About Dawn VanVolkinburg

Both my husband and I grew up near Grand Rapids, MI where we currently live. If we could we would live in Traverse City now but my husband works at a hospital in Grand Rapids and enjoys what he does so we just visit the area as often as we can!

Dawn VanVolkinburg purchased this condo in 2012

Why Dawn VanVolkinburg chose Northern Michigan

We bought this condo because we both love northern Michigan especially the Traverse City area and have been coming here for years. We plan to retire in the area. In the meantime, we enjoy down time at our beautiful condo on the East Bay. When we can't be at the condo we like to have others enjoy it.

What makes this condo unique

We fell in love with the area because how beautiful the area is. Lake Michigan, Sleeping Bear Dunes, Torch Lake, Mission Point and so many other beautiful things to see and enjoy! What kept us coming back is amidst all the beauty are wonderful welcoming people.

Fantastic View!

  • 5 of 5

Rented this property for a ladies weekend. Super cute beachy decor with just enough room for the 6 of us. With the pool being so close to the lake, the overall view was fantastic. We had a great time and would book this property again.

This is our fourth year staying at Dawn's Retreat. We love it. The condo is always clean and comfortable. We even got to enjoy the pool and hot tub between rain storms.

dream away

  • 4 of 5

My stay was wonderful. Woke up each morning with that great view of the water, Had three weeks of good weather. And the sunsets!!!!!!!

Dawn might think about replacing the mattress in the master bedroom.

Counter top was crowded,

.Otherwise perfect. Nice cleaning lady.In and out,good job.

Thought it might be noisy so close to the pool but it was fine.

Would highly recommend the condo.

Nice place, great property

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The pool and lake were fantastic. The pool bar was very convenient for some cocktails and lunch. The condo was small but very cozy, perfect size for our family. The only complaint we could possibly have was the bed was not very comfortable in the main bedroom, but that's just our opinion . Overall we loved our stay and will book with Dawn again.great place

Nice location. Great proximity to Traverse City.

  • 5 of 5

Nice Location. Well kept and clean. Great view of the bay and also overlooking the pool. We also liked the proximity to TC.

The owner responded quickly when we were looking for more towels.

We try to get up to the TC area at least once a year and have stayed at a number of places and would stay here again.

Thanks for a great weekend.

Called the 'Gold Coast' the Traverse City area is a beautiful place to relax, walk, bike, visit wineries and breweries, go shopping, in the winter you can enjoy the lights and cross country and downhill skiing, watching the waves on Lake Michigan, snow shoeing and snowmobiling. There are activities for kids, adults, singles and couples to enjoy. There are 25 wineries on Leelanau Peninsula and many more on Old Mission Peninsula. Traverse City is also close to Elk Rapids, Alden, Leland, and Suttons Bay, these are quaint towns that are a must visit spring through fall. Torch Lake is a must see! It is one of the world's most beautiful lakes and looks like the Caribbean Ocean! Another must see is Good Harbor Beach miles of soft sand and views of the Manitou Islands and Sleeping Bear Dunes. Sleeping Bear Dunes was rated the most beautiful place to visit in 2011. Charlevoix, Petoskey and Glenn Arbor are all within a 45 minute drive and are a must visit as well.
