About the Property

House, 8 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 21)

Stop looking! Everything you want and need in a vacation home is available to you at The Lake House. The property consists of two homes: the 'Lake House' is a six-bedroom, three-bathroom, fully-furnished home; the 'Road House' sits behind the Lake House and is a completely renovated, two bedroom, one-bathroom cottage. Located on beautiful Intermediate Lake, The Lake House has 130 feet of lakefront and includes a gazebo, dock, firepit, and huge custom grill. The water is shallow and sandy close to shore making it perfect for families with small children or adults who like to tie their rafts to the dock and soak in the sun.

The home is surrounded with decking in the front and backyards and has two picnic tables, a swing, and lots of tables and chairs. Inside, you’ll find three fully stocked kitchens (including a dishwasher), four full bathrooms, eight bedrooms, two fireplaces (gas and natural), and a laundry room. The family room in the lower level has two pull-out sofa beds. In all, The Lake House has sleeping accommodations for 21 (four queens, four full, 1 bunk with full size lower bed, and one sofa bed). You supply the towels, bed linens and your toiletries.

The Lake House is located in Central Lake, Michigan which is just minutes from Bellaire. It is close to several championship golf courses, skiing, restaurants, shopping, casinos, wineries, and several northern 'hot spots': ten minutes from Shanty Creek and Schuss Mountain, ten minutes from Torch Lake and Lake Michigan, 30 minutes from Charlevoix, 40 minutes from Traverse City and Boyne City, 40 minutes from Petoskey.

The Lake House is available year round for all of your recreation activities: swimming, boating, fishing, water-sports, skiing, snowmobiling, golfing, hiking, hunting, fall color tours, etc. Whether you like to be on the go or prefer to sit and relax, The Lake House offers you all the choices.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We are two sisters following our life long dream of owning a piece of heavenly Northern Michigan!

Why the Owner Chose Central Lake, MI, USA:
We spent our family vacations renting cottages on Intermediate Lake. It didn't take long to fall madly in love with Intermediate Lake and its beautiful surroundings.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
As long-time renters, we know what you're looking for in a vacation home. We're proud of the fact that we manage to provide the little things you're looking for...whether it's plenty of mirrors and lamps, blankets and pillows, wine openers and wine glasses, plastic storage containers and tin foil, or even a rolling pin...we've got it all covered. Outside, we've got the all sports lake, lots of decks, gas and bbq grills, tables and chairs, and, of course, a firepit. All you need is the ability to relax.
