wonderful vacation home
wonderful vacation home
My family and our dog had a wonderful vacation at this lovely house. We especially loved the multi level deck. We spent most evenings on the deck watching the sunset. The house was just as pictured and had all that we required. We took advantage of the row boat as well as the paddle boat which were provided.

About the owner: We are three sisters that now own the house jointly after inheriting it. This was our family home with lots of great memories. One sister, Karin, is a local resident who resides in the house part of the year. Karin is stays in the small cabin on property in summer-fall apx 100ft away making it convenient for guest to reach her with any concerns. If she goes anywhere it is usually to friends nearby on the lake or lake michigan but always has her phone with her! Her assistant is also 3 miles away.
Why the Owner Chose Traverse City:
The south end of the lake is has minimal activity and has the best view of beautiful sunsets. It is conveniently located close to Interlochen and Traverse City. Neighbors are very nice.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We don't hire property managers and live elsewhere. We are owners who have lived here many years and know details about the house. Over the years there have been many guests here and we love sharing the experience of Long Lake and this area with others. With this in mind, the decision to offer it as a vacation rental is the perfect solution to afford keeping it in our family for generations and share it with new friends. We want to provide a vacation to our guests as though they are guests of our own. (We can tell you where and when to find a secluded spot on a stretch of Lake Michigan beach) This is only our second season so we welcome any comments you have!
