Our Story

Welcome to the Grey Hare Inn. We are the Dykes family, and we are thrilled that you chose to stay with us in the heart of beautiful Old Mission Peninsula. As your hosts we love getting to know you, so we thought you would like to know a little bit about our family too. 


Sarah is a northern Michigan native, and Dereck was born and raised in Houston Texas. They married in 2012 and together the two have thrived in the hospitality and real estate business. Their unparalleled work ethic, entrepreneurial spirit, and boundless energy have led them to starting several small businesses over the years Including owning and operating bars and restaurants in the south and working as full time realtors here in Traverse City.  


They both love meeting new people, enjoy fitness, live a healthy lifestyle & do any and everything outdoors. In the summer they love to take their paddle boards on the bay, or go for a hike at their favorite spot, Pyramid Point. 


When you arrive at the Grey Hare you will be greeted by Sarah, Dereck, and their sweet yorkie Bella who call the Inn their home. They’re always very excited to meet new guests and to give them the best customer experience that they can provide. Their warm personalities, love of people, and compassion for their job make them a perfect fit to be your hosts.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email or give them a call. They are happy to help and look forward to welcoming you to the Grey Hare Inn.
