Located between Gun Lake and Hastings this 23 year old home has 2400 sq. ft., with 300 feet of frontage on Head Lake, a sandy, all-sports lake in Barry County. It is only 45 min. from downtown
Grand Rapids/ Kalamazoo and 15 min. from Hastings.
This house is cozy for one family but can easily handle a
large group. It sleeps 14 very comfortably. The
house is beautifully decorated, with a finished walk-out basement,
and has French doors to the lake on 3 levels, decks on 2 of them,
and a front porch with popiezon chairs.
The lakefront offers you privacy for sunbathing with a sandy
beach for kids to play on. The lake gets deep gradually. We enjoy a
southern exposure allowing you the opportunity to sunbathe on the
dock, the beach, or the deck.
Come and enjoy the quiet and serenity this place has to
offer. It's so quiet it will make you feel like you have your own
private lake; and with 300' of frontage, no roads anywhere in sight,
a long driveway, and, more parking space then you'll need, this
place is truly unique among lakefront properties. Much of the
lake shore is still natural; lined with trees and not houses. Wake
up to deer and go to sleep listening to the frogs and
Experience all the comforts of a home away from home from
the moment you arrive and drive right into the attached 2-stall
garage to unload. Relax in the lounge chairs on the 30' deck with a
tall iced tea. As you soak up the view, you'll take those first
deep breaths of relaxation and feel the responsibilities and cares
Absolutely wonderful stay for our family of 13 at this lovely home. The owners were available for any and all requests and most accommodating. No matter what we asked for it was provided. Fantastic space, and a great lake for swimming, boating and fishing. We had a really great time and look forward to coming back again soon.
We stayed here 3 summers for our family reunion involving 3 families. It was great, and there is a lot to do. However, you have to bring your own linens, and have the house cleaned up by 10 AM Saturday morning. That is hard to do with 16 people who have barely breakfasted and packed up. The owners expected the home to be very clean but left a substandard vacuum cleaner and dishwasher. The owner showed up at very unexpected times and we felt watched. One morning he was on the deck at 6 AM and scared my 5 year-old niece. In the 3 years we stayed there we had to re-glue the spindles on the kitchen chairs each summer because they would fall off when you moved them. We were afraid we would be charged with damage and had to repair things that fell apart with gentle use.
We visited the lakehouse last year for the first time and stayed a week - then it was the BEST vacation EVER. This year we're equally blessed by the time we spent there. It's so quiet and peaceful and relaxing - what a rest for the weary! Not to mention we had so much fun in the hot tub and fishing in the lake (we caught a BUNCH!). We also enjoyed walks on the trails, paddle-boating, playing pool and just kinda hangin' out with no agenda. There were 8 of us there and never once tripped over eachother - and that's not easy for our family to do just anywhere!
What a beautiful home and lovely grounds!
Absolutely, incredibly, without a doubt the NICEST, CLEANEST, PRETTIEST, SERENEST, MOST RELAXING vacation getaway we have EVER had in 32 years of marriage!
Hiking, boating, fishing were all incredible on this property... and the best part of it all - IT WAS SO QUIET AND PEACEFUL! Like here we are, on this private all-sport lake in the middle of wooded and rolling hillside country (NOT EVEN 10 MINUTES away from another lake that is overrun) and for a WHOLE WEEK I only saw 2 or 3 other boats... we couldn't believe it! Even on the weekend it was peaceful enough to fish anywhere on the lake without a disturbance.
And the fishing was FANTASTIC!!! We cooked our Small Mouth Bass over our fire and ate until we thought we'd explode... mmmmm best tasting fish, must be due to it being a spring-fed lake.
The house and property... all I can say is the only reason we left is because our week was up - WE'D ALL STAY THERE FOREVER!!!!!! What a beautiful home, furnished elegantly, tastefully, yet simple enough that anyone would feel comfortable there. The kitchen was so awesome my wife nearly cried to leave it, the game room(s) were so much fun my kids can't wait to come back, the rooms were large and very comfortable (nicer than home) and again... the fishing was great - I nearly cried having to leave!
Thank you Bob, Mary, Cassie & James for making our family vacation a memory we will cherish FOREVER! We'll be back!
This lake house was perfect! Plenty of room, impeccably kept, plenty to do (rain or shine). The hosts were so accommodating and we plan to make this our annual Labor Day weekend getaway for as long as the owners are sharing.
