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 Traverse City

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.

christmas 2007 in traverse city, michigan

  • 5 of 5

we spent our 2007 christmas vacation at the house. we had a beautiful white christmas. the house is beautiful. the view of the lake. the snow covered pine trees. the big beautiful windows in the living room allowed us to display our fresh cut 10' blue spruce christmas tree. the trip to downtown traverse city was very convenient and quick. we loved our stay and will be back again.

Exeptional View!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented the house for wedding festivities in TC. House is located about 20 min drive from the heart of TC, close to Meijer to get groceries. It was very accommodating for 6 of us with our 14month old grandson and plenty of room for more. We absolutely loved sitting on the porch and enjoying the beautiful view of Mickey lake!! The only thing I would point out, cleaning crew has to do better job cleaning the house; it was quite a bit of dust, especially on knickknacks, lamps etc... and the house could use a little upgrade when it comes to carpets. Sheets were clean, beds were comfortable and kitchen had everything we needed. We had a great time and would definitely recommend the house! The owners were very nice and responsive. I wish we had a little better weather to spend more time outside on the porch :-) Thank you! We loved it! Anna

Wouldn't go back

  • 3 of 5

I hate writing a bad review, but I feel I should give some balance to the others. Yes, the lake view and deck are spectacular. The lake is quiet and private. However, the home seemed dirty. The drains in the master were extremely slow , so we used the basement shower most of the time. We were left 1 garbage bag, a 1/3 of a role of paper towels. We ended up purchasing supplies that other VRBO's have supplied us in the past. The patio by the fire pit was crumbling in small pieces. It just didn't seem kept up. Lots of large cob webs on deck, grill was dirty. The kitchen and architecture are very nice, but The home needs some attention. We did try to contact owners about a window that wouldn't close, and drainage. Maybe they never got it. The other issues were just too monumental to address. All else went fine. It would be difficult to find a better and more private lake view.

Mesmerizing Week on Mickey Lake

  • 5 of 5

All the conveniences and comfort of home nestled in a heavenly location. We appreciated the decor and all the love that was poured into this home. It seemed like every room was a conversation piece. The fire pit was a bonus on the cool evenings and the view was mesmerizing!!!! We took advantage of the grill and made a fantastic dinner and ate sitting on the deck!! I cook a lot at home and certainly appreciated the quality of the food in the local restaurants. We set well!! Anyway, we enjoyed our stay and would certainly consider a return visit!!
