About Lori Beuerle

I live in Denver, Colorado and own a canine physical therapy business. I left Michigan after I graduated from college because I wanted to live in the mountains. It has been wonderful but do look forward to returning to Suttons Bay Michigan some day.

Lori Beuerle purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Lori Beuerle chose Northern Michigan

Suttons Bay is my childhood home. I purchased this property for my retirement. I am happy to share this property with people because Suttons Bay and Leelanau county is a very special place. It hasn't been touched by big box stores and provides a wonderful setting to get away from it all.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great house! Worked perfectly for our family. We've always loved the area and can't wait to return! Thanks!

Beautiful, relaxing cottage

  • 5 of 5

We just returned form a very relaxing week in a beautiful, CLEAN and well equipped cottage. This cottage was comfortable, clean, and in a great location to the town of Sutton's Bay. It is an easy walk to th marina, to the beach, to dinner and town.

We've rented homes/cottages in many vacation towns across the US, and this was by far my favorite!

Enjoy your stay,..

Clean and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The cottage was clean and comfortable. It was nice to be able to include our dog on our vacation, since the cottage is pet friendly. We utilized the kayaks and canoe and enjoyed spending time on the private beach across the street.

We visited Sleeping Bear Dunes, Traverse City, the state park near Northport and downtown Suttons Bay. Our kids visited some of the wineries.

We played some of the board games that were provided. We would have liked to play two additional ones, The Survival Game and Trivial Pursuit (DVD edition), but both of these were missing the cards needed to play them.

Great time in Suttons Bay!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for two weeks at Lori's house. It was perfect for us. Our daughter, son-in-law and 2 year old granddaughter were with us for part of the time as was our son. The beach is great and having the toys and beach chairs there is a real plus. The house is very clean with plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. The kitchen is well equipped. We walked to town several times to eat, shop or just people watch. I would highly recommend this home.

Girls weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect weekend for my sister's bachelorette weekend. She wanted a laid back weekend up north with her girl friends on the water. Lorie was extremely helpful and accommodating. The house is beautiful and perfect for a group or families. There is a nice back porch with a grill, a full kitchen, and a lovely spacious master bedroom. The cottage is walking distance to downtown, and the beach across the street is beautiful and sandy. Her mother lives in the house on the beach across the street and we felt welcome to use it. I would definitely suggest this cottage to other renters! Thank you Lorie.
