About this listing

The space

This is a perfect spot for 2 adults to explore the Traverse City area then come home to relax in a peaceful country setting. There is a large elevated outdoor deck with a gas BBQ(available May-October) to enjoy the outdoors while dining. Enjoy a quite and peaceful sleep.

Large, private, non-smoking, studio (400 square feet) above a detached garage. Access to the apartment requires going up one flight of stairs. Queen size bed, living room area, kitchen with stovetop (no oven), refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, bathroom with shower, large deck (200 square feet) with gas BBQ(available May-October), black out shades, WiFi, great views, air conditioning.

Expect peace and quiet during your stay. Feed the goats, have a romantic dinner in the 125 year old barn, or walk thru the fields. Downtown Traverse City is only 7 miles away and takes less than 15 minutes to get to by car.
The homes in the area are on one or more acres. Our gentleman farm is on 10 acres that you are free to explore. Pick seasonal fruits and vegetables for your dinner or a picnic lunch from our garden. Check out the small vineyard or hops growing by the barn. Explore the perennial flower garden.

Guests have access to the apartment, barn, vegetable garden, and the entire yard. A fire pit with unlimited firewood is also available for your enjoyment. In the winter we provide snowshoes and sleds.

Our home is on the same property so we will see our guests during their stay. The apartment is detached and approximately 100 feet from our house. We are fairly busy during the summer but spend a lot of time outside working in the gardens.

After growing up in a big city, we really enjoy the peaceful setting that is so close to town.
We are located 6.75 miles from the finish line for the VASA cross country ski race and the ICEMAN Commeth bike race. For downhill skiing we are 30 miles from Crystal Mountain. The Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is also about 36 miles away.

There is not any convenient public transportation near our rental unit.

Other things to note

During the snowy months, you will probably need a car with all wheel drive or front wheel drive with snow tires to navigate the roads in the area and the small hill leading up to our driveway. Also, the gas BBQ is only available May-October.

Marco and Joni's property is gorgeous! The private apartment made for a very relaxing and peaceful getaway, within an easy drive to Traverse City and surrounding areas. Marco gave us some great recommendations for local restaurants, and they thoughtfully stocked the kitchen with coffee and snacks. I'd highly recommend their place.

If you want the perfect place to stay choose Marco and Joni's. We loved it. It is very, very clean and spacious. It has everything in it you could possibly need and then some. The decor is awesome and makes you feel at home. The grounds are wonderful and quiet. It seems out in the country, yet is close to so many things to do. We highly recommend their studio apartment. We would certainly go again!

What an amazing property with beautiful views!!! There is a garden that we picked fresh produce from each morning, goats, fire pit, and a beautiful barn all located on the property!! Joni and Marco are wonderful hosts, they made us feel welcome and comfortable our entire stay! Their property was in the perfect location for all the activities we had planned for our trip. We were about 15 minutes away from down town, which was perfect! My husband and I definitely recommend this property!!

Marco and Joni went exceedingly above and beyond in hospitality! They welcomed us and made us feel at home. Their property was gorgeous and the space was perfect for a getaway! They were great at communicating and always offered us information regarding Traverse City and the surrounding areas. We cannot say enough good things about our experience! We hope you find the same words to be true!

This Airbnb is greatly located just outside of Traverse City in 10 acres of land with a very convenient drive to downtown. We were pleasantly surprised with 5 goats on the property..added to the charm of country living. The apt. is upstairs with lots of privacy and its own porch looking out to the woods. We were supplied with everything we could have needed. Marco and Joni were full of area information. We were even offered bikes and beach towels. We will definitely visit again.

Marco And Joni User ProfileMarco And Joni is a superhost.

My wife grew up in Traverse City and moved to California to attend college. We met in college and after getting married and having 2 children, we decided to move to Traverse City in 1994 to raise our children in a beautiful area close to my wife's family. We have enjoyed living on our small farm for 20 years.
We both enjoy traveling and meeting many interesting people while we travel. We also have worked in the hospitality industry since 1980. Our experience will hopefully enhance your stay in Traverse City.
