this is the third time we have stayed there. Everything you need is right there. Kitchen is lacking nothing for your stay. 21 steps up and down to get into house if you have an issue with stairs consider that.

Reviewer Comments:

We loved our time at By-the-Bay! The house had gorgeous views of Lake Michigan out of the kitchen and bedroom windows, a nice little beach area and deck. It accommodated 9 easily, with use of the air mattress. House was clean and updated. Team was very responsive when we called about a shower head that wasn't working well they had it replaced within 3 hours. One small criticism is that the kitchen wasn't particularly well appointed. We made dinner several nights and struggled to find basics like serving bowls, mixing bowls, utensils.The layout upstairs is a little funky with a step coming out of the master that several of us tripped on - may want to add a nightlight to avoid mishaps. Overall, it was wonderful!

Nice house with 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. Overall we had a good stay (7 adults), but there were several disappointments: Queen bed in room with 2 twin beds was extremely hard - no one could stand it; shower in upstairs bath drained Very Slowly - standing in ankle deep water for most of shower; toilet seat in half bath had broken hinges; and steps very steep to/from parking area.

Lovely home with deck on Suttons Bay. Very clean with comfortable beds, well maintained. We appreciated that the owner allowed us to switch from another property with major repair issues midweek with our well behaved dog. Thank you!

Reviewer Comments:

The location was great and the view was amazing. Wish we could have stayed here in the summer, but it was still beautiful in the winter. The only things we were disappointed in is that is snowed the day of or night before and the driveway wasn't clear. It also has a steep staircase down to the house and there was no shovel or salt so we had to get those so we wouldn't fall going in or out of the house. There were also quite a few dead bugs in the house, which since it was the middle of winter made me feel like the house hadn't been thoroughly cleaned before we got there.

Owner's Response: Boy we are sure sorry about the plow. They were contacted but we have do idea when they don't plow if we are not notified. With the huge temperature swings we have had there have been insects hatching -something we typically don't have to deal with in the winter . Be assured it was cleaned.
