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.

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.
Garlic Mustard Alert
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.
