Overview

Northern Michigan House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 2.25 Baths, Sleeps 10

Imagine peaceful mornings on the deck overlooking the lake, quiet walks on gently winding roads, dinner outside with your family or tons of fun playing on the lake. You can find this and so much more at this nice retreat on the all-sports Long Lake. Only 8 miles from downtown Traverse City. 3 bedrooms plus 4th separate space for sleeping and 2-1/2 bathrooms. Multi-level house with steps down to lake. On quiet side street, faces Southwest.

Upstairs bedrooms- 2 Queen. Downstairs bedrooms-Master has 1 Queen and additional sleeping area has 1 Queen/trundle (2 Twins). House has concrete floors throughout most of the house. 2 upper bedrooms have bamboo floors. The concrete feels cool in the summer and radiant heat for winter months. Sunken living room, fireplace in the kitchen, wide spiral staircase to upper bedrooms. Windows and decks everywhere make this a fun place to stay with plenty of views from inside. Washer/Dryer, Full kitchen with dishwasher, Cable/DVD/Internet.

Charcoal grill, patio, Fire pit, (fire pit to stay on brick patio) Dock, Hard sandy bottom lake. Sunset view. Beautiful area to take a walk or ride your bike. If you need entertainment, catch a show at Interlochen Arts Academy. Great dining only 5 miles away. Boones Long Lake Inn is only 1 mile from Northern Comfort when you don't feel like cooking. Frog Pond is just a few miles away. Horse Shows by the Bay is 19 miles east. Sleeping Bear Dunes makes a great day trip about a 1/2 hour drive away. This home is terrific for families and those looking for a quiet retreat.

The sandy-bottomed lake and sand bars provide plenty of swimming spots; the natural shoreline holds plentiful fish for the taking. There are even two tiny connected ponds, Mickey and Ruth Lakes, and four islands. The Grand Traverse Regional Land Conservancy allows public access to South Island in Long Lake and the Carter-Strong Bird Sanctuary on Ruth Lake. The lake is enjoyed for all types of water sports. Watercraft rentals are available locally or you can bring your own. There are two public boat ramps at Gilbert Park and Crescent Shores Boat Launch. Fishing is popular here; the lake gives up bluegill, brown bullhead catfish, green sunfish, large mouth bass, muskellunge, northern pike, pumpkin seed sunfish, rock bass, small mouth bass, walleye, yellow bullhead catfish, and yellow perch. And, in winter, there is ice fishing, of course. No matter what the season, there is something interesting going on at Long Lake.

Linens included. No smoking. Pet welcome.

This is a Saturday - Saturday rental for prime summer weeks. Short stays available off peak.

This location is 7 miles to downtown Traverse City shopping area. Interlochen Center for the Arts and Frog Pond Village are about 7 miles as well. Boones Long Lake Inn is a great spot to dine and is only a 5 minute trip from the house. Stop at roadside farm markets, Gallagher's fresh local meats and friendly neighborhood shops. There is also indoor golf just a couple of miles down the road.

We were very happy with both the home and the correspondence with the staff. The house was eclectic and reminds us of a frank Lloyd wright house. Could of used a deep cleaning and kinda kitchen kinda needs updating but Overall it is fine.

Reviewer Comments:

This rental property is in need of some updating. The half bath located literally in the kitchen was absurd. The property is a very modern home but was definitely in need of some upgrading. The house does not have air condition. I can't imagine how miserable that would be in very warm weather. The bathroom shower curtains were improperly hung from long chains that were all tangled. And the "Fourth" bedroom with trundle bed is literally located in the hall where everyone passes through while accessing the second floor or coming in from the garage. The outdoor areas/deck sitting on Long Lake is the greatest feature to this home. Gorgeous views and access to boating via the dock.

For the amount of money we paid I stay at this home, we were extremely disappointed. The home was not clean and not well represented. I was told the location of the home was is a great location but actually it was pretty far from downtown and all local hot spots.

Reviewer Comments:

Loved the view of Long Lake from the three decks. Fantastic lake that we enjoyed with the views and from a rented pontoon boat. Close to Traverse City and not far from the dunes The house is quirky - a neat modern layout that had my guests and family in awe as they arrived. . The problem is in the details.... The place is very dirty. You just expect better quality with the price you pay. Master bed white shag rugs were stained. Bed linens were nasty and the master bed felt like a portable fold up. Light switched coated with greasy finger jam. These are very simple things to make a decent home wonderful. Thick dust coated on the top of the cabinets and ceiling fans, cobwebs on the corners. The dock is covered in seagull droppings. This place would be stunning with the right amount of effort in cleaning and simple maintenance. It felt like a dirty motel. Additionally, This is not a place for older people or small children. Many steps and stairs in the house and the decks. The main deck does not have a safety railing which is a liability or safety concern. All in all, we would not go back. I can find better rentals elsewhere where ownership takes pride in their home.

Reviewer Comments:

The family had a great time together. Our party included two children 21/2yr and 5yr. They managed the stairs. There are 56 stairs from the water to the upper bedrooms, so not the place for someone with disabilities. Three bedrooms have doors, the 4th is a sleeping area, semi-private with a folding screen. The house would benefit from some TLC especially the kitchen appliances. There is no beach to speak of but the water is very shallow and great for floating around and good for the little ones in our party. There is a dock and moorings available and we rented a pontoon boat and visited the town beaches and the islands in the lake. A really gorgeous lake,would go back.
