Recent Traverse City reviews

  • Beautiful spot on the river with excellent accomodations!!

    "I wanted the kids to have the cottage/cabin vacation that I knew as a child. This cottage did not disappoint! It was exactly what I had hoped for. We could hear the river as we drifted off to sleep after a day of kayaking, swimming, fishing, and enjoying the hot tub. We were able to grill on the deck, have bonfires in the fire pit, explore the trails, relax in the hammock and play board games or watch movies at night. You could not ask for a more gracious host than Richard. He gladly transported us and the kayaks to a launch spot. He brought us fish that had been caught in Grand Traverse bay that morning. The locations is great because it is secluded but only a few minutes from Traverse City. The Mayfield General Store has just about anything you might need and is only a couple of miles away. The cottage was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. The appliances were in great condition...we could throw in a load of laundry, wash the dishes in a dishwasher, microwave popcorn etc. The pictures do not do this cabin justice! See it for will not regret it!"

  • Super condo on the Miracle Mile!

    "Harv has truly distinguished his unit from all the rest at The Beach Condominiums. It's very tastefully decorated, and it's very close to great food, great shopping, and all the other things that make Traverse City a Trip Advisor top 10 beach destination. That's the only one NOT on an ocean. You could sit on the deck all day, and never tire of the view of the East Bay. Jet skis, kayaks, ski boats, pontoon boats, and stand up paddle boards are all available for rental without even putting your flip flops on. They're ready to go when you are. I CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK! Traverse City has it all, and Harv's condo is a top shelf rental!"

  • Wonderful location!

    "Lovely location on Silver lake! We had never been to Northeast Michigan before, so this was the perfect first experience. The cottage is in close proximity to Traverse City, which in itself, is cool! But we were able to comfortable house 5 of us for the week. Home is well cared for with all the amenities you would need for a week away. Ken is an exemplary host and treated the kids and I like extended family! We rented the pontoon boat that is made available, it really made the experience that much more enjoyable! Highly recommend the home and the area to anyone looking for a family friendly, lake side family vacation!"

  • 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."

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.
