Long Lake is one of Northwest Lower Michigan's best fishing and all-sports lakes. It is five miles long with sandy shores and five islands. We have two- 2 Bedroom cottages and we are located only 10 mi. from downtown Traverse City between TC and Interlochen.
Our resort, Birchwood Cove, offers a perfect spot for a family vacation in a park-like setting with mature oak, beech, and pine trees, a maintained lawn that goes all the way down to the beach and a quiet, private setting. The cove is a beautiful spot for relaxing and enjoying the sights and sounds of the lake and wildlife. Every year we enjoy a pair of nesting Loons, frogs, fish and turtles, cranes/herons flying across the lake and silhouetted in the sun-set, eagles, hawks and deer. There are numerous restaurants in the region, many within a few miles. Interlochen Arts Academy is 5 miles south of the resort.
One cottage can sleep 6 people, with two bedrooms and a pull-out sofa in the living room. The other cottage sleeps 8, and has a clothes washer and dryer. Beach amenities include fire-pit, dock, swim raft, row boat, shallow sandy beach in quiet cove. You may bring a boat and tie it to the dock. The beach front is shared between all rentals. Each cabin includes use of a charcoal grill and picnic table. Kitchens are fully-equipped including microwave and coffee pot. Linens and towels NOT included. We allow one well behaved, friendly pet at a fee of $70/week.

We rented two cottages. We had a great time. The lake area was so nice since in a cove and even though the weather wasn't the warmest our grand kids loved it. The canoe and rowboats were added fun. We were able to moor our boat very near the dock which was handy. The beds were fine but the pull out sofas are just that and of course not the best beds for adults. The cottages were clean and that is a plus for sure. Was relieved we were able to take our dog. We enjoyed our stay very much.
When arriving to the property we though it was a nice place. A little outdated and far from the lake but nice. When booking this place we informed the owner that there will only be 6 people staying at the cottage but we have a large family that likes to come visit and spend the day at the lake. The owner informed me this would be fine.
On our 3rd day we were having family come to spend the day at the lake about 16 of us total. We were at the lake playing when the owner arrived at the cottage and rudely informed us that we are being too loud, at 2pm, and everyone had to leave. She stated we were only allowed to have 2 visitors at a time. This was never stated in the contract or anywhere on the website.
The other tenant had a dog that pooped everywhere and it was never cleaned up. One of the other cottages had about ten cars parked outside. We also ended up having two people walk by our cottage and peek in our windows and doors. Mind you my son was getting changed in one of the bedrooms.
I do not recommend anyone to rent this place unless you want to deal with rude and inconsiderate people!!!!
We stayed the week of July 16th. It was very hot this summer. The lake was great as usual and the fishing was not bad. The kids had a great time swimming. My daughter and son-in-law were so happy to be there. A good family place for a vacation.
Great place to stay! Stayed for a week in the summer of 2010. Very peaceful location with lots to do in the surrounding area. If you want to stay at the cottage and relax that works too. The owners are very friendly. The cottages and surrounding grounds are well maintained.
