  • Well, so- we have a family cottage on Long Lake. Over 60 years our families have been swimming, fishing, boating, picnicking and doing all the things families do on clear fresh water lakes in Michigan...  more »
  • A great lake to own a home on. The water is refreshing for swimming and it's popular with boaters. There's a public beach on Long Lake too. The drive around Long Lake is very pleasant.  more »
  • Spring fed inland lake near Traverse City. Nice for fishing, boating and swimming. No good public beaches and limited boat launches.  more »

Where to stay in Traverse City

Most accommodations in Traverse City lie near the waters of Grand Traverse Bay. The West Arm of the bay is closer to businesses and services in and around downtown. The portion of Traverse City on the East Arm of the bay remains quieter. Both areas offer hotels and bed and breakfasts with convenient access to the beach. Many visitors opt to stay in vacation rentals, including lakeside cottages and houses, which you'll also find here.
