House, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, sleeps 6 right on Long Lake

Websterwood is a beautiful custom-built cedar-sided lakefront home. Two stories tall with a gorgeous cathedral ceiling in the living room, the house is spacious and airy with lots of light and breathtaking views of Long Lake. Two complete bedrooms and one loft bedroom for kids or adventurous adults, plus a spacious double futon in the living room sleep a total of 6 people, making this the perfect home for your family's vacation. The remodeled kitchen and dining room present a gorgeous focal point to your meals and family time. Websterwood is only 10 minutes from the busy town of Traverse City, which makes its relaxing lakefront atmosphere the perfect counterpoint to any TC vacation.

About the Owner

This house is my grandma's house, and I arrange rentals for her since she isn't tech-savvy. My sister and cousins and I spent many a summer and family holidays in this house. I learned how to swim here, played board games, and carved pumpkins on the kitchen floor every Halloween.

4th of July Getaway

  • 4 of 5
The home was beautifully maintained and provided everything you would need for your stay. The owner was pleasant to deal with when booking our stay (even negotiated the length of stay with us). We enjoyed several bonfires, dinner on the grill, and the breathtaking view of Long Lake from the patio. The 4th of July fireworks display was awesome! Just when you thought it was the grand finale, more would come. We had no concerns other than the stairs leading down to the lake being a challenge for our 3 and 5 yr old. After our stay, the owner was kind enough to send us a few things we had left behind. We enjoyed our time at Websterwood.

From the Owner

This home was built by my uncle, David Webster (of David Webster Construction) for my grandma in the 70s. When certain parts like the kitchen, bathroom, and dining area became outdated, my uncle did the remodel too. The home is designed to feel lofty and tall like the pine trees which grow on the property, and the use of natural wood inside and out make this house fit in to the surroundings.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Cherry Capital Airport at 10.2 Miles Nearest Motorway : US 31 at 3.9 Miles Nearest Beach : Long Lake Waterfront

Websterwood boasts 88 feet of private lakefront access with a dock. The water near the dock is shallow enough for your kids to play safely, and there is some sand for sandcastles and other structures right at the lakefront access. Comfortable adirondack chairs on the dock make it perfect for adults to relax while viewing the lake or catching some sun. Only 500 feet from the house is the trailhead for the nature trails in the South Long Lake Preserve, home to many species of Michigan flora and fauna. Websterwood is only 10 minutes from Traverse City proper, a town rated #1 in America as a 'Foodie' town, and on many 'Top Ten' lists of best small town vacations spots, including by National Geographic. With scuba diving, hot air balloons, horseback riding, hiking, kayaking, swimming, ship rides, shopping, dozens of other watersports and activities, it's hard to find time to fit everything in your vacation! Take a wine tour of the Old Mission or Leelanau peninsulas, climb the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and swim in Lake Michigan, come for the Traverse City Film Festival or Traverse City Cherry Festival, and then return to a quiet, peaceful, lakefront home.

From the Owner

This home is unique in that it is not a tiny, cramped cabin on the lake, but a house with soaring windows that overlooks 88 feet of private lake frontage. You won't feel cramped or as if you are roughing it; the kitchen is filled with modern appliances, and the home is filled with the sounds of nature, not traffic. My grandma gave the property she had across the road to the Long Lake Association, and it is now the trail head for nature trails and hiking paths, so you can easily access and enjoy those.
