... were warned not to attempt the hike to the water and back up the sand dunes, we now understand why. Documents say it is a steep 450 foot drop; it looks more like 4,500 foot drop. From the lookout area on top of the Dunes, people on the shore below look like ants.
We could spend weeks in this area, beautiful hikes and so much to take in. I am sure we will return!
Today, the 12th, we toured on up the western peninsula shore line of Lake Michigan ...
Sometimes in life things just fall into place when you are in the right place at the right time. That just happened to us. We are now the owners of our own little piece of Michigan.

... all the worrying I will be doing in the next week, and try to imagine a perfect sunset falling over a serene lake view. I don't have to do any imagining though. Nothing can compare to the annual family trip in up-north Michigan. Where the sun shines, campfires burn, and black bottom cupcakes fill our stomachs.
... were here was spent cleaning both the inside of the coach as well as the outside. It really needed it after all the "camping" we had done. We are now ready to explore the area which has crystal clear lakes to go kayaking, hiking trails along Lake Michigan, wineries to explore, and lots of cool little towns to discover.

Historical Traveler Reviews Parkshore Resort Traverse City
Love the Parkshore!
My fiance took me to this hotel the weekend he proposed. We had a king size suite. We had an awesome stay, with friendly service. It's just beautiful there, you can't go wrong. We will definitly go back again!
Il mio fidanzato mi ha portata in quest'hotel il weekend in cui ha deciso di chiedermi di sposarlo. Avevamo una suite con letto matrimoniale a due piazze. È stata un'esperienza favolosa e il personale era molto cordiale. Il posto è bellissimo, non vi pentirete di esserci andati. Noi ci torneremo sicuramente!

Our Family loved The ParkShore Resort
For twenty years we've taken our Daughters to TC as a "family getaway", during the Christmas Holiday. The majority of the time we stayed @ The Waterfront, sadly they've sold and will be converting to condos. The ParkShore was strongly recommended to us. We stayed from 12/26 thru 12/30 and couldn't have been more pleased. We had 2 rooms, both were comfortable and clean. They offer more than The Waterfront was able to provide, as far as amenities. The staff was helpful & courteous. I'm unable to mention anything negative about our stay @ The ParkShore Resort, our experience was very positive!
Great Stay at ParkShore Resort
We stayed two nights at the ParkShore Resort in Traverse City. When we arrived at check-in time we were told that our room was not ready because of a power outage. When we complained, the front desk personnel upgraded our room and made sure our new room was ready. While the weather was too cool to use the beachfront amenities, it looks like a great place to stay in the summer with a great beach, volleyball net, fire pit, jet skis, and deck. Our room was comfortable and had a terrific view of the bay. The make your own waffles at breakfast were very popular. The staff was friendly and helpful.
Yes, our beach is a wonderful spot for summer activities such as volleyball and boating. It is hard to beat a fire by the bay in the evening.
I hope you stay with us again!
Park Shore is Awesome!
We often stay in the Traverse City area. The Park Shore hotel, is very elegant and 1st class hotel. Our Jacuzzi room was spectacular. With a great view of the West Bay! The room was very clean and service people were great. We stayed and extra day!
My family and I spent a week at the Parkshore Resort and we were extremely impressed. It was very clean, service was good, the price was right.
The free breakfast was exceptional, especially the fresh waffles. One morning I arrived late at breakfast and clean-up had commenced. I asked if there was any more batter for the waffles - which there wasn't. However, instead of brushing me off, they got more to accomodate me. The beach was beautiful, apparently voted best in Traverse City. I agree as I have spent time at most hotels in Traverse City - this hotel is among the best. Not as nice as the Grand Traverse Resort (still my favorite for the area), but much cheaper and still better than most others along the east and west bay. We will definately visit again.
Incredible property and the best experience for all of my employees
After staying in many area hotels we ended up here at Parkshore Resort and have made it our company's stadard when working with our local clients. The service is excellent, the property is first rate, and the cost is extremely competitive. I highly recommend this property.
Reservation Error by Manager
I reserved a room for June 20 and 21st. When I arrived I was told in no uncertain terms that my reservation was for May 20 and 21st and there were no rooms left at the internet rate of $69.99. They told me that it was my fault for not checking the confirmation. I requested a friday and saturday and yet they booked me for May 20 and 21st, a tuesday and wednesday. The help had not been very pleasant in the past and I will definitely never stay there again.
I had a two nights stay at the Parkshore. The second night I was walking around a chair and tore my pant leg on a piece of metal sticking out of the chair. I called the front desk to report it. I was told I would have to talk to the manger who was not available. I tried to talk to her before I checked out, again she was not available. I had to call for three days and leave several messages. Finally I called and the manager answered the phone. She told me she didn't have time to talk to me and there was nothing they would do to cover the cost of my pants. The hotel was decent but the service was poor. I would not recommend the hotel.
