Recent Traverse City reviews

  • Great place to stay & play

    "We were celebrating a 40th birthday with 8 girlfriends & everyone was happy with the accomodations. The unit looks better in person than the pics. Great decor, clean, well stocked kitchen, lots of linens & towels, nice furniture & lots of windows. Bedrooms are a nice size with queen beds but no extra room for air mattresses on the floor unless it's a twin. The living room has 2 twin size chair pullouts that we're comfy the couch pulled out as well. An aero bed is also available but you'll need to move the dining room table a bit to make room. Ground floor walk out level was convenient & there's outdoor furniture to enjoy a meal elfresco. The unit is located on the side of building (not facing the bay) & furthest from the water but still super close to the beach. Downtown Traverse city is 5 miles away & has great shopping & restaurants. The owner is easy to work with & local managers are available if needed. We had a great time & would definitely stay again."

  • Beautiful Location!

    "My extended family of 8 spent a week here and we were generally very happy with our stay. The home is very spacious (important with a large family) and sits on a beautiful piece of property overlooking Mickey Lake. The lake is very quiet and we enjoyed a lot of time on the various decks outside. It is just a 10 minute drive to downtown Traverse City and walking distance to a small public beach on adjacent Long Lake. The internet access was good, however, the cable is basic only, and we were not able to watch the World Cup or the Tigers:( Unfortunately, there were a few frustrating aspects of our stay. The oven temperature display was not working and we needed to bake a birthday cake the first day. We spoke to the owner by phone and we agreed to try to blindly adjust the temp with incremental pushes of the button. We had to keep using this approach all week. Another disappointing aspect was that the air conditioning is only on the first floor (including the master bedroom) and not in the lower level where all the other beds are. It was quite hot and stuffy the first few nights as there are only a couple of small windows with screens that open on that level. We had to go out and buy a few fans. Fortunately, the weather cooled a bit the second half of the week. The kitchen could use some more supplies (bowls, silverware, pans) given that the home is supposed to accommodate 11 people. I think that as rentals go, this one is well pretty well maintained. The location was fantastic!"

  • Great place for a couples get away

    "We comfortably stay here with three couples for a weekend get away. Very close to town and only a block away from the TART trail system. It sure beat staying in a hotel as we were able to enjoy each others company in the peace of a home setting. We hope to be back next year for the Mud, Sweat and Beers mountian bike festival."

  • Nice and quiet location

    "We spend a few days at Lake Bass and it was a wonderful time. The lake is really nice and quiet. The house fits the description on their web site. We have watched the 7 minutes movie which shows a walkthrough the house and it demonstrates what you will get there. The only thing we were a little bit disappointed about was the BBQ-grill and that there were no coal available."

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.
