About this listing

A creative Traverse City home with a cheerful and relaxed vibe fully stocked with all the amenities of home.

Centrally located only 1 mile to Downtown Traverse City, Grand Traverse Commons, beaches, hiking spots and more. Vintage cruiser bikes included!

Includes 3 bedrooms, with plush king and queen beds, 1 full bathroom, and a fully stocked newly remodeled kitchen.

The perfect home for a laid back group of friends, couples or a family to stay with all the comforts of being at home.

The space

Welcome to the SoFo Place. My home and your home away from home. It's decorated with photography, art, books and treasures from my adventures around this world: mid-century modern, with full passport Americana.

The newly remodeled kitchen in icy gray and white tones has brand new appliances and is stocked with anything your group may need: dining for 8+, pots, pans, storage containers, glassware, coffee pot, electric kettle and more.

All linens you could need are prepped for you, too: bedding, bath towels, beach towels, kitchen towels and extra blankets.

The living space includes a down-stuffed pull out sofa, stacks of books and games, and extra seating. The tv includes Apple TV with access to Netflix, HBO and iTunes. You can also use this to stream music or movies through AirPlay on your iPhone or Mac as well. It does not have cable or local tv.

The gym includes a new treadmill, free weights, bench and space for yoga.

The garage is stocked with bikes & locks, helmets, sporting equipment, coolers, beach chairs, basic tools and anything else you could need to enjoy your time in Northern Michigan.

Marta User ProfileMarta is a superhost.

I'm a bicycle hoarder, tech lady, community activist and part-time wanderer. I travel light and fall hard for every place I visit.

If you're staying in my home, I hope you love it. The space is a complete reflection of my life, style, and travels. Northern Michigan is a piece of paradise that is rare to find, and easy to love. I dig sharing it with my guests.
