Studio with mini kitchenette in "The Shores" steps to the beach
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 Williamsburg
We bought this suite along with the one next door because we have a condo in the same complex and just one floor down from these. We love the location 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.

Great location, view, room, and budget
We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful condo. Perfect for a romantic couple's getaway away from the kids. Room was very well clean and very modern, well very clean except for the tub, but that was our only complaint (a minor complaint), and the rest of the room was so nice it didn't bother us. The room and bed were both comfortable. Plenty of room to set our weekend bags. Plenty of storage in the bathroom for our bath belongings. Room was definitely not too small for us, but I think any more than two in the condo would be a tough squeeze. Would definitely stay again! Hopefully next time, in the summer so we can enjoy the lake and pool. Thanks for a great stay!!
Go to bed and wake up to wonderful views of the East Ba
A small but highly efficient studio. Great location, great view. Clean with all the amenities you need.
Very clean. Beautiful view. I would definitely stay here again or recommend it to a friend
Updated, clean, very well taken care of.
Beautiful location and view on the lake! Pool and hot tub next to the beach too!
The inside is very nicely decorated and perfect for two adults. It has a mini fridge and washer/dryer too. One thing that we didn’t like: On Friday night and Saturday morning, we could hear the lady next door speaking on her phone. We figured out that there is a door behind the washer and dryer that connects/leads to the place next door. When I stood in that area, I could hear the phone conversation clearly (lady was a loud talker). It was not as bad once I moved away, but we could still hear it through that door from our room. Fortunately, it was quiet other than those two times that was maybe 5-10 minutes each. We could not get the coffee machine to work, so that was a minor bummer since we enjoy a cup of coffee in the mornings. For the people who like casino’s, turtle creek is a straight shot and only a four mile drive. Overall, it is a nice place to visit and stay.
Thank you for staying with us. We appreciate your kind words and constructive feedback. We did have another guest two weeks ago tell us about the noise from the other unit which seems to be a recent occurrence due to that unit having new owners and the new owners rent it out. We addressed this issue last week with our contractor putting in noise canceling material over that door.
I’m sorry you had issues with the coffee maker we too like our coffee in the morning which is why we provide the Keurig and Kcups. I wish you would have contacted us about the issue as we would have remedied it for you right away. We had another person contact us about the coffee maker we went out and bought a new one only to then find that they weren’t using it properly. If it continues to be an issue we will replace it with one that is more user friendly.
We hope you give us another opportunity to make your stay 5 stars! Please do contact us at your convenience.
Thank you again for your feedback!
Condo was just as advertised!
Clean, great location, plenty of room and the mini kitchen (that is well stocked) is a plus! Quick answers from the owners.
Cute little unit
Very affordable and cute. Nice view.
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.
