Suttons Bay chateau / country house description

This beautifully restored gentlemans farm is surrounded by hundreds of acres of rolling cherry & apple orchards & vineyards, yet only 5 minutess from the beach & Suttons Bay. The best of both worlds, close to everything, yet peace & privacy
The kitchen is a gourmet's delight with Viking range, stainless appliances,marble countertops, wet bar, wine fridge & fully stocked with all the cooking supplies (Cuisinart, china, glassware, etc.)
French doors from the kitchen lead to a patio with a gas grill, patio table and chairs, & a picnic table under the trees next to the gardens.
The house is comfortably furnished, and beautifully decorated. Comfortable beds with high quality linens.

Kids will love exploring the area; sledding, nature walks, biking, x country skiing & snowshoeing out the door.There is a great swimming beach a few minutes away.


We are only a scenic 5 minute drive from Suttons Bay, with the Bay Theater, many boutique shops and a full list of family activities. Great golf nearby. There are approximately 20 vineyards within a 10 mile radius. Completely restored Gentlemans Farm
