Other Amenities

  • We are located one mile from a DNR launch site for your boats. The mentioned covered garage porch faces the lake for shaded viewing or coverage during inclement weather. Our cottage also has an excellent water source. Our well is at a depth of 130 feet which supplies a continuous source of clean water. The cottage is also serviced with an on demand water softener system which eliminates any hint of hard water. For those with children fishing from our dock along with minnow catching seem to be some of the many favorites that kids enjoy. The swimming is excellent offering a gradual grade to deeper water for those that are extra concerned about safety. At a distance of approximately 50 feet from shore the water depths average 6 to 8 feet. We have found our shore line to be perfectly suited to the beginner swimmer....moreless

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: We are Lapeer Michigan residents and have resided in our home for 28 years. We love lakefront living. Our three grandchildren love staying and swimming at our cottage on Long Lake. We are also lake front owners in Lapeer. My wife and I have been together for forty five years and love traveling in this beautiful state of Michigan.

Why the Owner Chose Alpena:
We purchased this property in 2001/2002. We promptly removed the old cottage and built a new custom cottage over the course of the following two years. We are attracted to the natural beauty and clean waters of Long Lake.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The unique view along with the beautiful location of the property on the lake was exactly what we were looking for during our search for a Long Lake cottage. Our road is a dead end which leads to little traffic. The lake shoreline offers a great opportunity for not only the view but also gave us excellent swimming. Our location is within a 20 minute ride of downtown Alpena which makes shopping and getting to restaurants a breeze.
