Recent Traverse City reviews

  • Perfect combination of location and comfort.

    "This is a great house/cabin; very comfortable, clean, private and yet close to downtown Traverse City as well as Leelanau County and Old Mission peninsula. There are unlimited wine tasting opportunities with one Vineyard just up the hill within walking distance. It overlooks West Grand Traverse Bay and had spectacular views even in December. The home itself is very interesting with various personal collections and it's easy to see an artist lived here. The owner was very accommodating and is a goldmine of information about the area. We have stayed here multiple times over the last few years and it's wonderful in every season. We keep coming back because it feels like home."

  • Special place

    "My partner Tim and I had a wonderful week with our two dogs and friends on Treasure Island in the middle of Spider Lake. Tim had grown up vacationing at a now defunct resort on the end of the lake called L'DaRu and was thrilled to find various artefacts and references from his childhood as part of the decor of the cabin. Jack and Sue are among the leaders of the whole happy Spider Lake community and when the island isn't being rented, seem to welcome visitors by boat to enjoy the island's many amenities. But it felt like ours completely during our stay there. No one quite knows how the chimpmunky animals came to inhabit the island, but they're there and provided our pups with endless chasing fun. Rent with confidence if you love water, boats, privacy, and rustic comfort."

  • Wonderful vacation destination

    "My family of four (kids 7 and 9) had a wonderful time at the Bass Lake Lodge. We have vacationed in Traverse City many times but the first time on Bass Lake. The location is great! We found the cottage exceptionally clean and comfortable and stocked with everything you would need to feel at home, and then some! My son (9) caught 7 fish in the lake. The lake was very quiet. Not really a sandy bottom for swimming but throw some water shoes on and the kids did okay. Great value for what you get!! We hope to return some day."

  • 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."
