Overview

Michigan House Rental Photos and Description

Our home will be available in September. We had a guest check in for 3 months last November. They loved it so much they stayed through the summer!

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Dawson's Lake House, in beautiful Oakland County, is the perfect place to spend your holiday. This 3 bedroom , 2 bath waterfront home is located in a very quiet neighborhood. We feature a beautiful kitchen complete with granite countertops and stainless appliances.

Bring your boat and it's just a short boat ride to Sylvan Lake; enjoy water skiiing, jet skiing and many other aquatic activities.

The house is located on Dawson's Millpond ... what a view! The area is renowned for birding. Goldeneyes, Redheads, Canvasbacks, Hooded Mergansers, Wood Ducks, Canvasbacks, Tundra Swans and other species.

We are within 30 minutes of all Metro-Detroit has to offer. 10 minutes to the Palace. 10 minutes to MM Picture Studio and lakes all around.

Dawson's Mill Pond is part of the Clinton River. The water is moving in front of the house and swimming is not recommended.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This house is located in a very quiet neighborhood with a fantastic view of the lake. It is very clean, well-maintained and very relaxing. It is truly a home away from home with lots of space, wireless internet and cable television. The owners are very accommodating and gracious. I was lucky to find this treasure!

The house was clean and nice with plenty of room for my family. I have two kids 4 &7 who love swimming and the beach. I was very disappointed that Dawson's beach house didn't have a beach at all. The pictures made it look like a beach which I assumed you could swim from, but there was no beach only a small amount of dirt by a tree and very weedy water that was not suitable for swimming. You have to drive to another lake if you want a beach. I wish I would have known...

Owner's Response: Amy, I'm happy that you were satisfied with the comfort of our home. The view and atmosphere is remarkable. As far as swimming, we have added the following to our description. Dawson's Mill Pond is part of the Clinton River. The water is moving in front of the house and swimming is not recommended. I'm sorry if that was not communicated to you.

Lovely location

  • 4 of 5

This home had a great location on a small lake in the northern suburbs of Detroit. Our ten year old particularly enjoyed the dock, lake and resident swan. The house comfortably sleep 6, but the living room had comfortable seating for only 2. Another couch or comfy chairs would be nice. Also, the can opener was broken, making getting into part of our dinner plans difficult. Plenty of clean linens. A little more laundry detergent would have been nice, if you fly in for a week, you don't really want to go out and buy soap for 4 loads. Good supply of pots and pans, but NO extra kitchen ammenities. Sugar and some basic spices would have been helpful.

The owner was prompt at responding to emails re: various questions. Overall good, a few extra touches would make it better.

Tom and Vicki from Ohio

We were looking for a place to spend a long weekend and found this property on-line. It is a very clean property and can easily accommodate 6 people. My husband and I enjoyed sitting out on the deck overlooking the water and made friends with the local squirrels by setting out some mixed nuts for them. You'll find the house to be open and spacious and in a very quiet neighborhood; even though the houses next door are very close, we rarely saw any people. The only drawback to the property might be that if you were with a larger group, I'm not sure the water pressure would accommodate more than one shower at at time. I definitely waited to run the dishwasher until after we had taken our showers. There was an ample amount of dishes and cookware to allow you to make any number of items for a meal. The appliances are top of the line and everything was clean and in good working order. Always love having a dishwasher when we are vacationing so I'm not spending a lot of time at the sink washing dishes. Thanks Scott and Krys for allowing us the opportunity to spend time in your home.
