Definitely upscale, not the place to bargain hunt, even at the end of the season. Still, very worth a stop.

Although I've not stayed in Suttons Bay, I have traveled through it a number of times, visiting local wineries of the area. There are many unique small shops in this clean, welcoming town. There are some beautiful public viewing areas.

Great little town on the Leelanau Peninsula, near Traverse City. Plenty to do and see---shops, galleries, cafes, bistros. Very friendly. Very walkable. Perfect for a lunch or coffee break during a winery touring day.

Great food, excellent service and cherry pie to die for. Best cherry pie that we have ever had. We were there for lunch and just scored the last available table. The food was fresh and very tasty. Highly recommended.

We had a blast touring the small town. It's a step back in time to appreciate a quiet laid back lifestyle. Charming little shops.
