                  Car: Not Necessary

                  Traverse City area is becoming one of the hottest vacation destinations in the world. VITALIA offers a premium experience with restaurants, shopping, beaches nearby, with a quiet place to retreat. Park your car and relax with a great garden view.

                  We are one of the few self-catering, private accommodations downtown. The BOX, and the apartment over garage called Vitalia, are part of an historic landmark property and we've used our own extensive travel experiences to make this a relaxing escape with luxury fittings.

                  We run a business and live in the building across the courtyard, but respect our guest's privacy.

                  We are the edge of the historic Boardman Neighborhood. Front Street shopping, beaches and excellent restaurants, yoga studio, coffee shops, running and biking trails, movie theatre and Open Space where many festivals are hosted just minutes walk away. We also have a great natural food store to stock your pantry nearby.

                  Bus stops are just a block away if you have to venture further, but with this location, location, location, walking is the ticket once you park your car.

                  The Boardman River, which runs into Grand Traverse Bay, is accessible across the street if you would like to bring your water accessories: kayaks, canoes, SUPs, fishing rods.

                  The property is located on the corner of Eighth St. and Boardman Avenue, just five minutes walk from the heart of downtown and overlooking the Boardman River. Guests are invited to relax in a formal garden at The BOX, or stay inside during a rainy afternoon napping, reading or watching a movie. There is a full kitchen to exercise the foodie in you, with access to nearby natural foods market nearby and farmers market May-October.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: We are just completing a three year odyssey which involved remodeling a landmark building, The Cigar Box Factory in Traverse City. Built in 1920, cigar boxes were made and packed here until the early 1940s using the local cedar trees. Since then, it has been a telephone company, furniture store and fitness/physical therapy center. Now it houses our business, Foreword Magazine, on the third floor, and our loft residence on the courtyard level. In 2013, we finished the interior renovations and started on a garage/apartment to balance the garden/courtyard. We are pleased to be able to provide luxury lodging downtown in a part of Traverse City's history. We travel extensively around the world for business and understand what it is like to have a place to land that is rich in creature comforts, close to everything, yet far enough away to enjoy peaceful retreat. Chefs at most of the local restaurants are friends of ours, we can direct you accordingly.

                  Why the Owner Chose Traverse City:
                  We were initially looking for real estate to house our business, but when we walked into The BOX we understood immediately the possibilities for creating a home and unique space for our business. We were pleased to be able to rip out a parking lot and add a garage/apartment to 'finish' improving this particular corner of Traverse City's history.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
                  The Boardman River view from every floor of The BOX inspired us to create something as stunning for our guests in the apartment. You will fall in love with its grace, we promise.
