We strive to provide a clean and comfortable home for you during your visit to the Traverse City area. Our own home is located next door so we are available for sight-seeing advice, restaurant recommendations as well as just being here for our guests. We know that vacations are a time to relax, have fun and be as hassle free as possible.
There is so much to do in the Traverse City area. Some examples are: winery tours and tasting rooms, Children’s Museum, Moomers Homemade Ice Cream (voted #1 in U.S.), Pirate’s Cove Adventure Park, the State Theatre (home of the Traverse City Film Festival), The village at Grand Traverse Commons, Dennos Museum, Interlochen Arts and Performance Academy, Music House Museum, Sleeping Bear National Lake Shore Park, Wuerfel Park (home to the minor league baseball team-Beach Bums) as well as all the biking, hiking, canoeing, and kayaking available in our area.
**Please note in a past review our guests commented on the beach, but it is not available to use by our guests in the Pines. This family was part of a family reunion in which they rented cottages that we own that have lakefront. You can google Willow Cottage and Maple Grove Cottage in Traverse City to get information on them.

Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: My husband and I have been married since 1979. We moved to Traverse City in 1980 from the city of Detroit. We have raised our 5 children in this beautiful area. We take great pride in providing a clean/comfortable home for our guests. We are easily available to our guests as our year round home is located next door.
Why the Owner Chose Traverse City, MI, USA:
The Pines is located next to our year round home as well as 2 beach-side cottages- Maple Grove and Willow Cottage. We did much updating to make the Pines a comfortable and spacious home away from home for our guests.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Parents with small children love the laundry room with a washer and dryer. You have your own private yard for yard games, campfires and just relaxation. The home's deck looks over the yard and yes, you can get a peek at the lake. While here is no access to the lake with this home, the boat launch is just down the road and there are multiple public access beaches in the area. For example, Traverse City just 10 minutes away the public beach is located one block north of downtown, on Lake Michigan's Grand Traverse Bay. There are many amenities at this beach (bathrooms, volleyball, kayak and bike rentals, food concessions). There are many other beaches in the area that we can direct you too.
