                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: I am a life-long Michigan resident who was fortunate enough to live in this area for several years. Not only is it beautiful with views at every turn, it's a great place to raise kids. Very safe and friendly.

                  Why the Owner Chose Long Lake:
                  I lived and worked in Traverse City for several years and found this location to be the best in the area. Close to the city, great lake that allows for many sports, close to skiing at Crystal Mountain and a great place to raise kids.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  This home looks like a cottage but has all the amenities of a full time home. You can't beat the view from the living room. Loons swim in front of house all summer and if you look up, you frequently see Bald Eagles soaring. Kayaking and waterskiing are favorite activities.
