About Cindy Wilcox

We are a family owned lake house. Our grandchildren are the sixth generation to enjoy the home and lake.

Cindy Wilcox purchased this house in 1890

Why Cindy Wilcox chose Michigan

Wonderful family friendly home with shelves filled with children's books, games and beach toys. The lake bottom is sandy with easy walk in access as well as a great dock structure. Mooring poles and ties are also available if you have a boat or choose to rent a boat at the local marina.

What makes this house unique

Our lake home sits directly on the lake not in the bay nor the channel. We are twenty minutes from Kalamazoo and Battle Creek and approximately two and a half hours from Chicago and Detroit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a relaxing time on a beautiful lake. We were very comfortable and Lang Properties were very easy and flexible to work with. Definitely would rent again.

Excellent Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with 6 adults and two children. House was extremely clean, comfortable and felt like home. Home lacks nothing, but maybe a dishwasher - but that would not stop us from renting again! Bedrooms are roomy, cheerful and comfortable. Loved the eclectic, rich family history decor! Right on the lake, unfortunately for us the weather was not cooperative, but great views and boat rentals are available. The enclosed porch became the private play area for our one year old grandchild! Young adults were able to utilize taxi service to and from Kalamazoo. Neighbors were friendly and Owners were great to work with. We got in some golfing at the local Golf Resort less than 5 minutes away offering 5 courses. Washer and dryer available, linens, towels, everything you need to make it an extremely comfortable vacation. Would rent here again.

Dated, Run Down, Water and Electrical Issues

  • 1 of 5

Stayed at this home for extended period of time. Had multiple water and electrical issues. During our stay owner asked for permission to enter home to work on heating system. Shortly after we noticed our daughters piggy bank missing, contacted owner multiple times for info on who was in the house and she would not provided. Very nice lot but home leaves a lot to be desired, especially with electrical and water problems. Much nicer, newer and more honestly ran places on Gull Lake. Would not recommend.

Owner's Response: We are sorry the winter you spent at our cottage was unsatisfactory. Unfortunately, due to the unusually cold winter the pipes froze. We worked diligently to ensure a timely repair, including after hours service calls. Due to the inconvenience a financial adjustment was offered. We try very hard to exceed the expectations of our renters and we are sorry that you did not feel this occurred.

Absolutely Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

My family had a WONDERFUL time at this beautiful home that sits on the shoreline of Gull Lake. The house is lovely, accommodating, and has a touch of the owners' family history that is inviting and welcoming. The lake is beautiful blues and greens with clarity to the bottom. The marina is nearby which makes it very easy to rent paddle boards or boats. Town is a mere five minute drive away and there is a small store and golf course restaurant to which you can walk. We can't wait to rent this home again! One of our best vacations ever!!

Almost heaven!

  • 5 of 5

BEAUTIFUL "upscale" clean lake and GREAT "antique-like" lake home. Bright, clean, fully stocked (even beach towels and washer & dryer) some indoor games as well as outside sand toys, extra grass lot for fun, shade trees, comfortable beds/pillows & nice linens. Lots of seating for meals inside and out. Extra sections at end of dock with chairs like a sun deck over water! (Mooring posts & can rent boats from marina to see all of lake and anchor at sand bar) Has smaller sized bathroom and no dishwasher, tisk, tisk ; )

GREAT OWNERS and nice neighbors.
