About Tracey Jordan
The TraceyJordan Collection represents the history and evolution of two storied and adventurous families. While involved with and working within various “luxury markets”, we have remained equally interested in and dedicated to the simplicities of life … in the beauty of nature … in art … old world craftsmanship … and in creating lasting memories with family & friends. <br><br> For over thirty years we have been spending summer and autumn’s in Michigan’s idyllic Northwest corridor. Steeped in nostalgia, this region of charming towns, world renown lakes and natural wonders had been the setting for our family sharing stories, laughter and libations long into the starry nights. <br><br> In 2014, while sitting around a campfire on Burt Lake, we decided it was time the families shared this storybook setting - a quaint notion that quickly evolved into the TraceyJordan Collection; a luxury, boutique, vacation property developer specializing in providing luxury properties & a boutique experience to vacationers along Michigan ’s famed Inland Waterway in the states prestigious Northwest corridor. <br><br> The TraceyJordan Collection is guest-focused. We are in business to serve our guests & provide them with a vacation experience that is singularly unique. The Live®More ideology is central to our commitment and to the experience we will create for each of our guests. <br><br> The Live®More ideology embraces the simplicities in life & encourages people to relax and enjoy. We want our guests to get outdoors and unplug. While we will provide all of the modern conveniences and luxuries of a five star hotel, everything from the property design to the amenities will encourage our guests to get out and enjoy the beauty of the region. <br><br> Campfires, S’mores , Hobo Pies , Kayaking, Fishing, Biking, Skiing, Boating, Wine tastings etc.. <br><br> Live®More ... text less.
Tracey Jordan purchased this House in 2014
Why Tracey Jordan chose Petoskey
We are often asked "Why did you choose this property on Walloon Lake?" . The truth is, there were a couple of other homes available around the lake that were already renovated. That said however, we were looking for a property with character & potential. It just had to "feel" right & Evermore was perfect. In need of significant renovation, we took the entire home down to it's studs & re-imagined everything including the foundation & crawl space. <br><br> Architecturally, the home was "right sized" and allowed us to go high end in every room. While large enough for family gatherings or small corporate retreats, the home is still quaint and regionally correct in it's architecture & style. <br><br> We also wanted to be sure we were on the North Arm of the lake. While the south arm has it's benefits, namely deeper waters & a hard packed natural sand shoreline, it can also get very congested & noisy. By contrast, the North Arm of Walloon Lake provides 10 min access to Petoskey, equal drive times to the region's three ski resorts & your own personal "On Golden Pond." <br><br> The waters of the North Arm of Walloon Lake are calm & peaceful. It's a tranquil part of the lake home to some of the area's best fishing , kayaking, paddle boarding & boating. The creek on Evermore's property continues to be a spawning site for smelt & other bait fish. Where the South Arm feels like spring break... the North Arm feels like being in a remote part of Alaska. We think it's the best of both worlds. <br><br> The outdoor intrigue didn't end there however as "Evermore" also included the 57 acre property directly behind the home. With it's five, lake view peaks, rolling hills, and historic apple orchard ( which still produces ) this natural playground is ideal for those interested in hiking, cross country skiing, Morel Mushroom hunting, wildlife viewing and more. It only took us one hike through this gorgeous property to make the decision. <br><br>

Wonderful Home for Families with Young Kids
This property is spectacular! Highly recommended for families!
Amazing home, owners and location. I have stayed here multiple times and already booked for next year.
Thanks so much and we can't wait to have you all back! Always a pleasure. Stunning Walloon Lake will be waiting for you :)
Fantastic home and week!
Gorgeous, comfortable home with everything needed for a wonderful week with family. Plenty of room for all. Beautiful surroundings and plenty to do at the house as well as in town. We already booked for next year.
We know how you feel! This home and surrounding area are truly magical. See you and yours next summer!
This was a great gathering place for our family with members ranging from 3 to 83! Wonderful setup both indoor and outdoor with plenty of open space and seating for family dinners, card playing, games of pool, and active outdoor games. The two paddle boards were a big hit with the kids. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Walloon Lake!
Beautiful house and well appointed. Great time with family and friends.
The property absolutely lived up to my expectations and in many instances - exceeded them. The owners went above-and-beyond to make this a seamless vacation for our 3 generation stay at their beautiful home. Love this place!
Thanks so much, We absolutely love " Evermore", Walloon lake and having such incredible families like yours stay. Making memories for three generations? you just can't beat that. We hope to see you and yours for years to come.
Forbes refers to the region as the "Hamptons of Michigan". National Geographic & USA Today have named it “The most beautiful place in America” & international attention has exploded with the opening of only the 9th International Dark Sky Park in the world. To say the region offers it’s guest’s unparalleled beauty and adventure is to put it far too simply.
Walloon Lake & the surrounding area including Petoskey offer unique four season adventures & scenery.
Petoskey is located on the shores of Lake Michigan's beautiful Little Traverse Bay in northwest lower Michigan. Long a resort area, Petoskey is known for its fresh air, spectacular beauty and, of course, Michigan's state stone, the Petoskey Stone.
This 6,000 person community nestled on the shores of Lake Michigan's Little Traverse Bay is a destination for visitors because it has so much to offer.
Charm? You bet! Petoskey's Gaslight District is the place to shop, walk, dine, and enjoy. Walk through the pedestrian tunnel to the beautiful waterfront park where you can watch the boats come into the marina or visit the Little Traverse History Museum.
And that is just in the summer. Petoskey is a four-seasons community packed with things to do. From beautiful fall foliage, to morel mushrooms in the spring, to the top three ski resorts in the Midwest including over 450 miles of state maintained snowmobile trails, we have it all. Winter activities are truly spectacular in the Petoskey area.
Located on the North Shore of Walloon Lake, Windemere was the childhood summer home of Ernest Hemingway. The house is still owned by the Hemingway family, and is home to one of Hemingway's nephews.
Here is a small sample of what others have to say about the region:
"The Ice Age was kind to northern Michigan, leaving in its wake an undulating landscape pocked by thousands of deep lakes carved by receding glaciers. Few, though, are as striking as Walloon Lake. Soil rich in calcium carbonate and clay, known as marl, casts the water a cerulean blue that would conjure the Caribbean were it not for the cedars, birches, and aspens that frame the nearly 30-mile shoreline. Its odd, paint-splat shape ensures that no view is the same; even longtime cottagers marvel at the difference in perspective from just a few doors down."
~ Margaret Loftus : National Geographic
“The Inland Waterway is not only one of Northern Michigan’s greatest attractions, but it is one of the most picturesque, and the only boat trip of its kind to be found on the American continent. Go where you will, wander where you may, you will find nothing that surpasses the scenic grandeur of this chain of lakes and rivers”
–”Where to Spend the Summer,” Conde’ Naste
"...The Headlands Dark Sky Park in Michigan is one of the best stargazing destinations in the United States... & "one of the few places in the continental USA to view the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights)."
