Beautiful home with large yard and great beach tucked away at the end of the street for a quiet retreat.

We both grew up downstate but Lake City has always been our vacation destination until 2006 when we moved up here. Wayne retired from GM after 30 years and now works full time at a Young Life camp as a landscape supervisor. I am a dental hygienist currently only subbing and a full time Nana. We both enjoy the outdoors: biking, boating, walking, gardening, golfing and traveling to beach destinations.
Wayne or Marilyn purchased this house in 2000
Wayne's grandparents and parents both retired in Lake City. We brought our children up in the summer every weekend to enjoy the beach, boating , volleyball and all the water sports. Wayne in his youth camped with his family all over the state of Michigan but they always wanted to come back to Lake City because of the large sandy beach and warm water. We purchased this home from Wayne's parents and have been remodeling it over the years. We have a quaint, quiet town which is only 3 walking blocks away. It is the best location on the lake. Walking distance to the county park and the city center ( restaurants and ice cream shop noted for the largest ice cream cones in the north.)
The beautiful, tranquil views of the Lake from every room. Bedrooms that will accommodate 10 people .Location, location, location!
We had a wonderful time at Wayne and Marilyn's home in Lake City. The home was clean and very nice to stay in for the week we were there. The lawn is beautiful and we could enjoy all the comforts of home. Wayne and Marilyn are great hosts and we could use all the beach chairs and toys. We took walks to the ice cream shop, played tennis, did all the water things including fishing. Thanks for all the fun times and memories our kids and grandkids will remember fondly. We really appreciate all you do to make it a great vacation.
We had a wonderful week of vacation in Lake City. The house was very clean and well maintained. It had everything you could ask for in a vacation rental. The outside lawn and beach access were perfect for all the kids. We enjoyed smores by the campfire and relaxing in the hammock. If you are looking for a memorable week by the lake, then this is the house to rent.
We have rented many homes on HomeAway before, but this was by far the best rental! From the moment you walk in the door you feel like you are at home. Wayne and Marilyn are the nicest people and provide all the comforts of home, all you need to do is bring your clothes. The house, the yard and the lake are absolutely beautiful! The pictures do not do it justice. Even though the beach is public, we saw only 2 people the entire week. It is very private so no need to worry. The location is excellent, close enough to many attractions. I highly recommend the drive to Mackinac. Thank you so much Wayne and Marilyn for a wonderful family vacation and we look forward to coming back!
Wayne & Marilyn......Thank you for sharing your beautiful Home with our Family.
This was our second Family trip to Upper Michigan and this trip far exceeded our expectations. Lake Missaukee was the perfect location for a relaxing get away. Everyone loved the Beach and spectacular views from the patio.The kids all found their favorite fishing spots and watersports activities. Everything was just so convenient in Lake City, all just a 5 minute walk away. We have already told our friends about your home and we expect to be back again in the near future.......Thanks for Everything !
P.S....The new Internet Service worked perfectly. Everyone was able to check up on e mail and connect their Tablets with no problems.
We loved staying in this beautiful home. Everything was immaculately clean and furnished with high quality furnishings. It's located in a very quiet neighborhood with a beautiful sandy beach. The landscaping was so beautiful we felt like we were living in a park. It truly is a home away from home, and comes complete with everything you need.
If we could judge our next vacation home by the chatter in the car on the way home, this home was the perfect vacation abode. We had been looking for a first time full family vacation home accommodating ages 3m to 91! We found it in Wayne and Marilyn's lovely home. If cleanliness is truly next to Godliness. We were in heaven! Very clean, warmly decorated with family pictures and cozy charm. With the full house amenities to wood for the fire pit we wanted for absolutely nothing. The size was perfect for our family of 10 and an infant. A lovely lake view bedroom on the main floor close to a bath was perfect for Great Grandma. An extra TV room upstairs was great for the kiddos for special movie watching. The landscaping was beautiful and having only to walkout the back door for beach access was perfect. For the timid first timers the shallow warm water with sandy bottom was absolutely wonderful! The home had access to other wonderful memory makers as well. We won't forget the nightly walks to the best ice cream in town just down the road one way. The children thoroughly enjoyed other walks to the park just a walk around the corner the opposite. This home had so many wonderful attributes. Wayne and Marilyn were so very nice and you can tell they have a great pride in their home. We thank them so very much for sharing it with us.
Our location is centrally located. It is 50 miles south of Traverse City and the Wineries of Leelanau and Grand Traverse Peninsulas.

Closer to home we are nestled between the resort towns of Houghton Lake and Cadillac , only a 15-20 minute drive where you will find Meijers, Super Wal-Mart and many chain restaurants and movie theatres.
