About the Property
Beautiful two bedroom waterfront home on a clear Michigan lake
The house is right on beautiful Long Lake, one of Northern Michigan's most popular lakes for fishing, swimming and boating with crystal clear water. The house has a dock and a large deck looking over the water. The house is secluded; the nearest neighbor is more than one hundred yards away, hidden by the trees. The property has more than 200 feet on the water.
The house features two bedrooms and two bathrooms. There are two queen beds, two single beds and two day beds. The living room is large and spacious, with a cathedral ceiling. The eat-in kitchen is fully equipped. The house has hardwood floors throughout. Outside there is a new gas grill and fire pit.
There is a canoe for your use, along with paddles and life jackets. You can also bring a boat; we provide a mooring and there is a boat launch across the lake. There are public tennis courts within walking distance. There are also islands in the lake that you can explore, many with lovely beaches.
The area has much to offer. The house is fifteen minutes from Traverse City, a lively and pretty town with shopping and festivals. Interlochen Music Camp, the Sleeping Bear Dunes, the Platte River, and Michigan's finest wine country are all close by.
Some comments from recent guests:
'This is the fifth year in a row that my family has rented a cabin. Each year we pick a different Michigan location. Everyone agreed that this was the best cabin ever. It was perfect.'
'Had a great time!!! Caught 17 walleye, 3 nice pike and the largest small mouth bass I've ever caught. Great drives every day, awesome campfires and just all in all...a great time.'

Northern Michigan is a vacation paradise. Traverse City is a charming town with cute shops. The area is full of beautiful inland lakes, as well as spectacular Lake Michigan and the Sleeping Bear Dunes.
At the house, you can swim in the clear waters of Long Lake, lay in the sun, paddle around the lake (canoe and row boat provided) and hike. There are five islands in Long Lake; they are all public and perfect for exploring and picnics. Long Lake has great fishing, too.
There are attractions near by. The Sleeping Bear Dunes is twenty minutes away. The Platte and Boardman Rivers are great for canoeing. There are wineries, bike trails, Leland (a cute fishing village), hiking opportunities. It is a wonderful area.
Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: We purchased the property more than a decade ago and have been renting it since then. Our family has owned property and vacationed on Long Lake for more than eighty years. We own and preserve the nearby woods. Loon Lodge is a special retreat.
Why the Owner Chose Traverse City, Michigan, United States of America:
Traverse City is a wonderful vacation area. There are all sorts of things to do in the area, though we often just want to spend our days enjoying the lake.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home has three very special features. First, it is right on Long Lake, a spectacular northern Michigan lake. The water is clear and the sunsets are beautiful. The lake is great for swimming and boating. Second, the house is very private. It is nestled in deep woods on a huge lot with lots of lakefront. Third, the house is near Traverse City, so while it feels like you are really away from it all in the deep Michigan woods, you can get to a store quickly if you run out of flour or want to go to a movie.
