Guestbook comments from the owner
Bay Town Suite is a cross between a hotel and staying with family. Jody and Norm's hospitality is One-of-a-kind and they truly provide guests with wonderful accommodations. The room was very comfortable and gets some great sunlight through the large windows and skylight. The location was perfect, quiet but, a short walk to a small park and downtown. I definitely recommend staying in Bay Town Suite to anyone and everyone!! Enjoy!

Meet Norm & Jody:

We are excited about this new venture. We love living in Traverse City and we love to travel. One thing we've learned through travelling is how much we like staying with or meeting someone who knows the lay of the land. Getting the inside scoop on a destination makes everything about vacationing more enjoyable. We hope to offer that unique experience to you!

We enjoy beach time, dining out, great music, having fun with friends, and meeting new people. Bay Town Suite is our way of creating a business that capitalizes on our interests and expertise, while allowing us the freedom to enjoy and share the beauty of Traverse City.

Jody Mackey purchased this studio in 2013

Bay Town Suite is designed around spaciousness and comfort. Sleep peacefully on our King comfort mattress with quality linens and pillows. Relax on our sofa with a fire and watch TV or enjoy a beverage from the mini fridge. Need our fold out bed? No problem; there is plenty of room for an extra guest. At Bay Town Suite you get it all; comfort, value, and the quality of a hotel suite. Make your reservation today.

At Bay Town Suite, you get the best of both worlds, great accomodations and a personalized vacation with all the extra touches that the big hotels can't provide. Best of all is our location-- in the heart of downtown TC for a fraction of hotel prices!

Perfect Suite for Comfort, Cleanliness and Location!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Bay Town Suite will be one of the most memorable vacations ever. Much to what Traverse City area offers but mainly because of the guest service we received while staying at Bay Town Suites. Norm and Jody the owners are the best. We were made to feel like family in their well maintained and cared for suite. The pictures actually do not show just how spacious the suite is. The king size bed was so comfortable both my husband and I had such good nights rest we never ran out of energy for all the activities we planned. The rooms and property are exceptionally clean, and well maintained. We had the comfort of a great air conditioner, fireplace, microwave, mini frig and kitchenette. Jody and Norm were the best in providing us with anything we needed. The accommodations of beach towels, chairs, coolers, grill were wonderful! They had a travel guide in our room with fantastic recommendations. The Apache Trout Grill was just as they promised, delicious food and fantastic view of the bay. The vineyards starting just 5 miles away were some of the best we have visited with great scenery and tasting rooms. I would highly recommend this property! We absolutely feel in love with TC, Bay Town Suites and especially with Jody and Norm!

We had a great time during our stay at Bay Town Suite. Jody was incredibly helpful and flexible throughout our stay. Provided excellent meal recommendations. The location is fantastic, a quick walk to downtown Traverse City, and close to the highways and both peninsulas.

Fabulous place to stay

  • 5 of 5
We travelled to Traverse City in August 2013 with our 7-year-old daughter and our dog and stayed wt Bay Town Suite. The suite is large and comfortable, immaculate, very close to the beach and a moderate walk or short drive from downtown Traverse City. Jody and Norm are amazing hosts, making sure you have everything you need, including all the information about TC attractions and restaurants. Our daughter particularly enjoyed playing with their puppy Yzie and the evening fire and s'mores making was a highlight of the visit. Highly recommended!

Perfect place for to explore Traverse City, and more

  • 5 of 5
Jody and Norm are super cool/super chill property owners. The one room suite is very nice and clean. King size bed (very comfy), mini fridge, microwave, and a very nice private bathroom. This place is brand new! We arrived late Thursday due to traffic, but Jody & Norm waited up for us, and then enjoyed some craft beer and smores beside their beautiful fire pit area. Keeping with the yard; they have a big yard that was just perfect for our dog Rosie. Rosie got to play with their new pup, who's a sweetheart! When we woke, we discovered the beach & Traverse Bay are only a 2 block walk. Grab a cup of coffee on the way at CuppaJoe! Their location is tucked away in a quiet part of town, and only a 10 minute leisurely walk into town. They offered us bikes as well, which would make the track even easier. We jogged every morning along the water, right from our location; again, perfect. I've been visitng Traverse City for all 31 years of my life, and wanted a place downtown to change things up from our usual rental on Long Lake. Not only are Jody and Norm incredibly nice, they serve as a Traverse City encyclopedia. They know all the spots: foodie spots/coffee spots/craft beers/activities/etc. You get the point. Lastly, please do yourself a favor and take them up on their offer, oh and visit the Sleeping Bear Dunes! Obviously.

Bay Town suite is a unique gem in Traverse City!

  • 5 of 5
Bay Town suite is a unique gem in Traverse City! An entire new way to vacation, staying at the Bay Town suites was a cross between staying in a luxury suite and staying with family. The immaculate suite was so comfortable and cozy. Norm and Jody gave us all the insider tips on where to eat, what to do and how to save money. Can you say "Winning"?

It is a perfect accommodation for families because of the easy access to beaches, restaurants and a beautiful yard with a patio that we enjoyed making s'mores with Jody and family. We also appreciated such easy rental of bikes and kayaks and my son loved playing basketball with the hoop out back. Our trip to Traverse City was one of the best vacations we've ever taken full of fun, food and comfort.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
We traveled to Traverse City for my son's lacrosse tournament. We were lucky enough to be able book at Baytown Suite, as everything else was sold out. It is an ideal place to stay at in Traverse City. The room is spacious and cozy, the bed is comfortable, and accommodations are great! It's and open one bedroom suite, with a large mini fridge, toaster, microwave, and a nice fireplace. There is always a rollaway bed available for you to use. The whole suite is extremely clean, beautiful, and new. There is a grill outside that you can use whenever you would like to. There is an unwritten tradition of sitting by the firepit and making Jody's "special" S'mores/ They are absolutelty delicious! It is in walking distance from Downtown Traverse City and the beach. You have your own private entrance from the rear of the house, which is also where the parking is located at. And best of all, Norm and Jody make your stay there an experience to remember! They make you feel as if you are at a home away from home. Staying here will provide you with a unique experience that is impossible to find at any hotel or resort. The places that Jody recommends to go visit and see are absolutely beautiful, although you do need a car to go to them as they are 30+ minutes away. Although during our whole stay, the weather was not compliant, and was nowhere near beach worthy. But on the bright side, Jody and Norm made our stay quite wonderful and warm. We are also very grateful Jody let us checkout late on Sunday, so my son could go back to the room and shower after his tournament before we left to go back to Chicago. Baytown Suite is a must stay in Traverse City, as you will not regret it one bit! Thank you Norm and Jody for the wonderful stay! We will DEFINITELY be back!
