The Long Lake Peninsula is a pleasant and quiet private community of about 200 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.

We have provided several resources for you if you live on the peninsula or are considering moving to or building on it.

As a private community, there is no public access to our beach, boat launch or playground.

Important to all Peninsula Walkers/Runners and Drivers

According to a recent MDOT, article “Before and after work are popular times for people to take a walk, and this time of year, it can be very dark.”

We have lots of walkers and runners on our Peninsula roads. Even in the summer there have been several close calls. There are several things to remember.

“One of them was that they are walking the wrong way in the roadway, instead of facing traffic they had their back to traffic,” said MDOT north region manager, Richard Liptak. “One of the other things he noticed was that in many cases they blended in with the background and they weren’t very visible.”

That means wearing reflective clothing and walk facing traffic. These are both very important for the safety of peninsula residents. Drivers need to slow down, look for pedestrians and remember the roads can be icy this time of year.

Snow plow vs Mailbox

Winter is here. Please check you mailbox and put out marking stakes for the snowplow if needed. Remember, we are a private community and hire a private snowplow business. He does the best he can but when it’s snow vs your mailbox, the snow is apt to win.  LLPA members are responsible for maintaining/replacing their mailboxes.

Garbage cans create a hardship for the snowplow. Please bring in your garbage cans in as quickly as possible and try not to put them out too early.

Thank you.
