About Donald or Kimberly LaForest

We both grew up in Michigan and have always loved all that the four seasons have to offer. Snowmobiling in the winter and golf and boating in the summer, and lets not forget the beautiful fall colors and the morals in the spring.

Donald or Kimberly LaForest purchased this house in 2012

Why Donald or Kimberly LaForest chose Northern Michigan

Great fishing. Less than one hour to many other northern Michigan destinations.

What makes this house unique

Private, peaceful, quiet lake. This is ideal for those vacationers looking to get away from it all and enjoy the quiet beauty northern michigan has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We snowmobiled on Friday. Saturday went shopping. Out to dinner at Marsh Ridge. Favorite moments were playing cards with our daughter & husband. We don't get to do that much anymore.

We had a wonderful stay here. Nice and clean and loved having the washer and dryer. We would recommend this to some of our friends back home that also come up here.

Could use a few more little skillets for frying eggs and some plastic utensils and a toaster.

We enjoyed our stay here very much.

Great vacation home!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week at this home and very impressed on how clean it was. Very spacious and roomy. The fact that towels and bedding were provided was a bonus. Washer and dryer too. My 3 boys loved fishing off the dock, pontoon boat rides, paddle boat rides and nighttime fires. We loved the location. We were able to travel to the upper peninsula for a day, Petosky for a day and went canoeing and kayaking in Grayling. Would highly recommend this home!!

Fabulous, Fun and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this home. Everything was clean, paper products, towels, sheets and kitchen items were all provided, which was GREAT! There was 10 people in our group, 6 adults and 4 kids, and we had a fabulous week. The kids really enjoyed fishing off the dock and swimming. The lake was so peaceful, most days we were the only ones out in the water. The boat was such a great bonus! We have ORV's and were able to ride right from the house to the trails. Highly recommend staying here. Thank you! We will plan on returning soon!

The house was wonderful! It was very clean and had everything we could need. It was on a private lake, with no-wake allowed and was so quiet and peaceful! I would definitely recommend this setting for anyone seeking a relaxing vacation.

This place met all our needs for our family of 6 adults & two grandchildren 7 & 9. It was clean and had a nice layout. The deck, gas grill, dock, boat, lake were very nice & the garage was a plus for the bikes,ect. We hope to stay here again next summer. Thanks Don & Kim!

All Season Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had our first vacation in Michigan. The trip was wonderful and relaxing. The home that we rented was very clean and accommodating. The owners were wonderful to work with while booking our vacation rental. This was our first experience renting this kind of property. This was a positive experience and would love to recommend the property. The lake, boats, and home are a vacation all in itself; the state is another beauty to behold!

Located on the 45th Parallel. We are on a beautiful no wake lake with great fishing. This vacation rental is directly in the center of Michigans golf mecca and is conveniently located next to hundreds of miles of snowmobile trails. Don't forget the Morals in the spring, and the Colors in the fall!
