Southeast Michigan House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 6-10

You will love the beauty and calm of of this amazing lakefront vacation home. The deck is a perfect spot to watch the boats go by or sit out by the lake and bask in the warm sun. Children love the large sand area and swim area. Boating down the river is an adventure you will not want to miss.

A perfect location, close to Ann Arbor, Lansing, Detroit, and Chelsea- each area offering something for every traveler. In the fall fishing and boating are even more relaxing! Campfires with som'mores for the cool nights is the best way to end the day. ( Firewood is provided.) It is like being up North and away from it all. The fall colors are here now, call us today!!!

The Holiday seasons are fast approaching, if you want a beautiful place to stay, make your reservation now! We have parking spots for the entire family, so no worries about inviting your family and friends over for the day! Why worry about your college student driving home for vacation, come to Michigan and celebrate here!

Lakefront living: Our home is fully equipped to provide a wonderful vacation for you and your family or friends. In the early morning get up to enjoy the sun rising over the lake. It's beautiful. Later sit out by the dock to watch boats go by, if you get too hot take a dip in the lake. In the evening, a campfire is a must bring your favorite campfire food! Then go for late night ride to experience the starry night and the full moon, its so relaxing...

Children love our home for the swimming, fishing and the large sand area in which to build sand castles.

For our summer guests we have a pontoon boat and a canoe included at no additonal charge! If you want to explore all of the lakes, we have maps of each lake and directions for you. The Huron River is beautiful and it is an experience you shouldn't miss. Call us today and book your summer vaction now! Your family will have a great time!

What to do, when you're not on the lake???: For your dining pleasure, you can boat to Zukey Lake Tavern. It is appropriate for the entire family, and has a vast menu. Go on a Wednesday night for their delicious large specialty pizza and receive a free Zukey Lake Tavern Tee Shirt. There are many wonderful other dining experiences within a 5 mile radius, just head to M-36 and go in either direction. Need more information, goggle Hamburg, Pinckney area for a list of current attractions and resturant choices. Yes, we have wireless internet, just bring your lap top.

For the Golfer, there are ten public courses within ten miles, My favorite places are the Links At Whitmore Lake and Whispering Pines Golf Course. The Links is very reasonable and offers an unique golfing experience.

For the shopper or movie buff, head into Ann Arbor or Brighton

For the those who enjoy walking and riding bikes, the Lakeland Trail is less than 1/2 mile away. You can ride all the way to downtown Pickney and Beyond! (20 mile path) We have six bikes and helmets for your use. Also for those who want a serious dirt biking experience the Pinckney Recreational Area near. (You would need to bring your own bike for that trail!)

Fall and Winter on the Chain: The Huron River Chain of Lakes in the fall is beautiful. The abundant wildlife is easier to see, and the flocks of birds heading north overhead is amazing.

Football fans travel here to attend the nearby football games at the University of Michigan, they enjoy the peace and quiet at the end of the day!

We like to decorate the house for the holidays, so your family photos will be complete with a decorated tree and the fireplace will have stockings to fill! The holiday dishes are available for your use, and your Christmas table will be beautiful! After dinner relax around the gas fireplace for coffee and conversation with those you love. Please call if you have any special needs to make your holiday special and complete!

Great house for Christmas.

  • 4 of 5

Great holiday home! The owners decorated for Christmas, including a tree, which made our stay extra special. The house is much lovelier than the pictures portray; the layout is spacious and the cathedral ceilings make it perfect fora large gathering. The bedrooms are spread out for privacy, and there were plenty of linens. Very well equipped kitchen -- and all with a lake view. Convenient to Ann Arbor, with lots of fun eating & shopping. We enjoyed our stay very much.

Wonderful Place to Spend Thanksgiving!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent Thanksgiving here to visit our daughter ( a UMich student) and go to the football game on Sat. Robert is easy to work with and responds quickly to all questions. The pictures of this house do not do it justice! It is roomy, has a good layout for privacy and is very spacious and comfortable. The kitchen is the best stocked in any vacation house we have ever rented and we were able to cook a full holiday dinner no problem! The deck facing the lake is huge (although we didn't use it) and would be a great hangout in the summer. I would definitely rent here again. Just hope no one beats me to it for Thanksgiving of 2017! Thanks Robert!

Magical Wedding Location

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home was the location for our lakefront wedding! We couldn't have asked for a more perfect spot to say, "I Do!" Robert and Marian were more than helpful. They made sure the house looked wonderful and helped with the planning of our special day. Boats ventured up during our ceremony to look on as we exchanged vows, and many offered a "toot" of their horn as we were pronounced husband and wife. After the ceremony, our friends and families shared in our special day with a backyard barbeque. We received much praise from our guests about how perfect our location was. Many said this was the best wedding they had ever attended!! Our week continued after our magical wedding with beautiful morning views and daily trips out on the boat and kayaks. We swam, fished, kayaked, went boating, and shared countless family memories during our stay at this beautiful home. We are looking forward to our return trip to this home!

Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time on Strawberry Lake. The house is at a perfect location on the chain of lakes. The house is beautifully decorated and is very cozy. I love the deck and has alot of room to entire a large party. Rob and Marian were very hospitable with fresh flowers and left us cake from their family party. The house is equipped with all necessities! Our young kids loved it with the huge sand box by the lake and the fishing. They caught lots of fish not far from the dock. We used the pontoon daily and went thru alot of gas. Pizza was fabulous at Zukey lake tavern! Neighbors were very friendly. Would love to spend time with the family again! Awesome place!

beautiful anniversary getaway

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this pinckney lake house and celebrated my 30th anniversary. My Husband and I loved our time by the lake! we canoed, basked in the sun, and cooked a scrumptious dinner in the houses lovely kitchen. It was very Romantic time! our kids came to visit and enjoyed swimming and exploring the lake, although there was enough room for them to stay we kicked them out to enjoy the spacious house to ourselves. I would definitely suggest this house to a family, you can canoe or drive to the famous zukey lake tavern. this was a great getaway, thank you to the owners! we had a wonderful time.... I recommend this house, its a really beautiful place!

Great home, great views, great times!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great home to simply relax in and enjoy the Michigan summers. The kitchen is huge and the bedrooms are spacious as well. The hardwood floors and tile throughout the house are really nice for the summer and the floor to ceiling windows make it feel like you're always on the lake. In the afternoon/evenings, the sun shines from behind the deck, so you can kick back and enjoy the view of Strawberry Lake in total comfort. The house is in great condition and is situated near the end of a quiet street.

We highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a retreat!

Relaxing Lakefront vacation home, located on beautiful Strawberry Lake, part of the Huron Chain of Lakes. Spend your days cruising the six major lakes and your nights around the campfire. Great location for those who want a unique vacation experience that is not too far from home. Our home is not a cottage, it is a modern beautiful year around home. Close to Ann Arbor, Chelsea, Brighton and Metro Detroit, so rainy days are not a problem. You must visit Brighton or Chelsea if you love great resturants and small town charm. Check Detroit's list of fun places to visit, the list is endless.
