Clean, quiet and comfortable
The cottage is perfect for a weekend getaway or an entire week stay. Duane and his wife were gracious when we arrived and gave us tips on some local spots. We definitely will return when visiting the Suttons Bay area.
Beautiful and peaceful
Stunning views and very quiet peaceful area. Very clean and well kept. This place had everything we needed, can’t wait to come back!
Cute, Clean, Relaxing Trip!
Had a wonderful stay at the lakefront cabin a couple of months ago. Everything we needed was available, we even walked in to a variety of notes & recommendations left by the owners. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was perfect for the meals we cooked there. The location and price cannot be beat. I would recommend this place for any type of trip! I actually ended up saying 'yes' to marrying the man of my dreams on my trip in Traverse, so this cottage will always hold a special place in my heart :)
We are very pleased that you had a great stay.
Congratulations on your future event.
What a great vacation!
We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay at this cottage! It was our first trip to the TC/Leelanau area, and the cottage met all of our needs. We have young children who enjoyed "their" very own private beach each day, while the adults could enjoy the peace and quiet of West Bay. The location is a convenient starting point to all the fun and activities in this area. Perfectly tucked half way between Traverse City and Suttons Bay. When we vacation in the area again, we will want to stay here!
I am a little hesitate to write this review, I would like to be selfish and keep this little gem just available for our use :) It really was perfect, perfect, perfect. The location is great, it was very comfortable. Very clean. Amazing sun rises. Perfect beach. We had a little issue, thanks to mother nature with some bugs, but Duane helped us deal with that. Highly recommend and yes we will be back, hopefully soon Chuck and Judy, Grand Rapids MI
Chuck and Judy,
Thank you for your nice comments. It was very nice meeting both of you. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and are planning on returning. Sorry about the fruit flies during your stay.
Wonderful Vacation in Traverse Bay!!
We just got home from a week at this wonderful cottage! The view is fantastic! There is so much to do and the location is great! We boated, tubed, water skied, biked, sailed, floated, put-putted, and even had s'mores. Duane and Vicki are great hosts. The description is accurate. We would love to come back.
