Overview

Traverse City Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2BR, 1 BA spacious loft apartment. Family friendly, pets welcome.

The Flat is located above the fun French bistro, Foufou, in the heart of Traverse City, making it a fantastic home base for any of the fun festivals that happen throughout the year. A parking spot is provided in the lot across the street (a coup in the city!).

There are two bedrooms. One bedroom has a king sized bed. The second bedroom has two twin beds. There is a living area with a TV (dvd player), a dining area, which we have set for 4, but the table can extend to seat 12. The kitchen has a four burner electric stove, refrigerator and dishwasher. There is a coffee pot and a pantry stocked with the basics. The bathroom has a shower/bath and a full sized washer and dryer.

The apartment is clean, comfortable and an easy place to be. Dogs are welcome. We call this a loft because the bedroom walls to not reach to the (exposed) ceilings, so you can hear everything.

The apartment is accessed via the alley, in a separate entrance from the restaurant. It is private, well lit and secure. Guests find the space to be bigger than they expected. It is well furnished, yet sparse, which I think creates a sense of calm.

About Brooke Hazael-Massieux

We are Brooke & Guillaume Hazael-Massieux. We moved to Leelanau county in 2006 when we bought La Becasse, a French country restaurant in Burdickville. Like many before us, we fell for the region hard and fast! In 2012 we opened Bistro Foufou in Traverse City and at the same time leased the charming apartment above the restaurant.

Brooke Hazael-Massieux purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Brooke Hazael-Massieux chose Northern Michigan

The Flat, as we have taken to calling the space, is a fun loft apartment with an urban feel. It provides an excellent home base for Traverse City fun. We stayed here with our kids and puppy for a weekend last winter, and enjoyed being so close to everything. The entry is private, and the apartment is spacious. I can see also using the flat to host a small group if you are in town for a wedding. A parking space is included, which is a huge boon if you are driving. And, of course we are biased, but we think it would be fun to stay so close to a fun French bistro and would take advantage of eating in the restaurant or hanging out at the bar, and some nights simply getting food to go and enjoying the great apartment.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is easy to access, it's got great natural light, has the basics covered and is a fun way to vacation.

Amazing Location!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year staying here and we love it! It's just the perfect amount of space for our family of four (including our goldendoodle). The location cannot be beat and the new parking location is even better than previous years. We are already planning our next stay!

Excellent location, excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is one block off the main drag in Traverse City so you can't beat the location. The apartment is well kept, modern and comfortable with everything you need for a stay in the city. The w/d was great to have as we were halfway through our vacation and laundry was a must. There was also detergent, which was a pleasant surprise. Brooke was helpful without being overbearing. We had a problem with the Wi-Fi and they fixed it as soon as they could. Easy to work with and we would definitely stay there again.

The best location downtown Traverse City.

  • 5 of 5

My sisters & I have been visiting Traverse City for 10 years and this was the 3rd year we stayed at the Loft.

It has everything you need to enjoy your stay, plus being a half block from Front Street allows you to walk

everywhere in town. The only time you need a car is to visit other towns, the wineries or the grocery.

Thank you, Brooke & Guillaume, for the great accommodations. We had another wonderful trip to TC.

Perfect Location!

  • 4 of 5

We certainly recommend this loft. It is exactly as described, very clean and well appointed. Located in the middle of Traverse City, everything is within walking distance. We only used the car to visit wineries out on the peninsulas. Communication with the host was very good. We look forward to visiting again.

The only thing that prevents me from giving the 5th star is the noise; both the trucks and the seagulls. Obviously the hosts do not control either of these, and given the location in the city the noise probably should be expected. Still, be prepared; the banging trucks and screeching seagulls were literally a rude awakening.

Great Location and Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about the loft! We loved our time in Traverse City and loved staying at the loft. You couldn't have a better location so easy to walk to everything you needed. We have talked about making this trip a yearly event and staying at the loft. Also if you get a chance to have happy hour at Bistro Fou Fou you will love it, we went there both Friday and Saturday, so good! A great stay can't wait to go back next year!

Our apartment is located in downtown Traverse City, giving travelers the convenience of easy access to restaurants, movies (The State Theater!), shops, churches, banks, and grocery stores. And, this being Traverse City, the beach is a stone's throw away, easily accessed by foot or bike. Winery tours of Old Mission Peninsula and Leelanau County make for amazing day trips. The Traverse City Film Festival is an incredible event, for which this apartment is ideally situated. The Cherry Fest is a super family event that happens right outside the door.

There are nearby parks with playgrounds for kids. A short drive takes you to casinos, golf courses, and Interlochen Center for the Arts. And water! You can enjoy miles of beaches and with that many water-based activities.

Traverse City is delightful year round. It is a fabulous home base for fall color tours, as well as winter skiing. February is fun with the comedy fest and the beer & music festival. The nearby City Opera House has an amazing performance line-up year round, and you may be able to catch one of the National Writer Series conversations. In short, Traverse City has much to offer, and having a downtown home base puts you in the center of it.
