About The Owner

Just purchased as our vacation ( retirement home). Will be renting it out for the next several years until we can quit our day jobs and relax on the lake. I have been renting lakefront homes all over northern Michigan for the past 15 years and we have stayed on many nice lakes, as Michigan has plenty. We chose this location for it's quiet peaceful away from it all atmosphere yet only a couple of hours from Muskegon, Lansing, Grand Rapids and Saginaw.

The Owner purchased this house in 2013

Why The Owner chose Northern Michigan

We are pet friendly but expect that you clean up after your pets as soon as possible. There is plenty of parking space to accommodate cars and trailers.

What makes this house unique

Ask about availability of a pontoon boat and or fishing boat, both have 40 HP motors.

Wonderful Lake House

  • 5 of 5

My wife, myself and our chocolate lab had a wonderful week on the lake. The sandy shallow lake is perfect for pets and children. We love to fish and had a blast, walleye, smallmouth and largemouth bass, pike, gills and crappie, you cant beat fresh fish for dinner.

This is not a cottage, this is a house with plenty of room for a large family. The kitchen is very well stocked, some of the Teflon pans are warn but that is expected.

It was our first time in the area and we enjoyed local fare..there's plenty of pizza places and good food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Nothing fancy but enjoyable while at the lake. We enjoyed "The Family Diner" on more than one occasion.

The owner is wonderful and very responsive.

We recommend this for a wonderful vacation spot.

Nice House on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here between Christmas and New Years. I was pleasantly surprised at how much room was in the house. It was larger than the pictures indicated. We had six adults, a 3-year-old and two dogs and we always had plenty of room to sit and move about. The beds were comfortable and there was enough seating for all of us to be in the front room together. The granddaughter enjoyed playing on the swing set in the backyard.

The owners were prompt in responding to my many questions and a pleasure to work with.

It is hard to judge the surrounding area as it was pretty much buttoned up for the winter, but I bet during the summer this would be an ideal place to vacation;, especially since the water looked like it was shallow at the beach edge and then got gradually deeper. There was even about two to three feet of a sand "beach" for little ones to play in before the water started.

My family of ten had a great christmas celebration at this lake house.

  • 5 of 5

My family wanted a getaway that was private, on a lake with lots of room .... this lake house was PERFECT! It was much larger than the pictures and we found it extremely clean and well kept. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed such as cookware and spices. The bedrooms were good size and we found the beds to be comfortable and loved the fact that the linens were provided. I highly recommend this Lake House and will visit again.

First family vacation in over 15 years and it was great. Plenty of room for all 11 of us. Sandy bottom and easy water entry. Kids has fun running into the water with out difficulty. Only thing I would change would be more comfortable beds.
