WATCH LONG LAKE SUNSETS FROM THE JACUZZI ON SPACIOUS DECK!

Traverse City House Rental Photos and Description

2 Story Lakefront Home, Landscaped, Sunset View

Private family home on beautiful south end of Long Lake. Long Lake is a 5 mile long all sports lake with five islands. Popular walleye fishing. Year round sunset views. Very gradual drop-off has soft sandy bottom. Take the fishing boat out and catch perch, walleye, bass and grill outside! Enjoy dinner on the deck or lower patio. Take the peddle boat or rowboat out for a sunset cruise or watch from the outdoor jacuzzi or hammock. Roast marshmellows in outdoor firepit. Blue heron, loons, eagles and other wildlife often visit. Wooded trails across the street and recreation center nearby.

Cottage style 2 story family home with 3 bedrooms (2 available currently), 2 full baths, living room and den, updated kitchen and porch with pantry.

National Cherry Festival and the Film Festival take place in Traverse City just 10 minutes away. Wonderful dining, shopping, and galleries, right in town. Four miles to Interlochen for groceries, dining, shops, a small water park and Interlochen Center for the Arts, which provides world class entertainment. 1.5 miles to Boone's Long Lake restaurant and just 4 miles to Moomer's famous ice cream shop.

Take a 30 minute drive to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and climb the dunes, follow the winery trails and art gallery trails, and visit small towns in Leelanau and Benzie counties.

Hiking, swimming, skiing, biking, golfing, charter fishing, kayaking, and canoeing are some popular outdoor activities in the area with its many lakes, beaches, and trails. You can even find a secluded spot on one of many Lake Michigan beaches!

Besides the great outdoors, the area is also well known for its dining, wineries, breweries, local art galleries, and numerous festivals

We are three sisters that now own the house jointly after inheriting it. This was our family home with lots of great memories. One sister, Karin, is a local resident who resides in the house parts of the year. She stays in the small cabin on property during rental season, over 100ft away making it convenient for guest to reach her with any concerns, yet respectfully giving her guests as much privacy as possible. Her assistant is also 3 miles away.

Karin Petersen purchased this house in 1977

The south end of the lake is has minimal activity and has the best view of beautiful sunsets. It is conveniently located close to Interlochen and Traverse City. Neighbors are very nice.

We don't hire property managers and live elsewhere. We are owners who have lived here many years and take pride in the property. We know details about the house and the the area. Over the years there have been many guests here and we love sharing the experience of Long Lake and this area with others. With this in mind, the decision to offer it as a vacation rental is the perfect solution to afford keeping it in our family for generations and share it with new friends. We want to provide a vacation to our guests as though they are guests of our own. (We can tell you where and when to find a secluded spot on a stretch of Lake Michigan beach) This is only our second season so we welcome any comments you have!

EXCELLENT

  • 5 of 5
The property was very clean and well kept. The house is very beautiful and very clean and the views are amazing! The owners (Karin and Mike) are very friendly and they go above and beyond to make your stay pleasant. The amenities that they supplied were more than we expected! Turtle Creek Casino was a very nice experience! The double decks and hot tub overlooking the lake, helped make our vacation a very relaxing and enjoyable stay! We would definitely recommend! We will be back!!

WONDERFUL VACATION HOME

  • 5 of 5
My family and our dog had a wonderful vacation at this lovely house. We especially loved the multi level deck. We spent most evenings on the deck watching the sunset. The house was just as pictured and had all that we required. We took advantage of the row boat as well as the paddle boat which were provided.
