About Troy

We are in love with the area and have been vacationing here for years. This is where we will retire and we are eager to share our love of the area with you.

Troy purchased this house in 2015

Why Troy chose Traverse City

This property had everything on our wish list. Nice sandy beach, good boating, tons of room for our entire extended family were the things that hooked us. Plus it's 10 minutes from some of the best dining in the state of Michigan.

What makes this house unique

The proximity to Interlochen truly intrigues us, we plan on taking a concert or two there, I would try it if you can. You can see the fireworks from the house for home games from the beach bums and Traverse City is right there!

Great layout for larger families with children. Awesome lake views.

  • 5 of 5

Great view of the lake from both elevated decks. The home was older, but well-maintained on the inside. Kitchen had newer appliances, and ample cookware and tableservice for a large family. The dock accommodated the boat and Jetski that we rented while staying at the property. The beach, though small was perfect size for kids to play and adults to lounge while enjoying the great views of the lake.

Already planning for our next trip!

  • 5 of 5

We had the BEST experience renting this house in Traverse City. Our large group (including small children) stayed for a week and all felt like the house fit all of our needs. The beach was perfect for the kids to play, for the adults to kayak and for everyone to join for a campfire. Downtown Traverse City was only 15-20 minutes away so we frequently went there for meals and entertainment. There was a close grocery store & gas station for convenience. The house location was just perfect for enjoying both the social scene downtown and privacy at the house. Everything was very clean. The layout was great with all the room and one giant great room for us to all hang out in. We do wish there was a little bigger kitchen table but that was a minor detail in the grand picture. During our stay, the refrigerator started acting up, not keeping cool and just making us nervous. The owner was so accommodating that he came out and replaced it so we were sure to not have any further problems. He was excellent at efficient communication and made us feel very comfortable asking questions if anything came up. I HIGHLY recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in Traverse City. You won't find a better property for the fair price and a great owner!

It just doesn't get any better.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location on the perfect lake. The swimming never stopped, the sand castles were built, the fishing competition was hot and heavy, and the kayak and paddle board were huge hits. Being close to Traverse City was really convenient, and offered many places for meals and desserts.

I was so impressed by the owner's quick responses to my questions. He was so helpful. The house was stocked with much more than we usually find -- we had to buy much less than usual.

It all added up to the perfect vacation for us, our children and our grandchildren.
