The Pinestead Reef is located directly on East Grand Traverse Bay. The resort is beautifully kept and very comfortable with each room having either a balcony or patio on the bay. Traverse City has a vibrant and historic downtown. The surrounding area is a abundant with opportunities for all year outdoor activities, from visiting the many wineries on the Peninsula to a variety of championship golf courses to a night at the nearby casinos after a day climbing the dunes on Lake Michigan. Grand Traverse County is a true gem with something for everyone.

We have owned 2-2/2 wks here for 10 years and have stayed here several times. While not flashy, it is a beautiful, well maintained resort in a fantastic location. There is much to do and see in the area regardless of what time of year you visit.

Grand Traverse Bay is spectacular. The beach is delightful even if it is too cold to swim. The indoor pool is a good substitute. Parasailing takes off from next door. Seeing both East and West Bays at the same time from 800 ft. in the air is a worthwhile experience. Traverse City is a very cosmopolitan little city. The shoppng and dining are excellent.

Spring and Fall are our favorite times to visit, before or after the summer crowds.

It also exchanges well within RCI. We enjoy it so much, we just bought two more weeks.
