About Joe

My name is Joe. I'm a home improvement specialist. I am also a vocalist and singing is my greatest love besides my beautiful wife Renee.

Renee is and Pastor of a small church in Royal Oak and is well known in or city for all her loving outreach. She also is a very accomplished speaker.

Joe purchased this house in 2009

Why Joe chose Northern Michigan

We both fell in love to the gathering place by the fireplace the moment we walked through the door. We have made a lot of improvements on the property since we purchased it in 2009. We enjoy the mix of water play and nature at our end of Wiggins Lake.

What makes this house unique

We looked at a lot of properties on many different lakes before purchasing this home. Most lake properties we explored had very small yards and/or they were too steep. Our property is big enough and has a gentle slope to the waters edge and is great for play on land as well as in the water. We also enjoy all the twist and turns of our lake. There are several different coves to explore. Also it is so nice to have a bug free area to enjoy at night. Sitting in the screen room and listening to crickets and frogs is so relaxing. A great break from the city life!

gorgeous Sandy beach

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this gorgeous beach house. I call it a beach house because of the amazing beach that the children enjoyed daily! There were also 2 paddle-boats & a canoe that kept the older kids entertained. The house is at the end of one of the lakes "fingers" which was perfect for the kids to take the paddle boat out by themselves w/out really leaving our eyesight! The house is quaint & provided the space we needed. We also rented the cabin (which the older kids LOVED) & was also able to rent the house next door (we had a large group). The covered patio & swing was used daily. Everything was fantastic. We had a GREAT time at this house & would come back. More than what was expected was provided (stocked cupboards, towels, beach toys, etc...)

Great Summer place for the family!

  • 5 of 5

We recently rented the Wiggins Lake home from Joe. There was plenty of room for three kids, Mother-in-law, my wife and I, and our two dogs. We enjoyed fishing from the dock and pontoon, relaxing on the beach, in the water, around the campfire and in the home. We definitely suggest renting the pontoon along with the home, we had a blast driving around the lake, hanging out at the sandbar, and meeting the friendly neighbors. Thanks, Joe!

Great summer place for the family!

  • 4 of 5

We recently rented the Wiggins Lake home from Joe. Plenty of room for 3 kids, mother-on-law, and my wife and I. We enjoyed fishing from the dock and pontoon, and the kids and dogs loved playing on the beach and relaxing on the lake. If you do rent, I suggest taking advantage of renting the pontoon as well. The lake is great and full of nice people. We met some neighbors and hung out at the sandbar and had a blast.

We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation on Wiggins Lake

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation week for our family of 8 adults and 4 children. There was plenty of room for all of us, especially since we rented the extra little cottage for our one couple who don't have any children (it gave them a quiet sleeping hideaway!).

We rented the pontoon boat, and so glad we did as that was a daily enjoyment for all of us. We brought our own tube and rope for tubing, and had a blast cruising the beautiful Wiggins Lake. The lake is big and has 4 or 5 finger outlets to it. One has a wonderful sand bar where the little ones (ages 2 -5) enjoyed playing in and where the adults sunbathed on the pontoon boat and tubes. The property has a nice shade tree for shade lovers and sunny spots for the sun lovers. The little ones enjoyed the sandy area near the water for playing. Joe was very accommodating during our week stay. He was available via text or phone for any questions or needs we had.

We enjoyed nightly campfires and the guys hit the nearby golf course one morning. We had one rainy afternoon and found ourselves watching a movie that the house provided, as well as a card game or two. The house was also equipped with games for the kiddos to play. We appreciated the AC for the warm days. We also liked having the second kitchen downstairs, equipped with another refrigerator, stove, table/chairs, and all the kitchen amenities. The screened in porch was nice as well as the handy bathroom just inside the ground level patio door. Loved the love seat swing and lounging chairs outside. We don't rent a vacation home every year but will definitely consider this home again when we do! Thanks Joe for opening your home to us for a wonderful getaway!!

Great place to go!

  • 5 of 5

Joe's home was very nice and spacious for our group of 11 (3 adults, 2 teenagers, and 6 kids). The partially finished basement was a great place for the kids to hang out. Plenty of seating upstairs for everyone. The beds upstairs were super comfortable! The sandy beach area was fun for the kids. The swim area was small, but weed free. The only downfall was that it wasn't deep/large enough for the teenagers to be able to swim.

Thanks for sharing your home with us!

Owner's Response: Thanks Amy for the great review. I'm Glad you enjoyed your time. As I had told you when you initially inquired, the water is about 3-4 feet deep out in front of my home. I also encouraged you to rent the pontoon for your teens who you said wanted experience deep water swimming. I'm sorry that was the downfall for you as you knew this before you arrived. Again I'm glad you enjoyed your time, thanks for staying with us. Joe
