Pinestead Reef Resort, Traverse City
Our stay was amazing!! My husband and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary and we enjoyed your hotel. I would recommend this hotel to our family for any get together's or vacation. I loved that I could go and lay by the water but if too warm or raining go inside to swim at the pool. We loved the kitchen it allowed us to prepare our own meals as an option of going out all the time.

30th Wedding celebration
My husband and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary and spent the weekend at your facility. I was very impressed and we enjoyed our stay. I was a little alarmed that when my husband laid down for a nap a lady came to the glass doors off the beach and starting knocking he got up and told her through the glass she had the wrong room she had 2 other ladies meet her and they sat at the table outside our bedroom drinking and talking so loud that my husband got up other than that our experience was exceptional. Thank you

Décor was dated, but clean. Door locks and door was damaged. View of bay was excellent. Overall met expectations

ONLY one night
My wife traveled with me on this business trip. What an elegant surprise. Posh , but functional. A little worn around the edges, but tastefully decorated. Picture a small apartment or timeshare Right On Traverse Bay! We could hear the waves lapping the shore. Alas, we could on stay one time maybe a week.
