About the Property

4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 12

(See gorgeous video below) Incredible, unique estate located off a long private driveway! Charming, modern 'Swiss Chalet' on 4 acres of serene trees and views, with private cove and inviting beach on a wooded all sports lakefront lot! Stunning waterfall/pond feature is inspirational! You'll think you're dreaming! Granite full service kitchen with stainless fridge, range, dishwasher and microwave! Living room with fireplace and hardwood floors! 3 new full bathrooms! Finished walkout lower level leads to shaded relaxing patio next to stream/waterfall with a four foot fall! You stress will be washed away. Great sunsets off the giant deck! Lakefront fire pit with lots of tree stump seats just like at camp for roasting marshmallows! Closest neighbor is 200 feet away from house! Did I mention that you'll think you're dreaming? No drive-bys without appointment!

Please note: The standard rate does not apply to the peak season which is May 15 to September 6.

Peaceful, Serene, Great Views and Amenities: People head north so they can find beauty, mature trees, a feeling of peace and to feel like they're far from the city. With this exceptional home on four forested and waterfront acres, you're already there. The waterfall makes you feel like you're in the mountains or out west! The beautifully designed and landscaped lot is big enough that you can take a walk or find a quiet peaceful spot all to your own! Enjoy the view of the lake and the house from the tip of the peninsula or sun yourself on the inviting beach and private sun/swim deck. Have a seat on the huge deck that looks down over the lot and enjoy the sunset on the other side of the lake! Watch for Deer, Raccoon, Blue Heron, Beaver, Otter, Ducks, Geese, Swans, Birds, Frogs, Fish. There's good fishing (please catch and release). You're not going to want to leave!

Local Fare & Access to World Class Entertainment!: If you like relaxing, skiing, golf, horseback riding, boating, swimming, shopping or great eating you're in luck. You'll love the Highland House, with a varied menu and great pizza. Walk through neighboring Milford's restaurants and shops. There's great golf at Dunham Hills. 25 minutes away is Twelve Oaks Mall that offers shopping including Nordstroms, Macy's, Lord and Taylor and great boutiques.
Catch major concerts at DTE Energy Theater, while the city and suburbs of Detroit offer world class dining, prime entertainment and classic museums. There is gambling at one of Detroit's casinos like the Motor City, Greektown or the MGM Grand. With a passport you can cross over to Windsor, Canada which is known for fine dining, great views of Detroit, gambling and shopping.

Clean Updated and Cozy!: All the beds are new, plush and supportive. There's plenty of room to spread out, even it is rainy. There's a living room with fireplace and and a roomy family room with second entertainment area. View the lake from many rooms. There's cable TV, videos library, book library, playing cards, board and video games and included free WI-fi. Note: The Waterfall feature may not be running during cooler weather due to possible freeze conditions.
Get inspired! This property and it's majestic trees inspired the website Note: Our video was taken in the morning, when it's shady. Property is not as shaded in the afternoon for fun in the sun!
