Reviewer Comments:

We were in the area for a wedding and found the location to be perfect. We were close to both the church and reception venue. Several people were able to stop by during the downtime after the wedding and enjoy the view. We had plenty of room. Our family enjoyed the cottage and found it to be very clean and well equipped with everything we needed. We spent a lot of time on the deck overlooking the bay just taking in the view.

We spent 6 nights at By The Bay-Suttons Bay. This is a nicely located home, situated closer to the beach so that it's below street level. Loved that there was no road noise at all. The beach area is stony, so bring water shoes. Water is so clear when not windy and wavy. Fun looking through the rocks! The house was clean and ready for us when we arrived. The layout of the house is good. There are stairs to enter the house, stairs inside to the 2nd floor, and stairs down to the water from the deck. Make sure stairs aren't a problem for your guests. We had no problems with them. The queen bed in the first floor bedroom is very, very firm and not very comfortable at all. All other beds were great! Lots of pillows and plenty of extra sheets and blankets. The towels provided were thick and lush, and very nice. The view is incredible! Wonderful lake views from every room. Gorgeous sunrises while drinking coffee on the deck in the mornings. We had a few small issues and management was very helpful and responsive. They did a great job. Overall, we did enjoy our stay here. It's a cozy setting on a beautiful part of Suttons Bay! We would stay here again.

this is the third time we have stayed there. Everything you need is right there. Kitchen is lacking nothing for your stay. 21 steps up and down to get into house if you have an issue with stairs consider that.

Reviewer Comments:

We loved our time at By-the-Bay! The house had gorgeous views of Lake Michigan out of the kitchen and bedroom windows, a nice little beach area and deck. It accommodated 9 easily, with use of the air mattress. House was clean and updated. Team was very responsive when we called about a shower head that wasn't working well they had it replaced within 3 hours. One small criticism is that the kitchen wasn't particularly well appointed. We made dinner several nights and struggled to find basics like serving bowls, mixing bowls, utensils.The layout upstairs is a little funky with a step coming out of the master that several of us tripped on - may want to add a nightlight to avoid mishaps. Overall, it was wonderful!

Nice house with 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. Overall we had a good stay (7 adults), but there were several disappointments: Queen bed in room with 2 twin beds was extremely hard - no one could stand it; shower in upstairs bath drained Very Slowly - standing in ankle deep water for most of shower; toilet seat in half bath had broken hinges; and steps very steep to/from parking area.

Lovely home with deck on Suttons Bay. Very clean with comfortable beds, well maintained. We appreciated that the owner allowed us to switch from another property with major repair issues midweek with our well behaved dog. Thank you!
