LAKE MISSAUKEE 8 BEDROOM FAMILY RETREAT

Lake City House Rental Photos and Description

House, 8 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 18-24)

FOR SMALLER GROUPS OF 15 or LESS, PLEASE CHECK OUT OUR OTHER PLACE ON LAKE MISSAUKEE http://6bedroomcottage.shutterfly.com/ . (Copy and Paste address to browser). Please note that most of the summer 2015 is reserved already at both places. However, there are many openings in the off-season.

Come relax with extended family and friends in our large 8 bedroom home on Lake Missaukee. This home offers lots of space (5000sq. ft. on 3/4 of an acre) to roam inside and out. Set back from the road, this home overlooks the lake with a beautiful sandy beach. The lake is shallow with a sandy bottom, offering even the little ones lots of fun in the water and on the sand. A boat launch nearby makes 'putting in' easy for all your water sports. To finish out the day on the water, make sure you relax with a fire on the beach. Then rest up on a comfortable mattress for the next day's activities.

The small town of Lake City is just minutes away with its shopping, ice cream and a park. Groceries can easily be found at a great supermarket right in town to stock up the 2 refrigerators of the home. Traverse City is only 45 minutes away with its wineries and Cadillac is 15 minutes away with more shops.

Fall is a beautiful time to visit this area. Contact us for your Fall Get-Away to see the beauty of the colors in Northern Michigan.

Consider our 8 Bedroom Retreat on Lake Missaukee for all your winter activities, too. The trail head for the Miss-Kal Snowmobile Trails is just on the north side of the lake. Skiing and sledding facilities - Caberfae Peaks and Missaukee Mountain - are very near to the Lake City/Cadillac area.

We look forward to you contacting us about your reservation. When you inquire please have two choices for your vacation dates, as the first choice can become unavailable quite quickly. We do keep the 'availability calendar' up to date, but can quickly change in a moment. Hope to hear from you soon.

We do not rent to students or singles under 25 years.

Happy New Years!

  • 5 of 5
We have made it a tradition to go "Up North" for New Years with our families! This beautiful property was exactly as described and did serve as a family retreat for us. The kids enjoyed bundling up and playing in the snow. And the walk to the road and back was perfect for a bit of exercise in the winter air. The men were able to enjoy watching the Spartans win the Rose Bowl as well! We would definitely return to this home again and would love to see it in the summer months!

Fun filled family gathering

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a great weekend at this vacation home. I agree with an earlier review that the pictures don't capture how spacious the home is. We had a large group with lots of small children and never felt crowded. The kitchen was well stocked and the home had everything we needed. My nephew was on call for work and the internet was very reliable making it able for him to stay the weekend. There were lots of kids toys for both indoor and out and the air hockey was an added bonus.

We had a great time down at the beach. The kids swam out to the floating dock and enjoyed the slide and diving board. We cooked over an open fire which was very handy having a firepit by the house as well as at the beach.

Owners were great to work with. Very responsive to calls and emails and made sure things were taken care of. Overall a great experience for our group. We will be back again.

Much more spacious than photos show

  • 5 of 5
My rather large family and I stayed here just this last weekend of May. We were simply amazed by how much space was in the living/dining room. The beach was also nice and outside areas were good to get the kids outside. The lake offered me and my brothers ample opportunity to fish the lake. I caught 10 large mouth bass and 1 huge Northern Pike while my younger brother caught around 15 bass plus 1 that had to have weighed 3 lbs.

The only issue we had was with the pontoon which had a minor fuel leak; which I understand has been completely taken care of.

Really, a very nice house with plenty of beds and two fridges and a game room for when there are rainy days. I hope to bring my family back to Lake City next year.
