About Lori Beuerle

I live in Denver, Colorado and own a canine physical therapy business. I left Michigan after I graduated from college because I wanted to live in the mountains. It has been wonderful but do look forward to returning to Suttons Bay Michigan some day.

Lori Beuerle purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Lori Beuerle chose Northwest

Suttons Bay is my childhood home. I purchased this property for my retirement. I am happy to share this property with people because Suttons Bay and Leelanau county is a very special place. It hasn't been touched by big box stores and provides a wonderful setting to get away from it all.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Visited the beach and build sand castles! Wineries, sand dunes, picked blueberries, saw a movie, visited a variety of towns (Glen Arbor, Leland, - Fishtown, Old Mission Penninsula)



Recommendations: Jolly Pumpkin, Fishtown



Great house! Worked perfectly for our family. We've always loved the area and can't wait to return! Thanks!

Beautiful, relaxing cottage

  • 5 of 5

We just returned form a very relaxing week in a beautiful, CLEAN and well equipped cottage. This cottage was comfortable, clean, and in a great location to the town of Sutton's Bay. It is an easy walk to th marina, to the beach, to dinner and town.

We've rented homes/cottages in many vacation towns across the US, and this was by far my favorite!

Enjoy your stay,..

Perfect return visit to our favorite place

  • 5 of 5

After enjoying this lovely cottage in mid-June with family, we were so happy when we discovered it was available for Labor Day weekend for a return visit on our own. Once again, we had a perfect location to enjoy everything in Leelanau County with short distances to the restaurants and shops of Traverse City, Leland's Fishtown, and Glen Arbor and the Dunes. We biked on the TART trail into Traverse City, hiked on favorite trails in the Sleeping Bear National Park, walked into Suttons Bay to enjoy great food and fun shopping, and totally relaxed thanks to the comfort, convenience, and quiet surroundings of this great cottage. We also had corresponded directly with the owner when we had a question initially, and she was incredibly nice, so it meant a lot to support such a great person when making arrangements for our vacation. This was a long-awaited and well deserved getaway for us that we looked forward to for months and because of how well suited this great cottage was for our needs, we are looking forward to at least one return visit next year! Thank you for sharing this great property!

clean, nice place

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and kitchen was well equipped to make meals. Shower was nice, sheets felt great and we slept well. When we first walked in the house we were hit with a very strong smell like something had gotten wet and someone left the furnace fan on to dry the place out. Unfortunately we noticed the smell every time we came back in. The house was very close to town which was very nice. Would stay here again if we decided to go back to Sutton's Bay.

Nice, clean house with beach access!

  • 5 of 5

7 of us for annual family vacation. House was very clean and spacious. Loved that we could bring our dogs. Close to Traverse City to many activities but far enough away to be private and quiet. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Suttons Bay. We were able to gather our adult children and one grandchild together for an amazing week. Lori's vacation home was wonderful. It was very clean and just the right amount of space for us. The beds were very comfortable and kitchen well stocked with dishes, etc. We were in a great location to walk to town and also to be able to explore the rest of the area. . We were also blessed with great weather the entire week and the beach front (across the street) was so very nice that it got used daily!

Thanks Lori!!
