About Donna Long

I started out at 15 being a hostess at a restaurant, for college I attended a travel academy, soon after had 2 beautiful bright children, ran a mechanical contracting company with my husband for 24 years, married 26 years to be widowed at a early age, and now once again a hostess to my own properties that I share with Wonderful Vacationers from all over the world:-)

Donna Long purchased this estate in 1995

Why Donna Long chose Union

This property is the home where my husband and I raised our children, when they grew up and moved out, I saw that we were not here as much and it's soooo beautiful to leave unattended, so I asked my husband if he would mind if we shared it with others. He agreed and the first year the response was soooo good that after I lost my husband, it's what kept me going:-) Everyone that stays here loves it, and many return year after year!!!

What makes this estate unique

As soon as your drive down the driveway between the manicured fields to the woods by the lake and then approach the home, you feel a sense of calmness. When you enter the foyer into the great room you then receive the WOW factor and the view is absolutely fabulous! Different words everyday can describe the view and the feeling, well, it's sometimes indescribable!! I look forward to providing this accommodation that you will long remember:-)

Guestbook comments from the manager

Words can not begin to express the wonderful time my family had being together in your amazing home! Everything was perfect and the surroundings, breath taking! I don't believe I could have found anything more enjoyable and relaxing. We take with us so many great memories and pictures. Everyone is already hoping we do this again next year and make it a family tradition! Thanks for everything!

Thanksgiving Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our family was so excited to stay at a Frank Lloyd Wright inspired home and it did not disappoint. It is just as the pictures portray and is a breath-taking home. We enjoyed every corner of this property which is designed to give a sense of togetherness as well as room to spread out and have quiet time. We used the water craft, walked around the water's edge, fished off the deck and thoroughly enjoyed the serenity of the property in general. Thank you so much for providing such a quality place to make family memories.
