Hosted by Cornerstone was constructed by a local building company, Cornerstone Homes TC. The team envisioned a management company that would provide exceptional service to each guest, along with staying at the perfectly built vacation rental. We pride ourselves in being detail-oriented and are dedicated to bringing every guest a concierge-style experience. Our mission is to deliver a quality vacation stay that leaves lasting memories and a desire to return to Hosted by Cornerstone properties.  


Jessica - Property Manager


I moved up to Northern Michigan in 2015 to join my Traverse City native husband and start our family. Together with our two boys, we are discovering all that Northern Michigan has to offer. Each new phase of life brings us new places to explore and to add to our local guidebook.


If you stay with us, rest assured you will be well taken care of. We love connecting with our guests, helping them celebrate any reason for coming to TC and making them feel at home in our rentals.


Amanda Makowski - Owner

Amanda is a Traverse City native with a passion for improving the quality of properties in her local community and creating tranquil retreats where friends and family can gather. "My husband and I have four young children, which can make staying in hotel rooms pretty cramped and uncomfortable. If you've ever tried getting a toddler to nap in the same room as their siblings, you know what I mean! So I started brainstorming how to make traveling more relaxing and a better experience for families and friends to get together, especially in such a beautiful place as northern Michigan. The solution? I invest in single family vacation rentals, giving families the space to spread out, and friends an opportunity to meet up and vacation together. The properties that I offer are close to the best parts of northern Michigan, so guests spend less time in the car and more time enjoying the water, parks, eateries and wineries that make this place so unique and rejuvenating."


When you stay at one of our properties, know that you aren't lining the pockets of someone in a stuffy suit across the country. Instead, you are supporting a group of young, female entrepreneurs raising their families locally, who are excited to share with you this beautiful place they call home.
