I instantly fell in love with Traverse City and am already planning a return trip soon!

Traverse City is one of northern Michigan’s best lake town retreats.


We stayed in the Tower in a King Bay View Room which features newly renovated and spacious rooms. With a design theme of “relaxed luxury,” guests will feel right at home during their stay.


Located on the 16thfloor of the Tower, Aerie Restaurant & Lounge offers fine dining with sweeping views of the hotel’s property and the bay. We started our first night in Traverse City with a cocktail at Aerie Lounge.


The resort features numerous indoor and outdoor swimming pools, an indoor water playground, a hot tub, three championship golf courses, a Golf Academy, a 100,000 square-foot Fitness and Tennis Center, five indoor and four outdoor tennis courts, a private beach club with beach access, watercraft rental and winter rental equipment (snowshoes and cross-country skis).

Dinner and dessert at Bourbons 72

We had a delicious three-course dinner, consisting of a creamy Maine Lobster Bisque, filets cooked to perfection and finishing the meal with a yummy cheesecake.

Winter is much quieter as the lake freezes and the sandy coastlines mix with snow, summer brings a bustling scene that gives effervescence to the lake town, while autumn and spring paint the landscape with vibrant colors.
