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 enjoyed this little gem so much. The view of the bay was breathtaking! The cottage was very clean and comfortable. We spent a lot of time on the screened porch, relaxing watching the bay. the kitchen met all our needs and more. Our dog loved the cottage as well! And so close to Suttons Bay! We will be back. :)
This was one of our favorite getaways so far! Our first time in northern Michigan and it was everything we hoped for and more. Our fondness for the cottage grew throughout the week. It was clean and super accommodating for the 2 of us and our 2 dogs. The screened in porch facing the lake is a bonus, especially in the morning and evenings. The sunsets are amazing, but we really enjoyed coffee on the porch in the morning and afternoons by the dock. Our dogs loved the yard, especially the hill. They used it to chase their toys and dry off by sliding on their back down the hill.
Suttons bay is absolutely breathtaking. Its crystal clear and very calm especially most mornings. The water temp was perfect during our stay and even refreshing on a couple of the hotter days. Reesie, our water loving dog, couldn't get enough. The water depth was perfect for for doggy paddling.
My favorite was the paddle board rental. The calm waters are great for the novice paddle boarder. We rented for a day, but next time will rent for the week.
The town of Suttons bay is less than 5 minutes away. It was a little busy during our stay, but we ordered carry out from a few of the places and Hansons (grocery) provided everything we needed for the rest of our meals.
We had the best lake perch and whitefish from Boones pub. We stopped for cherries, sweet corn and honey at local road stands.
The location is perfect for touring around the area on short day trips.
It's like a step back in time. No chain restaurants/stores for miles. It will definitely be one of our top destinations. Can't wait to come back.
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.
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! 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!"
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.
