GREAT APARTMENT DOWNTOWN TC

Traverse City Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2BR, 1 BA spacious loft apartment. Family friendly, pets welcome.

The Flat is located above the fun French bistro, Foufou, in the heart of Traverse City, making it a fantastic home base for any of the fun festivals that happen throughout the year. A parking spot is provided in the lot across the street (a coup in the city!).

There are two bedrooms. One bedroom has a king sized bed. The second bedroom has two twin beds. There is a living area with a TV (dvd player), a dining area, which we have set for 4, but the table can extend to seat 12. The kitchen has a four burner electric stove, refrigerator and dishwasher. There is a coffee pot and a pantry stocked with the basics. The bathroom has a shower/bath and a full sized washer and dryer.

The apartment is clean, comfortable and an easy place to be. Dogs are welcome. We call this a loft because the bedroom walls to not reach to the (exposed) ceilings, so you can hear everything.

The apartment is accessed via the alley, in a separate entrance from the restaurant. It is private, well lit and secure. Guests find the space to be bigger than they expected. It is well furnished, yet sparse, which I think creates a sense of calm.

We are Brooke & Guillaume Hazael-Massieux. We moved to Leelanau county in 2006 when we bought La Becasse, a French country restaurant in Burdickville. Like many before us, we fell for the region hard and fast! In 2012 we opened Bistro Foufou in Traverse City and at the same time leased the charming apartment above the restaurant.

Brooke Hazael-Massieux purchased this apartment in 2012

The Flat, as we have taken to calling the space, is a fun loft apartment with an urban feel. It provides an excellent home base for Traverse City fun. We stayed here with our kids and puppy for a weekend last winter, and enjoyed being so close to everything. The entry is private, and the apartment is spacious. I can see also using the flat to host a small group if you are in town for a wedding. A parking space is included, which is a huge boon if you are driving. And, of course we are biased, but we think it would be fun to stay so close to a fun French bistro and would take advantage of eating in the restaurant or hanging out at the bar, and some nights simply getting food to go and enjoying the great apartment.

The apartment is easy to access, it's got great natural light, has the basics covered and is a fun way to vacation.

This is our second stay at this property and it has become my default go-to in northern Michigan. The location is perfect, right in the middle of downtown TC and within walking distance of just about everything. Our first stay had us snowed in but it didn't really impact us, we parked our cars and didn't see them again for 4 days and just walked everywhere we needed to go.

This last trip involved some travel difficulties on my end. The owner was extremely helpful and bent over backwards to accommodate my schedule. I can't speak highly enough about dealing with these folks. Fantastic experience all around.

My husband and I had the pleasure of renting this flat for the month of Feb 2014. It was great! The owners who also own the restaurant below (Bistro Foufou) were great to deal with and the flat was just as advertised. It's downtown location is perfect for enjoying the shops and restaurants and winter festivals while still being close enough to venues for skiing and snowshoeing. The fact that it includes a parking space was a real bonus. We had the opportunity to enjoy Bistro Foufou for cocktails and appetizers and plan to go back for dinner the next time we're in TC. The atmosphere was very nice and the staff friendly and informative. Highly recommended.

Loved this place! Fantastic loft & shockingly quiet for being above a restaurant. Interior was completely renovated & up-to-date. Pictures didn't do it justice. We came with our 2 small children who also adored the place & didn't want to leave. Great location close to all the action. Would HIGHLY recommend to anyone wanting to stay in the city. Wonderful vacation & would definitely stay again.

My husband and I loved our stay at this spacious, clean, bright and cheerful flat. The king sized bed is very comfortable and the friendly and attentive owners have put a lot of thought and effort into making this apartment a real home away from home. There is even a parking space across the street! The location of the flat makes it possible to walk to all the downtown stores and restaurants. There is some street noise in the early AM during trash pick-ups, but otherwise it's quiet and restful. Bistro FouFou (the restaurant below the flat which is also owned by Brooke and Guillaume) is a wonderful place for lunch, dinner and/or drinks. My husband and I will definitely plan to stay here again in the future!

Can't say enough good things about this Condo or the owners. It was exactly as advertised, maybe better. It was roomy, bright and very comfortable. The location is in the center of downtown, you really never have to get in a car if you don't want. The owners were terrific to work with and went out of their way to be helpful. This is a home run, you won't be disappointed. Also, try Bistro FouFou while you are in town, it's terrific.

Our apartment is located in downtown Traverse City, giving travelers the convenience of easy access to restaurants, movies (The State Theater!), shops, churches, banks, and grocery stores. And, this being Traverse City, the beach is a stone's throw away, easily accessed by foot or bike. Winery tours of Old Mission Peninsula and Leelanau County make for amazing day trips. The Traverse City Film Festival is an incredible event, for which this apartment is ideally situated. The Cherry Fest is a super family event that happens right outside the door.

There are nearby parks with playgrounds for kids. A short drive takes you to casinos, golf courses, and Interlochen Center for the Arts. And water! You can enjoy miles of beaches and with that many water-based activities.

Traverse City is delightful year round. It is a fabulous home base for fall color tours, as well as winter skiing. February is fun with the comedy fest and the beer & music festival. The nearby City Opera House has an amazing performance line-up year round, and you may be able to catch one of the National Writer Series conversations. In short, Traverse City has much to offer, and having a downtown home base puts you in the center of it.
