Enjoy our Captain's Quarters apartment overlooking West Grand Traverse Bay. Take a short walk across our very private and quiet park like setting to enjoy your coffee in the waterfront gazebo with views extending 20 miles. Located away from busy roads and traffic so your only morning sounds will be birds and waves. Our Captain's Quarters is a cozy Nautical Museum of antique Great Lakes decor with all the amenities. Close to Suttons Bay, Traverse City, and the wineries of Leelanau Peninsula!

The space

This space is cozy, and private with access to all parts of the property including our flower gardens and vast grounds. If stairs are difficult for you, there are beaches a short drive away, Hendrix beach is on Lee Point Road and Suttons Bay has a beautiful park with beach just 5 minutes drive from our home.

Guest access

Take our stairway down the bluff (very steep!) to our very private beach where you can relax in the clear blue water with sandy and smooth rock bottom. Enjoy collecting the very prized Petoskey Stones (fossilized coral) that seem to pop up after every storm. Catch trophy bass in waist deep water during June and snorkel out 500 feet to the drop off. Make a campfire on the beach or by the gazebo.

The yard is unfenced so please keep that in mind if you plan to bring pets or children.

This part of Michigan is gorgeous and the Captain's Quarters was a great place to stay in the middle of it all. We wished we had more time to enjoy the beautiful property. We can't wait to stay here again. Highly recommend. Kristin and Warren were so welcoming and helpful.

This place was great! If you're looking for peace, quiet, breath taking views and a place to just breath and relax, this is it. Just what we were looking for. A beautiful view, fresh air and water. Kristin and Warren were great hosts! Warren greeted us briefly when we got there and Kristin came down to say goodbye before we left. Communication was perfect throughout the trip! They even left us a good basket, some cheese and wine! We hope to make it back up to Kristin and Warren's!

We needed a quiet place to unplug after a long season of working and this home was perfect. Kristin and Warren were onsite if we needed them but gave us our space, our dog loved the beach and outdoor area. We hope to return and will recommend them to all of our friends!

Perfect location. 20 minutes to Traverse City, 15 minutes max to vineyards, 5 minutes to Suttons Bay and 35-40 minutes to Sleeping Bear Dunes. The property is beautiful and very well maintained. The apartment itself is very charming with up-to-date appliances and the gazebo overlooking the lake can't be beat.

Kristin and Warren's place on Suttons Bay is really terrific and their attention to EVERY detail was outstanding! The place was clean, neat, comfortable and well stocked with anything you may not have come with! Their communications leading up to our trip and flexibility on arrival/departure was wonderful AND we left wanting to come back. I would highly recommend staying at their beautiful AirBNB.

We love the water and spend most of our time near or on the water. Great food, music and friends make our adventures the most fun. We love to ride horses, go boating, hiking, kayaking, and antique shopping. We enjoy meeting people and sharing stories and pictures.
