Northern Michigan Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-5)

The charm of Moonglade Cottage has been captivating families and summer guests for the past 40 years. Location, amenities and the natural beauty of the surrounding area are what keeps these guests returning year after year.

Situated on the eastern shore of Suttons Bay, Moonglade boasts of spectacular sunsets framed by the twin birch trees from the deck off the master bedroom. The screened in porch with antique wicker furniture awaits you at days end to relax or simply hear the pristine blue water of Suttons Bay lap on the beach. The porch is a great place to take a nap or just read a great book while the midday sun hovers ahead. The cottage is equipped with all wood or tile floors (no carpteing), granite/tile bath, compact yet efficient kitchen with all full size appliances and Fisher/Paykel dishwasher, 2 bedroom (queen and doouble/twin bunk) 2 flat panel TV's and all of the amenities of home.

The ambiance of the village of Suttons Bay lies just 2 miles away. Playing host to award winning restaurants, art galleries, and boutique shopping, Suttons Bay is another constant reminder of why guests travel to Leelanau County.

The heartbeat of Northwest Michigan is Traverse City located just 15 minutes away with world class restaurants, shopping and entertainment at nearby Interlochen Center for the Arts or Dennos Center. Be sure to take advantage of it all!

There is NO DOCK due to the low water levels. Swimming is still great but you have to walk out quite far to get waist deep.

We stayed here for a long weekend. Even though the weather was more like late fall than early spring it did not deter us from enjoying the area. Just a short drive across the peninsula to Fishtown or a short drive down M-22 to Traverse City and just a few minutes drive to the village of Sutton's Bay you will stay busy, even if the weather does not allow you to boat or swim. The property is right on the water and has a staircase coming off the seawall into the water. We hope to come up when it is warmer so we can enjoy the water as well.

Great find!

  • 4 of 5

This cozy cottage was clean and offered just the right amenities for a weekend away. Cable and wifi were great since the weather was terrible when we visited... the storms were vicious! Unfortunately, again as a result of weather, we didn't get to enjoy the outdoor facilities, but hope to another time.

Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Perfect! Cozy! Clean and all you need. Lovely area and close to anything you might want to do on Leelanau Peninsula. We are particularly infatuated with Suttons Bay, so it was a great place to spend a week with our 4-legged "baby!"

Pretty view.

  • 3 of 5

The property was well located and had a great view. The interior is in need of a update. The owner could stand to refurbish linens and towels. Great communication, very accomidating for a late checkout.

Marvelous Moonglade Cottage

  • 5 of 5

In all our travels through out the US, this little gem is our favorite. Quiet, clean, comfortable and convenient. This cottage is the whole package. The Moonglade does VRBO proud. Tom is such a wonderful host, made us feel very welcome and at home. Keep your over priced 4 star hotels, this is paradise!

  • 5 of 5

What a gem ! We had a wonderfully relaxing week. family of four, two kids ( 13 and 11) plus our Lhasa. Prime location away from the craziness of the city. Listening to the waves from the beach, deck and bedroom was bliss. Immaculate ! Easy to maintain as well. Owner is lovely and very friendly with great recommendations ! We love this area of Michigan, and look forward to returning next year !
