We stayed in the large cottage with a group of friends and had a blast! With a gorgeous view of Suttons Bay, modern amenities in the kitchen, and plenty of space, you can have the Up North experience you've been waiting for! Access to downtown Suttons Bay is simple -- just a short walk to downtown and the cute shops and restaurants (that is, if you actually want to leave the cottage!). It has great access to championship golf and the plentiful wineries that dot the Leelanau peninsula. It is an extremely comfortable cottage with a multitude of bedrooms and bathrooms so the family or group of friends can stay together. My wife and I can't wait to visit again!
My husband and I stayed in the main house with 8 other friends for a weekend in May. Only a block from Suttons Bay downtown, we were able to walk to breakfast and the shops (at which we made several purchases), which was extremely convenient I would 100% recommend these cottages for a family, friends or even romantic vacation. There is space enough to sleep a lot of people and more importantly- enough bathrooms! You are also steps away from Traverse, the wineries, and right on the water. You can't beat that! Great "Up North" getaway!
My husband and I stayed in the big house with 4 other couples for a long weekend. We had an absolute blast. The linens and towels were top of the line. We cooked two nights and the kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed. We were able to walk to breakfast and into town each morning which was lovely, and enjoyed a perfect bonfire on the beach for our final night. Additionally, we enjoyed golf and a chartered wine tour within miles from the cottage. Highly recommend this house, it has everything you need for a fabulous experience.
My wife and I rented the Bayview Cottage. It had a nautical theme we loved. Very nice appliances. New paint throughout (white, blue, and a cheerful yellow). Really nice. Really clean. Very nice neighbors in cottages nearby who would wave but let you have your privacy. You just won't believe the views of Suttons Bay morning and night until you see them for yourself! Sailboats, I mean picturesque; really pretty. Beach is 30 yards out the door. Firewood provided. Near Sleeping Bear Dunes, Traverse City, and we even drove up and across the Macinac Bridge one day. Do yourself a favor and book the reservation. You will love it. It's really, really nice.
Beautiful waterfront property. Perfectly outfitted, ideal for a crowd like ours of five old friends. Room to spread out, a dock for swimming, laundry facilities, fabulous towels, a fireplace for late nights, and TVs, too. The owner provided sparkling wine, coffee and loads of helpful information. It's across the street from a terrific grocery store, and adjacent to two bike paths. A five minute walk into town for movies and dinner, plus loads of shopping. So much to see within a half an hour of the cottage, from wineries to dunes. Absolutely perfect!
Great place for a crowd. Thought the noise would be a problem but it wasn't since the back of the house faces the bay. My grandsons could play in the years without fear of any traffic. Kitchen was well stocked with plenty of dishes and good knives. We cook! Lots of towels too. I only request a shade in the room with one queen on the door to the little porch.
Our two combined families of 9 people (4 adults, 5 kids) had a wonderful time at this beautiful property and ideal setting. We had a boat with us, so the close beach access and dock worked out perfectly for us. We enjoyed being on a bike trail (the kids rode on it a lot) and near a sidewalk into downtown (2 blocks away) because we took advantage of that quite a bit with our whole crew. We could even walk across the street to a nearby new brewery. The 5-bedroom house accommodated all of us nicely, even allowing for guests to visit comfortably. We were glad to have WiFi access, a washer and dryer, and the outdoor grill. We would stay here again!
We stayed at this lake house for two nights during the winter while skiing and snow-tubing in Traverse City with two adults and four children: two 11-year-olds and two almost-5-year-olds. Communication regarding arrangements prior to our arrival was excellent and we encountered no problems finding the cottage or entering despite the fact that we arrived after 10 pm on New Years Eve! We were pleasantly surprised to find a bottle of sparkling wine and a package of locally made cookies to enjoy upon our arrival --- a nice touch! We loved the open-concept first floor that combines the great room, kitchen and dining area. The great room, with panoramic windows on three sides, provide a breathtaking view of the bay. The adjoining kitchen, which shares the bay view, was fully modernized with beautiful granite counters, stainless steel appliances, and modern cabinetry. It was stocked with everything needed to cook meals and eat comfortably in the dining area at the large farmhouse-style table. I felt like I was in a beautiful Pottery Barn or Arhaus inpired retreat. We enjoyed the many personal touches including the basket of 6 ultra soft lap blankets for snuggling under while watching the ball drop at midnight on the extra large flat screen TV, the Fiesta dinnerware that added color to our meals, and the games and books. We had plenty of space on the first floor for the small kids and adults while the pre-teens enjoyed TV and reading in the second floor loft room. Oh, and the house was spotless. The location was perfect with the lake view, the park next door, the grocery store across the street, the trail behind the grocery store stretching from Suttons Bay to Traverse City, one block from restaurants and shops. We had forgotten that the next morning after our arrival was New Years Day, and we couldn't buy groceries that morning, but there were restaurants open in Suttons Bay, one block away, so we had great options there. We highly recommend this house, the owners, and the management team. Everyone had a great time and wants to go back. The kids call it “our cottage." 5 stars!
My sister and I stayed in the two bedroom cabin during our annual wine tour weekend. The owner even had a bottle of wine waiting for us. The managers were friendly and communicated well. The place was clean and comfortably furnished with comfortable beds and a fully equipped kitchen. It is centrally located to all the wineries and hiking trails in the area. Also within walking distance of Suttons Bay which is a cute town full of shops, art galleries and good restaurants. Try 9 bean row for dinner (even though it looks like a bakery from the outside) and Martha's for breakfast. Both were very good farm to table types using locally sourced ingredients. Or stay in and cook on the gas stove, gas barbecue or fire pit! It was chilly when we stayed so no lake activities for us, but we enjoyed being cozy inside looking out at the lake. I highly recommend the place.
Nice way to have family stay together, but not easy for people age 55 and over. Bunk beds are not real comfortable. Beautiful view and we really enjoyed the fire pit! Easy to visit and enjoy Sleeping Bear Dunes for the day and the Leelanau Golf Club at Bahle Farm was close and very nice. Well equipped kitchen and nice updates to the bathrooms.
We came to town a few days early for a wedding and rented the main cottage, and the two bedroom, and another family member rented one of the one BR cottages. We all thought the layout of the main house was fantastic and it was very well appointed. The owners really took care of everything. Having the other two rentals (for a total of 22 people) was great for us! Campfires every night, space for the kids to run around, cookouts and walks into downtown, plus beautiful sunrises! We will be finding another reason to visit again!
The house and amenities were fantastic! We had four families with kids of all ages and had more than enough room. We rented kayaks, walked to town, spent time at the beach and ended the night with a bonfire. The property was clean and met our every need!
The location of the house was great and is within walking distance to town. Some of the upgrades made to the kitchen and bathrooms were very nice. If you enjoy cooking the kitchen was very well stocked. We didn't realize there is an apartment attached to the house until our friends, who stayed in the bunk room, were kept awake by the residents of the apartment who decided to cook and slam cabinets at all hours of the night and early morning. The master bedroom was decent but we could literally hear every single thing being said in the bedroom above us which made taking naps and sleeping in general difficult. Our friends who stayed in the other bedrooms said they couldn't hear much so I think the biggest problem with noise was in the master and bunk room. Also, because cars can still go 55 mph on M-22 just outside the house there was a lot of traffic noise too. Overall it suited most of our needs and is a good house for a stay with friends or family. I'd only recommend this house if you have three or less couples who want to stay in the same bed in their own bedroom. It's not conducive to more couples than that unless you're open to sleeping separately in a bunk bed or on a sleeper sofa.
We are sorry to hear that Anika's visit fell short of the mark for her. We at the Cottages on Suttons Bay strive to make each visit special and memorable. Unfortunately, being in the heart of Sutton's Bay, walking distance to all the Village has to offer, comes with a little street noise. We think we have the best of both worlds because we are in the heart of the Village with some of the best views of the bay and we have private waterfront as well as being next to one of the Village public beach parks. We are also sorry that the temporary guests in the apartment across from the house were bothersome. Had Greg and I known of this we would have come over and asked them to settle down. As the managers of the property, we are always available. We live just at the other end of the village and can be there with a moments notice and we encourage guests to call us if they have any problems or concerns.
This house was perfect for our family. It was clean, spacious and comfortable. We had plenty of room to spread out and have privacy. Walking distance to the grocery store and downtown restaurants. I was a little disappointed in the obstructed view of the water due to large trees along the beach in front of the property, but it was very nice being on the water. We enjoyed the fire pit area and deck. The only real complaint is that there were a lot of fruit flies in the house (kitchen area) that drove us crazy. We would definitely come back to this property again.
We had a wonderful week staying in the home at Suttons Bay. They had recently completed renovations and we were among the first to rent it. We were a combination of 3 extended families and it fit us perfectly. We also enjoyed the views from the deck, beach area, fire pit at night, walking into town and the restaurants and stores in the area. The agents for the property went out of their way to make sure that we were happy and satisfied!
We stayed in the Main Cottage and it was extremely comfortable and suitable for our party of 10 adults and 1 child. The lake/beach were impeccable. We unpacked and hardly moved our cars, there was so much to do onsite. The trail nearby is great for biking, running, walking. We would definitely visit again.
We rented for Memorial weekend and LOVED it. Great view of the water and cottage was very comfortable. Easy walk to groceries, restaurant, shops, ice cream. Easy access to the Traverse Area Recreational Trail for hiking, biking, or running. We did all three. Everything you need in the cottage for a relaxing vacation. Walk in, unpack, and enjoy. We would definitely go back again. Highly recommended!
