!!!!!!! ATTENTION, PLEASE NOTE !!!!!!! For some reason, the 3 main mapping sites (google, yahoo, mapquest) and all gps units i am aware of, show the INCORRECT location for my property. My property is on the southeast portion of the main part of Long Lake. If you contact me, I can guide you to bringing up a satellite photo of the location. We will email detailed directions to guests and we suggest you rely on our directions rather than mapping sites or gps devices. UPDATE--currently, mapquest IS correct within a few hundred yards.

PLEASE CALL OR EMAIL US FOR AVAILABILITY---THE SITE CALENDAR IS NOT ALWAYS CURRENT!!!!

Please go to: SITES.GOOGLE.COM/SITE/LONGLAKEASSOCIATION/ for a wealth of additional information, photographs and maps pertaining to long lake and the surrounding area.

Great Lake Home!

Thank you for a wonderful experience at your lake home. This house was spotless and the lake is clean and clear. We had excellent fishing, catching a wide variety of fish. The pontoon rental made exploring the lake a breeze, but the lake is small enough that you could easily get around with the kayaks and row boat too! The home is well appointed with anything you need to cook up a meal, play a game, or relax at the fire pit. The overall set up here is awesome! The owners were extremely helpful and communication was excellent. We definitely recommend this property highly! Thank you again for sharing your wonderful vacation home.

Awesome Lake House in a Pure Michigan location!

This awesome beautiful lake home was in the perfect location for our family, secluded yet not far from civilization for supplies. As I read another review complaining of the record summer heat I had to smile because when we arrived it was under 60 degrees and raining, quite the opposite experience and unexpected for us in July. The weather did not break until Wednesday and then was slow to warm up, but we would return to this rental with no hesitation. The owners have provided thoughtful entertainment that kept us busy when the rain was heavy. We enjoyed playing basketball and ping pong in the basement, we put together puzzles we brought along and watched movies. We drove over and caught an amazing view of several elk bulls with their huge racks and we were the sporting goods store and the ice cream shop's favorite customers that week. One rainy afternoon we drove into Alpena and toured the Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary and enjoyed dinner at J J's Steak and Pizza. It was rare family time with the teenagers and simply wonderful. The owners have thought of every detail both in descriptions and instructions, were eager to accommodate, and their home is simply a perfect family retreat in Pure Michigan style. It was a luxury vacation for our family, but totally worth the cost! The master suite on the main floor was large and with sliding glass doors looking out onto the lake we could lie on the bed and enjoy the peaceful view. The bedrooms upstairs were nice and the bathroom quite spacious. We attempted to sit and enjoy the view from the lovely chairs on all decks but Mother Nature was not very cooperative. The lake was the perfect size and the water was clean and adding a pontoon rental to our week was the perfect suggestion. We enjoyed the kayaks, the boat, the fire pit, and the picnic table which all look exactly like the photos. I can view the photos now and drift back to the wonderful relaxed vacation our family enjoyed last summer. The kitchen, the washer-dryer, & the television all worked to our satisfaction; though I did suggest a master bedroom TV would be a welcome addition. We never missed a day fishing and though they were on the small size, they were many. Never used our swimsuits until the end of our stay, but we made memories that we will always treasure when we reminisce about our Michigan Adventure. Thumbs up & 5 stars for Mike and Mary's hospitality and home. Don't delay, book it now!

Nice home on a gorgeous lake!

We had a great time at the lake in Hillman. The house was very clean and nicely maintained, and there were a lot of fun things for kids to do--especially the lake. We rented the pontoon boat and had a fantastic time out cruising and swimming at the island in the middle of the lake. Other highlights were listening to the loons at night and the fantastic sunsets. Our only issues were the heat (it was in the 90s every day and there was no air conditioning), which made it uncomfortable for sleeping, and the bugs. We weren't able to be out after dusk for a fire due to the mosquitos, which was a bummer. Even with bug spray and citronella candles! This was no fault of the home--just had to do with the heat and humidity for the week we went. Mike and Mary were super nice and easy to work with. They made sure we had everything we needed.

Would recommend to families with young kids especially. The lake is nice and shallow, sandy and warm.
Owner's Response: thank you for the kind words carol!! our home does have exceptional cross ventilation with strong breezes coming off of of the lake. there are ceiling fans and portable fans in each bedroom. this particular week may have been the hottest and most humid week in 20 years on long lake!! as always with summer nights on a lake, there are occasional times when mosquitoes are present. we, along with our guests have always been able to easily control them with a little bug spray during those times.

as an aside, our listing has always made it clear that the house does not have central a.c., and we always discuss this up front with any folks who inquire about being guests at our lakefront home.

Beautiful house on a beautiful lake! We spent a relaxing week on Long Lake. It was our first trip to Michigan and we truly enjoyed ourselves. The house was accurately depicted in the photos. The home was immaculately clean, the kitchen well equipped and very comfortable throughout . It was evident the owners intent was to make guests feel at home. The owners were very informative of the area. We would not hesitate to recommend this home. We would also suggest the pontoon to enjoy the lake at it fullest

Words are hard to express the experience we had up at this Hillman Retreat. The owners were friendly and provided us with all the gadgets of the home as well as the fun outside. We used the rowboat and our fishing boat everyday sometimes 3times a day with 6 adults all loving to fish. The kayaks were handy if someone didn't want to fish and the lake was clean and beautiful with a nice breeze coming off the lake. We wound down in the living room with the great view in the evening or early morning. Played cards around the dining table and enjoyed the two decks and docks for sunbathing. We played yard games and enjoyed the firepit at night. We even brought our bikes to enjoy. I have already recommended this place to alot of my friends at work . We will definitely be back!
