Overview

About the property

A 2 bedroom 1 bath air conditioned bungalow in a quiet neighborhood 1 block from the highway (the home doesn't back up to parkway). The master bedroom has a queen size bed, 2 closets and a TV. The second bedroom is cozy with a twin over a full bunk bed. This room has one closet.

The living room and both bedrooms have wood floors that we just had refinished. The kitchen is fully stocked for cooking, including a full size electric stove and oven, refrigerator and dishwasher. In addition we have a gas grill in the back. The state park is about 1/4 mile away and has a sugar sand beach on East Bay.

Our bungalow will be a quiet retreat after a busy day visiting the beautiful Grand Traverse Area.

About Donna

I graduated from Traverse City High School as did our children. My husband attended the Maritime Academy at NMC and is a Chief Engineer who sails on a 1000 ft. freighter on the Great Lakes. I am a RN at Munson Medical Center. In the winter I like to play hockey, curl, xc-ski and snow shoe. In the summer we enjoy mushrooming, hiking, and relaxing at our cottage. My husband enjoys fishing of any kind, winter or summer.

Donna purchased this bungalow in 2014

Why Donna chose Northern Michigan

We recently bought and are updating this home for your comfort.

What makes this bungalow unique

This home is uniquely situated to give you quick easy access to all the area amenities, yet is in a quiet neighborhood. We offer a couple or small family the chance to spread out and have some space while relaxing between festival activities.

Perfect location!!

Loved! Had everything we needed and more. My husband, my toddler and I were perfectly comfortable. The playground wasn't perfect. We went three times each day!!

Owner's Response: I'm really glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for saying it had everything you needed and more because the owners (Donna and Al) took time to think of what they would want and need when away from home and took that into consideration with the rental. I'm glad to hear it paid off because they truly want everyone to enjoy their stay! I also assume you mean that the playground WAS perfect because you went there so often. It's great having that option within walking distance especially with kids. It's one of my daughter's favorite stops when we visit her grandparents that live in the neighborhood. I hope your Bayshore race went well and you will come stay again for that or another visit to Traverse City! ~Colleen, Property Manager

Perfect for weekend getaway !

  • 5 of 5

So glad we found this bungalow in TC ! Now have a place to stay for all of our weekend visits! Easy to find ~ Great location ~ Clean with all the amenities one could need. We chose to eat out but the kitchen was impressively well equipped. Neighborhood was very quiet but so close to the beach and downtown. Renting this bungalow will not be a disappointment ! Thanks!

We had a perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

First off, Donna and her husband were very helpful to us with a situation to park my boat. They took the time to take a photo and measure the area to make sure I would have room to park. They definitely went above and beyond to help us.

The house was very nice. You could tell they did a lot of work to get it in excellent condition. It was perfect for my wife and son and I. Also Donna took the time to get back with me on many occasions when I had questions.

We will definitely choose this rental again on our next trip to Traverse City.

Perfect weekend getaway location and accommodations!

This bungalow in TC exceeded all of our expectations. Not only was it immaculate, it was well-stocked and comfortable for the four of us. We will definitely be back.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here! Three friends and I stayed here recently during our momcation. It was clean, comfortable and in a nice quiet neighborhood. Donna was great to communicate with and there were no crazy hidden fees. Thank you, Donna!

Traverse City is known as a top 5 foodie destination per Bon Appetite Magazine. There are many wonderful restaurants in the area known for their farm to table foods. Wine tours on both the Old Mission and Leelanau Peninsula are not to be missed. There are also many local brew pubs and distilleries in the area.

The Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes 30 miles away was voted one of the most scenic areas in the USA. Don't miss the dune climb and Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive.

Summer time includes The National Cherry Festival July 4 - 11 featuring a free air show over the bay by the USAF Thunderbirds this year. Traverse City Film Festival July 28-August 2.

Traverse Area Tart Trail is a short 3 blocks away. The bike path goes right downtown and is about a 15 minute ride and is often quicker then taking a vehicle.
