About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12-17) on beautiful Dewey lake with beach

This newly remodeled beautiful year round home is nestled on 100 feet of sandy lakefront property in Sister Lakes, Michigan. This home is perfect for a large family or two to comfortably share and enjoy. In addition to the beautiful lake views this property is near multiple apple, peach and pumpkin farms for fall family events. Enjoy bonfires by the lake as you enjoy the beautiful Michigan autumn.

The family room opens up to the kitchen and they share a double sided gas fireplace for those cozy evenings. These two rooms offer full views of Lake Dewey.

In addition, the finished basement offers additional living space with two additional bedrooms and 1 1/2 baths. Also includes large dining area with access to lower deck and beach.

The home offers several T.V.s, a DVD player for the kids to enjoy when they are resting from all the fun on the beach and in the water. The wrap around deck is your entry to the 100 feet of private lakefront. This area provides private beach area for bags, volleyball and other fun filled games. The private dock is perfect for fishing, sitting in the sun and entry into the lake. The property is tree lined for those who prefer a more shaded area.

This lake is equipped for boats, jet skis, tubing, water skiing and more.

In addition to all the living space, there is a three seasons room off the kitchen that provides another spectacular view of the lake. This room is ideal for eating meals on the large picnic table and playing games and cards.

We hope you will enjoy this home as much as we have and will have many vacation memories to share with your family and friends.

Why Tom Matarelli chose Southwest

We are working with several local contractors on 2017 improvements. This fall and next spring, we will be adding a new extended driveway for parking 10+cars; cleaning up the yard with retaining walls, masonry work and landscaping; we are adding 15 tons of sand to create the best beach on Dewey. We are repairing and painting the deck. We will be adding walkways and lighting around the yard and beach. Inside we are installing a second refrigerator and a beverage cooler to the lower game room, and updating the cookware. You will notice a new fire pit near the beach and cloths lines for wet towels. And what is a beautiful yard without toys! We will be creating a renter-accessible shed to store our fishing poles, volleyball nets, bags, extra propane, and other goodies for our renters to enjoy.

What makes this house unique

This is a great family get away. Perfect for a group or families to spend time together. 3.5 bathrooms are completely remodeled along with remodeled basement for 2016 summer and fall season. Plenty of parking, sitting, dining, and entertainment areas and excellent for families with children.

Updated, clean, and spacious vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for a weekend getaway with my family and friends. It was very clean, the rooms were large, and there are plenty of bathrooms. The view of the lake was beautiful, and the beach is huge. I would definitely stay here again!

This is the sixth year we have rented this home. It has become our traditional family vacation - for family members ages 84 to newborn. It has everything - the recently remodeled house is spacious and has plenty of room for our big group. It has a great beach, a huge yard, and one of the best features - the screened in porch. The house has recently sold - and the new owner has been very accommodating. They have plans for updating - which I am very anxious to see - although it is hard to imagine how this house could be nicer. I am looking forward to continuing our vacation tradition - and renting again next summer.

Excellent place to stay with a big family!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we have stayed at this fabulous lake house. The house has recently been sold to a new owner and both have been great to deal with. The house consists of 5 bedrooms and 3 1/2 bath. There are plenty of beds to sleep at least 12+.

Waterfront property is the main reason we keep renting this house. It has a wonderful beach area for the kids and a dock to fish off of or tie a boat to.

All bathrooms and basement are refinished with plenty of room. The house is kept clean and well maintained.

The new owner has also made some upgrades such as new patio furniture and gas grill.

I highly recommend this house to rent for summer vacation.

Great job updating !

  • 5 of 5

I wrote a review 2 years ago on this lake house because I was very disappointed with the odors this home had. I returned to visit my friends again this past July 2014 and was VERY impressed with the updating (remodeling) that has been done. Absolutely the best vacation home anyone could ask for !! The owners went above and beyond to clean up this home, to give it more room and comfort to its renters. Once again....great job with beautiful updates. I would highly recommend this lake home now. 5 stars from me !

Strong Musty Odor

  • 3 of 5

Visited friends staying in this home and found that the downstairs had a very strong musty, moldy odor. Very overwhelming smell. Would put a normally healthy individual into an allergic reaction. Maybe needs several de-humidifiers or a seepage drainage system installed. Walked into kitchen and gas smell was everywhere...gas leak, new stove ? Otherwise, could have great potential. Not sure if the problem was resolved with new toilets 2 years ago (prior review).

Owner's Response: I am always available should any problems arise. I also have the best housekeepers who assist with any problems. I always try to resolve any issues as soon as possible. We were up several times over the summer and did not notice any strong musty smell. There was an issue with the gas dryer in August that we promptly had fixed by a licensed contractor along with having the gas company out to assess the situation for safety. My first priority is that renters are satisfied. I always make the house available for potential renters to walk through prior to commiting. I also keep in close contact with my housekeepers regarding the house and am updatedon any issus that may arise.
