Traverse City condo description

Nicely furnished FUN spacious condo (1235 sq. ft). Walk to downtown Traverse City's full array of specialty shops, fine restaurants, galleries, nightspots, and the Traverse City Film Festival. The Blue Heron is located directly across the street from Grand Traverse West Bay and the beach at Sunset Park. The ten mile T.A.R.T. trail starts right out your door.

Watch the air show and fireworks during Cherry Fest from the condominium community. A great city park with multiple grills and play scape is one minute out your front door.

A short drive away you can enjoy wineries on Old Mission and Leelanau Peninsulas, casinos, Interlochen Center for the Arts, numerous golf courses and boating opportunities.

Fall color tours are fantastic as well as the various hiking trails within the area. Hikes overlooking Lake Michigan are truly spectacular and Sleeping Bear Dunes are not to be missed.

The Blue Heron takes up the top two floors of a three story building and has two bedrooms on the top floor, one with side view of West Bay from the balcony. Each bedroom has a queen bed and its own bathroom. A queen sofa sleeper with a half bath is on the main level of this two-story retreat. The Blue Heron also features 2 HI-Def TVs, DVD players and Wi-Fi internet access. A washer and dryer are also provided for your convenience.

Enjoy the outdoor decks, sipping your latest discovery from the local wineries. You will never want to leave the ambiance of the Blue Heron or Traverse City.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2008

              About the owner: My brother and I bought this condo because we have fallen in love with the Traverse City area. We are from Texas and our summers are insufferable. Our favorite memory of TC is watching the Fourth of July fireworks along West Bay in sweat pants and jackets! That is not something you can ever do in Texas. Our condo is decorated in a nautical style reminiscent of our homes in Texas. We have taken great care to outfit our condo in a style that showcases our concern for the discriminating traveler. Please enjoy our home as much as we do. Frederick Carroll and Carolyn Strand

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              We chose this location because it is the best of all worlds. We are a short walk down beautiful tree-lined streets filled with wonderful Victorian houses to some of our favorite downtown restaurants. The shopping is fantastic as well. But then we are across the street from Sunset Beach Park along West Bay where the sunsets are phenomenal. Go in the opposite direction and F&M Park awaits you with grills, a gazebo where there is always entertainment, and beautiful flowers. The TART Trail begins right out our door where you can bicycle along the bay or all throughout town.
