Lexington Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Stepping back into a different quieter time reminiscent of F. Scott Fitzgerald's era (1922), this cottage, formerly a year-round home, has 7 rooms including a 30 foot screened enclosed porch with a great view of the lake and tennis court. It has its own sun deck right down on the water overlooking 350 feet of private beach and the use of 2 kayacs for anyone 18 or older. All rooms have been recently remodeled. There are 3 bedrooms: King, Double, and twin beds that are airconditioned. The mattresses are new as is all the beautiful bedding from Pottery Barn. There is a large functioning fireplace in the front room with an ample supply of split logs taken from our woods across the street. There is also a large library in the living room and very spacious sitting. There is a beautiful antique dining room set in the dining room with seating for six. The kitchen is fullly equipped with a laundry room beside it. The washer and dryer are new and heavy duty. A Picnic table, gas grill, and lounging chairs are right outside the back door. The property is very spacious which allows privacy and often much needed solitude both at the cottage and at the beach.

About The Owner

The owners are Samuel J. McKim and Eugenia McKim,M.D. Sam has practiced law at a large international law firm in Detroit for the past 45 years. He is also a commissioned lay pastor for The First Presbyterian Church in Lapeer. He is a noted author, publisher and an adjunct professor at Wayne State University Law School. Sam's hobbies are hunting, fishing and carpentry work. Eugenia is a pediatrician for the past 33 years with a practice in Birmingham. Her primary hobby is gardening, which explains the extensive gardens at Roehl's Beach.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1977

Why The Owner chose Lexington

Herman Roehl, Sam's maternal grandfather, bought and developed the property in 1917; thus the name Roehl's Beach. Sam, the only grandson of Herman Roehl, bought the property from the estate in 1977 .

What makes this cottage unique

Swimming, boating, gardening, tennis , shuffleboard, horseshoes, croquet and bird watching. We are also very involved in the Lexington Art Council which sponsors many cultural events, the biggest being The Bach Festival, which is in its 11th year and brings musicians from all over the U.S. for 5 full days of wonderful music every September.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I were swept away with both the cottage and the grounds. Only another gardener could appreciate all the hard work that goes into the many perennial gardens. There are rose bushes everywhere which were in their second bloom while we were there. We had bonfires on the beach in the cool evenings and even used the fireplace in the living room one night when it rained. My wife learned to kayac; something I've wanted her to do for years. It was great!!

We had such a nice time staying at this vacation home. It was perfect. The grounds are beautiful. The beach is right there and the owners are very nice. We played tennis on the court outside our cottage, had bon fires on the beach and enjoyed the use of the kyacks. It was not very far from the metropolitian Detroit area but felt like a million miles. I have rented a lot of vacation houses and this cottage is one I hope I will be able to come back to soon.

Map

Roehl's Beach is very private. You will feel you have stepped back into the time of The Great Gatsby and the Roaring Twenties. You are surrounded by beautiful perrenial gardens, 40 tall large flower urns, tennis court, shuffle board, your own private deck stretching out on to 300 feet of private beach, green lawns with adirondecks chairs, kayacs right by your deck, and great bird watching in the privately owned woods across the street. No TVs or internet keeping you in the present very busy world.Instead you'll read from the library of books, watch the birds by day and the stars at night and maybe a good DVD at night from our DVD library filled with Agatha Christie and Dorothy Sayers' mysteries. This is not a place for everyone, but for anyone who wants to truly step back, relax and have a real vacation where you come back refreshed and rested.
