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!

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.
Twin Palms: The perfect home for the memorable Northern Michigan family vacation
As a northern Michigan native I knew the general territory well when we booked Twin Palms online for a long overdue family vacation. I grew up in a small town about 20 miles down the road. So the website information and pictures made it easy for us to book this property for our family of (18) grandparents, kids and grandkids vacation.
Our expectations were exceeded as we drove up driveway to house and then opened the front door and saw the spectacular lake view through the huge windows in the living room. After we walked through the beautiful, spacious house the enthusiastic comments from everybody told Cheryl and I that we had picked the perfect home for our family vacation.
When everybody moved outside, across the deck, the beautiful lawn, through the Twin Palms (which my young grandkids quickly pointed out were not real) and onto the dock overlooking beautiful Lake Skegemog I knew we were "home" for one of the best weeks ever.
Everything was perfect - the layout of the house, the furniture, modern video and digital connections, the outdoor amenities and the waterfront of Twin Palms, all combined to make it "the" perfect family vacation spot in Northern Michigan. My family thanks you.
And a special thanks to the owners for being so easy to deal with from the time we booked the property to the day we checked out. Your team sets a high bar for other property owners.
On behalf of my entire family, thanks again for letting us use your "perfect" home for a "perfect" family vacation.
Walt & Cheryl Klein
Walt & Cheryl - thank you so much for the kind words. We are really glad your family had a great week. We are glad our hard work getting the house set up has paid off and look forward to hosting you up North next time!
Amazing weekend getaway
Truly an amazing weekend getaway. Off the main road, driving back to the house, with it’s peaceful surroundings was so surreal. I couldn’t believe how beautiful this was in the winter, and I cannot wait to return and enjoy a summer and hopefully every season getaway at Twin Palms. The pictures posted on the website were amazing, but this house and location is something you need to see and experience for yourself, it was absolutely breathtaking! The house was stunning, immaculate and everything we could’ve imagined. I couldn’t help but be in awe at the view directly in front of me, the twin palms and beautiful lake, although frozen over, the crisp air and snow covered grass and water were in itself an amazing winter experience. There was plenty of room, very comfortable beds and furniture, and ample amount of seating for our get-togethers. This was the perfect location as we headed into Traverse City the next day. I found myself so relaxed and in vacation mode being at the house, that I would’ve been content staying in and relaxing at this beautiful oasis. I truly felt relaxed and rejuvenated after this weekend getaway. I love giving true and honest reviews for places that deserve it, and Twin Palms is more deserving than ever! Thank you again, and I cannot wait to return!
Beautiful spacious vacation rental!
Absolutely stunning vacation rental! Was perfect for our multi-family getaway from young to old, allowing us plenty of space to sprawl out and lots of great gathering areas for meals, games or lounging. Completely outfitted with everything you could need for a carefree getaway. Property was large and beautiful overlooking the lake, great for enjoying the outdoors during all seasons. Close to Casino and a short trip to downtown Traverse City. Owners were great to work with. Will definitely be looking to book again!
Perfect home away from home!
The place was perfect for our group of 8 with lots of space so no one was tripping over each other. The house has awesome scenery with great access to the lake. It worked out perfect for our ski trip. The hosts were really easy to work with and flexible. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
