About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

Come and enjoy this relaxing, open-concept, Michigan lakefront 'home away from home.' Located in the middle of Michigan near Clare. We have recently renovated the main floor and kitchen. You and your family can't help but have a great time with 93 feet of lake frontage with a sandy bottom for swimming. The cottage has 1500 square feet, with 3 bedrooms and one large bathroom on the main floor and a half bath upstairs.

Activities include swimming, boating, biking and fishing for bass, bluegill, crappie and pike.

Amenities include a picnic table and outdoor furniture, gas barbecue and smoker, rowboat, 4-person paddleboat, 2 kayaks, aluminum dock, swim platform and firepit. A free public boat launch is available to launch your boat, pontoon or jetski.

Lake George is a 134 acre all-sports lake. There is no wake from 7:30pm-11am. This allows for both high energy boating, and quiet-time for fishing or relaxing by the bonfire.

PLEASE NOTE: Water is 2-3 feet deep at seawall with gradual drop off. Depth at swim platform is around 5-7 feet. We rent Friday to Friday. Check in time is 3pm and check out time is 1pm.

A wonderful week on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

This property is beautiful! Our family of 4 spent everyday swimming, kayaking and relaxing in warm Lake George. The cottage is super clean and beautifully decorated with everything you would need for your vacation. Gorgeous kitchen! Our daughters (10&11) loved the loft and the huge board game selection. The beds are comfortable.....we all slept great! There is no cell service, but they have wifi. Their neighbors were friendly, without being intrusive. Great communication with the hosts, who are more than gracious and hospitable. Our family would stay again in a heartbeat!

My kids loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week! The house comes with fishing poles, 2 kayaks, a row boat, and a paddle boat. My kids (ages 11, 7, 4) kept themselves occupied all week. The house was spotless clean. It’s somewhat far from town so make sure to bring what food you can from home. There is a Dollar General in town, along with a few other gas station type stores. For major grocery shopping, you’ll have to go 20 minutes away.

My family spent a week at the cottage and we all loved it! The lake water was like bath water! It was so warm! We loved paddle boating during the no wake hours. The kitchen was perfect for making meals and eating together. There is no cell service or internet. We were "off the grid" for one whole week. The cottage was clean. the area was quiet. Overall, it was a GREAT time!

We stayed at the lake house for a week mid July and had the most perfect weather. Kept local for the most part but did a day trip to Mackinaw island midweek. The lake is beautifully maintained. No weeds, warm water temp and no wake periods in late evening and early morning allowed time for power boats and other non-motorized enjoyment too. Good family time fishing, playing games, kayaking and swimming we had by all. It was nice to "unplug" for the week, as cellular service is basically nonexistent at the property and our 2 teenagers managed just fine with very little whining. :)

Perfect Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

First let me say that Dean and Melissa made planning our rental a breeze. So organized and we knew just what to expect when we got there. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking and it was lovely. Plenty of kitchen seating. Our family included three generations. The grandkids played in the water all day. It's sandy and they could jump off the raft and dock. We had fires every night, we put together puzzles when it rained and took bike rides into town. There are golf courses nearby and the little ones enjoyed fishing with Grandpa. The older kids took their jeep to a local off road track. Thanks Dean and Melissa, we had a great summer vacation!
