vacation rental description

Loon Lodge is a beautiful and private waterfront home on Long Lake, one of the most popular lakes in northern Michigan. The house is a secluded retreat; the property has more than 200 feet of frontage on the lake and the next closest house is more than 100 yards away, completely hidden by trees.

The house is directly on Long Lake. There is lovely swimming about fifteen feet from the house. The water is crystal clear and the bottom is a mix of sand and small rocks.

The house has a dock and a deck that looks over the lake. There is a mooring for boats and we provide a canoe and row boat for you to use. You can explore the five public islands in the lake, watch the sunset from the deck or dock and swim whenever you want. There is a small beach when the lake water level is low.

Loon Lodge has two large bedrooms and two baths and sleeps up to 8 people. The house has new beds and linens, a new gas grill, high speed internet, a TV with limited reception and a DVD player. Loon Lodge also has a new furnace and new washer and dryer.

Traverse City is just 15 minutes away so you have easy access to shopping, movies and activities. There are public tennis courts just down the street and a public boat launch across the lake.

A few comments from our recent guests:

"After vacationing at various places on Long Lake for 41 years, my family found Loon Lodge to be our favorite spot."

"Had a great time!!! Caught 17 walleye, 3 nice pike and the largest smallmouth  bass I've ever caught. Great drives every day, awesome campfires and just all in all a great time."

"A week of relaxation and reconnection. We feel lucky to be able to visit this spot."

"I can't remember when we have been able to completely relax this much on a vacation."

"This is the fifth year in a row that my family has rented a cabin. Everyone agreed that this was the best cabin ever. It was perfect."

You can swim in the clear waters of Long Lake, hike through the woods, relax on the deck or dock or beach, or paddle around the lake in the canoe. The five islands in Long Lake are all public; they are great for exploring and picnics.  

If you bring your own boat and launch it at the nearby public boat ramp you can waterski or sail; Long Lake is a wonderful lake for water sports.

There are all sorts of activities in the area. You can explore the Sleeping Bear Dunes, canoe on the Platte, Boardman or Crystal Rivers, visit bustling Traverse City, shop at the outlets, go to concerts at Interlochen Music Camp, visit the local wineries and bicycle around the area.

traveler reviews for this traverse city house rental

Loon Lodge Love

Review submitted: August 28, 2012   Date of arrival: August 18, 2012

My husband and I rented this cabin with another couple (along with our respective dogs). Loon Lodge provided the perfect experience for us. I have traveled to Northern Michigan every summer since my days as an Interlochen camper but this was my first experience on Long Lake. It is a very clear and beautiful lake and the cabin provides an excellent viewpoint for the most picturesque sunsets. The cabin is rustic and charming and set quite deep into the woods and away from the main road. This was important to us so that the dogs could enjoy their vacation too! Although the fishing wasn't as fruitful as my husband had hoped, we did enjoy everything else about this rental.

The call of the Loon, the lapping of the water on the shore, the gentle breezes and the breathtaking sunsets. Treat yourself to a week at Loon Lodge.
