Live large! Picture yourself in downtown Traverse City this summer: take your shoes off, head up to the rooftop deck with a beverage and watch the boats on the bay. When you’re ready, put your bathing suit on, grab the beach chairs, cross the street and take a dip in the bay. Hungry? Choose from over 30 restaurants in a six-block radius or run to our high-end neighborhood market for local produce, wine, fresh meat, and seafood to bring home and prepare a meal in the gourmet kitchen.
You’ll find every amenity you need in our fully furnished home. It’s only available two weeks in the summer, so take advantage early for this unique opportunity. We offer a fully appointed kitchen, two bedrooms with comfortable, new queen size beds and two full bathrooms. There is also a queen sofa bed in the loft. If you are here during the Fourth of July or Cherry Festival, you can watch the air show and fireworks from the rooftop deck.
Our home also features a hot tub and gas fire pit on the third-floor decks. We provide beach chairs and towels for your convenience, along with a washer and dryer. There is a 50-inch flat screen TV with Bluetooth soundbar.
We are being selective about who we rent to; we are looking for people who will love our house as much as we do. We will be nearby to assist you with anything you need.
You can connect to miles of paved trails just across the street. Mountain bikers will enjoy 3-25k loops at the Vasa trail system. Bike, kayak and stand-up paddleboards can be rented at the Bayfront Park, approximately 1/4 mile away. Hiking and fly fishing are superb on the Boardman River, a blue-ribbon trout stream. Just 30 minutes to the north, Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore was recently named the most beautiful place in America.
There are museums - the north's only children's museum and Dennos Museum, which holds the world's largest collection of Inuit art. There are numerous art galleries. Our downtown is one of the most vibrant in the state - unique shops and breweries abound.
Named a top-five Foodie Town by Bon Appetit, we love our local restaurants and will point you in the right direction. The best bakery in town is a half block away and you can often smell fresh bread and cinnamon rolls baking at night. There are a number of wineries on both our peninsulas and microbreweries abound.
Traverse City is home to the State Theatre, just named the top small theater in the country - you can walk to the State and its new sister theater, Bijou by the Bay. Art and first-run films are shown at the theater, along with kid's 25-cent matinees and classic films on Wednesday mornings. Traverse City's Film Festival takes place the last week of July - it is in its 13th year, attracting filmmakers, actors, and producers from around the world.
Walk, bike or drive to our many restaurants, wineries, breweries, bars and food trucks.
Come for all our festivals, for the Great Lakes, for family and new friends. Use our place as a hub for all your explorations to the surrounding counties!

The first floor has a separate efficiency apartment. The floors are thick concrete, so you will not likely to hear any noise. However, we ask that after 10 p.m., noise is kept to a minimum. There is a possibility there will be construction across the street, however, due to triple pane windows and super insulation, you will not hear any noise inside the house.
ABSOLUTELY NO PETS OR SMOKING. I have severe allergies.
