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 studio in 2014

Why Dawn VanVolkinburg chose Northern Michigan

We bought this suite along with the suite right next door because we have a condo in the same complex and just one floor down from these. We love the location, amenities and the view so much we decided to buy another! 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 studio 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. What is special about our place specifically is being close to everything but once you are at the condo you feel away from all the noise and busyness of the city.

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.

Recommend this cute, quaint condo

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and LOVED our view. The only reason we gave it 4 stars was because our blinds were broken, but the owners handled it quickly and professionally and made it perfect for our second night.

Perfect vacation spot

  • 4 of 5

This was our second time staying at this property. The sunset view off the balcony is breathtaking, location is close enough to everything but not so close that it's busy and the room is exactly what we needed. It is very nice to have the washer/dryer in the unit as well. Thanks for another awesome stay - we'll definitely be back!
