Life is Always Great (Again!) on Stone Lake - Lakefront Living - Stay Together & Play Together

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.

Our spacious deck offers the best views of the lake while having breakfast or grilling with the family. Our sandy beach is a stones throw away and fenced in yard makes it safe for both children and pets and ample onsite parking along the property for everyone.

Got Sun?

This fully furnished lake front home is situated with a gorgeous view of the beach and lakefront, open space and shade trees. 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 Kids?

Awesome! We do too (Eight - yes really) Kids will go wild (and be out of your hair if need be) swimming and exploring the lakeshore. 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 Stone Lake Family Retreat Home (VRBO 346053) offers 2500 sq. ft of comfortable living space (5BR/4Bath) with 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.

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 (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 8 kids and two grand-kids do.

Kevin Weber purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Kevin Weber chose Cassopolis

We bought this Cottage as sister property/guest house to our other listing (VRBO 346053) 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 cottage unique

Combined with our other property we have 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.

Amazing time!

  • 5 of 5
We showed up with a fairly large group of 25-30 years olds (about 11 of us) and 2 dogs. Everything was clean on arrival and as promised. Deck was huge and fit us all perfectly. The kitchen was full of basic necessities for cooking that we didn't expect to have. And of course... fires on the beach + the awesome pontoon boat made the weekend. A little bit of fishing/ bbq'ing/ swimming (after finding a spot without seaweed) - all a great time. City nearby has all the basic necessities and the organic farm has a fantastic selection of meat! Just be prepared as the incline from the beach to the house is a bit steep but doable. The smokers in the group had to deal with it :) Dealing with the owner and property manager was painless - really nice people! Overall a great time. The much needed weekend escape from Chicago that we hoped for.

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5
I was looking for a lake cottage for my little dog and myself for a couple of days. This cottage was charming and cozy; very clean and comfortable. I didn't use the beach or the boats. It rained the entire time I was there but enjoyed the quiet. The fenced in yard was great for my dog too. I loved the jetted tub! I would stay there again any time!

NO!

  • 2 of 5
Very disappointing. Boat package was awful. Pontoon didn't arrive until a day later. It was a musty, old, rickety thing. The seating was all torn and the foam stuffing coming out; it didn't have a top so sun blaring down on your head. The floor was torn up. Told that the real pontoon was broken by previous guests and this is what I got If I had known or seen a picture no way I would have agreed to going to this place. It was unfair not to disclose the situation until i was already there and too late to go home. . Of course a day before we leave a spiffy pontoon shows up for the "owners." No discount for the condition of this thing. The lake was filled with weeds and lilly pads. Forget about swimming in it. The home next door, owned by same owner, shares the beach. In our case a family of 12 using the house next door drew a line in the sand and took over our pier. It was the most unwelcoming experience ever. Inside, we were unable to open the kitchen door that leads to the deck cause the screen door was missing. The grill was grimy and hadn't been cleaned for a while so couldn't use that either. The dishwasher didn't do a good job so we hand washed dishes. And the jets from the tub were so filthy that we dared sit in the tub. Seems like quantity and flipping the unit was of greater priority than quality. It has the potential to be much more than it was for the price. Stick with St. Joes.

OUTSTANDING summer vacation rental!!!

  • 5 of 5
This is the perfect summer vacation rental! Went up with a group of guys and we had an amazing time. Large kitchen and living room with a huge outdoor wooden deck for relaxing. The grill was very new and worked great. Perfect distance from the beach with plenty of grass and sand for outdoor games. I would recommend this rental to anyone looking for a relaxing weekend on the water!

Family Lakeside Peace

  • 5 of 5
This house is a lovely hideaway for a family wanting to get back to nature and enjoy the peace and tranquility that lakeside living has to offer. It has an open plan living room / kitchen, 3 bedrooms, bathroom, great deck (with good gas BBQ) overlooking the garden running down to the lake and a well equipped basement with washer dryer and loads of space for storage. The private jetty and boat (with optional motor) are a wonderful feature that enable you to take full advantage of the lake for swimming, fishing or just relaxing on the water.
The immediate area in and around Cassopolis is quiet but fun to explore. The restaurant in the big hunting / fishing store Lunkers in Edwardsburg is a must for a family dinner (and all your fishing needs), and the meat shop on S.OKeefe St is great for all your BBQ needs.
We would recommend it for all those looking for a great family experience.
