This house is located only a block and a half from the Village Playground and Public Beach. No need to get in the car on a beach day. The business district of Suttons Bay is just a block down the street. You can walk to restaurants, shops, restaurants, Movie Theater, hiking trails and the beautiful Suttons Bay Marina.

About Jim & Ann Muennich

We're Ann and Jim Muennich and we want to share our home with you.

We discovered Leelanau County 25 years ago and have been both summer and winter visitors ever since. After becoming empty nesters, we knew it was time to move permanently from our hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio to this 'Land of Delight'. We purchased this home in Suttons Bay in January 2014. It immediately underwent extensive remodeling and updating. When we're renting our house in Suttons Bay, we are staying nearby in our cottage.

Jim & Ann Muennich purchased this house in 2014

Why Jim & Ann Muennich chose Suttons Bay

We have used VRBO for many years to rent condos and houses for vacations and for visiting our children. We know what guests need in a vacation home. We know the difference between a lightly furnished home equipped for renters and a fully furnished owner lived in home. This is certainly the latter.

This is an owner managed property. We are attentive to the needs of our guests.

What makes this house unique

You will enjoy the convenience of going to the beach, restaurants and village shops without the need of getting in your car.

This is a perfect home for 2 families to share or for multi-generational family vacations. The fully provisioned large kitchen is a great place to cook up the family feasts.

Wonderful place to share great family times!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Sutton's Bay for a family wedding. Bay House is the best place to is comfortable, clean and had the most completely furnished kitchen. You're within walking distance of shopping, restaurants, breweries and the beach.

We enjoyed fires 2 nights and it was so relaxing. Thank you so much Jim & Ann for sharing your home.

Awesome Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a wedding located at one of the nearby wineries! There were 8 adults and we were all very happy with this very clean home. The house was furnished very comfortably and the kitchen had everything you could possibly need. The location is awesome as you can walk to everything in Suttons Bay. It was close to the casino, great shopping, close to many wineries, and close to a great golf course called Bahle Farms which we played! So much to do and we definitely would come back and rent this house again. The owners are so easy to reach and were very helpful when going through the renting process. Thanks so much to Ann and Jim Muennich! We loved your home!

This is the perfect central location to enjoy all of the beauty of Leelanau County. Spend a day touring the dozens of wineries in the county. Swim in Lake Leelanau or Suttons Bay.

Don't forget to visit the Lake Michigan beaches at Good Harbor Bay. The water is turquoise blue. You'll think you're in the Caribbean.

Take the scenic drive through Sleeping Bear National Lake Shore, hike up the dune climb - be sure to take some water. We're sure you going to love Leelanau County just as we have for so many years. You'll never want to leave.
