Location Details

Centrally located in Suttons Bay, in the gorgeous Leelanau Peninsula, this incredible property offers a shared sandy beach directly on Suttons Bay, for instant access to water activities, while also providing effortless access to town, great eating and other recreation!

Look forward to spending days on the bay fishing, swimming, boating, and waterskiing. You can even rent a paddleboard in the village and take it out onto the water from the shared dock! You'll have access to the onsite dock, but you can rent additional dock space at the village marina. Mooring offshore is available with prior owner permission.

In the summer you can hike in Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore Park, while in the winter there's cross-country skiing at Leelanau Trail. About 30-minutes south in Traverse City, guests can ride along the TART Trail, over 60-miles of pathways for walking, biking, running, and more.

The cottage is situated less than 1-mile from the village of Suttons Bay, and is a short distance to 14 surrounding wineries and vineyards! For more adventure, Leland's historic Fishtown is 10 miles away or you can head out to explore the Manitou Islands. If you're feeling lucky, don't miss Leelanau Sands Casino just 4.5 miles away!

If you grow tired of making food in the cottage, you can take a short walk downtown to dine at any of the tasty local restaurants. After dinner, be sure to stay in the area to browse the town's unique shops.

  • Great locatio, smelly home!


    I loved our location, the walk to Sutton's Bay, and the Hop Lot! I loved that our kids could go right out the door and swim. However the smell of "wet dog" inside the home is very strong, also there were hairs and dirt on surfaces, like light fixtures which makes me think the home hasn't had a deep cleaning in a while!

  • Perfect Location!


    We had a very pleasant stay at this property. The location is superb: right on the water, adjacent to a nice park, and within easy walking distance of the shops and restaurants of Suttons Bay. It feels secluded even though it really isn't. The cottage itself needed a little work. The furniture is worn and could stand an upgrade and the layout of the bedrooms is a little odd; however, it was perfect for us and we enjoyed our stay very much.

  • Great Location in Sutton’s Bay


    Overall, we had an amazing week in Sutton’s Bay. This cottage has the absolute best location if you have kids. It is right next to a public beach/park that also has a playground. Our kids really enjoyed playing there, and we loved being able to sit on the deck in the morning while they ran to the park to play— all still within eye shot! We loved having the dock and fire pit! This cottage also is a very short walk to town and to Hop Lot Brewery. There is also a great grocery store right across the street. We loved being able to walk or bike around. I would also say the kitchen was adequately stocked; there was plenty of fire wood; and we really didn’t need for anything. On the negative side, the cottage is more rustic than I expected. There were quite a few bugs, especially in the bathroom. They weren’t gross or scary, they were just outside bugs. I felt like I was camping? I also think it could use some updates (new carpet!). Again, it was all totally fine, and really didn’t affect our week, but it just was different than what we expected. That said, for the price, you truly cannot beat it. Just know that it’s rustic and absolutely perfectly situated, but it’s not the Four Seasons :)

    Bayview cottage is the perfect location for a young family or a retired couple! View was gorgeous from the front porch with proximity to all Suttons Bay has to offer. We are very happy with our visit and hope to return again and again!

    Support from property manager was also available, friendly and helpful. Thank you!
