Suttons Bay house description

Charming 3 bedroom/2 bath home on Suttons Bay with deck and private sandy beach with 232 feet of frontage. Very secluded, sleeps 8. Completely furnished, including grill, patio furniture, washer and dryer, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, dishwasher, towels and linens. A dock, canoe, kayak, and an offshore swim raft are available for your enjoyment. Also has Wi-Fi internet access at no extra charge. No smoking or pets please.

The three bedrooms are all of good size; two have queen beds, and the third bedroom has two XL twin beds in it. All new bedding sets for 2012, new queen beds for 2013. Two full bath rooms with towels are included for your convenience, as well as a full size washer and dryer. All major appliances are new for 2013. An open kitchen and dining/living room area with large windows overlooking the sparkles on the water will leave you breathless!

A great waterfront home in a great location!

Take a short stroll north along the beach to the Raftshol Vineyard's Wine Tasting Room, mention Chris sent you, and the first bottle is on me! While you are there, sample their many flavorful award winning vintages.

Need to stay plugged-in while on vacation? Use our free Wi-Fi internet access.

Have a boat? Tie up to our secure mooring, and use our dock and canoe for access. Of course, the canoe is also available for guests without a boat! We also provide a kayak and an offshore swim raft.

Very secluded and private location - the north side of the property is adjacent to wooded undeveloped farm property. The house is about 150 heavily wooded yards east of M-22 - creating a pleasant and welcome buffer from the road (which is not visible from the house). The property is on the water and has direct access to the waterfront - no roads or other barriers to cross. The beach is 17 stair steps below the house/deck. As you stroll the beach, watch for the bald eagle nests in the treetops along the shoreline.

Beach conditions: The beach features a newly installed 65' x 20' sand area that provides plenty of room to relax and enjoy the waterfront. In other areas along the 232 feet of frontage, the sandiness/rockiness of the beach varies from year to year, depending on the water level, winter ice and storms, etc. It is typically a mixture of smooth pebbles and sand. The beach also has a nice fire pit with a large sitting log for your summer bonfire parties!

Located next to a vineyard, and just 2.5 miles north of Suttons Bay, this charming home has so much to offer and couldn't have a better location or view. Aside from the 28 vineyards in Leelanau County, this home is only a few miles from the Leelanau Sands Casino, and close to local farm markets, shopping, dining, art galleries and all of the many other attractions of the picturesque Leelanau peninsula.

The area hosts many activities; including the Cherry Festival and other local festivals, arts and crafts shows, concerts in the park, casinos, wineries, the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes (a must), performances at the Interlochen Arts Academy and the Opera House; you're certain to stay as busy or as relaxed as you want to be.

Enjoy charter fishinig boats, catamaran sunset cruises, parasailing (for those who are brave), jet-ski rentals, hot-air balloon rides, our local markets, cherry picking (and other fruits depending upon the season), and hiking trails.

Looking to golf? Perfect area for that! Fantastic golf courses surround Traverse City. Want to go fishing? Look no further. Shopping? How about a large mall, an outlet mall, and amazing local shops to find that special treasure. The dining is also fabulous, and we have amazing local chefs that will prepare scrumptious meals that you`ll want to tell your friends and family about, not to mention the many restaurants with gorgeous waterfront views.

Cancellation Policy: If Renter wishes to cancel his/her reservation, reservation deposits, rents and taxes are non-refundable unless the vacancy can be filled at the same rate. Partial refunds will be made if the vacancy can be filled at a lower rate, to the extent that the total rent collected exceeds the original rate. In addition, all cancellations are subject to a $100 rebooking fee. If you must cancel your reservation, we will do our best to rebook.

          Why the Owner Chose Suttons Bay:
