Awesome location, lake, cottage!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, brother and sister-in law and I stayed over labor day weekend, 2015. The cottage was perfect for us. We loved it's close proximity to the water and how very peaceful the property is. We took advantage of the pontoon available even though we had brought jet skis with us. The boat launch is just down the road. Traverse City is a few minutes away with plenty of great restaurants and activities to enjoy. We enjoyed the nice sized deck all day long. In the afternoon it is shaded by the trees and is very comfortable even on a hot day. We will definitely return to this cottage!

Great get away location.

  • 5 of 5

We have had the opportunity to stay at this very cozy, comfy cottage several times. We love the lake and the view of the islands from either the living room, deck or dock. Enjoying our morning coffee watching the Loons and ducks swim past is always a treat. We have caught fish off the dock or the swimming raft. Taking the pontoon out to the islands for hiking and lunch is always a pleasure. We highly recommend this rental unit. We find the owners to be most hospitable and accommodating. Everything you need is on site.

Amazing Northern Escape

  • 5 of 5

Simply amazing location. Our family has been coming here for over 10 years and it never fails to deliver. Long Lake is a jewel near Traverse City and this cabin is a jewel on the lake. The pontoon boat is a great bonus. Kids love the beach and raft. Caught bass right off the dock. So much to do both at the lake and around TC. The owners are very responsive. Booking now for next year.. can't wait!
