Life is Great on Stone Lake!

In our family, vacations are about enjoying life and making wonderful memories- together. Life is too short and quality time to scarce to waste on ordinary experiences. So when we are looking for vacation destinations and four season fun, we say go big or stay home.

Is your family like minded? If so, then please consider making memories on our 1.5 acres of lush, terraced, manicured lawn, with mature oaks and 300' of beautiful lakefront on tranquil Stone Lake.

You get the best of both worlds all year long with the convenience and luxury of 2500 Sq. ft of comfortable living space (5BR/4Bath) and the lake views, open space and large trees worthy of a state park. This home accommodates 12 (Up to 16) guests (More if you want to stick the kids in a tent by the lake shore) and comes complete with DUAL KING MASTER SUITE'S WITH PRIVATE BATHROOMS. One with an authentic jacuzzi two person tub and a private glass sliding walkout to enjoy your coffee while watching the sun come up over the lake. The other with stunning views of the entire property. Regardless of whether it's Spring, Summer, Winter, or Fall, there's something for everyone.

Got Sun?

This fully furnished lake front home is situated with a football field's worth (yes it's true) of lake front, open space and shade trees and ample onsite parking. This property is perfect for a romantic getaway or a large family gathering, with cookouts, campfires and even tent camping by the shore, all while overlooking all sports Stone Lake. Skip stones off the dock and admire the beautiful and historic Cass County Courthouse in the distance across the lake. It's our little piece of heaven.

Got Rain?

Want to stay in? Life is still Great on Stone Lake! The fully furnished lower level recreation room complete with a bar, LCD TV, electronic dart board, and........Brunswick pool table (that converts easily to a competition ping pong table) whew!! Oh, it also offers 12' sliding glass doors for walk out access to the truly HUGE concrete patio with over 750 sq ft of grilling (on our COMMERCIAL GRADE GAS GRILL) and entertainment area (Yes, we go crazy big!)

Got Kids?

Awesome! We do too (Eight - yes really) Kids will go wild (and be out of your hair if need be) swimming, playing on the swing set, exploring the lake shore, pitching a tent by the shore or just playing games in the large yard (did we mention it's like a football field?) Are you worried that the kids will whine if it rains because there's no X-Box? (Don't worry we got you covered there too with an X-Box 360, but bring your own games.)

Got Snow?

Book in the winter and ice fish in the annual Stone Lake ice fishing tournament. Got kids or are young at heart, sled down one of our 250' hills or hop over to Swiss Valley Resort 20 minutes (13.77 miles) away to get your ski or snow board on!

Got a Huge Family (Like Us)?

We've got good new for you! We own another property right next door!

Our adjacent Stone Lake Family Cottage (HA-VRBO 994851) is a cedar sided beauty that sleeps 8-10. Its spacious deck offers the best views of the lake while having breakfast or grilling with the family. Its sandy beach is a stones throw away and fenced in yard makes it safe for both children and pets.

If the dates are available, rent both properties to host 25-30 guests - Extra fees may apply). Each with stunning views of the entire property. Regardless of whether it's Spring, Summer, Winter, or Fall, there's something for everyone.

Got Boating Needs?

Great!, We also have an onsite boating package rental available (additional cost, subject to availability) that typically includes a row boat, canoe, AND Pontoon, see rate section for pricing. Please bring your own water toys, etc., there's plenty to do.

Got a Request?

Looking for anything else? Let us know and we'll see what we can do, but please first call to reserve your week of memories you won't forget.

We hope you will come stay with us and experience why 'Life is Great on Stone Lake!'

With much Love and Fun,

Kevin & Kyra Weber

About Property Manager - At Home Realty Grp

Growing up in Michigan and Ohio respectively, we have always loved the outdoors and healthy lifesyle that it brings. Life is Great is one of our family motto's (another is no Whining!) and we hope you enjoy our lake home as much as our 7 kids and two grandkids do.

Property Manager - At Home Realty Grp purchased this house in 2005

Why Property Manager - At Home Realty Grp chose Cassopolis

Plain and simple, we bought this property for our family to enjoy all year around. Not just the views which are truly beautiful and the serenity they bring, but also the large lush lawn and mature trees. Being close to Diamond Lake, Notre Dame, Swiss Valley Ski Resort, Chicago and Detroit doesn't hurt either. :-)

What makes this house unique

With over 1.5 acres of lawn and 300' of open access lake front, we truly feel we have the best of both worlds, a great house, a large open yard for games and entertainment with mature oak trees, deer who visit and easy access to beautiful Stone Lake. Come winter, we can sled down one of our 250' hills, ice fish or hop over to Swiss Valley 25 minutes away to get our ski or snow board on.

Location and lake were great!

  • 3 of 5

I was greatly disappointed to drive up and find a For Sale sign in the front yard. Guests should be notified. Fortunately, there were no showings during our stay. The bathrooms are in need of work. All 4 had an issue of some sort and only one shower was really usable. A second one was duct taped due to cracking on the base if the shower. I attempted to contact the owner about the kitchen window leaking when it was raining and received no response. Any subsequent attempts at contacting the owner have been unanswered. We are still waiting to hear about our refundable security deposit. The home was left in good condition. The maintenance man was very friendly and attentive.

Not worth the money we paid.

  • 3 of 5

Cassopilis is a quaint, little town near Indiana. Stone lake is a tiny little lake right next to a beautiful large lake. When we arrived, we were appalled by how dirty the thin and worn mattresses were. We ended up buying air mattresses. When we contacted the caretaker, he did his best to make it right. For that we are grateful. My family can always make the best of every situation but it was a big disappointment to not have known about the lake and the condition of the beds. The grounds were spacious but none of the reviews mentioned the steep hill you have to go down just to get to the lake. Uphill was a real challenge. My 81 year old mother only was able to go down a couple of times. I wish I would have known. This place has potential. It is for sale, hopefully the next owner can fix it up. VRBO ought to consider reviewing this place because it was not worth the money we paid.☹

Relaxing Setting

  • 4 of 5

It was a nice large home for our 10 family members. We enjoyed the closeness of the lake even though it was a bit of a steep hill to walk to get there and back.

Great House for Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house was great for our family vacation. The 5 bedrooms were spacious and freezing cold (in a good way). The game room downstairs is ideal for when the kids need to make noise away from the adults. The kitchen is very well stocked with cooking utensils and such. The outdoor patio and seating is amazing for large groups. We actually booked this house AND the house next door due to the size of our family, which worked out great. The only downside to this house is the access to the lake. There is a large hill, but we added rental of a gator to get some of the mobility challenged people down there, which worked out great. But the bad side is that you can't see the beach from the patio, so you need kiddy supervision down there. However if there aren't any kids, it's nice to be down there quiet while fishing when everyone else is up on patio or just wading in the water. Kids enjoyed swimming and the boats and kayaks and jumping off the dock. The pontoon was a nice addition although the lake is rather small. Overall, it was what our family needed. Space, A/C, beach & boats. :)

Grant Family Lake Property

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at this lake house with 5 adults and 6 kids. The weather wasn't very cooperative, but the game room with the ping pong/pool table was great for the the kids. We rented the boats and it was a nice addition to the rental. My only criticism was that the hill down to the lake was a bit steep and the grill was dirty and difficult to lite. We would definitely come again. Thank you.
