About Andi Brownell, Owner

My husband, Scott and I live in Greensboro, NC with our three children (8, 6 and 4). Scott is originally from Michigan and I am originally from Georgia. We met in graduate school in Atlanta and the rest is history!

Andi Brownell, Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why Andi Brownell, Owner chose Northern Michigan

After vacationing in Leelanau County for a couple summers we were in love with northern Michigan and decided to purchase a cottage to call our own. We cherish the time we get to spend at the cottage and truly feel it is a small piece of paradise! Every trip results in wonderful family memories wether we spend the majority of our time playing on our beach and floating in the bay or venturing around Leelanau County.

What makes this house unique

It is hard to beat the panaramic views of the bay from our property and walking steps from your back door to our thick sugar sand private beach!

Beautiful location and home. Everything you could need was there.

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect! Beautiful sunrises and a very peaceful area. The home was spotless and had everything we needed. We could tell the owners really put thought into making the home perfect for families and visitors. We would definately rent it again.

Magical Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here actually in October, 10-12, 2014. What a great relaxing spot. Highly recommended. If you enjoy a secluded residence on Lake Michigan then this is your paradise! Andi was wonderful to work with. Will stay here again! :)

Sutton Bay Gem!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a better place to stay in Suttons Bay! The cottage has all of the necessities to make your vacation enjoyable...pots and pans, air conditioning, plenty of towels, and most importantly it is very clean...cleaner than some high-end hotels that we've stayed at. It is located right on the bay with a large sandy beach and the swimming area in front of the beach has a nice sandy bottom...no water shoes needed! An added bonus is that it is extremely private...there is a neighbor on one side of the property and a park on the other which made it very peaceful. Andi is extremely easy to work with and will return your phone call or text within the hour should you have any questions/concerns! We really enjoyed our stay and cannot wait to go back!

Lovely family escape

  • 5 of 5

Our family (2 adults, 2 children under the age of 8) stayed here for a week and absolutely loved it. It was just the right size, offered all the amenities we were looking for (beautiful private beach, kayaks, shallow water, stocked house and kitchen), offered a great landing spot to explore the area, and the owner could not have been more accommodating and responsive. The kids loved the calm bay water, bunk beds and toys, the adults enjoyed the room seemingly right on the beach and the fire pit and close to dining/wineries/distilleries. I've recommended this property to several friends and we hope to return again soon!

BEAUTIFUL QUIET PLACE

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for two nights, and we absolutely loved it. The cottage is roomy and peaceful, and we enjoyed spending time on the water and watching the stars at night. When we did want to go out, the location between Northport and Suttons Bay was great for easily getting around to see the sights. We would definitely stay here again!
