Agape Acres is located in LeRoy, MI just 20 miles south of Cadillac and 5 miles off US-131. Come get away from it all and relax in this peaceful, quiet, and private setting. The lake is about 5 acres, big enough for fishing but too small for speed boats providing lots of peace and quiet. Nice bass, perch and blue gill can be caught. The deepest area of the lake is about 12 feet and is easily fished from shore. A 12' row boat is available for your use as well as a paddleboat. Life preservers are available. You can cook your catch on the grill or bring steaks if fishing isn’t your fancy. The fire pit is always popular to make hotdogs or s’mores. We have a variety of family friendly movies available on DVD. DISH TV & Wi-Fi is available if you want to stay connected to the outside world. Linens, cookware and dishes are provided. All you need to bring is the food.
Pets considered for an additional $50 per week. For the health and safety of our guests the owner is responsible to clean-up any dog poo in the yard.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful property with us. Lots of rest and lots of fishing. Just what the doctor ordered!
The cabin was exactly as described online. We were delighted with how close the cabin was to the lake. My teens enjoyed being able to use the rowboat and paddle boat, and fish as much as they wished. The fishing action was great. We especially enjoyed catching the 12" perch!
I was impressed with how the cabin provided so many comfortable amenities. It was definitely a cut above the state park cabins we've rented in the past. Not only were the beds clean and comfortable, and the towels plentiful and thick, but the owners had provided so many other thoughtful touches. The kitchen had all the comforts of home - even a waffle iron and a pastry blender! We enjoyed using the herbs and spices that were provided.
Outdoors, the fire ring had ample seating for our family of six. Fire starters, roasting sticks, and insect repellant were provided. There was even a stand where we could assemble our somemores! We enjoyed the wildlife too. We found a spotted salamander, a large snapping turtle, and lots of birds. We even saw a porcupine. At night, the stars were spectacular.
We enjoyed the cabin's proximity to Sleeping Bear Dunes (1 1/2 hours) and Ludington State Park (1 hour).
The owners were caring and responsive to questions. On the drive home, I was delighted to discover that our security deposit had already been refunded.
We would definitely recommend Agape Acres to anyone wanting a northern Michigan get-away!
What a great place! We have vacationed in lake houses for years and have never come across such a well appointed home. And - it really did feel like you were going to your OWN 2nd house instead of someone else's.
Definitely recommend and would stay there again.
Only detractor was that the previous group somewhat abused things on property and also burned up all the wood provided for the entire season. While the cleaning crew took care to fix what they could see, we noted a couple of things at the beginning of our stay which required repair but when notified, the owners took care to send someone immediately.
Also to note - beware if you use the Wi Fi. We were so used to unlimited and thought we curtailed our use, but did go beyond what was allowes. A lesson learned for us but be sure to check how much you regularly use before trying it here.
I've rented many properties in Michigan in the past but, none as Tranquil as this one. The cabin was beautiful and we really enjoyed having meals out on the deck and our dogs loved it too! We spent 5 days here and would be happy to stay again in the future. The fire pit was great to make smores on and stare up at the stars. I truly would recommend this place to anyone (couples, family's or groups for friends). This is a true gem...
We had a wonderful week away! The cottage was exactly like the picture and then some. It is very comfortable and felt just like home. It is very clean and well maintained, and everything is there for you. All we had to bring was food. There were even condiments and spices for us to use. The water was a little cold to swim, but the fishing was awesome. We were out on the water every day, for most of the day and just loved it. We caught lots of bass, perch and blue gill in the boat that was provided. There are life jackets to use also. We had a campfire at night that was all ready for us...all we had to do was light it! Dennis and Leona are wonderful owners and were very accommodating. If you want a relaxing family vacation, this is the place to be. There is a Wal-Mart about 20 minutes away and they have everything you need. We went into Leroy to the little market and the people there were so nice. They are kind and helpful. Leroy is a small little township, with old world charm. I have already recommended this cottage to all my friends and family, especially the fishermen! I will definitely be back. Thanks Dennis and Leona for the special care you put into your property to make everyone feel at home.
Great cabin, great pond, great fun!!! This cabin has everything: fishing rods, lures, spice pantry, condiments, towels, soap, books, you name it, its there! The cabin is beautiful and has a nice deck. The property was very peaceful and we had the water all to ourselves. I would recommend the place to anyone who wants some peace and quiet and like catching big bass and large bluegill from the shore. Lots of biting flies and mosquito's...we bought downy drier sheets with us which seemed to keep the flies away and lots of deet for the mosquito's.
There are some issues that one should be aware of. There are bear that roam around the water. We did not see them, but the neighbor across the pond came over to mow the lawn and told me he had seen one on his property a couple days earlier so we kept the kids close and no late bonfires for us. While we were on the shore fishing, a young coyote walked up to us, we tried to shoo it away, but he just ignored us. He came back and forth for a couple days, so again, we stayed in when it got dark. My 4 year old daughter was swimming close to the shore and when she came out of the water she had a small leach sucking on her thigh, so we kept her out of the water. About half of the pond has surface weeds, making it tough to fish from the boat, but we did catch big bass from the shore each day. The wifi only worked a few minutes a few times a day and since cell signal was also on and off, receiving email and using the internet was pretty tough for the week.
All that being said, it was still a 5 star vacation for us! Awesome place and incredibly kind property owner!!! We feel blessed that we found the place and will have lots of memories to share for years!!!
This is a wonderful place to relax and unwind. The property is immaculate. The owners are great to rent from. If you need a break from routine and want a quiet place to retreat to please consider this property.
