On the Bay Front, Layin Back

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

As a former 30 year Petoskey cottage owner I found this unit to be first class. Great view, walking distance to downtown and great finishes inside. Very quiet and peaceful. As an experienced Petoskeyite there not a better place for a couple. Wonderful owners . Eager to return to this spot.

Great View and Location

  • 5 of 5

Great place. The unit was clean and had a full kitchen. The view was spectacular, especially from the deck in the morning and evening. An easy walk into town to the bookstore and great dining. Pretty walks along the Little Traverse Wheelway and the Bear River right out the door of the unit!!! When we were considering the unit, I was concerned about the noise level from the parking lot across from the unit. This proved to be a non-issue. There was activity in the park and along the sidewalk/bike path, but it was very peaceful and quiet. The unit is set back from the street providing a nice buffer to the activity. We'll stay here again when we visit Petoskey.

A perfect location for a couple!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year in a row in this property, we love the location, with easy access to Petoskey's gaslight district for shopping and restuarants, great golf nearby and beautiful views of the bay. The owners show real pride of ownership with many recent upgrades that make the stay even more pleasant. Hope to be back next summer!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd year staying in the upstairs 1 BR unit. When we arrived we were surprised to see many upgrades - new cement driveway, completely remodeled kitchen, freshly painted, new bed. The updates were lovely making an already great apartment even better. Can't say enough about this rental - awesome location, fabulous deck, very clean, good amenities, just perfect for two. There are so many things to do in this area - great restaurants, golfing, bicycling, beaches, boating . . . it has it all.

Petoskey Getaway is a Charm

  • 5 of 5

This was the best vacation rental we have ever experienced, whether in Michigan, Florida, Maine or elsewhere. The photos and description are accurate in all respects. Certainly the view from the deck is as outstanding as depicted and the location of the rental in Petoskey is ideal. We could walk easily (and often) to the downtown area and along the Wheelway in both directions, which provided delightful exercise.

The apartment itself is very well designed and organized. The bedroom can be closed off and the bed is quite good. Lighting throughout is excellent. The bathroom is pleasant and functional, excellent shower, good cabinet space and towel bars. The kitchen is small but efficient and well stocked. Actually the entire place is efficient and doesn't seem particularly small. Lots of storage area, good chairs, good HDTV.

The area of Petoskey is splendid with lots of fine restaurants, take out places, two (!) independent bookstores, enticing shopping of all kinds. The town is also close to two other nice small towns, Charlevoix and Harbor Springs, and is not far from Mackinac Island. Lake Michigan is a constant wonder.

Highly recommended!
