I was originally from Charleston, Ill, and attended school at the Eastern Illinois State College (now University) Lab School. Our family moved to Ann Arbor when I was in Jr. Hi, and completed school there. I attended college then joined the Air Force. I settled in Traverse City in 1970, lliving in my grandparents Traverse City home, whch we now own. I worked at Interlochen Center for the Arts, WPBN-TV, and finally Munson Medical Center. I am now retired.
The property was purchased by grandfather for $250 in 1905. It originally contained log cabin, which burned in mid 1930's. A WWII vintage Quonset hut was built after the war in that location as a summer cottage for family use. The rental home was build by my parents as retirement home in 1970. Our family vacationed at Long Lake all my life, and we love it!
The second floor main living area gives a 'Treehouse' view of the lake and woods. The lake has a nice sandy bottom with no weeds or rocks, so it is a great place to swim. We now have an 'L' shaped dock extention, which is a great place to fish from or to just sit and enjoy the lake For those who like to hike, there are 40 acres to roam on.
