About Kurt Heeren

I grew up on this lake and am glad I had an opportunity to find my own slice of heaven on Lake Missaukee as an adult. There is something truly amazing about this lake and this community. Lake City and Lake Missaukee is truly an undiscovered gem in Northern Michigan. MAGICAL!!

Kurt Heeren purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Kurt Heeren chose Lake City

This property has it all. Quiet neighborhood. Steps from the lake. Your own private dock. Large Deck to enjoy the views or BBQ your dinner. Spacious cottage with amazing Front Room. Outstanding views of Lake Missaukee.

UPDATE 2017: Brand new double 6 foot Sliding Glass Doors open to the most amazing views of the lake. Step out the front door on to your large deck and take it all in. Fresh air. Amazing views. Watch nature unfold right in front of you.

What makes this cottage unique

If you are looking to relax, this quiet private neighborhood is for you. The fishing is excellent, even from the end of the dock.

Many evenings look to the North and you may just spot one of Lake Missaukee's resident bald eagles. Relax after an amazing day on the lake on our large deck, or cap off the day by grilling your favorite meal as you watch the ducks and geese fly passed as they settle in for the evening too.

The white sand beach is perfect for the kids, as you can watch them from the deck, or from the Living Room, Kitchen, or Front Room (which has 180 degree views of the beach and lake).

"The Lighthouse" is outstanding

  • 5 of 5

Of course after our 8th stay at The Lighthouse, we knew what to expect and once again we were completely pleased with the accommodations. A very clean, comfortable cottage packed with everything we needed to enjoy our week. We are already planning to return next year. Kurt goes out of his way to make sure everything is ready for our visits. Greg and Mary keep the cottage spotless. We're always looking forward to our week in Lake City.
