For $185 a night (with a minimum of a three-night stay) we did not expect to have a room with wet carpet (from recent rain), a rotten sliding door, grimy, outdated decor and an owner who confused us with two other couples who were also complaining about the quality of their rooms! She told us we could go somewhere else... More

There are a lot of mom and pop places to stay around Sutton's Bay, and most are not friendly to folks doing their research into lodging online. The Vineyard did not permit an online reservation, but we were able to learn about the different rooms and check availability. We were pleased when we arrived to find the room could easily... More

The best thing going here is the location, a gently sloping lawn with nice comfortable chairs spaced at intervals takes you down to a beach area with a long dock that has benches at the end. There are kayak rentals in the area that deliver no extra fee to this spot, and the morning kayak experience on the bay was... More

We stayed here for our anniversary just this last wkend. Great little place. Great view of the bay! We had a bonfire on the water too. We also had dinner there and the new chef was fantastic! We were the only ones in the restaurant part for dinner at the time so it was like we had a personal chef!... More

We have stayed here several times. I must say the last time was very disappointing. The location is great and you are right on the water (bay side) so if the weather is warm you can swim, dock your boat and probably bring a kayak. Many in the area enjoying biking riding along M-22 going up the lighthouse etc. The... More

Website said separate bedroom. Nope. Website said flat screen tv, some with DVD. Nope, old style tv/VHS combo. Website said coffee available at 7:30 am. Nobody arrives until 10am. Kitchenette? No stovetop, but maybe kitchenette is a mini fridge, coffee maker and sink. Disorganized. They confirmed our arrival on email, but called us the day of our arrival and asked... More

The main reason our stay was awful was the owner, Pam! This woman is insane..it should have been a sign when I called a week prior to our stay asking for a confirmation (16 of us) & very rudely said "no, I'm driving" Once we arrived she demanded we pay at check in (which seemed odd) but no big deal...

The grounds are beautiful and well groomed, but the accommodations were below average. For the price we paid, I was disappointed to see dirty carpet, paper-thin bath towels that felt like sandpaper, lights burned out, bugs in the bathroom, etc. Could not find the check in desk when we arrived, but when we did, the staff seemed friendly and pleasant.

Just stopped in and there was no vacancy but I just wanted to comment on the grounds and the view. Spectacular. The kind of place you could just relax at and not leave for a week. The restaurant on site is very good. We looked at a couple of loft rooms and they were very nice. This place is a... More
