We spent much of the winter (yes, Traverse City is fabulous in the winter as well) in this fabulously located apartment, using it as a home base while we were building a home in the city. The views are breathtaking in any season, Sid is a gregarious and responsive owner, and the entire city is within walking distance. There is plenty of space for lots of guests, the kitchen is the best-equipped VRBO kitchen we've ever encountered (and we've seen plenty), and you can barbecue on the gas grill on the deck. If you truly want a downtown experience while taking in one-of-a-kind views, this is the place! Also . . . if you bring your own bicycles to enjoy the numerous bike paths Traverse City offers, there is a storage area at ground level. Bonus!
