At Brys Estate, you're encouraged to taste the estate difference!

Eileen Brys purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Eileen Brys chose Elk Rapids

After combing the country for property to start a vineyard and winery, the owners returned to their home state of Michigan to check out the availability of vineyard land in the Traverse City area. It was love at first sight when they saw the 91-acre dilapidated former cherry orchard and buildings. The 1890's farm house was completely renovated, the land was cleared and cover cropped to prepare it for planting grapes. During the 4 year process of planting grapes and clearing the old buildings, the owners also moved an old barn into the valley on the property as well as renovate an old tractor barn into a storybook guest cottage. In 2004 construction on the winery and tasting room began and the tasting room was open to the public in May of 2005.

What makes this cottage unique

The transformation of the guest cottage is magical. The views of the vineyards and East Grand Traverse Bay are breathtaking and the coziness of the house is unmistakable. Guests can stroll the 91 acres, the vines, the woods and enjoy nature at its best.

Thank you for the memories!

I would like to thank everyone at Brys Estate for their wonderful hospitality and thoughtfulness during our stay at your beautiful guest house. Our daughter and son-in-law celebrated their marriage on September 14, 2013 and the guest house was in close proximity to both the church and reception on Old Mission Peninsula. The location and serenity allowed my husband and I time to relax among the festivities. As Brys Estate Wine Club Members we enjoyed a wine tasting visit as well. I highly recommend the Brys Estate Guest for your next stay. The amenities, friendliness and attention to detail are well worth the visit. We will return in the near future.

The Best on the Peninsula!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I recently stayed at Brys Estate with two other couples for a mini wine tasting getaway. The description and photos on the website don't even begin to show the beauty of the house and property. The house is clean, recently remodeled and absolutely beautiful. And the view from the front patio/lawn are beyond description. Although we had three couples staying in the house, we felt like we had enough room to relax and enjoy. We had a private patio wine tasting with delicious food and world class wine. We will most certainly be back again to enjoy Brys Estate. Our only regret is that we stayed only one night!

Amazing hospitality in a serene setting

  • 5 of 5
The photos can't do justice to the amazing setting. My friends and I so enjoyed sipping our coffee on the front porch that overlooked both the vines and the water - so peaceful! The cottage was immaculate - and filled with comfortable yet high-end furnishings and amenities. Will definitely be coming back to stay next time we visit the area!
