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.

This is the second time we rented the property.

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleased with the location, view and amenities the first time we rented the property a couple years ago, that we rented it again.

We were not disappointed. The only difference was that this last time we rented in the fall and the pool / hot tub was closed.

I would give a 4 star rating and would rent it again.

Exactly as described!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for three nights the first week of October. We were thrilled with the view and sitting out on the balcony drinking coffee. The weather did not cooperate but we loved where we were. For us, it was perfect.

Wow, Beautiful Place!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed one night and had a fabulous time. The only thing disappointing was we didn't have enough time! We were there for a pickleball tournament. We did not have time to enjoy the pool or the bonfire pit. We did walk down the beautiful beach and dangled our feet in the hottub.

We highly recommend this property, the location was perfect and had great communication with the owner, very easy to work with!

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.

Wonderful View

  • 5 of 5

The owners were very available to questions, etc. before arrival and accommodating to early check in, late check out requests. The property itself was perfect for 2 couples and 2 kids (under 5). The view was great and the pool and beach area was perfect for the kiddos. Overall the condo was very comfortable and easy to get to. it's on the second floor but only about 10 stairs to get up and the entrance is right at the top of the stairs so it's not far to walk. It's a little further away from downtown than I'd hoped (between 10 and 15 minutes) but it was still a great place to stay. We'd definitely go back. Thanks Dawn!

Beautiful view of the Grand Traverse Bay

  • 5 of 5

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.

Grand Traverse Resort
Car: recommended

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.
