About Daleen Harper
My wife were both raised in Farmington, Mi. We moved to the Pickney Recreation Area about 27 years ago.
Daleen Harper purchased this Cottage in 1998
Why Daleen Harper chose Washtenaw County
The cottage property borders the property of our fulltime home. We purchased this cottage to gain access to the lake and to keep a boat in the water.

Cozy little cottage by the lake. Lots of amenities. The place is very well cared for, super clean and the owner is very friendly and helpful. Nice remote location away from the big city. Lots to do in the area, trails, metro parks and right by half moon lake. Highly recommended. Good places to eat in nearby Pinckney and Chelsea.
As we visited the lake house in March, it was chilly outside but warm and cozy inside. Thank you for a well equipped and clean cottage. The hot tub was wonderful. The views from the porch were picturesque. We are looking forward to visiting again.
Cozy Modern Lake House
Lovely vaulted ceilings, nicely furnished, friendly neighbors. It was very easy to get in and out of the cabin with the electronic locks. The hot tub had a great view of the lake!
Bill was very accommodating in all we asked of him.
Beautiful view of the lake, modern cabin with many amenities. Very comfortable bed, cozy dining area.
Great weekend trip
Could have used a little more hot water :) but other than that the lake house had everything we could need for a weekend away.
This place was very clean, with all things we needed. I would love to stay here again. Awesome stay!
Thousands of acres of State land surrounding a chain of 7 lakes. Because so much of the land around the lakes is owned by the State, the lakes are much less developed than most other lakes in southern Michigan. Wildlife abounds and some of the natural scenery rivals the beautiful lakes of northern Michigan. Come see for yourself, you'll be glad you did.
