Property description

PERFECT FOR FAMILIES! DIRECTLY ON THE WATER!

3 bdr, 3 1/2 bath, sleeps 6-8, 137' of frontage on beautiful West Grand Traverse Bay just minutes from Traverse City and Suttons Bay, Michigan. Available June - August for weekly rentals only, will consider monthly rentals and weekend rentals other times.

Beds - King in master bedroom on main floor, 1 queen in upstairs bedroom and two twin over full bunk beds in other upstairs bedroom.

Perfect for family vacations with sandy-bottom, shallow beach with very gradual grade (no drop-offs). Spectacular water views with both sunrise and sunsets and the lights of Traverse City! Fires on the beach and dinners on the deck. 15 minutes from shopping and restaurants in downtown Traverse City and only 5 minutes from charming downtown Suttons Bay. A mile from the TART trail, a paved bike path that connects Traverse City and Suttons Bay. A great starting point for all the vineyards, orchards, towns and sights of Leelanau County including the towns of Northport, Leland, Glen Arbor and Empire as well as Sleeping Bear Dunes, of course.

Enjoy a glass of wine at sunset on the upper deck or a cup of coffee on the large covered porch overlooking the bay. Truly paradise in Northern Michigan!

CLEAN and NEW HOME! Cherry cabinets throughout, master bath jacuzzi and tile shower, gas fireplace, maple flooring, outdoor shower and covered front and back decks with Trex Decking. Asphalt drive. Sandy-bottomed beach - shallow and gradual, very safe for kids.

The carpeted master bedroom is on the first floor with a private deck. The private master bath includes jacuzzi tub and custom tile shower. There is also a laundry room with washer and dryer as well as a half-bath on the first floor.

The living room overlooks the bay with gas stone fireplace and maple hardwood floors to bring the beauty of Northern Michigan inside.

The kitchen is spacious with stove, oven, microwave, disposal, dishwasher and numerous appliances (soup-maker, rice-cooker, panini-maker, pancake griddle, toaster and toaster oven, crock pot, blender and more). There is a bar area for a quick breakfast or settle into the farm table in the dining room surrounded by windows overlooking the water.

A beautiful staircase takes you upstairs to two large bedrooms each with private bath and walk-in closet, along with a sitting area. Each bedroom has a private entrance to the balcony which has a tempered-glass railing to provide an unobstructed view of West Bay.

There is a mudroom coming in from the garage for coats, shoes, beach towels and toys with sitting area and cabinetry.

The home has a foosball table and air hockey table as well as drawers full of Legos and Thomas the Train tracks for the kids. Cabinets hide board games and puzzles for all to enjoy. There are two brand-new Schwinn cruisers as well as three kayaks for your use. This home has it all!

Lots of outdoor space with covered and uncovered portions of deck with ceiling fan, adirondacks, table/chairs, grill and outdoor Bose speakers. Outdoor shower. More adirondacks at waters edge. A 300 foot dock with a large sitting area at the end juts into the cove from the property. Water remains shallow that far out!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We have been vacationing in Michigan for years, but after our first visit to the Leelanau Peninsula, we knew we had found the place where we wanted to buy our vacation home. Our kids (8 and younger) may be the only people who love the area and our home more than we do.
