LONG LAKE WATERFRONT HOME

Traverse City House Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful two bedroom waterfront home on a clear Michigan lake

Loon Lodge is a secluded lakefront home just minutes from the bustle of Traverse City. It is perfect for families and for people looking to get away and relax.

The house is right on beautiful Long Lake, one of Northern Michigan's most popular lakes for fishing, swimming and boating with crystal clear water. The house has a dock and a large deck looking over the water. The house is secluded; the nearest neighbor is more than one hundred yards away, hidden by the trees. The property has more than 200 feet on the water.

The house features two bedrooms and two bathrooms. There are two queen beds, two single beds and two day beds. The living room is large and spacious, with a cathedral ceiling. The eat-in kitchen is fully equipped. The house has hardwood floors throughout. Outside there is a new gas grill and firepit.

There is a canoe and row boat for your use, along with paddles and life jackets. You can also bring a boat; we provide a mooring and there is a boat launch across the lake. There are public tennis courts within walking distance. There are also islands in the lake that you can explore, many with lovely beaches.

The area has much to offer. The house is fifteen minutes from Traverse City, a lively and pretty town with shopping and festivals. Interlochen Music Camp, the Sleeping Bear Dunes, the Platte River, and Michigan's finest wine country are all close by.

Some comments from recent guests:

'This is the fifth year in a row that my family has rented a cabin. Each year we pick a different Michigan location. Everyone agreed that this was the best cabin ever. It was perfect.'

'Had a great time!!! Caught 17 walleye, 3 nice pike and the largest smallmouth bass I've ever caught. Great drives every day, awesome campfires and just all in all...a great time.'

We purchased the property more than a decade ago and have been renting it since then. Our family has owned property and vacationed on Long Lake for more than eighty years. We own and preserve the nearby woods. Loon Lodge is a special retreat in the woods.

Tim Calkins purchased this house in 2000

Traverse City is a wonderful vacation area. There are all sorts of things to do in the area, though we often just want to spend our days enjoying the lake.

Our home has three very special features.

First, it is right on Long Lake, a spectacular northern Michigan lake. The water is clear and the sunsets are beautiful. The lake is great for swimming and boating.

Second, the house is very private. It is nestled in deep woods on a huge lot with lots of lakefront.

Third, the house is near Traverse City, so while it feels like you are really away from it all in the deep Michigan woods, you can get to a store quickly if you run out of flour or want to go to a movie.

Loon Lodge Love

My husband and I rented this cabin with another couple (along with our respective dogs). Loon Lodge provided the perfect experience for us. I have traveled to Northern Michigan every summer since my days as an Interlochen camper but this was my first experience on Long Lake. It is a very clear and beautiful lake and the cabin provides an excellent viewpoint for the most picturesque sunsets. The cabin is rustic and charming and set quite deep into the woods and away from the main road. This was important to us so that the dogs could enjoy their vacation too! Although the fishing wasn't as fruitful as my husband had hoped, we did enjoy everything else about this rental.

The call of the Loon, the lapping of the water on the shore, the gentle breezes and the breathtaking sunsets. Treat yourself to a week at Loon Lodge.

Driving down the gravel and dirt path to a secluded house was the best. We wanted some privacy and it fit the bill. The house was spacious and homey. We had dinner on the deck overlooking the lake numerous times. Most nights ended w/ a camp fire and s'mores. Canoe and row boat was fun although we still slipped on the ramp even though the warnings were clear.
Owner's Response: Thanks for the review! I'm delighted that you had a good stay at Loon Lodge.

Loon Lodge Review

My three grandchildren, wife and I recently (June, 2012) stayed at Loon Lodge. It was the perfect place for our vacation. The Lodge is located right on Long Lake about ten minutes from Traverse City. Our grandchildren fished and swim almost every day. One grandchild caught 60 fish during our stay. The property has a patio about fifteen feet above the lake and a long dock. The Lodge is surrounded by trees and has plenty of room for 8 people. All equipment such as washer and dryer worked. There are other homes nearby, but they are difficult to see due to vegetation. You have the since of being away from civilization.
We spotted a number of wild animals such as deer, squirrels, and ducks from the windows of the Lodge. The grandchildren enjoyed seeing the animals.
There may be one issue for some individuals. The TV only carried two channels. This was not a problem for us because we were too busy to watch TV.
If you are looking for a romantic place to reconnect with your family, we recommend you consider Loon Lodge.

Owner's Response: I'm delighted that the trip went well. I wish I had similar luck with the fishing.

We don't have very good TV reception but we do have highspeed internet access so downloading shows is an option.

There is too much to do in a week!

You can swim in the clear waters of Long Lake, lay in the sun, paddle around the lake (canoe and row boat provided) and hike. There are five islands in Long Lake; they are all public and perfect for exploring and picnics. Long Lake has great fishing, too.

Northern Michigan is full of attractions: the Sleeping Bear Dunes, Traverse City, the Platte and Boardman Rivers, wineries, bike trails, Leland (a cute fishing village), hiking. It is a wonderful area.
