Long Lake Town House Rental Photos and Description
3 Bedrooms, 3 Bath Home With Breathtaking Views And 100' Private Frontage
In 2013 we opened our home to share for the first time and had fun meeting so many wonderful guests! The furnishings in the pictures are changing as we are in the process of updating. This beautiful home on the highly regarded Long Lake just outside of Traverse City, MI has wonderful amenities. It sits on a large wooded lot on a quiet drive and overlooks 4 of the 5 islands in the clear waters of long lake. The many outdoor sitting areas allow you to sit and listen to the waves as your stress washes away.
The home is updated with granite countertops and a dishwasher in the kitchen, a full size washer and dryer and plenty of lakeside seating. This is a well stocked '2nd' home so all you need to do is relax and have fun. Linens and towels are not included. If you would like us to include them, they can be provided for $75(to include bath/kitchen towels and bedding, or $100 if you'd like us to include beach towels as well for your stay.
A fire pit sits by the waters edge for marshmallow roasting and there is a full size outside infrared grill just steps from the well equipped kitchen. There's even a Keurig coffee maker and waffle maker!

There is a deck/sitting area in front of the home on both levels for sipping your coffee as you watch the sun come up.
There are also two large sitting areas at the waters edge and a spacious area at the end of the dock for enjoying the beauty of Long Lake up close or possibly just casting a fishing line.
This home has central air conditioning with an excellent air filtration system and hypo allergenic pillows to help your rest well.

Enjoy sunshine from early morning until dinner as this home faces southwest.
Spend your days waking to beautiful sunrises, exploring the islands, hiking all the fun trails, fishing to your hearts content, waterskiing, tubing, and playing in the beautiful water with a hard sandy bottom that is perfect for young children, then finish with s'mores around the campfire at the shoreline. It's a perfect week waiting to happen!

We both grew up in the beautiful Traverse City area and spent much of our childhood enjoying the crystal clear water and hiking the islands of beautiful Long Lake.
Leslie purchased this house in 2013
Why Leslie chose Long Lake Town
We decided several years ago to make it our dream to own a home on Long Lake where our children can swim and fish and we will some day retire to. However, we wanted a specific setting to lend to complete relaxation, a quiet drive into the home, a large private lot with a somewhat 'woodsy' feel, a beautiful view of the many islands, and a nice area near the water to sit and roast marshmallows or sip a cup of coffee.
What makes this house unique
When we found this home we knew that we'd found our 'Long Lake get-away' or 'Nestled In' as it appears to be when you drive in the driveway.
When we aren't able to be here enjoying our home we'd like to offer it to you and your family for some wonderful memory making moments of our own.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We weren't familiar with Long Lake until this vacation and we've fallen in love with all of it's islands and beauty and your home is so much better than we ever expected! We look forward to coming back again!
