Property description

La Dolce Vita is the perfect home for a family getaway. One hundred feet of beautiful frontage on all-sports Long Lake with air conditioned, 3 Bedroom/2 Bathroom home with amazing lake views from every bedroom. Two bedrooms include queen-size beds. A king-size bed is in the master bedroom. All mattresses are new along with new bedding and linens. Extra beds include: a queen bed in the loft of the master (great for older children or teens) accessed by a ladder, a queen size sofa bed in the living room and two twin pull-out beds upstairs.

The home includes a very large living room with a lovely wood burning fireplace (firewood included) and expansive windows showcasing the beautiful water views. A new sixty inch tv with surround sound, premium cable with movie channels, and DVRs, are in every bedroom and the living room. There is a DVD/VHS player in the living room with a video and book library, plus board games for rainy day or evening fun. The full kitchen includes all major appliances, including dishwasher, pots and pans, spices, small appliances and everything you’ll need for the convenience of cooking a meal at home. La Dolce Vita also includes a Washer and Dryer. Enjoy the indoor hot tub for an evening soak. Children’s tub toys and water wings included.

Enjoy swimming, boating and fishing just outside the door! An expansive deck with deck furniture and outdoor dining table is terrific for a BBQ lunch or dinner on the natural gas grill. A fire pit and sitting area is located close to the water for making smores under the stars, firewood is included. The water is shallow at the shore with a hard bottom and the 120 foot dock provides a ladder to swim in the deeper water. A Peddle Boat and life vests are included. Two kayaks, one two person kayak, and two stand up paddleboards, all with paddles and life vests are also included for your week! Ask about our wonderful pontoon boat, that is also available for your use for the week at an additional charge. The sandy-bottom lake and sand bars provide excellent swimming spots. There are a variety of fish for afternoon family fishing fun: bluegill, bass, panfish, pike, muskie, walleye and perch. Boat to the connecting smaller Mickey Lake and the five islands. Three parks are very close to the home, with volleyball, basketball, walking track, and tennis courts available. The Grand Traverse Regional Land Conservancy allows public access to South Island in Long Lake and the Carter-Strong Bird Sanctuary on Ruth Lake.

It is an easy ten minute drive to downtown Traverse City or Interlochen Arts Academy. 15 minutes away from shopping, golfing, museums, beaches, and numerous restaurants. A 20 minute drive to Sleeping Bear Dunes, casinos and downhill skiing. Visiting Moomer’s Ice Cream is a must, just a five minute drive to 120 flavors, overlooking the dairy farm.

No Smoking. Sunday to Sunday rental for summer.
Taxes included.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We purchased this home because we love the area and life on the lake and someday hope this will be our retirement home. I grew up in the area, and after living and teaching in the Detroit area for fifteen years, am very glad I made the move back to Northern Michigan.

Why the Owner Chose Traverse City, MI, USA:
This home is perfect for a family vacation. It is in a quiet neighborhood on the lake, yet so close to the convenience of Traverse City. We started using VRBO after the birth of our daughter. We found it was much easier for us to vacation with a baby/small child when we had a full kitchen, laundry facility and our own private, quiet space. We hope other families will enjoy the Traverse City area and the amenities of our lake house.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the indoor hot tub and fireplace. Every night, after dinner, we make smores and have a dip in the hot tub before we go to bed. Our daughter thinks it is a special way to end the day...making memories.
