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 Elk Lake

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.

Great location with Beautiful scenery!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Very good. Nice view and good location.

  • 4 of 5

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

vertical blinds.

The room was very clean.

Clean, quaint, great location

  • 5 of 5

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.

Cozy retreat

  • 5 of 5

Walked into unit and Wow, "it is cozy"! But it is perfect for two people who are looking to relax after a long day at the numerous wineries around and near Traverse City. We were too late for the sunsets but I'm sure they were great. Cons: We did have to get a bag of ice for our cooler as the small fridge/freezer did not have the space for ice. And my husband would have liked a listing of the TV channels as the guide on the TV did not work and he was looking for the FS1 Channel and had to cruise through the entire channel lineup twice before he found it. We'll be back as we have many more wineries to check out.

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.
