About Jim & Ann Muennich

We're Ann and Jim Muennich and we want to share our home with you.

We discovered Leelanau County 25 years ago and have been both summer and winter visitors ever since. After becoming empty nesters, we knew it was time to move permanently from our hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio to this 'Land of Delight'. We purchased this home in Suttons Bay in January 2014. It immediately underwent extensive remodeling and updating. When we're renting our house in Suttons Bay, we are staying nearby in our cottage.

Jim & Ann Muennich purchased this house in 2014

Why Jim & Ann Muennich chose Northwest

We have used VRBO for many years to rent condos and houses for vacations and for visiting our children. We know what guests need in a vacation home. We know the difference between a lightly furnished home equipped for renters and a fully furnished owner lived in home. This is certainly the latter.

This is an owner managed property. We are attentive to the needs of our guests.

What makes this house unique

You will enjoy the convenience of going to the beach, restaurants and village shops without the need of getting in your car.

This is a perfect home for 2 families to share or for multi-generational family vacations. The fully provisioned large kitchen is a great place to cook up the family feasts.

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house and location. So easy to walk to beach under 5 minutes or walk into town under 5 minutes. The water was great to swim in at the town beach; never too crowded and crystal clear water! So close to other towns and state parks (20 minute drive to any popular leelenau peninsula town); cherry farms everywhere and friendly people. My family and I LOVED the beds!!! Never have I gone on vacation and had great sleep; it's pretty much a rarity. So thankful for good sleep!

The owners were very responsive to us and made sure we got settled and had everything we needed. Would stay at this rental again and again!

As the title implies - we had an awesome family vacation in this beautiful home! It is so nicely done starting with the big kitchen which had everything you could possibly need for preparing our fun meals together. And there is all kinds of dining and sitting room so you are never on top of one another. Having three bathrooms with showers was divine for the ten of us! The bedrooms were great and having AC up and down was a must to survive this hot , sticky summer! Outside we had many pleasurable moments just sitting by the firepit or on the patio. And the really outstanding point - it was spotlessly clean!

Beautiful Suttons Bay is just steps away for fun shopping, the beach, great restaurants. You can walk anywhere - the candy store, ice-cream - yes! - it meets all the kid requirements! And the drive to Traverse City, the Sand Dunes, Fishtown are practically on your doorstep.

This is a beautiful home in an absolutely perfect location!

Great family home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house as a multigenerational family with 3 kids under 6. It was perfect for us. We loved being able to walk to town and the beach, having SMORES on the firepit, easy drive to TC, Leland, Glen arbor and sleeping bear. The layout was perfect for our family. We ate most dinners at home and the open kitchen and large dining table was great. The kids loved playing in the basement. We also made use of the bikes and took a couple family bike rides. We would definitely stay in your home again

A great vacation home!

  • 4 of 5

This home is truly a vacation home. It is well equipped just like your own home. It is clean and plenty of room for children and adults.

The home has plenty of towels and linens and the bedrooms are nicely furnished. I would recommend this vacation home to anyone and especially for multi-generational families. The fire pit for roasting hot dogs and marshmallows is a great hit with children. This nice walk to the village and restaurants is very convenient. Short walk to water and beach is great for children. I highly recommend this property for a break from the routine.

This is the perfect central location to enjoy all of the beauty of Leelanau County. Spend a day touring the dozens of wineries in the county. Swim in Lake Leelanau or Suttons Bay.

Don't forget to visit the Lake Michigan beaches at Good Harbor Bay. The water is turquoise blue. You'll think you're in the Caribbean.

Take the scenic drive through Sleeping Bear National Lake Shore, hike up the dune climb - be sure to take some water. We're sure you going to love Leelanau County just as we have for so many years. You'll never want to leave.
