Wonderful lake front cottage! A great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a truly wonderful vacation on Long Lake. Our cottages were very clean and nicely furnished. Our children and grandchildren had fun fishing and playing in the super clean lake. Bob and Trish were so friendly and concerned that we had all we needed to make our vacation a success. We are already planning a return visit next year. We would definitely recommend these cottages to anyone.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved our trip to Long Lake. The grounds were beautiful, cottage was clean and the lake was gorgeous! The owners did a lot of nice subtle things to make us feel welcome - Like having fresh firewood chopped and available for bonfires each night or delivering bread to our door!!

They were very easy to deal with and flexible with our stay. I would definitely recommend staying here.

another great week

  • 5 of 5

had another great week at this resort. we have been staying here for about 8 years and look forward to it each year. the property is well maintained and the owners are very nice. we love the close proximity to the stores, casinos, restaraunts and of cours the very good fishing for walleye, bass, perch and the occasional pike (even though we do not target them). we just completed our week and we are already looking forward to next year.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our favorite vacation! It was the perfect spot for our extended family. We loved having the cottages close to one another and sharing the outdoor space and also having our own separate living space! A few of our favorite things were bonfires and smores, trips to moomers, day trips downtown and to Leland, and just laying in the sun and enjoying time with family. We can't wait for our next visit!

Perrysburg, Oh


  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying in the 1 bedroom cottage. The cottage was very clean and very nicely furnished. The property was very well maintained. The lake was beautiful and we kayaked around the islands and along the shore line looking at all of the large houses. Just a short distance to Traverse City and also Sleeping Bear dunes. We brought our own kayaks to use but we also used the boats furnished. We want to come back again!!
