Recent Traverse City reviews

  • Romantic Get Away on Bass Lake

    "Cute cottage with all amenities and more. Cottage has nice sandy frontage, fire pit and sleeping up to six (bunk beds/pull out sofa/master). Has a nice big wrap around porch with great view of the lake. We made it up for fall color tour, it is only a 10 minute drive to downtown Traverse City and a short scenic drive to Empire. Being the fall didn't get to use the lake at all, but looks like kayak, boats, fishing, and pontoons all around, would be a great place for family with kids to spend time on the lake in the summer. Dan and Nancy were great and they have done a great job decorating the cottage. We will be back for sure."

  • What a great place!

    "My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at Harv's place and it was outstanding! The condo is furnished and done so well that you will never want to leave and visit all the great activities that Traverse City has to offer. But we finally left and had a tremendous time! Thanks again Harv for a wonderful weekend."

  • Like a Parisian Apartment

    "My husband and I booked this property after spending a week in the area this summer while our daughter was at Interlochen, with the plans to spend a long weekend with my brother and sister in law. Unfortunately, they were unable at the last minute to join us, so the apartment was more extravagantly sized than we required. It was so completely lovely, though, that we did not regret having it on our own. The space itself has the feel of a Parisian apartment--age and history embued with an individualistic, modern aesthetic, a great balance of comfort and elegance. The details of the decor exceeded what you typically find in a unit designed for rental--the art on the wall, the books on the shelf--felt like a home rather than someone's investment project. The attention to lighting was fantastic: in addition to the expected overhead lighting, there are beautiful overhead fixtures and area lighting that add both atmosphere and utility. Ceilings are enormously high, and the space has much natural light in all but the second bedroom (which is cunningly decorated in a richer color palate and a bit more ornate feel to emphasize a sumptuous feel), and overlooks the front lawn of the property. The Master suite is truly lovely: big enough to be comfortable and small enough to be cozy, with a gigantic window and a tremendous bathroom with a walk in closet with a closet system. We stayed for a long weekend in the fall and did not cook our meals, but I inventoried the kitchen, and it was well stocked, with knives, pots, etc. of higher quality than often found in rentals. Very coo-friendly, though the table is very small, and could only seat 4. The photos on the site truly cannot convey the loveliness of this apartment. The property itself has a couple of good Italian restaurants, an artisanal bakery, winery, coffee roaster/shop, boutiques, a Pilates studio, and a large wooded park with beautifully groomed and marked trails, all of which we used. It is minutes away from any part of downtown Traverse City, and yet is perfectly self contained with amenities if the day is rainy, lazy or both. This is an accommodation we hope to visit again and would recommend without hesitation."

Traverse City Travel Tips

Experience a Rejuvenating Return to Nature at Traverse City Vacation Rentals

Traverse City is the definitive "Up North" experience for Michigan! If you want beaches, forest trails, great shopping, and fantastic restaurants, they're all within your reach. There's lots of Traverse City lodging available for your vacation. With just the click of a button, you could be spending your next summer getaway at one of the many Northwest Michigan lake houses available in Traverse City.

Redefine Comfort with a Traverse City Vacation Home

Staying at tacky, overpriced hotels while vacationing is a bad habit that needs to be stopped immediately. You'll understand why the minute you step foot in a vacation home. Instead of cramped, homes are spacious and expansive, giving you and your family all the room you need to stretch out. Instead of waiting for your turn to use the shower, you can enjoy multiple bathrooms, in addition to multiple bedrooms, a living room, a dining room, and whatever your heart desires. Instead of eating whatever the continental breakfast or nearby drive-thru has to offer, cook your own meals from the comfort of your very own kitchen. And instead of retreating to the balcony—if your hotel even has one—you could enjoy a backyard with a lake.

The Best of Northern Michigan

Traverse City strikes the perfect balance between large town and quiet summer getaway. There's plenty to do here including hiking though the beautiful forests, boating on Lake Michigan, or enjoying any of the multiple beaches in the area. Go on an adventurous stroll through the rolling Sleeping Bear Dunes, check out some local brews at a microbrewery, and enjoy all the fine dining and shopping this fantastic town has to offer.
