Canadian Lakes house description

Rest and play in our spacious 1800sf cottage right on all-sports Main Canadian Lake in the beautiful Canadian Lakes resort area. This spacious split level comes loaded with cottage charm inside and out and has just undergone a complete update by the new owners...You will be welcomed by new denim-blue siding with white trim and fresh cottage-chic furniture on the inside in shades of blueberry, apple, white and khaki. Even the windows and doors have been replaced! If you would like to walk through the cottage room by room, CLICK ON THE LINK TO OUR COTTAGE BLOG (under the rate info. below)...

UPSTAIRS - The fully equipped kitchen, which features plenty of cheerful white beadboard cabinetry, includes a gas range, microwave, dishwasher, super-size side-by-side fridge, a walk-in pantry and a handy breakfast bar with stools. It is open to the bright dining room, which shares a wall of sliders with the living room. The gas fireplace and stunning lake views can be viewed from all three areas. The upper deck just outside is very large, with a big gas grill for your use, a large rectangular glass-top table seating eight, and a smaller table for extra guests or food prep. A large main floor laundry leads from the spacious master bedroom (king bed) into the two-room Jack-n-Jill bathroom and back onto the hall. The home was completely redecorated in 2010 with spunky vintage furniture, fresh linens and all but one new mattress; everything is kept sparkling clean by family caretakers. Basic cable TV and cable internet are provided. The white-panelled walls give the entire home a fresh and airy cottage feeling.

DOWNSTAIRS - The cheerful guest bedroom (queen bed) and nautical 'bunkroom' (sleeping 4) share another full bathroom. A huge recreation area (classic This End Up pullout sofas / games / books/ entertainment center) spans the entire basement lakeside, where two sliders open onto a cement patio just steps from the lake. All bedrooms feature large closets and a vintage chest or dresser for storage...A baby crib and highchair are available on the premises also.

OUTSIDE - Large oak trees frame the street-side of the home, dappling the bedrooms with shade. A green lawn slopes gradually around the house to a flat grassy area between the house and lake. There's additional room to play thanks to the community greenspace lot next door. We have 60 ft of private, sandy-bottomed frontage; a dock, fire pit, and pedal boat; and a wonderful sandy mini-beach with no seawall (perfect for little ones!). We enjoy views of both the sunrise and the sunset. An attached garage offers plenty of storage. We have a ski boat for you to rent as well!

RESORT AMENITIES - Canadian Lakes is the largest recreation/resort/residential property in Michigan featuring the best in lakeside living and golf. Enjoy over 735 acres of lakes and ponds (340 of which are connected all-sports lakes); 2000 acres of dedicated green space; three members-only (and you, as our guest!) golf courses as well as the world-class Tullymore and St. Ives courses! Members and their guests also enjoy an airstrip, a campground, 3 children's playgrounds, 8 tennis courts, 2 basketball courts, 1 baseball diamond, shuffleboard, horseshoes, indoor and outdoor pools, a fitness center, multiple parks and 4 huge sandy beaches...our community even boasts a castle! We are a 2 minute walk from the largest beach (we have a volleyball net), and about 5 from the nearest tennis courts! All 5 golf courses are within minutes! This is a beautiful area for bikes and strollers, so bring yours along! Day passes are available for purchase at the fitness center and pools (just $3 for unlimited 1-day access to all three). Guest rates will apply at the CLPOC golf courses. You will be provided with a guest pass and a driving pass to the resort.

THE LAKES - Our home is on the 240-acre all-sports Main Canadian Lake, which connects to the 100-acre all-sports West Canadian, as well as two other small no-wake lakes which beg exploration - you'll enjoy a good workout in the pedal boat! Hundreds of cottages surround the main lakes, but quiet fishing spots abound. Lakes are members-only which means that only boats owned by property owners may be on the lake - you can rent ours! We have a mint condition 1994 17' open-bow Starcraft Fish'n'Ski with a 90hp Mariner outboard, complete with fishing chair and trolling motor...perfect for fishing, skiing, and tubing all day (see blog for more info). It's also perfect for a slow drive up the channel to get ice cream or groceries, or perhaps enjoy dinner at the Grill...Pontoon rentals are also available on the lakes from Lakeside Motor Sports in Mecosta. Fishing is a favorite pastime on the lakes - they are well-stocked but catch-n-release only. You can catch bass right off the dock and seawall!

NEARBY AMENITIES - You'll lack nothing thanks to the Country Corner five minutes away - there you will find a gas station, a convenience store, a full-size grocery store, a pizza parlor, a family restaurant, a fishing license office, the post office, several banks, two health centers, a beauty parlor, a fudge shop, a flower shop, a video store, and our favorite haunt, Ace Hardware (marshmallows, bait...). The Royal, St. Ives and Tullymore golf courses also have their own restaurants, and mini-golf (great ice cream!) and riding lessons are just a few minutes further.

Canadian Lakes is the perfect location to vacation. We love our new lake house and enjoyed turning it into a bright and cheery guest home for all to enjoy. We look forward to cherishing many memories here with our own family and friends, and are thankful for quality renters who make this dream possible for us. We hope that you will enjoy our cottage as much as we already do, and that you will return to it each summer.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: We are a middle-aged (I can't believe I just wrote that!) married couple with young children. Because most of our family and many of our friends live in Michigan, we vacation here every summer. We have finally found the perfect rental cottage to call our own, and hope that your family will enjoy it as much as ours does! Our cottage is lovingly maintained by my family and by a local property manager - we remain very active in the cottage on a daily basis, and appreciate your feedback.

                      Why the Owner Chose Canadian Lakes:
                      Ever since our realtor brother introduced us to Canadian Lakes, we dreamed of buying a cottage here. The lakes are beautiful, surrounded by quaint smaller cottages and larger newer ones; the area is very well maintained. The combination of all-sports and quiet lakes is fantastic - plenty of room to boat, ski, fish, canoe...whatever you're in the mood for. But what really sold us on the area was the amenities it offers to us as owners and you as our guests - world class golf, tennis, basketball, baseball, shuffleboard, horseshoes, parks with playgrounds, huge sandy beaches, large public green spaces, indoor and outdoor pools, a workout center...there's no end of things to do! That and the fact that gas, groceries, ice cream and mini-golf are less than five minutes away makes Canadian Lakes just about perfect. It's a wonderful, relaxing place for people of all ages!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The best feature of the house is its close proximity to the water. The sound of the waves lapping on the seawall is so soothing, and watching the boats and the fish while eating lunch on the deck definitely puts us in vacation mode. We also love the fact that we can see the kids in the water at all times, and that we have our own little beach to build sandcastles in. The large lawn and the open public greenspace next door offer lots of room for kids to run around, and contribute to a feeling of spaciousness - we don't feel cramped by neighbors! We love the all-white panelled walls and the wall to wall sliders upstairs and down - the house is always bright and airy inside, with fantastic water views. We enjoy the fact that the kids can rule the recroom while the adults relax upstairs with the fire or a good book. And as a mom I am so thankful for the main floor laundry and the big garage to stash all the water toys and life jackets.
