House and lake are perfect!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful holiday!! We had an amazing time at Keeler lake house! The house is beautiful and very well maintained. Plenty of room for all. We had a group ranging in age from 10 -70 years old and everyone had great time! Great beach area with paddle boat, paddle board, kayaks , and fishing boat. Kids had fun playing in the yard, swimming in the water, fishing and chasing frogs. The lake is quiet and peaceful, loved just sitting and enjoying the view from the big yard. As a side note, the people on the lake are all very nice and friendly.

Great Gathering Place

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed for a week with 9 adults and 1 child, and we had an absolutely wonderful time! The house is definitely a home--a place you can walk into and find yourself at rest. I find the gathering space to be the most important for vacations, and the Keeler Lakehouse had a large enough kitchen for lots of hands to pitch in, and two huge tables so everyone was able to eat together and play games together. The loft upstairs offers another gathering space for games. The pictures don't show it, but there is another outdoor table now; it seats 8-10, so large groups can be accommodated outside for dinner together too.

The view of the lake from the house is wonderful. The yard between the house and beach is great for playing yard games. It's just a few steps beyond the grass and you are on the lovely beach. There's plenty of nicely groomed sand to spread out and everyone can do their thing. The only downside to this lake house is the bottom of the lake. If you are big swimmers, you won't like the deep muck and sea weed. We aren't swimmers, though, so we didn't mind too much. We raked out a section for our granddaughter to frolic in and all was good. The paddle-board, kayaks, and fishing boat were used all the time. Such a nice plus! All the life jackets are there too. You could always take the fishing boat out into the middle of the lake if you wanted to swim, I suppose.

The bedrooms were great! Nice bedding, furniture. Great bathrooms. The water from the tap isn't good, but the water dispensed from the fridge is fine. Laundry room is awesome. There's a ping pong table in the garage--so cool!

Other than groceries and beach towels, there's not much else needed to bring. The property manager Michelle is very helpful and kind.

We would HIGHLY recommend the home for your family to enjoy a memory-making week like ours. Many thanks to the owners for sharing their treasure with us for BronkBash ( our yearly family vacation).

Beautiful home and view with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect getaway for our young family and grandparents. Plenty of room for the 7 of us to spread out, kids loved all being able to share a room above the garage! Plenty of toys for the yard, and by the water too! Paddle boat, motor boat and kayaks made it extra fun for the adults! Kids loved playing basketball on the driveway and badminton in the yard. They were very happy and busy and that made it wonderful for the adults 😊 Kids explored and played outside all day! House is very clean and inviting. Lake was nice a quiet, especially during the week. Peach and apple picking nearby! We have rented every summer in Michigan all over and this was by far the best!
