Lake City House Rental Photos and Description

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

Enjoy panoramic views of lovely Lake Missaukee from this 3 bedroom/2 bath, four season, family luxury vacation home. Our home is newly remodeled and is considered the nicest rental property on the lake. Families can enjoy the new dock with a private platform at the end. The lake is clear with shallow waters and a sandy bottom that makes this an ideal summer vacation spot for families with young children.

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 Northern Michigan

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.
