My home is 3 blocks from the nearest beach, and a 20-25 minute walk to downtown Traverse City, West End Beach, the Open Space, and Clinch Park Marina. My home is located in an older, tree-lined, 'sidewalk' neighborhood that is very safe and quiet. The Cherry Capital Airport is a 10 minute drive (or $12 cab fare). Weekday check-in times must be between 12:45 and 1:15, or after 5:30. Weekend check-ins can be very flexible depending on other guests.

The space

The accommodations include a private room, comfy queen-sized bed, nice linens, SmartTV with Netflix and SlingTV, desk and chair, and wireless internet. Shared bath with host. Cozy space, but nice and clean. I will gladly provide breakfast or other special requests depending upon the guests' wishes/schedule. Beverages and snacks are available 24/7. Weekday check-in times must be between 12:45 and 1:15, or after 5:15. Weekend check-in is 3:00 unless otherwise arranged ahead of time.

My home is located in an older, tree-lined, 'sidewalk' neighborhood that is very safe and quiet. Right around the corner within walking distance there is the neighborhood bakery, 2 bike shops (McClain Cycle and Brick Wheels), breakfast/lunch diner (Round's), grocery store, wine shop, gourmet pizza, and a brew pub. The Cherry Capital Airport is a 10 minute drive (or a $12 cab fare).

Having lived in TC for 30 years, I would be happy to recommend restaurants, fishing charters, wineries, golf courses and other entertainment during your stay.

My goal is to provide affordable options to vacationers and travelers. The resorts and hotels in this area can exhaust the travel budget in one night. Airbnb also affords me the opportunity to meet wonderful people from other parts of the world, and provide my guests with a home away from home, rather than an impersonal hotel room. Hosting Airbnb guests in my home has given me a chance to meet very interesting people who would not have otherwise crossed my path. I look forward to hosting many, many more!

Guest access

Full access to your room, shared bath, living room, kitchen, back yard, and parking in the driveway.

Interaction with guests

I greet all of my guests at the door. We briefly discuss house rules, parking, internet password, breakfast, schedules, etc. We touch on the purpose/goals of their trip and see if they need any maps or directions. After the initial visit, I generally interact with guests only as much as they like. I'm always available by phone or text if they have any questions throughout their visit.

I'm pretty laid back - I don't have too many rules - just the usual common sense things. Lock the door. Clean up after yourself. Hang up wet towels in the bathroom. Leave dirty shoes at the door. Most of all, explore the area and HAVE FUN!

Gail took great care of us. Her house was very clean and she provided us with all the accommodations we needed. We had a time crunch with check in due to a dinner reservation and she met us and got us in very quickly. She had everything we needed and even made us breakfast. Her house is close to restaurants and bars. I highly recommend staying with Gail.

We enjoyed our stay with Gail. The breakfast she provided each morning was great. Her home was clean and our room was the perfect size for my husband and I. Her home is a 15 minute walk to Downtown Traverse City and many of the local beaches are even closer. We would recommend Gail's house and hope to book with her again next time we travel to Traverse City.

Gail was a great host and we couldn't have asked for anyone better. She went above and beyond what we expected. The entire house was really clean, the fridge was always stocked with food and drinks, breakfast was made for us, and TV/Netflix was in our bedroom. I highly recommend anyone visiting Traverse City to stay here.

Great experience! Gail is a great host. She communicated with us beforehand to coordinate logistics for an easy arrival and offered to buy groceries for breakfast. She ended up giving us a bag of cherries for the road the next day. Would say again if back up in Northern Michigan.

Had a pleasant stay with Gail! Everything was really clean, accessible, and Gail was very accommodating. The location is perfect and only a few minutes bike ride to downtown and Gail has recommendations for everything/anything you need! Will definitely stay again!

I love meeting new people - living alone can get a bit boring sometimes, so I look forward to hosting interesting people and promoting this beautiful area!
