About Bryan Gilreath
Our Family is from Lansing and Grand Rapids, MI. We love Michigan. Summer time at the lake has given us our best memories. We are so excited to have our kids and Grandkids spend time with us to provide them with the special memories they will have.
Bryan Gilreath purchased this House in 2013
Why Bryan Gilreath chose Mecosta
We have also been renters for many years. In 2003 we rented on School Section Lake and it became one of our favorite lake's in Michigan. When we realized this year we could finally get our lakefront property this is the ONLY lake we looked at. We love it that much. We finally made the decision to purchase this property because we were struck with the incredible view. We are directly across from this gorgeous colorful island with nothing but mature trees. And beyond that you see the hundreds of acres of county land that is free of cabins and left as nature intended it to be. We also realized quickly this is a home. It is beautiful and fully equipped with everything you need. You only need to bring your clothes, food and drink and plan on having everything else already here. The lake is special. It is well maintained by the Association for weed control, the clearest water around and this incredible 'up north feel'. It has character with the island, peninsulas and amazing mature pines. There is a county park on the lake that has an amazing swimming area and walking trails. However this is still a semi-private lake. The lake only allows boats with motors less than 10hp. We as property owners can have as we please. And this courtesy is extended to you if you choose to bring a boat or Jet Ski.
What makes this House unique
We don't want your experience to stop at the end of the dock. We have kayak's, paddle boat and swim platform. You can also bring your own boat or rent a pontoon if desired.The semi-private lake keeps boat traffic down. The morning, late evening no-wake's and all sports during the day it the perfect balance of peaceful cruising, fishing and the fun of an all-sports lake when you just want to get out and enjoy the water and the sun.

Good fishing good swimming for the kids👍
Had a great time everyone caught fish Place could use professional cleaning windows and such Host was polite and helpful thank you 😊
Wonderful place to stay as we celebrated a wedding this way. Beautiful views.
The location of the house is perfect. We really enjoyed the lake and all the equipment that was available for us to use: kayaks, paddle board, etc. One thing that was disappointing was the cleanliness of the house. The fridge could use additional cleaning and the condiments that were left in there expired over 1 year ago. The microwave was dirty as well. We spent over an hour cleaning the grill (limited grill cleaning supplies). Lastly, some of the towels and pillows should be retired. I slept in the sun room and was in need of a pillow, the ones available in the closets were old and yellow with stains. Other than that, everything else was great. It was very convenient to have bonfire wood all split up and available for use.
Relaxing and convenient!
It was really nice thar they had several kayaks, canoe, paddle boards and paddle boat. Everthing was great!
This was our third time staying here...we obviously love it! Fits all the needs of a large extended family for the weekend! This year we had snow!! Kids were able to sled in the front yard!! Plus they were geeked to be able to "walk on the water"!!
Cozy and Relaxing
We really enjoyed our stay! My husband and I were there for two nights over new years with 2 other couples and it was exactly what we all wanted! The home is very welcoming and had everything we needed! We were able to go ice fishing too which was perfect! The cottage had a fully furnished kitchen so we were able to cook all of our meals there and didn't have to leave at all which was what we wanted, however the owners left lots of very helpful information for the surrounding area if you did want to venture out! One of our favorite spots in the home was the all season porch which we used most often! you get a beautiful view of the lake and with the snow coming down it was beautiful!
We will definitely be back! Maybe even try out the summer! They have a nice beach area out front and they said that they provide Kayaks and a paddle boat for summer activities too which would be so fun!
School Section Lake is a treasure among a beautiful area surround by the Tri-Lakes and Canadian Lakes. This Semi-Private all sports lake has the clearest water of all. World Class Golf Courses The Royal, St. Ives and Tullymore are within minutes. All with award winning restaurants. Located between Mount Pleasant, MI and Big Rapids you are only 20 minutes from anything you would need. Don't forget to check out the Blue Lake Tavern. Sits above Blue Lake with really great view, food and beverage!
