Northern Michigan Apartment Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 7)

Come and relax on the eastern shore of Suttons Bay and watch beautiful ever changing sunsets come alive. Roll down the driveway past the tall trees and enjoy the peaceful serenity of Stoney Point. Enjoy the 95 feet of beach and the clear water right outside your door (on the second floor) or use the fire pit on the private beach after the sun goes down. As you look across the water towards the village of Suttons Bay, you can see the definite mark of pale blue to the deeper blue of the Bay, perfect for swimming and boating. Sun bathing, reading a book or just enjoying a nice cup of tea or coffee on the deck can be relaxing.

Nestled back in the trees on a quiet road, 3 miles from the village of Suttons Bay, this second story, bayside retreat is an ideal location for a relaxing vacation. Explore the natural beauty and serenity of the Leelanau Peninsula by walking or biking down the many roads. Just minutes from orchards, public beaches and parks, marina facilities, unique shops, antique dealers, and many local wine-tasting establishments.

Sounds of waves and breezes can be heard off the covered balcony of the Second Story Suite, while facing spectacular Bay views and beautiful sunsets. Once inside there is one large bedroom with a twin and full bed, lots of closet space and a comfortable living room with built in bookcases. (There is a queen bed off to the side.) It includes a fully equipped kitchen/dining combination with closet and pantry. This 750 square feet Bayside Suite comes also with a queen size sleeper couch. Just off the kitchen is a bath with shower/tub, shelving & medicine cabinet.

Nearby attractions include Interlochen Center for the Arts, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, which includes the Dune Climb, the Pierce Stocking Drive, and the old Coast Guard Rescue Museum, Peterson Park with beautiful views of Lake Michigan, grills and equipment for the kids to play on, Grand Traverse Lighthouse Museum, and many wineries and orchards throughout the countryside.

These are both no-smoking facilities and please no pets. All you need to bring is your food, a favorite pillow if you want, and beach towels.

This would be a great place to rent for the year or from Sept-June!

1st Visit To Leelenau Peninsula

  • 4 of 5

Really loved the area - Autumn colors in fulls dispay. Found plenty of things to do - almost overwhelmed by the possibilities. Enjoyed hikes at Pelizzaro Natural Area, Cathead Bay, and in and around the Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore Park. Pyramid Point Trail was very nice.

Property nice although heating in apartment not very even - very warm in bathroom, while cool in living area.

Had opportunity to meet property owners and enjoyed getting to know them. Built a fire in pit near beach and they joined us and shared their experiences in the area

We look forward to a follow up visit to area.

Great weekend get away!

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a great time at this apartment for a long weekend. Comfortable and clean. Gorgeous views of Sutton's Bay. We enjoyed swimming and late night bonfire. The owners were friendly and easy to work with. The apartment is close to all types of Northern Michigan fun. We hiked, golfed and enjoyed the sunsets.

very beautiful spot.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is conveniently situated on a quite area of the bay. The view is beautiful and the dock is perfect for a nice swim. And the owners are very nice and accommodating. They worked with us for a last minute vacation and were prompt on answering emails. Thank you!

Suttons Bay Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time that I tried a rental with VRBO. It was a great experience.. The owners are very hospitable.

The cabin is accommodating and nicely furnished. The view is spectacular and it is great to sleep with the sound of the waves from the Bay. We plan on returning; hopefully soon.
