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!

Just steps from your back door rests the sandy shore of Lake Michigan, where you can enjoy swimming, wading, fishing and boating. When you want to get out on the water, take a sailing trip with Inland Seas Education Association. 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.

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.

Adventurous guests will adore traveling to Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes to try climbing the dunes, or flying a kite in the strong winds!

Hit the blackjack tables when you visit Leelanau Sands Casino offering table games, slot machines, live entertainment, and dining at Dex's Restaurant.

A 30-minute drive will take you to Traverse City, where you can rent a bike and cruise along the TART Trail. With over 60-miles of pathways, you can run, bike, or walk your way through the scenic trails.

Suttons Bay is located in the heart of Michigan wine country, and you'll be able to tour the various wineries in the area including L. Mawby Vineyards, Suttons Bay Ciders, and much more.

    We stayed in the apartment on the same property last year, and are familiar with the area. The staff are wonderful to work with, and the location is great. This cabin is very small but it is very clean and comfortable. There were a couple of minor glitches with the facility but the staff handled them promptly and smoothly without disrupting us. And they recognized the situation graciously and gave us a gift card. Pam and Charles are so very easy to work with— it felt like I was working with friends. I will always try to come back to this property when I travel to this area. The park, the waterfront, the short walk to,town— its perfect for our purposes.

    Had a gap in housing due to selling my house and stayed here for 5 days. Place was well appointed and had everything that I needed. Was hot when I was there without air it can get tough to sleep but it may have been advertised that way too.

    This cabin highly over priced for location literally 40 feet from one of the busiest summer roads in Michigan, M22. Five a.m. to midnight it never stopped!! Could not sit at patio table and hold a conversation. The Michigan 12 axle tractor/trailers back and for hours all day added a whole new dimension to the above.

  • Great area!


    The cabin is walking distance to downtown and steps from the lake. It is the perfect location for day trips up and down the peninsula.

  • Excellent location


    This was an excellent location to a fun town. It was just enough space for the two of us, was good with restaurants and fun shopping and a beautiful view of Lake Michigan
