Overview

About the property

3 bdrm, 2 bath, sleeps 12, luxury home, waterfront, sand beach, boats included,

Cable Lake Cottage is located in the Sister Lakes area of Southwest Michigan. It is about 2 hours from Chicago, 45 minutes from South Bend, and less than 3 hours from Detroit.

This charming, fully renovated, waterfront craftsman style cottage features 3+ bedrooms and 2 full baths with private beach and central air-conditioning. Our Paddleboat, Kayaks, Rowboat, Stand-up Paddleboard, and sand toys are included. All new floors, brand new kitchen and bathrooms, new plumbing/electric/HVAC/water softener/well, and gorgeous decor will welcome you and give you the perfect luxury lake vacation. Wireless internet is ready for your use. Cable TV, Netflix, Amazon Prime, a DVD player and a large selection of movies provide entertainment when you're ready to relax. Central air conditioning keeps you comfortable all summer. The home easily sleeps up to 12.

Upstairs features a Master bedroom with a new King bed and a crib, a second bedroom with a queen bed and room for a provided pack and play, a third bedroom with two sets of twin bunk beds, and a flex space with a full futon. The lower level family room has a pull-out couch. There is a full bathroom conveniently located on each floor. The main level features a kitchen, family room, two dining areas, and a full bathroom with shower. Central air, heat, and washer/dryer. Linens are provided.

Our home has over 80 feet of private sand beach leading into the gradual entry lake. Excellent for kids! The floating swim raft with reclined seats and a slide offers the best seat in the house. The beach was resanded in June 2016 and is full of soft, clean sand. Adirondack chairs and beach chairs are provided on the beach. The firepit in the sand is a magical place to end the day.

The yard features a large playset with swings for kids and also a Step 2 climber for toddlers. There is over 1200sf of beautiful new decking to welcome you comfortably to the outdoors. The front porch offers a quiet respite to enjoy the birds and trees. The upper level deck is on the lakeside and features comfortable sectional seating and breathtaking lake views. The lower level deck offers direct access to the kitchen and features two dining areas and additional seating.

This home is located on 90 acre Cable Lake, which is a private non-motor lake in Sister Lakes, MI. This quiet, clean lake is perfect for stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, paddle boating, sailing, windsurfing, canoeing, and swimming. The fishing is outstanding.

We also have platted access to a dedicated boat launch less than 1/4 mile away for all-sport Little Crooked Lake (as well as another 5 all-sport lakes within a few miles), so bring your boats and water toys and enjoy the best of both worlds!

Please note that some amenities are stored for winter during the low season. From approximately mid-October through end of May, the pier and swim raft are taken out, watercraft and sand toys are removed and stored for the winter, and outdoor furniture cushions are stored. Amenities are reinstated as soon as weather and conditions are allowed.

About Tali Kulbeda

We are a family of 6 that loves to travel. We frequently rent vacation homes on our adventures, and we know how important a clean, accurately represented, comfortable home is. We love opening our beautiful and tranquil getaway up to guests and seeing the beautiful memories created here!

Tali Kulbeda purchased this house in 2013

Why Tali Kulbeda chose Dowagiac

We chose Cable Lake Cottage because we wanted to invest in a home that we intend to keep in our family for generations to come. We love the proximity to Chicago, the many attractions in the area (wineries, breweries, St. Joseph, South Haven, Kalamazoo, and so much more!), and the resort feel of the Sister Lakes. But Cable Lake is what makes this home so special. Nothing quite compares to the beauty of this clean, quiet, inviting lake, and the beautiful sand beach. We fully renovated this home and enjoyed building our version of the perfect lake cottage. We hope you love it too!

Perfect Weekend

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic place to spend a weekend or week with family and friends.. Tali and her family have put together the perfect home to enjoy! Totally updated beautiful lake home set up right on scenic, quiet Cable Lake. All the toys included. The view is spectacular from the porches, the home is a 10...The lake is in your lap for all to enjoy and is totally kid friendly. Enjoying evening fire pit on the beach is priceless. Couldn't ask for more. Many family things to do in the area. Tali makes the whole experience completely seemless. She is always in contact if there are Q's... We loved it! We are already planning next year.

Thank you Tali,

Larry P

Great time with the family!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect lake home for our family to spend some time away. The house was just as pictured, a great time was had by all. With two young children it was nice to have the use of a crib and pack and play. This was our first time using VRBO and won't be our last. The owner Tali was quick to respond to any questions we had prior to our stay (and during).

Perfect peaceful lakehouse!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of four adults, a 4 year old and 3 year old, and a 9 and 10 month old. The lake access is absolutely perfect for little ones, very shallow. Our preschooler loved the floating dock/slide and we enjoyed all the extra motor free boats. Fishing was great, and you could see fish swimming right near the dock. We had a few questions/minor issues that we texted the owner about and she quickly responded. This was our first vrbo rental experience and it went great. I would highly recommend this property, you can tell the owners have put a lot of love into it.

Peaceful Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect home for a family get away. It truly felt like our home for the week we were there. The attention to guests' needs went beyond the typical rental. From the water craft, to the children's play sets, to the well equipped kitchen, we had everything we needed to relax and enjoy our days. We chose the no motor lake with our granddaughter's safety in mind, (she'd had no previous experience with swimming outside of a pool). To our surprise, everyone (from millennials to seniors), embraced the opportunity to get away from noise and neighbors' activities. There were ample opportunities nearby for those who wanted to be more active, but it was nice to "come home" to peace and quiet at the end of the day, and amazing to start the day with a quiet cup of coffee or a paddle board or kayak ride on what felt like our own private lake. We can't wait to return.
