Pinckney house description

You will love the beauty and calm of of this amazing lakefront vacation home. The deck is a perfect spot to watch the boats go by. Or sit out by the lake and bask in the warm sun. A perfect location, close to Ann Arbor, Lansing, Detroit, and Chelsea- each area offering something for every traveler. September is still warm, fishing and boating is even more relaxing! October is a great time for campfires and fishing. The lake is quiet Our kayaks are available to rent and a trip down the gentle Huron River is the perfect way to see the fall foliage. Our convenient location makes our home a great central meeting place for family to enjoy Thanksgiving Dinner.
Campfires with som'mores for the cool nights is the best way to end the day. ( Firewood is provided.) It is like being up North and away from it all. The holiday season is coming, if you want a beautiful private place to stay, make your reservation now! We have parking spots for the entire family ! We will have the house decorated completely! Please read the notes in the Fall and Winter discriptions below.

Lakefront living: Our home is fully equipped to provide a wonderful vacation for you and your family or friends. In the early morning get up to enjoy the sun rising over the lake. It's beautiful. Later sit out by the dock to watch boats go by, if you get too hot take a dip in the lake. In the evening, a campfire is a must, roast hotdogs and sing songs. After,go for late night ride to experience the starry night and the full moon, its so relaxing...
Our home features three private spacious bedrooms, and 2 1/2 baths. The main bedroom has a private full bath with a wirlpool tub, nice way to end the day! Our kitchen and living room are open and face the lake, giving you beautiful views at all times. The deck has large comfy chairs, great for reading or just relaxing. The converstation room has a gas fireplace, and is perfect for those who want to read or just have a quiet conversation. It is also a favorite place to set up our queen sized air mattress for extra guests. It has a half bath very close by. We have full internet services for your convenience. (Cable HD TV included)

Children love our home for the swimming, fishing and large sand area in which to build sand castles. We now have a pontoon boat that is larger and very comfortable and is included for your summer rental. If you want to explore all of the lakes, we have maps of each lake and directions for you. If you have GPS on your phone, this will work on the river and is quite interesting to use. The Huron River is beautiful and it is an experience you shouldn't miss. Call us today and book your summer vaction now! Your family will have a great time!

What to do, when you're not on the lake???: For your dining pleasure, you can boat to Zukey Lake Tavern. It is appropriate for the entire family, and has a vast menu. Go on a Wednesday night for their delicious large specialty pizza and receive a free Zukey Lake Tavern Tee Shirt. There are many wonderful other dining experiences within a 5 mile radius, just head to M-36 and go in either direction. A list of area restaurants will be in your Welcome Packet.

For the Golfer, there are ten public courses within ten miles, My favorite places are the Links At Whitmore Lake and Whispering Pines Golf Course. The Links is very reasonable and offers an unique golfing experience.

For the shopper or movie buff, head into Ann Arbor or Brighton there are malls and resale shops everywhere!
For the those who enjoy walking and riding bikes, the Lakeland Trail is less than 1/2 mile away. You can ride all the way to downtown Pickney and Beyond! (20 mile path)

Fall and Winter on the Chain: The Huron River Chain of Lakes in the fall is beautiful. The abundant wildlife is easier to see, and the flocks of birds heading north overhead is amazing. In November (late fall) the river is a popular duck hunting spot.
Football fans travel here to attend the nearby football games at the University of Michigan, they enjoy the peace and quiet at the end of the day!

We like to decorate the house for the holidays, so your family photos will be complete with a decorated tree and the fireplace will have stockings to fill! The holiday dishes are available for your use, and your Christmas table will be beautiful! After dinner relax around the gas fireplace for coffee and conversation with those you love. Please call if you have any special needs to make your holiday special and complete!
