Step off the Korner Kottage’s screened-in porch, and you’ll discover a world around you as charming as the one you’ve just left inside.

You’re standing on the sunrise side of the famed Leelanau Peninsula in the quaint village of Suttons Bay. Here, classic cottages and quiet avenues stretch below a shady canopy of century-old trees. Just across the road, the turquoise waters of Lake Michigan’s West Grand Traverse Bay await. Dip in your toes, cast a line or simply spread a blanket and cuddle up on the golden sand. Afterward, amble arm in arm up the sidewalk to one of our ice cream stores. Your destination: downtown Suttons Bay, just a short stroll away.

This vintage village is petite but packed with art galleries, eateries and boutiques galore. Shop at “The Happy Woman Store”, where you will find Inspired Gifts for Remarkable Women. Find fabulous jewelry, gifts and art at The Painted Bird; beautiful glass items, garden art, Benchmade knives, and unique home decor at the Bayside Gallery, and housewares you’ll wonder how you lived without at The Front Porch.

Perhaps you’d like to step back in time yourself? Then take in a show at the one-screen wonderful Bay Theater. You’ll know it by the old fashioned marquee outside; you’ll love it for the just-popped popcorn served in classic red-and-white striped boxes.

Want more? There’s plenty. Just make your home base the Korner Kottage, and you’ll find you’re minutes from discovering it all.
