Winter Getaways: Hotel Savings in Traverse City, MI

Sugar Beach Resort Hotel

During the summer, much of the Midwest flocks to Traverse City, an arts-oriented quaint community in Upper Michigan tucked into an up-and-coming wine region. The city of just 15,000 residents sits on Grand Traverse Bay, which flows into Lake Michigan. Celebrity chef Mario Batali spends summers here, and Madonna’s parents own a winery in nearby Suttons Bay (Ciccone Vineyard & Winery), on the Leelanau Peninsula. Dubbed the Cherry Capital, it’s a foodie paradise with bushels of this locally grown fruit topping many dishes, plus artisan chocolatiers, coffee roasters and restaurants headed up by James Beard Award semifinalist chefs.

bemate hotels with vacation home rentals

Be Mate

In the era of Airbnb, travelers have gotten comfortable with the idea of choosing between a full-service hotel and the extra perks of a home rental — like kitchen access, lounge areas, and interaction with locals. It’s not a particularly surprising (or, at this point, new) development. We want more immersion, more culture, and a taste of what it’s like to actually live in the destinations that we visit. Hotel brands, however, have been taking note; in fact, more and more are starting to manage their very own vacation rentals, so that guests don’t have to choose between the comforts of home and the comforts of the hotel at all.
