Matt and I are just completing a two year odyssey which involved remodeling a landmark building, the Cigar Box Factory in Traverse City. Built in 1920, cigar boxes were made and packed here until the early 1940s using the local cedar trees. Since then, it has been a telephone company, furniture store and fitness/physical therapy center. Now it houses our business, Foreword Magazine, on the third floor, and our loft residence on the main floor. Last summer we finished the interior renovations and started on a garage/apartment to balance the garden/courtyard. We are pleased to be able to provide luxury lodging downtown in a part of Traverse City's history. We travel extensively around the world for business and understand what it is like to have a place to land that is rich in creature comforts, close to everything, yet far enough away to enjoy peaceful retreat. Chefs at most of the local restaurants are friends of ours, we can direct you accordingly.

Victoria Champagne-Sutherland purchased this apartment in 2011

We were initially looking for real estate to house our business, but when we walked into The BOX we understood immediately the possibilities for creating a home and unique space to host community cultural events related to the arts and cooking. We were pleased to be able to rip out a parking lot and add a garage/apartment to 'finish' improving this particular corner of Traverse City's history.

The Boardman River view from every floor of The BOX inspired us to create something as stunning for our guests in the apartment. You will fall in love with its grace, we promise.

Perfect accommodations!

  • 5 of 5
The unit was clean, modern, and very comfortable. Our hosts were friendly and readily available to us if we needed anything (we had a document on our laptop that they offered to print for us). Plus, they had champagne, bread, and cheese waiting for us upon our arrival--so sweet!

With a location that is walking distance to just about everything in T.C., we're looking forward to staying there again next time!

Modern spacious studio 1/2 mi from downtown/beach

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here recently for our 1st wedding anniversary and were completely taken with Traverse City with the help of Victoria and Matt. The apartment is very spacious for a studio, with a full modern kitchen; complete with chilled champagne and homemade strawberry jam. The wonderful owners live across the courtyard and are extremely accommodating; letting us use their bikes to go downtown (about 2 blocks away), giving us a map of the city/restaurant recs. This place is a short walk (even shorter bike ride)away from the beach, fly-fishing, kayaking on the river, downtown restaurants, and 30mins away driving from the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park. 20 min drive to vineyards up the bay. It's also a short bike ride/drive to a market for all grocery needs. Would definitely recommend for an adventurous couple! Thank you Victoria & Matt (&Charles!)

Owner's Response: Dear Rachel,

We were so glad to meet you both and thrilled that you had a wonderful weekend. It helps when there is a film festival for a backdrop, perfect beach weather and reservations at top restaurants to celebrate your special occasion. Hoping to see you back here again soon, Traverse City is a four season destination!

Wonderful time !

  • 5 of 5
I can only give the best rating for this place and its owners Victoria and Matt. Place is great, clean and modern and located so close Downtown, beach, and restaurants. We highly recommend Trattoria Stella for aficionados of good food. You can also use bikes provided by Owners and have a ride to beautiful trails or around the city. Once again, thank you Victoria and Matt for your hospitality !
Best Regards.

Beautiful open space a short walk from down town

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful place and people. The owners live across the art garden from the condo and could not have been more accommodating and friendly. The location is great and quiet. It is a open concept with large windows to let the light in. A great stay and we will be back.

Cheers

Memorial Day Weekend/Bayshore Marathon

  • 5 of 5
Charming, clean loft that's walking distance from downtown! We came here for the Bayshore marathon and Victoria had bananas and a fresh baguette waiting for us as well as a celebratory bottle of champagne. The space has a contemporary feel with special amenities such as a washer/dryer with laundry detergent, fully stocked kitchen supplies and bikes that we used to tour the downtown area. The bed was comfortable but not all windows had blinds/drapes so it was hard to sleep in once the sun came up. Overall, we loved our stay here and would definitely recommend it to others!!

Owner's Response: Brain, thanks for the nice review. You are one of our first guests so good to get the feedback. We will work on the window coverings issue as it stays light out for a long time in the summer in Northern Michigan! Looking forward to seeing you again soon.

Traverse City area is becoming one of the hottest vacation destinations in the world. VITALIA offers a premium experience with restaurants, shopping, beaches nearby, with a quiet place to retreat. Park your car and relax with a great garden view.

We are one of the few self-catering, private accommodations downtown. The BOX, and the apartment over garage called Vitalia, are part of an historic landmark property and we've used our own extensive travel experiences to make this a relaxing escape with luxury fittings.

We run a business and live in the building across the courtyard, but respect our guest's privacy.

We are the edge of the historic Boardman Neighborhood. Front Street shopping, beaches and excellent restaurants, yoga studio, coffee shops, running and biking trails, movie theatre and Open Space where many festivals are hosted just minutes walk away. We also have a great natural food store to stock your pantry nearby.

Bus stops are just a block away if you have to venture further, but with this location, location, location, walking is the ticket once you park your car.

The Boardman River, which runs into Grand Traverse Bay, is accessible across the street if you would like to bring your water accessories: kayaks, canoes, SUPs, fishing rods.

The property is located on the corner of Eighth St. and Boardman Avenue, just five minutes walk from the heart of downtown and overlooking the Boardman River. Guests are invited to relax in a formal garden at The BOX, or stay inside during a rainy afternoon napping, reading or watching a movie. There is a full kitchen to exercise the foodie in you, with access to nearby natural foods market nearby and farmers market May-October.
