Twin Lake House Rental Photos and Description
3 bedrooms plus loft, 3 full baths, sleeps maximum of 10
This beautiful lakefront home has over 2700 square feet, 3 bedrooms plus a loft and 3 full bathrooms. There are 2 king beds, 1 queen and 2 queen sleeper sofas. It can sleep 10 people very comfortably. We have 85' of frontage on a sandy all-sports lake. The lake is spring fed and very clean and the depth increases slowly so kids have plenty of room to splash around. A premier golf course is a few miles away.
The history of the house: The house is immaculate and all furnishings are new (furniture, mattresses, linens, towels, etc.).
Because we used to be renters we have tried to reduce what you'll need to pack by stocking our house with everything we think you'll need for a comfortable stay. There is a can of coffee next to the coffeemaker as well as tea bags, sugar, creamer, salt and pepper, and cooking spray. We also give you aluminum wrap, plastic wrap, a new scouring sponge and cleaning products such as dishwashing detergent and spray bottles to clean the table and counters after a meal. We supply paper products such as paper towels, napkins, toilet paper and kleenex as well as soap, shampoo and conditioner. There are also 2 hair dryers, and we provide all your towels and washcloths as well as an abundant supply of beach towels. The house has a large capacity washer and dryer that you are welcome to use. We leave laundry detergent and stain remover for you.
The main level and loft: The house has two levels plus a loft. Each level has a full kitchen, living room, bedroom and bathroom so two families could easily share the house. The main level has a great room (combining living room, dining room and kitchen) with sliding glass doors to the deck; a master bedroom with a king size bed, cable TV and DVD player, master bathroom and walk-in closet; a second bathroom with a jetted tub; a laundry room with a large capacity washer and a dryer; and a loft over the great room, which includes a queen size sleeper sofa and desk.
As you can see from the picture, the kitchen is modern, spacious and clean. There is a coffee maker, blender and toaster and abundant dishes, glassware, cookware, and serving pieces, including plastic dishes for kids.
The dining area has a table and six chairs. There are also 4 bar stools that surround the kitchen island and a high chair.
The main floor great room has a gas fireplace, cable TV and a DVD player.
The lower level and outdoors: The lower level has a living room (with a queen sleeper sofa) and cable TV with a DVD player. There are sliding doors to the patio. The lower level also has a second full kitchen; two bedrooms (one with a king bed, one with a queen) and a full bathroom. It also has its own thermostat separate from the main floor for your comfort.
We offer a paddle boat and a row boat with a small motor down by the beach. There are beach chairs and a beach umbrella for those who don't like the direct sun. We have life preservers for small children all the way up to adult size. There is plenty of sports equipment for those times the kids don't want to be in the water. Besides the paved area by the garage where the basketball hoop is there is a substantial backyard to enjoy as well as a swingset. In the winter the hill down to the lake makes a fantastic sled hill and we are right next to snowmobile trails. We keep a binder in the living room with area attractions (winter and summer) and direction

Guestbook comments from the owner
We came here with two families total and the house was PERFECT for this. Our kids loved the house more than anything else (...that we paid and took them too!!) They kept saying they just wanted to play in the 'backyard' (by the dock:) We caught tons of fish off the dock, loved the lake because it was so shallow and safe for the little ones, and built fires in the sand at night. The owners make everything very convenient by providing so much at the house...so packing was simple, which is always nice! Couldn't have asked for a better value or a more fun time!!!
If it's Wednesday it must be Craig's Cruisers. You get to play miniature golf, go go-karting and play bumper boats 'til you're exhausted for a reasonable flat fee. We go anytime we're in town on a Wednesday. There are also batting cages and a Chuck E. Cheese style arcade so this has become one of our favorite places in the summer. We also go berry picking and make muffins with our harvest and love to visit the local ice cream shops (Whippi Dip and Home Town Creamery - both on Holton Road). The movie theater (Cinema Carousel) is a favorite because you can pour all kinds of toppings on your popcorn (sometimes it really is the little things that make life so good).
My sister and I had been renting homes in this area for about three years. We loved the time our families got to spend together and knew that we had to buy our own home to make even more memories. We love being right on the lake and that we can truly relax here without leaving the comfort of home behind.
There is both much to do and nothing to do at our house depending on your mood. We have spent days by the water swimming and paddle boating and going in for the occasional bite to eat. We have also spent busy days miniature golfing, go-karting, hitting balls in the batting cages and going out for ice cream. The trip just wouldn't be complete if you didn't spend at least one day at Michigan Adventures Amusement Park. I'm a fan because the lines are generally short for the rides (sometimes there isn't even a line at all) and the water park is large and can accommodate the little tykes as well as the teenagers. Most of all, it is clean.
As the days go by you realize that you've forgotten the date and that you don't feel any stress because you don't have to be anywhere at any particular time. The air is clean, the lake is warm and the only noise you hear is your kids laughing and squealing in delight in the water.
