About Owner

We are a family of 5 who have enjoyed this slice of paradise as a second home for 14 years. The original cabin has been built on to doubling its size to accommodate our family. With our children getting older and our schedules and activities make vacation time a little harder to come by, we thought we would share this slice of heaven with others.

Owner purchased this house in 2001

Why Owner chose Michigan

After looking at a hundred locations for second homes, there simply was no other property on the market in Northern Michigan that compared to this property. We are convinced you will agree!

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this home when we began down our two track easement which is essentially our 1/2 mile long driveway. The seclusion factor combined with the lakefront ambience and cabin feel simply cannot be matched.

This property is one in a million! Lake views from nearly every room in the house. Great rustic interior amidst a very modern cabin with a modern kitchen and a large plasma tv in the family room. Great for a crowd - we had 12 - and never felt crowded. The lake was warm and clear and great swimming for the kids and the adults! Great sports lake - we brought our jet skis and the lake is perfect for them. Can't say enough - I have rented many a summer rental and this was the best! Don't pass it up.

Nicer and Bigger than pictures..

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 14 had an awesome time.. The Grandkids didn't want to leave!! It is very private in the woods. My 10 yr old Grandson said on the way in for the first time "Grandpa we are in the deep, deep woods!" The home is very nice with plenty of room, we never felt crowded. (7 adults and 7 kids) The lot was big enough for all kinds of games and adventures. The kitchen is modern with a great island for prep and eating. The mattresses were nice and comfortable. The home was very clean. We saw 10+ deer, raccoons, chipmunks, squirrels etc. The kids found lots of frogs and crawfish. We didn't fish but we saw lots of fish in the lake! The lake was awesome. WARM and clear.. few other boats/people were seen all week long. It dropped off very gradually so it was great for even the little kids.

We look forward to going again... If you are considering this place... DO IT! Its a great choice.

This lake home is paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We are avid vacation property renters and nothing compares to this amazing home and location. The home is very large, plenty of space, amazingly well equipped kitchen, and is the perfect blend of being high quality and clean without it feeling like you can't relax- it is truly homey. Btw, the whole property is wired for music, which we loved. Stepping out the back door is a huge wraparound deck and yard that overlooks a beautiful lake and tons and tons of privacy. There are two porch swings that overlook the sandy, shallow beach- perfect for our kids. Our little dog had the time of her life as well. The owner was wonderful to work with- always available and very laid back- we just could not have picked a better place. (Other perks: full, modern laundry, modern appliances, lots of outdoor seating, fire pit, paddle boat)

Perfect Labor Day Weekend Getaway !!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this home last minute for a weekend getaway with our 3 dogs and adult children. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect, peaceful location !! This very private and beautiful home was immaculate

and had everything you could possibly need !! The lake was absolutely perfect, we spent our days paddle boarding, kayaking and fishing. The treehouse would have been a delight if we had younger children with us ! We loved watching the beautiful sunsets from the swing and had lots of laughs around the bonfire at night. In all it was a perfect weekend ! Thanks so much to the owner, he was a pleasure to work with !! We are already hoping to come back next summer !!

Fun, clean, perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for a family who appreciates modern amenities, but needs that up north, secluded vacation. You'll get excited as soon as you arrive as you drive down the long secluded driveway knowing that you'll get to enjoy your vacation in peace! Birds, deer, and beautiful trees were around to enjoy. The house itself had everything we needed for a comfortable stay including a full washer and dryer, a beautiful large kitchen, 3 full bathrooms (which was perfect for kids around bed time), and clean bedrooms! However, not too much time was spent indoors. My biggest concern before coming here was the lake...I like clean lakes...where I don't have to walk on muck. This lake was perfect. It was clean and shallow so we didn't have to worry about the kids just dropping off into a deep part. The boys enjoyed catching frogs, the girls enjoyed playing in the tree house and the adults were happy that the kids had plenty of things to do! The stereo system was amazing...it ran outside and through the house, and we appreciated the TV and cable for those nights the Tigers were playing! The owner was always available if we had any questions, which was so assuring knowing someone was just a phone call away.

Overall, more than happy about the house, the lake, and the whole experience! We cannot wait to go back!!
