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 103 is a one level ground floor condo, that has been recently remodeled, and the paint colors and wood accents create a breezy waterfront atmosphere. The door off the living room opens to a patio that has direct access to our private beach. Comfortable furnishings in the living area encourage naps or a movie night gathered around the flat screen TV. The living room also has a sofa sleeper.

The master bedroom gets top billing because of its gorgeous waterfront views. A queen bed coaxes you into a contented night’s sleep. When you wake in the morning, take in the spectacular view of East Bay. This bedroom also enjoys a full-size dresser, closet, and flat screen television.

The second bedroom has a queen bed, flat screen television, full-size dresser, and closet.

This condo has a fully equipped kitchen, with upgraded appliances, that is great for preparing meals. There is a small dining area with seating for four.

Guest Reviews of 103 north shore inn

Traverse City , MI

Great location and perfect for a February stay in the snow

Review by Thomas A.
It was basically as advertised and shown in the picture. We chose the ground floor for ease of access. There were minor issues that would tell me upkeep isn't spectacular. Carpet was vacuumed but was horribly dirty. There was spilled soda or juice on one end table that left it very sticky. I remain amazed at how many people keep using teflon pots and pans with deep gouges in the coating. Then there is the shower (why are showers/tubs always the worst?). It was not update, the base was overworn and looked dirty, the handles for the tub were leftovers from the 80's and the cold rotated the wrong way. I suppose overall we were glad to have a place to stay that let us sit on a couch or chairs and at a dining table to eat. It was mostly quiet, heating worked very well, and the bed was just about right in comfort for my wife and I. Oh, many of the electrical plugs are overworn and things just slip out.

Good Rental

Review by Mason K.
We rented a room at North Shore Inn for two days, and we enjoyed our time here. The whole place was fairly clean (a bit of hair + dirt under the glass tabletop, but nothing unsanitary) and the bed was comfortable. There was a slight noise issue - we could hear practically anyone talking out in the parking lot, but on the flipside of that you could hear the waves pretty well too.

Manager Response:
Hi Mason, thank you for your feedback, as we use it to help us improve. I am sorry to read the slight housekeeping issue, I can assure you that we take cleanliness very important. It is great that you got to spend your time listening to the waves while getting some relaxing in. I do hope that you will return in the future and let us provide you with a 5 star trip that you deserve. Please contact the office directly if there is anything we can do to help you! Kindly, Autumn Adams, NME Staff.

Good Stay

It was a nice, spacious stay for 2 couples. Accomodations were good for all 4 of us. Only negative was the dust on much of the kitchen utensils or appliances.

A couple of things need addressing

Unit 103 is very dark. Lamps need stronger bulbs and one more lamp in LR. Bathroom dark also. Mildew on Bathroom ceiling needs addressing. Light fixture over table has a broken bulb receptacle. We bought lights to fit as manager had no bulbs to fit. Handhold/Grab bar at tub would be great. Scary getting out of tub for old people like me. Great kitchen. Beds comfy. This is our fifth year (first in this unit) and we will be back next year.

Hello Judith, Thank you for the review, we really appreciate the repeat business and look forward to your return. Not sure why you had to buy a bulb as we stock every kind of bulb for building? We are pleased to hear the beds were comfy for you and that the kitchen worked out great. Please feel free to gives us a call to schedule your next visit. Sincerely, Scott

Perfect for our family vacation

Review by Kirsta T.
We absolutely love North Shore Inn. Pool, beach access, close to downtown TC, clean and friendly. I'd love to see a dock put in for the kiddos to be able to jump off into the water, but it's a perfect place for our family vacation.

October Getaway

Review by Bob S.
We were very happy with our rental experience. I do wish some of the owners would update their rooms. In one of our rooms the chair was stained, and the place just needed an overall update. Also, I realize I was there in the fall, but I wish the beach would be cleaned. All up and down the beach the other hotels were cleaning their beaches daily.

Nice escape

Review by John M.
Nice location right on Grand Traverse Bay. Condo unit was clean and well kept. Front desk staff seemed a little occupied and not super welcoming, otherwise excellent experience.
