We have stayed in the Guest House for many years and keep returning. Tom and Marilyn are fantastic hosts and the location is perfect. If you are traveling in the area it is central to all of the scenic attractions. You can do and see it all including many secret places to search. Don't miss this opportunity to relax and... More

We chose the Guest House based on these TripAdvisor reviews. That being said, we did not agree with them. Tom and Marilyn are VERY sweet people. It's just htat the style of the rooms & house are not a typical B & B. Just ask to see the place first and then decide. You might agree with the others that... More

We just returned from a midweek summer vacation in the Leelanau peninsula. We were "free styling" our accommodations and decided to head to wine country without any hotel reservations. We were lucky to find a room at The Guest House. The house is on M-22 right by all of the shops and restaurants. It is just a short walk to... More

My husband and I just returned from a long week end at Suttons Bay; we stayed at this wonderful B&B and will return! We found Marilyn and Tom very helpful and insightful re the area and all of its attractions. The room was nicely appointed and we appreciated not dealing with "over the top lace and nick knacks". It was... More

Just returned from a "girl trip" in Michigan's wine country. It is not always easy to find a B & B that offers one bedroom to accommodate three people, but the Queen and Twin were perfect for us. The beds were comfy, but there was some noise from the street. Everything was perfectly clean and this B & B was... More

We stayed with Tom & Marilyn September 2012, and are going back soon. I just realized I hadn't reviewed them & we are already booked to return! The location is great, right on the main street in Sutton's Bay. You can walk to local shops & restaurants. Our room was very nice, good-sized & clean bathroom. They don't fix hot... More

This place was perfect for four college roommates to hold a reunion almost 40 years after we graduated. We had the whole upstairs of the house. Marilyn was lovely and very helpful. Three bedrooms with AC and ensuite bathrooms. Nice sitting area and kitchen and great deck for sitting out in the evenings with a glass of wine. Great location... More

Tom and Marilyn are so sweet and provide a great place to stay! Very close to downtown Sutton's Bay and 15 minutes from the historic fish town of Leeland. We loved our stay and found it quite peaceful. The beach was very low key and relaxing, within walking distance. The lake is breathtaking and perfect for a cool down. VI... More

We stayed in the cottage with friends. Since it is a two bedroom, two bath cottage, we had plenty of room for the four of us, our baby, and two small dogs. The location is great because you can walk to the downtown shops and restaurants and the beach is right across the street. As for the interior of the... More
