About Steve Goffar

My wife and I are both Midwesterners but the Army has taken us away for 25+ years. The Lake house in Ellsworth is that place that brings our family back together. We love the privacy of the wooded location and the great beach. The gentle slope into the water is great for the kids and the boating is great. We hope you'll love the house as much as we do.

Steve Goffar purchased this house in 2009

Why Steve Goffar chose Northern Michigan

Northern Michigan is a beautiful area that evokes images of the wonderful times we shared with our friends and family in our youth. The lake is beautiful, uncrowded and still offers all the opportunities for fun expected on an all sports lake.

What makes this house unique

This is a fantastic lake house that offered us amenities that were uncommon in other cottages. We are able to enjoy the beauty of the lake and wide open property without giving up any of the luxury you expect from a fine home.

Loved the beach area - enjoyed playing in the sand with our granddaughter. The home has plenty of room to relax and enjoy family time.

Quiet area - very peaceful. Short drive to quaint towns for shopping and sightseeing. We'll definitely be back!

Terrific stay

  • 5 of 5

This is the 3rd time I have stayed at this property. It is quiet, secluded and has many activities right on the property. The pictures are very accurate regarding the condition and space. Very enjoyable. The owner and managers are great to work with and assist whenever necessary.

Beautifu and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Our family had never been to northern Michigan but had heard of the beauty of the lakes and surrounding towns. We rented this property to be on a lake, have privacy, and to get 'off the grid'. The property and are fulfilled and exceeded our expectations. From the comfortable sleeping arrangements to the golf cart down to the private beach, dock, canoe, and paddle boat. All of it was great. We bought fishing poles and the kids enjoyed catching fish right off the dock. We took the canoe out and fished and enjoyed the nature all around. Owners were easy to work with and very responsive to booking requests and payment processed. Close by are many lakes and attractions like Macinau island, Torch Lake, Cherry Festival, pick-your-own orchards, and restaurants. We had a wonderful time and highly recommend to anyone looking to get away for a little, yet be close enough to many activities.

Home away from home...only better!

  • 4 of 5

First time taking a family a vacation and it was a big hit! The house is large and comfortable, the grandchildren loved the sandy beach area and of course enjoyed boating on the lake. Plenty of room for everyone, kitchen well stocked and the views from the deck were beautiful. Sure we will do it again!

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Awesome stay at the lake house. A tranquil and relaxing setting with the lake and small stream just outside your door...we couldn't of asked for a better place to stay to have our family gathering. There are a pair of loons on the lake with 3 babies...what a site to see and hear. The fishing was great! The paddle boat and canoe were an added plus to an already fantastic vacation. The house is huge but welcoming! We will definitely stay here again.
