My mother and dad bought the Strawberry lake property in the early 80’s. It was intended to be their place to escape to....quiet peaceful, great fishing and lots of visitors. Eagles, river otter, loons, deer, “etc.” Their first cottage on the property was a 25 foot used trailer that Dad bought for $500 dollars - not the huge home you see now.

Michael Mshar purchased this house in 1982

If you look in the lower level bathroom you will discover the hole in the concrete floor where dad sunk a well point 4 feet into the ground water for our drinking water. Before we could use it, Dad had it tested and the chemist wanted to know where he found such pure water. Being an engineer, my dad knew that the source was the springs that feed Strawberry Lake. By the way, if you wondered about the name “Strawberry Lake,” in the summer the flowers that bloom in the lake look very much like Strawberry plants.

My dad designed the house with of course input from Geri, my mother. They constructed the basement first, and used that for a weekend getaway until they built the rest of the house in 1991. The house was designed to function as an entertainment center with the Lake as the focal point.

Fourth of July (Mom's birthday) always found the house crowded with visitors...Mom’s brothers and their families from Wisconsin and many local residents just dropping by. There have been several weddings at the lake including mine, and my sister’s. Mom liked to cook and was very good at feeding lots of people, so the holidays were always busy. She would cook for the many deer hunters who visited the house for the annual November 14th party. I do however believe that her favorite occasion was the annual “Thanksgiving Dinner.”

The house truly is a four season playground . It can be a serene, healing experience, or a place bubbling with a variety of family activities - swimming, fishing, volleyball, and the older folks playing cards on the spacious decks soaking in the energy of the lake and the forest.

This was the best vacation my family has had. We rented the house with 2 other families, This makes it affordable. Having internet but no cell service is the best. We went there knowing we would be back in the woods and we were right. The fishing was great. Watching my 11 year old catch a 16 inch bass with a Barbie pole is priceless. Absolutely no complaints.
Thanks for the memories.

Just got home from our visit to this property. It was a true Northern Michigan experience. Beautiful quiet lake. We had an age range from 3 to 87 and all had a great time. Boating,fishing and fires on the beach were a hit. Great local golf and tubing on the Muskegon (J&J's in Evart is outstanding). Did a day trip to Traverse City and had a great time. Amenties in the house were great. Owner took care of the little things noted in other reviews. No problems with the hot water heater etc. There was something for everyone. It was a great week.

We thought that a better use of the living room would be as another bedroom with a queen bed. Really enjoyed our stay.

July 6-13 Strawberry Lake house review

  • Submitted: Jul 16, 2013

The house is set-up very well for large gatherings and the setting is beautiful. Be ready for a memory-making time. As well, the lake and surrounding woods are wonderful (loons on lake)! We thoroughly enjoyed having the use of the pontoon boat, kayaks, canoes, etc. and the wonderful fishing! Also, the owner is very responsive to any issues you report that need immediate action and a great person to rent from. We did find, however, that the house is in need of attention/many minor repairs. In the kitchen: the range hood is non-functional; microwave and frig ice maker sometimes functional; some cupboard doors are loose/fall off when you open them. The kitchen sink has stains/is in rough shape. The water heater is an on-demand type and does not always provide hot water when it is needed or for a long enough time. The windows haven't been cleaned in a long time. The upstairs shower has rust stain/some mold and smells...in need of a good, thorough cleaning. Basement bathroom is also in need of more thorough cleaning. One other minor, but, annoying thing was that there are not many hooks/towel bars in bathrooms to hang wet towels on.
So, in general a beautiful, serene place to stay for a large gathering, but, the house needs some attention and repairs to make it fully worth the price.
Also, be aware you will need to clean the entire place before leaving. The other rentals we've stayed in thru HomeAway do not require this type of cleaning...it is hired out by the owner and paid for with a cleaning fee. We would have gladly paid a cleaning fee.
Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. As always I appreciate the constructive critisism as I want the guests to enjoy there stay. I was unaware of the issues with the range hood and microwave and can only fix things when I am advised of them. I would have gladly had someone come out and repair those or other issues if I was made aware of them at the time. I have advised the cleaning company of areas that need more attention so that should be resolved. As for the On demand, you are correct it is just that on demand and does run slow when all three bathrooms and washers etc are being used at once. I make sure guests are aware of this in the home description. As for the whole house needing to be cleaned I am not sure where you got that from. What is asked is that you start a load of towels and strip the linen off the beds and leave the house clean as you found it. Again, I am more than willing to fix any issues etc as long as you make me aware of them when they are going on. Thanks and have a great summer.

We had an adult weekend get away with 12 of us in our party. What a fantastic place to stay. Quiet, private, beautiful water and beach area, gorgeous home with plenty of space and just an all around great relaxing time. The house is 'off the beaten path' but that only added to the adventure of getting there and feeling like we were truly on vacation from everything. Great weekend to reconnect with friends and get away from the business of our daily lives. Thank you for such a wonderful getaway and we do plan on returning next year if possible!
