Property description

Beautiful Long Lake is one of Northwest Lower Michigan's best fishing and all-sports lakes. It is five miles long with sandy shores and five islands. We have two- 2 Bedroom cottages and we are located only 10 mi. from downtown Traverse City between TC and Interlochen.

Our resort, Birchwood Cove, offers a perfect spot for a family vacation in a park-like setting with mature oak, beech, and pine trees, a maintained lawn that goes all the way down to the beach and a quiet, private setting. The cove is a beautiful spot for relaxing and enjoying the sights and sounds of the lake and wildlife. Every year we enjoy a pair of nesting Loons, frogs, fish and turtles, cranes/herons flying across the lake and silhouetted in the sun-set, eagles, hawks and deer. There are numerous restaurants in the region, many within a few miles. Interlochen Arts Academy is 5 miles south of the resort.

One cottage can sleep 6 people, with two bedrooms and a pull-out sofa in the living room. The other cottage sleeps 8, and has a clothes washer and dryer. Beach amenities include fire-pit, dock, swim raft, row boat, shallow sandy beach in quiet cove. You may bring a boat and tie it to the dock. The beach front is shared between all rentals. Each cabin includes use of a charcoal grill and picnic table. Kitchens are fully-equipped including microwave and coffee pot. Linens and towels NOT included. We allow one well behaved, friendly pet at a fee of $70/week.
