Doesn't deserve a star

  • 1 of 5

I don't even know where to begin. My family was excited to enjoy everything that supposedly The Grand Traverse Resort had to offer. We have used VRBO for several family vacations, and I should have realized with only one review, something wasn't right.  We have never stayed in a house that the garage was inaccessible to store our golf clubs and other things. While the pictures on their website look great the they don't exactly tell the whole story! 

Unfortunately the resort and "Beach" house didn't offer much! 

About the house; it is very large and could accomadate  many people, however it is far from a beach house and the picture shows you the "view" of hole 15 of the course.  Not much of a view! 

You are not within walking distance of the resort. The biggest disappointment was the resort itself, the place is long in the tooth and needs a facelift. 

Yes, it's within walking distance of nothing except it's own golf courses. 

if you don't play golf here is little to do at the resort - regardless of the facilities - for one reason or anohter you just can't or don't want to use them. 

Specifics:

He resort grabs you for an additional 15% for tax and resort fees upon check in. 

We would love to find the location of picture 21 of 24 was taken! Can you say misrepresentation. 

GTR is a wedding factory plain and simple - get me in and get em out......high margin, one night stay. 

Every past VRBO rental had a book that outlined the area, restaurants, TV channels and we would always receive a welcome call to ensure everything was good with the house. 

This day in age, we don't expect to watch TV on a 32 inch TV either! 

The outdoor pool area was such a disappointment.... big drunkfest as the "resort" allows people to bring their own beer. Cans floating in the pool, no towels etc. 

- No relaxing afternoon by the pool at the GTR. Why? No shade umbrellas at the pools! In 90 degree weather! We were told it was a "liability issue", like skin cancer is not? Scant shade from trees and could not sit out more then one hour. 

- Most of the rest of the hotel - shops, coffee bar, etc. roll up the carpet at 6:00 pm.

- Despite the description on the web site, their beach  was not within a comfortable walk in summer heat.  I wouldn't call it much of a beach, let alone a resort beach! 

- If you go to their beach, keep in mind that the floating trampoline is $60 per hour to rent, so think twice before letting the kids get hooked. No signs or any warning, it's jus

Owner's Response: We are sorry that this guest did not have a good stay and did not like the resort. Please note that the issues that this guest elaborates on are more about the resort and not the house. The house was built in 2006. It is large, well decorated, and very comfortable. It does have expansive reviews overlooking holes 15 and 16 on The Bear golf course. My family certainly enjoys the views and we believe that you will as well. The house is booked solid every year from mid-June through Labor Day. It also booked regularly throughout the rest of the year. Most of the guests are repeat guests. The resort is a very nice resort with three (3) excellent golf courses, numerous pools, indoor and out, and a lakefront beach. You can view its website, read about it online, see reviews online, and make the decision if it is a resort that is right for you and your family. Again, we are sorry that this family did not find the resort to be a good fit for them. However, in the almost ten (10) years that this house has been rented through the resort we have had many happy guests who have enjoyed the house and the resort. Not to mention the beautiful Traverse City area and all that it has to offer! Thank you for considering our house for your vacation!

Amazon Home at a Resort

Our entire family stayed here for a long weekend--our grown children and their children--10 of us in all--and we had a blast! I was worried the home wouldn't be big enough, but it was perfect for our families. We all had privacy, a view, a hot shower, comfy bed, and great company! This home was spacious and warm with great amenities inside and as part of the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa. We went skiing, snowmobling, tubing, skating, swimming, and dog sledding. Great memories. Thanks for sharing your beautifully decorated home with us.
