Recent Traverse City reviews

  • Great place to stay

    "Lovely cottage. The owners were wonderful and paid a lot of attention to detail to make sure we had everything we needed during our stay. A great place to come home to after exploring the Traverse City area. The cottage was very homey and the sunsets were incredible. And we were able to bring our dogs along on this vacation which made it even more enjoyable. Our Goldendoodle loved swimming in the clean, clear, water."

  • Room for all

    "This property was large enough to house all 10 of our family comfortably. The water inlet is right outside the back door with a personal beach, large deck, firepit and great fishing. We loved its close proximity to downtown Traverse City and all it has to offer. The kayaks and paddle boat kept our older kids busy. The owners were extremely accommodating. Thanks to Lois and Don for a relaxing week."

  • Fun & relaxation!

    "Three generations just enjoyed a weeks stay at this beautiful home. We stayed with our daughter, sin-in-law, 2 year old & 10 month old granddaughters & our youngest daughter. We enjoyed the large living space, bedrooms were roomy enough for all. My husband enjoyed showing our 2 year old granddaughter the art of fishing. She was casting & reeling in her little sun fish. Grandpa says she's a born natural. Enjoyed the nice kitchen as it gets old having to eat out day after day. Lots of room inside for the baby to crawl about. Nice spacious deck out back. Hubby enjoyed his meals out there. A couple of us took advantage of the hot tub a few times. The pontoon paddle boat was fun for those choosing to use it. The two year old enjoyed walking in the water. Very shallow, making it great for little kids to splash & play. Saw a lot of wildlife: turtles, frogs, snakes, rabbits, ducks, geese, woodpeckers and the biggest crows I've ever seen. An all around good time for all ages."

  • Bay Park Condo - Traverse City, Michigan

    "We really enjoyed this condo, was near downtown and walking distance to restaurants and shops, across from bay & beaches. The unit was very nicely furnished and the amenities were by far the best for any VRBO units we have rented recently. Often places have minimal supplies and low quality dishes etc. This condo clearly shows owner pride. We were very comfortable and enjoyed our morning coffee and evening cocktails on the balconies. Lovely area and weather was pleasant. Unit does involve stairs to second floor and to upstairs bedrooms, but was no problem for us. Very friendly people at this complex."

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.
