Suttons Bay House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom (Sleeps up to 11)

A great getaway in a perfect location - 3 miles south of Suttons Bay, 12 miles North of Traverse City in the middle of beautiful Leelanau Peninsula and Michigan wine country. Spacious 3 bedroom/2 bath home on West Grand Traverse Bay with deck, dock, and 100 feet private sandy beach frontage. An open floor plan with large windows provides stunning views of the Caribbean blues of the bay and a great yard for playing and relaxation. It’s easy to fall in love with the area, and your 'home away from home' just like we did. We hope you quickly become repeat guests!

Perfect for families or girls' weekends with various spaces to relax, read, play games, catch up, and hang out. This home is comfortable, casual and you never have to feel 'on top of each other.' We’ve provided an overview below of what the home offers. Let us know what you're looking for to make your stay enjoyable - We're happy to help!

BEACH/PROPERTY - The property is on the water and has direct access to the waterfront - no roads or other barriers to cross. The sandy beach is at the end of the grass down a few steps, and features a bonfire pit perfect for roasting marshmallows and telling stories. The water is shallow for a long way out and excellent for children. Situated south of the Lee Point cove, the water is calm for floating the afternoon away. A dock, canoe, kayaks and sand toys are available for guest enjoyment. The water has a mix of smooth sand areas and some areas with stones/small rocks. Water shoes may be a consideration depending on personal preference.

BEDROOM/BATHS - The master has a king bed; second bedroom has a queen; and the third bedroom has a full/twin bunk and another twin. There is a twin in the game room, a pull out queen couch bed in the family room, another extra-long couch in the 4 season backroom, and a child’s car-shaped bed with crib mattress. Two full bath rooms – one with two sinks and tub/shower; second with one sink/shower. There is an air-conditioning unit in the back/sunroom (main living area), an attic fan to pull in lake breezes and cool the bedrooms, ceiling fans in each room, and additional floor fans available.

AMENITIES – This is truly “home away from home.” There is a 'game room' with air hockey and foosball as well as a great selection of children's toys (Legos, Geotrax, Lincoln logs, Tinker toys, blocks, cars, doll etc). There are many board games, cards, children's books and a selection of adult books and magazines for a relaxing summer read. You’ll have all the conveniences including Wifi, cable, phone, bed linens, pillows, towels, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, blender, griddle, toaster, waffle iron, toaster oven, tableware, flatware, utensils, cookware, bakeware, serveware, fridge, stove, full size washer and dryer, gas grill, and deck furniture. We provide body wash, hand soap, dish soap, dishwasher detergent, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, Kleenex, and napkins. There is typically a wide array of condiments and most common spices as well.

THINGS TO DO - The area hosts many activities; see the 2014 schedule below. In addition to the over 20 vineyards in Leelanau County, this home is less than 10 miles from the Leelanau Sands Casino, and close to local farm markets, shopping, excellent dining, golf courses, bike trails, art galleries and all of the many other attractions of desirable Leelanau peninsula. The Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes are very popular, and Fishtown in Leland is a great afternoon visit. Catch the sunset over Lake Michigan in Leland at The Cove and Rick's Café. Sample the wines of the Leelanau and Mission Peninsula wineries. Enjoy various outdoor activities or spend a few hours with the amusements at Pirate's Cove, or fishing at Veronica Valley.

NO SMOKING OR PETS allowed anywhere.

We live in the Detroit area with our 3 school aged children. We grew up in Michigan - one on the west side and one on the east, and have vacationed in northwest Michigan for the past 16 years. We have always loved the Leelanau peninsula and are so excited to have this home away from home. We've built great memories with family and friends already and look forward to building many more. Purchasing a home up north was a dream of ours and we love our place. We've been slowly improving it over time; rescuing the home from inattention, the beach from disrepair, and the yard from major overgrowth. It's been hard work, but a labor of love to create a place we think is special...and hope you do too!

Mary and Brian purchased this house in 2011

We fell in love with the view the minute we walked in the door and saw the view out the back windows (you'll see!). The large, open, casual and comfortable feel of the place was exactly what we were looking for. It's beautiful in the summer, stunning with color in the fall, and picturesque & cozy in the winter. We love the location with so many activities nearby, yet the quiet of being North of Traverse City. It's the perfect place to relax with friends and family.

It's great to be in an area where you feel 'away from it all' but also to have access to restaurants, retail, reasonable groceries, entertainment, wineries, a casino, and amazing outdoor beauty within a 5-15 minute drive. You can't ask for more!

A group of my friends and I rented this home to experience the beautiful Michigan countryside for fall. The home was adorable.....so homey and comfortable! The location is convenient - we were able to see wineries, fishtown and the dunes easily. The lake view is magnificent and the owners have the home well stocked with everything you could need. Plenty of room for a large group. While I was making the reservation, the owner was accommodating and responsive to my questions. Would definitely stay at this house again!

A great experience from start to finish. Owner is very helpful and quick to respond when questions arise. House, beach and amenities were perfect. The house is in a great beach location; there are plenty of water toys and life jackets for safe lake fun. Water is shallow so it's perfect for kids. The kitchen is nicely stocked with all the pots, utensils or dishes you need--the only things to bring are your food and drinks!
We had three families spend 5 nights with a total of 6 adults and 6 young kids. There's plenty of room for a blowup mattress or two if necessary. The house is centrally located on Lelanau Peninsula; easy drive to all towns and wineries. My husband and I also enjoyed running and biking every morning as it's close to a biking trail and less traveled side streets. Bonuses included beautiful sunrises and easy pick up/drop off of one family at the Traverse City Airport. We will definitely rent again.

A clean, homey, comfortable and fully stocked house right on the water. The water is clear and clean and cold--just lovely. It's shallow for a long way out, so great for young kids. Kayaks and a canoe are available to take out on the lake. There's a lawn, sandy beach, a fire pit and bar-b-q and lots of fun toys in the house for the kids.
Convenient to Suttons Bay, which is a small and sweet town.
The owner was very responsive and helpful.
We had great meals at #9 Bean in Suttons Bay, Stellas and Amical in Traverse City

We had a great time on vacation and the property was excellent! Nice beachfront area, a campfire pit, very nice dock for fishing and wading around in the lake (water was pretty warm too!). The house is spacious and comfortable. For nature lovers - there's even a bald eagle family that nests nearby and can be seen cruising around the waterfront. Look forward to a visit next year!
