Traverse City, Grand Traverse County, Michigan
Welcome to our home! We just finished building it in June (2013). It is one of the coolest houses in Northwest Michigan. We live on the 2nd and 3rd floors with an amazing view of West Grand Traverse Bay. It is a passive and active solar home. We are 2 blocks west of downtown Traverse City - on West Bay across from the West End Beach. Our guest suite is on the first floor of our home AND it has a private entry off the front door. It includes a living room, bedroom (with a Queen size bed) and a full bath with a tub. The living area has a sofa bed (with a new memory foam mattress), TV with cable, WIFI, and a kitchenette. The kitchenette has a full size refrigerator, microwave, sink and a coffee maker.

My sisters and I couldn't have been happier with RockShop2. What a beautiful spot to spend our weekend. The owners went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and make our stay comfortable. We will definitely come back!

We were in Traverse City for both pleasure and work. The location of the room was excellent as it was walking distance to restaurants and activities downtown, and a short drive to those things we wanted to do. The accommodations were outstanding - we really...More
