About Nan Horstman

We are retired educators who have lived on beautiful Long Lake, just south of Traverse City, for 14 years, having been seasonal residents for 20 years before that. We love this area and are happy to call it home.

Nan Horstman purchased this condo in 2014

Why Nan Horstman chose Traverse City

While we love living on the lake, we also love being in vital Traverse City where we're active in our church and community. So, a few years ago we decided to try living both places -- the lake in summer and in town during the winter months. We're delighted that we were able to find this condo and are pleased to be able to share it with you. Its near-to-everything location, park view, charming decor and one-level living make it an ideal place.

Wonderful place to rent!

  • 5 of 5

Nan and her husband are amazing people with a wonderful place for a weekend or week in Traverse City. My family was actually in a car accident during our stay, and they went out of their way to help us out. I truly can't say enough about their kindness during a stressful time for my family.

Independent of the accident, we loved their place. It was right across the street from a park that my daughters loved playing on. The place itself was peaceful and relaxing. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen had everything you needed and the open floor plan in the living area was ideal for us. It is the perfect place for a young family or an older couple (it's on the first floor). Downtown Traverse City and the beach are both short walks away. Also, it puts you in a great central location for exploring Sleeping Bear Dunes, Old Mission Peninsula, etc.

We loved the place and would absolutely stay there again.

Great condo in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this property before and it is perfect for our family. It is a great location, across the street from a park and the beach is a quick walk away. We often walk into town. The condo is immaculate and well equipped and the owners are great to work with. We look forward to staying there again.

Very nice and close enough to walk to downtown.

  • 4 of 5

We were here in early May, before the tourists move in. Overall a nice spacious and clean condo in a great area. We could hear people above us walking around and there were some louder noises in the late evening after 10:00 (children jumping up and down??) and cable choices were limited, but we enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay, but sorry about the noise upstairs. If you'd have let us know we might have been able to resolve the issue.
