                    We live in Chicago and when we get away to smaller towns, we like to find homes to rent (over hotels) to completely escape. Fortunately we were able to find someone who would rent to us without having to commit to a full week as we had a family wedding to attend to over the weekend. This house is exactly as pictured and we had a great stay. It was unseasonably hot the time we were there (mid-90's) so the A/C units had to work extra hard while we were there, but they still kept the place comfortable. The well water did surprise this city girl, but when in Rome... =) Just buy bottled water and you'll be fine! Full kitchen stocked with everything you could ever need. Hope to stay here again - very nice, accommodating owner and I feel it wouldn't be fair if I didn't mention that you must check out the very fun CD collection! =) We'll be back!

                    We could not have asked for a better experience staying at the Carriage House for our family vacation in Traverse City. The house and grounds were just as wonderful as the pictures showed and the property was extremely welcoming and inviting. We felt right at home during our stay and would not have wanted to stay anywhere else. It made our trip that much more enjoyable knowing that we could stay in such a comfortable and well maintained house with no worries. Awesome to have a full kitchen, washer and dryer, air conditioner, and our very own fire pit for our family vacation. It was private, secluded, and truly felt like a home away from home during our stay.

                    The Carriage House was an amazing getaway for myself and some friends this winter. It was the perfect distance from Chicago (approx 4.5 hours) and had everything we were looking for from wineries, breweries, and fantastic restaurants only miles away. The Carriage House was incredibly clean and the description and photos online were spot on! The place was huge, with 3 large bedrooms, with sleeping room for 10. It is located up a private drive, so it was completely secluded with lots of room to roam. We are definitely recommending it to friends looking for a getaway and are already talking about returning next year!

                    We had six adults stay there and had plenty of room. It is a few miles outside of town but that was great for us. There was plenty of snow but the roads and the driveway were plowed for us and the house was just beautiful. Very clean and felt like a home, not an old hotel room like in town. The views from the large picture windows of the snow covered pine trees were gorgeous. We rented the whole house and couldn't be happier with our choice. We will be checking availability on this house for all future trips to Traverse City. Thanks Angie

                    We all really enjoyed our stay at the Carriage House in Traverse City. We rented it for our stay during my sister's wedding, and had it fill to capacity the entire weekend, but we still had plenty of room. I especially liked the privacy the lot gave you and the fire pit in the back got used every night! Everything was clean, updated, and well maintained. We will be back again someday!

                    We enjoyed our stay in Traverse City and especially liked the peaceful landscape.....just the two of us so the house was plenty big enough. Our research and discoveries would lead us to a wide variety of restaurants and interesting stores plus the wonderful Traverse Bay.

                    We stayed recently for our anniversary at this home. Quiet location and not far from town. Thanks for supplying soaps and linens. King bed perfectly comfortable. Pine trees across road makes calming sound when wind is blowing. Had never seen northern Michigan. Love the variety of the area. A lot more to see than the usual east shore beaches. History, fruit orchards of every kind, wineries (try organic Good Neighbor at Leelanlau Peninsula) lake beaches of every variety, lots of biking opportunities, friendly people, consignment shops, lighthouses, water color fantastic, fossil rocks on beaches, general area a lot cleaner than other tourist areas, on & on. Old Tavern restaurant on the Old Mission Peninsula was delicious. ( oldmissiontavern ) Had the artichoke chicken. Grand Traverse Pie Co. has the best strawberry-rhubarb pie. (gtpie) get the regular crust not the crumb. Buy a whole pie. Sleeping Bear Dune. Be sure to drive the scenic loop and stop to view. Don't be afraid to drive on little roads to see old barns, school houses, wildflowers etc. Many places in the small towns in May are not open BUT there are many places to still visit. We spent a couple whole days at the house and there is only one house past this one. Rarely heard anything. Perfect!

                    Our family of 6 (two adults and 4 t'ween girls) stayed at the charming Carriage House during mid winter school break. We found it to be absolutely perfect - in size, accommodations, and location. It is secluded, yet within a few minutes of Traverse city, tubing hills, good restaurants, and the allure of all things up north. Angie was great and we really enjoyed her welcome. My husband and daughters enjoyed walking in the woods surrounding the carriage house. The home appears to be practically brand new and the Hawaii room was perfect for the kids. We couldn't believe we found the perfect place for our winter getaway. Thanks Angie - we WILL be back for another stay at the Carriage House

                    I stayed two nights in November, 2011, with my mom and sister. We had a fantastic weekend, mostly because the accommodations were so adorable, clean and comfortable. It was the perfect place to relax and spend time with loved ones. The views from the windows are gorgeous. We loved the radiant heat floors. Angie was fantastic to work with. I plan to return next summer with my family to this beautiful retreat.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: My husband and I are both licensed builders, while he is also a licensed and practicing engineer here in Traverse City. My current job involves running our cottage resorts in Ludington, MI and Saugatuck, MI along with managing our vacation rentals here in Traverse City.

                  Why the Owner Chose Traverse City:
                  We had our Carriage House designed and built for our personal guests to stay at. The secluded location is only a 10 minute drive to town, 5 minutes to the airport.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Custom built, we paid great attention to the fine details. The in floor boil heat is a nice treat for the cooler months and beyond awesome for the cold winter months! The bamboo flooring throughout provides a soft wood floor, while also making the Carriage House easy to clean and keep the brand new feel and quality. Everything was picked out with guests in mind, from the over sized tub in the bathroom, right down to the fine Emtek door hardware. The newest addition of the 'Carriage Suite' offers more sleeping or more privacy if 3 families / couples would like to stay with plenty of room to roam as well as thier own space!
