About Robyn

This house was built by my grandparents in the 1960's after moving up from the Grosse Pointe Farms area in southeastern MI. My parents acquired it in 2013. Since then we have remodeled the majority of the house, including brand new appliances, floors and much more.

Robyn purchased this house in 2013

Why Robyn chose Northwest

The rooms are spacious and comfortable for groups of families and friends. Outside, one can enjoy a large yard as well as a view of Lake Michigan and the sandy beach across the street. The location is within walking distance of downtown Suttons Bay, the grocery store and many other amenities.

Highest Recommendation

  • 5 of 5

The description and photos are accurate. The house was clean, well furnished, and ideally located. There is a good grocery store and a place to rent bikes, kayaks, and paddle boards on the other side of the highway, about 500 feet away. The beach and park are even closer. It is only a short, safe walk into town, where there are excellent restaurants and interesting shops. Although we took a couple of trips away (to Interlochen, Sleeping Bear Dunes, etc.), we could have easily spent the week actively involved without ever using a car.

Three generations of our family (ages 7 to 75) found the house to be an ideal base for a wonderful vacation. The owners were very friendly and accomodating. In summary, we couldn't think of a single thing that we wish had been different, so it gets our highest recommendation.

Great location - Very nice owners and accomodations

  • 5 of 5

Small beach across the street that's off the beaten trail. We walked to town every day - Big lot with firepit. Plenty of room for 2 couples with 9 kids. Robin and her husband are very nice people and live local if you need any help.

Charming cottage by the beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a week at the Suttons Bay cottage and it was spacious, comfortable and in a beautiful setting on Suttons Bay. We had three young children who really enjoyed swinging and playing in the sand on the adjacent public beach. They also enjoyed the sunny back porch that was stocked with toys! There were many games for adults and children to play after dinner or on rainy afternoons. We enjoyed the local shopping area a few blocks away as well as the Traverse City attractions 15 miles down the road. We had a great time and would highly recommend this vacation home.

Perfect For a Family Get-Together

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Sutton's Bay Beach Road Cottage! Family members came in from three different states for a weekend of wine tasting and general family fun. The weather wasn't overly cooperative, but thanks to a spacious, clean rental house it didn't phase us at all. The kitchen was well supplied and allowed for us to make all our own meals in the house. The sitting area was comfortable with a view of the bay, and a large dining table made game night a breeze :) The bedrooms were all beautifully appointed. I just wish we could have used some of the outdoor spaces! They looked great from the window, haha :) A plus for brewery fans - Hop Lot is just a quick walk across the street!! Thank you Robyn for such a beautiful place to stay!!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time! Loved the town, fantastic food and shopping. The house was very clean and comfortable, exceeded expectations. When the weather didn't cooperate, we enjoyed reading books and putting puzzles together in front of the fireplace. A very relaxing and all over pleasant stay. Thanks, and we'll be back!
