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!

Reviewer Comments:

The location was great and the view was amazing. Wish we could have stayed here in the summer, but it was still beautiful in the winter. The only things we were disappointed in is that is snowed the day of or night before and the driveway wasn't clear. It also has a steep staircase down to the house and there was no shovel or salt so we had to get those so we wouldn't fall going in or out of the house. There were also quite a few dead bugs in the house, which since it was the middle of winter made me feel like the house hadn't been thoroughly cleaned before we got there.

Owner's Response: Boy we are sure sorry about the plow. They were contacted but we have do idea when they don't plow if we are not notified. With the huge temperature swings we have had there have been insects hatching -something we typically don't have to deal with in the winter . Be assured it was cleaned.

Reviewer Comments:

Property description was good. It was perfect size for our family. It was not clean to my standards when we arrived and did not appear to have a professional cleaning done. Lots of sand under couches, by door way and LOTS of gnats. The chandeliers and lights appeared as though they haven't been cleaned in a while. The beach area needs to be cleaned up, if some of the foliage was taken out, there would be more beach area. There were vines growing up the windows that took away from the views and made it difficult to open the windows. The view is spectacular from dining room and location is perfect to town.

Owner's Response: I am sorry that you didn't have the perfect stay. What you are calling gnats are fruit flies and we do have a flyer that goes out about how to minimize them but during the harvest in an area close to vineyards you are going to see them. Also some of the foliage is not allowed to be removed from some of the beach area it would depend on what it is but we will check it out. I hope you will try our company again and maybe we will find you a better location.
