About Tricia Adams
We are Dean and Tricia Adams, both Northern Michigan natives. Dean is owner of Bay Area Contracting, a highly regarded custom home builder/ general contractor in the Traverse City area. Tricia is a Neonatal ICU nurse. We both love to travel, which means we know what people want in a vacation property. Also, we live on the lake, with our three young kids, which means we built these homes with all the amenities and conveniences desired by anyone living or vacationing on a lake with their family.

Why Tricia Adams chose Traverse City
Arbutus Lake is a special place, we know this because we live here. It's a 400 acre all sports lake with a public boat launch. Arbutus is great for high speed boating, yet it still offers the quiet serenity of a small lake. Even the busiest days on Arbutus don't compare to the craziness of a regular summer day on the more populated inland lakes of the Traverse City area.
What makes this House unique
This property was appealing for us to invest in because of our ability to build two homes side by side and because of they offer direct lake access. Many lots on Arbutus Lake are up high and require stairs and long winding pathways to reach the lake. Lakemore Retreat is at lake level and the walk to the sandy beach is as easy as it gets. Lakemore Cabin was renovated 1 year later, expanding our property frontage, and making us an even more ideal location for Family Reunions, small intimate weddings and also Corporate Retreats. Also, the houses are rented individually for smaller family units.

Lakemore Retreat is a weekly rental resort, offering summer check-in and check-out on Sundays. All three houses are directly next to each other on the shores of Arbutus Lake, a nearly 400 acre inland lake that hosts swimmers from May through October. Arbutus is an all sports lake big enough for skiing and tubing, but small enough to enjoy the calm waters for stand up paddle boarding, kayaking and fishing. Looking at the retreat from the lake, The Cabin is on the left, The Cottage is in the middle and The Lodge is on the right. The Cabin is an existing home that recently received a complete renovation that included new heating and cooling, flooring, a completely re-designed kitchen and 3 new bathrooms. All beds, furniture, and linens are new. The Cottage and Lodge are newly built homes that are mirror images of each other and offer the same amenities, just different interior design. Each house will have its own section beach, each with exclusive access to two SUP boards, two Kayaks and folding beach chairs. The Lodge and Cottage share a dock (which divides the beach into its respective sides) and The Cabin has its own dock. There are two hot tubs. The existing one seen in pictures and another hot tub that was recently installed in between The Cabin and The Cottage. The Cabin's access to the hot tub is dependent on the rental status of The Cottage and The Lodge.
Lakemore is within 20 minutes of downtown Traverse City, and is positioned so that getting to either the East or West side of town is easy.
