Recent Traverse City reviews

  • Excellent property!

    "Stayed here over the Harvest Stompede weekend... Property was clean, comfortable and well stocked. Great location on the lake, convenient for wine tasting in the peninsula or a short drive into Traverse City! Exceptional value compared to hotels in the area. Would definitely recommend to family and friends!"

  • Fall color tour getaway

    "We love Traverse City in the fall!! The colors are incredibly beautiful and the city is less busy because all of the tourists have left. This house is set back and surrounded by trees so it was a perfect secluded setting for a color tour week. The home was absolutely beautiful when we first walked in. There was plenty of space for all six of us- we each had our own corner of the house. We even had a small baby with us and could not hear him cry during the night. It was very nice to have a fully stocked kitchen and laundry available, the only problem was the fact that we couldn't figure out how to use the oven. We also could not figure out the heat very well but were able to get it adjusted quickly so that everyone was comfortable. Everything else was pretty self-explanatory and the owners had a very detailed list and directions for us. It was a very short trip into town- only 15 minutes from a Meijer, which was VERY convenient! We went out to dinner every night and tried all of the local (and not so local) breweries! We went to the Jolly Pumpkin, North Peak, 7 Monks, and Shorts (about an hour and fifteen mins away, but VERY worth it!) We also did some wine tasting; Black Star Farms and Chateau Grand Traverse are a must!! The local farmers market wasn’t very big because of it being so close to fall and the shops at the Grand Traverse Commons were pretty disappointing with the exception to Trattoria Stella for lunch- it was pretty pricey but definitely worth it! We were able to go fishing quite a bit- the Walleye fishing on Long Lake was amazing! The boat launch is a short trip away from the dock and a very easy in and out. Getting the boat up and down the driveway took a little skill though. The dock needed a small amount of work but held our boat for the entire week without any problems. The owners were great! They communicate quickly and efficiently. We did not have any issues while we were there that needed their attention. They sent everything we needed ahead of time and everything went off without a hitch. We would absolutely stay here again! It was such a beautiful place and within a short distance to the city but far enough away to stay out of the traffic."

  • 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!"

  • Great Family Get-Away!

    "We just got back from our week stay at this cabin and we leave w/wonderful memories! The accomodations were just like the pictures show. We rented the pontoon boat too which was great for a quick cruise around the lake or more leisurely excursions with swimming and fishing gear in tow. Our two boys (6 an 10) loved the backyard for swimming, fishing (incl frogs and minnows) and campfires. Took several trips into Traverse City as well as Sleeping Bear Dunes. Drove up Old Mission Bay to see the the beautiful homes, wineries, lighthouse and antique stores. Prirates Cove was a great half day adventure for the kids too! We really appreciated the owner's quick responses from the get-go and I would recommend this cabin to family & friends!"
