About the Property
4- BR-Great Location Borders Hoffmaster St. Park. on Little Black Lake
In the fall the pace slows but the beauty remains. The fall colors are spectacular
In the winter enjoy cross-country skiing, snowshoeing or ice skating .
The Lakes Mall, Craig's Cruisers, countless restaurants, golf courses, theaters, pubs etc. are less than five minutes away by car.
We will consider parties of up to 8 people however there is an extra charge for groups of over 6 people.
There is a road between Little Black Lake and the house, it is not a major road however there is a fair amount of traffic, due to subdivisions in the area.

We do have another home, listing #322166: Both houses are on Little Black Lake and Hoffmaster State Park and each has High-Speed Wireless Internet and Cable TV. We allow well trained, well-behaved dogs in our homes. We have an ample supply of board games, books, and videos.
Our Unique Area: Little Black Lake is a precious inland lake. Unlike many West Michigan lakes, it is nearly undeveloped. There are only a handful of homes on the entire lake. Therefore, it is an excellent lake for kayaking, canoeing or fishing. It is not unusual to catch 5# Bass, 10 inch Bluegills or large Northern Pike. I should also mention that we do not recommend Little Black Lake for swimming. Although the water quality has been tested and it is one of the cleanest lakes around, it also is a shallow weedy lake and most parts have a muddy bottom. For swimming, we recommend Lake Michigan. You can walk there from our home. It takes about 30 minutes but I assure you if you take the hike, you'll feel like you've found paradise.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.
Paying with a credit card on VRBO protects your payment for up to $10,000 against listing fraud. We recommend completing your booking on VRBO.Learn more
