About the property

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.

A delightful experience

  • 5 of 5

We love it. We have been coming for several years and return as often as we can. The Moonglade is a compact,well-laid-out two-bedroom bayside cottage, tastefully decorated, with an open kitchen-living room space connecting to a spacious screened in porch. We like the fact that this creates a sizeable area for entertaining, something we regularly do, including a mini-family reunion last year. We have never seen a cottage that integrates exterior and interior spaces better than this one does. There are two patios, adjacent to the cottage one with a large table and chairs suitable for major picnic meals, either prepared in the well-equipped kitchen (with dishwasher) or on the gas grill, and another off the sliding glass door in the main bedroom. As we often need to finish up the last bits of work from our lives downstate, we appreciate the wi-fi. Yet another furnished area for congregating is down two short flights of stairs to the cement patio area on the water. It is all set in the non-touristy, rural Stony Point peninsula, dominated by woods, cherry orchards and not a few stately residences. Downtown Suttons Bay is a 5-10 minute drive away.

Beautiful cabin, great use of space, very well kept property

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time spending a long weekend at the Moonglade Cottage. It felt like our home away from home which was what we were looking for. The accessibility to wineries, shops, grocery stores, and breweries made it perfect for our trip North. We would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Love Moonglade❣

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth (fifth?) time at Moonglade and it never disappoints. Reasons to come here:

1. Beautiful views of Suttons Bay, which is shallow for safe swimming with kids (or without kids)

2. Perfectly located very near town but off busy M22; quiet neighborhood

3. The screened porch of my dreams overlooking the bay

4.You can bring your fur baby, but there is no evidence dogs have stayed in the cottage

5. The cottage is small, comfy, clean, and well appointed with stocked kitchen, comfy beds and lots of outdoor spaces where you can eat or hang out by the fire pit near the water (or just stay on the screened porch!)

6. Tom is a great owner and will ship your dirty clothes to you if you accidentally throw them in the trash😬�

Owner's Response: Delighted with our comments and happy to know you LOVE the Moonglade Cottage, it's amenities, and surrounding area! I think this was your 5th visit and I know not your last! I did peruse the garage and found no evidence of personal items left behind but if there were, rest assured, they would have been reunited with you! Looking forward to your next visit.

Nice little cottage, beautiful view of Sutton’s Bay. Nice wide dock right on the water where you can sit, and have a bonfire. So much to do up there. Wish we could of stayed longer.
