Traverse City has continually ranked as one of the “Prettiest Towns in the U.S.A.". Just moments out of Traverse City limits runs Old Mission Peninsula - A narrow 18-mile strip of land dividing Lake Michigan into West and East Grand Traverse Bay. Located along the eastern shoreline of Old Mission Peninsula, Peninsula Shores offers privacy, world-class views, and a unique sought-after sense of community. To our residents, it’s a little piece of “paradise".

From every home and all of the walking trails, the views are stunning, and as one resident states, almost like living on your own “Caribbean Island". The Shores' half-mile shoreline walking trail offers you the best of Northern Michigan's private, waterfront community living. Once you try it out, you won’t want to leave.
