About Dwayne and Mariana Behrens

Hello, we are the Behrens family and I am Dwayne, my wife is Mariana and our daughter’s name is Mia.

I was born a raised in Michigan and I have loved Traverse City ever since my family vacations there when I was young. As kids we fished and swam in the lakes, climbed sleeping bear dunes and terrorized the town on our pedal bikes like normal kids. Traverse City has never lost that small town feeling of my childhood, it is a place where childhood memories are made. When we purchased our home in Traverse City, my childhood dreams became an adult reality. My fun list as a family is about the same as when I was young but now as an adult couple, we love to go wine tasting and relax on the deck with friends and a glass of wine or spend a day boating on the lake. Traverse City is a place where childhood memories are made and family and adult fun continues. Start your memories today by booking your vacation with us.

Dwayne and Mariana Behrens purchased this house in 2006

Why Dwayne and Mariana Behrens chose Northern Michigan

The moment you arrive, you’ll know you’ve found home. This is our promise. From immaculate luxury accommodations, include master suite Jacuzzi and two stone fireplaces. The sounds of loons serenading you as you look out at the lake and the Traverse City area will inspire all who visit each and every time you stay with us.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Mariana - Our stay at your lovely cabin.



First, we had a wonderful time. It was great seeing our son, cooking together and experiencing snow!



We don't do snow in New Orleans and our little one was able to play in it safely on your deck and that was a real plus.



The fireplace was cozy and we appreciated the firewood that was available.



We LOVED our stay and were so happy to be here.



Thanks again!



Sincerely,

Nancy C.

Beautiful Home on Mickey Lake

  • 5 of 5

What a great home! We (four couples) had a perfect stay! Everything was nicely decorated and the owners provided everything that we could have possibly needed. The owners were great to work with and they were quick to respond to all questions. The home is at a great location; quiet and peaceful. The home was clean and the basement rec area was perfect for 8 people. "Claude" the Butler was a major focal point for some entertainment. We all are looking forward to next year!

Best Vacation Home for a Honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

What a great vacation home! My husband and I came and stayed March 14-20, 2016 for our honeymoon. The house is amazing! High ceilings with big glass windows overlooking the lake frontage was a site every morning and evening. We had the pleasure of eating in and going out during our stay. The kitchen was beautiful and had everything needed to cook our meals. Our favorite features were the view out the master room doors in the morning at the lake, the views of the lake out of every room really...also the butler statue (he is sneaky). I personally enjoyed being so close to everything. Very short drives to go wine tasting, the casinos, downtown TC. Because we had chilly weather as expected this time of the year we didn't get to enjoy more outdoors...however Remember Your Spirit will be our first choice to come back and stay. Staying in a hotel is no longer an option when we enjoyed a full week of peace and serenity in this beautiful vacation home. Thank you for allowing us to pleasure of enjoying your home.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Remember your spirit is a fantastic place to vacation with friends or curl up for a weekend alone with that someone special. We had such a great time here. The house is just beautiful. You feel like you are in Italy. They have everything you could of think. Even a popcorn maker. The view here is spectacular!!! I could sit on the porch drinking coffee at sunrise forever. But we all know you can't. So you get up and go. Because why not go explore down town Traverse City. Your close. Go eat at the restaurant . Go to the casino. Explore a beautiful city. The accommodations back at the house are amazing. Beautifully decorated bedrooms. And bathrooms. You will sleep peacefully. And before bed, Make sure to enjoy the spa tub. I most definitely will be returning to Remember your Spirit. Thank you for opening up your home for all to enjoy.

Jessica.
