Pinckney cottage description

If you are interested in a Monthly rental between Sept to March 2014/15, please contact me from the web site. We will be taking reservations for Summer 2015 after Feb 15th 2015.

Best of all worlds! Enjoy lake living without the drive. This lakefront home is on quiet Whitewood Lake.

Spend your days discovering the beauty that the Huron River chain has to offer. Throw a line in off your private dock, swim, or play catch with the kids in the spacious yard. Bring a boat (or rent) and explore the river or get a bite to eat. Rain? No problem. Sip hot coffee or a cold lemonade in the enclosed sunroom. Relax over dinner at Zukey Lake Tavern or enjoy drinks on their rooftop Tiki Bar.

In one direction you are 15 minutes from all Ann Arbor has to offer and if you go the other way you are in Brighton. For convenience, downtown Pinckney is just 5 minutes down the road.

We are all booked up for Weekly rentals for the Summer of 2014.

                        Huron River Chain of Lakes View on map

                        The chain is a watershed of the Huron River and covers northern Washtenaw County and southern Livingston County in Michigan. Big Portage, Base Line, Zukey, Strawberry, Whitewood and Gallagher can all be navigated by normal watercraft, however, Ore, Little Portage, and Tamarack are only accessible by small watercraft. The lakes are connected by no-wake canals and are mainly navigated by order of Little Portage, Big Portage, Baseline, Whitewood, Gallagher, Strawberry, and Zukey. Big Portage is 680 acres (2.8 km2) with the deepest point at 84 feet (26 m), making it the largest lake on the chain. Strawberry Lake is the second largest at 257 acres (1.04 km2) with its deepest point at 64 feet

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: Hello, my name is Bryce. I lived on the Huron River Chain of Lakes for 17 years. My wife Kate and I have decided to share our Cottage on Whitewood Lake with people from VRBO this summer. I look forward to helping you enjoy your vacation on one of the best places to have some family fun on and around the water.

                      Why the Owner Chose Pinckney:
                      We decided to purchase this cottage on the chain of lakes because we loved living here and wanted to share that with others. We wanted to have a nice place for family to stay when they visited and decided to rent it out when they weren't using it. We have lived in the area for years and can tell you where to find anything you are looking for while on your vacation.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      We find the lake very relaxing and the surrounding communities fun and friendly. We think the cottage has a real up-north feel, without the long drive. You have a wonderful view of sunsets from the sun porch. You are steps away from swimming in the lake or just sitting on the dock and dangling your feet in. If you fish, you are in luck, there are lots of great coves in the lakes that are teaming with fish.
