About David Balconi

I retired 2016 and escaped winter to Peru. While I was there I met Kily at a resort in the North. Since then I have moved to Peru and have been traveling South America and other locations with her. We hope to move to the U.S. as soon as we get the VISA approved..... Uggg

David Balconi purchased this house in 2006

Why David Balconi chose Michigamme

I was looking for a location where my family could live on a lake and be close enough for school. We also had plans to turn the house into a bed and breakfast when the kids went to college. Life never goes as planned and the kids are almost done with college and I live in Peru, the application for a B&B wasn't approved by the township. LOL

What makes this house unique

The VIEW of the lake here is beautiful. Even though we are in Michigamme the house faces the lake and we have no neighbors that we can see from the house. It is very private yet it is next to the park. The boat traffic is low because it is a bay, so it is great for playing in the water and hanging out.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation at David's beautiful lake home. With the six bedrooms there was room for everyone. We really enjoyed the lake with the slide and water trampoline. The grandkids had lots of fun with all of it. Although the water had a darker color to it, it was very clear and clean and great for swimming and watersports. Van Riper State Park is just a boat ride across the lake and has a nice sandy beach for the kids. We spent a lot of time in the large backyard that faces the lake, playing kubb, ladder ball, and cornhole. The yard is really pretty with lots of flowers everywhere. We also enjoyed the hot tub on the cooler afternoons/evenings. Although most windows have no curtains, it provided for beautiful views and the most amazing sunrises as we woke up in the morning! We were lucky to be there over the July Fourth holiday and had prime viewing for the fireworks since the park is right next door. (Great playground for the younger ones too, just a very short walk away.) The Michigamme community parade was also a fun experience. When we arrived, the home was so well decorated for the Fourth of July with flags, buntings, and lots of other small touches that we really appreciated. David was very responsive throughout the whole process, even emailing us after we arrived to make sure we had everything we needed. Overall, a great experience!

Beautiful Home

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time on the Michigamme Lake and this house was perfect for 3 couples with 3 kids. The only complaint I have is that the pots and pans were not clean and the griddle was so clogged with "stuff" that it was unusable. Even with that, we loved it here, the rooms, bathrooms and living areas were awesome. The kids loved the video games, as well as the adults! It was a perfect spot for some R&R. We had a great time and would rent it again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review!!! We love the our executive kitchen and hope you found everything you needed including tons of spices, coffee makers, mixers, slow cookers, two large refrigerators, toaster oven, oven, knives, bowls, the pantry with food and all kinds of things not usually found at a rental. I'm sorry you found the pans and grill unsatisfactory. Many smiles and great vacations :)

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The home was perfect for our group of 5 couples for our annual snowmobile trip! The weather didn't exactly cooperate - no worries as we had plenty to entertain us with the sauna, hot tub, pool table, etc. Plus plenty of space to spread out. The only thing that could have made it better would be queen size beds in all rooms instead of full.

Nice home, was not renter ready

  • 3 of 5

We rented this home over the Christmas holiday so we could spend time with our extended family. It is a nice, spacious home which at first glance seemed perfect. Unfortunately many of the dishes, silverware, pans and cooking utensils were put away dirty. So we had to empty the cabinets and wash those things right away. The sauna that the guys were looking forward to using was so dirty/moldy that they opted out. The gas fireplaces did not work and the wicker love seat was on its last leg. The freezer leaked water and only made ice once in awhile. There were some other minor repairs that needed to be done, but they did not bother us. It is a pretty, spacious home with many areas to be together as well as find a spot to get away. Hopefully the home will get some TLC before the next renters come in.
