Overview

About the property

Traverse City, Michigan

If you're seeking the perfect accommodations for your next trip to Traverse City, look no further than Schooner House. This delightful 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom home can comfortably sleep 9, boasts a massive deck looking out over its private backyard, and has an ideal location close to the marina, West End Beach, and Traverse City's many world-class restaurants! Few places can claim to be as beautiful as Northern Michigan - see for yourself while staying at Schooner House.

THE PROPERTY

With 4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, and enough sleeping arrangements for 9 guests throughout 1,800 square feet of tastefully appointed living space, this 2-level residence is the perfect size and layout for families traveling together. The Schooner House is actually a charming farm house that was originally built in 1900, described by previous guests as roomy, cute, kid-friendly, homey, and private. You'll find the home's interior decorated in a nautical beach cottage theme, complete with all new drywall and stocked with all the amenities you need to be as relaxed as possible during your stay, including window air conditioning in the bedrooms, nice linens, wireless internet access and cable TV for your entertainment, and a living room with plenty of space for the entire family. Sleeping arrangements include 3 queen-sized beds, 2 of which are upstairs and 1 downstairs, 2 twin-sized beds on the upper level, an air mattress for extra guests, and a pack-n-play for little ones. A separate kitchen and dining area come equipped with all the necessary supplies for delicious home-cooked meals and fun family dinners. Sip your morning coffee on the front porch or outside on the expansive back deck, which offers deck chairs, chaise lounges, a 4-person patio table, and a gas grill. The backyard is quite large and very private, ideal for simply enjoying the spring blossoms or plucking fruit from the lovely apple tree in the fall. You can sit on the deck and watch rabbits munch apples in the yard - the kids will love having a front-row seat for wildlife viewing! There's a fire pit in the backyard as well, where you can roast some tasty s'mores and tell stories after the sun goes down.

THE LOCATION

Located just outside the downtown area of Traverse City only 1.5 miles away in Greilickville, you'll find that Schooner House is the perfect home base for all kinds of activities and area attractions. From here, you'll be walking distance from the marina and less than 1 mile from the West End Beach on West Bay. There are also several restaurants, Traverse Tall Ship sailing outings, and the Great Lakes Children's Museum all within minutes of this home. You'll love the fact that you can hop on the nearby TART bike trail and cycle right into town without being in traffic! After a busy day of activities, walk just 2 minutes down the road to enjoy a drink outside on the water at Apache Trout and Grill - you won't find a more pleasant or convenient way to unwind!

Sailing on Grand Traverse Bay is a definite highlight in the area, and both Tall Ship Manitou and Sailing Yacht Scout offer wonderful options for getting out on the water. Schooner House is located 15 minutes away from Suttons Bay, 30 minutes from Leland, and 30 minutes from Sleeping Bear Dune National Lakeshore, which boasts stunning beaches, 500-foot-high dunes, and a multitude of hiking trails, certain to please even the most discerning outdoor enthusiasts. Traverse City is a real "foodie" town, complete with a large selection of excellent restaurants, dozens of wineries, and microbreweries, many of which are within a mile from the property. You'll also have easy access to Traverse City's summer festivals, beaches, shopping, and more. Whether this is your first trip to Traverse City or the continuation of an annual tradition, Schooner House will quickly become a place you'll want to return to year after year - you may never want to leave!

Womens Weekend!

  • 4 of 5

The Schooner's house was a nice place to stay.

We had lots of room inside the house.

Only issue was the parking.

Only room for 3 cars!

We all had fun, that was the main thing!

The property was well kept.

  • 5 of 5

We found the house to be well kept. Bedding was good, bathrooms roomy, plenty of room to spread out. The landscaping could use some attention. Great location for wine touring on the peninsula.
