About the Property
Chateau / Country House, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5-6)
The grounds are professionally landscaped and maintained by the Landscape Architect owner.
There is a large open area that includes a wrap-around leather couch and a loft with two beds along with a separate bedroom with a queen-size bed with an exceptional quality pillow-top mattress. There is plenty of room to park any toys (campers, boats, trailers) right on the property. The owners have a 26 foot motorboat and other water toys, so arrangements could be made for their use. If there is a need to stall your horses, or if you want to ride a horse or two, those arrangements can be made as well.
On the property is a large barn, a small barn (both for horses) along with indoor and outdoor riding arenas. Attached to the indoor riding arena is a viewing area with a pool table, wifi, cable, bathroom, laundry and additional sleeping area in another loft if it is needed.
At night, there is a firepit area to warm up on the cold Northern Michigan nights and we are far enough away from any city so that the panaromic star views are incredible.
We are only 1/2 mile away from the Suttons Bay to Traverse City trail and you could ride bikes/horses snowshoe/hike/cross-country ski in any direction from here and see wonderful water vistas and orchard/hill/valley views.
We are 30 minutes away from the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and the Homestead Resort that has skiing with hills that border on Lake Michigan.
As always, if you pay for six days, you get the 7th day free.

guest house started life in the 1920's and as such is not ADA compliant. There are low-rise steps that are necessary to get into the property and one low rise step to a platform that goes into the bathroom with two more steps down to get into the bedroom. Getting into the loft would require climbing a ladder. ...moreless

Voted 'the most beautiful location in America' (Good Morning America) with Sleeping Bear Dunes, 22 Vineyards and wine-tasting rooms along with gourmet/casual dining all in Leelanau County. Bring your horses, bikes or kayaks we have arenas (indoor and outdoor) and trails on site and are one mile from the Leelanau trial that runs from Suttons Bay to Traverse City and beyond. If you would like to sail or powerboat, arrangements can be made. Suttons Bay has excellent shopping, restaurants, festivals and a quaint art-house movie theater that also shows first-run movies.
Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: Jeff and Debbie live on the property with their daughter Samara. Jeff is an attorney and Debbie is a Landscape Architect who designed the beautiful grounds and maintains them as well. They enjoy the life up North with the opportunity to raise, ride and show horses.
Why the Owner Chose Suttons Bay, MI, USA:
Jeff and Debbie have been coming to the Traverse City/Suttons Bay all of their lives for vacations and decided to move to the area in 1999. They love the location of Suttons Bay because it has all the activities of Traverse City, yet the idyllic lifestyle of a Village just a short distance away.
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Our home is just a five minute walk to the beach or a one mile bike ride/hike to Suttons Bay. The TART trail (Rails to Trails Suttons Bay to Traverse City) makes it a 13 mile bike ride to Traverse City. You can bring your own bikes or borrow some of ours to ride into the Village for a nice breakfast/lunch/dinner. Because we are on 21 acres surrounded by much more open area, you will not be constricted to a small area.
