West Bay Harbor Vacation Home

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Oct 4, 2014
House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 10 Sleeps

Our home is located in Leelanau County, just outside the city limits

of Traverse City. We are about 15 minutes from Cherry Capital Airport. The home is in a very private setting with lots of trees and wildlife yet a very nice view of Grand Traverse Bay and the Elmwood Township Harbor. It even comes with a fresh vegetable/herb garden for your enjoyment! The home is just under 3000 square feet with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. There is a queen hideabed in the lower level family room. We have a deck with seating area, overlooking our pond. There is also a patio at the pond with table and chairs. Great place to relax and feed the fish. We are about 1 mile north of the city limits.

Thank you so much for letting us use your home for our vacation. We had a wonderful time! We truly enjoyed our stay. Loved the balcony, and it turned out to be a surprisingly beautiful week. We even went on a day trip to the Mackinaw Bridge. Got to enjoy some of the wineries, really enjoyed Left Foot Charlies Winery. We're hoping next year we can do this again! Thank you again!

Wonderful weekend!!

  • 5 of 5
This property was a fantastic choice for a group of friends traveling into town for a wedding. It was a wonderful place to spend time with others. We were welcomed with a bottle of wine and suggestions for things to do around town. The property was clean and well taken care of. It is very close to town, shops, grocery stores, etc. I couldn't have asked for a better place to spend time with friends for a weekend!!

Plenty of room for a large family. Interior furnished with comfortable furniture, plenty of dining space, and all the electronic entertainment you would desire. A clean well kept home with a absolutely wonderful exterior. Relax and enjoy the shady spot by the fish pond stocked with large colorful Koi or enjoy outdoor games and activiities in the spacious yard; including horseshoes, valley ball, bad mitten, or the like. Can't wait until we return next year.

Not a good family place

  • 1 of 5
This property is cluttered with too many knick knacks!!! No room in any bathroom for your tolietries. Dangerous steps leading to backyard that provided one of my guests with 22 stitches in the lip at Munson Hospital. The hot water heater runs out of hot water after 2 showers. No dishwasher in kitchen.

Owner's Response: I would like to respond to the only negative review we have had in our 5 years of renting this home. I wish I could post the text messages received from this renter during their stay, saying what a "wonderful home" we have and the great time they had there. I do admit that we do not have a dishwasher however we have never received a complaint about it.  Everything was fine with this group and they enjoyed their stay until I questioned them about items missing from our home and how a large container of fish food was dumped into the pond (most likely by one of the children) and clogged the whole system. I withheld money from their deposit to cover the items that are missing, (which I would rather have the items back) and the cost to unplug the pond system. This negative feedback is a result of us trying to recover our cost. We have had many family reunions and gatherings in this home by renters and it is very family oriented. I feel terrible if someone did actually fall but our steps are just normal steps. As for the bathrooms, I'm baffled! There is counter space in all 3 bathrooms and the water heater is brand new and we have never run out of hot water. To sum things up, we have many repeat renters every summer and some since we started renting 5 years ago. I believe that speaks for itself.

Location

Activity and Interests

There are so many activities in the area. The Fourth of July, National Cherry

Festival (June 29-July 6, 2013), Interlochen Center for the Arts and the Traverse City Film Festival (July 30-August 4, 2013) are huge highlights

of the area. Charter fishing and scuba trips can be booked in the harbor right across the street. Historic Fishtown is a beautiful day trip along with the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes. There are two casino's within 25 miles. There are many antique shops and wineries close by and watersports galore! We send out a packet of information prior to arrival on local interests, current activities, maps, etc.

Notes:

  • The harbor is right across M-22 from us, along with the public beach. Cedar Lake is less than 1/2 mile away and great for inland fishing or waterskiing. You can even grab a couple of our fishing poles and try your luck at the elusive muskie. Less than 1/4 mile away is the TART Trail (Traverse Area Recreation Trail). This is a paved trail through the woods and over the streams, that runs for many miles. Hop on our bikes and take a beautiful ride through the woods of Leelanau County or a 10 minute ride into Traverse City. There are also many golf courses within the area. If you are into tennis, there are rackets available to play tennis. The home comes complete with linens and towels. The kitchen is complete with pans, dishes, coffee pot, microwave, stove etc. There is a washer and dryer for your use. We also have many movies and games available. There is wi-fi available for your laptop. There is a horseshoe pit off the lower level along with a firepit. There is a ping-pong table and darts in the rec room. This home is completely furnished and ready for you to move in and have all the conveniences of home. Our home does have central air conditioning if it gets too warm! We are 5 minutes from Munson Medical Center in case of an emergency! We ask that any smokers, please refrain from smoking in the home.
