About Jami Natale
We have been married 15 years and have lived in 3 different states. Michigan is a beautiful place to live and the place we hope to call home for many years to come. We enjoy outdoor activities such as biking, walking and exploring. Traverse City is one of our favorite places to explore. The winery and brewery tours are also one our favorite activities to do in Traverse City. We love all of the festivals that Traverse hosts throughout the summer, and highly recommend attending if one is in town. Being an Italian family, we also love to eat, and Traverse City has some wonderful restaurants with outstanding food and spirits.
Jami Natale purchased this House in 2015
Why Jami Natale chose Traverse City
We immediately fell in love with this property from the moment we walked in and saw the gorgeous view of Long Lake from the windows. Having access to Long Lake just steps from the house was very appealing, and the fact that the water is shallow near the house so we could easily swim and play was very exciting. We enjoy drinking our coffee on the terrace in the morning and making smores by the firepit at night. The sound of Loones is so calming and fishing off the dock is a favorite family pastime. The home is so cozy and inviting and the upgrades throughout the house allow us the conveniences of home.

Beautiful 5-star home in perfect Up North location
Perfectly appointed home was comfortable, upscale and perfect for our family vacation. The layout of the house is perfect for multiple families, and the prime spot on Long Lake makes for breathtaking views. Everything was clean and in perfect working order. By far the best vacation house we've ever rented. We can't wait to return next year!
We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay! Thank you so much for taking the time to review our home. We would love to have you back next year!
What a beautiful vacation home!
We had such an amazing time at this beautiful home right on Long Lake. What a treat waking up every morning to the most amazing view of the water. We came up here with our entire family for a week long vacation, there were 10 of us total, and the house could not have been more perfect and accommodating. We boated and kaiacked everyday and the lake was warm and gorgeous to explore. We will be back!
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at Long Lake Escape! We'd love to have you back for a future stay. Thank you!
A slice of heaven!!
Absolutely beautiful accommodations on the best part of Long Lake!!
Thank you for staying with us! We're so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay! We'd love to have you back in the future!
Great place to stay!
Thanks so much for letting us enjoy your beautiful home and the lovely views from the back patio and deck! We had a wonderful time on our first visit to Michigan. Traverse City and the surrounding peninsulas, towns, National Park, etc... were very enjoyable. The house itself had everything we needed, and enough space for three couples to stay comfortably.
Charming luxury in a rustic setting --- the best of both worlds!
Everything was very clean and ready for us on our arrival. The house is very much like a mini-mansion in the suburbs but right on the water. Neighbors were very quiet and if you wanted to go shopping or out for a meal, it was a short, easy drive. Some truly awesome restaurants right in your backyard. Fine dining, not all you can eat for five bucks. The world's best ice cream is located right around the corner (not sure who made that call but that's what they say) as well as dozens of other very difffernt restaurants. This is truly a foodie Mecca. But the house made it all worthwhile. Laid out for privacy OR group activities, this is one well thought out home! And the owners were dreams when a question about operating something arose. There is literally nothing to do but come in, put your feet up and relax. Or if you like to play in the water, it's crystal clear and inches away. Two kayaks for your boating pleasure.
Beautifully appointed without feeling fussy, you could relax for hours indoors, on one of several terraces, or on the lawn along the beach. The garden is in full bloom with black eyed susans, purple things I don't know the names of, hostas, and too many other plants to mention. This time of year, local produce stands tempt you with just picked freshness.
The kayak was easy to launch and SO relaxing. We wish we had booked a longer stay but life interferes. Next year, I suspect we'll be right back here, chillin'. If the farm I grew up on was remotely like this, I never would have left!
It's truly a luxury home, very soothing and relaxing!
The home is even better than photos represent it. The lake and the surrounding area offers so much to do or just relax at the lovely home. We enjoyed kayaking, sunsets on the dock or multiple decks, a fire pit or fireplace at night, big screen movies, cookouts, and just being on the lake listening to the loons or floating in the water.
The house is beautifully decorated and appointed. We had no noise from neighbors or speed boats.
The host is very reachable and responded quickly to any questions we had.
I highly recommend this VRBO to anyone interested in a large luxury home!
