Our place is on Old Mission Peninsula, 4.5 miles to downtown, and 6 miles to airport. There is access and beach use on West Bay across Peninsula Drive.
There are two upstairs bedrooms adjacent to each other and a full bath.
Bedroom 1 has a double bed and sliding door out to a deck overlooking the back yard. There is a door to the room which makes it fully private.
Bedroom 2 is a large, open area that does not close off with any door. It has a deck overlooking the front yard and the bay.
Each room can accomodate 2 persons. For families or close friends, both rooms would be perfect. We will not make the open room available to anyone who is not accompanied by friends or family. In other words, if you are 2 people renting the private room, we will not rent out the other room during your stay. Only you will have option for use of that room if you have additional members in your party- up to four people total.
We have lived here since 1979. We are very familiar with Traverse City, Old Mission Peninsula, and Leelanau County. We will have maps, brochures and magazines about all the things to do and see here and will be happy to answer questions or make recommendations if guests so desire.
Yes, we do have our own pets.
No, guests may not bring dogs or other pets.
The guest rooms are in separate part of our home. We want to keep them free of pet hair and dander for guests and also do not want chance of pet accidents.
Sorry! There are several pet friendly options in Traverse City at both
airbnb's and hotels if you need any suggestions, we're happy to help.
Not quite retired, but married 39 years to Laurie who loves to travel and plan our trips. We live in a picturesque, resort area- Traverse City, Michigan, on Old Mission Peninsula facing sunsets over the shores of West Grand Traverse Bay. Living on and near the water has prompted our love all kinds of boating from motor to kayak to sail. Any day on the water is a good day!
As guests we are out and about exploring not sitting inside watching tv.
As hosts, we will be happy to offer suggestions where to go to explore our beautiful neck of the woods, from the beaches of Lake Michigan and Sleeping Bear Dunes to the wineries of Leelanau County and Old Mission Peninsula, to the downtown of Traverse City with its pubs, breweries and shopping. There is much to see and do here.
