Paquette’s Lakehouse is a picturesque 600 square foot cottage located on Briggs Lake. Relax and take in the view on your own private deck overlooking the 75 acre lake with 120 feet of lake frontage.
Looking for the perfect place to really kick back and relax?
Well then… picture yourself on a nice private lake; lounging on a wooden deck, perched high above it all as you soak in the beauty. Thirsty..? A well-stocked party store is just around the corner with a huge selection of beer, wine & spirits. They also offer a hot food deli during the day and early evening. But let’s say you’re hungry for something more. While there are certainly many fine dining establishments and drive-thru restaurants within only 3 miles, you may prefer to drive only one mile to the nearby grocery store. There, you can purchase a few thick juicy steaks or whatever your heart desires to toss on the grill. If you like to float or splash around in the water… you’ll have your very own paddle boat (provided at no additional cost).
Briggs Lake is a no gasoline motor lake. Only electric trolling motors are permitted and what does this mean to you? Peace and tranquility...
Paquette’s Lakehouse is a great destination for bass fishermen. Anglers can fish right off the dock or enjoy a quarter-mile hike to Island Lake recreation area and fish Island Lake. Island lake recreation area is a 4000-acre park that offers an “up north” experience without leaving southeast Michigan.
Paquette’s Lakehouse has many things to offer year round. Enjoy the eye-popping color changes that take place in the fall. Try your hand at cross-country skiing on the lake during the winter and or, ride on nearby mountain bike trails all year. You’ll be conveniently close to golf courses, restaurants, shopping and antiquing. During your stay, you may discover many events to attend; including summer concerts, sidewalk sales, holiday parades, farmers markets, art fairs and Brighton’s Smokin’ Jazz & Barbecue Blues Festival. That’s right folks, at Paquette’s Lakehouse you’ll be able to relax and enjoy everything we’ve just described including the fishing, swimming, hiking, boating and paddle boarding all summer long!
We look forward to sharing our slice of paradise with you!
