Sister Lakes house description
I have been coming to Sister Lakes for over 45 years. The wonderful experiences have always provided a sense of calm and tranquility. When I leave, I am left with the feeling that I can't wait to get back. I have friends that have vacationed with us for a weekend and stayed for weeks. We have countless memories of family and friends learning to swim, drive a boat, pontoon, or Jet Ski, or playing catch in the water diving for a ball off the raft. Cook on an outside gas grill, Weber charcoal kettle or open fire pit. Fish, float around tied to the raft with a cooler, sit in chairs while in the water and get too much sun! There is not a better place to have a party whether it is a Birthday, Graduation or just an impromptu get together it just doesn't get any better than this!
The fall brings out natures unbelievable colors. The Lake quiets down compared to the summer and the water becomes a mirror of the colors on the trees. You can smell burning leaves as homeowners prepare for the next season of winter which usually turns into Winter Wonderland. Stoke a fire in the fireplace or fire pit, clear some snow and skate on the Lake. Shoot a puck on the virgin ice and if you miss it, skate across the Lake to retrieve. Ice fish, sled, or snowmobile. There are hundreds of miles of trails to enjoy. Then before you know it spring jumps out in vibrant green. The vegetables start growing and the roadside markets sell the freshest available anywhere.
Keywords: Our 'Mile 0' Beach house is the perfect place to 'hang loose' for a relaxing week or short but sweet weekend in beautiful Sister Lakes on Big Crooked. Located right at the point on the North side with 89' of frontage. The water is crystal clear with a sandy bottom. Depth at the raft is +/- 6'

Great family get-away!
Great family get-away!
Mile 0 was a fabulous get-away for our family. The house is adorable! It is nicely decorated and very clean. I loved the colors throughout-- I want the owner to decorate my house! All bedding and towels were fresh. The kitchen is updated and very well-equipped. The grounds and landscaping are lovely. It's a small house, but has everything you can ask for. Although there is a sea wall and not a beach, the swimming is fine for kids. From the pier there are three steps down to the water. The bottom is firm and sandy, and the drop-off is gradual. We loved the outdoor sound system. The kids had fun blasting tunes and dancing at the end of the pier. One complaint is that boat traffic is heavy at this part of the lake so there is a lot of boat traffic. However, the kids enjoyed watching the boats. Didn't leave the house much to explore the area. We did drive to Dowagiac about 15 mins away (not much there, but cute) where we had Twistees ice cream. We also hiked at Rudolphi Woods which is about 5 mins from Dowagiac across from the community college. Lovely trails, fierce mosquitos and deer flies. I highly recommend Mile 0!

What a nice place so close to the waters' edge. The house is very clean and complete with all the essentials. We even enjoyed our time under the covered patio during the 3 days of rain. Ken and Leslie have done a wonderful job caring for this rental unit. You won't be disappointed.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our property provides several different ways you can relax and/or entertain. MAKE SURE TO CONTACT ME FOR A LINK TO VIEW A VIRTUAL TOUR OF THE PROPERTY. The adjacent patio connected to the house is sheltered from the rain and sun; this is where you’ll find one of the cooking grills with a ceiling fan to provide a breeze. Toss the bean bags, play catch, or throw a Frisbee on the front lawn in a shaded area under the trees or closer to the water in the sun. Or walk down a few steps and sit down in the sun garden with a cold beverage and just take everything in, enjoying nature at its best. You can lie on the raft and bob around with the waves, sit on a bench at the end of the pier, maybe drop a line, or lounge in a chaise on the 8'x16' sun deck above the water. Count on some wave sprays coming off the seawall to cool you off as the boats pass by! For some exercise, the path around the lake is just shy of 4 miles. You can make it shorter depending on your preference, but it is a wonderful outdoor workout, casual walk or bike ride. For those looking for water toys, bring your own or there are local rentals available by the day or week. A PWF shore station is available for your Jet Ski and a boat or pontoon can be tied to the pier. We hope that you enjoyed the virtual tour and can picture yourself at the lake sending texts, emails or post cards from Driftwood ice cream shop with pictures saying Wish You Were Here! Thank you so much for your interest in our property and we look forward to accommodating you. Ken & Leslie
