About this listing
My home is located in an older, tree-lined, 'sidewalk' neighborhood that is very safe and quiet.
My house 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. Right around the corner within walking distance there is the neighborhood bakery, 2 bike shops (McClain Cycle and Brick Wheels), breakfast/lunch diner, 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.
The accommodations include a private room, comfy queen-sized bed, nice linens, cable TV, and wireless internet. Shared bath. Cozy space, but nice and clean. I will gladly provide breakfast or other special requests depending upon the guests' wishes/schedule. Weekday check-in times must be between 12:30 and 1:00, or after 5:30. Weekend check-ins can be very flexible depending on other guests.
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!
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 in the bathroom. Hang up wet towels. Leave dirty shoes at the door. Be kind to my plumbing. Keep me posted on comings and goings, and I will do the same. Most of all, explore the area and HAVE FUN!
My husband and I love staying with Gail!! She was so hospitable and had great suggestions on activities for us while we were visiting. The room was very neat and clean and we were there on a very hot weekend but the fan made the room a perfect temperature. We really enjoyed chatting with Gail in the morning and evenings! Her home is a very short distance from downtown and even shorter to the beach so it was perfect for biking around town. Next time we visit Traverse City we'll definitely want to stay with Gail!!!
Gail was an amazing host! The room/space was exactly as described. Comfortable, clean, and cute! The house is located just a few blocks from downtown so we were able to easily come and go from Cherry festival and the beach. It is located in a cute neighborhood. Gail made us a delicious breakfast on Saturday morning and gave us great ideas on how to spend our time in Traverse City. We had an amazing time. I would highly recommend staying at Gail's space!
The house is located 20 minutes of walking distance from downtown. It was very convinient for us, because we left our car at the house and explored the city by foot.
We had such a great time, my boyfriend and I. We went up for the cherry festival and Gail's place is a little over a mile from the heart of downtown. She was a great and helpful host. We forgot to pack a blanket to watch the fireworks and she helped us out. She even told us about some cool local beach spots.
This was a prefect place to stay for the Bayshore Marathon event. Within walking distance to the start line. Very comfortable, clean and and quiet. Gail was very accommodating, I could not have asked for more!
Gail was always there for me from a quick response to my inquiry right up to helping get my stuck vehicle out of the driveway from the city's snow plow from the snowfall the night before.
The house was cozy, the room and bath were clean and the sheets were soft. She had the good sense to honor my privacy yet be there for an interesting social discussion about her great city and her B&B experiences. .
Stayed at the Park Place the night before and I wish I stayed at Gail's place all weekend. Definitely next time.
Gail is a very accommodating and kind host. She lives in a cozy, little house located close to downtown and the Bay.
I highly recommend Gail and her welcoming place!
