About Lisa

We have lived in this home since it was built, raising our family in an area that has so much to offer. We love being on the water, traveling and exploring new adventures that come our way. Other than traveling and boating, one of our favorite hobbies is restoring Vintage Travel Trailers.

Lisa purchased this house in 1989

Why Lisa chose Northwest

We love it here because we are close to town, but can get away from all the craziness when we want. It is also convenient to Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes, Leelanau County, Wineries and all the other quaint little towns that surround us. We walk to the lake.

What makes this house unique

Our home features a double sided fireplace with custom stonework on both sides, a deck overlooking the woods for privacy, a kitchen with island for gathering around while cooking dinner and is family friendly.

Perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our Traverse City vacation. It is a great location right off Long Lake Rd and close to the famous Moomers! The house was very clean and had all the amenities we needed - grill, great beds/bedding, nice towels and even Netflix for our rainy day. We would recommend this to anyone looking for a nice contemporary home in a beautiful wooded setting. 5 stars easily.

Superb house!

  • 5 of 5

We came to TC for an adult getaway. Three couples that have kids and just wanted a relaxing weekend. Lisa was awesome to work with. I was hesitant because my last VRBO booking was a horrible experience. This was superb. Lisa was very prompt in answering my questions (and I had a lot of them :). When we arrived on Friday everything was perfect. We grilled out on the nice quaint patio for dinner. Saturday morning we were ready for a full day in TC. The house was perfect and in a great location. I would definitely stay here again if we are in the area.

Great stay for a young family

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our young family - two adults and two young children (1 & 2.5 years old). The home was immaculate and looked just like the pictures on this site. Gary & Lisa provided a high chair for our youngest, which was incredibly helpful. This was so much better than staying in a hotel; our children got to play outside and have their own rooms. The downstairs bath was perfect for the kids bath, and there were plenty of towels for our whole family.

The house is located on Long Lake. Again - this was perfect for us. It was a 15-20 minute drive to TC and a 25 minute drive to Sleeping Bear Dunes. We also visited a number of local farms and Moomers, all a 5-10 minute drive away. This home allowed us to explore the region.

Owner's Response: Kristin, We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay, and that we could help you out to make it even better. We love our location. It's in between everything, without the craziness of being right in the center of it all!

great little place to stay with friends

We stayed with our friends (two other couples) and we had a great time, cooked and enjoyed some football and cards, great location, plenty of space, and the fireplace was very nice. Lisa was great, very helpful and accommodating!

Relaxing Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything we could have asked for! It was the perfect home base for a weekend in the Traverse City area. We enjoyed cooking breakfast at home each morning and then adventuring for the day. We spent a day relaxing at the nearby beach, buying groceries at the Lake Ann Grocery, the dunes, and the tasty food and drinks that Traverse City has to offer. We merely scraped the surface of what this area has to offer.

The amenities provided at the house really make this a home away from home. We would definitely come back and stay here and further explore the TC area.

There are so many things to do around our area. Wineries and Breweries galore. You can cross country ski or snowshoe out our back door. If you are an ice fisherman, the lake is just down the road. Our National Cherry Festival, Film Festival, Wine and Beer Festival are just a few fun events. World renowned music at Interlochen Arts Academy. Sleeping Bears Dunes,voted "Americas Most Beautiful Site" is just a quick jump in the car. Lake Michigan, Grand Traverse Bay and many inland lakes are great for swimming, boating and fishing. We are surrounded by championship golf courses. Hiking, biking, paddle boarding...You name it. You will never be bored!

It is totally separate with private entrance and doesn't interfere with your stay at all. We prefer that you pay by check.
