Location . . . Location . . . Location . . . On Lake Michigan/Little Traverse Bay. Steps from the water, sandy beach, park, marina, pier, bike path, Bear Creek and the charming village of Petoskey. Short drive or bike ride to Charlevoix and Harbor Springs, 2 miles to the Odawa Casino and near winter sports.
My wife and I decided to travel to Petoskey for the fall colors and discovered that we could rent this getaway for just a bit more than a hotel room. The location on Lake Street is marvelous. We did not need the car around the city. The walk to downtown is easy. We were upstairs. The view is across a park to the marina and the bay. The kitchen is well-appointed with soft-close drawers and doors, granite counters, and all the appliances you would need. The bedroom is more of a nook, but there are sliding doors and my wife was able to sleep on after I arose, made coffee, and fired up my computer. The bathroom is a nice size. The living area is also a nice size with cable and internet.
Everything was clean and well-maintained. The listing was accurate. The owners are very accommodating. I would recommend the property to friends and we plan on staying there again.
Finally, Petoskey is a great town - even this late in the season when many store owners have headed south. The tree colors rival those of my youth when as a Boy Scout I hiked the Adirondack Mountains.
We had a great time.
One week just wasn't enough time to enjoy this e-z living upstairs home away from home. With everything possible needed for cooking in, and comfy-cozy, it was a joy to be both chillin' at 'home' and taking a carless tour from upstairs to multiple streeted uptown. It's a beautiful walk from the lighthouse and beach right out front where Petosky stones are waiting to be found, along the Marina, Museum and through the tunnel which opens to the heart of the city. I could almost cast to the lighthouse which is surrounded by hungry smallies who could not resist a drop-shotted crawler, with salmon just as close. All of this along with a location allowing an easy day trip over the rolling hills of 'Troll' country (ask when you get there!), along the coast of Superior up into the high rock outcroppings of Canada. For years we've enjoyed doin' the Door, the Petosky area charmed us too. Our first visit will not be our last! Many Thanks to the very warm and friendly owners for VRBOing their home!
I enjoyed 13 days at this property where I enjoyed the beautiful scenery of Little Traverse Bay from my deck, the central location which allowed me to walk to Petoskey for lunch and shopping and the efficiency of the apartment due to its furnishings and the many supplies that helped make my cooking a small task.
The apartment was designed to allow for the most efficiency for the guests. Everything had its place and operated perfectly. I was surprised at the many kitchen items-- everything from a mixer to wine glasses, refrigerator bowls and lots of cookware. The washer and dryer operated perfectly as well as the internet and cable services.
Petoskey offers so many activities and this location was close to all of them. Everything from shopping, dining, and exploring galleries. I also explored the Harbor Springs area and Pond Hill Farm. Plus, the scenery allowed you the opportunity to walk to the lighthouse in the mornings, and enjoy the many sunrises and sunsets over the water. How can it get any better than this?
I look forward to my next visit.
We have been returning to this location each year because it meets our needs perfectly. The upstairs unit is the perfect size for a couple, the view is outstanding and the amenities just to our liking. The owners are always accessible and accommodating. It is an easy walk to the Gaslight District in Petoskey and there are many golf courses located within an easy drive. We love this place enough to have already booked for a week in 2017, highly recommend this property.
Lovely, a few blocks for the Gaslight district in Petoskey, restaurants, shopping. Lovely drives. Mackinac Island is just 1/2 hours away plus all the water sports you want. The Traverse Wheelway is literally at your front driveway and it is a beautiful and fairly flat (ok fairly flat towards Charlevoix....Harbor Springs more of a challenge!) Rental is up a set of steps and is a little A-Frame perched on top of a house!! Great light with windows nd skylights, all the amenities, good use of the space. ONLY boo-hoo I have is No Pets!!
Great Value for one of the best locations on Lil Traverse Bay.
Park your car and leave it til time to go home.
Convenient location, especially walking distance to downtown. Lively in the early evenings, with walkers and sunset watchers, gives a sense of small town community spirit. On Waterwheel Bike Path.
I walked past this unit for years always thinking it would be a terrific location to stay on the Bay. I was right. It is a comfortable second floor unit with a nice balcony and grill. Sunsets from the living room and sunrises from the bedroom. Nicely furnished; perfect size for one or two lazy people.
The owners of this sweet Bay front apartment are extremely, who are flexible and appreciate their guests.
