About Derek & Melissa Rothhaar + Mike & Elyse Zehnder
We bought this house together as two couples looking for some secondary income. All 4 of us grew up in Michigan and have always dreamed of owning a home like this and by sharing it with renters we can!
Derek & Melissa Rothhaar + Mike & Elyse Zehnder purchased this House in 2017
Why Derek & Melissa Rothhaar + Mike & Elyse Zehnder chose Williamsburg
This home was so perfect. We searched for almost a year for the right property in the right location at the right price. Great lake, proximity to Traverse and access to just about anything Northern Michigan has to offer in under an hour.
What makes this House unique
Our house is called Twin Palms because of some distinctive metal palm trees lining our view of the lake. At first we thought they were cheesy, but they have grown on us and give the house some unique character that nobody else has!

We had a wonderful time with friends and family at this wonderful home. The owners were great to work with. We can’t wait to come back. Thank you for everything!
This gorgeous home was the best vacation home for our family!
As the rental organizer, this vacation home was smooth and easy with the owners and they were very accommodating. They were also quick to answer any questions we had about the property after we arrived. Clearly they take pride in their home as it was a perfect fit for our family of 18 and felt so comfortable being there for the week. Every family member said that they would come back in a heartbeat!
The home was exceptionally spacious with gorgeous views of the water immediately after entering the front door. With the tall, beautifully wood planked ceilings you never felt like you were on top of each other. Even grandma had her own separate bedroom that was private and cozy. There were also so many places to converse, both inside the home and outside. I can't emphasize enough at how accommodating this home was, from all the available dishes and appliances (blenders, utensils, large crock pot, pots, pans, bowls, etc.) to the outside seating areas with beautiful resin wicker/glass table with chairs and hidden pullout seats too...enough for 16 people to sit around. When the morning sun came up we opened the very large retractable awning which covered the whole seating area. We also had lots of room for us all to sit around the fire pit that's right near the waters edge, hearing the splashes of water while we enjoyed nighttime view and starry sky.
We brought along our ski boat and two jet skis and had no problems attaching them at the shore and dock. It was a quick 1 minute boat ride to Elk lake (beautiful lake) and about a 30 boat ride to Torch lake (gorgeous), which we went to these lakes every day!
This was a vacation spot that my family and I were sad to see end and is at the top of our list at returning to. Thank you Twin Palms for providing such a gorgeous home for us to creating some wonderful family memories!
Great accommodations. Everything was exceptionally and everyone had a great time..
Would recommend for large family gatherings. There was a lot activities to do for all ages. Had a great time!
It could not have worked out better!
It could not have worked out better! This home is beautifully maintained with amazing views of the lake! The home is very family friendly and user friendly as well. We had four generations that came together to spend a week here and we were not disappointed. There are two kayaks, two paddle-board‘s Plus a small kid size paddleboard. There are plenty of lifejackets available, noodles to play with in the lake and beach towels for everyone! The deck attached to the house overlooks the lake and has a wonderful table that accommodated us nicely every night as we sat outside for dinner!
All of the beds were super comfortable! I have nothing negative to say about this home and the owners were a pleasure to work with!
The property couldn’t have been more perfect for our family vacation. The house was nicely furnished with everything we needed. Great property and great location!!!
Very nice home! Loved the patio, kayaks, paddle boards, fire pit, and the lake!
The house was great for our group of 13! The house is well stocked, very clean and modern. The water accessories, fire pit, and beautiful patio and furniture were terrific! We really enjoyed our stay.
