  • 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!"

  • Perfect spot!

    "We have rented in the Traverse City and Glen Arbor area for years. This was one of the best houses yet! The location is great. Its on a quiet part of the lake but not too far from Interlochen or TC. We kayaked, tubed and fished right outside our door. The house was clean, open and perfect for our larger group of 8. The owner was amazing in answering any questions and accommodating our requests. We will definitely be back!"

  • Great Lake View

    "We stayed here while attending our sons graduation from Interlochen Arts Academy high school, which is about a 1/2 hour drive from the cottage. Enjoyed the porch every evening looking out at the lake. The pictures and description is exactly as it appears. Very nice neighbors and surrounding areas. Lots of birds, squirrels, even a baby fox in the yard. Wonderful place!! Thanks for the great stay."

  • Wonderful Vacation in Traverse Bay!!

    "We just got home from a week at this wonderful cottage! The view is fantastic! There is so much to do and the location is great! We boated, tubed, water skied, biked, sailed, floated, put-putted, and even had s'mores. Duane and Vicki are great hosts. The description is accurate. We would love to come back."

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.
