About Jeffery Dupuis

My family & I have many fond memories of wonderful summers spent on Budd Lake. The lake offers great fishing, swimming, a nice beach and of course, a beautiful view. We recently purchased this cottage on the lake, and completely remodeled the whole thing. We've added a whole new second floor with additional bedrooms, updated bathrooms, kitchen & laundry area and walk out basement.

Jeffery Dupuis purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Jeffery Dupuis chose Harrison

Budd Lake is 175 acres of fishing skiing boating and pontooning and kayaking. This cottage location is one of the best areas on the lake. Out front has some of the best sandy bottom in the whole lake. It is located on the east side of the lake that gives you great sunsets in the summer. Plus a nice summer breeze to cool you down after a long hot day on the lake.

What makes this cottage unique

This cottage has all of the comforts of home. Harrison is located within three hours of Detroit. There are 20 lakes within 20 minutes and a Casino 30 minutes away. There are also 7 golf courses within 25 minutes. Budd Lake offers many activities, boating, great fishing, kayaking and swimming. and centrally located in the middle of Michigan. For those that wish to bike, The Pere Marquette Rail Trail rail trail is located 15 minute drive to the south that gives you beautiful views of Michigan and miles of trails. For those that wish to canoe. The muskegon river is just 10 minutes to the west for those of you that want to canoe. Or just relax at the cottage and sit on the deck and enjoy great sunsets or listen to the loons on the lake.

Very nice place and very clean!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great. Quiet neighborhood and gorgeous view of the lake. Upon our arrival Jeff even texted me to make sure everything was ok with the house. I had to call him because I couldn't get the door to lock off the deck. He explained to me how to lock it and was very friendly about it. Jeff was also very informative about things to do in the area as we were there for the jeep creep in Gladwin. The house is very well maintained and very clean, which we appreciated. There was everything we needed to cook as far as pots and pans and dishes. There were lots of of towels which is sometimes not the case with rentals. We were only there for two nights, but there was enough dishwasher soap, hand soap and toilet paper for the weekend which is also not the case in many rentals we have stayed in. There was an awesome fire pit right near the lake and we were disappointed that we couldn't enjoy because of the weather. We had six adults and it was very roomy for all of us and it could have accommodated another 2-4 very comfortably. We loved the place and hope to return again next year! The owner is great to work with and is very concerned about your needs and satisfaction. You won't be dissatisfied in any way with this house. I have rented many houses in the past and this one definitely one of the best.

Great Lake House

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the lake house overall. From the pictures, we were expecting a similar amount of sand for the beach. Felt like only a quarter of the sand was there compared to the pictures. It was a little disappointing with little boys but they still managed to have a great time.

Great Family Vacatin

  • 5 of 5

For the third year in a row we spent a great weekend at the Budd Lake Cabin. Although the week was a little cooler than previous years will still enjoyed swimming, fishing and hanging out around the campfire. This year our youngest daughter learned to water ski, which she enjoyed immensely. We couldn't ask for a better place to spend our family vacation. Great location, clean house and a great owner, who is always very helpful. We will be coming back again next year.
