Nick & Mike Anton purchased this house in 2016

Why Nick & Mike Anton chose Traverse City

We bought this home because it was unique in style (Hexagon) and offered an awesome sandy beach. We bought the home from the original owners from 1967 and we wanted to preserve the character with just a full modernizing.

What makes this house unique

Not gonna lie, one unique benefit is getting to go there and BBQ or swim with friends and family during the vacant days! Cant beat that!

Beautiful, clean, comfortable home on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! The house was great for us and our young adult kids (seven kids, two with spouses). We were there during a beautiful snowstorm and were in awe of the view from the warm, cozy, fire-lit house. We still enjoyed a blustery walk on the beach right out the back door (trying out a new pair of snow shoes too)! Blue tractor and Tap Root were great and we also loved cooking together in the well-stocked kitchen. The living area of the house was perfectly suited for our large group to cook, eat, and play games together. We hope to visit again in the summer!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed the home and your stay despite the epic snow storm! Swap the snowshoes for sandals if you decide to book a summer visit. Thanks for being our guests, Nick and Mike

My girlfriends and I had the most amazing weekend up in TC while staying at your house! The weather was perfect and the house was everything we needed for a great weekend! Thank you so much for being on standby as we had that little incident with the door handle! We will definitely be back again!

Perfect Beach House!!! Your own personal Beach and owners are great. Best week we have had!

  • 5 of 5

Words can't explain the week at this beach house. It was such a great experience and the owners are so helpful. If you want your own sandy Beach vacation this is the perfect choice. We had such a great time and created so many family memories that we are thankful for. The house, the Beach, the water, the kayaks...I could go on and on. The location is like your own personal resort and is within short distance to downtown, Mission point, and all the fun nearby. We had the best time!!!!
