Natural light pours over the open great room through a towering wall of windows that accentuate the home’s wood-paneled cathedral ceilings. Enjoy the views from the plush furnishings that fill the space, or turn on the flat-screen cable TV with XFINITY On Demand to catch up on your shows. A wood-burning fireplace surrounded by stunning stonework finishes off the space.

Adjacent to the living area lies the dining area, where you can bring the whole family together around a charming wood table for a gourmet meal.

Prepare tonight’s menu options in the fully equipped kitchen, which comes complete with everything you’ll need to cook all your favorites. A breakfast bar set for 4 allows you to keep the chef company while they work their magic in the kitchen.

Spend some time in the game room, primed for entertaining afternoons at home. The space is brightly lit with natural light flooding through large windows and includes a cable TV, crafts table and sliding doors to access the deck.

Bask in a cool lake breeze as you step out to your own outdoor oasis. Host a happy hour at the shaded patio table while dinner cooks on the gas grill. This incredible outdoor space also includes a lush yard and a private dock for you to enjoy unrestricted access to the water during your stay.

After a full day on the water, retreat to the bedrooms for some much-needed sleep. The master bedroom comfortably accommodates 4 guests between a king-sized bed and 2 twin beds. Wash up before calling it a night in the full en-suite bathroom, equipped with double sinks, a walk-in shower and soaking tub.


With a 246-acre lake as your backyard, you may never want to step foot off the property! Enjoy fishing, boating and swimming right out the back door, or venture out and explore a number of other nearby attractions.

Four Winds Casino is a popular destination with 400 slot machines, table games and on-site restaurants that are sure to satisfy your hunger cravings!

To learn more about the area’s history, visit the Dowagiac Area History Museum, a 6,000-square-foot exhibit highlighting the history of Dowagiac, Cass County and Sister Lakes.

For those willing to take a drive, head over to South Bend, home to over 50 major attractions, including the Potawatomi Zoo, the Studebaker National Museum and the Morris Performing Arts Center.

Take a trip out to Shipshewana, located in the heart of Northern Indiana’s Amish Country. Here, you’ll find unique baked goods and a wide variety of handmade quilts and crafts. If you’re planning your visit between May and September, be sure to stop by their famous flea market, open on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, with over 900 vendors, selling everything from clothes to antiques.

Had a wonderful time.

  • 4 of 5

Only thing we didn't like was the front yard. I believe there isn't anything you can do about this.

Beautiful property with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of room for our extended family. The great room is fantastic for relaxing in the evening with everyone. The lake is large enough for good skiing and tubing. We were provided with everything we needed so we didn't need to make any little trips to the store. (Linens, bath towels, paper products, spices, etc.) Property is as advertised. Clean and well-maintained. Nice 9-hole golf course nearby for a quick round.

This lake property fit our needs well.

  • 5 of 5

The open floor plan and view of the lake was beautiful. The kitchen was supplied with everything we needed. I might suggest providing some lake "toys" for use along with beach towels.

Great place to entertain grandchildren and friends. We enjoyed the spacious kitchen for all our meals. The kids enjoyed the movie selection and all the stuffed animals. My vacation was everything I expected and more.
