White Fence Waterfront Suites is a truly unique vacation property. White Fence is a compilation of restored circa 1900 farm buildings just one block south of one of the most quaint villages in the Upper Midwest. The Village of Suttons Bay has deluxe shopping, art galleries and good restaurants abound. White Fence is within walking distance of it all and centrally located for touring all of scenic Leelanau County and its multitude of wineries, fine restaurants, charming villages and the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Seashore Park.
White Fence is a small and quiet property which has been meticulously renovated. The two guest suites are artfully done with privacy, quiet and magnificent views of the bay kept in mind. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with seating areas throughout. The beach front is furnished with cushioned teak seating and wood for the fire pit is always provided. Star gazing from the beach at night is memorable.
You will find specialty food items and beverages in your refrigerator when you arrive. But directly across the street from White Fence is a gourmet grocery store which specializes in local produce and houses an extensive wine selection where the sommelier can describe to you the award-winning local wines. There is an outdoor kitchen at White Fence with a natural gas grill should you decide to cook.
Also directly across the street, is the Leelanau Trail, an extensive biking, walking and running trail. It offers miles of scenic enjoyment.
White Fence was opened for business on July 4th, 2010 and is now taking reservations.

Located in the heart of vineyards and cherry orchards and near the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Seashore.
Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: We stumbled onto Northern Michigan in the mid-1970's and fell in love with the crystal-clear waters of the upper Great Lakes. The Caribbean-like colors range from deep navy blue to teal green and you can see the beautiful sand bottoms at 40 foot depths. We were hooked and vacationed here every year, then moved here full-time in 2002 when we bought White Fence. My architect husband spotted this property over 20 years ago and knew it had untapped potential. I am a photographer and will never run out of beautiful things to photograph in this area. It's a special place.
Why the Owner Chose Suttons Bay: Leelanau County has so many beautiful vistas ranging from rural cherry orchards to vineyards to islands to seashores to cool villages we sometimes wonder why everyone doesn't live here. It is scenic in all four seasons. Springs brings the cherry blossoms, summer the cool clear air and joy of the water, fall a color array the would put Vermont to shame and winter is simply a wonderland. On top of that, the restaurants are spectacular.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: We pay unique attention to the small details that will make your stay special. The linens are exquisite. The tasty treats are unique. And the views can not be beat.
