About Paul Halloran 630-835-6057

This is our summer home, we have two in the area both my brother and I share. I live in Chicago, 90 minutes from the lake and my brother lives outside of Milwaukee 3 hours from the lake.

Paul Halloran 630-835-6057 purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Paul Halloran 630-835-6057 chose Southwest

Only 90 minutes from Chicago. It has been a wonderful getaway and a chance for our families to grow closer together. I have seen our kid's gain great confidence as they made it to the raft for the first time, caught a fish, got up on skis, dug in the sand and found what they believed to be dinosaur bones (Sticks). One day the girls found a small pool of water near the lake filled with hundreds of tiny frogs, they scoop them up by the cupful and stood at the road and attempting to sell these tiny frogs to the neighbors in hopes they would earn enough to buy a cone and a sweatshirt at the Driftwood. The simple things are good; the smell of food on the grill, the sound of the wind through the trees and the glitter of the sun off the water. It is fun to eating dinner outside, to take a sunset cocktail cruise on the pontoon boat. Just getting a chance to catch-up, without the distractions of computers, and TV shows and later sitting around the fire watching the kids incinerate marshmallows is great. I am always amazed by how bright the stars are away from the city. Dewey lake has always been great, the time we spend at the lake is never disappointing.

A Beautiful Vacation Resort Area For Vacations & Week-End Getaways

The Sister Lakes area includes Round Lake, Big Crooked, Little Crooked, Magician, Dewey and Cable Lakes. In 1877, a post office was opened between the 'Sister' lakes of Round and Crooked, thus the name.

We are not only blessed with beautiful lakes, we are also located in the heart of the fruit and vegetable belt of Southwest Lower Michigan. Be sure to visit our local farm markets this summer.

Our area is the ideal vacation destination to enjoy all four seasons. We welcome you and know you will enjoy the area as much as we do.

We hope to see you soon!!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We vacationed here last summer. What a great place. In the evenings we adults stayed in the main house and the kids hung out in the back building. They watched movies, listened to music. There was a disco light and a strobe light that seemed to keep them entertained as well.

During the day we really enjoyed the lake. Dewey Lake is a large and very quiet Lake. We were able to rent a pontoon boat from one of the local marinas.

We will definately stay here this year. Great time.

Great place on Dewey Lake

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay on Dewey Lake. The house is great with plenty of room. The kids loved the Boat House in back. We spent hours on the pier and in the lake. Kitchen was great to cook and serve meals. Thanks for the Great Lake memories!

Good set up

  • 5 of 5

Great option to get into the sister lakes action. Dewey was a very clean lake and our daughter loved splashing in the shallows. Very comfortable 4-bed that does the trick for the week and nice sitting area up front.

Nice grill and setup in the backyard sitting area for dinners outdoors.

Nice cottage with easy water access

  • 5 of 5

This is a nice rental for two families (four adults, five kids). There was enough space and the building in the back was a nice place for the kids to play and get away from the adults. Property was clean when we arrived. Our only small complaint was that there were some ants in the kitchen and a few flies in the bathroom... however, given that this is a lake house, we weren't surprised by that. Overall, we had an excellent trip.

So much fun and yet so close to home!

  • 5 of 5

This is truely the best of both worlds... close enough to home and yet far enough away to relax and enjoy all that SouthWestern MI has to offer. Dewy Lake is perfect for boating and fishing or even water skiing. The local area is a vertual bread basket with many different orchards and farm stands. Also, if you want to take it up a notch, Four Winds casino is only about 30 minutes away.

My wife and 3 daughters will always remember the starry nights and the sounds of the country. The accomodations were just right. When we needed to just sit back and relax, the comfort of AC while we enjoyed the sound system and TV was perfect. The kitchen allowed us to cook the treasures discovered at the local farm stands. All in all a very relaxing time and a ride that's easy on the gas tank.
