About Molly Menegay

My husband and I split our time between our home in Dallas, TX and Bass Lake. We were both born in the midwest with summer ties to Northern Michigan. We have six grown children and 6 precious grandchildren!

Molly Menegay purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Molly Menegay chose Northern Michigan

We fell in love with this home while visiting family Up North in 2014. It is a quaint cottage with tons of character. It sits on a small lake boasting beautiful views. Nature abounds with great fishing, varied bird watching and singing frogs!!! You'll love this serene setting. There is a fire pit and patio by the lake. You will also enjoy our deck across the back of the house with a dining table and comfy furniture.

Fantastic vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house is really well-equipped with everything you could want and so comfortable and beautifully decorated. We had a great time and hope to come back because a week wasn't enough time to do everything in the area! Molly was so helpful and we really appreciated everything they've done to make it such a great rental. I hope to be back soon!

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four recently stayed for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. Perfect home base for us while skiing at nearby Crystal Mountain. Very comfortable and welcoming. Since we were there in February, we didn't get to enjoy the water, but it's a beautiful setting anytime of year.

Owner's Response: Thank you. We too love our property in the Winter; the lake is so serene and there is usually a beautiful blanket of fresh fallen snow. I am glad that you enjoyed your time skiing at Crystal Mountain, its a great ski location. I think they have 52 runs now. We hope to see you again soon!

Perfectly Appointed Property in a Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were interested in finding a nicely appointed lake cabin. Our search directed us to this property nestled in the pines on Bass Lake . Interlochen is a stones throw away from Traverse City which offers fine dining, wineries, entertainment etc... Molly was quick and receptive answering any questions prior to booking. Responses generally occurred within 30 minutes. We were very impressed with the description and photos of the property and Molly's receptiveness sealed the deal and made the decision easy.

The rates for the property made this rental a very good deal. Bass Lake is a secluded beautiful inland lake that is easy to get to. As we approached the property, we appreciated the openness and wooded buffers between homes. The home itself is a well maintained log cabin that combines the ruggedness of a log cabin, with all the modern amenities and conveniences one would want in a lakefront home. The home itself is very open with floor to ceiling windows facing the lake. The lake is literally steps from the back deck. There is also a small sand beach, a dock (removed already because "winter is coming"), a boat available for use and all being perfectly secluded on all sides of the property. All the rooms are configured to optimize light and sunshine. The kitchen is sizable and well appointed with an adjacent dining area that looks directly out on the lake. There is a beautiful sun room with sofa and chairs for basking in the sunshine and a sizable deck to relax outside. The main living room is very comfortable with floor to ceiling windows providing a gorgeous view of the tree lined lake.The Master bedroom has a king sized bed with a great mattress to make sleeping a dream. Master bedroom also has a huge walk in closet to accommodate even the most heavily packing travelers. A full bath (not huge but adequate) is directly adjacent to the Master bedroom with shower/tub/sink etc... There is a very original wooden staircase that leads to the upstairs and oh wow is the upstairs special! There is a loft section with windows and magnificent views of the lake with a trumble bed right up against the windows (perfect for reading a book while taking in the sunshine and view of the lake ( or a well deserved nap). A leather sofa, chairs and entertainment center make it an all purpose area to be enjoyed. A 2nd full bath is also upstairs with a 2ndr bedroom. The cabin is wonderfully appointed with everything a traveler needs. Will book again!

The Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in this beautifully decorated, comfortable and homey cabin when visiting my nephew at Interlochen Academy. It was the perfect stay and we hope to go back often when visiting my nephew. It has absolutely everything you could ask for and is extremely well appointed. The owners provide every last detail that you need. We LOVED it! Thank you Molly and Mike for sharing this incredible gem! We hope to be back soon!
