Kickback and relax in this cozy 2620 sq ft home on a secluded private island surrounded by 360 degrees of water. The Oak Island is located on the all-sports Lakeville Lake in Oakland County, 25 minutes away from Rochester Hills and Auburn Hills. This home can accommodate up to 10 people with its 3 bedrooms, a sofa pull-out bed, and 2 full bathrooms.
The island is accessible via a private bridge with space for 3 cars on the mainland. A flight of stairs connects the mainland to the bridge, which leads to the island. The water is deep on the North side and is accompanied by a sturdy dock. If you choose to bring your own boat, a public boat launch is nearby.
Come and play in the waters! A 16’ canoe, a metal row boat, and 5 life jackets and oars are provided. Additional kayaks and row boat rentals is nearby. Enjoy swimming in the clear blue waters until noon then climb on shore for an outdoor BBQ picnic. In the afternoon, hop on your boat and go fishing or simply cruising. Finally, watch the sunset reflect off the lake waters in the evening.
Spend some time with nature and hike or bike the trails at the famous Addison Oaks county park. Go for a hunt for Geocaches—there are plenty in the area! Also, try and spot the American bald eagles that hunt by the lake. Take a night off and visit the Oxford Theater to see what’s playing! When it’s dark, cook up a warm bonfire and watch the stars on a clear night.
Outdoor amenities include a gas grill, 2 large picnic tables, and an extra-large campfire pit. The balcony is great for sunbathing, relaxing, and stargazing on. Trout, Pike, and Largemouth Bass are aplenty on this lake.
Electricity, air conditioning, cable TV, internet WiFi, clean drinking water, hot water shower, and wash/dryer are available on site. The house has 2 TVs, 2 DVD players, and an old-school SNES video game system. The kitchen includes a dishwasher, stove, two large ovens, and a microwave. A large grocery store is just a 15 minute drive away, in Oxford.

We discovered this gem of a property in 2010 and purchased it a year later. After a year of renovations and updates, we sought to share the island experience with others. We have made many precious memories on this island with our friends, and we hope you do too!
Helen purchased this house in 2011
Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you for your hospitality. We had a magnificent time! Everything was just perfect. We sat on the balcony, had a nice breakfast and lunch overlooking the lake, and canoed around in the afternoon. What a setting! It was better than the pictures. Congratulations on your year-long rental. Thank you very much for being there when we arrived on Saturday. That was above and beyond the call of duty.
