About the property

One Bedroom Condo Just Above The Mercato

Our one bedroom, getaway condo is in the historic Building 50 at the Grand Traverse Commons Village. We are steps away from The Mercato shops: restaurants, markets, galleries, wineries, boutiques and more.

The Commons is the largest historic preservation project in the country at the site of the 150 year-old Traverse City state hospital. The Village is surrounded by 450 acres of nature preserve, with marked hiking trails starting right outside the door.

Enjoy the best of both worlds in an idyllic natural setting with feel of urban living. You are just a short walk away from beautiful Lake Michigan and downtown Traverse City. The Old Mission and Leelanau peninsulas are less than 10 minutes away. Sleeping Bear National Park with attractions year-round is only 30 minutes. This is more than just a vacation, it's an adventure!

Our condo is perfect for a mature (over 25) couple. It's also a great single person's destination, providing a truly unique, one-of-a-kind experience.

Enjoy 13-foot ceilings; restored, original hardwood floors; 3 8-foot windows; granite countertops over custom cupboards and a spacious, tiled shower. Village amenities abound.

Little Gem

  • 5 of 5

This condo is perfect for one or two - although we did manage 4 for a night by using the couch that converts to bed. Tastefully decorated and comfortable condo and complex. The Commons area offers a nice assortment of shops, restaurants, a local brewery and bakery. While we had hoped to xcountry ski during our visit the weather didn't cooperate. Thankfully there are plenty of other recreational options and we enjoyed hiking the trails behind the condo and in surrounding TC areas. Bring bikes in the summer and make your trips around town super convenient. Karen was easy to contact and very helpful.

Little gem in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! The flat is small but lovely and perfect for 1-2 people. The location of the flat in the commons is amazing, right above shops, restaraunts and steps away from great trails. Karen is a great hostess/ owner, got back to me quickly with any questions. The village is a great place to stay, my favorite in the Traverse City area out of the several we have stayed.

Stylish Studio in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time staying in this condo. It is perfect for me – great location, quiet, and looks even better in person than in the pictures. I like that there is space to put everything away (in the living area, kitchen and bathroom) so I could live in a nice, neat condo for the week. Karen is very quick to respond to all communications. I hope to stay there again next summer!

Cozy Getaway Review

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying in this cute condo. Be aware that housekeeping fee of $50 is NOT included as advertised in the listing. Be prepared to submit a $200 refundable damage deposit in addition to the rental fee. Condo has cable, but WiFi would have been helpful.
