About the property

Located within 3 wooded lots on over 1.5 acres, this Cape Cod home grants you water frontage to a private lake. Enjoy country living in the city with convenience to all your shopping needs. Spend your days relaxing at the lake, fishing, swimming or kayaking in the summer. In the winter spend your days ice skating, playing hockey, or ice fishing. And be sure to keep an eye out for the wild swans who call the lake home!

The home has 2 bedrooms on the main floor with one queen bed and another room with two twin daybeds with the availability to turn either one into a king bed. The main floor also features one full bath. In the kitchen, a new fridge and new gas stove (for the chef in the family!) and other recent updates in kitchen to complement the unique kitchen design features from the 1950’s. Also on the main level, there is a multi-purpose 3 season room for enjoying the views from indoors and for drying off indoors after a swim in the lake. Lower level walkout basement has new washer / dryer. Outdoor patio with gas grill also at this lower level. Lovely original interior elements from 1950’s (i.e. Mamie Eisenhower inspired bathroom). Large TV in the main room with full cable, including HBO and Netflix.

Recently remodeled master suite upstairs, with a queen bed, HDTV, recliner couch, desk and 1/2 bath. Electric baseboard heaters for custom temperature control.

Enjoy spending time together at this lovely property. Whether you enjoy time down at the lake or just the peace and quiet of nature, this home is the right fit for you!

Relaxing property on a quaint lake

Love the old house charm this property has. Lots of room for the 4 adults. We had an extra room we didn't even use. Would stay here again.

Awesome Time!

  • 5 of 5

5 of us guys slept very comfortably in this home and had a great time. The owner is awesome and a great pleasure to work with. Plenty of space for 5 guys with bowling gear and golf clubs. We had a blast and would not hesitate to reserve again.

Grand Rapids

  • 4 of 5

The house was so cute. We loved the original cupboards and look of the home. The only suggestion I have is another frying pan or two to make cooking easier. Dustin was very helpful and available.

Owner's Response: Thanks again for staying and the review! I will definitely add in another pan or two to facilitate that, thanks for the feedback. Take care, Dustin

Just as presented. Under a little improvement work, but clean and comfortable just the same

  • 5 of 5

Close to great restaurant life. Really pretty piece of property. Stayed with my wife and two Grandsons, they had s riot outside with the duck pond, feeding goldfish crackers to the fish off the fishing dock (no fish, but the two year olds thought they were saving the world). Our daughters and son in laws joined us for dinner one night and the grill was fantastic for steaks and potatoes.

Owner's Response: Thanks for posting James, was really glad to have you all out. Since you last visited I was able to transform the upstairs space into a fully functioning master suite. If you are ever out again, I'm sure you'll find that space to be even more relaxing then you did before. So happy you all had a great time out at the house and enjoyed the lake! Thanks! Dustin
