Fishing off the west side of 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  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 cross country skiing.

This online resource is designed to help you get to know more about the neighborhood and the people who live here.

Invasive Species Alert

Garlic mustard. It’s all over the peninsula and as an invasive species the deer and rabbits don’t eat it because of the smell and it chokes out native plants like trillium and lady slippers.

How do you get rid of garlic mustard?
Pull at the base of the plant and try to remove the entire root. Pulled garlic mustard material will still complete flowering and set seed – do not leave it on the ground! Be sure to bag and dispose of pulled plants as garbage.

If you pull it out the Grand Traverse Conservation District has a large dumpster on site for garlic mustard.

Park and Pavilion Clean-Up Day

We had 7 generous neighbors come out to help clean up the park on Saturday, May 19:

Scott Sachtleben, Fred Schleifer, Dave Knudsen, Jim Bottoms, Josh Chimner, Ellie Hudson, Dave Waeltz.

We trimmed dead trees and branches, weed-whacked, blew leaves, weeded and raked the playground, raked the volleyball court, raked the infield, picked up sticks and put together a plan to mend a few more fence sections. We cleaned the gravel off the basketball court and re-set the parking protection logs around the parking lot (knocked off seasonally by snow/snowplow). Volleyball and basketball nets went up. Dave Knudsen hauled the branch debris and we’re going to finish our first mow of the season before the holiday weekend.

We debated doing the work on Saturday in the drizzle  vs. waiting for Sunday but we decided to just push through and get it done. The forecast kept calling for the rain to stop but we live in Michigan so it just kept on raining. The team did a great job.

Clean the roads campaign

It’s been a long, hard winter with lots of snow. Our road committee has worked overtime at keeping the roads clear but now, the snow is melting, the roads are clear and we need your help.

The Long Lake Peninsula Association is a private association with private roads. We hire someone to plow the roads but in the past, individual board members have taken it upon themselves to blow the sand and gravel off the roads.

This year we ask that you clean the road in front of your property. That means blowing or sweeping the sand and gravel, picking up trash, and clearing the brush that is overlapping the roads.

If we all pitch in and do a little of the spring clean-up we’ll have beautiful roads.

Thank you!
