About the property

Spectacular 3BR/2BA Lakefront Home with Panoramic view of beautiful Lk Missauke

Enjoy panoramic views of lovely Lake Missaukee from this 3 bedroom/2 bath, four season, family luxury BeachFront vacation home. Our home is newly remodeled and is considered the nicest rental property on the lake. Families can enjoy the private new dock with a large private platform at the end. The lake is clear with shallow waters, no rocks, a very gradual decline (great for kids) and a sandy bottom that makes this an ideal summer vacation spot for families with young children. Enjoy the outdoor large hot tub while viewing our beach and lake. The King Swedish Tempur-Pedic® bed eliminates pressure points allowing for a restful night's sleep. A two-block stroll brings you to restaurants and ice cream shops. A county park with playground equipment is a short walk (150 yards) down the beach. Skiing, golf, and shopping trips are less than 20 minutes away. Once you fill out the information below, I will receive your e-mail and will e-mail back a complete description and registration form, including directions, to you.

About Tom Gibbons

I am a Corporate Banker for Huntington National Bank in Grand Rapids, MI. My wife teaches 6th grade in Kent County.

Tom Gibbons purchased this house in 1997

Why Tom Gibbons chose Lake City

We bought this property because we wanted a BeachFront home that had a beach like in Florida that was all sand and no rocks or muck and with a very gradually decline. This is the best beach and the best sandy bottom that you could find.

What makes this house unique

We provide a full array of items including a new gas grill, central air, wireless high speed internet, cable TV, 5 bikes, 3 kayaks, 1 Stand-up paddle board, and a 22 foot pontoon with a 115 HP motor that looks runs like brand new.
