Why Katie & Jim Skinner chose Garden Township
We built this home in Garden because the prestine Lake Michigan coastline. The Lilac House was named after the amazing lilac bushes that great you along the driveway. During lilac season the aroma is absolutely beautiful.

Breath taking!!! Great for a family vacation!
My family 8, including a toddler rented this house from a Thursday-Sunday. Plenty of room! Huge spaces! Great firepit area on the water. We had the most incredible weekend there and WILL be back next year for sure!!! Katie was amazing to work with and available by phone the entire time we were there if we needed anything at all. The house is just 5 minutes from town which makes little trips to get milk a breeze! It's a little tricky to get to, even for myself who has been on that exact main street 30+ times in my life so maybe a sign for direction would help BUT again, Katie was super helpful and guided us to the home.
Thanks for providing such a beautiful lake home for our family vacation! We can't wait til next year :)
Great place to stay!
Loved it! Stayed here with my grown children. We enjoyed the lake, playing badmi nton, and the beautiful surroundings. Gracious owners greeted us at arrival. Handwritten "Welcome" from their son made me smile every time I saw it!
Wonderful Private Home
We actually planned to stay 6 nights and the owners let us extend our stay 2 more days.The home is comfortable and private. Centrally located to get to sites like Painted Rocks, Soo Locks. We spent some days just lounging around on the deck or dock. We are returning Labor Day. That's how much we loved the home. The owners are just wonderful and attentive. Thank you Skinner Family!
We're so happy you had a great time!!!
