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 Northwest

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!

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.

Would highly recommend this house.

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 12 of varying ages and interests were all very pleased. Location wise, the house will make you feel as if you are away from city living, but in reality there are grocery/party stores and gas stations within minutes. Beach Bums Stadium is about a 5 minute drive, tickets are always available and affordable. We enjoyed fish and chips at Maddys Tavern and checked out the arcade at Incredible Mos, both about a 5-10 minute drive. It’s about a 20 minute drive to downtown TC which is easy access to various shops, restaurants and breweries. The Great Lakes Children’s museum is just outside of downtown and was perfect for our little one on a rainy day. Also plenty of rental facilities nearby. Jet ski was awesome on the lake.

Besides the location the home itself was well maintained, clean and comfortable. Pictures provided are exact and you will not be met with any unwanted or unexpected surprises upon arrival. The kitchen had ample food storage space and was well stocked. We had no problem getting 10 of us around the dining room table for card games at night. The living room offered sufficient seating for everyone to relax. Plenty of towels, wash cloths, pillows, and blankets were all provided. The beach was just the right size for us to hang out at during the day and have bon fires at night. Great place to stay!! Owner is very responsive and helpful.

Large family friendly house

  • 5 of 5

The entire family (2 grandparents, 4 adult children, 4 grandchildren) loved the house and the location. We were very close to all of the things that we like to do when we visit the Traverse City area: beach on small lake for the little ones, close to Lake Michigan for all, great sight seeing and unique shopping. We've stayed at many different places in the TC area over the years and this is one of the most convenient locations we've ever stayed.

The home was clean, well maintained and extremely family friendly. The young kids loved having new toys to play with, the dvd collection was quite impressive and the fishermen in our group never went more than 10 minutes without a nibble on their line.

The description and pictures of the house and property were accurate. We would love to come back again!

Great vacation home.

  • 5 of 5

We definitely enjoyed our accommodations at AgLago. The home was very spacious, clean and tastefully decorated. There were toys galore for my two grandchildren in the bunk room and at the beach. We also enjoyed the collection of DVDs. The kayak was also a nice asset. The only improvement I would make would be to have a booklet of instructions at the residence. I read them on line but did not have them while I was there. Also a bath on the bottom floor would make the place perfect. It was a perfect location to access Traverse City, the Dunes and other points of interest in the area. I would highly recommend AgLago.

Owner's Response: Nice idea on the instructions. I will print them out for next year. And we are adding a bathroom. While it doesn't really pay for itself, it's something that we think would be great for the house.

Great House with a Great Lake!

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything a large family (we had 8 adults and 5 kids) needs to relax and enjoy a week at the lake. The house was clean and neat. The sandy beach was nice with a very clear lake. Troy was a good owner to work with. The house is situated well to all the attractions of the traverse city area and grocery shopping. We did have an empty propane tank we had to fill, but other than that we found everything to be perfect. We will definitely be back in the future.

Owner's Response: Lindy, Thank you for your kind words. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. As far as the propane goes, we do not provide propane. Logistically it is impossible to get someone to deliver and hook up a brand new propane tank each week. I do have that in the online instructions that we provide a grill but no propane. I apologize for any confusion. Kindest Regards, Troy and Jennifer.
