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

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 the winter of 2013 completely remodeling our home. Brand new hickory floors, drywall, paint, electrical, plumbing, windows, 5 all new decks, etc etc. The beach area has been 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 Until September 2015, 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.

Let us know if your interested in renting a Pontoon for your time at the home, and we can organize that for you as well.

About William

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, and my brother lives on the lake as well.

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

Why William chose Grawn

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. Please keep in mind, this is a FAMILY home. NOT a Hotel, Not a new construction. If you've never been to the area, let us know, and we'll let you know what to expect.

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Fun weekend

  • 4 of 5

It's all about the view! Enjoyed a long weekend with extended family at this home and had a great time! Like a previous renter alluded to, the home could use a bit more thorough cleaning between guests by the person who takes care of the housekeeping, but that's easily fixed. A little sweeping and 15 minutes later, we were good to go. Home was spacious and very comfortable and the deck overlooking the lake is just fantastic! As an aside, on the day we left, the owner was incredibly kind when a member of our party was injured while horseback riding at a local stable and allowed us to say past checkout while she was treated for bumps and bruises at Munson Medical Center. Would stay again.

Perfect Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over the New Year's break and absolutely enjoyed our stay. The house was very accomodating for families with children; there was a special play area, and the street was very private!

The house itself was beautiful and equipped for a bigger group, which we enjoyed since we were not too crowded and had plenty of room to chase the kids. Even though we visited in the middle of winter, the scenery was beautiful! The house is right on Long Lake, and it was perfect for sledding.

We cannot say enough good things about this property, especially since we've been going to Traverse City for many years, and this was the best property we have ever rented! We can't wait to see what it's like in the summer.

Would definitely stay here again!!

  • 5 of 5

The home was just as described. It was especially helpful that the owner took you on a video "tour" of the home in his listing. The property was so beautiful (colors of Fall were awesome), and the view of the lake was phenomenal! I wish we had drier weather and were able to take more advantage of the deck. It was HUGE! The inside of the home was phenomenal too! Very open and great for a large group - space for everyone to be together but not on top of each other. The kitchen was well equipped and also large enough for many cooks at the same time. The beds/bedrooms were very comfortable, and plenty of bathrooms for our crew. It would have been nice to have a few extra blankets, though, especially as the weather gets colder. Be aware that the drive in is a little tricky in the dark (but the owner gave great directions and the copper mailbox helps to distinguish it from the other homes on the road). Also, we did have a "trolley" come and pick us up for our wine tour and he was able to get in and out ok - we just had to meet him at the end of the driveway. :)

Great Property, Beautiful crystal clear lake!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on Thursday for Our long weekend. Despite the fact that mother nature didn't agree with our vacation it was an overall amazing trip.

The house is beautiful and spacious. The deck is outstanding (where we spent most of our time) and had enough seating so that we could enjoy the sunsets and amazing views. The bedroom and bathrooms are spacious, the entire house is very open and most of the bedrooms came with spectacular views of the lake! The lake is HUGE and crystal clear. The owner of the property even assisted us in finding a boat rental for our stay!

Great amenities, nice owner, clean house, amazing views. I would recommend to anybody!
