Welcome

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 boat launch or playground.

  3. LLPA organizes, promotes and pays for one designated yard sale day each summer to decrease non-resident car traffic, and “clean-up” the association.
  4. The LLPA yard sale is a great way to get rid of unused items inside your home and garage, as well as yard items, outdoor furniture and lake “toys” etc.

Road Work Beginning June 18, weather permitting

Elmer’s will be on the peninsula preparing the areas for paving on June 18 & 19. Paving is planned for June 20th.

They will begin improvement, repair and paving of the entrance from S. Long Lake Road through the drive at 7856 S Outer Drive and the unpaved portions of Elm and Cedar Dr.

Team Elmer’s is working hard to complete the areas in common in one day.

  • It will be dusty and congested.
  • There will be flag people controlling lane traffic to minimize access limitations throughout the narrows.
  • There will be a large variety of heavy equipment throughout the entire process.
  • The material will be 320 degrees as it is applied. Be vigilant of children, pets and others. Serious burns can occur if contacted.

Let’s Join Team Elmer’s in improving our world by being Cautious,
Vigilant and Patient.

Please plan on additional travel time.

Safety for cars, walkers/runners/dog walkers and bikers

We have lots of walkers and runners on our Peninsula roads and there have been several close calls.

To keep everyone safe we want to remind you 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.

Please be considerate of your neighbor; walk facing traffic and stay to one side. SLOW DOWN when driving. People driving too fast remains one of the biggest complaints here…and we are growing in numbers and residents.

Rules of the road:

  • Keep safe. Always walk facing traffic. This gives you the best chance to see cars approaching you and drivers can see you.
  • Please teach your children to walk on the correct side, also.
  • When cycling, stay on the right, with the traffic
  • Thank you for driving gently and cautiously and walking safely.
