Meet the Neighbors

Longcovians are a special bunch and we love nothing more than getting to know families in the community. We caught up with a few Long Cove families to chat about life on (and off) the lake, how they named and designed their lake home, and more. Enjoy getting to know your neighbors and be sure to say hello next time you see them out and about.

Hiking for a Higher Purpose

It goes without saying that Longcovians are an impressive bunch. From creatives to philanthropists and CEOs, the Long Cove community is full of interesting personalities with a wide range of talents.

The very definition of #goals, Karen Northcutt is the latest homeowner inspiring us to get out and do something spectacular. She’s fresh off an 11-day trek to Everest Base Camp, which Long Cove proudly helped to sponsor. And while she says she still hasn’t processed the magnitude of her accomplishment, she’s happy to be back at the lake, recuperating and reflecting on the experience.

(Re)Introducing Josh Ellis

Dear Long Cove Homeowners,

Some of you may remember me from the early days of Long Cove. As Director of Sales & Marketing, I was part of the founding development team to bring Don McNamara’s vision of a luxury lakefront community to life. After stepping away for a few years to run my own company, I joined Compass Real Estate. Recently I was presented with this exciting opportunity, so I’ve left Compass to rejoin the Long Cove team as President of Long Cove Realty.

Talking Shop with Mister Sweet Tooth

Just a hop, skip and jump away from the lake, downtown Malakoff is on the rise. Longcovians in the know like to stroll the area’s quaint antique shops for lake-home treasures—Rusty Circus and Antiques on Royall are favs—and treat themselves to something decadent from Mister Sweet Tooth, an old-school style bakery that opened in 2017. Haven’t been? Run, don’t walk.

It might be time to make Cupid an honorary Longcovian. From last year’s first-ever Long Cove wedding to the recent engagement of Jane Pinkston and Trey Laidlaw, son of homeowners Don and Suzanne Laidlaw, love is truly in the air.

A Long Cove Love Story

Memories are made at Long Cove—and that’s no cliché. Longcovians love to celebrate birthdays, holidays, and milestones in between at the lake. And we live for every minute, striving to do our part to make each celebration as special as possible.

When early Longcovians Sharon and Dwight Mankin bought their cottage in 2014, they envisioned a second home that would serve as the backdrop to family memories for generations to come.
