About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 7-8)
This is truly a get-a-way back to nature. You will find plenty of ducks, geese, different types of birds and wildlife. Just don't bring any frogs home in a shoe box, please! We like to keep all creatures in their natural habitat.
Whether you like to enjoy relaxing with a morning cup of coffee watching the fish jump out of the water or watching the tranquility of the waves or just want the excitement of tubing, water skiing, fishing, fruit picking, sledding, snowmobiling, ice fishing or just simply watching the excitement of your child finding water creatures, this is the place for you.
Snowmobilers welcome! Because of being in the Snow Belt, winter brings great snow packed trails for Snowmobilers. Trails are marked.

About the owner: Terry and I bought our Summer Home on Big Crooked Lake about 20 years ago when our daughter was about 8 years old. We share a lot of wonderful memories full of fun, adventure and enjoyment. Currently, we live in the South Suburb of Chicago and are still looking forward to many relaxing weekends in our Year Round Michigan Home.
Why the Owner Chose Dowagiac, MI, USA:
Sister Lakes is a very popular area full of vacationers, great for families and nearby attractions. It is only 90 miles from Chicago and easy to find where lots of relaxation and stress-free environment awaits you. When you live in a busy city all your life, you need a quick get-a-way from the rat race. Also, Sister Lakes has many adjacents lakes with Public Access. So, if you want to get adventureous, feel free to hop on to another lake. We are minutes away from quite a few attractions: ** 15 min -- Movie Theatre in Benton Harbor ** 15 min -- Benton Harbor -- Shopping, Many, Many Restaurants, Go Karts/Batting Cages/Miniature Golf. ** 20 min -- Four Winds Casino in Hartford, MI ** 20 min -- St. Joseph, MI (Curious Kids Museum)and much, much more. ** 30 min -- South Haven, Mi ** 30 min -- Deer Forest (Coloma, MI) ** 30 min -- Wine Touring in Kalamazoo ** 30 min -- Kalamazoo -- Air Zoo Museum ** 45 min -- Warren Dunes ** 45 min -- Shopping at the Lighthouse Mall in Michigan City, IN ** 45 min -- Four Winds Casino in New Buffalo, MI ** 60 min -- Saugatuck, MI ** 90 min -- Battle Creek, MI (Binder Zoo) ** 2 hr -- Muskegon's Michigan Adventure Water Park and Amusement Park ** 3 hr -- Henry Ford Museum You are so close to many attractions that I cannot list them all.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Water sports, fishing, watching the sunset over the lake, outdoor dining, late night marshmallow and wieney roasting, telling stories around the campfire, taking nice long evening walks, taking night boat rides. This is really living. Sister Lakes is a series of Lakes adjacent to one another. This area starts hopping from Memorial Day to Labor Day. A 3rd Lake, Little Crooked Lake, is connected to Big Crooked by a tunnel that can be accessed with a canoe, row boat or paddle boat. The tunnel is on 95th Street. Make a right from our pier with the paddle boat and it's about 1/2 mile straight up. This is worth exploring. You could always go to the other lake to fish or swim.
