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

This place is fantastic
The house is beautiful. The old saying "you get what you pay for" and you will certainly get your $$ worth here! Wonderful location with an exquisite view of Long Lake. Very quiet neighbors in what seems to be a very safe neighborhood. Driving distance to Traverse City is maybe 10-15 minutes tops. We drove all over the place to the Maritime Museum in the UP and also to Frankenmuth. Both are quite a drive from here but this house was so nice to come home to. The fishing was great. Don't bother with artificial lures on this lake. Go over to the Long Lake Grocery store and buy some night crawlers. The bass and bream will destroy your hooks all day right off the pier. Hope to come back someday!
Beautiful home with a great view.
Favorite part of the home was the view from the living room - very open with natural light looking out onto the lake. There was plenty of room for 12 people to stay for a couple nights. There was a ton of art in the home that sparked conversation which is always fun and the area was beautiful. Overall had a very nice time staying in this home.
Excellent time at Mickey Lake
The house is as beautiful as advertised and no-wake Mickey Lake is perfect if you have small children (or grandchildren) getting their first lake experience. With the upper and lower decks and the many windows both upstairs and downstairs, there was always a great view of the lake. Location is very convenient for day trips to Leland (and the wine tastings), Sleeping Bear dunes, Petosky and all the other great towns near Traverse City. Very enjoyable.
Wonderful for family gathering
We stayed at the lakefront home for a family reunion June 2018. The house is well appointed and the large back decks and fire pit area were perfect for gathering in the evening and catching up after days of enjoying the TC area. The location provides easy access to Traverse and Old Mission Peninsula, Sleeping Bear, and Interlochen.
While the water access is more suitable for viewing than swimming the views of Mickey Lske are serene and the little kids enjoyed fishing from the dock.
The home itself is well appointed and eclectic and the hosts very helpful! Very comfortable, gracious hosts, beautiful lake views, great for our reunion.
What a peaceful, pleasant surprise.
Very, very nice Italian-themed cottage with an exceptional location on a loon-filled quiet lake. Sitting on the deck in early morning or evening and simply listening to the loons calling each other was so pleasing. Exceptionally clean and well-equipped, my entire family had an exceptional experience. Recommended for anyone.
Great size for our group!
This was a great house for a girls weekend. We had 11 girls that fit comfortably in the house. Views were great despite some late season snow. Would have liked a little clearer path to the house as it did get slippery. Was slightly worried about the location as we were doing wine tours and downtown activities but we were able to get taxis and transportation without any issues.
