About Billie Bliss

Hello! I am Billie Bliss, the owner and property manager of Traverse City Creekside Cabins. I am a wife and mother to 3 young children.

This have been a family business since we got our start in the winter of 2010. Purchased by my father, I ran this business until my husband and I recently purchased the cabins from him and decided to become business owners ourselves! I have enjoyed being the property manager for Traverse City Cottages these past few years and I look forward to being the owner and property manager for Traverse City Creekside Cabins for years to come!

Billie Bliss purchased this house in 2010

Why Billie Bliss chose Northern Michigan

Our cabins are special because they give the feel of being secluded, since they are backed up to state land, yet they are close to everything Traverse City has to offer sine they are only a couple of miles to downtown! The cabins are a 1/2 block from the State Park Beach, a 1/2 block from the TART Trail, and just a short car ride to many wineries, restaurants, and shops! Not to mention the beautiful creek that runs through the front yard! You surely will enjoy your stay at the Traverse City Creekside Cabins! Property #s: #395216 (3 Bedroom Cabin), #317515 (2 Bedroom with Loft Cabin), and #3003052 (1 Bedroom Cabin).

Beautiful scenic lot in the middle of everything

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Billie's cabin was great! It borders against state park property in the back, and despite being close to a main through-fare, it feels like you're in the middle of the woods. West Bay is a 5 minute walk, downtown is easy biking distance. The cabin itself was clean and comfortable for 2 couples and a few friends that were willing to sleep in the bunk room.
