Overview

Lake City House Rental Photos and Description

Cottage on the lake, 8 Bedrooms + Bonus Room, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 18-24)

(Please be aware that the "instant quote" is not always correct with the listed prices.)

Come relax with extended family and friends in our large 8 bedroom home on Lake Missaukee. This home offers lots of space (5000sq. ft. on 3/4 of an acre) to roam inside and out. Set back from the road, this home overlooks the lake with a beautiful sandy beach. The lake is shallow with a sandy bottom, offering even the little ones lots of fun in the water and on the sand. A boat launch nearby makes 'putting in' easy for all your water sports. To finish out the day on the water, make sure you relax with a fire on the beach. Then rest up on a comfortable mattress for the next day's activities.

The small town of Lake City is just minutes away with its shopping, ice cream and a park. Groceries can easily be found at a great supermarket right in town to stock up the 2 refrigerators of the home. Traverse City is only 60 minutes away with its wineries and Cadillac is 15 minutes away with more shops.

(Partial summer week rentals in mid June and mid August will be considered after Memorial Day Weekend.)

Fall is a beautiful time to visit this area. Contact us for your Fall Get-Away to see the beauty of the colors in Northern Michigan.

Consider our 8 Bedroom Retreat on Lake Missaukee for all your winter activities, too. The trail head for the Miss-Kal Snowmobile Trails is just on the north side of the lake. Skiing and sledding facilities - Caberfae Peaks in Cadillac, SnowSnake Ski in Harrison, Cross Country Ski in Roscommon, Hanson Hills in Grayling and Boyne Mountain - are near to the Lake City/Cadillac area.

We look forward to you contacting us about your reservation. When you inquire please have two choices for your vacation dates, as the first choice can become unavailable quite quickly. We do keep the 'availability calendar' up to date, but can quickly change in a moment. Hope to hear from you soon.

We do not rent to students, singles under 26 years. The property is not rented for weddings.

Excellent Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

Property was clean, very spacious, beautifully situated by the lake.

Also as a bonus, the construction of the house makes it very sound proof. Meaning what is going on downstairs won't wake up the people up stairs, so when the kids go down for bed they will stay asleep.

Definitely would recommend and will return in the future!

Memorial Weekend Fun!!

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family has enjoyed this home for three years and each year has been fantastic. The home is spacious, clean and well equipped. When the grill broke the first day, Jan's family purchased a new grill and brought it to the home within an hour. They are so willing to answer any questions or help out if there is a problem which we have not experienced other than the grill. It has been a bit cold for swimming on Memorial Weekend, but there were those who still swam to the platform in the water to sunbathe. The younger children thoroughly enjoyed playing in the sand at the beach area. The home is close to town so our teens were able to enjoy a little tennis and basketball at the city courts and, of course, we visited the incredible ice cream shop!! We would return in 2016 except we have a family wedding. Jan

All what you need for a great weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This great place offered enough room for 20 people to get together and create everlasting memories. The house is well equipped with everything that you need in and out (kitchen, pit fire), rooms were cleaned and spacious, and the living big enough to fit all of us for table games, karaoke and a dance. The fall colours are speechless in this period of the year and we look forward for a week in summer.

Thanks for having us!

Happy New Years!

  • 5 of 5

We have made it a tradition to go "Up North" for New Years with our families! This beautiful property was exactly as described and did serve as a family retreat for us. The kids enjoyed bundling up and playing in the snow. And the walk to the road and back was perfect for a bit of exercise in the winter air. The men were able to enjoy watching the Spartans win the Rose Bowl as well! We would definitely return to this home again and would love to see it in the summer months!
