Our Bayview cottage is just one of our vacation cottages situated on the Caribbean like blue waters of Suttons Bay. Suttons Bay Village is the gateway to Leelanau County and lies midway up the eastern shore of Leelanau Peninsula and is just a short drive from Traverse City. We are surrounded by rolling vineyards and orchards, so you will find yourself in the heart of Michigan wine and cherry country. Northern Michigan has something to do all year round. Pick your adventure – golf beautiful links, shop art galleries, hunt wild game, sail the calm waters of Grand Traverse bay, play on the sugar sand beaches, climb the dunes, enjoy our winter sports, savor the local fare and taste award-winning wines. Take your time – catch your breath – relax with us.

Our cottages are in walking distance to Suttons Bay Village, with all the amenities of modern living including A/C, cable, flat screen TV and WiFi internet. We offer luxury to affordable accommodations.

Year Purchased: 2013

About: Dear Visitors & Guests- Thank you for choosing the Cottages On Suttons Bay for your Up-North get away. In early 2013, the Houston family acquired this property from the former Suttons Bay Cottages owners. The Houston family saw it as a very special property on Suttons Bay which can and will become even better. We have all put a lot of work & upgrades into the main cottage and started in on the cabins. We will be working hard through out the summer and the rest of the year to effect even more improvements. Summer 2014 should be a banner year for us so we hope you will consider coming back to visit us again next year when you will be able to see our progress. We would love to hear your feedback and if there is anything we can do to make your stay more comfortable please let us know. Warmest Regards - The Houston Family, The Proprietors Carole & Greg Higgins Cygnus Real Estate The Property Managers
