Both my husband and I grew up near Grand Rapids, MI where we currently live. If we could we would live in Traverse City now but my husband works at a hospital in Grand Rapids and enjoys what he does so we just visit the area as often as we can!

Dawn VanVolkinburg purchased this condo in 2012

We bought this condo because we both love northern Michigan especially the Traverse City area and have been coming here for years. We plan to retire in the area. In the meantime, we enjoy down time at our beautiful condo on the East Bay. When we can't be at the condo we like to have others enjoy it.

We fell in love with the area because how beautiful the area is. Lake Michigan, Sleeping Bear Dunes, Torch Lake, Mission Point and so many other beautiful things to see and enjoy! What kept us coming back is amidst all the beauty are wonderful welcoming people.

Great little place for a get away!

My husband and I and another couple rented this place for a few nights around New Years. We had a great time getting around Traverse City (wine tasting, sight seeing, eating downtown, and beer tasting!) as well as staying in the condo and hanging out. It was very snowy when we were up there, and the property maintenance had the parking area and the sidewalks cleaned each day.
The bathrooms and bedrooms were clean and good sized for our purposes. The owner is extremely kind and helpful. She always emailed us back promptly with answers to our questions. We all said we would stay there again!

We loved how comfortable and well appointed the decor was. Views of the Bay were stunning and had plenty of acres to walk/ hike to the water. I look forward to visiting again, with Traverse City and region well known as a foodie destination. We visited, Osiahs' Taco de Salsas, The Happy Hog, The Cook's House, Trattoria Stella, Black Star Farms, Leenanaw Cheese, Carlson's Fishery.

Relaxing Weekend

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 3, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
Loved staying at the condo. It was everything the description said and more. The weather was beautiful when we stayed. We enjoyed sitting on the deck relaxing and enjoying the beautiful view of the bay. Everything we needed was provided in the condo. The owner of the condo was more than accommodating and answered all my questions quickly. You should be aware, however, if you're planning a stay in the Fall and you have to go to Grand Traverse Resort to use the pool/spa facilities and this is an extra fee. This was not a deterrent for us. We have already reserved the condo for next year.

Stay here if you want to enjoy your trip to Traverse City and parts north!

From my very first inquiry, Dawn was fantastic. She went above and beyond to make sure my friend and I were able to aquire the property on the day we needed it (even asking her friends who had booked it, if they would go into a smaller unit). The location is beautful. I loved looking at the lake from the balcony everyday. The place was spotless and she even provided mini toiletries, a very nice touch and certainly not the norm for vacation rental housing. When we ended up arriving late (>11pm), I e-mailed her to say how much we liked the condo. She responded back, telling me that since we arrived so late, that we could stay late on Sunday and could even stay over until Monday for free if we wanted, since she didn't have other guests arriving that day. I was blown away by her generosity. The condo was comfortable and met our needs entirely. We visited Traverse City and went to Boyne Highlands for zip-lining. This was a great location to jump off from to do all the activities we had planned. I would definitely love to stay here on my next visit up North. We used to stay in hotels, but after this experience, I think I'll try to book through Dawn again. Excellent experience and no problems. Thanks again, Dawn! :D

Called the 'Gold Coast' the Traverse City area is a beautiful place to relax, walk, bike, visit wineries and breweries, go shopping, in the winter you can enjoy the lights and cross country and downhill skiing, watching the waves on Lake Michigan, snow shoeing and snowmobiling. There are activities for kids, adults, singles and couples to enjoy. There are 25 wineries on Leelanau Peninsula and many more on Old Mission Peninsula. Traverse City is also close to Elk Rapids, Alden, Leland, and Suttons Bay, these are quaint towns that are a must visit spring through fall. Torch Lake is a must see! It is one of the world's most beautiful lakes and looks like the Caribbean Ocean! Another must see is Good Harbor Beach miles of soft sand and views of the Manitou Islands and Sleeping Bear Dunes. Sleeping Bear Dunes was rated the most beautiful place to visit in 2011. Charlevoix, Petoskey and Glenn Arbor are all within a 45 minute drive and are a must visit as well.
