This is a beautiful updated cape cod style home on Pontiac Lake in Oakland County, Michigan. This is one of the largest lakes in Oakland County and the Pontiac State Recreation Area (3800 acres) surrounds about 1/3 of the Lake. We have some of the best mountain biking/hiking trails and fishing in the State. You can also rent a horse, pontoon boat, or a fishing boat. If it's winter time we are minutes from Pine Knob Ski Area and Alpine Valley Ski Area: the snowmobiling is also great at the Park.. We are about 30 miles from downtown Detroit here in the Lake Country; and about 25 miles northeast of Ann Arbor.The house is minutes from many restaurants, movie theaters, LA Fitness, car wash, grocery store, etc. The home is located on a bay with spectacular views and it is a very quiet location. The house has a fully equipped kitchen, high definition widescreen TV, cable and wireless internet, The studio has a full size Gandy pool table; also a ping pong table top.
The house has 3 bedrooms, 2 with queen size beds, the other with a twin size bed. There is also a twin size roll-away bed and 2 full size cots that can be used. There are 2 full size bicycles and a fire pit for a camp fire. The house is actually on an Island, you have to pass over 2 bridges to get here. It is quite private and a nice place to take a walk or a bike ride! We have a nice dock for swiming, and a nice aluminum paddle boat with life perservers. The gardens are nice with perrineals that are designed to have flowers all summer. The house has central air conditioning and a natural gas forced air furnace.
We decided to spend a local vacation in Southeastern Michigan, but this Place made us feel like we were in Northern Canada! We cooked good food (the kitchen is well equiped) and spent alot of time just laying around enjoying the Place. The HDTV and Internet work great! You will really enjoy your stay at this Property!
My daughter's softball team had a tournament in Southern Michigan and a few families wanted to stay in a house instead of the normal hotels for this type of trip. I will tell you, all the parents in the group were jealous they were not staying with us. Clean, comfortable, accommodating for all ages and simply a very fun place to stay. 3 Large Mouth Bass tournaments were on the lake and many boats fished right in front of the dock, they caught a ton of fish. From the pool table, ping pong table, grill, this place had everything we could ask for. Jim, Thanks for accommodating and helping us with our memories from summer softball.
Great place! We had a great time! We rented the house over New Years so it wasn't your typical lake vacation. The kids loved skating on the lake, which is right off the patio. It snowed every day we were there which was perfect for outdoor hockey on the lake. The house is very nicely laid out for a family with lots of room. It has a lot of character and charm. I would definitely recommend this place. I am sure it is lovely during the summer.
Wonder stay. Property was well within driving distance to everything. Beautiful view of the lake. Everyone raved about the house, hopefully next winter we will be able to rent again.
The house had everything we needed for a peaceful and relaxing stay. It was well decorated for the season; there was a pumpkin on the counter and more. We made chili in the crock pot and soup on the stove, Our family loved the pool table and the deck out front. We were a short distance from Indian Springs State Park and our nieces wedding. Even the fall colors were there for us to enjoy. Thank you so much for letting us stay.
Thanks James for allowing us the use of your home. Our trip was great !!! Camp fires, fishing and boating my kids got to see Michigan at its best . The pool table is a great touch My Family was never bored. i will miss drinking coffee on the patio and watching the ducks swim as the sunrises. i could get use to the lake lifestyle close enough to the city for the sights far enough away to relax... The Allen's Las Vegas, Nv
My family and I had an absolute blast during our stay. The house offers the best of two worlds...secluded enough to enjoy the sounds of nature, but not so far off the beaten path to make a quick run to pick up more marshmallows for a late night smores fest.
The house is very well appointed and I definitely recommend it for all who which to enjoy a quiet intimate experience with love ones.
