Northern Michigan House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

As you pull into the driveway and two-car garage from sleepy South Shore Drive, you are greeted by a pretty landscaped patio that may come in handy for lunch with your visitors or just to get relief from the sun.

The slate entry foyer leads you into the vaulted ceiling of the great room that architect Glen Arai has made the focus of this subtle beach house. Its redwood walls, brick fireplace, new carpet, and panoramic windows take full advantage of the sweeping views of Suttons Bay New carpet in living room and new hard service kitchen counter tops with beautiful new iridescent sea spray glass back splash walls in kitchen.

The beach is the best in the area..sugar sand and and beautiful clear water fantastic for swimming and just enjoying the shoreline and the boats that come in and out of the bay. Walking distance to the Village of Suttons Bay even along the beach if you prefer. Fabulous fall color, winery tours pure Michigan at its best.

The fireplace and AV/TV center separate the great room from the full kitchen that has been outfitted with the best appliances and accessories you might need for dining in high style in the adjacent bay view dining area. All new hard service counter tops and glass tile back splash new in 2011.

A step through the sliding doors opens out to the deck complete with Brown Jordan patio furniture. Five steps down and you are on the most beautiful sugar-sand beach to be found. The beach tapers into the water and is ideal for children or even a midnight swim.

The master bedroom opens onto a more private section of the deck and also has a magnificent view of the Bay.

Memorable, quality accomodations

  • 5 of 5

Our group consisted of five adults from out of town staying here for a family member's memorial service. We loved relaxing in the warmth and comfort of such beauty. The beachfront view of the lake, the proximity of downtown Sutton's Bay and ease if getting to Traverse City were appreciated by our family. The home was not designed for five adults but it worked for us. The appliances were easy to use. There was no sugar, salt, or pepper so we had to buy some, but there was delicious coffee and green tea stocked. We paid extra for towel service that provided luxurious towels. The owners took great care to ensure our needs were met. We were very impressed.

The pictures just don't do this rental justice! I was blown away over how beautiful it all was. The kitchen is spacious with a nice big stove. The beds are comfortable and everything was nice and clean. Oh and the VIEW! SO beautiful!! We woke up early every morning to watch the sunrise. I would stay here again...and often

Best place to stay in area!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for 7 days. The place is absolutely beautiful and in my opinion, has the best location on the bay, which is at the point of the bay. So when you are sitting on the deck you are looking directly at the whole bay empty into Grand Traverse Bay. Perfect beach at the house as well. Fire pit was great for the nights and roasting smores! The house itself is beautiful and quite spacious. We had 4 adults and 2 children and there was ample space for us. I really can't say enough about this house!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

I was reluctant to post a review because I did not want it harder to rent for next year. But in the end - felt I needed to do what is right. I have been "burned" in the past renting off the internet. Photos do not always reflect properties. In this case - I will say that the photos do not do it justice. Amazing location, clean, great value. I am heading back next year!
