We had a great time in Michigan and the loft was very nice. It provided everything we needed. It was a very unique building and the loft was very up to date.

Good Location, close to Downtown.

  • 4 of 5

Property was clean and comfortable. Owner always available for questions. Bed was very comfy. The spiral staircase was a bit challenging😁. Plenty of cookware and dishes. Quiet setting. The shared balcony was nice. Could hear the concert on the back lawn, which was very cool.

Perfect for our long weekend

  • 5 of 5

We rented the loft for 4 nights Thursday -Monday . Our daughter got married in tc and it was ideal for us so we didn't have to drive back and forth to our home 40 miles away. The furnishings were very unique and it was a wonderful change from a regular hotel . The access to the shops, Spanglish , Pleasanton bakery and higher grounds makes for a special place.

Cool loft condominium

  • 5 of 5

Traverse City Commons is a great place sto stay. There are two excellent restaurants, two wine tasting rooms and coffes on the premises as well as a variety of shops, including several art galeries. We always walked to downtown; it takes approximatly 30 to 35 minutes. It is a nice and safe walk even at night. There is a beautiful park around the complex, including almost 500 acres of woods with numerous hiking trails. The condo is spacious for two people and has everything you need (there is a laundry on every floor, if you need that). There was a TV, but we nevet touched that. There is so much to do in th area; you should not watch TV. The internet was fast.

Lovely centrally located property, perfect for a weekend getaway for 4 friends.

  • 5 of 5

This condo was a great option for our weekend getaway. The location within The Village was a unique experience. The dining options were a little limited in The Village but we were just a short drive from all the options of downtown Traverse City. We enjoyed wine tasting at Blackstar Farms tasting room, pastries from Pleasonton Bakery, and shopping throughout particularly the used bookstore. The miles of walking/hiking trails behind the village made for a nice workout. Chelsea was just a text away if we had any issues but there were none. Would definitely recommend this rental and consider it for a return trip.
