Overview

Suttons Bay House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

My husband and I bought this property in 2006 because we love the area. Leelanau County is truly the Land of Delight. There is a view of the bay with a low-traffic peaceful setting.

This location lets you enjoy walking your dogs through the nearby cherry orchards and along the bays (both Suttons Bay and Grand Traverse Bay). Biking into town to get a cup of coffee, shop, discover unique art galleries, watch a movie, or dine in one of Suttons Bay's variety of restaurants lets you enjoy the incredibly beautiful views. It is even possible to kayak across Suttons Bay for dinner. Traverse City is only a short 20 minute drive away.

In the master bedroom there is a king-size bed with a hot tub located just outside the French doors. Upstairs there is also a queen-size bedroom across the hall from a spacious bathroom. The 'bunk-house' equipped with four single beds is a great place for kids. Downstairs there is a bedroom with a full-size bed. A baby bed is available upon request. In the den area there is a comfortable futon for additional sleeping.There are several areas to relax in the open floor plan, a spacious living room with a 51” TV, sunroom (my personal favorite spot for reading), and kitchen with breakfast bar. Downstairs provides room for entertainment: a game table, 2 televisions, a video game system (Wii), jukebox and comfy sofas.

The yard provides an area for lawn games. Play a game of “horse” on the basketball goal in the driveway. Enjoy making s’mores or roasting hotdogs over a fire in the fire pit area.

Keywords: tranquil setting, beautifully decorated, comfortable, with well-equipped kitchen, on the corner of Nanagosa and Lovers Lane, across from Vic Steimel Township Park with public access, nearby beaches

About Kim Speicher

I am a Spanish teacher at the Leelanau School located in nearby Glen Arbor. In the summer I serve wine part time at Leelanau Cellars tasting room in Omena. My husband, Dave, makes the award-winning raclette cheese at Leelanau Cheese. We enjoy travelling, sailing, biking, hiking, kayaking, walking our dogs,going to the beach, and wine-tasting.

Kim Speicher purchased this house in 2006

Why Kim Speicher chose Northern Michigan

Leelanau county has always felt like 'home' even before we moved to the area. My family has vacationed in this area since 1942. The quaint villages, lakes, sailing, parks, beaches have been the perfect place to vacation with our four sons. There are so many activities for all ages.

What makes this house unique

There are two kayaks available for guests to enjoy the bay across the street. It is fun to kayak around Stony Point to Suttons Bay.

Beautiful location near wonderful town of Suttons Bay, Michigan

  • 5 of 5

Great vacation home for families. Great shopping and dining town.

Neighborhood park across the street from this home with a quiet swimming beach. Wonderful home for families with children.

Dave and Kim have very comfortable furniture in this cottage home. Beds were very comfortable, nice bathrooms, amazing sun room with nice dining table.

Kitchen was a great place to cook with the family. We loved sitting around the large family dining table. We laughed and ate together. Nice large refrigerator.

great serving dishes. Everything we needed for cooking was available.

Bed linens were clean and comfortable. Great sleeping areas. Shaded yard and gardens. Wonderful windows that opened to lake breeze.

We could look out the front windows to a beautiful lake view. A very safe neighborhood.

Outdoor eating space. Plenty of parking space. basketball area.

We appreciated Kim and Dave's hospitality, and sharing their home with us. Living room was large and comfortable.

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

What a welcoming home for the weary traveler! Our stay consisted of 3 families coming together for a week of vacationing fun with 14 people in all. Not only was there enough room, but still had additional places to sleep. Kim and Dave have all the conveniences of home ready for their guests. From plenty of linens to highchair and crib to necessary kitchen and bath items. We thoroughly enjoyed the comforts of their home with the birds chirping every morning and the sunrise on the water to the kids being able to run and play in the yard. There is even a basketball net for a family friendly round of "H-O-R-S-E". If you are staying at the property, definitely try to visit the local towns nearby and of course Sleeping Bear Dunes. If staying at this house, be prepared to be pleasantly surprised!!

Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week in Suttons Bay for our 9 people of 3 generations! The house is nicely decorated, clean and very comfortable. The downstairs bedrooms great for parents and their kids. Pleasant sitting areas and nice kitchen and dining. We enjoyed grilling out several nights and had a great campfire. So fun to have kayaks available and water close by. Loved the town of Suttons Bay, their parks great for our kids and fun eateries. All surrounding area is lovely. The owners are very attentive. A wonderful time had by all!!

House Rental

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The house was well equipped and clean when we arrived. The owners were very nice to work with and accommodated all of our needs. Our weekend was very hectic as we were there for our son's wedding so we didn't get to enjoy the house as much as we would have liked to. Awesome area to stay.

Casa Speicher

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a wonderfully peaceful 6 days and nights here. We love the area and its closeness to town and all things northern as well as the many new farm to table eating places. We appreciated the many amenities including the hot tub and found the large dining area and family room space just right for working a jigsaw puzzle or reading. Owners were very friendly and helpful and dropped off delicious cheese from the Leelanau Cheese Co. All in all a delightful get away place.

Memorial Day stay for marathon and lake fun

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for the Bayshore marathon in Traverse City. The home was a great value and offered numerous amenities with the park and water access across the street as well as free access to kayaks. Had we stayed for a longer time we would have tried to paddle to Suttons Bay which is very close. I highly recommend this area and home for anyone staying for a long weekend or week. Traffic is not bad here and Suttons Bay offers everything you need.
