About Goran Barac

I purchased this home as a vacation getaway for my family. As my children grew older we realized we were not using it often enough. That is when I decided to rent the property so other families can experience the fun. You will feel right at home as we did for many years.

Goran Barac purchased this house in 2005

Why Goran Barac chose Southwest

This is a quiet community nesteled in the woods. I fell in love with the lake and the nature while vacationing for many years at my friends house on the same lake.

What makes this house unique

No hustle and bustle with overcrowding on the lake. All sports lake. Huge (100X200 ft) fenced in yard facing the lake. Over sized deck. House has separation of bedrooms for quit time for the little ones. All amenities of your own home.

Great place for hanging out with friends

  • 5 of 5

This 5-bedroom house was perfect for our group! We are 5 middle-aged women who enjoyed hanging out on the deck, sunning with our chairs in the shallow water of the lake, and having our own bedrooms. There is a great eating area outside as well as a huge table in the kitchen. The house is spacious, the kitchen is well-equipped, and the two bathrooms both have showers with great water pressure and nice hot water. We did not plan to grill, but will do so on our next trip because the grill is very nice. Looking forward to a return visit :)

Coming out from California for the family reunion, great place to stay and enjoy. Even though on vacation, made big meals and the kitchen was accommodating. Fresh sheets and pillows and blankets for the beds and several bedrooms to choose from. Cabin quaintness with tongue and groove walls. Was raining a few days but enjoyed the pontoon boat and water activities. Close to liquor store and grocery store. Was very well priced for the area and worth it. We would stay again and from 4 years to Grandma, all enjoyed it! Thank you, the Altons, McCords, Smiths and James Families.

Ohio Family's Christmas gift

  • 4 of 5

This vacation home was a Christmas gift to ourselves, our children and grandchildren ,15 in all , 10 adults 5 kids plus 2 dogs. Boy was it worth the wait!!! The home was CLEAN, comfortable, and the lay out was just perfect for keeping an eye on the little ones, the top deck even had a gate that could be locked to help keep them corralled!! We rented the pontoon boat that is available ( I highly recommend this)and our sons and sons in law enjoyed fishing everyday. Chuck , neighbor and caretaker for this rental was absolutely wonderful ...any questions or concerns he was there ready to make sure we were happy and comfortable!! I would definitely recommend this home to anyone who wants to just kick back and relax, but don't think there isn't lots to do. Some in our group visited a nearby zoo, the classic car museum and even took the hour drive to the dunes! I personally liked just sitting on the beach watching the little ones play in the shallow, crystal clear water and of course work on my tan! This truly was a wonderful vacation for our family....who knows we may make it back!!

Perfect extended family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This lake cottage was absolutely perfect for our big family's vacation. It was all that we'd hoped for and more from the sandy beach to the perfect spread-out floor plan. The lake isn't really busy, even over Labor Day weekend, so it felt extra relaxed. The boat was so nice to have, which I highly recommend renting, especially for the price. The water is perfectly clear and the beach area was awesome for the kids. There was no stress for the adults when it came to keeping them entertained. They played all day long and slept hard at night. Everything in the house was clean and ready to be used. The water is well water so the only word of caution I would give would be not to wash any personal belongings that are light colored because of the rust. But, even that was no big deal:) Overall, fantastic, big house on a great lake with all you could possibly desire for a kicked-back vacation on the lake. The owner was superb to rent from. He responded in a timely manner and was very friendly and personable. Also enjoyed working with Chuck, the home's caretaker. He was helpful with the boat and so great to work with.

Hope we can make it back next year!!!

Great rental but yard was a swamp

  • 3 of 5

If the owner fixes the issues of water pumping into the yard, we would recommend this rental. The caretaker, who was awesome and very responsive, explained that the owner had just re-routed the sump pump drain into the yard. He came and saw how swampy it was and was shocked. It had rained a lot the week before our stay, leaving the yard unusable. This was a big disappointment for our stay since a majority of the property was unusable. Our kids were muddy every time they walked through the yard to get to the lake. It didn't rain during our week, but there was no way that yard was going to dry up. The pump went off every 15 minutes. We attempted to bring the issue to the owner's attention twice and asked for him to consider compensation for the issue and we have received no response back or any sort of apology.

Owner's Response: I can understand the guests frustration and inconvenience. It rained extremely hard for 2-3 weeks before this guests arrival. The ground got extremely saturated from the rain. There is nothing I could have done about that. The sum pump had to be re routed as an emergency measure to prevent the basement from flooding and damaging the water heater and air conditioning blower. It was re routed to an inconvenient location by the plumber. The area affected is very small (20' X 20'), although near the deck stairs. The remainder of the 100' X 150' yard was fully usable, but wet from the natural rain. The property also has a huge deck (50' X 16") for enjoyment. I do not feel there was enough hardship for compensation consideration. The sum pump has been re routed so it does not interfere with the yard or the property. It was an emergency situation which I dealt with in a reasonable amount of time.

Car: recommended

A great getaway. Situated about 25 miles northeast of Kalamazoo and 30 miles south east of Grand Rapids, you will feel like you are on your own private lake. Long Lake is about a 300 acre all sports lake (Speed boating/jet skiing/ water skiing/ tubing etc.). Visit locally owned berry farms, museums, golf or better yet, just stay and enjoy the lake. Beautiful lush forests surround the lake and stars light up the night sky. Enjoy a quiet evening next to your own bonfire.

Other Activities: Boating.
