We were told the Inn recently had changed hands, now belongs to a winemaker. Not sure how long it has been, but there are definitely some bumps on the road. First, the property is fabulous--could not ask for a more beautiful location. Rolling hill, dotted with Adirondack chairs, seating on patio, strip of sandy beach, wonderful new dock. Restaurant is...

Great view of the lake but a horrible experience. We called to reserve a room. We arrived but the address didn't match the web address. We could not easily locate the check in area then when we did, nobody was there to check us in. We made two calls to the hotel for help. Neither were returned. We ordered a... More

A Hidden Gem. Staff couldn't have been nicer. Rooms are not fancy but comfortable and clean. Accommodated a family of 5 adults easily. Property is fabulous... Beach, lawn chairs, fire pit, nice outdoor bar area. Great place for a small wedding.

We stayed here for 2 nights. On check in, the owner was very rude. Her discontent for her job was apparent our entire stay. The rooms were dirty. Carpet had sand,dirt and dead bugs. Spiders and ants all through the room. We had creamer that expired in 2015 in our room for the coffee pot. The shower had tiles falling... More

The view and location is amazing! The owner is a little abrasive and almost rude! The rest of the staff, especially Kris is nice. Now, the rooms are dirty. Spider webs and spiders in the corners, ants crawling in the bathroom, and the bathtub was filthy (hair from previous tenants in tub)! How awful is that to not even clean... More

If you are going for just a view of water, this is OK. Otherwise, forget it. This is a true story! We planned on visiting, and staying with my sister-in-law in Sutton's Bay. At the very last minute she decided her house wasn't finished enough to stay there as they're doing remodeling. She tried to get us a room at... More

Don't stay here! Owner is crazy. We tried to cancel our half day wine tour and she started yelling at my wife. There isn't a cancellation policy in place, so we will just have American Express deal with that. She said we tried to cancel that day, which is a lie because we tried to cancel the previous morning. Never... More

We have stayed here twice, despite it not exactly being the perfect place solely because of the view, beach and location near other attractions. Also, we tend to make travel plans last minute, and this place always has availability. We also like that there is hardly anyone ever at the restaurant, so it is almost like you have the entire...

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
