Opportunities to have your family vacation, family reunion, etc in a place like this don't come along very often.

Yes the home is Fully furnished! We had all new 7in Hickory floors installed, and they weren't fully cured last time we were up. Since the lake is still Frozen (Yes..nearly may) I'm waiting to go up and put the dock etc in, we'll move all the furniture back into the house from the garage then. We'll likely do that May 4-8th.

This is our family home, not just another cottage on the lake. Located on an exclusive private road, often called Millionaires Row by locals, due to those who live on the road. The views alone are breath taking.

You'll notice in the pictures, we spent all winter completely remodeling our home. Brand new hickory floors, drywall, paint, electrical, plumbing, windows, 5 all new decks, etc etc. And now that the snow has finally melted, we're having the beach area redone, and new washed beach sand added to the shoreline to ensure plenty of space for the little ones. Work won't allow us to move in this summer, so we're opening our home up to families looking for an amazing vacation opportunity.

Home has 5 (yes 5) decks, totaling more then 3500sqft of outdoor deck space. By far the best feature of this house, every room has deck access. The bedrooms all have their own sliders to private decks, and the Den and Dining rooms both exit onto the main lake side deck. This home has sunset views that you will not soon forget. Home over looks two of long lakes 5 islands. Both of the islands directly in front of the house offer additional nature trails etc.

Living room has floor to ceiling windows, measuring just over 20ft high, and over 20 feet wide! All new 7in hickory hardwood floors throughout!

More then enough room for just a single family, or multiple families vacationing together. The floor plan lends itself to privacy. Upstairs there are four bedrooms, each sharing 1 bath (2 beds, with 1 bath in between. The bedrooms are separated by along cat walk. We've set the house up so parents can be near their children if they like. Each bedroom has a King or Queen bed, with two Twin beds in the adjoining bedroom. (I have a copy of the floor plan that I can email on request).

Each of the 'adult' bedrooms have Flat Screen TV's. Cable and WiFi are included, although we suggest disconnecting and enjoying the surrounding nature.

Main floor has a 5th bedroom, with a king size bed as well. Then in the finished basement, there is a 6th bedroom, again with a King Bed, AND A private bath with walk in Sauna.

10+ person dining table. Ample out door seating and eating space, grill, etc.

But lets not forget the main reason to vacation in Traverse City, the outdoor activities. Just a few blocks down forest lodge is a trail to the former Girl Scout camp. It has since been converted to a nature conservation area, with miles of trails, two small private lakes, and several rustic buildings to explore. Hiking this area is an extremely popular past time.

The home also has over 100ft of direct lake frontage, with sandy lake bottom. A large deck directly at lake level gives plenty of room to stretch out and enjoy the beautiful, although brief, Michigan Summer. There's also a fire pit on this lower level for smores, and hot dog cook outs!

Dock is over 100ft long, and your welcome to bring you boat, toys etc.

Unlike most rentals, we do provide sheets, towel etc. There is a washer and dryer on site, and your welcome to do a load of laundry before heading back to reality. Pets are always welcome, their a member of the family, and we see no reason to leave them behind.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. We live in the Royal Oak Area, and can even meet around Metro Detroit if need be to do the lease agreements, payments etc.

Boat / Jetski / Paddle board rentals are available thru

Ask for Brett or Jane - 231.932.1800

They will deliver directly to the lake for you.

This is our actual family home. I was blessed to grow up directly across the lake from this property, and my Parents still live in my childhood home.

We've spent months and virtually all of our savings, rebuilding this property. All new floors, drywall, plumbing, roof, windows, decks, etc etc.

This is where we want to raise our children. My wife is currently pregnant, and due in early October. We've agreed not to move to Traverse until the fall of 2015, to give her mother a chance to watch the new baby grow etc. So in the mean time, we want your family to enjoy this property as much as we know we will.

William purchased this house in 2013

You just can't rent a true family home, in an area like this. I know the area very well, everything else on the market are 'income properties'. Crowded lots, haven't been updated since the 50's etc.

This is a wilderness protected area. Across the street, is a nature preserve, and at the end of the road is a massive nature park that can never be developed. If escaping to the woods, with mind blowing sun sets is what your after, without other 'vacationers' directly next door is what your after, you can't beat this home.

There are essentially three master suites in the home. If you're traveling with older family members, or multiple families, you will have plenty of privacy! Also, the entire living room are 24x24ft windows. So the views from the living room are very impressive.

A PRIVATE GETAWAY WITH PRIVATE BEACH

  • 5 of 5
The owners are basically the builders of the house. Their hospitality brings warmth in the atmosphere from the moment you walk in. Has a private beach and you can rent watersports on it too. 5 min from downtown basically, secluded for privacy and overall a Very high recommendation!

FANTASTIC SPOT ON A FANTASTIC LAKE!

  • 5 of 5
This house and location are great! The house is huge, with floor to cieling windows facing the lake. Great for a larger group/family. Long lake is a beautiful lake! Hard sandy bottom, clear blue water, islands with hiking trails. Great boating, fishing, swimming, relaxing, hiking...we did it all! We have a chocolate lab and the owner (Bill) had no problem with us bringing him along.

BEAUTIFUL INSIDE AND OUT. BEYOND RELAXING.

  • 5 of 5
This home was incredible for us. So quiet and relaxing both inside and outside. Sitting on the huge deck looking out over the lake was amazing!!! We loved our stay and will be back for sure!!!! Already planning a mid to summer trip back. I will book soon so as to secure a week or maybe two this time. We spent so much of our vacation just hanging out and enjoying the views of the lake. We can't wait to enjoy being in the water too.
