ALL the beds, sheets, pillows, etc are brand new for Summer 2017.

We also spent the winter updating both living rooms, installed all new faux hardwood flooring throughout the main floor and basement. Brand new large Single Bowl "farm" sink, and all new stainless steel GAS Stove.

We've also ordered all new furniture for the living room, and a new dining room table. It won't be delivered until early May, so we will update the pictures the second its all delivered.

4 King Beds, and 8 Twins. We also have a full size pull out couch in the basement family room, and a second Full size pull out in the basement bedroom.

In Beds, we can sleep 16. If you add the two pull out couches 18-20. FOUR full baths, all with showers, 2 of them have separate tub and shower.


I grew up on Long Lake, and my entire family lives on the lake. If you've never been to Long Lake, it's one of the premier lakes! Very few "Day" Boaters, crystal clear spring fed lake! If your able to rent a boat, you'll be shocked at its size.

5 Miles long North to South (this home is on the very south end of the lake, the only public launches are on the north end) And just over 2 miles wide. 5 Islands, lots to explore.

We purchased our forever home on the Lake 2 years ago. We weren't ready to move at the time, so we rented it out. It was so popular, we decided to purchase a dedicated rental property.

This home is RIGHT on the water. Most common question we receive....is there a beach. YES, Its ALL beach. You step out of the door on the lake level, and its sand. Long Lake is MUCH cleaner then Torch Lake (most people seem to have experience on Torch). Its on Par with Lake Charlevoix, Leelanau, or Glen Lake. Very sandy bottom, and a nice gradual slope. Our dock is 120ft long, and its normally just shy of 6ft deep at the end (depends on lake level for the year).

Please watch the video, this is a VERY unique floor plan, and perfect for a lake home. We we're very lucky to obtain this property.

When you walk in the main floor, you'll find a Fridge in the Entry way that can be used for beverages, and overflow items (there's also a normal fridge in the kitchen).

Main floor has a large living room, Big open Kitchen with an Island. We just refinished the cabinets in a dark grey, with stainless hardware. Large dining room, seats 12. Flat Screen TV over the fireplace.

Off the kitchen there is a huge outside deck with two large tables (why eat inside when your this close to the lake) and a BBQ. My Favorite feature of this home, is the enclosed porch that runs the whole length of the living room. You can sit inside this screened area at night, listen to the water, AND its right above the fire pit, so your not away from the action.

Main floor also has a full Bath with a separate Tub and Shower, as well as 2 beds, each with a King Size Bed.

Upstairs, we have the formal master bedroom, King Size Bed, with a large private bath. This bath ALSO has a separate Tub and Shower.

The other two bedrooms on the 2nd floor are for the Kids. Both have 2 sets of Bunk Beds (4 twins per room) for a total of 8 twin beds .... with a full bathroom between them.

If you head from the main floor downstairs, you find a walk out basement. A 2nd family room, again with a fireplace (refinished from the one you see in the pics, the ugly cast iron stove is gone), with a Flat Screen TV. We've redrywalled the family room, and added a great engineered floor. There's a door direct to the lake, open it up, take 2 big steps, and your in the lake.

There's another bedroom with a King Bed and a Full size Pull out Couch. There is a full bathroom on this level as well.

Brand new Washer and Dryer on site as well.

Our lake has very few day boaters by design. The public launch only allows for a few trailers to be parked, to keep non residents off the lake. Amazing views! And a very unique property.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2015

About: We purchased our forever home 2 years ago, and rented it prior to moving into it permanently. We had such an overwhelming response, we decided to purchase a 2nd home on the lake. I grew up on Long Lake, and my entire family lives around the lake.

Why Traverse City, MI, USA:
If your not familiar, this is thee cleanest lake in the Traverse City area. There are very few homes for rent, and only 2 or 3 of this size. The lake is 6 miles long just over 2 miles wide, and has 5 Islands. This home looks towards the north, the long way down the lake. So you have some of the best views on the lake, and incredible sunsets.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is the only 6 Bed 3 Bath home, that sits directly at the lake level, available for rent. The other couple of homes require walks down stairs, or slopes to reach the waters edge. Since the home is so close to the water, you have the best views, as the homes on the left and right are set farther back. Two Living rooms is very convenient for large groups, and allows everyone to have their own space.
