FAMILY LAKE HOUSE

Long Lake Town House Rental Photos and Description

Cozy Family Home On Long Lake, 3br/2ba

Situated on Long Lake and just two hours from Chicago, this lakefront property is completely updated, newly decorated, and very clean with all the amenities of home. In fact, this is our family home that is available to rent just six weeks each summer. As such, we're sure that you'll find this special place to be just as comfortable, relaxing and accommodating as we do.

The home has 3 bedrooms, 1 bunk room, two full baths, a 4-season sun porch with pull-out sofa sleeper, a full updated kitchen with all modern amenities, a washer and dryer, dishwasher, central air, a flat screen television, and a lower level walkout. Almost every room includes fantastic views of the lake.

Outside, the property has multiple areas to relax and entertain with both upper and lower level decks, a large patio with a gas grill and a huge front yard for playing games or roasting marshmallows at the fire pit.

Of course, you'll also enjoy nearly 80' of lakefront on beautiful Long Lake. This 300 acre sand-bottom lake is spring fed, providing crystal clear water that is ideal for swimming and fishing. We have a private pier as well as a lakeside deck that is perfect for lounging or enjoying lunch by the lake.

This all-sports lake is great for boating, swimming, fishing, sailing, kayaking and canoeing. For a change of scenery, you can boat or kayak to a channel just 50 yards from the house where you'll have immediate water access to neighboring Coverdale Lake, a small no-wake lake that is perfect for swimming and other family fun. Additionally, another nearby channel allows you to kayak or canoe to the St. Joe River for a day of fly fishing.

IDEAL FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
This property checked every box for our family vacation. We stayed here with our six children (ages 4-14) and can't wait to return.

The sandy-bottom lake is lovely. Everyday our children fished off of the pier (the water is shallow there), kayaked, and played on the large grassy area (no sand = no mess). One day we hired someone from Elkhart to bring a speed boat with a large raft to pull the kids around the lake for a few hours (five kids fit on the raft at once -- lots of squeals and laughter). We brought our bikes and went for rides on nearby country roads where we saw horses and cattle. We also enjoyed long walks and didn't have to compete with a lot of traffic. There is a nice playground in town, and other fun activities are a short drive away (the Nottawa Fruit Farm in Centreville has a small collection of farm animals and a delicious bakery with not-to-miss pies; they also offer seasonal opportunities to pick your own berries). Zimmy's restaurant and bar serves delicious hamburgers; children are welcome until 9:00 p.m. It is rumored to be a great place to go for music and fun after 9:00 too.

The home is clean, roomy, comfortable, and well-appointed with many cozy areas to curl up with a book (some of our favorite spots included the deck overlooking the lake, the enclosed porch -- our kids fought to sleep there on the pullout couch each night --, and the chair swing on the lower level deck). It is located on a quiet street with friendly neighbors. And the owners were wonderful -- approachable and eager to make our stay carefree and pleasant. The listing and photos are accurate.

The greatest indication of our time at Long Lake was the fact that none of our children wanted to leave at the end of the week, even the teenagers who had been away from their friends and electronics! We would highly recommend this property to anyone who wants a quiet place in the country with beautiful views of the lake from almost every room. Thank you, Matt and Colleen!

Our lake home is located adjacent to a protected water preserve. The preserve is a waterway to a small, no-wake lake, Coverdale. It is a fantastic place to spend the day swimming or to cruise around in a kayak... and it is just 500 feet away! One canoe and 2 kayaks are provided. Please see more information regarding pontoon or speed boat rentals.
