Space for two in tidy owner-occupied home. 2.5 miles to downtown TC and just a few hundred yards to beach on East Grand Traverse Bay. Few frills but rates are the best in town!
Great location for a visit to the National Cherry Festival, the Traverse City Film Festival, a ski trip, motorcycle tour or weekend stay. Walking distance to Keith J. Charters State Park beach. TART trail is less than 1/4 mile away and provides miles of biking/walking/jogging and an easy trip to TC, Acme and beyond.
Leelanau and Old Mission peninsulas (and their respective wineries) are nearby; Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and Crystal Mountain resort are about 45 minutes away.
Bedroom is private but we have to share the rest of the house. I will provide clean linens and a cat to pet! Quiet backyard with patio, grill, lawn chairs and a firebowl.
If you arrive on two wheels you get free parking in the "Garage Mahal" and use of any tools you need during your stay. If needed, I have several great roads and routes for you to (email hidden)ips from an hour to all day.
You will be free to come and go as you please during your stay. I won't provide the entertainment but will be happy to tell you where to go for eats, drinks and good times. Depending on the week I may have a few goodies to snack on in the cupboards or refrigerator but you should plan to be on your own for food. Light breakfast items available.
Residential neighborhood is nice for walking, grocery store is one mile away. There's even a playground and dirt alleys to explore. Attractions and restaurants aplenty just to the east along M31/M72; Reffit Nature Preserve is 1/4 mile walk away.
If you want to leave the driving to someone else the Bay Area Transportation Authority (BATA) offers many routes connecting Traverse City, Suttons Bay, Glen Arbor, Interlochen, Kingsley and Williamsburg.
I don't have cable TV or Internet access (I'm not a caveman, it's just that I work with computers all day long and don't need to come home and spend MORE time on a computer).
Dave and his cat Sally Mae O'Malley were the perfect hosts. Dave's place is a quick drive to downtown Traverse City or wineries in Old Mission Peninsula. The house is clean and quiet, and coupled with Sally's friendly welcome and Dave's wicked sense of humor it made for a perfect stay!
David was a fantastic host! My boyfriend and I stayed two nights. The house is very clean and really well decorated. Sally (David's cat) is very friendly--she even cuddled with us while we watched a movie out of David's own DVD collection. Not only did he provide us with a dining guide and suggestions on sites in T.C., but he also shared some of his homemade carrot cake and waffles with us (yum!!!). The location is perfect--5-10 min drive to downtown, 10-15 min drive to wineries, and 40 min drive to the Sleeping Bear Dunes. We loved our stay and hope to come back soon!
David was a wonderful Host in every regard.
Responsive, communicative, Very friendly- flexible with check-in times, all in all, he was a pleasure to work with.
His Home is neat as a pin, Comfortable, Quiet, and is located in a
Great location relative to Downtown Traverse City.
David is the type of person, and is offering the kind of Rental, that makes airbnb a Fantastic experience.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
