Long Lake Peninsula online
The Peninsula is a pleasant and quiet 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.
The DNR will be conducting a fish study on Long Lake the week of May 22, 2017. They will have their nets marked with survey buoys. Fisherman and boaters please stay away from these marked areas.
As the weather improves, we notice more traffic on the peninsula. Our winter residents have returned, construction projects are in full force and everyone seems to be out and about. The speed limit from the entrance to the top of the hill at the narrows is 15 mph. It is curvy and narrow. The rest of the peninsula is 20 mph.
We are discouraging outside walkers to reduce our liability. This is a private road for “members and guests only.” Be considerate of your neighbor; walk facing traffic, stay to one side and SLOW DOWN when driving. People driving too fast remains one of the biggest complaints here…and we are growing in numbers and residents.
Thank you for Driving Gently and Cautiously.

Please designate a couple of off road parking spaces to help keep cars off the main roads. Remember that not everyone will be participating in the yard sales and will need to get down the peninsula roads.
Each home is encouraged to post their own free Craigslist yard sale ad with their sale items and address for greater yard sale success!
LLPA encourages participants to place a yard sale sign on their street. With seven roads on the Long Lake Peninsula yard sale shoppers can get “lost” trying to find each home.
