About the Property
Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
At roughly 1,400 square feet our cottage is large enough for as many as 8 people, but cozy enough for one couple. The cabin is very quaint, with original oak floors, knotty pine walls throughout, and a wonderful sunroom. A floor-to-ceiling wood burning fireplace is a great way to top off the evening and enjoy the cottage's atmosphere. Also be witness to a rich variety of wildlife, including a family of swans, loons, ducks, and even the occasional bald eagle.
Enjoy our outdoor amenities, including three sea kayaks; a rowboat; and a professionally installed mooring anchor for your boat. A swimmer friendly dock, large sandy beach, bay-side fire pit, and horseshoe pit, round off the front yard features. And if you want to see the peninisula, you can use our two mountain bikes.
This charming original log cabin restores the nostalgia of your Up North memories. It is truly your home away from home.

Located in the heart of Michigan's wine country! Leelanau County is home to dozens of wineries - all within minutes of the cottage. Great trails for hiking in the summer, or cross-country skiing/snowshoeing in the winter. It's the perfect location that provides a lot of privacy, but also accessibility to great shopping and eateries in the Village of Suttons Bay.
Why the Owner Chose Suttons Bay, MI, USA:
Our family purchased this cottage over 40 years ago for its privacy and quality beachfront.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This property is truly unique for its amenties, privacy, and size. The cottage is nestled neatly atop a small grassy bluff overlooking an enormous front yard and over 210' of direct Grand Traverse Bay frontage. Enjoy a morning coffee in the sunporch, then walk down to the dock and push off into the Bay for a leisurely kayak ride. Lay out on our very large sand area during the day, where kids have plenty of room to build sand castles and play. Or take a bike ride anywhere in the pennisula with our mountain bikes. You can also relax on a hammock in the cool shade of a wonderful cedar grove. At night, build a big bonfire in the firepit.
