Traverse City is not only a top Michigan vacation destination
for out of state travelers, but also for Michigan natives
as well. Traverse City hotels and the various other lodgings have risen to that
occasion and here you'll find a lot of nice options
that take advantage of the beautiful scenery and the nearby
beaches along the Grand Traverse Bay.
Traverse city lodging is exemplified when it comes to the "got-it-all" Bayshore Resort. Rave reviews from past guests make mention of a return as soon as possible. This Victorian-style resort takes advantage of its beachside location on the Grand Traverse Bay. Rooms and suites have a focus on the view, with balconies that give you vistas out to the scenic shores, and corner suites offer fireplaces. There are also economic bay view and standard rooms. Within a stroll of downtown Traverse City and all its unique shops and dining experiences, you'll be perfectly located. The spacious indoor pool and whirlpool are both warm year-round. Here, you'll also find a fully outfitted fitness center, and there is a nice game room for recreational activities. With free airport shuttle and guest laundry, you'll have more time to enjoy the surrounding attractions instead of worrying about things on the side. Complimentary newspapers will keep you informed about the world, although at this gem of Traverse City hotels, you'll likely just want to keep blocking it out. Area wineries and casinos are a short drive away, as well as golf courses, and top ski resorts in the winter. Starting at around $70 per night, you can't go wrong here.
The Sugar Beach Resort Hotel also pulls in high marks from past guests. Starting at just $54, it's almost too good to be true. Most of the amenities reflect those of Bayshore, and they also have their own private 300 feet of sugar sand beach on the bay. Rooms have their own 27" flatscreen t.v.'s, and the hotel even has boat and wave runner rentals to get out on the water. Some rooms offer their own spas and the hotel's sister resort, the Grand Beach Resort offers all the like amenities. You are pretty much guaranteed to enjoy your stay at either of these Traverse City hotels. You can nab large suites to accommodate your family, or deluxe rooms for two, and even spacious standard rooms for those on business or looking for economy while still enjoying all these resorts have to offer.
For an extravagance in Traverse City vacation rentals, try the Antiquities Wellington Inn. This Neoclassical mansion has nine guest rooms and a two-bedroom carriage house. Private baths and wireless internet are just some of what you'll find in this beautiful estate. At $195 in the Summer, and $170 in the Winter, some might find it pricey, but all will find it simply amazing, and like many Traverse City vacation rentals, its location is close to the beach and the downtown attractions. Other Traverse City lodging in bed and breakfasts can be found at the Hall Creek B & B at $110-$125 per night, which offers a four-room romantic setting on a 200 acre creekside, wooded lot with a lake, and The Chateau Chantal, priced in-between the other two. It has 11 units and sits on the Old Mission Peninsula in a vineyard setting.
Traverse City vacation rentals come in different shapes and sizes, but all share the same thing, and that is an incredible place for any vacationing group. Traverse City lodging is a mix of full-service resorts, hotels and motels, condominium rentals, bed and breakfasts, and cottages. Year-round there are things to do here. It's simply the perfect place to vacation.
