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 (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.
The accommodations include a private room, comfy queen-sized bed, nice linens, cable TV, 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. 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!
Full access to your room, bath, living room, kitchen and back yard.
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. 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!
