We found the North Shore Inn on the VRBO site, but it is also listed as a hotel elsewhere. We made our reservations by calling the Inn directly. We rented a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo for 4 nights for about the same price as a regular hotel room in the area. (There are also 1 bedroom 1 bath, 2 bedroom 1 bath.) Very clean, comfortable. We were on the 3rd floor (yes, there was an elevator) which contained a fully equipped kitchen, dining area, living room, bedroom and full bath. The stairs inside the unit led to the 4th floor to a huge bedroom and a large full bath. This Inn is on East Bay, had a very nice sandy beach, a large grassy area, a deck with tables and umbrellas, and an outdoor heated pool. My daughter, grandson and I fully enjoyed the North Shore Inn and will definitely stay there when in the Traverse City area again. Also check out the Traverse City Commons, which is located on the grounds of the completely renovated former State Hospital. Shops, food, bakery, wine-tasting and more.
