Owner info

Year Purchased: 1977

About the owner: This was our family home with lots of great memories. I reside in the house part of the year. I stay in the small cabin on property during rental season, over 100ft away making it convenient for guests to reach me with any concerns, yet respecting privacy of guests.

Why the Owner Chose Traverse City, MI, USA:
Quiet area of the lake with sunset views and it is conveniently located close to Interlochen and Traverse City. Home is well appointed. Neighbors are very nice.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home has been in the family for 35 years so we take pride in managing it ourselves and introducing visitors to the area. We know all the details about the house and the surrounding areas. Over the years there have been many guests here and we love sharing the experience of Long Lake with others. With this in mind, the decision to offer it as a vacation rental is the perfect solution to afford keeping it in our family for generations and share it with new friends. We want to provide a vacation experience to our guests as though they are guests of our own family.
