  • 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 location for a vacation!!

    "Let me just say we had an amazing vacation in Traverse Michigan!! The home was inviting and the location couldn't have been more perfect. While you do share the private shoreline area with 3 other cabins, we were honestly the only ones enjoying the views and crystal clear waters! We also had several paddle boats, floating toys and a small paddle fishing boat at our disposal, which was awesome. We also took advantage of the fire pit by the shoreline and roasted marshmallows with our daughter the last night. Mr. Randy was an awesome host and made sure the cabin was stocked with all the essentials needed for our week long stay. He was also able to accommodate us with an additional day due to the weather. Perhaps my only suggestion would be a little upgrade to the cabin, a splash of vibrant colors would be awesome see! That's not really a complaint just a womanly touch suggestion ;). The cabin was clean and comfortable and we cannot wait for our trip back! Might I add the pictures Mr. Randy has posted bare in comparison to the beautiful clear waters, truly a must see to believe! Thank for making our trip one to remember and we hope to be back soon!"

  • Great condo with a great location.

    "We absolutely loved this condo with all the offered amenities. It’s housed in Traverse Commons, a destination in itself with much history. It’s a short drive to downtown and the beaches, but far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the downtown. The pictures online do not do it justice. I’m assuming the owners have a background in art. You could see, what I believe to be their work, throughout the unit. Personal touches everywhere. We had two adults, and a 20 and 17 y/o staying in this unit. There was more than enough room for the four of us. Granted the 20 and 18 y/o took their own blowup beds, but there was enough room on the first floor to accommodate the beds. The second floor had a desk and area for reading and the third floor was utilized as the master bedroom along with master bath. The condo has a nice kitchen, an additional ½ bath on the first floor with a huge outdoor balcony. What more do you need? The owners emailed suggested restaurants, shops, etc. prior to our stay. We wisely went along with their suggestions. Trattoria Stella is housed in the Commons. We highly suggest a meal there. It was simply amazing. A bit pricey, so you may want to go for lunch. There are several restaurants, bakeries, coffee shops, etc. on the grounds. I don’t believe you could go wrong with any of them. Would definitely recommend a stay there."

  • Had a great time

    "My family and I had a great time. Grand kids had great time on beach with paddle boat and row boat. Our family was very comfortable in the cabin. We hope to be considered next year for rental."

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.
