Comfortable and complete cottage, prime location

  • 5 of 5

My family has stayed at this cottage twice and are planning to go back again. The owners know alot about the area, and are always happy to chat and help with any needs. Three features that make this cottage a prime place to stay are 1) The cottage itself: comfortable, fully furnished, and has enough space to relax or play with your children, 2) Location within town: We could see the beach, marina, and were only a few steps from restaurants, shops, church, and a inexpensive movie rental shop, 3) Location on the penninsula: It doesn't get any better than Sutton's Bay for access to Traverse City, Sleeping Bear Dunes, Leeland, all the parks and hiking around Leelenau, and easy access to the wine (and cider) country.

A perfect getaway in a charming town

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was fantastic! Sutton's Bay is a nice change of pace from the bustling, often busy downtown Traverse City. My fiance, mother and I stayed here for a couple of nights and had a great time. We would definitely stay here again.

The owners were very accommodating. They were the sweetest elderly pair that wanted us to know about everything we could do in the area. They also own a bed and breakfast next to the cottage in this listing that I would be interested in staying at as well. The food one of the owners was cooking for breakfast smelled amazing. We had asked for linens to be provided and we had so many! There was also a ton of extra blankets as this area can get cool at night in the summer. We also had a couple of special requests as we were in the area for a short time - we asked if we could book the cottage for 2 nights instead of a week and if we could have a late checkout on Thursday due to a work conference call that had to be attended on vacation - both of these requests were accommodated with a smile.

The location was fantastic - a pub is 300 feet away, as well as, the rest of the Sutton's Bay Village. Even with all of the restaurants and shops nearby, it's still peaceful. The water is a short walk away and very visible from the cottage. The beach in front of the cottage has nice sand, volleyball courts and picnic tables. The property is also about a 10 min drive from some of the best wineries on the peninsula.

We're getting married in May at Blackstar Farms Vineyard (10 min away) - I will make sure to recommend this cottage to our out of town guests.

Good cottage with easy access to Leelanau Peninsula Sights!

  • 4 of 5

This cottage is very much as described. It has a great location in Suttons Bay where you can walk down to the beach area as well as the restaurants and shops in town. The cottage is equally good for its location on the peninsula - you have easy driving access to Traverse City, Sleeping Bear Dunes, and any other place on Leelanau. My husband, two small children, and I stayed here for the week and it was great for us! When our travels take us back to the peninsula, we will definitely consider staying here again!

Good spot.

  • 5 of 5

We really loved the location of this cottage. Actually in town, a short walk to restaurants and shops, with a water view and a great sandy beach and park across the street. We were surprised how large it was with 2 large bedrooms and 2 full baths. The landlords were very sweet people and although we had road construction, which they could not control, they were very concerned for our comfort. We will definitely be back to this cottage.

Our vacation at the Bayview Cottage in Suttons Bay was everything and more than we hoped it would be. The proximity to the park and beach were perfect for the young grand kids ages 3 to 10. The shallow water made us feel safe and the kids could not have had a better time. The cottage was very accommodating and comfortable. We felt very much at home there. In our short stay we were able to enjoy Leeland and the Sleeping Bear Dunes. Not to mention all the stores and restaurants in Suttons Bay and many of the stores in Traverse City. We will try to make it again next year but for a longer stay.

My stay at Suttons Bay cottage

  • 5 of 5

My stay at the Suttons Bay Cottage during July 14th thru July 21st was truly my most enjoyable vacation. Not knowing for sure what would be available at the cottage and what I needed to bring...I way over packed! The kitchen was complete, with everything needed for a meal in. Our group included 2 very small children and adults through age 82 years and the cottage was perfect. 5 stars to the owners for making our stay enjoyable. The most beautiful place I have ever visited, we hope to come again. There is so much to see and do.
