A travel inspired private room in my quaint, mid-century inspired home just 1.3 mi to downtown Traverse City.

Includes plush queen bed, full bathroom, stocked kitchen, private back patio, and newly remodeled dry cedar sauna.

The space

My home is your home for your stay. It's decorated with art, books, treasures and furniture inspired by my love of retro minimalism.

You are staying in a private bedroom with an extra cozy Queen bed. All linens you could need are prepped for you, too: bedding, bath towels, beach towels, and extra blankets.

The room includes an empty closet for storage, desk for working in your room and small seating nook that has great morning sun.

Feel free to enjoy the back patio for a sunrise cup of coffee, chilling in the hammock, an after dark bonfire or sweat out any toxins in the sauna.

The garage is stocked with bikes, locks, helmets, sporting equipment, coolers, beach chairs, basic tools and anything else you could need to enjoy your time in Northern Michigan

Guest access

* Private main queen bedroom and bathroom on the main level of my home.

* Shared use the main floor kitchen, living and dining room as well as the back patio, fire pit, brand new cedar sauna, laundry, garage, bikes and single parking space in the front driveway

Interaction with guests

I travel frequently, so I may not always be home during your stay.

When I'm in town, I proceed completely with my normal activities. I work outside of the house and am out and about most evenings. Sometimes I host dinner parties, bonfires, etc at the house. Feel free to just relax in your private room at times or for your whole stay.

I'm completely open to having as little or as much interaction as you feel comfortable with.

Other things to note

All are welcome. LGBTQ friendly and inclusive.

I hold a 'Tourist Home' permit from the city of Traverse City. All the safety and legal obligation of this permit mean you're in goods hands.

The main rule is please let me know if I can do anything to make your trip better. The goal is to get a 5 star review from each guest, and I want to do anything I can to earn it.

I prefer to communicate as much as possible through Airbnb messenger and the app. This allows for transparency and a really easy way to get in touch with me that lets me quickly reference your booking and reservation details.

This is a multi unit house. Entering another guest's or my private space before, during or after your stay is strictly not allowed, and will result in immediate cancellation of your reservation without refund. So, just be cool and don't do it. :)

Marta was very welcoming and has an amazing home an easily bikeable distance from downtown, and walkable to Traverse City Whiskey Company.

Location is bike-able to downtown and the garage provides easy bike storage. We did not take advantage of the sauna or shared areas but they seemed nice. There was about a day that we went without toilet paper, and I also wasn't able to find a hairdryer in a hurry before check out. The bed would be very comfortable for one person, but for 2 people, it was not. It could use more support to not sink in.

Marta was very welcoming after my friend and I had a not so fun experience with a previous host. She was a great host, I would definitely stay with her again.

The bedroom is very comfy for short stays. The sauna looked amazing even though we didn't have time to use it. Check-in time makes it difficult to use amenities if you're planning to stay for one night

Marta is a great host and went out of her way to help me learn a bit more about the local places and people. Plus, a very comfortable bed!

Marta is a great host! I've stayed with her once before and each time has been wonderful. The location is great for anyone looking to walk or drive to downtown TC. There are also extras that Marta provides like bikes, beach towels, etc for people looking to get outside. Bed was very comfy, too! Access to get in and out of the house is hassle-free, which is nice for people arriving/leaving at unusual times. Would happily stay again with Marta!

Marta User ProfileMarta is a superhost.

I'm a bicycle hoarder, tech lady, community activist and part-time wanderer. I travel light and fall hard for every place I visit.

If you're staying in my home, I hope you love it. The space is a complete reflection of my life, style, and travels. Northern Michigan is a piece of paradise that is rare to find, and easy to love. I dig sharing it with my guests.

I co-host with my friend and property manager, Kendall. We've been hosting together for over 4 years, and we love making your Michigan vacation super special!
