Northern Michigan Condo Rental Photos and Description

Beautifully furnished two bedroom condo, just a block from the beach

Quiet, nicely appointed condo with two bedrooms and two and a half baths, is located on the second and third floors of the Bay Park condominium complex at 100 Hope Street in the heart of Traverse City. Just a short walk to the beaches, parks and hiking trails, and all of the fine shops, restaurants, and nightlife that Traverse City has to offer. The West Bay's beautiful sandy beaches are literally across the street. The condo is situated directly on the TART Trail system. ALL BRAND NEW APPLIANCES, CARPET and PAINT!

A dozen renowned wineries, vineyards, orchards and magnificent scenery are less than thirty minutes away, as are casinos, the Old Mission and Leelanau Peninsula. The famous Sleeping Bear Dunes and the picturesque fishing towns on Lake Michigan make a great half-day trip.

Don't miss the summer fun, the festivals, the fall colors, golf courses, and the Northern Michigan way of life!

Guestbook comments from the owner


I can't thank you enough for renting out your beautiful condo to us. It was perfect in so many ways. We felt so at home. Our granddaughter loved the playground, and we appreciated the proximity to downtown and all the activity there. It was so spacious, clean and quiet. The décor was amazing. I know that staying there contributed greatly to the memorable week we had. Thank you again.

Third consecutive year at this condo

  • 5 of 5

We came across this rental 3 years ago, and this October was our third straight year renting it. The location is perfect. We like the easy walk to everything in downtown Traverse City. The condo is always very clean and appropriately appointed. Quiet as well. 1.5 blocks to the bay and 0 blocks to a huge and fantastic park for the kids. Extremely close to either peninsula, especially Old Mission. Should we be fortunate enough to return next October, I will go straight here and once again not bother with a search. Our 4yo declared this year that she wanted to live there.

Wonderful long weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable and clean condo within walking distance to downtown and many other things to do. It is on the second floor so there are stairs going up to the condo and then a flight of stairs inside the condo to the second floor bedrooms & bathrooms (a half bath on the first floor off kitchen). It is beautifully furnished. Next time we are in Traverse City I'm hoping this will be available.

Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Great location within walking distance to downtown. The owner provided a very clean and comfortable home that was stocked with paper goods, cleaning supplies and all items needed for a home away from home. The two full bathrooms and a powder room were perfect for our group. When we return to Traverse City we hope this home is available.

Great location & atmosphere

  • 4 of 5

We were in Traverse City for our daughter's wedding and could not be more pleased with our choice of lodging. Although the weather was uncooperative for the beach, there is so much to do in Traverse City, we really didn't miss it (we live by a lake anyway). Loved eating at The Little Fleet (food trucks) just 3 blocks away and there's a great bar there as well where we gathered with family the first night. The condo is so well stocked, we didn't need anything but food, which is abundantly available quite close by. Another daughter, son-in-law and their 5 year old son stayed with us, and it was perfect not having him cooped up in a motel room! Awesome weekend!
