The Village at Grand Traverse Commons is an ongoing redevelopment project and that means we’re able to introduce new spaces to Traverse City and to our guests on a regular basis. The Kirkbride Suite is one of those places and it stands as an unforgettable launching point for everything that The Village and the Traverse City region has to offer. This dramatic 2,700 square foot, two-level retreat is in the historic 1885 Chapel Building and is now available for short-term rentals.
A private stop elevator delivers you to a fully furnished condominium with one king bedroom and two queen bedrooms on the main level, each with a private bathroom. A large loft with luxurious queen sleeper sofa and trundle bed is perfect for quiet reading or room for the kids, also with a full bath and a jet tub. All beds feature luxury linens and covers.
Historic bricks and beams and dramatic open ceiling angles combined with new flooring and an abundance of wood finishes create a space that is stunning and remarkably comfortable. The suite has been completely renovated with new heating and cooling, all new Kohler fixtures, and a convenient washer and dryer for longer stays. The fully equipped kitchen has maple cabinets, stainless steel appliances, granite counters, under cabinet lighting and a prep sink, English china, ample cookware, and more.
Literally steps away from the Kirkbride Suite are charming boutiques, world-class dining, popular cafes, coffee shops, bakeries and award-winning wineries. The Historic Lawn and Arboretum is located on the east portion of the property and a quaint piazza with picnic tables and two bocce courts to the west. Surrounding the Village are hundreds of acres of parkland, historic barns and botanic gardens and miles of hiking trails.
The Kirkbride Suite can give you a taste of all the area has to offer, for the week or a perfect weekend getaway.
