The Lake Leelanau-Sutton’s Bay-Traverse City Route starts and ends right in front of our property on Lake Leelanau Road. Leave our driveway, take the beautifully winding road to Sutton’s Bay. Stop for a breakfast in one of the local cafes, then hop on the paved Leelanau Bike-Walking Trail that snakes through the middle of the Leelanau Peninsula. Circle back up Lake Leelanau Road and land right back at our place just in time to start up the grill and settle in with a campfire.
Karen and Terry’s was a great house for our family of 8 adults to stay. The house was decorated for the holidays and all the little touches were thought off that make a stay special. The beds and bedding were super comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked and we were even left with the ingredients to make smores with their new indoor smores machine. Great communication when reserving, check-in and checking out. We stayed between Christmas and New Years and when an unexpected storm hit the day before we were to leave, Karen texted and offered us an extra night at a reduced rate so that we wouldn’t have to travel through the snow. Very much appreciated! All in all a great stay from start to finish. Would highly recommend!– Tom
