About Nancy

We are an active working couple who moved into what was our Traverse City cottage 8 years ago. That is when we built the carriage house with the apartment above so there would be room for our children to come visit. We have a rescue dog on site- Scrappy, our 6 yr old Australian Shepherd mutt.

We are avid golfers, love wine ,art and music- which is why we found this to be an area perfect for us. It's amazing how many people we have met since living here who are so much like ourselves.

We are husband and wife home builder/remodelers- Grand Bay Building and Remodeling. We moved our business Up North from the Pinckney Chain of Lakes Area of Livingston County. We wanted to be somewhere our children and future grandchildren would loved to come and visit. Traverse City and Leelanau County have far surpassed our expectations. We absolutely love the activity and social aspects of the area. If you are looking for things to do and see- we can be very helpful.

We totally understand couples who are looking to move to the area. That's why we love the business that we're in- we can make the dream happen for others like we did for ourselves!

Nancy purchased this apartment in 1999

Why Nancy chose Suttons Bay

We used to come up north with our oldest son's travel soccer team for tournaments. Over a five year span, the entire family looked forward to our week here in August. We decided to look for a cottage that we could eventually move to when all of the kids were out of high school.

We checked out the entire area over the years- we knew that we needed parking- so some of those small lots right on a road were not for us. We also knew we would be working and needed to be close to town for meetings, supplies etc. Being just north of Traverse City allows us to miss the summer traffic from festivals and hotels on a daily basis. We are within 10 minutes of the action when we want it and we can enjoy wonderful Leelanau County every day.

Our place is located down at the water on a 1 acre site. M-22 is a wonderful access road to everything but we have lots of privacy and parking- exactly what fit our needs.

This area offers much in the way of entertainment.- The Dennos Museum always offers a wonderful exhibit and music performances in the Milliken Auditorium. There are many art galleries to showcase the talent here in Northern Michigan. Two small theatres: The State Theater downton Traverse City and The Bay in Suttons Bay are restored wonderful old theaters featuring great movies. Interlochen for the Performing Arts is a venue for wonderful music performances. Traverse City has The Old Town Playhouse for community theater.

The list goes on- as members of the 2 local Chamber of Commerces we have a really good source of knowledge for what's happening.

What makes this apartment unique

Vic and the dogs fish the Bay for salmon and lake trout so our boat is set with downriggers. We can boat to dinner from our dock-north to Knot Just a Bar in Omena Point or downtown Suttons Bay or south to Harbor 22. This is why we love West Bay- there are great places to travel to by boat . Sometimes we'll take a bottle of wine out on the boat to the island and watch the sun set and the moon rise. During Cherry Fest, we motor down by West End Beach and listen to music from the Cherry Festival Stage. We can anchor by the Holiday Inn on Friday nights and relax to music. Nothing beats watching the Air Show and fireworks from the water. Being located between Suttons Bay and TC has been perfect for us. Both have wonderful downtowns and restaurants. Festivals are a huge thing in this area and we're located close to all of them.

We are near the trails for biking, hiking and cross country skiing. We happen to love our closest golf course- The Leelanau Club. As avid golfers, the problem is finding the time to enjoy all of the courses.

The best thing about this place- you can hear the nosies of the bay- water lapping or waves crashing, seagulls & ducks, wooshing as swans lift off. The bay calms you down and brings you back to nature. Lately we've had herons spending lots of time in the beach grasses or our artesian well. We think it's a wonderful place and would really miss it.

What A GREAT PLACE

  • 5 of 5
I have been looking forward to this trip for months and it was well worth it. This was my 2nd trip to Michigan since April and my first time in Traverse City. The weather was pretty horrible but the quiet and solitude was great. They Layout of the property was near perfect a full length mirror could be helpful for a woman. Nancy and Victor are perfect hosts and are so lucky to live where they live.
The area itself has many good places to shop and the restaurants in the area are GREAT. The Apache Trout Grill was particularly good. As a photographer, I found many places to go with in a 35-45 minute drive. Even in the "off season" with less than perfect weather, I left TC with an array of great pictures.
In response to other reviewers, the shower is large enough for 2 people. :)

I hope to be back soon.

Loved the space and the view and the location

  • 5 of 5
My friend, Sandy, and I stayed at Restful Nest for a long weekend. Explored the area and enjoyed unusually warm late September. This property is 1/2 way between TC and Suttons Bay. Ideal location - quick into TC, but close to SBay and Leland and Northport. Great, numerous wineries in the area, too. The property was bright, airy, roomy, and very comfortable - even the sofabed. Kitchen was well equipped and we loved the large shower in the bathroom. Plenty of room for just the 2 of us. There was even a desk and wifi which I used to work a few hours before we started our day on Friday. Plenty of clean, fresh towels and hooks in the bathroom for us to use. Very, very comfortable - the best we have stayed at via VRBO in the TC area. Would absolutely consider staying here again. Sitting on the balcony, looking at the bay is just wonderful!

Nice Hideaway!

  • 5 of 5
Property sits well back off the main road; hardly any traffic noise. Very nice and roomy, with full kitchen and utensils, if you wanted to cook. Perfect for a couple's getaway. Near many wineries and other interests of the area. About 8 minutes out of downtown TC, easy to get to. Owners friendly and helpful. Everything you need is provided for. Will visit again when staying in area.

Excellent--highly recommended

  • 5 of 5
My two daughters and I really enjoyed our stay at "The Restful Nest." It is portrayed very accurately in the VBRO ad and the owners have thought of just about everything to make your stay very comfortable It is conveniently located to Traverse City, and both the Leelanau and Mission Peninsulas. We were 20 minutes from Leland and barely 30 minutes from Sleeping Bear Dunes.

Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriends and I recently visited TC for a wine tasting weekend. The rental property was adorable! Very clean. There were plenty of towels and blankets. The wireless internet was a big plus. Everything was just as they had advertised. I absolutely would recommend this rental to my friends and family.

The Leelanau Peninsula has about 25 wineries and Mission Peninsula offers close to 20. This area is definitely known for the quality of the grapes producing award winning wines. Micro breweries have also blossomed- for the beer lovers.

Not to miss is a day trip around Leelanau County following M-22 (which we are located on) thru Suttons Bay - north to Northport and around the peninsula to the Sleeping Bear National Park. All along the shore are wonderful beaches and hiking trails- make sure to visit historical Fishtown located in Leland. Make a stop in Glen Arbor as you're getting closer to Empire. These small Michigan towns each have a unique feel to them which offers a real Northern Michigan experience.

Another day trip is to take M22 south toward Traverse City and follow US31 north - stop at Elk Rapids, continue north to Charlevoix and lastly to Petoskey.

If you continue past Petoskey on US31 north you're heading to the Mackinac Bridge which is site to see and to drive over to the Upper Peninsula .

A full day trip from our place is to head directly to Mackinac City - take the ferry over to Mackinac Island. A step back in time with no cars- only walking, bikes and horse drawn carriages for transportation. Rent a bike and travel around the island for a beautiful site seeing trip. Dress up and visit the Grand Hotel for a real treat.

Once you're here we are very happy to answer questions and give you other ideas of things to do. During the summer it seems that every weekend another town has a festival going- much art, music and wine tasting!!
