Property description

A modern home, with the main living quarters on second floor, gives a treehouse view of Long Lake and the woods. The home is located on the North end of Long Lake, on the edge of a 40-acre mixed pine and hardwood forest--great for hiking when you are tired of swimming or fishing!

The home has a large living/dining area, with a front deck off the living room. The four bedrooms have a double bed (front), twin beds (back), double bed (lower bedroom), and two single beds and a futon in front lower family room. A hide-a-bed is also available in the living room. The modern kitchen has a double sink, electric stove, full-size refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, as well as dishes, cookware, and utensils provided.

The property has 400 feet of private frontage with a dock. Rowboat available. Excellent fishing, boating, and swimming. The property is adjacent to additional 600' frontage owned by cousin, insuring uncrowded privacy and sense of seclusion not obtained on most waterfront lots.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1905

About the owner: I was originally from Charleston, Ill, and attended school at the Eastern Illinois State College (now University) Lab School. Our family moved to Ann Arbor when I was in Jr. Hi, and completed school there. I attended college then joined the Air Force. I settled in Traverse City in 1970, lliving in my grandparents Traverse City home, whch we now own. I worked at Interlochen Center for the Arts, WPBN-TV, and finally Munson Medical Center. I am now retired.

Why the Owner Chose Traverse City:
The property was purchased by grandfather for $250 in 1905. It originally contained log cabin, which burned in mid 1930's. A WWII vintage Quonset hut was built after the war in that location as a summer cottage for family use. The rental home was build by my parents as retirement home in 1970. Our family vacationed at Long Lake all my life, and we love it!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The second floor main living area gives a 'Treehouse' view of the lake and woods. The lake has a nice sandy bottom with no weeds or rocks, so it is a great place to swim. We now have an 'L' shaped dock extention, which is a great place to fish from or to just sit and enjoy the lake For those who like to hike, there are 40 acres to roam on.
