Property description

Beautiful Long Lake is one of Northwest Lower Michigan's best fishing and all-sports lakes. It is five miles long with sandy shores and five islands. 2 Bedroom cottages located only 10 mi. from downtown Traverse City between TC and Interlochen. In the summer we rent from Saturday to Saturday.

Our resort, Birchwood Cove, offers a perfect spot for a family vacation in a park-like setting with mature oak, beech, and pine trees, a maintained lawn that goes all the way down to the beach and a quiet, private setting. The cove is a beautiful spot for relaxing and enjoying the sights and sounds of the lake and wildlife. Every year we enjoy a pair of nesting Loons, frogs, fish and turtles, cranes/herons flying across the lake and silhouetted in the sun-set, eagles, hawks and deer. There are numerous restaurants in the region, many within a few miles. Interlochen Arts Academy is 5 miles south of the resort.

Many new updates for 2016 include new dock, new tile flooring in the dining room, new countertop, new kitchen sink and faucet, new Air Conditioning!

The cottage can sleep 6 people, with two bedrooms and a convertible sofa in the living room. Beach amenities include fire-pit, dock, swim raft, row boat, shallow sandy beach in quiet cove. You may bring 1 boat and tie it to the dock. The beach front is shared between all rentals. Each cabin includes use of a charcoal grill and picnic table. Kitchens are fully-equipped including microwave and coffee pot. Linens and towels NOT included.
