My husband and I bought this property in 2006 because we love the area. Leelanau County is truly the Land of Delight. There is a view of the bay with a low-traffic peaceful setting.
This location lets you enjoy walking your dogs through the nearby cherry orchards and along the bays (both Suttons Bay and Grand Traverse Bay). Biking into town to get a cup of coffee, shop, discover unique art galleries, watch a movie, or dine in one of Suttons Bay's variety of restaurants lets you enjoy the incredibly beautiful views. It is even possible to kayak across Suttons Bay for dinner. Traverse City is only a short 20 minute drive away.
In the master bedroom there is a king-size bed with a hot tub located just outside the French doors. Upstairs there is also a queen-size bedroom across the hall from a spacious bathroom. The 'bunk-house' equipped with four single beds is a great place for kids. Downstairs there is a bedroom with a full-size bed. A baby bed is available upon request. In the den area there is a comfortable futon for additional sleeping.There are several areas to relax in the open floor plan, a spacious living room with a 51” TV, sunroom (my personal favorite spot for reading), and kitchen with breakfast bar. Downstairs provides room for entertainment: a game table, 2 televisions, a video game system (Wii), jukebox and comfy sofas.
The yard provides an area for lawn games. Play a game of “horse” on the basketball goal in the driveway. Enjoy making s’mores or roasting hotdogs over a fire in the fire pit area.
