Traverse City apartment description

The Flat is located above the fun French bistro, Foufou, in the heart of Traverse City, making it a fantastic home base for any of the fun festivals that happen throughout the year. A parking spot is provided in the lot across the street (a coup in the city!).

There are two bedrooms. One bedroom has a king sized bed. The second bedroom has two twin beds. There is a living area with a TV (dvd player), a dining area, which we have set for 4, but the table can extend to seat 12. The kitchen has a four burner electric stove, refrigerator and dishwasher. There is a coffee pot and a pantry stocked with the basics. The bathroom has a shower/bath and a full sized washer and dryer.

The apartment is clean, comfortable and an easy place to be. Dogs are welcome. We call this a loft because the bedroom walls to not reach to the (exposed) ceilings, so you can hear everything.

The apartment is accessed via the alley, in a separate entrance from the restaurant. It is private, well lit and secure. Guests find the space to be bigger than they expected. It is well furnished, yet sparse, which I think creates a sense of calm.

  • Pets Considered:

    We got our first dog in 2012, and have a new appreciation for pet-friendly lodging. We need to know if you plan to bring a pet with you, and we expect you to take care of your pet and leave the apartment in the same state that it was in before! I found it easier than I expected to take our dog out for potty-breaks. This was in the winter and I found areas just outside the entrance that made for quick and easy breaks. There are great neighborhoods nearby for walks and the boardwalk nearby. ...moreless

Important to note about the apartment: it is a loft space and therefore the walls do not extend to the ceiling, making it possible for all sound to travel. There is not much privacy in that respect. There is a queen sized air mattress with bedding in the closet which can accommodate two more people. The second bedroom has two (very comfortable) twin beds. There is an iron and ironing board in the king bedroom, stored in the closet. Extra linens, blankets, and pillows are in the closets....moreless

Car: Not Necessary

Our apartment is located in downtown Traverse City, giving travelers the convenience of easy access to restaurants, movies (The State Theater!), shops, churches, banks, and grocery stores. And, this being Traverse City, the beach is a stone's throw away, easily accessed by foot or bike. Winery tours of Old Mission Peninsula and Leelanau County make for amazing day trips. The Traverse City Film Festival is an incredible event, for which this apartment is ideally situated. The Cherry Fest is a super family event that happens right outside the door.

There are nearby parks with playgrounds for kids. A short drive takes you to casinos, golf courses, and Interlochen Center for the Arts. And water! You can enjoy miles of beaches and with that many water-based activities.

Traverse City is delightful year round. It is a fabulous home base for fall color tours, as well as winter skiing. February is fun with the comedy fest and the beer & music festival. The nearby City Opera House has an amazing performance line-up year round, and you may be able to catch one of the National Writer Series conversations. In short, Traverse City has much to offer, and having a downtown home base puts you in the center of it.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are Brooke & Guillaume Hazael-Massieux. We moved to Leelanau county in 2006 when we bought La Becasse, a French country restaurant in Burdickville. Like many before us, we fell for the region hard and fast! In 2012 we opened Bistro Foufou in Traverse City and at the same time leased the charming apartment above the restaurant.

Why the Owner Chose Traverse City:
The Flat, as we have taken to calling the space, is a fun loft apartment with an urban feel. It provides an excellent home base for Traverse City fun. We stayed here with our kids and puppy for a weekend last winter, and enjoyed being so close to everything. The entry is private, and the apartment is spacious. I can see also using the flat to host a small group if you are in town for a wedding. A parking space is included, which is a huge boon if you are driving. And, of course we are biased, but we think it would be fun to stay so close to a fun French bistro and would take advantage of eating in the restaurant or hanging out at the bar, and some nights simply getting food to go and enjoying the great apartment.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The apartment is easy to access, it's got great natural light, has the basics covered and is a fun way to vacation.
