The wall to wall windows overlooking the West Grand Traverse Bay and the open layout of this home had us sold immediately!
Private wooded lots surround this vacation home for an away from it all feel! Relax on the deck swing, in the hot tub, sauna or on the beach......
This property is exquisite! The house was emaculate and very user friendly. Instructions on how to use the hot tub, sauna and appliances were very clear and easy to follow. We were a party of 12 and slept very comfortably. In fact, I think 14 would still be comfortable sleeping here! There was enough space to accommodate everyone. The new queen bed in the master bedroom was sooo comfortable! We forgot a few things including water shoes, toothbrushes, a sewing kit and laundry detergent....but she provided all of that and a bottle of wine and chocolates! We were impressed at how accurately she described the home and sleeping accommodations on vrbo. It took all the anxiety out of vacationing. The pictures on the website also provide you with a virtual tour of the home. Her attention to detail and communication skills were top notch. Prior to confirming our reservation, she contacted us to review all the details of the sleeping arrangements and rental policies. All rules and directions were clearly written, discussed and agreed upon. Upon arrival, the home not only met but exceeded our expectations! Sitting on the deck eating lunch fresh off the gas grill was wonderful! Had to say we LOVED the outdoor hot shower! We had a great time and would recommend this home to anyone looking for a great escape . Can't wait to reserve our vacation here next summer!
The home impresses from the second you pull into the driveway. The hosts are fantastic and the kitchen is well equipped. Love the full wall of windows looking out onto the bay!
We had a wonderful experience staying at this lovely home for our "Friends Wine Tasting Weekend." We have decided to make it an annual event and hope to stay here again!
We loved our week at this house. It was a beautiful spacious home with a fantastic view of the lake. There was plenty of room for our family of 9. The kitchen was well stocked with useful items for us to prepare meals. We loved the table on the deck, the swing on the back porch, the hot tub was a big hit, as were all the water activities we were involved with.
The owners were wonderful to work with and communicated thoroughly with us.
Had a great time staying at this house. It was clean and comfortable. Great view of the water too. Would recommend it to others
2 families recently converged on this beautiful property for a much needed respite from our busy lives and this was the perfect place to unwind. The house was spacious and easily accommodated 8 people. It was clean, well equipped and everything worked! We didn't need to bring much because the owners already provided a lot (bikes, kayaks, floats, etc). They also gave detailed housekeeping rules which were helpful. We had our own private beach and dock and we swam, kayaked and sunbathed without worrying about crowds. We had privacy and yet the property was a few minutes drive from the cute Suttons Bay downtown area and about 15 minutes from Traverse City. There's a good variety of restaurants, shops, wineries and activities nearby. We had great fun climbing the Sleeping Bear dunes! In the end, this is a place where you can choose to do a little or a lot or somewhere in between. We had an incredible time here. We've stayed in a number of rental properties over the years, both domestic and international, and this was undoubtedly one of the best! We can't wait to come back!
Close to both downtown Suttons Bay (about 3 miles) and Traverse City (about 12 miles). Easy access to Traverse City and M22, but away from the crowds and noise. All water sports welcome on this Bay! It has a great hard sand bottom, crystal clear and clean water, wonderful for kayaking, boating, swimming and tubing. Only a few miles to the DNR boat ramp. West Bay is part of Lake Michigan and has cleaner water, bigger waves and sandier beaches. Petoskey Stones have waited millions of years for you to come find them. Close to two golf courses, 12 vineyards (which offer free wine tasting) and the Leelanau Sands Casino!
