Keywords: ranch, single-family, beachfront, private, modern, vacation
I am a native of Traverse City who currently lives and works in Philadelphia, PA as a Director for a global bank.
Lisa M. Herman purchased this house in 2010
I'm an avid traveler, including Europe, Asia, South America and Africa but, Traverse is still one of my favorite places.
I am very proud of this very beautiful region and the vibrancy of this lovely little northerm Michigan city.
Here I find a wonderful combination of small town charm and metropolitan sophistication. From the family-oriented National Cherry Festival to the Traverse City Film Festival (co-founded by Director Michael Moore).
And for outdoor enthusiasts, there are so many options...Water sports on either of the Grand Traverse Bays, Hiking Biking Trails, Downhill and Cross-County skiing facilities

We enjoyed our three nights and would definitely come back. Communication was great and exactly as described.
We spent our 25th anniversary in this charming home steps from East Grand Traverse Bay. The home is open and decorated beautifully, with wonderful artwork. We spent many hours reading in the comfy chairs that face the open water when it was chilly, and the rest of the time either by the firepit on the beach, or sunning on it! There isn't another view that could beat this one, and the beach is literally about 8 feet from the door! The bed was comfortable, and everything needed was provided for. We will certainly be back next year if at all possible!!! Thank You Lisa, for sharing your beautiful slice of heaven with us.
My wife and I stayed here with our 2 year old son and had a very relaxing weekend. The house is clean and well cared for, and feels like a home. We loved that the backyard is the beach, with lots of windows for air and light. Backing out of the driveway onto a busy street was a little tricky the first time, but we were use to it after that. Traverse City was just a couple of minutes away, and our favorite stop turned out to be Cherry Republic winery. Overall it was a great trip, and we would highly recommend this as a place to stay!
This place is exactly as pictured. It has a great floor plan and you can see the beach and water from almost every space in the house. I definitely want to return!
This was our second visit to this wonderful property and although the weather did not cooperate, it was as wonderful as the first. We love this home with its charm, warmth and detail. It was the perfect place for a rest and relaxation escape. The owner is fabulous and so attentive and guest focused. She has provided for every detail for her guests with linens, towels, kitchen utensils all in place. The cleanliness would be described as immaculate. We will come back again and again. In fact, I miss the fabulous views of the East Bay already.
Couldn't have had a better stay on my first visit to Traverse City! Beautiful home - clean, well cared for and no detail has been overlooked. As soon as you walk in the door you are greeted with the stunning views of the beach and bay, then you look around and realize this home is even better than in the pictures! Make sure take in the sunrise with your coffee or sunset with a glass of wine from one of the many local wineries. The home is also pet friendly, my best girls had a blast bird watching on the beach. This is a great location for exploring Traverse City and surrounding areas with easy, scenic drives.
Lisa, the owner, is so friendly and a pleasure to work with. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and would definitely recommend to anyone visiting the area.
