Life is Great on Stone Lake!

In our family, vacations are about enjoying life and making wonderful memories- together. Life is too short and quality time to scarce to waste on ordinary experiences. So when we are looking for vacation destinations and four season fun, we say go big or stay home.

Is your family like minded? If so, then please consider making memories on our 1.5 acres of lush, terraced, manicured lawn, with mature oaks and 300' of beautiful lakefront on tranquil Stone Lake.

You get the best of both worlds all year long with the convenience and luxury of 2500 Sq. ft of comfortable living space (5BR/4Bath) and the lake views, open space and large trees worthy of a state park. This home accommodates 12-14+ guests (More if you want to stick the kids in a tent by the lake shore) and comes complete with DUAL KING MASTER SUITE'S WITH PRIVATE BATHROOMS. One with an authentic jacuzzi two person tub and a private glass sliding walkout to enjoy your coffee while watching the sun come up over the lake. The other with stunning views of the entire property. Regardless of whether it's Spring, Summer, Winter, or Fall, there's something for everyone.

Got Sun?

This fully furnished lake front home is situated with a football field's worth (yes it's true) of lake front, open space and shade trees and ample onsite parking. This property is perfect for a romantic getaway or a large family gathering, with cookouts, campfires and even tent camping by the shore, all while overlooking all sports Stone Lake. Skip stones off the dock and admire the beautiful and historic Cass County Courthouse in the distance across the lake. It's our little piece of heaven.

Got Rain?

Want to stay in? Life is still Great on Stone Lake! The fully furnished lower level recreation room complete with a bar, LCD TV, electronic dart board, and........Brunswick pool table (that converts easily to a competition ping pong table) whew!! Oh, it also offers 12' sliding glass doors for walk out access to the truly HUGE concrete patio with over 750 sq ft of grilling (on our COMMERCIAL GRADE GAS GRILL) and entertainment area (Yes, we go crazy big!)

Got Kids?

Awesome! We do too (Eight - yes really) Kids will go wild (and be out of your hair if need be) swimming, playing on the swing set, exploring the lake shore, pitching a tent by the shore or just playing games in the large yard (did we mention it's like a football field?) Are you worried that the kids will whine if it rains because there's no X-Box? (Don't worry we got you covered there too with an X-Box 360, but bring your own games.)

Got Snow?

Book in the winter and ice fish in the annual Stone Lake ice fishing tournament. Got kids or are young at heart, sled down one of our 250' hills or hop over to Swiss Valley Resort 20 minutes (13.77 miles) away to get your ski or snow board on!

Got a Huge Family (Like Us)?

We've got good new for you! We own another property right next door!

Our adjacent Stone Lake Family Cottage (VRBO 414250) is a cedar sided beauty that sleeps 8-10. Its spacious deck offers the best views of the lake while having breakfast or grilling with the family. Its sandy beach is a stones throw away and fenced in yard makes it safe for both children and pets.

If the dates are available, rent both properties to host 25-30 guests. Each with stunning views of the entire property. Regardless of whether it's Spring, Summer, Winter, or Fall, there's something for everyone.

Got Boating Needs?

Great!, We also have an onsite boating package rental available (additional cost) that includes a paddle boat, canoe and Pontoon, see rate section for pricing. Please bring your own water toys, etc., there's plenty to do.

Got a Request?

Looking for anything else? Let us know and we'll see what we can do, but please first call to reserve your week of memories you won't forget.

We hope you will come stay with us and experience why 'Life is Great on Stone Lake!'

With much Love and Fun,

Kevin & Kyra Weber

About Kevin Weber

Growing up in Michigan and Ohio respectively, we have always loved the outdoors and healthy lifesyle that it brings. Life is Great is one of our family motto's (another is no Whining!) and we hope you enjoy our lake home as much as our 7 kids and two grandkids do.

Kevin Weber purchased this house in 2005

Why Kevin Weber chose Cassopolis

Plain and simple, we bought this property for our family to enjoy all year around. Not just the views which are truly beautiful and the serenity they bring, but also the large lush lawn and mature trees. Being close to Diamond Lake, Notre Dame, Swiss Valley Ski Resort, Chicago and Detroit doesn't hurt either. :-)

What makes this house unique

With over 1.5 acres of lawn and 300' of open access lake front, we truly feel we have the best of both worlds, a great house, a large open yard for games and entertainment with mature oak trees, deer who visit and easy access to beautiful Stone Lake. Come winter, we can sled down one of our 250' hills, ice fish or hop over to Swiss Valley 25 minutes away to get our ski or snow board on.

Guys Weekend

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for our guys weekend of golf in the area. Normally we get hotels. Not this time. House was perfect for 14 guys. Kitchen, dinning and living room are open to hang out together in the mornings. Big enough yard for lawn games. Massive grill to feed everyone together. Once night fell the pool table, ping pong table and dart board kept everyone busy. If willing to share a few double beds and sleep on some couches everyone has a place to sleep. They do have some pull out cots. We stayed here in April. I can believe it's even better in the summer months when the lake can be used. The guys were questioning the house/area before they arrived but in the end all of them thought the place was perfect. I would recommend this place to anyone and I am planning on returning again with family and friends.

Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My family, 8 adults and 2 young children, had a great four days at Stone Lake. The two master suites and three smaller bedrooms worked perfectly for us. The three smaller bedrooms had just enough room for beds and were off the kitchen, but since we were there for family time, it worked great for us. The kitchen was well appointed with everything my son, who is a sous chef, needed to prepare our meals. We used the outside area a lot, and enjoyed the firepit two nights of our visit. While there, we took a trip to Round Barn Winery (45 minutes away) and South Bend Zoo (30 minutes away). But the day that was my favorite was the lazy day we spent at the house. We played billiards, cooked and drank the day away. We were lucky that our weather was perfect. After reading other reviews, I was a bit wary about a few things, but the owners were easy to deal with and I received my deposit check back within two weeks with no hassles. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Great time!

  • 4 of 5
My family and my husband's family rented this house for Labor Day weekend and we all had a great time! Kevin was a great host as well as his property manager. We had more people than we expected to stay at the house and more cars but they were more than accommodating to our needs. A few minor things that we encountered at our stay: 1. The fire alarm needed it's battery changed and was beeping when we got there; 2. There was barely any propane for the grill; 3. The motor for the pontoon wasn't working and didn't have any gas. All of these were taken care of right away, the property manager was there to welcome us and took care of our immediate needs. If you do stay here, we recommend renting the boat package. We spent the entire weekend on that boat! We also discovered a trail across the street from the lake house. And, the center of town was a few minutes away so if we ran out of something it was close by. All in all, we really enjoyed this place and recommend to anyone with a big family!

Yearly Vacation Rentral for Memorial Day

  • 4 of 5
The house was clean and updated. The lake was small, we rented the pontoon which was very nice. We did catch a lot of fish. The patio area was very nice. The only problem is you cannot access the backyard from the kitchen. You have to go through the basement. The bedrooms were a little small but clean. The other issue was the amount of bath towels you get. Only 2 per bedroom, so you have to constently wash the towels so you can have a clean one for the next day.

The best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5
"It doesn't get any better than this" is the phrase our family of 15 used over and over during our week stay at Stone Lake. The house was so well appointed for our needs, especially the kitchen. The pool table was a huge hit with the teens and dads. The pontoon was well worth the renting. We spent hours on the lake swimming, fishing, and just relaxing. The beautiful patio furniture made our family dinners special. The quick access to little Cassopolis made groceries and gas easy to replenish. We "old folks" appreciated the privacy of the suite downstairs. The family with the small children enjoyed the other bedroom with bath upstairs. All beds were comfortable, even the sofa bed in the living room.
(that was the review of a teenager who can sleep anywhere!). We couldn't find a blender anywhere and think that would be a nice addition to the kitchen.

Our two year old loved the dock, beach, and water. There are lots of weeds but no one in our group complained about it. They swam in the lake both on the beach and out in the middle off the pontoon. The boat we brought was perfect for this small lake and we rode, water skied, fished, and tubed every day. The boat house could use some cleaning up.

All in all a great experience and a real blessing to our family.
