About Richard Berkfield

My father built this home in the late 70's and lived here with my mother until he passed away in 2001. I purchased the home from my siblings a few years later and have enjoyed long weekend getaways here since then. It is not a cottage, it is a year-round home. I did not purchase it as a rental, but allowing people to come and visit has allowed me to help pay for some of the expenses, maintenance and improvements associated with the home. My hope is that some day I will be able to retire and move into the home.

Richard Berkfield purchased this house in 2004

Why Richard Berkfield chose Canadian Lakes

If you have Friends or Family living in Canadian Lakes, ask me about the Friends and Family Discount! The rental clients we are looking for are golfers, folks coming up for weddings and family reunions.

What makes this house unique

The area is very relaxing. I go for walks, bike rides, or play a little golf. The courses in the area vary from very easy for beginners to very difficult for the more advanced golfers. There are some great places to eat in the area or it's fun to barbecue on the deck and watch the golfers go by while you sip your drink at the table.

In the Winter I park myself in front of the fireplace and enjoy a good book while I watch the deer walk by in the snow. Very relaxing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I have been renting homes and cottages in Canadian Lakes for several years. This home is by far the nicest and cleanest home we have rented. The home is clean and comfortable. The setting is wonderful, the neighbors are great. When we vacation here we feel like we leave our home downstate to come to our "other home" in Canadian Lakes.

Great condition

  • 4 of 5

Located in central Michigan it offers a great area to travel for day trips.

We went to Lansing, Grand Rapids and Mount Pleasant and home that eve.

The area is a bit remote but very close to several great golf course's and many lakes.

The property is older but has been completely remodeled and is in great condition. The owner is very helpful and will work with you to make your trip a good experience. With a bath and bedroom on each floor it's a great couples choice.

Ideal for anything outdoors

  • 5 of 5

This was everything we had thought it would be - on and near great golf courses, near fishing, near hiking, near Lake Michigan. The owner was an absolute pleasure to work with and provided anything we needed. I would definitely go back.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have rented this great place for three years in a row. First year for 2 weeks in late August thru Labor Day, the second year for 6 weeks, from August thru mid September and last year for 5 weeks. It has always been a very relaxing vacation. The property is beautifully maintained and very clean. It is very comfortable, the golf courses are outstanding and the wild life unbelievable.

We recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a great relaxing time. Richard is a great guy to deal with and has treated us fantastic.

I ENJOYED MY 2 WEEK STAY AT THE BERKFIELD HOME IN CANADIAN LAKES. EVERYTHING WAS MORE THAN SATISFACTORY. I HAVE NO COMPLAINTS WHATSOEVER. MR. BERKFIELD IS A GENTLEMAN AND A PLEASURE TO DO BUSINESS WITH. MY STAY INCLUDED FALL MICHIGAN WEATHER SO THE FIREPLACE(S) WERE A JOY AND THE VIEW OUT OF THE FRONT WINDOWS WAS A CONSTANT NATURE SHOWCASE; ONE THAT YOU COULD ENJOY FOR HOURS. I GREW UP IN THIS AREA BUT DON'T RECALL EVER SEEING SO MANY DEER. I WILL VISIT AGAIN AND WOULD NOT HESITATE TO RECOMMEND THIS PROPERTY TO ANYONE.
