  • Amazon Home at a Resort

    "Our entire family stayed here for a long weekend--our grown children and their children--10 of us in all--and we had a blast! I was worried the home wouldn't be big enough, but it was perfect for our families. We all had privacy, a view, a hot shower, comfy bed, and great company! This home was spacious and warm with great amenities inside and as part of the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa. We went skiing, snowmobling, tubing, skating, swimming, and dog sledding. Great memories. Thanks for sharing your beautifully decorated home with us."

  • Stay here! You won't regret it!

    "The was our 2nd year staying at this lovely cottage and it was another wonderful one!!! Great TC weather topped off our great stay at this wonderful, homy cottage!! PROS: -Extremely clean -Extremely well-stocked everything (all the amenities of home and then some!!) -Great location (seems to be 5 minutes from everything; downtown TC, the mall, etc.) -Situated on a fantastic lake (it's warmer than the bays, very clean! -Nice, newer dock (great spot to fish from) -Ample seating outdoors -Patio area is a great spot to eat lunch/dinner with fantastic views of the lake -The deck has 2 nice bistro sets which are great for eating lunch or enjoying morning coffee -The front room is nice and sunny with GREAT views of the lake (large windows) -Furniture is extremely comfortable -The "cabin" room houses the TV, a SUPER long, comfy couch and a game table -a favorite spot to play late night games (there are many games there for both kids and adults) -The downstairs game room is a nice spot for rainy days (ping pong table, foosball table, gaming system for older kids) -Plenty of recreational amenities (tons of life vests, a paddle boat, 2 kayaks, fishing poles) -The bedrooms are spacious and very inviting -Bunk room for the kids is AWESOME (and there's a small bonus room in the bunk room that is fantastic if you have a baby and will be bringing along a pack n' play) -Beach is sandy and ample for kids to play -Swimming area is shallow enough for kids to swim close by shore -Nice floating dock CONS: -To us, the only real drawback of this house might be the landscaping just on the yard facing the lake. This house is absolutely adorable and, while it does not at all effect the functionality of the house, the clearing out of the property that sits on the water (going up both sides of the hill and around the basement area) would make this property so attractive. This is really the only reason we gave this home a 4 out of 5 stars. I wouldn't even really list the landscaping as a "con", but I figured people would think it was too good to be true if there weren't at least one! If you are a family looking for a wonderful vacation spot, this truly is the place for you. Silver Lake is beautiful and, for us, it's a nice break from the traffic of downtown TC. You're close to it all, but far enough away to have a peaceful vacation!!!! Thank you to the owners for another wonderful stay!"

  • very enjoyable

    "Great environment in a historical building that has been modernized. Clean, quiet, with an excellent view from the spacious porch. Living space is modest but we didn't mind as the overall experience was great. Located within walking distance of a wonderful bakery and coffee shop."

  • Perfect Getaway

    "We just enjoyed a week long stay at this lovely home, and honestly every aspect of our visit was perfect. Lisa was very helpful and replied right away when I had a question. You can tell that she truly wants her home to be a relaxing getaway for the folks who visit. The home is very gracious and she has thought of so many details to make your stay a pleasant one. The home is situated on a busy street, but we never had any trouble getting in/out of the drive, and there was no need to spend any time in the street-facing front yard, because the back of the home is the beach! We have two young children and I was a little concerned before arriving about being on a busy road, but it was not a problem for us at all. The thoughtfulness of the white noise machines in the bedroom was very much appreciated (although the traffic noise was not loud in my opinion - it was still super helpful to keep the kiddos asleep in their room.) The layout of the house is so nice for a vacation home. There is a long wash/mud/entry room where you can leave all of your bags etc. All of the windows look out onto the bay and the beach and it is just so peaceful and relaxing. We loved the outdoor furniture for meals, and we used the fire pit many times. It made it easy to enjoy these things because we were so close to the home so getting things to and from the kitchen was easy. There is also a large sun room porch that was nice on chilly mornings, since it heated up right away. I enjoyed relaxing with a book there. The decor of the home is modern, comfortable, tasteful, and beautiful. It was spotless when we arrived, and everything that guests may need (cleaning supplies etc.) was very well organized. The location of this home is really nice. We have also stayed in Glen Arbor and enjoyed that, but this was a really great set-up. It's nice to be on the bay, as the water is calm and quiet, but you are still on the vast Lake Michigan. Even though there are neighbors nearby, it felt like we had the whole beach to ourselves. Maybe because we went early in the season? It was very quiet and peaceful. Being in Traverse City meant easy access to some great bakeries and dining, and yet getting to the Leelanau peninsula was also quick and easy. I would definitely recommend this property, and I hope to stay here again!"

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.
