About Richard Berkfield

My father built this home in the late 70's and lived here with my mother until he passed away in 2001. I purchased the home from my siblings a few years later and have enjoyed long weekend getaways here since then. It is not a cottage, it is a year-round home. I did not purchase it as a rental, but allowing people to come and visit has allowed me to help pay for some of the expenses, maintenance and improvements associated with the home. My hope is that some day I will be able to retire and move into the home.

Richard Berkfield purchased this house in 2004

Why Richard Berkfield chose Western Michigan

If you have Friends or Family living in Canadian Lakes, ask me about the Friends and Family Discount! The rental clients we are looking for are golfers, folks coming up for weddings and family reunions.

FALL GOLF / COLOR SPECIAL: Enjoy a Fall color or golf weekend (Thursday evening through Sunday afternoon) for $300 plus $100 cleaning and linen fee. Check in at 4:00 PM Thursday, check out at 4:00 PM Sunday (Three night stay).

What makes this house unique

The area is very relaxing. Go for walks, bike rides, or play a little golf. The courses in the area vary from very easy for beginners to very difficult for the more advanced golfers. There are some great places to eat in the area or it's fun to barbecue on the deck and watch the golfers go by while you sip your drink at the table.

In the Winter park yourself in front of the fireplace and enjoy a good book while watching the deer walk by in the snow. Very relaxing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I have been renting homes and cottages in Canadian Lakes for several years. This home is by far the nicest and cleanest home we have rented. The home is clean and comfortable. The setting is wonderful, the neighbors are great. When we vacation here we feel like we leave our home downstate to come to our "other home" in Canadian Lakes.

Cozy, homey and we'll maintained. Loved the location and peaceful atmosphere. The frequent visits from deer and turkeys made the perfect setting. The view of the Highlands golf course was awesome.

Our Summer Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to escape the Arizona heat, thus we went in search of a quiet, clean, comfortable and enjoyable location. Richard's property was perfect for us. Everything was exactly as represented and illustrated. We did not lack for any amenities throughout our stay - everything we needed was provided. Richard proved to be highly helpful by providing us a steady stream of relevant information as to activities.

We took great advantage of the many activities at Canadian Lakes as well as the surrounding part of Michigan. We golfed several times, canoed with the canoe Richard provided and placed at a nearby boat launch, rode bicycles he provided, attended Canadian Lakes concerts, picnics, fireworks, went to the beach, used the library - well the list goes on and on. Clearly, we entirely recommend staying at this lovely home!
