Dowagiac House Rental Photos and Description

Large 5 bedroom house on beautiful all-sport Magician Lake

Our waterfront home is located on beautiful, all-sports Magician Lake. At approximately 500 acres, Magician Lake is the largest and most desirable lake in the “Sister Lakes” Region of Michigan. It is a spring-fed lake, so the water level is consistent and the water is clean. We are conveniently located two hours from Chicago, 50 minutes from Notre Dame and 25 minutes from St. Joseph, Michigan.

Our Lake House is a two-story, year-round retreat with heat and central air-conditioning. It is a large home with 5 bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms. The Master Bedroom has a queen bed, television, and French doors that lead to a balcony with views of the lake. Across the hall from the Master are three bedrooms (two with queen beds and one with twin beds) and one full bathroom. The loft between the bedrooms has a twin bed and trundle bed to sleep two people. Downstairs is a huge great room that includes the kitchen, another bedroom, full bathroom and powder room. The modern, fully-equipped kitchen has granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, a large table that seats six and four bar stools at the expansive kitchen island. Large windows from the great room and kitchen offer more views of beautiful Magician Lake. Right out the back door, there is a large deck with a table, lounge chairs and a gas grill to enjoy meals outside. The long, private pier offers a place to enjoy sunning during the day and watch gorgeous sunsets at dusk. No seaweed in the shallow, sandy bottom beach makes it ideal for kids to swim and adults to relax on rafts. If it gets chilly at night, start a fire in the fireplace, roast marshmallows in the fire pit or take a dip in the hot tub!

About 6 miles away is the quaint town of Dowagiac with restaurants, stores and an ice cream shop. In addition to swimming and relaxing, other summer activities in the area include renting a boat, golfing, watching a movie at the nearby drive-in, visiting wineries, or apple picking. In the winter months, skiing, snowmobiling or cutting down your own Christmas tree are also nearby.

About Dan Fowler or Kristin Hanna

Our family loves to spend time at our house on Magician Lake. We purchased the land on Magician Lake in 2000, tore down the old house and built a brand-new home in 2001. Our sons have learned to swim, golf, and ride their bikes at our lakehouse. We have also celebrated winter holidays at the lake sitting in front of a cozy fire and relaxing in the hot tub.

Dan Fowler or Kristin Hanna purchased this house in 2000

Why Dan Fowler or Kristin Hanna chose Michigan

We always wanted to purchase a home of our own on a lake. Magician Lake is spring-fed so the water levels are consistent. Also, it is a large lake (about 500 acres) and all sports are allowed on the lake.

What a great stay we just had at this house! Swimming, fishing, cruising in the pontoon boat rented from the convenient marina across the lake, lolling in the hot tub, taking the “Jungle Cruise” down the tree-lined canal that begins and ends on the lake, creating great meals in the well-equipped kitchen, and generally relaxing—what a wonderful way for our family of eight to spend a week on beautiful Magician Lake! This was our second stay in this home and we will definitely be returning next year!

Beautiful home, excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation at this beautiful home. The lake is right outside your door and our grandchildren loved playing in the lake every day. The house was well maintained and had everything we needed. We rented a pontoon boat for the week and could use the home's dock for easy access. Our group included 8 adults and 7 children, and there was space for all of us. Kristin was so very very helpful with all of our inquiries and requests. Highly recommended!!
