5 Bedroom + Den 4 Full Bath Beach House On East Traverse Bay In Traverse City

Great outdoor space with wonderful lake access.

  • 4 of 5

The outdoor space right on the lake was the highlight of this property. We had 3 toddlers in our group and being right on the water was convenient and we never ventured to another beach during our stay. The water is shallow and great for swimming with kids.

The house has plenty of space for our group (13 adults and 3 toddlers),however the room layout is a little odd. The downstairs bedrooms are somewhat connected and the sound carries very easily. Overall it is large, has enough bathrooms and is well equipped. I would consider renting again for the location and Lake access.

Huge house on Traverse Bay, family vacation find.

  • 4 of 5

Throughly enjoyed our stay. Plenty of room for our group of 17. Comfortable furnishings and completely stocked. Sleeping quarters comfortable, upstairs and downstairs kitchens great idea.

But, this is a very busy street, which made it challenging for biking especially with kids. Great patio and campfire area but difficult to have any privacy. The hotel next door was disturbing, homeowner should plant some bamboo so it can increase privacy. The dock was really convenient for swimming and fishing, however water is too shallow for boating. The barbecue grill was a great idea but out of propane;we replace it. But we really had a great time just different for us since we’re use to a quiet small quaint town. Traverse City is great but really busy.

Wonderful location and amenities

  • 5 of 5

The five bedrooms, four bathrooms, three tvs, and two kitchens served us well. The beach sand and extended dock served well for play. We enjoyed use of a kayak and paddle board. Boat rental was two doors away. There were plenty of dishes and towels, etc. We enjoyed beautiful sunsets and sunrises. I give this place a five star rating.

Would stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this wonderful property on East Bay. The house is directly on the water with a sandy beach area with fire pit which was so fun at night. The dock was helpful for swimming. We enjoyed the beautiful sunsets on the back patio which is furnished with plenty of chairs and tables which was nice. The kitchen works well for a large group. We celebrated my aunt's 80th birthday here and had a blast.
