Ice fishing off the peninsula.
The Long Lake Peninsula is a pleasant and quiet private community of about 195 homes; a great place to live, raise children, or retire. We are only 12 minutes from downtown Traverse City, as well as just a few miles from the Interlochen Center for the Arts, and 30 minutes from Lake Michigan.
A feature that distinguishes us from other communities is the fact that there is only one road onto Long Lake Peninsula. Thus, traffic is slowed and residents are able to enjoy walking, jogging, biking, rollerblading, and even cross country skiing.
This online resource is designed to help you get to know more about the neighborhood and the people who live here.

As a fall service opportunity, we are collecting socks for Safe Harbor, the TC homeless shelter which now has a permanent home. Guests of Safe Harbor typically walk 4 – 6 miles a day all winter and often have limited access to laundry facilities. Durable winter socks in men’s and women’s sizes allow guests to keep their feet warm and dry. Sturdy socks won’t wear holes in the heels and toes and are the most practical for the guests. We estimate that there are 75 – 90 people experiencing homelessness on the street and use Safe Harbor and the Goodwill Inn. Peter Starkel, a member of LLPA, was instrumental in getting Safe Harbor up and running.
Some of the donated socks
There will be a bin at the park near the little library. The collection will continue through November. For additional information on Safe Harbor https://www.gtsafeharbor.org/
Socks update 11/20/17 The socks donations are going well. Safe Harbor really appreciates our donations.
As many of you know, we have had an increase in the number of year-round, seasonal as well as short term rentals on the peninsula. Four LLPA board members attended the recent Long Lake Township meeting to discuss rentals. The township and the state are looking at ways to manage problems that arise due to these rentals.
If this is an issue that concerns you, please consider joining the LLPA Rental Committee to discuss our local concerns and come up with ideas for managing rental properties on the peninsula. Bob Kennedy is chairing this committee. For more information please contact Bob at email@example.com .
We look forward to hearing your ideas and concerns as we move forward.
