Moonridge on West Bay Suttons Bay

Guest Rating:

Vacation rental cabin / bungalow. Sleeps 8, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms. Dogs allowed.

Suttons Bay, MI 49682 United States

Catch the stunning sunrise views early in the morning on the east shore of West Grand Traverse Bay. Just outside the village of Suttons Bay! On a quiet side street, this 3 bedroom and 2 bathroom home faces East. Sits on a low bluff above the water with great views. 2 level house. Sleeps up to 8.

This location is so peaceful, you will not want to leave! Relax on the porch and enjoy the birds and the rustle of the trees. Hear the clang of the big red buoy at the drop off point. Watch boats cruise by, and gulls circle and dive for food on the water. You may see a bald eagle fly past the bluff, or a parade of early morning turkeys prance across the yard. Build a fire and sit around the fire pit. These are all part of the Moonridge experience.

Great area for touring on your bike. Home is the last house on a quiet country road nestled around orchards.

5 minutes to the village of Suttons Bay which has a great sandy beach. 20 minutes to Traverse City. 20 minutes to Northport. Enjoy local festivals thru the entire summer and fall.

    This is our first time using Visit Up North Vacation Rentals. We appreciated their timely and thorough communication with us about our rental. We would use them again. The property was fairly well maintained and the location offered a pretty view of Grand Traverse Bay. We thought Sutton's Bay was beautiful. We also enjoyed visiting the other small towns on the peninsula.

    We had our family up there for the weekend and we had a great time. Great open kitchen and family room which made it easy to hang out and play games. We also loved the views over the bay especially the morning watching the sun come up over Old Mission Point. Also very close to Suttons Bay and Leelanau Sands Casino.

    The Moonridge rental home was a great place for 6 friends to spend a two-night getaway. The space was well laid out, the beds were comfortable and the kitchen, living room and dining room had a great flow. The only issue we had (and a VERY small issue at that) was the coffee-maker had a note on it to use only bottled or filtered water. We didn't know about this ahead of time and needed to make a trip into Suttons Bay to buy some jugs of water. Otherwise, we couldn't have chosen a better rental property to enjoy our time together.

    • Manager Responded on 1/29/2018

      We are happy you enjoyed your stay. We imagine the owner left that note for the coffee pot as the water is hard and that can slow or stop the coffee pot from working. The water is safe to drink and you can use the sink water.

    Thomas S from Cheboygan, Michigan recommends this vacation rental

    We enjoyed our weekend at Moonridge. The home was comfortable and well equipped. We toured the area and fall colors were peak. One suggestion would be a good deep cleaning of the home and a water filtration/softener system. Upon arrival the water smelled bad of minerals but after running it as instructed, it became a lot better. This was our 2nd stay at Moonridge and we would return.

    • Manager Responded on 11/16/2017

      Thank you for coming back to Moonridge. The off season deep clean should be done. The home is on a well and at time can be a bit sulfury. Running the water always helps this.

    Melissa S from Caledonia, Michigan recommends this vacation rental

    Moonridge Cottage served as a great home base for our adult wine weekend. The home was clean and location was great. We enjoyed a bonfire and some Persied meteor shower watching with the bay as our backdrop. Our only issues were that many of the dishes were out back in cupboard dirty, which left us with few to use (and due to the hard water we couldn't get them clean). Also, could use some kitchen dish towels. Other than that, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    • Manager Responded on 1/8/2018

      The hard water does make it tougher to get spots off dishes but they should still be clean. As you know we ask guests to wash their dishes and we do have the housekeepers to spot check I am sorry if they were not right but hope you will still come and see us again/

    This home was perfect for our stay in Suttons Bay! the upper level suite with two beds was perfect for a family while the rest of us were perfectly comfortable on the main floor. The home was clean quiet and peaceful. Our kids had so much fun looking through all the rocks on the waterfront. I think they preferred it over a sandy beach. Beautiful views!! We enjoyed the bonfire pit every night. Plenty of chairs to use on site and a picnic table. Visit Up North called to check in to make sure we were having a good time and everything was up to par. Very professional. Overall great place and we would like to come back again!

    Had a family event in early winter and needed a place for 2 couples and our dogs. Was pleased to find this affordable property, located in a beautiful area. The downstairs rooms are small, but adequate. Upstairs loft offers additional beds, if needed. Inside property is tasteful and clean; outside needed some attention (leaves everywhere and railing to water in serious need of help), but for the price and the view, it was VERY easy to overlook. Beautiful morning sunset, and plenty of space. We plan to return. Not easy to find pet-friendly, affordable, with that kind of view -- hoping the owners keep the price and pet options as they are.

    The vacation rental was exacting how it was advertised. The view of the water was absotuley serene. The kitchen was well stocked with quality cookware and utensils, which was better than most rentals. I saw previous reviews about the place being "buggy", which it was, but your next to the woods! What do people expect?! My family and I would definitely consider renting this cottage again. It's always nice when a well-kept rental allows four-legged friends.

    The home is located in a quiet location, and easily accessible from M 22. In general, the home is nicy outfitted and we had a very nice stay. There is a steep access to the lake, so you must be in good physical condition to get down to the water. Two areas that need improvement are the screen doors and the removal of spider webs. There were a lot of spiders in the home.

    • Manager Responded on 9/14/2015

      Thank you for your review and we will attend to these items. Regarding the spiders, where there are bugs there are spiders. Being surrounded by trees and water this will always be a battle. We do our best to know the webs down ect. We will keep trying!

    This house was perfect for our two families. We had one family with a newborn and the other with three teenagers. One room each for the adults and baby and loft bedroom for the kids. The only bummer for the teenagers was that they could not swim in the water as its really not a beach just rocky area. But the fog on the lake at sunrise was so peaceful. This house was perfectly located to visit fantastic wineries such as Ciccone and Black Star. Downtown Suttons Bay is cute and only a few quick miles north. The cherry trees were also blooming at the end of May - just gorgeous. Would recommend.

    • Manager Responded on 6/7/2014

      Thank you for the review! Yes, this is definitely more of a view property (not swimming) but hopefully they were able to take advantage of one of the beaches in Suttons Bay. We are glad you enjoyed your stay.

    Debby H from Grove City, OH recommends this vacation rental

    We had a great time being in such a quiet location with a wintery view of the bay. This is the first property that had a well stocked kitchen from lots of utensils, pots/pans, spices, coffee, sugar, etc. We used the fireplace everyday and loved the fact there was already wood for us to use. The location was just far enough from Traverse City and Suttons Bay but we could get to both quickly. The only downfall of this home were the hard mattresses. With both of us with bad backs & several surgeries we didn't sleep good the whole week. Next time we would bring our air mattress. We love, love being up north and loved all of the snow.

      We are happy you had a nice visit. We agree at times the water can smell like sulfer as it is well water. We will talk with our owner about addressing this issue. Thank you for staying with us! Please come again.

    Jean H from Lansing, MI recommends this vacation rental

    We enjoyed our stay at Moonridge; however, we arrived to find the sloping driveway very icy. The people at UpNorth were very nice when we called, but couldn't get over to put salt down for a few hours. Being winter, it snowed while we were there, but the driveway wasn't tended to. Not a huge deal, but it made for tricky driving and walking. The bluff behind the house was also very steep...would not recommend letting children or a dog play in the back. The drop-off is hidden until you get closer to it - almost appears from the house that the yard goes right to the water. Especially in the snow! Overall, we loved the house and would stay was very clean, warm and cozy, and the view of the Bay was fantastic. Having some road salt available would have made it so much better...along with having the driveway cleared before our arrival.

    • Manager Responded on 1/2/2013

      Winter is always tricky up north. We did respond to the ice on the drive within an hour of a call from the guest and brought driveway salt. The drive is a little steep and in the winter all wheel drive can be helpful. There is also room at the top of the drive to park for lighter or smaller vehicles. The drive had beeen plowed within 24 hours of arrival. There had been light snow through the day. Got to love winter!

      We have noted your suggestions. Sorry about the fruit flies. They visit us here in Leelanau County every summer. Darn those fruit trees!

    Moonridge was very clean and well kept. The view was beautiful and it was wonderful to sit out on the back porch and enjoy it.
    I was impressed at how many items were available in the kitchen to make the stay more comfortable for preparing meals and snacks.
    It would have been more comfortable if there was air conditioning available in the home, or if there had at least been more fans available. One for each room would have been made sleeping much more comfortable with the summer heat.
    Overall a very nice experience

It is such a peaceful place overlooking the water and the set-up it great to share with another couple.

    Negatives: Water quality was stinky; we had to buy drinking water. The closet door on downstairs West bedroom was unattached on top when we arrived and broke during our stay. On first arrival the driveway was impassible by a two wheel drive car. More wood for the fireplace would have been nice. We had to kick all the ice and snow out of the way in order to enter the house when we first arrived. Upstairs bedroom was cold.
    Positives: The view was gorgeous. Cozy and comfortable house. The neighborhood was quiet. Neighbor was friendly. Enjoyed being close to Suttons Bay. Kitchen was well stocked with good cookware. Furniture was nice. We liked the fireplace and used it a lot. The area is very pretty.

    Beautiful views, great location, very comfortable and welcoming place.

    Only "negative" comments: because of the water, the silverware and dishes had a coating or something on them - and the blinds on the windows facing the driveway were all bent, which gave a bad impression before I opened the door.

    I found the staff extremely helpful and very nice; the place was very clean and nicely laid out. It was well stocked with linens, cleaning supplies, hangers, etc - everything I'd need.
    I would happily book again.

    We enjoyed the location of the house, which was on a dead end road without much traffic. Getting to Traverse City was pretty quick and we also went to the Sand Dunes fairly easily. Minor downsides with our stay: couldn't get the wireless internet to work but not a big deal given we went to see nature and the water had a metallic smell to it. However the location more than made up for them.

    Our stay at Moon Ridge was great! We were lucky to have a night where the moon was bright and shining on the bay, it was beautiful! The mornings were amazing as well watching the sunrise on the deck with a cup of coffee! The six of us had a great stay, it was a perfect place for us to reconnect. The cabin layout was great, comfortable, well maintained and easy to hang out in. The location was close to vineyards, Sutton's Bay and Lelanau. We'd stay again and recommend it highly to our friends.
