Our family has owned this property since 1992. It started as a ranch, but we completely renovated the house around 2000 adding a second floor. The property was purchased so that we could spend time together as a family, and we enjoy getting together there and having extended family for cookouts in the summer.
Joan Smith / Beth Griesbaum purchased this cottage in 1992
Our father grew up going to his grandparents lake house in Sister Lakes and always wanted to have his own lake property to spend time with family.
Much thought went into selecting this property. Location was key. We wanted the shore to be accessible without having to use stairs to get to the lake. We installed a circular patio with fire pit near the lake early on, and enjoy spending time around the fire in the evenings.
The water is shallow and clear, and the lake has a sandy bottom on this side of the lake. It's great for kids to be able to play in. The sunsets are spectacular.
This place is perfect for a large family, The pictures do not do it justice, the rooms were beautifully decorated and roomy. The kitchen was well equipped, it even has 2 refrigerators. The best part is the shady front with a nice firepit (which we used every night), and the sandy swim area for small children was a huge plus. We rented a pontoon from Midway Marina to add to our enjoyment of fishing and tubing. Joann is a wonderful hostess providing us with maps and info on the area. Went to the wineries (Lemon Creek, Round Barn) and into St. Joe's for the day..the kids loved the splash pad, carousel, and silver beach. The neighbors are extremely friendly and fun to talk to. I would highly recommend this house to anyone, it worked great for my children and grandchildren, but it would be a wonderful place to rent with a bunch of adults.
Magician Lake is a 500 acre springfed sport lake, one of several in the Sister Lakes area near Dowagiac. We are located on the East shore for wonderful sunsets and a shallow sandy beach.
The area is noted for it's fruit growing and depending on the seasons there are fresh fruit and vegetable markets. In keeping with the rich fruit growing tradition, there are also many local wineries to explore.
Dowagiac is near by (10 miles) with quaint shops, old fashioned ice cream parlor and several restaurants. Just 3 miles away is an old fashioned drive-in theatre. We are 22 miles from the the new Jack Nicholas designed Harbor Shores golf club (Benton Harbor) home of the 2014 Senior PGA Championship. There are also several golf courses nearby. Saint Joseph is also 22 miles from the lake house and boasts the highly rated Silver Beach county park, antique stores, boutiques, ice cream shoppes and children's museum. The new Four Winds Hartford Casino is 15 miles away.
A new microbrewery is scheduled to open in the summer of 2016. More information is available here: http://www.sisterlakesbrewing.com/
There are two marinas/boat shops near by for boat rentals.
