Overview

Northern Michigan House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 8-12)

La Dolce Vita is the perfect home for a family getaway. One hundred feet of beautiful frontage on all-sports Long Lake with air conditioned, 3 Bedroom/2 Bathroom home with amazing lake views from every bedroom. Two bedrooms include queen-size beds. A king-size bed is in the master bedroom. All mattresses are new along with new bedding and linens. Extra beds include: a queen bed in the loft of the master (great for older children or teens) accessed by a ladder, a queen size sofa bed in the living room and two twin pull-out beds upstairs.

The home includes a very large living room with a lovely wood burning fireplace (firewood included) and expansive windows showcasing the beautiful water views. A new sixty inch tv with surround sound, premium cable with movie channels, and DVRs, are in every bedroom and the living room. There is a DVD/VHS player in the living room with a video and book library, plus board games for rainy day or evening fun. The full kitchen includes all major appliances, including dishwasher, pots and pans, spices, small appliances and everything you’ll need for the convenience of cooking a meal at home. La Dolce Vita also includes a Washer and Dryer. Enjoy the indoor hot tub for an evening soak. Children’s tub toys and water wings included.

Enjoy swimming, boating and fishing just outside the door! An expansive deck with deck furniture and outdoor dining table is terrific for a BBQ lunch or dinner on the natural gas grill. A fire pit and sitting area is located close to the water for making smores under the stars, firewood is included. The water is shallow at the shore with a hard bottom and the 120 foot dock provides a ladder to swim in the deeper water. A Peddle Boat and life vests are included. Two kayaks, one two person kayak, and two stand up paddleboards, all with paddles and life vests are also included for your week! Ask about our wonderful pontoon boat, that is also available for your use for the week at an additional charge. The sandy-bottom lake and sand bars provide excellent swimming spots. There are a variety of fish for afternoon family fishing fun: bluegill, bass, panfish, pike, muskie, walleye and perch. Boat to the connecting smaller Mickey Lake and the five islands. Three parks are very close to the home, with volleyball, basketball, walking track, and tennis courts available. The Grand Traverse Regional Land Conservancy allows public access to South Island in Long Lake and the Carter-Strong Bird Sanctuary on Ruth Lake.

It is an easy ten minute drive to downtown Traverse City or Interlochen Arts Academy. 15 minutes away from shopping, golfing, museums, beaches, and numerous restaurants. A 20 minute drive to Sleeping Bear Dunes, casinos and downhill skiing. Visiting Moomer’s Ice Cream is a must, just a five minute drive to 120 flavors, overlooking the dairy farm.

No Smoking. Sunday to Sunday rental for summer.

Taxes included.

About Pamela LaGattuta

We purchased this home because we love the area and life on the lake and someday hope this will be our retirement home. I grew up in the area, and after living and teaching in the Detroit area for fifteen years, am very glad I made the move back to Northern Michigan.

Pamela LaGattuta purchased this house in 2012

Why Pamela LaGattuta chose Northern Michigan

This home is perfect for a family vacation. It is in a quiet neighborhood on the lake, yet so close to the convenience of Traverse City. We started using VRBO after the birth of our daughter. We found it was much easier for us to vacation with a baby/small child when we had a full kitchen, laundry facility and our own private, quiet space. We hope other families will enjoy the Traverse City area and the amenities of our lake house.

What makes this house unique

We love the indoor hot tub and fireplace. Every night, after dinner, we make smores and have a dip in the hot tub before we go to bed. Our daughter thinks it is a special way to end the day...making memories.

Absolutely Gorgeous House - Good Distance from Downtown too

  • 5 of 5

I'd like to start off by mentioning that this house was beautiful. I was excited when I saw the pictures of this rental but was amazed when I saw it in person. Gorgeous!

I rented it a long weekend get-away with friends during Couples Valentine's weekend. We wanted to explore the Traverse City area, this place was great because it was 15 mins from downtown and there was plenty of parking in the winter! One of our favorite places was the Traverse City Whiskey Company - very cool! We were also able to all hang out at the house, sit around the big table, and play cards.

The house had enough room for everyone to sleep comfortably - we ended up having 10 adults. The cookware and "extras" in the pantry were very generous and we used them to cook large breakfasts two mornings. The house was very clean and supplied with fresh towels. Pam, the owner, took time to make sure we felt welcome with emails ahead of time and notes the day we arrived.

Oh! And we loved the hot tub room! So nice and relaxing!

I cannot say enough how nice of a weekend my friends and I had - I hope I didn't forget anything!

I would definitely recommend this property to other friends and family and see myself returning for another weekend with friends.

Thanks for the awesome retreat!

Relaxing home with everything you need for a great vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We come to Traverse City every October and always stay in the same house on Long Lake.

But this year we decided to stay in a different house and get a different view of the lake.

We loved this home...it was right next to the beach. We were 10 minutes from Traverse City.

The house is clean and stocked with everything you need to have a great vacation. Beds were comfortable and the views from all the rooms were amazing. We spent time going to the Apple Festival in Charlevoix, headed to Harbor Springs to see the glass blower do his thing...had cookies at Tom's Moms Cookies (they are the best) Went to the tunnel of trees. Had lunch at Lobdells (the culinary institute in Traverse City). Enjoyed Sleders and Georgina's Restaurants in TC. The house was less than 5 minutes away from Moomers ice cream. This home was the perfect location for doing so many fun things. Would definitely stay here again in the future.

Everything we wanted!

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing. It had everything my husband and I were looking for. We were pleased with the cleanliness and beauty of the home/property. The attention to details was fantastic as well. We loved the views we had each morning when we woke up and we enjoyed being outside engaging in different activities (i.e. yoga, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, etc.) We were close to town, as well as Sleeping Bear Dunes and the wineries. We couldn't have asked for more and we will definitely be back with family in the future. Thanks Pam!
