“A cross between a hotel and staying with family...Amazing!”

Reviewed 30 Apr 2014

Bay Town Suite is a cross between a hotel and staying with family. Jody and Norm's hospitality is One-of-a-kind and they truly provide guests with wonderful accommodations. The room was very comfortable and gets some great sunlight through the large windows and skylight. The location was perfect, quiet but, a short walk to a small park and downtown. I definitely recommend staying in Bay Town Suite to anyone and everyone!! Enjoy!

Response from the owner Thanks so much for your kind review. We really enjoyed getting to know you both and are excited you've decided to make Traverse City your home!

“Wonderful weekend visit in Traverse City!”

Reviewed 16 Mar 2014

Bay Town Suite was perfect for our weekend stay in Traverse City. Norm and Jody were very helpful in recommending restaurants and activities in the area. The location was great...close to everything! If the weather had been better, we could have walked to lots of restaurants and shops! We would certainly consider returning to Bay Town Suite...maybe next time in the Spring or Summer.

Response from the owner Thanks so much for choosing us for your stay. We sure hope to see you back! Take care!

“Perfect little get away accommodations close to everything Trave”

Reviewed 5 Feb 2014

Very nice guest suite. Comfortable, nicely decorated and very clean. Also great for the dogs as the yard is fenced. Not having to walk the dogs being a city person is a big bonus for a vacation!

Response from the owner Thanks Ginger! Hope all is going well with your house hunting adventures. Let us know where you decide to hang your hat.

“Comfortable and convenient”

Reviewed 5 Jan 2014

Nice comfortable place. Owners are really nice and helpful. The fireplace was nice to have as we stayed there in the winter. Quiet neighborhood and convenient.

Response from the owner Thanks so much for staying with us over the holidays. Best of luck to you both in the new year!

“Great Room! Better than pictures!”

Reviewed 13 Oct 2013

This was our first visit to Traverse. The neighborhood was nice and quiet, and the fenced backyard and porch were perfect for our dog. The owners were extremely friendly and accommodating. Please review the listing before staying, since it is a cross between a hotel room and a room rental, so amenities might be a little different (eg no shampoo in the shower), but there are also other "plusses" that you wouldn't get like access to a washer. Also, if privacy is very important to you, please note that this is a room connected to a house, and you will likely cross paths with owners/visitors several times. A great rental and we wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

Response from the owner Thank you for this gracious and clarifying review. We are a hybrid type stay and want to make sure our guests know what they are getting. Yzie misses Brody already!

“Great location to everything Traverse City has to offer.”

Reviewed 5 Oct 2013

Very nice suite. Close to everything Traverse City has to offer. I don't think you could find a better location. Pets are welcome, too. The apache Trout Grille was recommended by Jody and she was right on; what a great meal we had and the bay view was gorgeous. Enjoyed our stay.

Response from the owner Thanks so much for choosing Bay Town Suite. I hope we will see you again soon!

“It was a relaxing and enjoyable place to stay.”

Reviewed 2 Oct 2013

This was the first time we stayed at a home rental. The place was nice, clean and the owners made us feel very welcome. Jody had brochures about the area available and told us where the good places to go eat and do. That was very helpful. The location was close to downtown within walking distance. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Response from the owner Glad you enjoyed your weekend away! Thanks for choosing Bay Town Suite.

“Owners go above and beyond!”

Reviewed 22 Sep 2013

We were in Traverse City for my daughter's soccer tourney, and every motel, hotel in our price range (that would meet our standards of cleanliness) was booked, seeing how it was Fri-Sun in late Sept. We only needed lodging that was clean and spacious. This studio was great, even had a washer & dryer, for in between games. The accommodations were very clean and well thought out... The only thing is that you are definitely a guest in someone else's house...might be awkward. You share an entrance and mudroom in the back. But everything else was fabulous, clean, and the owner was so accommodating and friendly :)

Response from the owner Thanks Jenn for choosing to stay with us during your daughter's tournament. I'm so glad you guys won--it had to help make up for all the rain and cold. I hope to see you all again if your travels bring you back to TC!

“Close to everything.”

Reviewed 20 Sep 2013

We had a great time during our stay at Bay Town Suite. Jody was incredibly helpful and flexible throughout our stay. Provided excellent meal recommendations. The location is fantastic, a quick walk to downtown Traverse City, and close to the highways and both peninsulas.

Response from the owner Thanks much for choosing BTS for your weekend getaway.

“Fabulous place to stay”

Reviewed 22 Aug 2013

We travelled to Traverse City in august 2013 with our 7-year-old daughter and our dog and stayed at Bay Town Suite. The suite is large and comfortable, immaculate, very close to the beach and a moderate walk or short drive from downtown Traverse City. Jody and Norm are amazing hosts, making sure you have everything you need, including all the information about TC attractions and restaurants. Our daughter particularly enjoyed playing with their puppy Yzie and the evening fire and s'mores making was a highlight of the visit. Highly recommended!

Response from the owner Thanks so much for staying with us on your tour of Michigan! Yzie is missing Leya for sure. Tell her to have a great school year!
