About Tom Kennedy

We're the Kennedy Family from Ann Arbor! Two brothers and one very patient wife. Tom & David enjoy most sports (golf, soccer, biking, etc) and Melissa is an Ironman athlete. We all love water sports and relaxing on the lake with friends.

Tom Kennedy purchased this house in 2011

Why Tom Kennedy chose Michigan

Like many Michiganders, we grew up going "up north" and have fond memories of life on the water. The only downside to those trips was the inconvenience of travel - which limited our use and ability to enjoy with friends. After a 3 year search for the place that had it all, we instantly fell in love with this place and were thrilled to purchase it back in April 2011. Now we enjoy it during weeknights and weekends, with friends or as an escape from everyday life. The lake is perfect, the neighbors are friendly and you can't beat the convenience. We could not be more excited to have this place and share it with others!

18th Birthday Celebration

  • 5 of 5

The owners were very nice and easy to work with. Our family rented the home for a week on the lake to celebrate my daughters 18th birthday. She loved the home and time on the lake. Lake Chemung is a great lake because of the public access and sand bars with water volleyball nets set up for public use. This made it very easy to entertain ourselves. We appreciate the special memories we now have!

Cozy Cottage on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 plus two babies stayed at the Lakefront House over the Christmas holidays. The house is exactly how it is photographed. Very cozy, extremely clean, with beautiful views and more than enough space for our gang. You feel like you're at a cottage but only minutes from the highway, and even less from shopping and restaurants . We went to the Detroit Zoo, did lots of shopping at the outlet malls and the boys caught a Lions game. Tom was always there to answer questions both over the phone and e-mail. The home overlooks a beautiful lake that would provide lots of entertainment in the warmer months. We would highly recommend the Lakefront House.

Beautiful and quaint, can't wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

We visited this property in early October to celebrate my husband's birthday with nearby friends and family. We were so pleased with the house that we will definitely come back. The pictures don't do it justice. The big open room and kitchen on the bottom level were fantastic for cooking and entertaining large groups. We filled the house to capacity and had 12 people stay over one of the nights and everyone was very comfortable. Everyone that visited commented on how great the house was and we absolutely agree. We entertained for four days and didn't ever want or need anything that wasn't provided. The weather was cool so we didn't get to use the boat, but we got the benefit of the gorgeous fall colors surrounding the lake from the great room, kitchen and deck each day. The house was beautiful, clean, and had all the comforts of home. The owner was wonderful in answering our questions prior to our arrival and made the entire process extremely simple. We hope to come back next summer to enjoy the lake a bit more. I would highly recommend this house and we're so glad we chose it in spite of it having no reviews posted. I hope this review helps others make the decision to stay at this gem of a home.
