About Property Management

We are a fun-loving family with 3 children. We grew up in Northern Michigan and Northern Indiana. We both love being around the fresh water. We have lots of family that went to University of Michigan and most of us settled in this area. We built this home in 2003.

Why Property Management chose York charter Township

We fell in love with this property before it was even available for purchase. We always wanted to build a home on a lake. We modified the plans to give each bedroom a view of the lake and the sunsets.

What makes this house unique

Waking up to a lovely view of the lake is a wonderful way to start the day. We enjoy the lake in many ways - swimming, fishing, canoeing, paddle boating, sitting by the bonfire, watching the sun set. It's a great place to gather and enjoy each other and nature's beauty.

A Wonderful Time

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely everything you need for a family or a group of friends to have a wonderful time. Endless activities to do in or outside of the house with a very helpful, responsive host as needed. We arrived to some tasty drinks and snacks and would stay again in a heartbeat. Thank you!

The Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My group had a great time at this home. It holds 10 comfortably with large common areas both upstairs and downstairs. The kids loved the air hockey table as well! If you are ok staying a little bit outside of Ann Arbor and have a large group this is the place to stay!

Great experience for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

We had 8 people in the home for a Michigan football weekend. Everything with the house was great. Having a large yard and the lake right in the back yard made for great entertaining. The host was very helpful and responsive via e-mail and phone. There was a mixup with the lock box code, but it was immediately resolved with a quick phone call. Highly recommend the house. We may be back!

This was a great home for an extended family gathering! Everything you could possibly need, and a charming location on the lake. Home was minutes away from Ann Arbor, but very much "in the country." Our hosts were very helpful and made sure everything was perfect. Highly recommend!
