Guestbook comments from the owner
Our family enjoyed our stay here at long lake retreat very much. We loved waking up to the calm, quiet and peaceful lake view each morning. We also ast outside on the patio to read, relax and eat our meals. Our oldest son spent more hours fishing on the dock than he did on the boat. Home was very comfortable and metour every need. We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation and felt very rejuerated at the end of it. Many great family memories were made.
Thank you The Quist Don, Beth, Brian, Jill, Spencer, and Carter.
After looking for several years to find the right lot to build our vacation and future retirement home, we found the perfect lot and lake. With 5 children and 13 grandchildren, we knew the home had to have plenty of elbow room. We designed the plans and our two level home was completed in 2007. Unfortunately, with the economic downswing, several children of our family left the state for other opportunities and the home is not frequently used as we expected it to be. We decided to open up our first floor suite for families to experience a wonderful vacation week on beautiful Long Lake. By the way, we named it Lakeside (it's on Lakeside Boulevard) Retreat (is where the stress is left behind and not felt here.)
Short drive only 2 1/2 hours north of metro Detroit Minutes away from Ausable river, short drive to Tawas, West Branch, Oscodoa.
We find that during the week it is very peaceful and the lake is not very busy at all. Our guest suite of our home remains cool during the hot summer months and the fireplace keeps the guest suite nice and warm when needed
