    We had a really good week in Sutton’s bay - lovely area. Property was functional but I would not have chosen it if I had visited first. - outside are a was very neglected ( dirty /broken tables and chairs ). - interior was not properly clean - some beds were saggy and uncomfortable. Not expensive though.

    great get away

    Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was clean. I was more than happy with the location. I was somewhat dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Sutton’s bay is always a joy to visit. I would prefer to stay at another property because the exterior yard and furniture is in poor condition which made it less pleasant to hang out by the lake. The property management team did follow up to ask if we wanted to be relocated -I declined because the offer was for a one day shorter stay and I didn’t want the hassle of packing and moving. Also some of the beds were old and very uncomfortable.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We were generally satisfied with this rental, especially with the kitchen which is very well equipped. Interior was clean upon arrival. Some aspects need attention, however: ad needs to be much more specific regarding the number of steps down to the house from the road level; house is definitely not functional for mobility-challenged guests. Outside of house was not well-maintained: steps were littered, deck unswept, outside of windows facing water were fly-specked (making for an unhappy view), garbage cans left on road were never emptied. Inside: first floor bedroom has dripping shower head and too-fragile bifold doors. Second floor right bedroom bureau had broken pulls. Location was convenient to towns and wineries and management helpful in answering a few questions.

Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We enjoyed the view and closeness to the water. There wasn’t any beach area as shown in the pictures, maybe because the water is high. Very creative pictures that don’t show the 20 steep steps down to the house! Came in the dark and no outside lights were working. Very dangerous to carry groceries and luggage into house! Also didn’t show the stairs to bedrooms upstairs. Upstairs shower was terrible, water would only dribble out.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We had a wonderful time here. The location is amazing as the house sits right on the lake. My kids had a great time kayaking and paddle boarding. We also loved the town of Suttons Bay which is within walking distance. The only thing that I should mention is there are quite a few stairs leading down to the house. We were with two elderly people that have trouble with stairs so I wish we had known about this ahead of time. Also the house itself needs a bit of updating. All in all we had a very good experience.

    Lovely waterfront vacation spot!

    This house was great for seven friends to spend a few days of vacation together. The view is unreal, and the property is so close to town — great shops and restaurants nearby. Comfortable beds, nice deck overlooking the water, and very private. We loved it!

When we first arrived the heat was not coming on so we called the management company. They were friendly and got a repair person out quickly.

Perfect location for wine touring on Leelanau as well.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: As we arrived, we noticed the screen hanging by duct tape at the front door, and got a little worried about how well taken care of this place is going to be. The rest of the house was fine,(clean house and linen), the bed on the main floor was very firm, too firm. The beach was more rocky than the picture shows. (pretty much all rocks) into the water as well so bring your swim shoes!!!! This is a rock skippers paradise! I would definitely revisit this place due to it's mostly private lot. (tree lined neighbors, and house sits out toward the water more than the houses next to it. (have your morning coffee at the water in your sleepwear and messy hair if you like.) This review started sounding negative, but only because I gave you the only negatives I experienced. Great place, great view, crystal clear water. 20 min. to Traverse City and 50 to Tubing on the Platte River to Lake Michigan.

The only complaint I have is that the beach area was very uncomfortable. There were lots of weeds, rocks, sticks and broken plastic chairs to sit in. The breach area could easily be cleaned up and replace the chairs with some that work.

    Beach Cottage north of Suttons Bay

    Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was somewhat dirty. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Randy & Eleanor Danielson, my husband & I, were the ones who made the reservation and paid for the week. Renee Danielson our daughter was the contact person for the rental. The cottage was cute and in a good location but we were very disappointed in the lack of cleanliness. The inside could use a good cleaning i.e. the ceiling fans, vents, the secondary door by the laundry room looked like it had not been wiped down since last season. There were dead bugs on floor of the kitchen by toe kick and on counter under window sill. Both couches looked like dogs or cats were sleeping on the cushions. The sweeper has not been cleaned out either. I tried using it to clean the cushions but gave up when I saw the condition of it. Not sure you are aware but outside the wood is off of the eave facing the lake and birds are living in it. There is a plastic bag stuck in the ceiling (inside) approximately where the baby birds are. Pathway lights for stairs need to be replaced and pole light at top of stairs was missing the top and none of the lights worked making it difficult to navigate steps. Hope these comments help for the next renters. Only recommend this cottage if the above items were fixed/cleaned

Pictures should be updated for the beach area and beach area could be cleaned up a little. The cottage is very nice and comfortable. We also were concerned when the screen was hanging on the front door. Again, we would still stay here because of the location, crystal clear water (water shoes do take care of the rocks) and beautiful view!

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We enjoyed staying at this rental but unfortunately we were there during a heat wave in Sept. and there is no A/C. There are ceiling fans in 2 bedrooms, not in the 3rd and box fans for each room, but they were not enough to alleviate the heat. The other problem is there are no blinds in the windows facing the bay so the sun just beat into the living area! We were comfortable at night and did lots of swimming which helped. The rental people were great and the cottage fit our family of 6 adults easily. Also nice is the trail across the street and the easy walk into Suttons Bay.
