Retreat to the heart of Leelanau Wine Country!
Unwind with your loved ones in this open & inviting bungalow nestled in a nook of hardwoods. With 4 modern bedrooms, each having access to a full bathroom, this property is perfect for a 4 couple get-a-way or 2 small families.
Approximately 15 min to downtown Traverse City, home to several beaches, kayak & bike rentals, decadent local restaurants, and unique shops.
Over 30 wineries at your “back door” with the closest one, Mawby, only 1 mile away!

The space
The Wine Bungalow has a beautiful European winery feel with modern touches. A total interior remodel was completed May 2021.

The layout is spacious, with natural wood finishes, white granite custom countertops, and splashes of color throughout. Every room has a marvelous view of nature surrounding the home.

Everything in the Wine Bungalow is brand new, including; walls, fresh paint, flooring, bathrooms with tiled showers, a glorious kitchen/great room, wet bar, light fixtures, furniture, decor, linens, appliances, and outdoor deck.

There are 2 cozy sitting areas, one on the main floor and one on the lower level. There is a large gathering space on the main floor with a unique shaped kitchen island, adjacent to the wet bar and steps away from a slider opening to the new deck overlooking a lovely wooded knoll.

All 4 bedrooms have a queen bed and access to a full bathroom; 2 en suite and 2 bedrooms share 1 bathroom. (3 full baths in all)

Our goal is to create a super comfortable, luxurious Northern Michigan "get-a-way". Allowing guests to take a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The Wine Bungalow is a perfect spot to breathe in the pure Up North air, sip on a glass of award winning local wine and let your vacation begin!

The Wine Bungalow has a very desirable location; it’s on the Leelanau Wine Trail, 5 minutes to adorable downtown Suttons Bay, 1 mile from majestic Grand Traverse Bay, easy access to the TART trail, 15 minutes to Traverse City, near Leelanau Sands Casino, Sleeping Bear Dunes, and many golf courses and inland lakes!

(A few more remodel projects are underway, including a new roof, exterior paint and driveway.)

I LOVE to travel and I LOVE using Airbnb! I first tried Airbnb in 2015 as a guest on a 3 week trip to Italy. Instead of staying in traditional hotels, we decided to immerse our selves in the culture and stay right where the locals lived. It was amazing! We stayed in Rome, Florence, Casale Monferrato and Venice. Upon returning to the States, my former husband and I decided to become Airbnb hosts ourselves! We shared our beautiful, one of a kind home in the woods, in Traverse City, MI. We had just finished remodeling it from a Girl Scout Lodge to a family home. We also had an adorable cottage on the property that we listed on Airbnb, and rented them both successfully for 4 years. After we sold that property, I bought another home in the woods where my 4 children and I live and occasionally share our space with other travelers. I enjoy it! I have a second listing in Sutton’s Bay. Both properties are in perfect locations to access the 30-some exquisite wineries on the Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail. The Woodland Goddess Estate & The Wine Bungalow. I am a practicing chiropractor, entrepreneur and active Mother. My parter and I love exploring new places and traveling the world, especially the tropics to scuba dive.
