The SpaceMy place is comfortable, casual, eclectic and welcoming. If posh is your preference please try a local hotel such as The Indigo - it's cool!! I am always refining and adding things for the comfort of my guests, such as a sound machine and new blinds for the bedroom, and a mechanical keyless lock for the front door. Access the Vasa trail from the backyard. We will be skiing and snow shoeing before you know it! Many options for road biking routes, kayaking on Grand Traverse Bay or area streams and inland lakes. Multiple locations to get on the North Country Trail in 20 minutes or less. If you want to earn your cumulative 100 mile badge this year, I am happy to transport you for backpacking. My place is so close to Traverse City - 10 minute drive - and all the things that make it on top ten lists: Old Mission and Leelanau Peninsula wineries, microbreweries, restaurants featuring local food, music venues and Sleeping Bear Dunes. Yet serenity of nature surrounds my place. Access 50 km of trails on the Vasa Pathways. Bike, hike, secluded beaches all near by, and enjoy Traverse City goings on - music, fun, micro breweries. Deck is fabulous for morning coffee, bird watching and moon rise. Please be mindful when you consider booking with me: I use environmentally friendly cleaning products, my outdoor space is a reflection of my natural surroundings. I protect our precious natural resources - fresh water especially - by refraining from using fertilizers, herbicides or irrigation. Since I heat with wood, the occasional bug surfaces, I have made peace with them as there is no harm to us humans. I do not provide bottled water as I do not believe in commodifying a basic human need - my well water from the tap is good! All bedding/towels are washed and line dried, so yes, occasionally a bug comes in with the laundry. I love to discuss sustainability with my guests - most enjoy learning about my recycling/composting/ footprint reducing lifestyle. I take my responsibility for environmental protection seriously, which is why I enjoy sharing my home and making less of a contribution to unnecessary consumption of our resources. Queen sized bed and firm mattress, bedroom is directly across hall from bath. Currently I am dedicating one bedroom to guests. If you have two couples in your group and are comfortable sharing a bathroom, I can accommodate you with special arrangements. Please note I do have a fearless feline Frodo. Guest AccessGuests have access to common space and all outdoor areas. Use of kitchen upon special request. Interaction with GuestsI am available to share info on my favorite spots and help you connect with whatever you may wish to do to enjoy your time here. I may be gardening or working on projects, or taking in great outdoors and local goings on. If I am working during the morning you will have breakfast prepared and waiting in the oven! English as Second/Foreign Language ESL/EFL lessons offered by veteran teacher. The NeighborhoodThe Vasa trail is a premier area for cross country skiing, snow shoeing, mountain biking and hiking. You have direct access from the back yard! I love how close I am to allow engaging in the community while still having my quiet space. Hardware, grocery and convenience stores minutes away. Grand Traverse Resort, micro brewery, restaurants all a short drive. Getting AroundBATA has a scheduled route very close to my home. You can ride your bike and load it on the bus to get to local and regional destinations. Cherry Capital Airport is just ten minutes away. Other Things to NoteI am on a path to reduce my footprint. I like the idea of opening my home to others and reducing our impact by making the most use of existing space and resources.

              When you decide to vacation at Peninsula Bay Resort Condominiums, you have chosen one of the highest quality condos on the beach of East Grand Traverse Bay. You’ll enjoy high end finishes like granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, a heated outdoor pool and hot tub/spa, plus 330 feet of beach. In our unit, A50, you will enjoy the top-most floor (the fifth floor), so you’ll have no “upstairs neighbors” or balcony overhangs. From the balcony, you have a great, angled view of East Grand Traverse Bay and the surrounding area. Unit A50 is the only unit in the entire building with the big, round architecturally significant window that is featured so prominently on the front of the building. This large window lets in lots of natural light and is the envy of the other units with the same floor plan. This 1500 square-foot unit features two bedrooms, and two bathrooms. The condo will sleep 7 people comfortably. The living room is spacious and open to the kitchen and dining area. There is a great view of the bay from the living room, with a door leading to the private balcony, as well as lots of light from all the windows. There is plenty of seating for your entire party, and you’ll find a gas fireplace and a large-screen flat panel TV. We didn’t skimp on the dining table, either. It will seat eight comfortably, and there are also 4 bar stools at the raised kitchen counter for casual eating or visiting with the cook in your group! The kitchen has stainless steel appliances. You’ll enjoy granite countertops, a dishwasher, microwave, gas range, and refrigerator. The kitchen is fully stocked with plates, glasses, flatware, pots, pans, coffee maker, utensils and kitchen linens. Just bring food and make your own delicious meals! Near the kitchen, tucked away in a closet, is a stackable washer and dryer available for your use during your stay. Your suite will be your home-away-from home while you’re here, and we want you to feel at home. You will not be disturbed by daily maid service; your suite will be clean and ready for you at check-in, and you’ll find a vacuum, broom and basic tidy-up supplies available to you during your stay. When you leave, just tidy up and we’ll give the suite a good scrubbing before the next guests. We don’t charge a cleaning fee if you leave the place clean when you leave. That saves you money, too. Help us keep our rates low by picking up after yourself. As a guest at Peninsula Bay, you’ll have access to 300’ of shoreline of East Grand Traverse Bay. The beach is sandy, and you can take long walks along the entire length of the East Bay beach. If the bay isn’t to your liking, you can also take advantage of the outdoor pool and spa area, complete with lounge chairs and tables. Your private balcony is nicely furnished and gives you a fine, angled view of the Bay. It’s the same water the units directly on the beach see, but you pay much less! Same amenities, but a great price! And you’re only steps away to enjoy the beach yourself! This condo is a non-smoking, no-pets unit. Come experience Peninsula Bay Resort for yourself, and we hope you’ll return again soon.
