“August 2013”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Nice little town with excellent restaurants and little shops. We stumbled upon Suttons Bay Trading Company and Spice Shop. What a lovely find, they have any spice you could imagine there and they were out of the spice we wanted and she mixed it up right there for us! If you ever get a chance to go there don't pass it up!

“If in the area stop by...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

As another reviewer stated another cute little town. We stayed in the Traverse City area and played golf at the Links of Leelaunau so drove into Suttons Bay to check it out.
It has a nice little beach with beautiful water and a few shops and restaurants.
Has the best Murdick's store since only one in that area and the Charlevoix/Petoskey area that has the dark chocolate cherry almond bark. Absolute delicious!
Also we loved the mango cherry salsa and chips, salads and patio of the 45th Parallel Cafe.

“Suttons Bay, one in a pretty string of such towns in NW Michigan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

We enjoyed the sidewalk sale going on, August 9 and 10, as well as the art fair the previous weekend. It's on the Lake Michigan shoreline and sparkles with charm. Best candy store in the world next to the 45th Parallel Café.
