Had a good time but not a great fit for a family with small children

Pros: - The owners are very nice, helpful, and accomodating - The outdoor space is super cute and great for having a relaxing evening drink - The location is perfect, just a short 5 min walk to Front St. Cons: - The loft is not exactly family friendly. We brought our 10 month old baby and nap times were almost impossible as the floors are incredibly creaky and make a LOT of noise. Also, there are a ton of books everywhere which are perfect for little baby hands to pull down! - There are only TV’s in the bedrooms which makes it awkward when it’s a rainy day and all the family wants to do is hang out together and watch football. - While I appreciate the “loftiness” of this loft, it wasn’t very homey and it was hard for our family as everything was very spaced out, the kitchen island was super long, and there’s just a lot of valuable unused space in my opinion

5/5 Excellent

Very unique setting in a great location!

We absolutely loved our stay at the loft! It is so unique and spacious. We took full advantage of the space and would have loved to stay longer. Matt and Victoria were great to work with and the setting was fantastic. Downtown is a short few blocks, so the location couldn't have been better. The outdoor space is beautiful and inviting. I have already told lots of friends and family about our stay. I would definitely recommend it and hope to be back next summer!

5/5 Excellent


Great location, amazing amenities! Victoria was outstanding to work with. We will definitely be back next time we are in Traverse City!

5/5 Excellent

We have rented The Loft for a couple years and love everything about it! The location is ideal!

The Loft is a gorgeous place to stay. It has the most amazing vibe and is a home away from home. Victoria & Matt are fantastic hosts and have definitely thought of everything.

5/5 Excellent

Amazing Loft in Downtown Traverse City

We had a wonderful stay at this unique renovated loft in downtown TC! The design and attention to detail are obvious the moment you enter the property. The fixtures and furnishings are all very high end. The art work and books throughout the loft enhance the cool asthetic. The beds were very comfortable. The gym/ yoga studio in the basement were an added bonus. We enjoyed being walking distance to the downtown TC restaurants and shops but feeling a world away after walking through the courtyard gates of the property. The owners were very accomodating and attentive. We left behind a couple of clothing items which they promptly packaged and sent to our home. We definitely look forward to staying here again when we return to Traverse City.
