Property description

Built in 1963 by local craftsmen, The Lion's Share Lake House has been well maintained and remains stylish and comfortable for couples or family use. Located across the road from Lake Michigan and steps from a longstanding and well maintained public access, The Lion's Share Lake house is just down the road from Portage Point's popular Sunset House, and is an easy walk from Portage Lake. Fully furnished three bedroom lake house, including five beds (one double, two twins, and two extra long twins), one full bath and one half bath, a great room, fully equipped kitchen, and a wrap-around porch, including a screened area. Living quarters are on the second story, accessible via stairs. The Lion's Share Lake House is a dog-friendly property. Notable amenities include a new washer and dryer, baseboard heat, a focal point wood burning fireplace, cable television and DVD player, dishwasher and microwave, weekly trash service, wood stove in master bedroom, weekly cleaning, plenty of closet space, parking for two vehicles, and camp and charcoal grills. The Lion's Share Lake House is located close to a variety of golf courses, dunes, and summer recreation of all sorts. Spas, festivals, and shopping venues are nearby and highly regarded. Check out goings on in Manistee, Frankfurt, Interlochen, Traverse City, Sutton's Bay, Leland, and Charlevoix.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1963

About: Like my mother before me, I have spent summers in Onekama, Michigan all of my life. My mother's family has owned summer vacation property in the Onekama area for four generations, starting with a kit home and land purchased by my mother's father's aunts, who taught school in Chicago in the early 1900s.

Why Manistee:
I manage the summer rental of The Lion's Share Lake House for my mother Deb and her sister Andrea, the home owners, whose parents Richard and Barbara Bolling designed and built the home in 1963.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
With changes in lifestyles, we are no longer spending all summer in Michigan and we are pleased to open the house for rental to friends, old and new, who know the respite and relaxation of a one week or one month Lake Michigan vacation. We continue to enjoy the Lake House, walks on the beach, and shopping in Traverse City when we open/close the Lake House each year.
