About Elizabeth Tuckermanty
The owners are Dale Manty and Elizabeth Tuckermanty. Dale grew up in Michigan and has brought the family “up north” for vacations every year since he left. Chirstmas vacations were filled with cross country skiing and winter fun and summers were filled with berry picking, hiking and swimming. Dale has family in the Upper Peninsula and down state as well. Omena House has been a perfect family reunion spot. Since acquiring Omena House in 2003 they are eager for other families to enjoy this very special house.
Elizabeth Tuckermanty purchased this House in 2003
Why Elizabeth Tuckermanty chose Omena
We chose to buy our vacation home in Omena because, we love the Grand Traverse Bay area and the “Up-North” experiences it brings us. We love floating in the beautiful lake water; canoeing quiet streams, sailing on the open bay, harvesting the fruit and vegetable bounty either from U-Pick farms or farmers’ markets. This beautiful area needs to be shared with other families looking for time to be together. We felt this is a welcoming place and should be shared.
What makes this House unique
When we are up in Omena we love to relax on the beach, walk to the “Knot-Just-A-Bar” restaurant, visit the wineries and even just drive around beautiful Leelanau peninsula. Often summer mornings we load up our pails and go to U-Pick farms and pick strawberries, blueberries and raspberries. The afternoon is taken freezing whole berries and making freezer jam to take home and bring the summer back all year long. We go to farmers’ markets and gather the best in local food and cook together as a family. We love driving around the lakes edge and going through the beautiful rural landscape inland from Omena. Most of all, we enjoy being together and playing games with our daughters and their husbands. We have been known to have a bonfire and s’more roasting on New Year’s Eve.

There were 11 of us that stayed here for a bachelorette weekend. There was plenty of space for everyone. We loved the enclosed porch most of all!
House is large & comfortable for large group or family gathering , all amenities available, I would just suggest upgrading sheets , pillows & some comforters, some things seem old & very dated .But house was great was in town for family wedding .
Wonderful and amazing place!
It was all it said and much more! Beautiful house, excellent lay out for a large group. The two kitchens and living rooms as well as the outside deck was such a treat! It was quiet and stocked with everything I could imagine to need. Mark was great and easy to get ahold of. Everyone raved about the house and the location and how much they enjoyed it. I have only good things to say! Thanks!
The Omena House was a grand place for our family reunion .....accomodating the needs of a variety of ages. It was neat and tidy when we arrived and we found the appointments , etc. in the kitchens and baths top notch. There were lots of smiles and laughter during our stay. Thank you.
Great place for a family getaway
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Omena house. We were there for a family vacation.The house was spacious with many areas to gather so you really never felt crowded. There were 22 of us and that included 6 children.
The beach area was small but we really made the best of it and in the end it was perfect.
The quaint towns around the house had many things to do also.
Contacting the owner was easy and quick. The caretaker was very pleasant and had lots of stories and recomandations for things to do in the area.
I would really recommend this property.
We are delighted that you enjoyed Omena House. We hope you return!
