I have lived in this home years and have continually upgraded the property to make best use of the spectacular view with guest comfort in mind. There is not a better spot to come home to - I would like to say the only item you will overlook is the view!
Unobstructed waterfront living are 3 words to best describe this property. Imagine walking right out the door and 10 steps away you are in the sandy shallow waters of Suttons Bay! Imagine waking up in the morning listening to the water lap on the beach, take an early swim, jog right out the back door, sight an eagle or other fowl, and enjoy a lifestyle hard to parallel anywhere.
the property did not disappoint! We had 9 or us there-3 generations of a family-and all had a great time. beautiful sunsets, updated, large home with great common areas, both inside the home and out. we rented kayaks and used them frequently. some of the furniture (dining room chairs) were a bit worn, but that is my only, small complaint. you can see Suttons Bay from all three levels of this beautiful home
We had a wonderful vacation at the Sunset Cottage. It was described exactly as we found it to be. The sunset views each night were spectacular. All amenities were in great shape. We used the fire pit, hot tub, beach, gas BBQ, patio and porch for our family vacation. We brought bicycles with us and went on some long and short rides. The Sunset Cottage is the perfect place for relaxing, too. The owner has thought of everything to make the vacationers comfortable.
The design of this home provides central gathering areas, inside and outside. Easy access to the beach area with beach chairs and nice warm, shallow water for the children to play. The third floor bedrooms are outstanding in both design and decor.
Suttons Bay and the other M22 small towns provide several points of interest for short trips, each town have excellent public beach areas with playgrounds. Traverse City is an easy 15 mile drive if you enjoy the midsize city feel.
Overall, just a great place to spend your vacation.
My family (including my immdiate family of 5 along with both sets of grandparents) arrived on the first Saturday of July 2012. I was looking for a place where 9 people could have enoght space AND enjoy each other's company. Well, I found it in this rental!! The house was amazing and the outdoor areas made the stay exactly what we wanted it to be. We ate dinner there several nights using the SECOND full gormet kitchen in the lower level with patio right outside the door. The grill was great and the granite patio table allowed all 9 of us to sit around the table together which is very important to us. At home when the temp was 100+ degrees we were in Sutton's Bay outside of this home building a fire and sitting around a circle with blankets and roasting marshmellows. We shot off fireworks one night and I have never seen stars so bright and clear as from the third floor master bedroom balcony sitting outside at the end of the night enjoying a drink with my husband and feeling so blessed to have found a house we can enjoy with our parents and children. The shopping in Sutton's Bar is great. Sutton's Bay is the perfect place to make day trips from. We went around to different areas each day and went to the Cherry festival a couple times as well. I highly recommend this property especially if you are used to upscale accomodations as myself and family are.
My friends and I rented the Sunset Cottage over Labor Day to celebrate my 30th birthday. This home was AMAZING, even better than in the pictures. Even though we rarely wanted to leave the gorgeous house, deck, firepit, or lake, it was in a great location for wine tasting, dining, shopping, and near a grocery store. The owner was extremely friendly (stopped by to welcome us to the home), and was very helpful in helping us plan our weekend. I am looking forward to recommending to friends and family, or even coming back myself.
My boyfriend and I stayed here back in September 2011 with 3 other couples. This home is not only beautiful and furnished with upscale taste, it was spacious and very accomodating from inside out. The house is located on the beach where you can walk about 100 feet out before it drops. The sunsets were gorgeous along with the endless nights lit up with bonfires.
The property was clean and felt like home. I would highly recommeded this property and I would definitely stay here again!
The location was about 10 minutes from town and approximately 20 minutes away from wineries, great dining, etc. Traverse City is about a 25 minute drive as well.
