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!

A perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this cottage with four friends to celebrate my birthday this weekend, and it was just perfect. Andi was thorough and accommodating, and the cottage is beautiful, clean, and in a great location. The property feels secluded with a private beach and dock, but is an easy drive from downtown Sutton's Bay and Traverse City. We had 5 adults and were very comfortable; we could have easily had several more people. By the time we checked out on Sunday we were already talking about renting this cottage again in the future. Highly recommended!

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 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!
