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.

Ideal location, but could use a little freshening up.

  • 4 of 5

Layout and amenities were spot on! I could tell that this was well liked and used often. It was pretty clean and very comfortable--just needs a bit of refreshing to keep it's welcoming appearance.

Great condo!, Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

My Wife and I spent Oct 21-24 2016 here for our 25th wedding anniversary. Absolutely stunning area with this being part of the Grand Traverse Resort.

The Condo was as listed with all of the amenities you would need. Great coastal theme and being right on the Grand Traverse east bay the views are gorgeous!. There is so much to do that you need much more than a long weekend to enjoy it all. We will absolutely be back. Frank and Lori Jobak, China Michigan.

Beautiful view, and well equipped. But we came from Oregon, where views are plentiful.

  • 3 of 5

Probably the biggest drawback were the beds and heating/cooling situation. The beds were not queens, and the mattresses were not very comfortable. We read this in earlier reviews, but did not think it was something that would affect us. We are normal sized people, but all woke up with sore backs in the am. One bedroom controls what happens heat/cool wise in the other, which we all had to figure out how to make it work for the both rooms. Living and eating area was great, but could use another comfortable chair. I cannot imagine how 6 people could be comfortable in that area. Good for 4 though. Traverse City was beautiful and with amazing shops and dining spots. However, there was always a wait of about 45-1hr on almost every day for seating. Lake Michigan was okay, but gosh, maybe people don't get around enough to see what is really beautiful in this country. Sleeping Bear Dunes should not be missed though. Totally fabulous!!!! Also if there is a cleaning service....why do we have to have the dishes done and garbage taken out??? All in all, had a great time with family, but there are too many places, less crowded, and more beautiful to see.

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.

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.
