Interaction with Guests
We interact with guests upon check in and then let the guest make the choice of how much interaction they would like from there. We've had many guests just come and go as they like without much interaction but we've also sat around the campfire with guests and enjoyed that as well. The space is very private and separate but we are available if there is a need or concern.
Our neighborhood is not only pretty to look at but is quiet, relaxing and has a vacation like feel to it. You'll see boats headed down to the lake in the summer but traffic is never heavy. It is also very common to see joggers, bikers and people out walking their pets.
There is a bus system in down town Traverse City (BATA) although most people would drive their own car here or rent a car.
Other Things to Note
There are so many enjoyable things to do and see in the Traverse City area. We provide maps, restaurant brochures and an app for your smart phone for local information.
No smoking and no pets allowed so that all guests may enjoy staying in this apartment.
Our first experience trying airbnb, and what a fantastic way to start! Susan made herself available if we had questions about the area, where to go, what to see, but also gave us our privacy. Accommodations were simply lovely and we enjoyed having a pretty apartment space to call 'home' as we toured the Traverse City area. Only regret is that we couldn't stay longer!
Susan's place is large, comfortable and extremely well appointed. Our family of four had plenty of room. We even grilled on the deck despite the cold rainy weather.
The location is ideal. It has the feel of rural isolation but is just minutes from downtown Traverse City.
We highly recommend this place!
The listing was accurate and the space was very clean and worked out well for our purposes. Beds are firm but have a thick memory foam mattress pad that makes them comfortable. Apartment is top floor of house with private entrance from the spacious deck, and Susan was available and gracious but not intrusive. This space makes a great base camp for exploring and enjoying the leelanau peninsula.
We had a lovely time visiting Traverse City, Leelanau State Park, and Sleeping Bear Dunes. This location was in the heart of everything. In addition, Susan was very generous with great travel information that added to our vacation experience. There were several great features about our stay. We arrived to find a pie for us to enjoy. The room was wonderfully decorated. It was great to have access to a refrigerator, stove, dishes, and cookware in the kitchen. The setting was quiet and peaceful. The deck was amazing and you can grill out if you like. As an individual with two genetic disorders, it was imperative that there were no pets, perfumes, etc. as living with those things lands me in the hospital and are life-threatening. It was great to be able to stay in this location and not be put at risk. We are looking forward to coming back again and again. It's a great place to stay.
Both Susan and her husband made us feel right at home and were very helpful. The listing was spot on and if anything undersold the place. My wife and I were more than completely satisfied. I would highly recommend this rental.
We were initially concerned about it's distance from town but was very easy to find using GPS.
Here is a better walk through of the rental if you're interested: (website hidden)
The apartment is really lovely, we had a great three days here. Susan was very welcoming and extremely easy to communicate with. I would definitely stay here again.
About the Host, Susan
My family and I have enjoyed living in the Traverse City area for over 25 years. There are so many great activities we are able to do just minutes from our home. Since we are active outdoor people, we enjoy hiking, biking and golfing. There are several large size lakes within walking distance that we enjoy boating, fishing and canoeing on. In the winter months, we can either cross country ski right from our back yard or use the ski resorts that are within a short drive. Some of the less active past times we also enjoy are visiting all the great local restaurants and shopping in Traverse City. When we travel, we have greatly enjoyed going out west to the Nevada, Arizona and California area which we hope to be visiting again soon.
