Overview

Northern Michigan Lodge Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 14

This is an amazing location in Suttons Bay village of Suttons Bay on West Grand Traverse Bay. Imagine 350' of crystal clear deep water all to yourself on 5 private wooded acres (there is a shallow area to the north part of shoreline). Home faces East for beautiful sunrise views. On N. West Bay Shore with a long driveway. Sleeps up to 14.

5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms lodge style home with a real railroad caboose car set up to hang out. Imagine impressing the kids or the grand kids! There are 2 bedrooms on the main level (King w/master bath with soaking tub and another bedroom with 1 Queen) and 3 bedrooms on the upper level (2 Queens,bunk+2 Twins).There is also a Twin sleeper sofa in reading area (with a wall of books!). There is one bathroom on the upper level. In the caboose there is bedding for 3 with a daybed and 2 berth bunks. A little smaller than a standard bunk, but so cute and cozy. Think of the fun the kids will have at this memorable location.

The living room is grand with sweeping views of the bay and a large stone fireplace, stone tile floors and cherry hardwood throughout the house. Cable TV, DVD player, and WiFi. Kitchen has been updated with stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops. There is plenty of space for the chef in the family.

Outdoors, the deck is huge. Great for grilling and watching the kids on the lake. The water is deep enough to moor your boat. Sit on the dock and watch the boats sail by. Gas grill and fire pit.

Close to several wineries, casino (just down the road) shopping and so much more. Traverse City is a 17-mile trip. Head north on M-22 to explore Omena and Northport. Sleeping Bear Dunes are about 30 minutes away. The fall colors are spectacular in this area!

Open year round--the caboose car does NOT have plumbing in the colder months. Sunday - Sunday during prime summer time. Short stays considered for all shoulder months.Caboose is not available from Labor Day to Memorial Day.

Central air conditioning. Linens are included. No smoking. Your well-mannered pet is welcome. Only one pet is allowed at this property.

This is a Sunday - Sunday rental for prime summer weeks. Short stays available off peak. This home is available all year long.

Located near Leelanau Casino, and many wineries. Northport and Omena are a short drive. There are so many things to do in this fabulous area. The village of Suttons Bay is only 5 minutes away. Here you can play, dine, go to the movies, play in the park or do some major shopping. The Leelanau Trail can be picked up very close to this location and travels all the way to Traverse City. Bring your bike and take a ride through the county! Bike rentals available in the village of Suttons Bay. The Inland Seas School ship is also in this great little town. Plan a day of family activities and experience the Bay like never before.

Reviewer Comments:

I was hosting a Bachelor Party for my good friend. We had plenty of room with the 14 guys. Everyone loved the setting; secluded, on the water, close enough to town, open layout and a big back porch. Could not have been happier with the house.

Reviewer Comments:

Caboose Royale is a great vacation location for family. We loved the open large open spaces to congregate and hang out. The yard was huge with a special walking trail through the woods with unique art expressions along the way. As an artist, this was an added bonus and a great way to spend some quiet time reflecting. The only downside to this property for our trip, was the sleeping arrangements. It says it sleeps 14 but that is a stretch if you have all adults in your group. Two of the beds are located in the caboose which does not have a bathroom or running water. The beds are not large enough to sleep an adult. Same thing goes for the bunk situation in one of the bedrooms in the house. A couple of the bunks were very small and not a normal sized twin. I wish the sleeping arrangements in the description were more clear... For example: How many bedrooms and what size beds were available. In our situation there was only adequate sleeping for 10 adults. In spite of this one issue, we had a great time here and would come back with a different number of people. :) Peaceful enjoyable property.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at Caboose Royale and are pleased you enjoyed many features at this great home. We have noted on the photos the description of the sleeping arrangements so they are accurate as posted. The Caboose had a unfortunate break inthe water line and was not something that could be fixed in a day. We really do apologize for that. It has been repaired and has running water. WE hope you will visit us again.

Reviewer Comments:

We originally rented The Dazzling Bayshore and when we arrived the furnace was broken. After about 5 hours of calling and texting back and forth with the agent, we ended up moving to the Caboose Royale which was ok, but a very different "feel"....much older, smelled musty and not what we were looking for. The Caboose rental also clearly had pets in the past and one of our guests has allergies and was miserable the entire weekend. We did get a $300 refund, but I feel that was not sufficient for the trouble as well as the overall difference in property. The agent helping us on Friday night was very nice and I believe she did what she could, but I'm not sure I will use Visit Up North again.
