  • Honeymoon heaven

    "After looking through VRBO, I discovered this gem. We decided to stay for our honeymoon because of its uniqueness. We were delighted when we drove up and cast our eyes upon the beautiful buildings and surroundings. We decided to take the guided tour and we were happy we did. We did not spend a great deal of time on the property but thoroughly enjoyed ourselves when we did do some exploring. We did eat at one of the fabulous restaurants, shopped at the boutiques, enjoyed the coffee shops, and I even took in a yoga class. We spent a majority of our time driving in our convertible all over the northern portion of Michigan's lower peninsula. What a spectacular time that was and the scenery was breathtaking We highly suggest that. We decided for our honeymoon to "unplug" and did not even need use of the TV. We did make use of the coffee pot a couple of times. My only wish was for a full length mirror somewhere in the condo. On the inside of the closet door upstairs outside the bathroom would have been an ideal place. The property is fabulous and the condo is quaint. We are planning a future trip and hope to stay again."

  • Summer Time In Northern Michigan

    "We found the cottage to be very clean and had all the amenities we needed for a wonderful two week stay. The owners were very nice, and helpful with anything we needed. Silver Lake is a beautiful lake and we enjoyed laying out and swimming off the floating dock. Everything is close by as far as shopping or even the casinoes."

  • Great place to stay & play

    "We were celebrating a 40th birthday with 8 girlfriends & everyone was happy with the accomodations. The unit looks better in person than the pics. Great decor, clean, well stocked kitchen, lots of linens & towels, nice furniture & lots of windows. Bedrooms are a nice size with queen beds but no extra room for air mattresses on the floor unless it's a twin. The living room has 2 twin size chair pullouts that we're comfy the couch pulled out as well. An aero bed is also available but you'll need to move the dining room table a bit to make room. Ground floor walk out level was convenient & there's outdoor furniture to enjoy a meal elfresco. The unit is located on the side of building (not facing the bay) & furthest from the water but still super close to the beach. Downtown Traverse city is 5 miles away & has great shopping & restaurants. The owner is easy to work with & local managers are available if needed. We had a great time & would definitely stay again."

  • Great vacation on a quiet lake.

    "I had a great 2 week vacation at this cozy cabin on Bass Lake. It was exactly what I was expecting - no surprises. I had an internet connectivity issue when I arrived that was quickly resolved. Other than that, I enjoyed fishing in the mornings/evenings, relaxing in a lounge chair on the well as hiking Sleeping Bear Dunes and visiting the great wineries in the area. I hope I have the opportunity to vacation 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.
