Large, private, upscale home on small, quiet lake within the Canadian Lakes Resort.
Located in the heart of michigan's Amish countryside, this home is surrounded by quiet wooded areas and abundant wildlife (watch for deer as you're driving!). Wild turkeys may stroll down the road each day and loons may visit in the evenings. Looking for someplace where you're always in the midst of noise and activity? This is not the place for you! However, if you're looking for a tranquil get away, where your children can kayak and fish safely without fear of power boats, and where you can easily visit the more active, bustling water areas and then return to peace and quiet - this is that place!
