The Beach Haus Resort


Stayed there two years in a row with my family and it has one of the best beaches on traverse bay! It's clean and It certainly can meet up to any standards!

Nice resort!
Beautiful beach...well maintained lawn and outside sitting area. Interior was nice, quiet and offering a balcony for a nice bay view. Staff appeared helpful and courteous. I would stay there again!

Best 4th of July weekend ever!!!
My husband, and two sons, 8 & 10, decided at the last minute to go away for the 4th of July weekend. TC was our destination, with hopes of finding a room somewhere. After popping in several places, we stopped to check out the vacancy sign at the Beach Haus. We got the last room- a beautiful king suite with Jacuzzi- the price was extremely reasonable- especially for the holiday weekend. The gals at the front desk were absolutely wonderful- getting air mattresses for the kids, wine tour maps, tips on where to watch the fireworks- everything. The room was extremely clean. The view of the bay from the patio was breathtaking. The hospitality offered by this resort was above any we have experienced ever. Breakfast out back was great. The fun family atmosphere was exactly what we were looking for- tons of beach toys and rafts free of use, lawn chairs and beach chairs for everyone! What a fantastic resort! A majority of the guests that we met have been coming here for years- and now we see why. We will definitely be back! It was our best 4th of July ever!!!!

Very Nice
Nice place - very impressive, nice view, and love the breakfast. The beach is clean, although the day we arrived weather was not perfect, a bit cloudy, but we definitely love the hotel.

Kudos to you!
I was a guest at your resort last weekend, and I just wanted to let you know that I thought your resort was beautiful and that your staff was awesome. I was in the office several times and was always greeted very warmly and assisted quickly. I am in love with the Penthaus and will definitely be back to visit sometime in the near future!

Wish we’d discovered a long time ago!
My husband and I have been to Traverse City for many years each fall and have stayed at many different places. Unfortunately we only just discovered the Beach Haus last year, but will continue to go back. The place is more like a Bed & Breakfast. The rooms are cleaner than any expensive hotels I've stayed in anywhere. The staff is super friendly; the location is great and has one of the nicest beaches in the area. All at very economical rates. Every room has a balcony (2nd floor) or walk-out patio (first floor). They all face the bay and the "courtyard" area preceding the beach is charming, complete with patio tables, lawn chairs and gazebo - all landscaped beautifully. Most of their customers are repeat business and "regulars" - that should tell you something.

The Beach Haus Resort
Based on prior comments I thought I'd give the Beach Haus Resort a try, since it's right on the East Grand Traverse Bay in a beautiful setting. The hotel has been renovated and the staff was very nice. Although our timing was off, the hotel had a Jazz band on Friday night from 5-7 on the lawn/gazebo right off the beach and continental breakfast each morning. If you're looking for a small hotel, the location was great, rooms were clean and comfortable and we would definitely stay there again.

The Beach Haus was very clean and had wonderful service. You could tell that they take pride in working at the Beach Haus. It was awesome.

Loved It!
This place was great! I recommend it highly! The room was great, very clean and also had a great view of the beach from our room.‎

“It was right on the water and had a nice beach. Even though there were hotels on each side it felt like you were in your own little paradise. There were plenty of sand chairs, lounge chairs and tables to sit around and relax. There was a great little gazebo to sit in with your morning coffee. The rooms were very clean. The staff was extra friendly and helpful. I would certainly stay there the next time I visit Traverse City.”

You will not be disappointed with this hotel
My boyfriend and I spent one night there and it was awesome. Great location, the beach is right there, beautiful sunset. The staff is awesome! I cannot wait to go back for a longer visit. They have the best continental breakfast I have ever experienced. You will not be disappointed in this hotel.

“Best stay of our trip! Highly recommend!”
We found this resort online, read the Tripadvisor reviews and are so glad that we chose to stay here. At check-in, the girls were welcoming, efficient and full of area information. Everything was neat, clean and freshly updated in the corridors and rooms. The balcony views were perfect from the 2nd floor with easy-access to the beach. The breakfast was tasty, especially the cinnamon rolls. The overall experience was relaxing and comfortable. We traveled from Arkansas to Michigan and this was our favorite stay!

“Outstanding Hospitality ”
Our experience and rating is based on the outstanding customer service we received. The family owned resort shows attention to detail providing a nice continental breakfast and fresh baked cookies in the evening. We enjoyed chatting with them. We felt as though they welcomed us into their beloved area. The rooms are nice and view is beautiful, but is was the hospitality that won us over.

“Resort that Cares!”
This resort is family owned and the WHOLE family works! If you need anything, let them know and they will take care of it. I called for more linen, and they said they would be right up. 30 seconds later a knock at the door and I mean they brought it RIGHT UP! They have a fine breakfast continuously monitored to keep restocked. Although they have hot items, the feature is the Bob Evans cinnamon rolls (that deserves a review also). They are to die for. Next to mention are the freshly baked chocolate chip cookies at 8 PM. Also wonderful. The owner takes time to mingle and visit with the guests, and gets to know them as the continue to return each year. My friends did not want me to give a glowing review because they don't want it to get over-crowded

“Great Place, Great Service !”
I just came back from my weekend getaway from Traverse City. I booked this hotel through Upon my arrival they have room waiting for us on the 2nd floor, when I mentioned that I am traveling with two older ladies (my mom is 80 and just had hip-replacement, and my MIL is 85) they accommodated us by moving us on the first floor - beach view. Yes the rooms are a bit outdated, but mattresses are very comfortable and a continental breakfast is better than in any other small hotels I've ever stayed. Great place, Great people!

My newest best Traverse City hotel
My wife and I booked two nights to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. The price was extremely affordable and I was worried that it might prove to be less than what these reviews suggested. The Beach Haus Resort was almost exactly as others have indicated. The maintenance of the entire facility was the highest I've seen anywhere. Even the light sconces on the exterior were clear and clean. The beach was quite literally manicured and the sand raked clean from the water's edge. We didn't try swimming because of the very cold temperatures, but the bottom appeared sandy to as far as we could see. A quick look at the adjoining beaches showed the high maintenance level of the beachfront. The patio overlooking the east arm of the bay was wonderful. Each night we enjoyed the sunset over the Mission peninsula. The room included free WI-FI, and the morning breakfast that was included in the room rate was good. I'd give this place a solid 5 stars and plan to visit again with my wife. And, I have no hesitation in recommending to anyone.

Love the changes!
My family and I returned to the Beach Haus Resort on a recent visit to Traverse City, Michigan. What a gem! We've been there on two other occasions in recent years and we loved the new changes! The non-smoking policy (except for the designated smoking area) really makes sense. The Resort is so clean and the staff is so very helpful. You and your family will love the beach there too - it truly is the best beach in TC. (we've looked at many!) We appreciate the relaxing atmosphere of the motel too, very calm and peaceful. A great place to relax and unwind. We saw a couple of negative comments about the new direction and had to write - we love the changes! Keep it up!

Miss this place

A Great Family Vacation
We love the Beach Haus! We have been going there every summer for the last 9 years and my sister's family has been going for 20+ years. The reason: Great beach, good breakfast, comfortable rooms, helpful staff.

— Yahoo! contributor

Wonderful & we can’t wait to return
I was very happy to find such a nice place with short notice and reasonably priced. I was surprised at how clean the entire place was. Not a cobweb even outside. The staff was friendly, the ground are magnificent, clean and neat. I loved having a patio door that lead out to a lawn, then the beach right there....that's why I go on vacation.

— Yahoo! contributor

Our family stayed here for a week, and it was perfect! We will definitely return. Clean, QUIET, beautiful. A great bargain, you get way more than you pay for!! A+++

— Alice P.

You Need to Stay Here
We have been going to the Beach Haus for 5 years now! our families absolutely love it. They have a great staff that will do anything for you even provide everything for s'mores and cooking on their grills. Rooms are very clean and they have a great breakfast every morning. We will continue to go there and even refer anyone who wants to have a great time on the beach with great views and great service.

An even more memorable honeymoon
What a charming place chock-full of amenities! We visited off-season for our honeymoon and could not believe the value and the quality of the Beach Haus!!! After we checked-in we went to get a bite to eat and upon returning, we were greeted with a chilled bottle of champagne and two toasting glasses, and a very sweet "Congratulations on your wedding" note attached. The Continental breakfast has all others beat! What a delicious buffet of breakfast goodies, not just sweets but protein dishes as well, which is GREAT for my hypoglycemic husband! We are going back for a "second honeymoon" in Spring of 07' and we can't wait!!! p.s. I took pictures with my cell phone while we were there and we look at them from time to time and remember the wonderful honeymoon we had in Traverse City!!!

Wonderful family resort
This resort is a wonderful place to have a family vacation. It is very neat and clean. The staff are very friendly and helpful. It is the nicest place we have stayed and would highly recommend it to anyone. Anytime we are in Traverse City, we will definitely stay here. It is definitely "a home away from home".

A little slice of Traverse City heaven!
My husband was on leave from the Marine Corps for several days prior to deploying for a one year tour in Iraq. We chose the Beach Haus because of the location, beautiful bay views and they were close to everything we wanted to see in Traverse City. We were so pleased with everything from the accommodations, the fresh breakfast bar served every morning, and the very friendly and helpful staff! We couldn't have chosen a better place to spend our last vacation days together, and look very forward to going back this spring when my husband returns home. Can't wait to experience this "little slice of Traverse City heaven" again!

A nice place
I booked 12 rooms at the hotel last summer for my wedding party and it was great. You can't beat the price, and they have such a beautiful beach. I would definitely stay here again.

Up North at it’s finest!!!
This little gem may not have the most updated furnishings, but that is part of it's charm. It was cleaner than any hotel I have ever been to and this is exactly what I expect from Northern Michigan. If I wanted modern decor, I would go to New York City. The beaches, staff and accommodations surpassed my expectations. I would go there again in a heartbeat. The breakfast in the breezeway with tables on the grass was a wonderful way to start the day. Way to go Beach Haus!!!

— Cheryl

Better than any big resort
I have been to the Beach Haus many times in the last 20 years and have always enjoyed our stay. The rooms are clean, the staff is great and you have everything you need within walking distance. Best beach, 5 or 6 gas grills, and fresh herbs growing for your use... best place to stay in TC.

Amazing is an Understatement
I've grown up at the Beach Haus. It's my home away from home every summer, since before I could walk. People here are like my family. First days always consist of getting here before our wonderful room is ready and running down the wooden walkway to the beach hoping to see those familiar faces, knowing that you will. You make memories that will last you a lifetime. Just that all too friendly duck that seems to knock on your door for breakfast in the morning - the Beach Haus has something to offer for everyone. I highly recommend staying here, I know I wouldn't go anywhere else.

What a charming place!
Our neighbor told us about the Beach Haus, and we are so pleased that he did. The Bavarian style resort is charming, extremely clean, with large, lovely rooms, and very well kept grounds. Its continental breakfast is excellent, and its staff is superb--so friendly that they make you feel like "family." We've been there twice this summer, and will definitely go back again next year!

To a Wonderful and Friendly Staff
Richard and I want to thank you for a wonderful stay at the lovely and warm Beach Haus. It is one of our favorite places to stay. All of the staff was most courteous and ready to serve us, even when we kept asking to stay longer they met our needs. (It's so hard to leave there.) We miss all of you and hope all will have a good winter. With deep appreciation.

— Richard and Deborah

“Small and relaxing”
Small hotel and private beach means no fighting for space on the beach. Very friendly and helpful staff and owners. Easy access to the TART trail (just cross the street). Very relaxed atmosphere. Rooms face the bay. We were on the 2nd floor. Nice to sit on the balcony and do nothing. Or sit on the beach and do nothing. The rooms are no frills, but with the bay and the beach, what do you need frills in the room for?
