About Dawn VanVolkinburg
Both my husband and I grew up near Grand Rapids, MI where we currently live. If we could we would live in Traverse City now but my husband works at a hospital in Grand Rapids and enjoys what he does so we just visit the area as often as we can!
Dawn VanVolkinburg purchased this Studio in 2014
Why Dawn VanVolkinburg chose Peninsula
We bought this suite along with the one next door because we have a condo in the same complex and just one floor down from these. We love the location and the view so much we decided to buy another! We both love northern Michigan especially the Traverse City area and have been coming here for years. We plan to retire in the area. In the meantime, we enjoy down time at our beautiful condo on the East Bay. When we can't be at the condo we like to have others enjoy it.
What makes this Studio unique
We fell in love with the area because how beautiful the area is. Lake Michigan, Sleeping Bear Dunes, Torch Lake, Mission Point and so many other beautiful things to see and enjoy! What kept us coming back is amidst all the beauty are wonderful welcoming people.

Just fine. Not as nice as anticipated.
We had somewhat high expectations of this room, seeing as it had high ratings from other guests. Overall, we were content with the room but not blown away. Towels and linens had a mildew smell. There was a lack of comfortable seating and space. The bedding and pillows were cheap quality. The walls seemed paper-thin-- we could hear the neighbors' conversations almost clearly. That said, our stay gave us appreciable views of the water. The deck was lovely. The Keurig coffee was a nice bonus. The room was economical and just fine, nothing fancy and not overly comfortable. This place might have been worth it for the amenities, but due to the time of year we stayed, we did not utilize any of the amenities associated with the resort.
I loved the place! It's cleanliness & view were remarkable! I will be returning!
Great views and value!
Perfect for a couple to stay, enjoyed the view of the bay. Had everything we needed and not too far to drive to downtown Traverse City.
Great location with Beautiful scenery!
My husband and I went here for a short kid-free getaway! Perfect location, clean resort. We really wished we would've brought our kids because of all the activities, but overall enjoyed our stay & did I mention our view was breath taking!
Clean, quaint, great location
The location was the perfect distance to TC, the beach access was nice and the pool was also awesome. We spent 3 nights here for the cherry festival and we're extremely happy with the cleanliness. Would not recommend this l option for more than 2 adults.
Very good. Nice view and good location.
We liked the property. Refrigerator was not cold enough though.
Shower water leaked out because liner did not stay in place.
Tried to dry things and the dryer did not work. Some slats missing from the
The room was very clean.
Called the 'Gold Coast' the Traverse City area is a beautiful place to relax, walk, bike, visit wineries and breweries, go shopping, in the winter you can enjoy the lights and cross country and downhill skiing, watching the waves on Lake Michigan, snow shoeing and snowmobiling. There are activities for kids, adults, singles and couples to enjoy. There are 25 wineries on Leelanau Peninsula and many more on Old Mission Peninsula. Traverse City is also close to Elk Rapids, Alden, Leland, and Suttons Bay, these are quaint towns that are a must visit spring through fall. Torch Lake is a must see! It is one of the world's most beautiful lakes and looks like the Caribbean Ocean! Another must see is Good Harbor Beach miles of soft sand and views of the Manitou Islands and Sleeping Bear Dunes. Sleeping Bear Dunes was rated the most beautiful place to visit in 2011. Charlevoix, Petoskey and Glenn Arbor are all within a 45 minute drive and are a must visit as well.
