About Steven Volk
My wife and I are both in the creative field. We have built several homes but this one is very special. It was over 2 years of finding and restoring or rescuing doors, fixtures, furniture. to build this living monument to the industrial era.
Steven Volk purchased this House in 2018
Why Steven Volk chose Manitou Beach-Devils Lake
Location, Location, Location. The views of the lake and the sunsets are breathtaking. I have been visiting and renting on Devils Lake for 50 + years and when this lot became available we jumped on it.
What makes this House unique
We designed and built this home from the ground up which allowed this to be the perfect vacation rental home. We had traveled the United States utilizing AirBnB and VRBO for years and combined the best ideas and experiences to create this home.

This home was perfect for our stay to visit family and friends! All accommodations were top notch and the home is literally beautiful! The cleanliness was unsurpassed and the owner was the kindest most available owner we have encountered. Perfect for our family of 4. 17 year old son loved the privacy of the lower level and the middle level was perfect for entertaining our family. We will be back
Amazing home, beautiful views, not far from Toledo area!
We came here, a group of 10 co-workers, for our annual office/leadership get together - we had gone to a place in South Haven Michigan previously, but wanted a place that was closer to home (Toledo, OH area) and had more lake life to experience (Lake Michigan is beautiful, but so large). THIS PLACE IS A TRUE GEM! It is all brand new, the exterior is unique, and the interior is very modern but has a cool vintage theme! Something unexpected in every corner of the house!
We really enjoyed the cleanliness of the home, the fun features such as the all home audio system, the hammock, the volleyball/bad mitten court in the water, the multi-level outdoor areas...this home has everything you need!
The only few things that would make this place a little better would be a larger area to have a fire and an on site boat for rental (although I understand it is a lot of liability to take on from the owner's perspective). Overall, we were THRILLED with our stay, that feedback is really being picky; we were able to rent a boat from Rob's Rentals and cruise the lake/spend some time at the sand bar, which was great; just a hassle to have to coordinate to pick it up and drop it off versus if you could just have the boat/leave the boat at the property.
Steve, the owner, was very easy to coordinate with and got back to us quickly the couple times we reached out to him! Check in was really easy and it was SO NICE not having to worry about having/losing a key - there is just a code, which made it so simple!
We WILL be staying at this property in the future - we cannot say enough great things about it!
This was a true drop your bags and enjoy experience. Clean, comfortable, quiet, convenient. I have to say this has been the most visually appealing interior that I have rented, ever! What a lovely inspiring home. We enjoyed swimming off the dock, jet ski, pontoon sunset cruises, tubing -(equipment rented from Rob’s rentals- Manitou Beach). The spacious master suite feels really secluded from other areas of home, very comfortable bed. We had all the kitchen essentials and plentiful beach towels. Out of 10 people the only complaint was the pull out sofa bed downstairs was uncomfortable per 2 adults “you can feel all the hills and bars of it”. No complaints for the bunk room and bedroom downstairs. Steven the owner communicates well for this rental. I would absolutely stay here again. My favorite was waking up in the am to a lovely view of the lake and stillness. It took me 4 days to realize I wasn’t hearing honking and sirens. A nice decompression.
This is a beautiful home, we all had such an amazing time. Being able to wake up on the water each day was incredible. The check in/out and instructions provided by the home owner were seamless and easy to follow allowing us to have a stress free trip! Thank you!
Beautiful home! We had everything we needed for the week from every cooking utensil possibly needed, to beach towels, games, speakers to play our music, etc. Very comfortable home and gorgeous view of the lake. Extremely clean and that is coming from a family that has high standards of cleanliness. My family would definitely rent it again. We were sad to leave at the end of our stay.
The location is secluded enough to give you the private vacation feel on a 1330 acre all sport lake; but still convenient and minutes away from restaurants, bars, grocery stores, etc. This property is also just a few miles away from beautiful golf courses, Michigan International Speedway and Wildlife Recreational Areas.
