Beautiful location and home

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time, and the home and location are beautiful. We had a couple minor issues with the home, but Bridget the owner stopped by to check on us, and she got them taken care of immediately. Overall a great experience, and we would go back and/or recommend other people to stay there. It is a short drive away to downtown Sutton's bay (about 10 minutes ), where you can find everything you need.

He home was beautiful and very secluded. The dryer didn't work well and the front door was broken though. It could have been cleaner as well. I had to clean top to bottom when we first got there

Wonderful Family, Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

We initially picked this home because it is so beautiful and priced wonderfully and at a great location. Sutton's Bay is a nice town up north in Michigan so it was the perfect place to rent a home. It was close to both Sutton's Bay and Traverse City making it easy to run into town for groceries and such, but at a nice distance that provided privacy and an oasis feeling. We were greeted exceptionally by the home owners, who brought us a bottle of champagne and fresh Michigan strawberries (twice!). We are so happy to have rented this home! Would recommend 100%.
