Traverse City house description
As you pull into the driveway and two-car garage from sleepy South Shore Drive, you are greeted by a pretty landscaped patio that may come in handy for lunch with your visitors or just to get relief from the sun.
The slate entry foyer leads you into the vaulted ceiling of the great room that architect Glen Arai has made the focus of this subtle beach house. Its redwood walls, brick fireplace, new carpet, and panoramic windows take full advantage of the sweeping views of Suttons Bay New carpet in living room and new hard service kitchen counter tops with beautiful new irridecent sea spray glass back splash walls in kitchen.
The beach is the best in the area..sugar and and beautiful clear water fantastic for swimming and just enfoying the shoreline and the boats that come in and out of the bay. Walking distance to the Village of Suttons Bay even along the beach if you prefer. Fabulous fall color, winery tours pure Michigan at its best.
The fireplace and AV/TV center separate the great room from the full kitchen that has been outfitted with the best appliances and accessories you might need for dining in high style in the adjacent bayview dining area. All new hard service counter tops and glass tile backsplash new in 2011.
A step through the sliding doors opens out to the deck complete with Brown Jordan patio furniture. Five steps down and you are on the most beautiful sugar-sand beach to be found. The beach tapers into the water and is ideal for children or even a midnight swim.
The master bedroom opens onto a more private section of the deck and also has a magnificent view of the Bay.

Best place to stay in area!
Best place to stay in area!
We stayed at this house for 7 days. The place is absolutely beautiful and in my opinion, has the best location on the bay, which is at the point of the bay. So when you are sitting on the deck you are looking directly at the whole bay empty into Grand Traverse Bay. Perfect beach at the house as well. Fire pit was great for the nights and roasting smores! The house itself is beautiful and quite spacious. We had 4 adults and 2 children and there was ample space for us. I really can't say enough about this house!

Owner response: Thanks so much for the review...we do feel it is a special slice of heaven on earth and very relaxing. Hope to see you next year.
I was reluctant to post a review because I did not want it harder to rent for next year. But in the end - felt I needed to do what is right. I have been "burned" in the past renting off the internet. Photos do not always reflect properties. In this case - I will say that the photos do not do it justice. Amazing location, clean, great value. I am heading back next year!

My wife and I just returned from a one week stay at this property. It was one of the best vacations we have ever had in the last 45 years. This property was perfect for us. The beach is great -- that is my wife's favorite feature that this property offers. I enjoyed the view even on the one rainy day that we had. There's a great view of Suttons Bay while having breakfast, from the living room, the bedroom and, of course, the deck. We also enjoyed walking the short distance into the village of Suttons Bay -- some great shops and memorable restaurants. We plan on returning as soon as we can!

Owner response: We want to Thank our first reviewer. We have never asked for a review...after being informed by vrbo that we should we simply asked and a wonderful response came on to the site. We have always heard over the years from our vacationers house much they love the setting and our beach home ...just did not think it was important to have it on the site. Our mids have been changed and will welcome other guests to review our very special spot in what we think is the heart of PURE MICHIGAN. at its best. The other response we hear quite often is how clean and well kept up it is. Every year we put something new or do a major redue on an area of the home. This fall 2011 we plan to put in a beatiful stone retaining wall and new deck. Come for a visit you will love our little slice of heaven.
