About Joe

My name is Joe. I'm a home improvement specialist. I am also a vocalist and singing is my greatest love besides my beautiful wife Renee.

Renee is and Pastor of a small church in Royal Oak and is well known in or city for all her loving outreach. She also is a very accomplished speaker.

Joe purchased this house in 2009

Why Joe chose Gladwin

We both fell in love to the gathering place by the fireplace the moment we walked through the door. We have made a lot of improvements on the property since we purchased it in 2009. We enjoy the mix of water play and nature at our end of Wiggins Lake.

What makes this house unique

We looked at a lot of properties on many different lakes before purchasing this home. Most lake properties we explored had very small yards and/or they were too steep. Our property is big enough and has a gentle slope to the waters edge and is great for play on land as well as in the water. We also enjoy all the twist and turns of our lake. There are several different coves to explore. Also it is so nice to have a bug free area to enjoy at night. Sitting in the screen room and listening to crickets and frogs is so relaxing. A great break from the city life!

Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We rented this property, the property next door, the pop-up camper, and the pontoon boat. We enjoyed the quiet relaxing week on Wiggins lake with the loons and swans. The two king-sized beds were perfect and the basement had lots of room for our kids. There whole family was comfortable hanging out inside but we especially enjoyed cruising around in the pontoon boat, catching a few fish, and kicking back by the fire pit for s'mores and pudgy pies. We sat by the fire on July 4th and watched fireworks all around us, why sit in traffic in town? Joe was a great host, thank you for a wonderful vacation!

Great Time With great friends

  • 4 of 5
We rented the cottage from Joe and had a wonderful time, there was 13 of us (three families). The pontoon was a big hit, we got a lot of use out of it. The cottage description was accurate, and it was very clean. We would recommend the cottage to others. We also rented the pine cottage where all of the kid slept in, it was nice that they had there own space. We really enjoyed the sand bar as well. The kids age range from 18-11, and not once did we hear them say that they had nothing to do.

Everything thing we hoped for and more!

  • 5 of 5
When we arrived at home we were very impressed immediately, has enough space to accommodate our family. Nice and clean, quiet spot on the lake, basement was a great spot for the grown sons to hang out and get away from their 2 1/2 years old niece.my husband was happy with the fishing. We will for sure book again for next summer. Kitchen large and plenty of cookware. pontoon was nice I would recommend renting it along with the cottage. My husband didn't even put his fishing boat in the water. Golf course around the corner is a nice course.

family fun

  • 4 of 5
we had a great time at joe's house on wiggins lake! the dining room was made for a bunch of grandkids to play games with their grandparents and parents. the fishing was decent., the guys and and kids even caught enough fish for us to have a fish fry and with15 people that is a lot of fish! they caught quite a few pike, perch, crappie and bass. joe's pontoon boat was worth renting for sure! we took the kids tubing,knee boarding,wake boarding and down to a sand bar to play and swim. the pine cottage was perfect for the grand kids! I would recommend this house to any family looking for a relaxing, fishing and water sport vacation, and the shops in town were very nice too! thanks joe for a sweet vacation!

Owner's Response: You're welcome Linda and family. I had a big smile on my face as I read your review. I'm so glad you all had fun on your vacation. That's one of the reasons that I decided to offer our home for rent. It's so nice to share of our joy with other people.
Thanks again

Comfortable home on a quiet lake, very relaxing!

  • 5 of 5
The home was nice with everything we needed.Fully stocked kitchen with everything you need to make dinner and a huge gas grill. We loved having the pontoon boat to do some fishing or cruise around the lake. The owner was always reachable in case we needed something and very friendly. The town of Gladwin was nice with a few restaurants and coffee shop. Also had a place to khaki, canoe and tube on the river. We enjoyed ourselves greatly!

Hi, if you're reading this, look no further for the perfect getaway! We had our sons 5th birthday party and 28 of our closest family and friends up to Joe's cabin (all did not stay overnight, but probably could have!) and everyone raved from the wonderful sandy beach to the pontoon and so many other amenities! Having wifi is just another perk as we had teens and young adults who were instagraming and tweeting from the lake! The basement kitchen was SO handy for serving a large group, and the walkout deck was excellent for entertaining. The beds were very comfy and the newly remodeled bathrooms (1 with a tub) were beautiful and functional, perks for those us with little kids! When you first walk in, the views from the upstairs living room were very impressive! Lots of seating and the breeze up there was amazing. My family is already talking about making this a yearly event. Joe could not have been more accommodating, and we really liked that were could refer to the youtube videos if we had any questions about the boat. I really recommend that you rent the pontoon, the cruises around Wiggings lake was a highlight that everyone really enjoyed. The kids also loved the canoe and the paddle boat too. Aside from the wonderful accommodations at Joe's, the people of Gladwin were so friendly and kind, that's what I love about Michiganders, some of the best people in the USA!

Owner's Response: Hi Tracee, I'm glad you had a wonderful time. Thank you so much for the wonderful review. I need to inform you and any future guest that I do not allow that many people on or in the property. Had I known that you were planning on inviting that many people I would have had to say no . There are many things from my perspective that needs to be considered. One being septic overload, 2 Extra wear and tear on the property and much more use of the the pontoon then reasonable. Taking all your extra guest for a ride was not considered when I set the rate. I really did not appreciate that. Also it says clearly in the lease no outside guest unless approved by the owner. I set these rules so that the house remains very nice for our next guest . I realize that you did a really good job cleaning and left the home in the same condition as when you arrived , for that thank you . I want guest to have fun , but at the same time I have to draw a line on what is acceptable. Thanks again for your great review.
Joe
