About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

Please inquire as to available discounts and/or exceptions to minimum night stay requirements. Exceptions will be considered when there are gaps in the reservations calendar shorter than the minimum night stay.

Charming 3 bedroom/2 bath home on Suttons Bay with deck and private lakefront with 232 feet of shoreline - no road between the house and the water. Very secluded, sleeps 10. Completely furnished, including grill, patio furniture, washer and dryer, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker and French press, dishwasher, towels and linens. A dock, canoe, kayak, and an offshore swim raft are available for your enjoyment. Also has Wi-Fi internet access at no extra charge. No smoking or pets please.

The three bedrooms are all of good size; two have queen beds, and the third bedroom has two XL twin beds in it. All new bedding sets for 2012, new queen beds for 2013. All new flooring in 2015. Remodeled kitchen and bathrooms in 2017. Two full bath rooms with towels are included for your convenience, as well as a full size washer and dryer. All major appliances are new for 2013. An open kitchen and dining/living room area with large windows overlooking the sparkles on the water will leave you breathless!

A great waterfront home in a great location!

Take a short stroll north along the shoreline to the Raftshol Vineyard's Wine Tasting Room, mention Chris sent you, and the first bottle is on me! While you are there, sample their many flavorful award winning vintages.

Need to stay plugged-in while on vacation? Use our free Wi-Fi internet access.

Have a boat? Tie up to our secure mooring, and use our dock and canoe for access. Of course, the canoe is also available for guests without a boat! We also provide a kayak and an offshore swim raft.

Very secluded and private location - the north side of the property is adjacent to wooded undeveloped farm property. The house is about 150 heavily wooded yards east of M-22 - creating a pleasant and welcome buffer from the road (which is not visible from the house). The property is on the water and has direct access to the waterfront - no roads or other barriers to cross. The lakeshore is 17 stair steps below the house/deck. As you stroll the shoreline, watch for the bald eagle nests in the adjacent treetops.

Lakefront conditions: As with all lakefront property, the size and sandiness/rockiness of the lakefront varies from year to year along our 232 feet of lake frontage, depending on the ever-changing Lake Michigan water level, winter ice, waves and storms, etc. It is typically a mixture of smooth pebbles and sand. We maintenance the lakefront regularly to provide the best possible conditions that these natural variations will allow.

Located next to a vineyard, and just 2.5 miles north of Suttons Bay, this charming home has so much to offer and couldn't have a better location or view. Aside from the 28 vineyards in Leelanau County, this home is only a few miles from the Leelanau Sands Casino, and close to local farm markets, shopping, dining, art galleries and all of the many other attractions of the picturesque Leelanau peninsula.

The area hosts many activities; including the Cherry Festival and other local festivals, arts and crafts shows, concerts in the park, casinos, wineries, the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes (a must), performances at the Interlochen Arts Academy and the Opera House; you're certain to stay as busy or as relaxed as you want to be.

Enjoy charter fishinig boats, catamaran sunset cruises, parasailing (for those who are brave), jet-ski rentals, hot-air balloon rides, our local markets, cherry picking (and other fruits depending upon the season), and hiking trails.

Looking to golf? Perfect area for that! Fantastic golf courses surround Traverse City. Want to go fishing? Look no further. Shopping? How about a large mall, an outlet mall, and amazing local shops to find that special treasure. The dining is also fabulous, and we have amazing local chefs that will prepare scrumptious meals that you`ll want to tell your friends and family about, not to mention the many restaurants with gorgeous waterfront views.

Cancellation Policy: If Renter wishes to cancel his/her reservation, reservation deposits, rents and taxes are non-refundable unless the vacancy can be filled at the same rate. Partial refunds will be made if the vacancy can be filled at a lower rate, to the extent that the total rent collected exceeds the original rate. In addition, all cancellations are subject to a $100 rebooking fee. If you must cancel your reservation, we will do our best to rebook.

Why Chris Lange chose Northern Michigan

The property was part of the Raftshol family cherry orchard when my grandparents and great-grandparents were alive. The cherry orchard has become Raftshol Vineyards, owned and operated by my Uncle Warren.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Chris,

I just wanted to say how much we all enjoyed the 'cabin'. It exceeded my expectations! I was very pleased at the contents provided. I have a week at a time share and your house certainly was as nice.



I know that you are in contact with Doug, but I just wanted to let you know my thoughts as well.

Beautiful house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The owners have a lot of pride in their property. The kitchen is the nicest one we have experienced in a rental house. The beds were the most comfortable as well. Just a great property overall.

Nice property, quiet, and a great location

  • 5 of 5

Having never been to this area in Michigan before, we found it to be a great location. Overall this area is great for families and people like us who just want to kick back and relax. The home is in a perfect location. It was quiet and had everything we needed. It was clean and the kitchen is beautiful. It definitely would accommodate 6 people comfortably. Would recommend this property to friends.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

First off the house was very very clean. The house was as described the only thing not there was a fire pit. We would definitely stay here again. The layout of the house is perfect. Anything you could possibly need was here. We have three small children and the house was child proof even down to the blind string holders. The beds were very comfy. I love that the sheets and towels are white.

Great memories made here to last a lifetime. The location is nearby to everything. I liked that Suttons Bay was a little more quiet than Traverse City. Sleeping Bear Dunes is a must see approx. 45 min away.

The owner was very prompt with any questions I had and easy to deal with.

Owner's Response: Glad to hear that you all had such a great time Michelle. Yes, due to the rising lake level in recent years, the fire pit that was just above the water's edge this spring has been submerged...so we have now made a new one higher up on the beach. Thanks for your nice review, and we look forward to having you and your family again in the future! Chris
