 30 foot sailboat, a 26 foot motorboat and other water toys, so arrangements could be made for their use. If there is a need to stall your horses, or if you want to ride a horse or two, those arrangements can be made as well.

On the property is a large barn, a small barn (both for horses) along with indoor and outdoor riding arenas. Attached to the indoor riding arena is a viewing area with foosball, wifi, cable, leather couches, bathroom, laundry and additional sleeping area in another loft if it is needed.

At night, there is a firepit area to warm up on the cold Northern Michigan nights and we are far enough away from any city so that the panaromic star views are incredible.

We are only 1/2 mile away from the Suttons Bay to Traverse City trail and you could ride bikes/horses snowshoe/hike/cross-country ski in any direction from here and see wonderful water vistas and orchard/hill/valley views.

We are 30 minutes away from the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and the Homestead Resort that has skiing with hills that border on Lake Michigan.

Keywords: Northern Michigan, Suttons Bay, Horse Farm boarding (weekly/monthly) Indoor and Outdoor Riding Arenas, riding trials, Sailing/Power-boat excursions available

About Debbie Slocombe

Jeff and Debbie live on the property with their daughter Samara. Jeff is an attorney and Debbie is a Landscape Architect who designed the beautiful grounds and maintains them as well. They enjoy the life up North with the opportunity to raise, ride and show horses.

Debbie Slocombe purchased this chateau / country house in 2002

Why Debbie Slocombe chose Suttons Bay

Jeff and Debbie have been coming to the Traverse City/Suttons Bay all of their lives for vacations and decided to move to the area in 1999. They love the location of Suttons Bay because it has all the activities of Traverse City, yet the idyllic lifestyle of a Village just a short distance away.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Our home is just a five minute walk to the beach or a one mile bike ride/hike to Suttons Bay. The TART trail (Rails to Trails Suttons Bay to Traverse City) makes it a 13 mile bike ride to Traverse City.

You can bring your own bikes or borrow our tandem to ride into the Village for a nice breakfast/lunch/dinner.

Because we are on 21 acres surrounded by much more open area, you will not be constricted to a small area.

Charming Indeed

  • 5 of 5
Northern Michigan is beautiful especially in the fall. The cottage is set in a great location for touring the Leelanau wineries, and conveniently close to Suttons Bay. Check out the 45th Parallel for a great breakfast. The cottage was cozy and comfortable with basic necessities. If you've never had the opportunity to play Cowminoes, book now.

The cottage was quaint, comfortable and clean. Perfectly located for a weekend of wine tasting in the fall! Beautiful property, loved the horses and the owners were down to earth. Thank you for an amazing weekend!

Close to great boating, wonderful property owners

  • 4 of 5
Most helpful and all-around lovely hosts! The property is beautiful and the pictures absolutely represent the property. The sunsets are out of this world. We ate at a few restaurants that the owners recommended and they were great! We boated, kids rode the horses (as arranged with Debbie separately) and we relaxed. The loft has a ladder that would be tricky for young children and could use some storage or shelves and the queen mattress was tired. This was our second stay here and will definitely come back!

Wonderful Cottage

  • 5 of 5
Perfect place while in town for a wedding. My young son loved seeing the horses! The cottage is so cute and very clean, we did not want to leave! Very close to town and beaches. The owners are very friendly and we will definitely stay again!

Great location for a MI getaway

  • 5 of 5
Debbie and Jeff were wonderful hosts with a great cottage for rent. Very helpful with restaurant recommendations and other activities; we also boarded 2 horses with them during our stay, which worked out great. Lots of riding right from the property. Nite that the upstairs loft sleeping is accessible by a ladder only - but the couch in the main room works great for a second sleeping area. Highly recommend this property - very convenient to Sutton's Bay with lots of great shops and restaurants.
