Overview

About the property

A 2 bedroom 1 bath air conditioned bungalow in a quiet neighborhood 1 block from the highway (the home doesn't back up to parkway). The master bedroom has a queen size bed, 2 closets and a TV. The second bedroom is cozy with a twin over a full bunk bed. This room has one closet.

The living room and both bedrooms have wood floors that we just had refinished. The kitchen is fully stocked for cooking, including a full size electric stove and oven, refrigerator and dishwasher. In addition we have a gas grill in the back. The state park is about 1/4 mile away and has a sugar sand beach on East Bay.

Our bungalow will be a quiet retreat after a busy day visiting the beautiful Grand Traverse Area.

About Donna

I graduated from Traverse City High School as did our children. My husband attended the Maritime Academy at NMC and is a Chief Engineer who sails on a 1000 ft. freighter on the Great Lakes. I am a RN at Munson Medical Center. In the winter I like to play hockey, curl, xc-ski and snow shoe. In the summer we enjoy mushrooming, hiking, and relaxing at our cottage. My husband enjoys fishing of any kind, winter or summer.

Donna purchased this bungalow in 2014

Why Donna chose Northwest

What makes this bungalow unique

This home is uniquely situated to give you quick easy access to all the area amenities, yet is in a quiet neighborhood. We offer a couple or small family the chance to spread out and have some space while relaxing between festival activities.

We had a perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

First off, Donna and her husband were very helpful to us with a situation to park my boat. They took the time to take a photo and measure the area to make sure I would have room to park. They definitely went above and beyond to help us.

The house was very nice. You could tell they did a lot of work to get it in excellent condition. It was perfect for my wife and son and I. Also Donna took the time to get back with me on many occasions when I had questions.

We will definitely choose this rental again on our next trip to Traverse City.

This bungalow in TC exceeded all of our expectations. Not only was it immaculate, it was well-stocked and comfortable for the four of us. We will definitely be back.

We had a wonderful stay here! Three friends and I stayed here recently during our momcation. It was clean, comfortable and in a nice quiet neighborhood. Donna was great to communicate with and there were no crazy hidden fees. Thank you, Donna!

Traverse area stay

  • 5 of 5

Traverse Area Bungalow is a very clean and comfortable place to stay in Traverse City. Our group of 4 were in the area for a wedding. The bungalow was a perfect place to stay and conviently located close to restaurants, grocery stores etc. We also loved how close the lake was. The bungalow also offers lots of amenities (like an iron and ironing board for the suits) which made it easy to just pack our personal belongings and go on our mini vacation!

Great Neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

This is a cute, simple little house in a beautiful neighborhood of Traverse City. The master bedroom is large while the second bedroom fairly small with bunks. Living area worked just fine for two of us...the kitchen is huge...so plenty of room for those who want to eat at home for their stay. The area has a ton of restaurants and is developing their farm fresh and foodie culture...and there are plenty of wine tasting opportunities very close by. A great resting place while visiting the area. Nothing fancy. Simple, clean and close.

Traverse City is known as a top 5 foodie destination per Bon Appetite Magazine. There are many wonderful restaurants in the area known for their farm to table foods. Wine tours on both the Old Mission and Leelanau Peninsula are not to be missed. There are also many local brew pubs and distilleries in the area.

The Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes 30 miles away was voted one of the most scenic areas in the USA. Don't miss the dune climb and Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive.

Summer time includes The National Cherry Festival July 4 - 11 featuring a free air show over the bay by the USAF Thunderbirds this year. Traverse City Film Festival July 28-August 2.

Traverse Area Tart Trail is a short 3 blocks away. The bike path goes right downtown and is about a 15 minute ride and is often quicker then taking a vehicle.
