About Patty Simpson

This property has always been family owned. It has been our favorite spot for summer vacations, homey Thanksgivings, beautiful snowy Christmases, and snowmobiling. My kids learned how to swim here with the gradually sloping sandy shore. We've spent hours building sand castles and telling stories around the campfire, with the waves lapping nearby. We hope our renters will enjoy the simple pleasures here as we have.

Why Patty Simpson chose Suttons Bay

This property is located on the desirable southern (naturally sugar sand) shore of the Bay. The house has a wonderful open floor plan with 2 walls filled with huge 10 foot windows that look out at the bay. The home has a vaulted ceiling, and a new kitchen. Only $2500 per week (Sat-Sat) Memorial Day through Labor Day.

What makes this house unique

The Beach access is easy with only 4 steps down to the sand, with a gentle slope down to shallow water that is so crystal clear, that you can still see your toes in the sandy bottom from chest deep water. Sunrises and sunsets are breathtaking, as is the setting at night with the stars crystal clear overhead as you sit around a campfire.

Great beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. We were looking for a place close to a winery which was a wedding venue and also a place that would accept our dog. This place did both and we were very happy with it. Very clean and comfortable and has a very nice view of the lake.

Wonderful house in Suttons Bay

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful house with a private beach. It comes with everything you need to make your vacation perfect. And two most important things...comfortable beds with wonderful fluffy comforters and the house is exceptionally clean! Oh, and the view...fantastic. Going back next year.

Great location with access to private beach and only a mile walk into town.

  • 4 of 5

Overall the house was a nice place to stay. The front room with the large windows was awesome for hanging out. Upon arrival we were very disappointed to learn that one of the toilets was broken and wouldn’t be fixed during our stay; there were five of us and I had specifically filtered homes with two bathrooms. No offer of a discount was given and I didn’t ask since I was refunded $100 for the dog I decided not to bring but had put a deposit on. There was some mold on the bottom of the shower door but otherwise the house was very clean and the beds very comfortable. The other issue was that while beach floats and noodles were provided, they were behind the storage bin and covered in leaves, sand and bugs. The cushions for the lounge chairs were very nice and protected in the bins; maybe a shed for beach toys would be helpful. Fire pit was nice on the beach. Also the last day we noticed a black pipe coming from the neighbor’s beach and into the water; we aren’t sure what was coming through the pipe. Otherwise, the House was nice with lots of beds, cooking utensils, washer and dryer, coffee maker, toaster, large fridge and extra freezer, beach towels and a TV, plus a binder with suggestions of places to eat and things to do. We would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We apologize for the broken toilet which could not be fixed while you were there. Unfortunately the week of July 4th is a busy one and our plumber was not available. It is being fixed this week. We are glad that you enjoyed the view and the beach. There is no room on the beach for a shed but we will consider some sort of container for the toys in the future as it is true that Lake Michigan does bring in its share of sand and nature! The pipe in the beach next door that you mentioned doesn't flow into the bay, but is part of our irrigation system. Have a wonderful summer.

we loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved it. Very nice. there is one suggestion it smelled really musty when we arrived. You might want to get a dehumidifier. After the heat was on and things were circulating it was fine.

Thanks again we really enjoyed it. Have told others about this place to.

Thanks,

Dawn

Great weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd time renting & we'll be back again next year! Great location to all the local wineries, slept 7 of us comfortably with room for more, nice & cozy home close to the town & waterfront. I must say, the beds are incredibly comfortable & the shower is hot! This is a perfect place to rent for a group that's reasonably priced & has all the amenities you need.
