About the Property
5 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 14
In our family, vacations are about enjoying life and making wonderful memories- together. Life is too short and quality time to scarce to waste on ordinary experiences. So when we are looking for vacation destinations and four season fun, we say go big or stay home.
Is your family like minded? If so, then please consider making memories on our 1.5 acres of lush, terraced, manicured lawn, with mature oaks and 300' of beautiful lakefront on tranquil Stone Lake.
You get the best of both worlds all year long with the convenience and luxury of 2500 Sq. ft of comfortable living space (5BR/4Bath) and the lake views, open space and large trees worthy of a state park. This home accommodates 12-14+ guests (More if you want to stick the kids in a tent by the lake shore) and comes complete with DUAL KING MASTER SUITE'S WITH PRIVATE BATHROOMS. One with an authentic jacuzzi two person tub and a private glass sliding walkout to enjoy your coffee while watching the sun come up over the lake. The other with stunning views of the entire property. Regardless of whether it's Spring, Summer, Winter, or Fall, there's something for everyone.
This fully furnished lake front home is situated with a football field's worth (yes it's true) of lake front, open space and shade trees and ample onsite parking. This property is perfect for a romantic getaway or a large family gathering, with cookouts, campfires and even tent camping by the shore, all while overlooking all sports Stone Lake. Skip stones off the dock and admire the beautiful and historic Cass County Courthouse in the distance across the lake. It's our little piece of heaven.
Want to stay in? Life is still Great on Stone Lake! The fully furnished lower level recreation room complete with a bar, LCD TV, electronic dart board, and........Brunswick pool table (that converts easily to a competition ping pong table) whew!! Oh, it also offers 12' sliding glass doors for walk out access to the truly HUGE concrete patio with over 750 sq ft of grilling (on our COMMERCIAL GRADE GAS GRILL) and entertainment area (Yes, we go crazy big!)
Awesome! We do too (Eight - yes really) Kids will go wild (and be out of your hair if need be) swimming, playing on the swing set, exploring the lake shore, pitching a tent by the shore or just playing games in the large yard (did we mention it's like a football field?) Are you worried that the kids will whine if it rains because there's no X-Box? (Don't worry we got you covered there too with an X-Box 360, but bring your own games.)
Book in the winter and ice fish in the annual Stone Lake ice fishing tournament. Got kids or are young at heart, sled down one of our 250' hills or hop over to Swiss Valley Resort 20 minutes (13.77 miles) away to get your ski or snow board on!
Got a Huge Family (Like Us)?
We've got good new for you! We own another property right next door!
Our adjacent Stone Lake Family Cottage (VRBO 414250) is a cedar sided beauty that sleeps 8-10. Its spacious deck offers the best views of the lake while having breakfast or grilling with the family. Its sandy beach is a stones throw away and fenced in yard makes it safe for both children and pets.
If the dates are available, rent both properties to host 25-30 guests. Each with stunning views of the entire property. Regardless of whether it's Spring, Summer, Winter, or Fall, there's something for everyone.
Got Boating Needs?
Great!, We also have an onsite boating package rental available (additional cost) that includes a paddle boat, canoe and Pontoon, see rate section for pricing. Please bring your own water toys, etc., there's plenty to do.
Got a Request?
Looking for anything else? Let us know and we'll see what we can do, but please first call to reserve your week of memories you won't forget.
We hope you will come stay with us and experience why 'Life is Great on Stone Lake!'
With much Love and Fun,
Kevin & Kyra Weber

About the owner: Growing up in Michigan and Ohio respectively, we have always loved the outdoors and healthy lifesyle that it brings. Life is Great is one of our family motto's (another is no Whining!) and we hope you enjoy our lake home as much as our 7 kids and two grandkids do.
Why the Owner Chose Cassopolis, MI, USA:
Plain and simple, we bought this property for our family to enjoy all year around. Not just the views which are truly beautiful and the serenity they bring, but also the large lush lawn and mature trees. Being close to Diamond Lake, Notre Dame, Swiss Valley Ski Resort, Chicago and Detroit doesn't hurt either. :-)
The Unique Benefits at this House:
With over 1.5 acres of lawn and 300' of open access lake front, we truly feel we have the best of both worlds, a great house, a large open yard for games and entertainment with mature oak trees, deer who visit and easy access to beautiful Stone Lake. Come winter, we can sled down one of our 250' hills, ice fish or hop over to Swiss Valley 25 minutes away to get our ski or snow board on.
