The secluded location of this North Shore Inn condo – beachfront on Traverse City’s exclusive East Bay – makes it a crown-jewel destination. From your waterfront vantage point on Lake Michigan, watch sailboats and pleasure craft bob like bath toys. At North Shore Inn, you have a front row seat to the beauty of East Bay where you can enjoy the private beach, waterfront outdoor seating area, or take a dip in our refreshing pool.

Suite 308 is a third floor unit whose paint colors and wood accents create a breezy waterfront atmosphere. Comfortable furnishings in the living area, including a sofa sleeper, encourage naps or a movie night gathered around the flat screen TV.

The guest bedroom is on the main level, this queen bedroom has a flat screen television, dresser, and closet.

This condo has a fully equipped kitchen, with new appliances, that is great for preparing meals. There is a small dining area with seating for two and a breakfast nook area with additional seating for two.

The master bedroom gets top billing because of its private location on the upper level of the condo. A queen bed coaxes you into a contented night’s sleep. When you wake in the morning, first take in the spectacular view of East Bay, then make your way to the en-suite bathroom. This bedroom also enjoys a private terrace with breathtaking waterfront views, sitting area, and a large flat screen television.

North Shore Inn provides complimentary Wi-Fi service. There is also an onsite coin operated laundry facility for guest use.

Couples Off-Roading Weekend

Review by Stacey C.
It was a great place for couples or even families having 2 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms. The only problem was the shower head in the upstairs bathroom needs to be replaced.

Fun Getaway

It was a nice place to stay. We do feel that there could be some updates to the kitchen and showers. The shower in the master bedroom did not have much pressure. But it was clean and comfortable to stay. We had four adults and that was just the right amount in this condo. The view is fantastic.

Great condo for a weekend getaway

Review by Tara G.
We enjoyed this condo for a weekend getaway for a family of four. Condo is small so longer trip with a family of four may not be ideal. Water pressure in master shower is horrible. Wifi connection was not the best as my teenagers had schoolwork to do and kept getting booted off. Overall, condo was perfect for our getaway weekend. It’s in a great location and property management company was a pleasure to work with.

Hello Karen, thank you for the great review! Please feel free to contact us on your next visit back to Traverse City, we look forward to seeing you again. Sincerely, Scott

Cute place for great price (in the winter anyway :)).

This unit has been updated a bit nicer than the other listings in the same condo complex that I could tell. The kitchens on all of the units that I saw, including this one, are extremely dated. If you are sleeping 6, I would bring blow-up mattresses, or a pad, for the pull-out couch (unless they get a new mattress before you come - it's horrible!).

Girls weekend

Review by Lori F.
Everything was wonderful except the pull out couch, which should be replaced. If you are charging the price of 6 people to stay then there should be decent bedding for 6 people. You can feel all the springs which was very uncomfortable. The unit was clean and had everything else we needed. It was in a good location and the views are beautiful. Only other thing is the balcony needs a lot of work.

Manager Response:
Hello Lori, thank you for the review, its good to hear that everything was wonderful except for the pull out sofa. I will follow up with the owners to see about getting it replaced. October 21st. we are starting the lakeside renovation project that includes all new balconies, railing and siding, we are all very excited to see the new look, and look forward to having all of the guest experience the new North Shore Inn. Thank you, Scott

Absolutely lovely condo!

Review by Joyce L.
The decor, view, comfort and cleanliness welcomed us when we opened the door. What a perfect place for three girlfriends to celebrate their 70th Birthdays! I would highly suggest this condo complex for your next vacation. Located right on the beach on the East Bay. There is an elevator, large swimming pool, large terrace with all types of seating and beach chairs on the beach. And the staff was helpful and efficient. I will definitely come back on my next trip!

Family weekend away

Review by Kathy H.
So after driving 4 hrs in the first winter storm of the year we arrive at the property only to have the power go out! You would think this would be a very disconcerting disconcerning disconcerting way to start a holiday however it leandvitself to a wonderful candlelit evening. The next morning however once again the storm took its effect and we had no hot water. What I can say in all of the abstacles it didn’t take away from the wonderful relaxing “homey” vacation time away. So very comfortable and Scott at the front desk was amazing. Thank you thank you, we will be back.

Our Favorite Place on Earth!

Review by Jeffery H.
Our family has been coming to North Shore Inn every year for over 20 years. We look forward to the next year as soon as we leave! We realize things are different with the new management and were a little worried when we first arrived on July 7th but as the week went on we were relieved to see that, little by little, things were going to come around and be great again. We do have a few things that we think need attention: the cleaning was NOT GOOD. Our unit was never really cleaned the entire week. We had to track someone down every single day just to get kitchen towels, garbage emptied and a new bag, some days the beds weren't made and the bathrooms were not cleaned, even when we specifically asked for them to be. We pay alot of money to stay a full week and we expect things to be done so that we can fully enjoy our stay. Also, the pool was not heated as it usually is. The little kids didn't care but we older kids did! The balcony was never touched and had quite a bit of debris, cobwebs, dirt, etc... I had to clean it up before I could sit out there. Other than that, our stay was awesome and the guy who combed the beach every morning did a great job and was very nice. The front desk people are also very nice and helpful. We love North Shore, some things just need a little tweaking!

Manager Response:
Jeffery, Thank you for all of your positive feedback! We love hearing all about our repeat customers especially 20 years! Thats awesome and we enjoy getting to know everyone on a more personal basis. We also appreciate the not-so-good feedback as well so that when you return we can fix these few things for you, that way your next stay at North Shore Inn is that much more enjoyable for you and your family!! We look forward to next year when we get to see all of your smiling faces again! Thank you, Kristin Isit General Manager North Shore Inn

Had a great time

Review by Judy A.
Came to visit family and had a great time. Condo just the right size for what we needed and the beach was great. Only issue being the upper balcony door not being able to open and it not being fixed until our last night there. Would have loved to sit on the balcony and enjoy the sunset. Otherwise, everything was great. Already told several people it is a great place to stay.

Nice location

Review by Paula V.
This property has a beautiful view and was quite clean. It was smaller than anticipated but was okay for a night with 6 people. The only negative is the pull out couch. It definitely didn't feel like a bed, more like sleeping on a box spring. So I'd say the place sleeps 4 comfortably with the 2 bedrooms but I would not count the pull out couch as a sleeping surface.

Manager Response:
Thank you for your review. We will contact the condo owner and let them know about the condition of the sleeper sofa. We hope you enjoyed your stay otherwise, and we look forward to seeing you again! -North Shore Inn Management

Home away from Home

Review by Charles S.
We have stayed at the North Shore Inn multiple times per year for about 7 years. The two bedroom units fit us very well. Beautiful view of East Bay any time of year. Close to downtown Traverse City and a short drive to Elk Rapids. A quiet peaceful place with good support from the staff. We will keep coming here.
