Lake City house description

FOR SMALLER GROUPS OF 15 or LESS, PLEASE CHECK OUT OUR OTHER PLACE ON LAKE MISSAUKEE http://6bedroomcottage.shutterfly.com/ . (Copy and Paste address to browser). The summer of 2014 is completely booked for both places, however, there are many openings in the off-season.

Come relax with extended family and friends in our large 8 bedroom home on Lake Missaukee. This home offers lots of space (5000sq. ft. on 3/4 of an acre) to roam inside and out. Set back from the road, this home is hidden by a small woods and overlooks the lake with a beautiful sandy beach. The lake is shallow with a sandy bottom, offering even the little ones lots of fun in the water and on the sand. A boat launch nearby makes 'putting in' easy for all your water sports. To finish out the day on the water, make sure you relax with a fire on the beach. Then rest up on a comfortable mattress for the next day's activities.

The small town of Lake City is just minutes away with its shopping, icecream and a park. Groceries can easily be found at a great supermarket right in town to stock up the 2 refrigerators of the home. Traverse City is only 45 minutes away with its wineries and Cadillac is 15 minutes away with more shops.

Fall is a beautiful time to visit this area. Contact us for your Fall Get-Away to see the beauty of the colors in Northern Michigan.

Consider our 8 Bedroom Retreat on Lake Missaukee for all your winter activities, too. The trailhead for the Miss-Kal Snowmobile Trails is just on the north side of the lake. Skiing and sledding facilities - Caberfae Peaks and Missaukee Mountain - are very near to the Lake City/Cadillac area.

We look forward to you contacting us about your reservation. When you inquire please have two choices for your vacation dates, as the first choice can become unavailable quite quickly. We do keep the 'availability calendar' up to date, but can quickly change in a moment. Hope to hear from you soon.

We do not rent to students or singles under 25 years.

                We have made it a tradition to go "Up North" for New Years with our families! This beautiful property was exactly as described and did serve as a family retreat for us. The kids enjoyed bundling up and playing in the snow. And the walk to the road and back was perfect for a bit of exercise in the winter air. The men were able to enjoy watching the Spartans win the Rose Bowl as well! We would definitely return to this home again and would love to see it in the summer months!

                We just returned from a great weekend at this vacation home. I agree with an earlier review that the pictures don't capture how spacious the home is. We had a large group with lots of small children and never felt crowded. The kitchen was well stocked and the home had everything we needed. My nephew was on call for work and the internet was very reliable making it able for him to stay the weekend. There were lots of kids toys for both indoor and out and the air hockey was an added bonus. We had a great time down at the beach. The kids swam out to the floating dock and enjoyed the slide and diving board. We cooked over an open fire which was very handy having a firepit by the house as well as at the beach. Owners were great to work with. Very responsive to calls and emails and made sure things were taken care of. Overall a great experience for our group. We will be back again.

                My rather large family and I stayed here just this last weekend of May. We were simply amazed by how much space was in the living/dining room. The beach was also nice and outside areas were good to get the kids outside. The lake offered me and my brothers ample opportunity to fish the lake. I caught 10 large mouth bass and 1 huge Northern Pike while my younger brother caught around 15 bass plus 1 that had to have weighed 3 lbs. The only issue we had was with the pontoon which had a minor fuel leak; which I understand has been completely taken care of. Really, a very nice house with plenty of beds and two fridges and a game room for when there are rainy days. I hope to bring my family back to Lake City next year.

                This place was spectacular! The massage chairs were fantastic, the dining/kitchen/living area were nice and open and the kids had a great time running around. Wi-fi and Directv made staying connected and watching MSU football very easy. The kitchen was well-furnished with all of our cooking needs met. 2 refigerators and a washer and dryer was perfect! Outside was very peaceful, and the neighbors to the west of the house were so friendly, they shared some fresh-caught salmon with us! The steps to the beach (there are 40 of them), made for a challenge when carrying all of things back up at the end of the week. But, the beach itself is very sandy with a great firepit. The kids loved the diving dock with the slide! I only wish renting a watercraft was a bit less of an expense, but totally understand that maintaining them is an expense to the owner. All in all, it was a great vacation made even better by our wonderful accomodations. We'll see you next year!

                We had 15 women come up to this lovely home for a 3 day retreat. It was perfect. The house was lovely and so very welcoming. The dining room/living room combination made plenty of space. It was lovely out and all of us enjoyed sitting around the fire in the evening and the sun in the day. The beds were very comfortable. The owners went out of their way to make sure that all of our questions were answered and everything prepared for us. It was great.

                What a great time our group of 17 had at Lake Missaukee...in the winter! We arrived to a beautiful, frozen lake, on which our kids took great pleasure in exploring. We had hoped to snowmobile during our stay, but alas, there wasn't enough snow. The owner had provided us with the name of a company that rented snowmobiles as there are more than 200 miles of trails nearby! Instead, we spent a few hours each day at a nearby sledding hill, and the rest of our time was spent playing games, keeping toasty by the indoor fire, and just enjoying each other's company. The older kids in our group loved hanging in the gameroom with the massage chairs, while the younger kids found plenty do to without the aid of electronic devices. The lack of snow did not detract from a fantastic getaway at all! The home is lovely with plenty of space for multiple families, including two huge tables in the dining area allowing us to sit down together as a group. We'd love to go back and would highly recommend it to other families seeking a winter getaway!
