About Diana Wright

We built the Lodge in 2010 on our family owned property where we grew up and enjoyed a wonderful childhood. You can't find a nicer lake or beach area for swimming and relaxing. We hope everyone that vacations here has a wonderful time, makes wonderful family treasured memories and hopefully returns every year to add to those treasured memories!

Diana Wright purchased this lodge in 2010

Why Diana Wright chose Traverse City

Great Lake, tranquil, secluded but yet close to everything.

What makes this lodge unique

Close to everything, within 12 miles to any activity desired. Water is only 50' from a Lodge full of conveniences.

Memories, Memories, Memories!

  • 5 of 5

Not much more I can say about this wonderful place that hasn't already been said. We gathered our five adult children, two sons-in-law and two young grandchildren from California and Georgia to create new memories in Northern Michigan where my husband spent many summers as a kid. My husband's brother and his wife and their adult daughter joined us for a couple of nights too. Twelve adults and two children, and we couldn't have asked for a better place for all of us to stay comfortably together. The house is stocked with everything you could ever need. The owners thought of every detail, including clothes pins and a sharpie to identify the bath towels! There was something for everyone to do. If you didn't want to spend all day in the lake, there was plenty of room on the beach to set up cornhole or volleyball (bring your own). If you're not an outdoor person, you could stay inside and play pool or foosball or various card games. We visited Sleeping Bear Dunes and Old Mission Point which were both an easy drive from the lodge. Diana was super friendly and accommodating. I don't know if we'll ever make our way back to Northern Michigan, but if we do, you can rest assured we'll know where to stay!

Better than we expected and made our family trip OUTSTANDING!

  • 5 of 5

Thirteen people in my family (7 adults and 6 children) stayed at this property from July 4-July 9, 2016. Diana was great about answering my questions in a timely manner and making the reservation process easy. She even put us in contact with Terri, her neighbor across the lake who took family photos for us during our stay. She made sure the house was stocked with everything we would need.....paper plates, paper towels, toilet paper, etc.

The pictures do not do justice to the place! Prior to arriving, we had a difficult time trying to "picture" the layout in our heads. It is basically like two separate "homes" with a shared common basement/walk-out. Each separate home has a full kitchen, full bathroom, master bedroom and futon/pullout sofa in living room. The common basement has a bunk bed (single on top/double on bottom) and 2 futons. Huge kitchen table, ANOTHER kitchen and half bathroom down there.

Our kids LOVED using the kayaks and paddle boat, as well as swimming out to the dock and jumping off the diving board. So much fun! (Although, I admit our southern blood had a hard time handling the cooler water temps.)

The drive into Traverse City is only a few minutes, so you get the best of both worlds---feeling like you are in the middle of nowhere at the lake and being close to groceries, Target and downtown TC with its shops and beautiful views of the bay.

We spent a day at Sleeping Bear Dunes and drove up to Northport to see the Grand Traverse Lighthouse. Easy to do in such a central location.

I would highly recommend this property to my friends/family, and I hope we can get back there again!

Feels Like Home

  • 5 of 5

We came with 5 adults and 5 children. This house is stocked with EVERYTHING you need. Ziplocs, paper plates, laundry soap, soap in bathrooms, plenty of towels, pots and pans of all sorts, and some, etc,. These amenities made our stay much more relaxing and homelike. No need to run out for simple day to day necessities. Very clean inside and the decor is warm and inviting. The setup is unique almost like having 3 apartments attached. This house is nestled between trees on a sandy beach. perfect for families with small children. Our kids stayed in the water as long as the weather permitted. The only concern I had, our neighbor's children had caught swimmer's itch during our stay. We were extra cautious with showers and preventing with tons of sunscreen and our kids were fine. There are many birds in the area which are beautiful to listen to and watch, but they do bring along the swimmer's itch. Also, although we did have a sandy beach area and quite clean water, on both sides of our beach it was a little mucky. Despite these issues, we still enjoyed the quietness of the small private lake. Our kids loved jumping off the floating diving board. We had bonfires nightly on the beach, made s'mores, listened to music. We tried to rent a boat for tubing but most places said they would not deliver here because of the steep launch. Lastly, Diana, the owner, was very welcoming and helpful. The house was very comfortable for all us, we had an amazing time, thank you!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! We're happy you made some great memories at the Lodge. We hope to see you all again. It's too bad swimmers itch is common in the warmer lakes but we keep garden flags and an owl decoy there so the geese and ducks usually don't visit our beach. Have a great year!

Terrific Lake House Rental

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at the High Lake Lodge. This rental is terrific for multiple families staying in the Traverse City, Michigan area. The lodge consisted of a duplex along with a basement area. The duplex was great for when the different families wanted to have time with their own family and yet large enough for all members of the group to be together. The three kitchens were very impressive and well stocked with appliances and dishes needed to cook for various types of meals. We highly recommend this wonderful vacation rental.

Very beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We traveled from the UP to Traverse City for a hockey tournament and stayed at the home. It was simply amazing. Very beautiful location on a private lake. It reminded me of the UP. I will be staying at this property again and really enjoyed everything about it.
