Great place to stay in a great area!

My husband and I were in Traverse City for a wedding and decided to make a vacation of it. I was looking for a place that was a kind of home base for everything and this fit the bill nicely. This loft met our needs perfectly - enough space for 2, clean, comfortable, relaxing and quiet. All of the pictures and descriptions are accurate. Yes, there is no TV but honestly you don't need one.

The Commons is a very unique area and there is a lot to do and see within walking distance. We went to several restaurants and shops and did some hiking - all practically right outside our door. We walked to downtown Traverse City (about 20 minutes) and would have rented a bike and tried out the numerous trails if we had had time.

This was our first time using VRBO and I hope every experience is as good as this one was. Chelsea was very responsive to my questions and we are considering visiting the area again to see some of the things we missed out on the first time around. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Lovely Loft in Fabulous Setting

Lovely Loft in a historic building makes for a wonderful stay. Enjoyed the shopping and dining available in the building as well as the balcony of the loft apartment. Nearby hiking trails were a huge plus as was the proximity to the beaches and historic Traverse City downtown area. Convenient location for day trips. Owners very easy to work with to coordinate your stay. Whether used for a weekend retreat or a longer stay, 304850 is a great choice for 2-4 people.

We rented this loft style condo for a weekend and it was great! Very clean, cozy, and welcoming!

Plenty of room in the loft, with a very comfy bed and clean living and bathroom areas.

A quick drive to the downtown areas (about 2-3 minutes) and the coffee shop and other shops on site were pretty neat.

Will definitely try to book this again next year!

Owner was very nice and accomodating for key pick up and availability. Building and surrounding area of property was interesting and enjoyable to explore. Having shops and restaurants on site was wonderful especially Stella's Trattoria. Great location for getting to downtown and other locations nearby. Property was clean except for some webs and a dirty refridgerator. Property was comfortable enough since we spent very little time in it other than to sleep. I would recommend it for the same purpose but for anyone looking to spend more time in it, please note it does not compare to other units in the building. The decor of this property has a bit of a college dorm feel to it.

Loft at Commons

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 25, 2012
  • Stayed: Aug 2012
We really enjoyed the unique buildings in the Commons and to experience the restoration of such a facility into apartments/shops. Cool building ! The ground floor shops, restaurant, coffee shop were great. TC is a wonderful city and this unit was close to our area's of interest. I was rather taken aback that the unit did not have some basic amenities (TV, coffee pot) in the unit (need to read/question what's not included a little closer). In addition the owners personal items filled the dresser drawers, wardrobe, vanities and most of the fridge making it more difficult than we are accustomed to from previous rental experience with VRBO to feel as fully settled in for a week long stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review!! One of the things we love about VRBO.. is its BY OWNER, so you get a chance to experience someone's home, and feel their personality and character throughout. This is our home during cold months, so we leave some of our "home"ness there as well as our creative touch and love for re-use, local and arts.
French Press is our preference for making coffee, so we leave out a large glass French Press, with instruction of how to easily use. The coffee roastery on site can provide you with the freshest roasts, ground perfectly for the press.
Summers in TC are filled with beauty, warmth, events, beaches, hammocks... so we do not keep a TV on site as it's not needed!! Wireless is available to watch netflix or hulu, and there is a great local movie store to rent dvds for your computer.
