                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2010

                          About the owner: My husband, Scott and I live in Greensboro, NC with our three children (8, 6 and 4). Scott is originally from Michigan and I am originally from Georgia. We met in graduate school in Atlanta and the rest is history!

                          Why the Owner Chose Suttons Bay:
                          After vacationing in Leelanau County for a couple summers we were in love with northern Michigan and decided to purchase a cottage to call our own. We cherish the time we get to spend at the cottage and truly feel it is a small piece of paradise! Every trip results in wonderful family memories wether we spend the majority of our time playing on our beach and floating in the bay or venturing around Leelanau County.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          It is hard to beat the panaramic views of the bay from our property and walking steps from your back door to our thick sugar sand private beach!
