"My family and I stayed here for 4 days. The cabin was cute and clean. Perfect size for our family of 4. We enjoyed the lake and the ability to take our ORV out on the trails. The lake was clean, yet still a little chilly. No problems with hot water or water pressure. Had a great vacation and plan on staying again sometime."

"This place is so spacious and comfortable, I didn't want to leave. We had a group of 15 and there was plenty of room for everyone. The kitchens were well equipped and it was easy to cook a nice meal for a large crowd with two of everything. It was nice having the washer and dryer, especially with kids. We loved the huge covered deck with ceiling fans and large tables and chairs. The view was amazing and we even saw an eagle as we sipped our coffee on the deck one morning. The lodge is clean and beautifully decorated. I liked that one side of the lodge was nautical themed and the other side was woodsy themed. Everything was perfect. The beds were comfortable and there was a nice breeze provided by the large window in each bedroom. I loved the ceiling fans in every bed room too. We all took showers and didn't run out of hot water. The lodge was certainly built with comfort, convenience and character in mind.
Long Lake is clean and clear with lots of fish. The best ones we caught were right off our own dock. We swam and thoroughly enjoyed being on the lake 24/7. The back yard is spacious and we set up a volley ball net. We also enjoyed the ping pong table in the basement. It was nice being able to spread out, if some wanted to play a board game and others wanted to watch a movie. I liked that two of the bedrooms and bathrooms were on the main floor for my elderly parents that can't maneuver stairs.
We would love to make the long lake lookout lodge an annual place to gather every year. It certainly is a home away from home in every aspect. Can't wait to go again!"

"We came down for a family reunion and stay at Jim and Kerren's place. It was perfectly clean. Beautifully decorated. Plenty of room. I did a lot of cooking in the kitchen and all went well. It was very peaceful and quiet. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a nice relaxing getaway. It was also decorated so cute...loved it. Jim is so responsive and helpful. We also ventured out to Lumberman's Monument and East Tawas Harbor and the lighthouse. Very fun. The area is perfect."

"We just returned from the cottage in Hale, MI, and are ready to go back! The cottage was lovely, yet very comfortable. It was the perfect place for a week-long unwind. We used the pontoon boat twice a day, floating/cruising around the lake was fabulous and very relaxing. We had campfires and s’mores at night and beautiful sunrises over the lake. Everything we needed was there, from forks for roasting marshmallows to a great coffee pot to a washer and dryer. There were chairs around the campfire, a table and chairs on the deck, lounge chairs on the lawn – did I mention that this is the place to relax? Paul is a fantastic host and so very easy to work with. We are looking forward to next summer already!"
