Northern Dream Bed & Breakfast ~ It's more than a dream!
Located 1 mile off M22 in Suttons Bay, with the Leelanau / TART Trail just across the road!

After spending many summer and winter vacations in Leelanau and Grand Traverse Counties, Dave and Beth ventured to Suttons Bay in 2015 to start the next chapter of their life's journey. Dave shares, "Living in Michigan for more than 30 years each, we were familiar with the area's beauty and it simply lured us here".

Dave is a former GM Engineer and is currently the B&B handyman, caretaker and bookkeeper. Beth has taught web and design software in higher education and freelances in the industry. She is the hostess, breakfast chef, webmaster, marketing director, and designer at the B&B.

"The first year we lived up here was filled with endless road trips exploring and sampling the tastes of the area.

During that time, we enjoyed sharing our new home with family and friends, showing them our favorite escapes, and making many new friends. We knew exactly what the next step was", says Beth.

We thought long and hard for a B&B name that described what our move to Northern Michigan meant to us...

the name Northern Dream sums it up! 


We are passionate about the beauty of the area in which we live and the home we found here. When we're not enjoying visits from our five children, their spouses, and the grandchildren, we look forward to sharing it with you during your visit.
